KTM 390 Adventure Makes a Perfect Fit for Giant Loop Gear

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Dry Bags, Dualsport, Enduro, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Panniers, Photos, Riders, Saddlebags, Straps, Tank Bags, Tech Tips

Local rider and good friend Kathy let GL use her brand new 2020 KTM 390 Adventure to model our gear. This bike is a great “bang for the buck” — super quiet and stealthy. And less than $8,000 out the door!

We ran through a few different combos — mixing and matching Great Basin Saddlebags, Coyote Saddlebags, MoJavi Saddlebags with our Fandango, Diablo and Buckin’ Roll Tank Bags, Zigzag Handlebar Bag, Pannier Pockets, Rogue Dry Bag, Possibles Pouch, Bushwackers Hand Guards and Lift Straps

Test fitting KTM 390 Adventure“Personally, my favorite combo because it’s well proportioned to the bike is Coyote (expands with Rogue and Possible Pouches), Diablo (expands with Pannier Pockets) – plus Zigzag and Possibles Pouches on crash bars if more storage is needed.”Harold Olaf Cecil, Founder of Giant Loop

Thanks Kathy!

Giant Loop — designed in Bend, Oregon. Ridden worldwide

MTK Reviews Round the World Panniers

By | bike packing, Blog, Dry Bags, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Indian, Panniers, Reviews, Tech Tips

Our friend Wes who writes for BMW Owners News Magazine makes great videos and does an excellent podcast as well. Here he unboxes GL’s Round The World Panniers and Pannier Mounts

“When you only get one pannier, it better be a good one. Find out what comes in the kit when you order a Round the World Pannier and Pannier Mount from Giant Loop. Giant Loop sells these in pairs if your bike takes two! The RTW Pannier is a universal fit for any and all motorcycles, I just happen to have gotten one for my Indian FTR 1200 S.” Wes Fleming, Motorcycle Test Kitchen

Thanks Wes!

Round the World Panniers and Pannier Mounts Reviewed

By | bike packing, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, News, Panniers, Reviews, Tech Tips

Check out this review of GL Round The World Panniers and Pannier Mounts written by Aaron Demo for ADV Motorcycle 

“When it comes to soft luggage, there are many options on the market, with a wide range of prices and features. Having returned from a weeklong trip with hard panniers and struggling with packing issues, I went looking for a set of soft luggage with more room than my current hard bags. I also wanted something with compartmented storage options that are easy to get on and off the bike. Enter the Giant Loop Round The World Panniers and Pannier Mounts.”

“These bags are heavy duty and the construction quality is on point. Once the bags were mounted to the GL Pannier Mounts, it only took a couple of minor adjustments to the mounting brackets and they locked up perfectly to the pannier racks already installed on my Africa Twin.”

“To remove the bags, it’s a simple one-handed operation and all it takes is a pull of the lever on the top of the mount, and they lift right off with the handle built into the luggage. The total weight of both bags and mounts comes in at 15 pounds, about five pounds less than my current hard panniers, which don’t have a quick-release mount.” Aaron Demo, ADV Motorcycle

GL Ambassador Danell Lynn Article in OutdoorX4

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Camping, Dry Bags, Events, Giant Loop Gear, News, Overland, Panniers, Reviews, Riders, Straps, Tank Bags, Tech Tips, travel, Triumph

Keep an eye out for this beautiful adventure travel article by Guinness World Record holder and Giant Loop Ambassador Danell Lynn in Issue 36 of OutdoorX4. Written and photographed by Danell, “Colonial Mexico” recounts her travels on her trusty Triumph Bonneville “Amelia”… 

Danell rides with Siskiyou Panniers, Fandango Tank Bag and Rogue Dry Bag on this journey, keeping it a little lighter these days than her world record setting ride of all 50 states in a single year — “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country” — she is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.

“Giant Loop was my first and only bag choice as the ride began its planning. I am so pleased with it. The ease of use, and complete dryness of my gear through downpours, will keep me coming back to Giant Loop.” — Danell Lynn

We are proud to play a role in Danell’s incredible travels. She puts GL products to a degree of testing that would take most riders many years to equal. Her spirit matches our mission as a brand and company. Cheers, Danell!

From Our Friends at HeliLadder

A great father-son adventure. Both riding Kawasaki KLR 650s with Giant Loop gear

“My son left Oregon last September and traveled though the SW, into Baja, and then throughout Mexico. He started the trip off with a very well-used pair of Siskiyou Panniers, and their no-frills durability matched the KLR. I was able to break away and join him on the last couple days of his journey. My ’06 KLR is outfitted with the Mototrekk Panniers, Rogue Dry Bag, Diablo Tank Bag, and the Zigzag Handlebar Bag. As a designer and manufacturer of aviation tooling and support equipment, I can really appreciate your quality gear. It is well made, highly functional, and very durable. Thanks for providing great gear for those of us traveling the lonely backroads!” — Dale Neubauer, HeliLadder of Blue Moon Designs

Dale also owns this classic bike that he has traveled all over the USA on…

Siskiyou Panniers Reviewed on Motorcycle Gear Hub

By | bike packing, Blog, Giant Loop Gear, News, Panniers, Reviews, Saddlebags, Tech Tips

Roy from Motorcycle Gear Hub wrote an awesome review of our Siskiyou Panniers that shows how functional the panniers are for a big cruiser…

The Siskiyou Panniers from Giant Loop are the sort of panniers that you can wholeheartedly trust to ride for weeks on end through all forms of terrains, weather conditions and riding distances. In their raw essence, the Siskiyou Panniers are de-facto rigid panniers without the inconveniences of rigid panniers. Truly, the Siskiyou Panniers are as close as one can get to rigid panniers without having to worry about breaking them in an off, installing absurd racking mounts that require a degree in mechanical engineering or hearing annoying vibrations any time your suspension is at work.Top overall quality, heavy duty, immense storage capacity, epic reliability, utilitarian in nature and supreme functionality for both off-road and on-road/street riders; that’s the Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers in a nutshell. Add their Burt Reynolds‘ virile allure and you’ve got a recipe for a set of panniers that genuinely merit their purchasing with no second thoughts. Motorcycle Gear Hub’s seal of approval and most recommended!” — Roy Lopez

So cool to see they fit your sweet V-twin so well — thanks Roy!

“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

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
