The KTM 790 Adventure S with Great Basin Saddlebags

By | bike packing, Blog, Dry Bags, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, New Product, Saddlebags, Straps, Tank Bags, Tech Tips, Video

Here’s how GL outfitted the KTM 790 Adventure S using the KTM Spacer Kit to make our horseshoe-shaped Great Basin Saddlebags fit perfectly… 

We also mounted a GL Fandango Pro Tank Bag with Pannier Pockets (tucked-in like they were made for this bike!) and a waterproof Possibles Pouches as externals to the Saddlebags. Then we added Rogue and Tillamook Dry Bags integrated with beaver tail compression straps. Ready to Go. Designed by riders for riders!!!

Insta360 Cam Covers GL MoJavi, Buckin’ Roll and Zigzag Bags

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

“From the rugged Taurus Mountains, to central deserts and towering cliffs, to northern forests, Turkey is an adventure riding paradise. 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

And he sent us these recent photos of his bike outfitted with a Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag and the GL Fender/Number Plate Bag on KLIM’s KTM two-stroke trail bike…

The Ultimate Loop on a KTM 500 EXC-F

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Camping, Dry Bags, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Overland, Photos, Reviews, Riders, Saddlebags, Tech Tips, trail bike, travel

Rider Aaron Steinmann spent three years biking around the world with GL gear on a KTM 500 EXC-F. One of our favorite websites Enduro 21 posted a great article about Aaron’s amazing journey…

“Pack light and keep it narrow to get through doorways. Doing a trip like this on a smaller bike means you have to think a bit more about the gear you are going to carry. I used the Giant Loop Coyote Saddleag to carry my gear in and one Tillamook Dry Bag. The Coyote Saddlebag has three dry bags inside. One had my tools, tubes, filters etc. Another had my cooking equipment and the third my minimal amount of clothing. In the top bag I had my tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, shoes and a few other things. I have two pouches also made by Giant Loop attached to the Coyote Saddlebag and they are a perfect size to fit the Motorex one-litre oil bottles. I also kept a few tools in there so I could tighten my chain or the odd bolt if it came loose without having to dig into my main bag.”Enduro 21

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)

KTM with Tail Rack and Possibles Pouch

By | 10th Anniversary Giant Loop, Adventure Touring, bike packing, Camping, Dirt bike, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Photos, Saddlebags, Snow Bike, Tank Bags, trail bike, travel

Great photo from rider Dave Sorensen…

LaB2V with Giant Loop“Hey guys. I live in CRR and work in Bend. I finally made it by your showroom to watch the tire change demo and check out your gear as I was prepping for the LaB2V ride Thanksgiving weekend. Picked up the Tail Rack and Possibles Pouch during your sale as it looked like the lightest and most durable set up for the event and suited my riding style the best. I was not disappointed! 

I lost my rear light assembly and license plate in a deep road lake I charged through on day one as I attempted to get back on course, pouch and rack stayed solid as I would have expected. 

I saw a lot of people with GL products over the two day ride, obviously it speaks well of your products in the moto community. 

Thankfully I didn’t have to change a flat and had probably one of the best rides of my life thus far! Unusual weather, wet soil and good company made for some epic conditions. Glad I picked up some of your gear to keep the weight off my body and secure. Perhaps we’ll cross paths on the central Oregon trails in the future. Until then keep braaping in whatever environment you find yourselves. Thanks for the great products.”

Cheers, Dave Sorensen

Sweet photo Dave. I remember talking to you about this years LaB2V as I used to live down there. I can’t believe the weather this year, deep snow is like a once every 10 year event. I was actually riding down there mid-december and all that snow made for perfect dirt, just like in Central Oregon. I’m sure we will cross paths out on the trails soon enough, right now I’m trying to ride every weekend. Thanks for the email!

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.

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.
