“I received my Fandango Tank Bag this morning. Can’t thank you enough for getting it to me asap. A few years ago my son had purchased the Siskiyou Panniers and the Fandango Tank Bag and he recommended your gear 100%. Looking forward to getting a lot of use out of the Tank Bag and I’m sure I’ll be purchasing from y’all in the future. Peace.” — Randall Johnson
Nice, great looking bike — thanks for the photo Randall!
“CO finally! Made it to Crested Butte/Taylor Park area with my GL gear. It’s awesome. Rolling with a Zigzag Handlebar Bag, Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag and new Klamath Tail Rack Pack on Honda CRF450L. I got the Tail Rack the night before I left and didn’t have time to get it installed. Even without the Pronghorn Straps it worked perfectly. Thanks again for the great customer service and products.” — rcrinerii
Epic views — looks like fun!
A couple good ones from customer SpeedyR who rides a KTM 950 Super Enduro…
“Just finished a big chunk of the Kentucky Adventure Tour with a couple of friends. Coyote Saddlebag and Diablo Tank Bag worked great as usual. First time using the Diablo on the 950 and was impressed with the volume, ease of getting things in and out, and zippers. Need to get another base so I can use it on my (new to me) 500 and probably a MoJavi Saddlebag. Rode some of the ‘hard’ sections, and the western side of the trails this year. Two thumbs up!” — SpeedyR
Thanks Speedy — nice ride!
I’ll bet there’s fish in that stream — nice photo, CrashBar!
“Sometimes it isn’t the big ticket items that get the job done. I happened to luck out and found that I had an orange Giant Loop Quickloop Security Cable in the back of my shop! I didn’t need anything high security, just something to keep the grabbing hands off, and this cable fit the bill perfectly! The van has to pull double duty as a work van, but it is super convenient as a motovan. Some guys need the huge trailer or RV to camp in, but i subscribe to ‘less is more’. I guess it would be the same principle as Giant Loop’s: Go light, go fast, go far.” — Whodatschrome
Nice setup — looks like the perfect place to camp!
“Thanks again for the great customer service. Sharing a photo of my 790 Adventure with a lot of Giant Loop goodies on board. Great products GL team!” — Jesse Leatherman
Great setup — thanks for the photo, Jesse!
Radical photo sent to us from our buddy Steven, of the Zigzag Handlebar Bag in full effect!
“Hey guys, writing to say hello! Check in, and point to a post I made on InstaGram today. Yep, rain can be fun too. Didn’t worry about pockets much. Kept everything in the Zigzag Handlebar Bag!” — Steven Levine
“In the photo that appears at the bottom, the closest thing that can be passed in a vehicle to the Panama Canal.” — Roberto Garcia
Stay safe Roberto — thanks for the photos! Go light. Go fast. Go far!
“I received my Diablo Pro Tank Bag today. I just wanted to show you how it looks on my BMW G310GS. I’m going to do the same with the Fandango Tank Bag on my BMW R1200GSA. Have a nice 4th weekend, be safe!” — Greg Jevyak
Nice bike — thanks for the photos, Greg!
“I bought your Mojavi Saddlebags for my Honda NC750X, tried them today, very pleased with them, especially since I can flip up the pillion without loosening or moving the bags.” — Richard Smith, Arizona
Cool set-up — thanks for the email, Richard!
Great photos Bryan — thanks for riding with Giant Loop!
“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!
Cycle News is a free subscription digital magazine, legendary for being the go-to tabloid riders pick up for race results and one of the first publications to go fully digital. We’re excited to have news of our newly redesigned Pronghorn Straps up on the site…
We love this photo — thanks Marck!
When the pros need gear that holds up on the trail, they turn to GL! Here are some excellent photos from Bend Motorcycle Adventures tour operator Jon Beaver’s KTM 790 Adventure R in Oregon Backcountry…
Thanks for the great photos Jon!
“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
So rad — thanks Mike!
“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, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks Tolga — great to see you riding with GL!
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!
Our friend Andy sent us an email detailing how he uses Giant Loop gear to make the magic happen…
“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!
Check out this great use for the Giant Loop Gas Bag…
“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
Awesome, Scott — thanks!
Our friend Wes Fleming who writes for BMW Owners News Magazine does a great podcast as well. His review of our Round The World Panniers and Pannier Mounts is featured in the April 2020 issue, Member Tested Product Reviews section. Plus there’s a new product mention in the News section for the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag…
Wes rides a sweet Indian FTR 1200 S with a single-sided rack. Our Pannier Mount fits perfectly and the big Round The World Pannier gives him enough room for all his gear…
“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

“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…
Thanks Dale — we love you guys…
