The Advantages of Soft Luggage

By | Adventure Touring, Blog, BMW, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Reviews, Saddlebags, travel, Video

Eric from Ride Adventures presents a balanced perspective on the relative advantages of soft luggage, using the Great Basin Saddlebag as his example on his Honda Africa Twin

“Hey ADV Riders, today we’re doing a review on soft vs hard luggage systems on a few of our adventure motorcycles. We break it down to 9 categories; protection, weight, waterproofness, durability, ease of access, ease of installation, versatility, safety, and compatibility. Two solid competitors but only one winner. Watch to find out which wins our vote!”Eric Lange, Ride Adventures

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

NEW 2019 Giant Loop Tail Rack Bolts to Rear Plastic Motorcycle Fenders

By | Beta, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Husaberg, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, KTM, New Product, Saddlebags, Snow Bike, Suzuki, Timbersled

After years of testing and development, Giant Loop’s new Tail Rack delivers a rugged, lightweight, low-profile, universal-fitting solution for anchoring saddlebags, tool packs and gear to any motorcycle’s rear plastic fender. Crafted from black anodized aluminum, the Tail Rack features unique stainless steel wire gate carabiner-style clips for quick strap attachment. Stainless steel hardware makes installation quick and easy. Included aluminum spacers slightly raise the Tail Rack, so Giant Loop’s stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps and webbing straps can slide beneath for solid mounting of GL’s Coyote Saddlebag, MoJavi Saddlebag, Klamath Tail Rack Pack, Possibles Pouch and other relatively light, compact items.

Weighing just 9.4 ounces (including hardware and spacers), the GL Tail Rack measures 5-inches wide by 8-inches long x 5/8-inch tall. Four wire-gate closures prevent webbing from disconnecting even when riding in the roughest terrain. The Tail Rack can be mounted in two different positions on virtually any dirt bike, dual sport or enduro rear plastic fender. All hardware required for installation is included (4x stainless steel button head bolts, 4x stainless steel nylock nuts, 4x stainless steel washers and 4x aluminum spacers). Total load restricted to 10 lbs. maximum, as the Tail Rack is designed to provide secure anchor points for Giant Loop Saddlebags and gear, NOT to support heavy loads.

USA MSRP for Giant Loop’s universal Tail Rack solution is $49.

Jeff also uses a Fandango Tank Bag Pro on his Twin. The medium sized tank bag is 8L in capacity, waterproof and attaches securely to the bike with a harness. Two sturdy side zippers make it easy to access the fuel fill or remove the bag entirely for security.

Product of the Week – The Great Basin Saddlebag

A trusted staple in the Giant Loop line up, the Great Basin Saddlebag is the largest in our “loop bag” collection.

We have outfitted an assortment of motorcycles with the Great Basin, and it’s currently on the backs of motorcycles around the globe. In the montage above you’ll find the Great Basin Saddlebag easily mounted on a the Honda CRF250L, Rally Raid CB500X, and Africa Twin, the KTM 1190 Adventure R, the Yamaha WR250, the KLR 650 retrofitted with a sidecar, the Suzuki tu250x, a Yamaha R6 and something random in Nepal….just to name a few.

This bag will carry all that you require for a serious expedition or comfortably carry your weekend provisions.

What we love most about the Great Basin Saddlebag is it’s verstility. This bag, rides rackless, behind the rider where the passenger would sit. The “legs” of the bag affix to the passenger foot pegs or other solid mounting point in the same area and anchors at the rear of the bike via three straps on on an existing rear rack or integrated mounting point. The is bag is 68L in capacity and is sold with three waterproof dry pods which organize gear within the bag plus make it easy to haul things to your camp spot without removing the whole loop bag. A Hot Springs Heat Shield is also included with every bag to keep the Great Basin off the pipe.

The outer material is constructed of tough 22 oz. vinyl coated polyester reinforced with ballistic nylon and, like many of our bags the Great Basin has loops added to the sides of the bag that make it easy to add Possibles Pouches or just affix items with Pronghorn Straps. The “beavertail” cinch straps can be extend to allow for a Tillamook or Rogue Dry Bag if extra capacity is required.

Coyote Saddlebag and Fandango Tank Bag Pro Fitment On Honda Africa Twin

By | Blog, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Tech Tips

Nate, a local Bend customer, came by the Adventure Shop today with his brand new Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L to show us his fitting for his Coyote Saddlebag.

Honda Africa Twin and Coyote Saddlebag

Honda Africa Twin and Coyote Saddlebag

 

At 39L, the saddlebag fits perfectly behind the rider with room to spare for a dry bag or duffle to supplement bigger trips. Even with the passenger footpegs removed, the lower anchor points on the bag fasten nicely to the frame to keep the bag out of the way with zero movement. The shape of the Coyote lends itself well to this bike, as it angles forward instead of down thus  avoiding the wide pipe.

Conveniently the Coyote fender hooks fit perfectly and positively in the Twin’s existing hard luggage mounting points.

The Giant Loop Fandango is also a great fit on this bike, sculpting well over the tank. East to access the fuel fill and see the dash instruments.

Nate is about to head out on the Washington BDR. We thing this is a great set up for his trip!

How to Pack a Small Motorcycle for BIG Adventure: Globe Crosser Steph Jeavons + Rhonda the Honda CRF250

How to Pack a Small Motorcycle for BIG Adventure: Globe Crosser Steph Jeavons + Rhonda the Honda CRF250

“Oh my goodness! All packed up. Its been so long I nearly forgot how to do it! Time to move on again!” – Steph Jeavons, One Steph Beyond

Nearly a year ago, Giant Loop hosted world traveler Steph Jeavons here in Bend, Oregon for an evening slideshow of her travels on Rhonda the Honda CRF250L. While she was here we had the opportunity to upgrade her luggage and gear for another round of travel. Packing all of the essentials for months of living off a motorcycle presents challenges – especially with a relatively small bike like the Honda CRF250L. Small bikes are a specialty here at Giant Loop, and by using our modular, customizable adventure proof packing system, we were able to help Steph organize her gear into multiple small compartments, providing quick, easy access – and helping balance the load on both the front and rear of the bike.

Here’s how Steph Jeavons packs her Honda CRF250L the “go light, go fast, go far” Giant Loop way:

TAIL OF HONDA CRF250L
* Great Basin Saddlebag: Fits virtually any motorcycle built to carry a passenger, anchoring to the passenger pegs and riding on the passenger seat.
* 2 x Possibles Pouches: Tool, tubes and other gear kept handy with external pockets designed to integrate with Giant Loop’s Great Basin, Coyote and MoJavi Saddlebags – and used independently as universal tool and gear pouches.
* Columbia Dry Bag: A large bag for a small bike, but Giant Loop’s double-ended Dry Bags come in three sizes for all bike types and packing options.

FRONT OF HONDA CRF250L
* Fandango Pro Tank Bag: Roomy enough for cameras and essential gear, trim enough for off-road riding while standing on the foot pegs.
* Pannier Pockets: Integrate with Giant Loop’s Tank Bag Harness – and can be used independently – to extend gear carry capacity to the front of the bike.
* Fender Bag: A spare tube or other relatively small, lightweight essential strap onto the plastic fenders of most dirt bikes – and Giant Loop’s Fender Bag stays on, even in the roughest riding.

Customer Review: “Can’t Sing Enough Praises” About Coyote Saddlebag + Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag on Suzuki DRZ400

By | Blog, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, News, Photos, Reviews, Riders, Saddlebags, Suzuki, Tank Bags

Customer Review: “Can’t Sing Enough Praises” About Coyote Saddlebag + Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag on Suzuki DRZ400

Customer post on Adventure Rider:

“I am about to make a bold statement.”

“I finally got a chance to camp with my new Coyote Roll Top Saddlebag and Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag. It’s easily the best setup I have ever owned for dual sport and I’ve damn near owned them all at this point. Can’t wait to see where you guys go with your items in the future. I can say, please keep making roll tops, and please keep the current dry bags. Really awesome features in my opinion. I noticed all the straps are about as twice as thick as any other brand I have used as well. I beat my bike to death and none of this stuff ever moved. The saddlebags already have a few drops on them and I ran into a tree with the right side too. Can’t even see a mark on it anywhere. I also noticed I can put the saddlebags super far back. I never noticed it touching my butt or back the entire time, even riding whoops standing up, and this is with a hydration pack on. This is probably the first time I’ve camped with a setup and didn’t come home not liking something about it. Seriously, can’t sing enough praises.

“In these photos, I am packed with everything needed to tent camp basically indefinitely off the bike. I love that everything is in one place and not in 3 or 4 different bags strapped awkwardly on the back of the bike. Very clean.”

Giant Loop Rider: World Traveler Steph Jeavons on Honda CRF250L with Great Basin Saddlebag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Adventure Proof Motorcycle Soft Luggage

Message from Steph Jeavons: “Still loving the Giant Loop luggage😀”

Steph Jeavons has taken her Honda CRF250L further than any 250cc has been before, so far having ridden to 40 countries and covered over 55,000 miles! In March, we hosted her slide show presentation and her bike Rhonda here in Bend, Oregon. While she was here, Giant Loop had the opportunity to lighten her motorcycle and upgrade Rhonda the Honda CRF250L with our waterproof, adventure proof motorcycle soft luggage packing system: Great Basin Saddlebag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Possibles Pouches, Pannier Pockets and Pronghorn Straps. Go light! Go fast! Go Far!

Steph Jeavons on Honda CRF250L with Great Basin Saddlebag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Pannier Pockets, Tillamook Dry Bag

From her website and blog:
Steph Jeavons set off from the Ace Cafe in 2014 to circumnavigate the world. She is still going, and apparently, happily lost!

Steph has been around motorbikes most of her life with both parents and one of her two sisters riding as well. Her grandmother even rode bikes during the war! Steph herself has been riding since the age of 21. I think you can safely say it’s in the blood. In 2008 she set up her own off-road motorcycle school in the UK as well as desert tours in Morocco alongside the British Dakar rider Mick Extance.

Steph has ridden across the Atlas mountains and in the Sahara five times. She has crossed the US coast-to-coast four times, got muddy in Wales with names like John McGuinness and, just once, nearly punched Carl Fogarty in the face! Steph also worked with Nick Sanders setting up his expedition centre in Machynlleth.

She left all this excitement behind to pursue her dream of riding her motorcycle to all seven continents – solo!

‘I’m certainly no expert and I don’t confess to being a demon on two wheels. This adventure isn’t about speed. It’s not really even about the bike. It’s about living, learning and enjoying! Doing this trip solo on a bike just opens up all the senses and allows me to be part of my environment.’

Steph has taken her Honda CRF250L further than any 250cc has been before, so far having ridden to 40 countries and covered over 55,000 miles! Steph has survived extreme heat, freezing conditions, landslides and wind that blew her off her bike in Patagonia. She has camped, couch-surfed and stayed with fellow bikers along the way whilst avoiding the main roads and sticking to the dirt where possible. She touched down and rode her motorbike on Antarctica in February 2015 after successfully crossing the notoriously rough Drake Passage in a small sailing yacht.

Steph has given inspirational talks to motorcycle shows, groups and communities along the way. She also currently writes for Ride Magazine and ADV Moto as she continues her journey around the world on her little dirt bike named Rhonda.

Honda Africa Twin with Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Great Basin Saddlebag

When Rox Speed FX owner Chris took his new Honda Africa Twin for an adventure motorcycle tour this past summer, he chose Giant Loop’s Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Great Basin Saddlebag for his trip – and he sent us some great pics! You’ll notice that the large passenger handles on the Honda Africa Twin create a space between the pillion seat and the bottom or the Great Basin Saddlebag – a perfect spot to stow away an extra layer or additional riding gear.
