MoJavi Saddlebags With Pronghorn Straps on a Suzuki DRZ400

By | bike packing, FAQ, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews, Saddlebags, Suzuki, Tech Tips, trail bike, Video

Check out this excellent video from Dork In The Road showing how to install MoJavi Saddlebags on a Suzuki DRZ400 with a Tail Rack, Pronghorn Straps and GL Mounts

The Giant Loop Mojavi Saddlebags have been my go-to motorcycle luggage solution for carrying gear. They’re versatile, durable, and easy to install. In this video I’m using the Giant Loop mounts which are an inexpensive and versatile way to add mounting points to your dual sport or adventure bike. My hope is to quickly transition between the different types of riding I like to do: trails, forest exploring and road riding. I dig all of Giant Loop’s products, and these GL mounts are no exception. They’re super easy to install and make setups quick and easy.” — Dork in the Road

Here’s a couple of photos our friend Bob sent us doing a test run with GL Round The World Panniers and Pannier Mounts

“I would think people are planning and gearing up for when the “all clear” whistle blows, or at least things open up a bit. I sure am. When I’m not sewing masks for friends I’m modifying my camping gear. I’ve gotten good at Whoopi slings. I did a (socially isolated) dry run the other day to play with and test new gear.” — Bob Simon

Round The World Panniers on a Royal Enfield Himalayan

“They call it ‘The Last Free Place In America,’ but I’m pretty sure the last free place in America  — or the world for that matter — is the seat of whatever motorcycle you’re riding. Adventure is always on the house, and as it turns out, so is plenty of art.”Jamie Elvidge, ADV Pulse

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

By | FAQ, Fitment, holiday gifts for motorcyclists, New Product, Snow, Snow Bike, Snowmobile, stocking stuffers, Tech Tips, under $60

Confirmed: Tracker Packer is compatible with Garmin’s flagship GPSMAP 66i handheld GPS, 2-way satellite communicator and emergency SOS unit! Our Garmin rep just stopped by the GL ADV Shop in Bend, Oregon, and we had the chance to confirm that our Tracker Packer for Garmin fits the 66i units. It is also compatible with Garmin’s inReach Mini, inReach SE/Explorer/Explorer+.

Stay safer in the backcountry with help the push of a button away. The Tracker Packer holster secures the unit to backpack strap or upper arm, keeping the device with the user, even in the case of a crash or other mishap. We donate a portion of Tracker Packer sales to the Kurt Caselli Foundation.

Easy Access to KTM 690 Enduro Fuel Fill with Giant Loop’s Tail Rack + Saddlebags

By | Adventure Touring, FAQ, Fitment, KTM, New Product, Saddlebags, Tech Tips, under $60

EASY ACCESS TO KTM 690 Enduro Fuel Fill with GL Tail Rack + Saddlebag

Great feedback from Back Country MC in Norway fitting new Giant Loop Tail Rack on KTM 690 Enduro with GL’s Saddlebags:

“Here are two pics of my 690 with the Tail Rack and Great Basin Saddlebag. Coyote Saddlebag fits even better. No problems fitting the Tail Rack to the 690, as the design consists of a plastic fender that mounts and hooks down the tank and the tail/sub fender. There is room for mounting the four screws between the filler neck and the taillights/ cable harness. I have chosen to mount it as the pictures show. The other way around is also possible but then it must be moved a tad more back. With the tail rack it is also very easy to move the Great Basin/Coyote even more back, so it covers the filler. It’s very easy to loosen the rear anchor strap when filling gas and then re-tightening afterwards.”

NOTES: Saddlebag anchor straps can be clipped into Tail Rack’s wire gates for even faster access to fuel! Also, MoJavi Saddlebag fits exactly the same as Coyote Saddlebag if you’re looking to lighten your pack for day rides.

Tech Tip: Installing Double Take Mirrors on KTM 790 Adventure

By | FAQ, Fitment, holiday gifts for motorcyclists, KTM, stocking stuffers, Tech Tips
KTM 790 TIP: Use the Yamaha adapter to install the Double Take Mirror on the right perch of the 790, which threads in reverse! Thanks for confirming Mike Chesney! And if you haven’t already, take those stock mirrors off, store them safely in a box for when you sell the bike, and install Double Take Mirrors, which fold out of the way and are far less likely to break.

Running Over Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder With Truck

By | 4x4, Adventure Touring, ATV, FAQ, Fuel, Giant Loop Gear, Overland, Racer, Side By Side, Snow, Snow Bike, Snowmobile, SxS, Tech Tips, travel, UTV, Video

Today, we answer the question: Can you run over the Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder with a truck without causing leaks or damage?

Can you do this with your plastic gas can? People ask if Giant Loop’s Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is tough, so we put the 5-gallon Gas Bag to the test by running over it repeatedly with a Nissan Titan half ton pick-up truck. Not only did it not pop or leak, it barely left a mark, even when the truck tire pushes it and makes it roll on the asphalt parking lot.

DEALERS: Display Bikes Key to Selling Giant Loop

By | Dealers, Dry Bags, FAQ, Fitment, Photos, Saddlebags, Suzuki, Tank Bags

We tell our dealers all the time that the single most effective sales tool is to set up a bike with Giant Loop gear, stuffed full to show the shape and volume. It’s a simple thing to do, and all of our top selling dealers do it. So, it’s gratifying to get this kind of feedback from Jackson, a manger at our Australian importer, Adventure Moto:

We finally got a bike setup in our Brisbane store with some of Giant Loop’s products on board. Coyote Saddlebag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Diablo Pro Tank Bag and Fender/Number Plate Bag. We’ve had it setup for two days, and we have sold a Coyote, Diablo and Tillamook from it.

Having products displayed on the bike has helped greatly. I’m fitting the new Tail Rack on the bike this weekend.

Keep up the good work mate. Lovin’ your products.

Cheers,
Jackson Manteit
Brisbane Warehouse Manager, Adventure Moto Australia

NEW Tracker Packer™ Ruggedized Holsters Secure Garmin inReach Mini and SPOT Gen3 Emergency Beacon to User for Maximum Backcountry Safety

By | 4x4, Adventure Touring, ATV, bike packing, Camping, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, holiday gifts for motorcyclists, New Product, Overland, paddlesports, Racer, Side By Side, Snow, Snow Bike, Snowmobile, stocking stuffers, SxS, Tech Tips, travel, under $60, UTV

 

 

Adventure gear innovator Giant Loop just released a major update of its Tracker Packer™ line of ruggedized holsters for GPS-enabled emergency beacons/communicators. Two new models, compatible with SPOT Gen3 and with Garmin inReach Mini, feature redundant anchor straps, quick-adjusting accessory arm bands, unobstructed view of and access to all controls and an included redundant tether adding yet another layer of security.

Tracker Packers enable backcountry adventurers who travel beyond cell phone range to stay safer during all of their outdoor adventures — motorcycling, snowmobiling, snow biking, backpacking, climbing, mountain biking, boating, skiing/snowboarding — with help the push of a button away. Following best safety practices, the Tracker Packer firmly attaches the emergency device to the user’s backpack shoulder strap, upper arm or lower leg, reducing the risk of the device separating from the user or not being within reach and in plain sight when need arises.

The Gear Institute recently wrote in a test review that “Giant Loop’s Tracker Packer addresses a real need for those of us who routinely escape the bonds of cell towers, extending the usability of potentially lifesaving technology even in dire situations. Best of all, the Tracker Packer keeps the satellite messenger within easy reach – and quickly accessible – should an emergency arise. After all, isn’t that when you absolutely need the messenger the most?”

Featuring redundant closures, multiple connections, and tether points, the compact and lightweight Tracker Packer is designed to remain secure, even in the roughest, most extreme conditions. By keeping the device in a visible, easy-to-access location, anyone on scene in the event of an emergency can quickly deploy the device’s SOS signal sending the GPS location to an international emergency response coordination center.

Tracker Packers for Garmin inReach Mini and SPOT Gen3 are not just for emergencies. When traveling beyond cell service, backcountry travelers can communicate via satellite text messages, sent and received directly from the Garmin inReach Mini. OK and other pre-programmed messaged can be sent from the SPOT Gen3.

Giant Loop donates a portion of all Tracker Packer sales to the nonprofit Kurt Caselli Foundation, which focuses on the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry. Giant Loop worked with US off-road motorcycle racing legend Quinn Cody to test and develop the Tracker Packer holsters.

Tracker Packer features include a high-visibility tag imprinted with “SOS,” elastic antennae anchor (Garmin only), screen prints of the Kurt Caselli Foundation’s “Caselli 66” logo and Giant Loop’s GL logo, a redundant double hook-and-loop attachment system, a heavy duty hook-and-loop extension band for wearing on the upper arm or lower leg above the boot, grippy backing, foam padding to absorb shock and vibration and a redundant tether cord for additional security.

Constructed with military-specification components and materials, the Tracker Packer for Garmin inReach Mini and Tracker Packer for SPOT Gen3 are backed by Giant Loop’s limited lifetime warranty. USA MSRP is $39. The Tracker Packer is available bundled with the Garmin inReach Mini or SPOT Gen3 exclusively at Giant Loop’s GL Adventure Shop warehouse showroom in Bend, Oregon, and at www.giantloopmoto.com. For more information and to contribute to the Kurt Caselli Foundation, visit www.kurtcaselli.com.
