GL Ambassador Danell Lynn Article in OutdoorX4

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Camping, Dry Bags, Events, Giant Loop Gear, News, Overland, Panniers, Reviews, Riders, Straps, Tank Bags, Tech Tips, travel, Triumph

Keep an eye out for this beautiful adventure travel article by Guinness World Record holder and Giant Loop Ambassador Danell Lynn in Issue 36 of OutdoorX4. Written and photographed by Danell, “Colonial Mexico” recounts her travels on her trusty Triumph Bonneville “Amelia”… 

Danell rides with Siskiyou Panniers, Fandango Tank Bag and Rogue Dry Bag on this journey, keeping it a little lighter these days than her world record setting ride of all 50 states in a single year — “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country” — she is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.

“Giant Loop was my first and only bag choice as the ride began its planning. I am so pleased with it. The ease of use, and complete dryness of my gear through downpours, will keep me coming back to Giant Loop.” — Danell Lynn

We are proud to play a role in Danell’s incredible travels. She puts GL products to a degree of testing that would take most riders many years to equal. Her spirit matches our mission as a brand and company. Cheers, Danell!

RIDE WITH US IN SEPTEMBER!

Benvenuto Federico!

By | Blog, Events, News, Photos, Riders, travel, Yamaha

Our dear friend and new Giant Loop Ambassador Federico Tondelli has been on the team for a very long time. GL’s first trip to the huge EICMA Motorcycle show in Milano was in 2011. We had never been in the show, never been to Italy. We don’t speak any Italian. We needed a motorcycle for display in our stand in the USA Pavilion, so I started posting online that we needed a bike parked in our stand for a few days…

Out of the blue, Federico contacts us and offers to let Giant Loop take delivery of his new Yamaha Super Tenere at the show – all we had to do was roll it from the Yamaha stand to ours! We were blown away by Fede’s kindness and willingness to help. 

Since then, he has helped us in countless other ways. Last year, during the off-season for MotoGP (he is now the press manager for the Suzuki team), Federico rode in South America with GL gear and took a ton of beautiful photos.

Here’s shot of dinner from our 2013 trip to EICMA. That’s Fede (second from left) enjoying plate-sized Milanesa at a classic Lombardy restaurant in Milano…

“Dear Harold, I spent the whole morning to find some proper words to express how much honored and proud I am to read these beautiful words that you wrote for me, but I couldn’t. So please allow me to just say: THANK YOU. Giant Loop has a very special place in my heart. Not only as a brand, but also as the people like you who I consider a true friend besides and before any ‘business’. My trip in Patagonia has been a true life-changer for me and proved once again how much the GL’s products are well thought, well engineered and well done. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” — Fede

Federico has shared the truest Italian hospitality with us for many years, and has been a steadfast friend and ally for Giant Loop throughout most of our history as a company. Grande Fede!

Giant Loop Supports Powersports Dealers

Giant Loop Supports Powersports Dealers

Why Giant Loop Supports Powersports Dealers

Since launching Giant Loop in 2008, it has been a goal to work with the best dealers in powersports. We believe dealers play a vitally important role in our industry: Dealers are not just stores selling bikes, gear, parts and service at a markup. YOU ARE DREAM FACTORIES!

A lot has changed in the past dozen years, but our belief in and support of powersports dealers has not wavered. We do not view dealers as useless middlemen who simply mark up Giant Loop products. By strategically growing, developing and expanding our manufacturing capabilities, Giant Loop has been able to set industry benchmarks for PREMIUM FEATURES, TOP-SHELF MATERIALS AND HIGHLY COMPETITIVE PRICES while offering dealers excellent margins. This is a win-win-win for consumers, dealers and Giant Loop.

We are here to help you sell more and to be more profitable. Customers choose to shop with you for your product knowledge and expertise, because you have earned a position as a trusted resource and inspire them to see the possibilities — the world of adventure offered by powersports-based outdoor recreation.

And that adds value not only to our businesses, but to the entire powersports industry.

Thank you all!

Giant Loop Coyote Saddle Bag and Fandango Tank Bag at the Dakota 600

ADV Moto Events did a great write up on the Dakota 600 which finished up in late July. Event Organizer, Bill Hearne used our Coyote Saddlebags and Fandango Tank Bag on his Husqvarna 701 during the 4 day ride.

The Dakota 600 is an annual event in Western South Dakota that raises money to support  trail development in the Black Hills and mountain areas of the National Forest System.

“–the Dakota 600, which wrapped up on July 20, 2017, offers a mix of challenging single track, two-track trails, gravel roads and twisty pavement through some of the most stunning yet accessible mountain scenery in the country. And it offers riders a way to help add to the number of trails available in the Black Hills in the future.”

Adventure proof packing systems and gear company Giant Loop will open a new, expanded retail showroom, the Giant Loop Adventure Shop, at its Bend base of operations, located at 63025 O. B. Riley Road, Suite 6, Bend, OR 97703. The GL Adventure Shop offers a community hub for explorers and fun hogs, with meticulously curated ultralight camping, gear and tools as well as the full Giant Loop product line on display and available for test fitting and purchase. All fun hogs and explorers are invited to an Open House on Saturday, May 6, 11 am to 6 pm, at 63025 O. B. Riley Road, Suite 6 in Bend. Beverages, snacks, prizes and smiles will be served.

In recent years, Giant Loop has expanded its product design and development scope to focus on expedition quality gear for extreme conditions outdoor pursuits, such as snowmobiling, snow biking, paddlesports, ultralight camping, backcountry and adventure travel. “Go light. Go fast. Go far.” is GL’s motto and company philosophy. Giant Loop’s product design, prototyping and testing, as well as shipping, receiving, warehouse operations, sales and marketing are based at the Bend location. Since the company’s 2008 start in a downtown Bend office space, it has grown into a total of three, 1300-sq-ft commercial work bays its current location.

Four times the size of the current warehouse showroom, the GL ADV Shop takes its design cues from abandoned homestead cabins in the high desert of eastern Oregon, using reclaimed pallet wood and branding iron accents as the backdrop. Displays feature paddlesports, camping, snow sports, ATV/UTV/4×4, as well as fully equipped dualsport and adventure motorcycles. Bend native Gary Cecil’s 1964 Honda CB77 Superhawk is a center piece — the motorcycle Giant Loop’s owner Harold Olaf Cecil first rode with his dad as a passenger at age 3, cementing a lifelong passion for travel and exploration on two wheels.

Founded in Bend in 2008, Giant Loop has built a reputation in off-road motorcycling as the go-to brand for hardcore adventure. Cycle World Magazine wrote in November 2015 that “The best hard-core saddlebag and tank-bag solution we’ve found is from Giant Loop…. There are cheaper solutions to carrying stuff, but these American-made pieces have been over mountains and across deserts with no issues.”

Giant Loop’s adventure proof motorcycle, snowmobile, snow bike, ATV, UTV, SxS, 4×4 and outdoor packing and gear systems are available from powersports dealers across the USA via Tucker Rocky Distributing, as well as from international distributors around the world. Giant Loop is a rider-owned company that designs and tests products in Bend, Oregon. For inspiration, go to www.giantloopmoto.com or www.giantloopsnow.com. Or call 888-358-8347.

Dust to Dawson Gathering Success

By | Blog, Events, Giant Loop Gear

The Dust 2 Dawson Motorcycle Ride (Not a Rally!) is an annual event which invites motorcycle enthusiasts from across the world to get together and celebrate in Dawson City, Yukon.

Since 1992, old friends and new have been getting together over a common bond: motorcycles. The D2D weekend consists of motorcycle games on unpaved streets of Dawson, a poker run in the historic goldfields, and a banquet full of delicious food, crisp Canadian beer, and a whole lot of fun!

“Because Dawson City is located at the junction of three iconic highways: the Top of the World/Taylor Highways, the North Klondike Highway and the Dempster Highway, you’ll have plenty of options to do some epic riding.”

Check out their Facebook page to get information on next year’s D2D ride.

Giant Loop is proud to have donated to this event which benefits the Dawson Shelter Society, the Dawson Women’s Shelter,  the Healthy Babies, Healthy Moms program, and the Dawson City Fire Fighter Association.
