Please keep it going by sharing it with a straight face!
If you didn’t get the joke – or the juicy “Easter Egg” on the shopping cart check out our page for the EXPANDER, we’re going to leave it up during April. Click the link, read some of the hilarious reviews – and write one of your own – then go to the “shopping cart” to claim your reward…
Rider Jaume writes to us about our new Pronghorn Straps…
“When I’m traveling through mountains or across deserts I can’t take any risks, so I always trust Giant Loop to carry my gear. Light, reliable, resistant and well designed. They have never let me down, which is why they are my constant travel companions. Best regards!” — Jaume von Arend, Fòrum Gastronòmic
Cool, Jaume — we love you too!

Check out this post by Jamie Elvidge on ADV Pulse about taking out a Royal Enfield Himalayan with some Round The World Panniers for a ride in the Southern California desert as she searches for some amazing art…
“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
Giant Loop is pleased to be presenting the Central Oregon premier of the new North East Backcountry Discovery Route film for our March Giant Loop Garage Night at Pro Caliber Bend! Please join us Wednesday, March 18, 6:30pm…
From Ride BDR: “This epic 1,400-mile backcountry tour of the Northeast Region up to the Canadian border winds through 7 states and nearly a dozen state forests on dirt and gravel roads, challenging seasonal and Class IV roads, and twisty tarmac. Expect scenic views, endless forest roads under a canopy of trees, rocky expert-only sections and the highest elevations in the Northeast. Every state delivers a unique adventure riding experience unto itself.”
This film is gonna be amazing — we look forward to seeing you there!
Great first impressions from Roy at Motorcycle Gear Hub…
“GL — Shooting you a quick email as I published an article on my website with my first impressions of the Siskiyou Panniers after having inspected them and gone through their features. I’ll be publishing a more detailed review after extensive testing and taking them touring.
“I’ve pretty much been blown away by the quality and functionality of the Siskiyou panniers. And the article certainly reflects that.
Thanks for the kind words, Roy — we hope to hear more from you soon!
“Attached is a photo of my KTM 790 with your Buckin’ Roll Bags on it for the BDR Movie Premier. We had 160 people in attendance and received lots of positive feedback on my Giant Loop setup. Thanks!” — Jake Hampton, Carl’s Cycle
Carl’s Cycle will be attending our Giant Loop Annual Ride in June – we look forward to seeing you there!
“Lots of room for your gear with room to over stuff. Convenient pockets for quick access and staying organized. Fast to remove or mount with the quick-release pannier mounts installed. No mounting plate left behind on racks when bags are removed.”

“It’s not a race. There is no support and there are no spectators or cheering crowds – just you, your bike and your wits. The Tour of Idaho is a dirt bike adventure designed for soloists and small groups traveling alone and unsupported that begins in Southern Idaho and ends nine days and 1400 miles later in the Selkirk Mountains near the Canadian border. It is very likely one of the most committing and difficult long dirt bike rides in the United States.” – Jimmy Lewis

Attached are a few images from my trip.
Thanks, Seth Spain

“I’ve been using your Coyote Bag since buying this WR-R in 2010 and also have the Great Basin (both old style before the roll-top). I still use them often. I got the MoJavi Saddlebags yesterday and took them for a quick ride around home. I like ‘em.” – David Haynes
