GL Mojavi Saddlebag Reviewed

By | bike packing, Blog, Dirt bike, Dualsport, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews, Saddlebags, Tech Tips

Check out this article from our friends at Dirt Bike Magazine!

“We tested the Giant Loop MoJavi system with a Possibles Pouch. This adds an additional 3.5 liters of volume. Both the MoJavi and Possibles mount up very simply, and the new Pronghorn Strap (uses stamped aluminum buckles, arrows line up for easy fastening, and the metal buckle is sheathed for scratch protection) is an improvement in mounting the luggage up. We stuffed them with a spare waterproof pullover; fit in tubes, tools, rags and spares; and can honestly say that we didn’t feel the luggage when we rode. Over months of testing we found the Giant Loop MoJavi to be super durable. They distribute the load nicely, and because we were carrying less of a body load, our long, tough off-road pulls were made easier. The zippers are super heavy duty and a bit tough to close, but beyond that, we consider this a big thumbs up for the dualsport/long-haul trail rider!”Dirt Bike Magazine

ADV Rider Review: A Tale of Two Tank Bags

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, New Product, Reviews, Side By Side, Tank Bags, Tech Tips

Up in New Brunswick, Canada, Adventure Rider Zac makes a good comparison of Diablo and Buckin’ Roll Tank Bags…

“Tank Bags are some of the most useful pieces of kit you can add to a motorcycle, offering streamlined cargo capacity that’s quickly accessible. Over the past year, I’ve run two Giant Loop Tank Bags. Before I left for Labrador last year, Giant Loop sent me a Diablo Tank Bag, and this spring, they sent me the updated Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag. They’re similar, but they’re designed for slightly different roles.” Zac Kurylyk

MTK Reviews Round the World Panniers

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

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

The World’s Best Saddlebag!

By | Adventure Touring, bike packing, Blog, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews, Saddlebags, Tech Tips, trail bike, travel

Check out this photo taken by GL customer Doigy at the Kenya-Tanzania border on the shore of Lake Natron with Mt. Shompole in the background. The rear wheel of the bike is in Kenya, front wheel is in Tanzania!

GL customer Doigy on the Kenya-Tanzania border“I use your products on a regular basis and cannot fault them. In particular your Coyote Saddlebag is an awesome product. It fits on every motorbike I have ever tried it on. It has never come loose, ever, and 95% of my riding is rough off-road stuff. I’ve fallen off plenty of times and have yet to damage the saddlebag. This bag is clearly designed by bikers, for bikers. I’ve been riding motorbikes for 45 years and had numerous types and makes of luggage, and none have ever been able to take the punishment like what I have given the Coyote. None. And despite the thousands of kilometers of off road punishment, the bag still looks like new. Amazing! Well done to all of you at Giant Loop, makers of the world’s best saddlebag! Warmest Regards from Kenya, East Africa.” — Doigy

Amazing photo — thanks for riding with Giant Loop!

Mojave Saddlebag and Possibles Pouch on a KTM 690 Enduro R

By | bike packing, Dry Bags, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews, Saddlebags, Straps, Tech Tips

Mojave Saddlebags and Possibles Pouch are a perfect fit on a 2018 KTM 690 Enduro RA customer from ADV Rider sent us this email…

“A shout out to Giant Loop for A+++++ support on every aspect of product from pre-sales questions, price, shipping, and coming up with storage ideas. I love the Mojave Saddlebags to hold everything I need for a ride. Small and lightweight enough not to interfere with the the bike’s riding characteristics. I thought the rear gas fill on the KTM 690 Enduro R would be a hassle. But it takes no more than a minute extra to shift the Mojave forward. I currently carry a few fuel bottles strapped down with Pronghorn Straps. The Mojave Bags are nice and snug. Also keeps center of gravity low. I waiting for the GL Rogue Dry Bag for longer trips. Should fit on top of the Mojave.” — GF-kam

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

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

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
