MoJavi Saddlebags With Pronghorn Straps on a Suzuki DRZ400

By | bike packing, FAQ, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews, Saddlebags, Suzuki, Tech Tips, trail bike, Video

Check out this excellent video from Dork In The Road showing how to install MoJavi Saddlebags on a Suzuki DRZ400 with a Tail Rack, Pronghorn Straps and GL Mounts

The Giant Loop Mojavi Saddlebags have been my go-to motorcycle luggage solution for carrying gear. They’re versatile, durable, and easy to install. In this video I’m using the Giant Loop mounts which are an inexpensive and versatile way to add mounting points to your dual sport or adventure bike. My hope is to quickly transition between the different types of riding I like to do: trails, forest exploring and road riding. I dig all of Giant Loop’s products, and these GL mounts are no exception. They’re super easy to install and make setups quick and easy.” — Dork in the Road

We love “Dork in the Road”!

Ride lighter, faster and farther with GL Zigzag Handlebar Bag!

Zigzag Handlebar Bag Reviewed at Sur-Ron“The craftsman who made my seat, James Renazco of Renazco Racing turned me on to a fantastic storage solution for my bike. It’s called the Zigzag Handlebar Bag made by a company called Giant Loop. I cannot think of a better ‘glove box’ bag for my bike. It’s simple, convenient, well made and a great addition to my bike. The logo and silver accents on the front of the bag are reflective as well!”Mark Kitaoka, Sur-Ron

Great looking bike – thanks Mark!

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!

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

GL Gas Bag is King of the Hill

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Fuel, Giant Loop Gear, News, Reviews, Tech Tips, travel, Video

How to carry extra fuel? Thanks to Adventure Rider for this great review of the Giant Loop Gas Bag

https://advrider.com

“The absolute king of the hill for carrying extra fuel and also having a small pack size when you don’t need it is, the Giant Loop Gas Bag, available in 1, 2, 3 and 5-gallon sizes. As the Giant Loop Gas Bag is soft set up, besides not being prone to cracking like the solid version from vibration it is also extremely durable and can take an amazing amount of impact if you do fall on it in a crash.”@RTWPAUL, Adventure Rider

The Advantages of Soft Luggage

By | Adventure Touring, Blog, BMW, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Reviews, Saddlebags, travel, Video

Eric from Ride Adventures presents a balanced perspective on the relative advantages of soft luggage, using the Great Basin Saddlebag as his example on his Honda Africa Twin

“Hey ADV Riders, today we’re doing a review on soft vs hard luggage systems on a few of our adventure motorcycles. We break it down to 9 categories; protection, weight, waterproofness, durability, ease of access, ease of installation, versatility, safety, and compatibility. Two solid competitors but only one winner. Watch to find out which wins our vote!”Eric Lange, Ride Adventures

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!

Riding the Trans-Labrador Highway with Giant Loop

“Match your luggage to your bike. When I rode the Trans Lab, I was on a small-capacity Yamaha WR250R and didn’t want the added weight of heavy panniers. For that reason I used Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddle Bag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Diablo Tank Bag and Possibles Pouch to haul all my clothes, camping gear, cooking kit, tools and other assorted gear.” — Zac Kurylyk

New 2020 Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag

By | Blog, Giant Loop Gear, New Product, Reviews, Tank Bags, Video

Dean Edamura at AdventureRider.com wrote a great piece recently on our newly redesigned Buckn’ Roll Tank Bag

“Giant Loop specializes in packing systems for dirt, dual sport, enduro and ADV bikes, and their completely redesigned for 2020 Buckin’ Roll tank bag is a great example of what sets their products apart. The small design of the Buckin’ Roll is like a fanny pack for your motorcycle, but with none of the suburban-Dad-in-flip-flops-and-socks stigma. At 1.5 liters, it has enough space for emergency spares, wallet, car keys, and features a compartment on top with a clear cover to allow the rider to read their smartphone maps on the go. A pass-through for a power cable allows you to charge your devices while they are still safely tucked away…”  —by Dean Edamura, advrider.com
