“I’m super glad I brought all that, because about 70 miles in to the first day and the farthest point from our cabin we got a flat. Luckily I had a tube and tools in the MoJavi Saddlebags, a patch kit and pump in my Possibles Pouch. So I was able to swap the tube and we were on our way. The MoJavi Saddlebags were super secure even on some enduro type stepped ledges. They didn’t get in my way at all and held secure where I mounted them. Super convenient and stable. Thank you!” — Andy Janik, Sullivan Tool and Repair

Nice gear — thanks for going with Giant Loop!

Check out this Bend, OR dirt bike chase with Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebags, Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag and Zigzag Handlebar Bag

Shot with the Insta360, our dude Ryan chasing Instacam distributor Peter on a single track trail. We love how the MoJavi Saddlebag on Peter’s KTM 500 EXC never shifts, bounces or gets in the way. On Ryan’s Suzuki RMZ 450, the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag and Zigzag Handlebar Bag is also equally stable…

With Giant Loop gear, riders can pack less weight in their backpack and more on the bike for better endurance, comfort and reduced fatigue. Like it’s not even there!

Internationally known filmmaker Tolga toured the Taurus Mountains in Turkey with Siskiyou Panniers and Great Basin Saddlebags

We took an opportunity to explore the vast country, overcoming challenges that all adventure riders face at some point. Follow along as our small group immerses into the unique terrain rich with history, culture and new experiences.”Tolga Basol, tolga@ridemust.com

Zigzag Bag, Tail Rack, Possibles Pouch and Pronghorn Straps

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Dirt bike, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, Photos, Straps, Tech Tips, trail bike

Our friend Andy sent us an email detailing how he uses Giant Loop gear to make the magic happen…

Handlebar Bag ,Tail Rack , Possibilities Pouch and Prong Straps“I’ve been using the Zigzag Handlebar Bag, Tail Rack and Possibles Pouch with the Pronghorn Straps. The Tail Rack holds the Possibles Pouch super secure with the Pronghorn Straps. I threw all my tools in there so I always have them on the bike and did some really rocky rides and hill climbs and I was never worried I’d lose the tools. It was great! Not having to worry about my gear being secure is so nice. It gives me the confidence to rip harder sections and never worry. The Zigzag Handlebar Bag is great for holding my phone and snacks and charger. Not having to take my backpack off to get to essentials is great!” — Andy Janik

Good one Andy — thanks!

THE GIANT LOOP on a KTM 500 EXC

He made it, around-the-world!!!

Round-The-World on a KTM 500 EXC

“After 139,870K through 51 different countries on 6 continents over three and a half years — yesterday I finally made it to Bluff, the end of my journey. I hadn’t planned on going there yesterday, but after seeing rain was forecast I decided to head to Invercargill and before I knew it — I was doing a wheelie on the beach. It seems appropriate because this is how my “Forrest Gump” type journey has been mostly, which is unplanned and taking it day by day. I never set out to ride around the world. After Oregon, I decided Alaska was a better ending point. And then, for whatever reasons I thought I’ll turn around and ride it back home to New Zealand. A big thanks to Harold Olaf Cecil at Giant Loop, Dave at Adventure-Spec, and MotoZ Tires who have supported me with gear. But especially, I would like to thank all of you who have either been following my journey on Facebook, opened your home to me or I’ve met in person. I’ve been humbled and grateful for all the kindness I’ve experienced along the way and it’s given me faith in humanity, which is one of the awesome things about traveling. So no matter what journey you have in mind, just go do it and experience the kindness out there waiting for you.” — Aaron Steinmann (photos by Burt Munro)

Soggy Adventure on a Honda CRF250L with Giant Loop Bags

By | Adventure Touring, Blog, Dirt bike, Dualsport, Enduro, FAQ, Fitment, Fuel, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Panniers, Photos, Riders, Saddlebags, Straps, Tank Bags, trail bike, travel, Video

Here’s a great video by our friends at Dork in the Road of a Honda CRF250L equipped with our Fender Bag, Fandango Tank Bag, Mojavi Saddlebag, Gas Bag and Pronghorn Strap

It’s raining, and I’m out riding!  My latest dual sport adventure is a soggy, rain-soaked trip into the woods to explore some logging roads in various states of upkeep.  My Honda CRF250L performs admirably on well-maintained roads, while hopping over downed trees, and exploring long-abandoned and completely overgrown tracks.  Only a dual sport motorcycle could possibly handle all the different types of terrain, fallen rocks, narrow spaces, and other obstacles I encountered on this rainy day logging road dual sport exploration adventure.” — Dork in the Road

An exciting message from Giant Loop Ambassador Aaron Steinmann…

Giant Loop in New Zealand“Three and a half years, 134,000K and 50 countries later my bike finally got cleared by New Zealand customs and is back on home soil. Tomorrow I’ll head north from Auckland towards Cape Reinga and start a top to bottom of New Zealand which is how I started all this sillyness.

“I have included a pic of my 2019 BMW G310 with the Giant Loop product. As you can see I am a big fan of Giant LoopRevelstoke Tunnel Bag, Rouge Dry Bag, Possibles Pouch, Zigzag Bag on my crash bar.
