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

Great Basin Saddlebag and Tillamook Dry Bag reviewed at Motorcycle Gear Hub — 5 out of 5 stars!

“The Great Basin Saddlebag is unrivaled. When all is said and done, it’s the universal fitment and versatility that puts Giant Loop’s flagship rockstar head and shoulders above the competition. You will benefit from putting this biomorphic saddlebag into your motorcycling life. And I speak from experience. Motorcycle Gear Hub’s seal of approval and most recommended!

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!

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!

Coyote and Diablo Bags on a on KTM 950 Super Enduro

By | bike packing, Blog, Dirt bike, Enduro, Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Photos, Riders, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Tech Tips, trail bike, travel

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!

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

MoJavi Saddlebags With Pronghorn Straps on a Suzuki DRZ400

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
