Recent message from a customer who’s out there getting it done on his BMW G310GS with Revelstoke Tunnel Bags

Revelstoke Tunnel Bag on a BMW G310GS

“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. Next will be a Coyote Saddle Bag for multiple day adventures. These small displacement adventure bikes can’t take the added weight of hard boxes and pannier racks. Giant Loop has the answer. I will be buying more Giant Loop products for my adventures next year as well. Thanks!” – Brent Lundevall

Right on Brent!

Tracker Packer Compatibility With Garmin GPS Emergency Beacons: GPSMAP 66i, inReach Mini, inReach Explorer, inReach SE

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.

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.

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.

(BEND, OREGON USA)  For the fifth consecutive year, expedition gear innovator Giant Loop has won a Powersports Business “Nifty 50” award for best new products. For 2018, it’s Giant Loop’s GL Pannier Mount, an ultralight, rugged, stable, quick-connect, quick-release, lockable solution for motorcycle soft luggage and equipment. Constructed of aluminum with a black powder coated finish, stainless steel hardware and a key lock mechanism, GL Pannier Mounts weigh just 3.6 lbs. per pair, including spare keys. In keeping with the company’s minimalist “go light, go fast, go far” design philosophy, GL Pannier Mounts feature just two moving parts, an anchor clasp and a lock, both of which are accessible without having to reach inside motorcycle luggage.

Although specifically designed for Giant Loop’s rack-mounted motorcycle soft luggage, Round The World Panniers and MotoTrekk Panniers, GL Pannier Mounts offer remarkably versatile solutions for attaching gear to motorcycle side luggage racks. Pre-drilled holes provide easy installation of RotoPax® gas cans, water cans and accessories, and strap slots enable virtually any other gear, tools or bags, to be secured to the GL Pannier Mounts with Giant Loop’s heavy-duty stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps.

GL Pannier Mounts are currently compatible with most side luggage rack designs featuring flat, vertical hoops constructed of 16-18mm round tubing. Examples include Givi Outback, Touratech pannier racks and the BMW R1200GS Adventure’s OE luggage racks (Giant Loop adapter required for exhaust side of BMW GSA). Other adapters and mounting options will be available soon. Sold as a set of two with four keys included, GL Pannier Mounts cost $299 USA MSRP (part number PNTM-18R) and $329 USA MSRP with the BMW R1200R GS Adventure adapters (part number PNMT-GSA).

Past “Nifty 50” award winners from Giant Loop include: Fandango Pro Tank Bag (2014), Tracker Packer emergency beacon holster (2015), Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder (2016) and Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top (2017).

Giant Loop 3- and 5-Gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders

5 gallon Fuel Safe Gas Bags with a Polaris side by side

5 gallon Fuel Safe Gas Bags with a Polaris side by side

Giant Loop has added new 3- and 5-gallon Gas Bag™ Fuel Safe Bladders to its award-wining fuel solutions. Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders conveniently transport hydrocarbon fuel for power sports racing in a collapsible welded film and ballistic nylon reinforced container that rolls up or packs flat when empty. Weighing a fraction of rigid tanks and canisters and less costly than racing fuel cells, Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders are also available in 1- and 2-gallon models.

The new larger 3-gallon (11.4 liters) and 5-gallon (18.9 liters) Gas Bags are designed specifically for UTVs, ATVs, snowmobiles, snow bikes (e.g., Timbersled, Camso), 4x4s and overland vehicles, providing a lightweight, compact means of transporting gas for off-road racing on closed courses, as well as for international travel.

In 2016, Giant Loop’s original 1-gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder won a Powersports Business “Nifty 50” award for top new products.

Each Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is individually pressure tested and made in USA by Fuel Safe®, a leading racing fuel containment manufacturer based in Redmond, Oregon.

NOTE: Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders are intended only for the temporary transport of liquid hydrocarbons for racing vehicles used in professional off road and closed course competition racing events. The Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is NOT a portable or long-term fuel storage container as described by ASTM, EPA, ARB or other state or federal agencies.

Flat and unfilled, the 3-Gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder measures 22″ long by 14″ wide. Three heavy-duty webbing and molded rubber handles provide tie-downs and facilitate fuel handling. The 5-gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder measures 29” long by 14” wide, with four heavy-duty handles.

All models of Gas Bags feature two rows of webbing daisy chain loops that prevent the Gas Bag from sliding out from under tie-down straps (not included). Filler necks are standard size, fitting “universal” spouts, such as the EZ-Pour (also available from Giant Loop). Available exclusively from Giant Loop and authorized dealers, USA MSRP is $239.99 for the 3-gallon Gas Bag (GL part FSB18-G3) and $299.99 for the 5-gallon Gas Bag (GL part FSB18-G5).

Tracker Packer review by The Gear Institute: “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?”

Adventure proof packing and gear systems innovator Giant Loop has added a third model to its Tracker Packer™ line of ruggedized holsters for GPS-enabled emergency beacons/communicators, the new Tracker Packer for Garmin inReach beacons and two-way satellite communicators. Giant Loop’s Tracker Packer enables backcountry adventurers who travel beyond cell phone range to stay safer during all outdoor adventures — motorcycling, snowmobiling, snow biking, backpacking, climbing, mountain biking, boating — with help the push of a button away. Following best safety practices, the Tracker Packer firmly attaches the Garmin inReach Explorer or SE device to the user’s backpack shoulder strap, outerwear, or upper arm, reducing the risk of the device separating from the user or not being within reach and in plain sight. Although wearing the Tracker Packer is the best safety practice, it can also be used to attach the device to a vehicle or other location.

Featuring redundant closures, multiple connections, and tether points, the 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 Garmin inReach’s SOS signal sending the GPS location to an international emergency response coordination center.

The Tracker Packer for Garmin inReach is not just for emergencies. When traveling beyond cell service, backcountry travelers can let family and friends know they are OK, and satellite text messages can be sent and received directly from the device.

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. Other Tracker Packer models include the Tracker Packer for DeLorme inReach and the Tracker Packer for SPOT Gen3.

The Honda Africa Twin and Giant Loop Mototrekk Panniers

 

Jeff, from Tucker Rocky recently sent us some photos of his set up on his Honda Africa Twin. He used Givi Quick release side racks (Tucker Rocky and Givi Part #PLR1144) for mounting, looping the quick release loops of the Giant Loop Mototrekk Panniers around the 4 corners to secure.

The bags mount securely with no movement and still leave a ton of space on top of the bike for a dry bag or top case.

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.

Doubletake Adventure Mirrors

NEW! Doubletake Mirrors

By | bike packing, Blog, New Product

Doubletake Adventure, Enduro and Trail Mirrors.

New at Giant Loop Moto, Doubletake Mirror Kits.

Doubletake Mirrors were borne from necessity. The company’s owner recognized a need for a mirror  that would work as well as an OEM mirror to actually see the road behind you, a mirror that would be indestructible–giving way during a crash so as not to damage itself or the bike, and a mirror that folds out of the way completely so that when you’re offroad you don’t have to worry about it.

Here at Giant Loop we chose these mirrors because they’re the best thing we’ve found that is super-light and durable which fits well with how we like to travel.

Adventure or Enduro?

If you plan to fold the mirror down a large percentage of the time, the Enduro is right for you. The long size means the head of the mirror tucks away right behind the headlight. If the mirror will remain extended much of the time, get the Adventure- the more compact design is more stable at highway speeds.

Doubletake Mirrors are sold in sets:

Adventure Mirrors

  • 2 triangular shaped mirrors
  • 2, 6″ RAM Mounts attachment arms
  • 2, ball stud adapters (regular or BMW )

Enduro Mirrors

  • 2 round shaped mirrors
  • 2, 3″ RAM Mounts attachment arms

If you’re looking for something smaller  the Doubletake Trail Mirror is a super-light, off-road option. This mirror can also be used for mountain or road bicycles.
