“I’m super glad I brought all that, because about 70 miles in to the first day and the farthest point from our cabin we got a flat. Luckily I had a tube and tools in the MoJavi Saddlebags, a patch kit and pump in my Possibles Pouch. So I was able to swap the tube and we were on our way. The MoJavi Saddlebags were super secure even on some enduro type stepped ledges. They didn’t get in my way at all and held secure where I mounted them. Super convenient and stable. Thank you!” — Andy Janik, Sullivan Tool and Repair

Nice gear — thanks for going with Giant Loop!

Our surfer buddy Mike sent us this great vista shot from one of his Baja adventures with an old-school GL Colombia Bag strapped to his roof rack…

GL Colombia Bag on a Baja Surf Adventure“I use the Colombia Bag on all my Baja trips – keeps my wetsuits dry and clean on the roof on the way down. On the way home, wet, dirty, stinky wetsuits are bagged up until we get home for a proper cleaning. Thing is bulletproof.” — Mike Honsburger

Internationally known filmmaker Tolga toured the Taurus Mountains in Turkey with Siskiyou Panniers and Great Basin Saddlebags

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

Benvenuto Federico!

By | Blog, Events, News, Photos, Riders, travel, Yamaha

Our dear friend and new Giant Loop Ambassador Federico Tondelli has been on the team for a very long time. GL’s first trip to the huge EICMA Motorcycle show in Milano was in 2011. We had never been in the show, never been to Italy. We don’t speak any Italian. We needed a motorcycle for display in our stand in the USA Pavilion, so I started posting online that we needed a bike parked in our stand for a few days…

Out of the blue, Federico contacts us and offers to let Giant Loop take delivery of his new Yamaha Super Tenere at the show – all we had to do was roll it from the Yamaha stand to ours! We were blown away by Fede’s kindness and willingness to help. 

Since then, he has helped us in countless other ways. Last year, during the off-season for MotoGP (he is now the press manager for the Suzuki team), Federico rode in South America with GL gear and took a ton of beautiful photos.

Here’s shot of dinner from our 2013 trip to EICMA. That’s Fede (second from left) enjoying plate-sized Milanesa at a classic Lombardy restaurant in Milano…

“Dear Harold, I spent the whole morning to find some proper words to express how much honored and proud I am to read these beautiful words that you wrote for me, but I couldn’t. So please allow me to just say: THANK YOU. Giant Loop has a very special place in my heart. Not only as a brand, but also as the people like you who I consider a true friend besides and before any ‘business’. My trip in Patagonia has been a true life-changer for me and proved once again how much the GL’s products are well thought, well engineered and well done. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” — Fede

Federico has shared the truest Italian hospitality with us for many years, and has been a steadfast friend and ally for Giant Loop throughout most of our history as a company. Grande Fede!

Zigzag Bag, Tail Rack, Possibles Pouch and Pronghorn Straps

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Dirt bike, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, Photos, Straps, Tech Tips, trail bike

Our friend Andy sent us an email detailing how he uses Giant Loop gear to make the magic happen…

Handlebar Bag ,Tail Rack , Possibilities Pouch and Prong Straps“I’ve been using the Zigzag Handlebar Bag, Tail Rack and Possibles Pouch with the Pronghorn Straps. The Tail Rack holds the Possibles Pouch super secure with the Pronghorn Straps. I threw all my tools in there so I always have them on the bike and did some really rocky rides and hill climbs and I was never worried I’d lose the tools. It was great! Not having to worry about my gear being secure is so nice. It gives me the confidence to rip harder sections and never worry. The Zigzag Handlebar Bag is great for holding my phone and snacks and charger. Not having to take my backpack off to get to essentials is great!” — Andy Janik

Good one Andy — thanks!

 “Hi Giant loop, I received my Gas Bag and am very happy, thank you. Here’s a photo of how I use it. The Gas Bag sits in the tray of my SXR 1100 Jet Ski and allows me the range to get to our favorite watering hole out on the California delta. I burn 8 gallons of premix with the round trip and the ski holds 5 gallons only. Great product for sure.” — Scott Young

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

From Our Friends at HeliLadder

By | bike packing, Blog, Giant Loop Gear, Kawasaki, Panniers, Photos, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Tech Tips, travel

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…   

Nice Ride!

Thanks Dale — we love you guys…

Our Fuel Bag Reviewed

By | 4x4, Adventure Touring, Arctic Cat, ATV, bike packing, Blog, Camping, Dirt bike, Fuel, Giant Loop Gear, Photos, Reviews, Tech Tips, trail bike, travel

We’re very proud of this product

The Gas Bag

“Space is always a concern when traveling off-road, and the distance between filling stations can be enormous. The Gas Bag allows off-roaders to roll up the empty container and minimize storage when they are empty. They are a very tough ballistic nylon and can be easily moved from the truck and strapped to an ATV, side-by-side, dirt bike, snow bike or snowmobile using the daisy-chain webbing. With sizes of 1, 2, 3 or 5 gal., you can match a Gas Bag to your needs.” — Perry Mack, 4WDrive Magazine

GL Gas Bag

Thanks, Perry — always fantastic to get a great review!
