Clean Drink Adventures: Safe Drinking Water Solutions for Nepal, Delivered on Royal Enfield Himalayan

By | Adventure Touring, Blog, Camping, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Overland, Photos, Reviews, Riders, Royal Enfield, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, travel, Uncategorized

See links below to volunteer for Clean Drink Adventures trips in Spring 2019!

Clean Drink Adventures

“Packing up our tents, the women of the community thanked us for coming, sharing in a night of good fun, and for the gift of the MSR SE200 Community Chlorine Maker. And that’s how it always should be. It’s not uncommon for some organizations to enter a village and foist their aid on unsuspecting locals. We offered the water system to the villagers and they eagerly accepted. They gained a useful tool and we received a wonderful night of hospitality we won’t soon forget.”

Hello Giant Loop,

We’re back from our trip to Nepal and happy to report it was a huge success. Our Clean Drink Adventures team was able to provide safe drinking water solutions to as many as 700 people during our travels. In the coming weeks our volunteers on the ground will bump that number closer to 2,000 in the coming weeks.

As we traveled into the remote corners of the country, our medic, Jason McKinney, packed all of his medical equipment in Giant Loop bags. Not only did he keep us safe, but he was available to help anyone in need during out travels.

Below are some fun images and snippits you can use for social media. In the meantime I’m working on gathering more assets you can use for promotions.

The bags are currently in our office in Nepal and ready to do it all again. We have more trips planned for March, April, and May. The GL bags will be put to use every time.

Thank you so much for sending them along and we’re stoked to have GL as a CLEAN DRINK partner.

Safe travels,
Christophe

Doing good as you go doesn't always go as planned. While delivering safe drinking water solutions to remote communities in Nepal, our team medic Jason McKinny hit a slight rough patch. CLEAN DRINK ADVENTURES is a proud partner with Giant Loop. We use our bags to carry medical supplies and essentials to ensure our team is safe and our Nepali friends well cared for. You can join Giant Loop and CLEAN DRINK on the adventure of a lifetime. Spots are open for trips in the spring of 2019.

Ducati Scrambler Kitted for Adventure with Giant Loop Motorcycle Soft Luggage

By | Adventure Touring, Camping, Ducati, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Photos, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Tech Tips, Video

We’ve outfitted this Ducati Scrambler for a weekend, week or even extended long haul adventure motorcycle travel with our Giant Loop adventure proof packing system of soft luggage for motorcycles. Designed to fit virtually any motorcycle equipped with passenger pegs, the Great Basin Saddlebag mounts on the passenger seat, anchored to the passenger peg mounts and the rear “fender” assembly – no luggage racks, mounts or braces required. The Fandango Pro Tank Bag keeps smaller items like phone, camera, wallet and other essentials handy, while the Zigzag Handlebar Bag stores other small items within easy reach. We’ve added the Bushwackers Hand Guards, which strap over rigid deflectors to protect hands and controls from rain, cold, mud and brush. All it needs is a skid plate . . .

Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route with Motolara

Dual sport enthusiasts, Alberto Lara and Naomi Tweddle created this fantastic video of their recent trip on the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route on their Yamaha WR 250Rs.  The couple has ridden with Giant Loop gear in destinations around North and South America, choosing the Great Basin Saddlebags to carry most of their gear. The Great Basin handily carries all one could need for multi-day journeys. You’ll also see the Giant Loop Fandango Tank Bag , Tillamook Dry bag and various other GL accessories used on this trip.

These two are exactly who we thought of when we started creating this gear. They live for the ride.

BMW 1200GS and the Kiger Tank Bag

Sometimes when you have a big bike, you want a big tank bag. The Kiger Tank Bag is the largest in Giant Loop collection. At 9 litres capacity this bag is 100% waterproof and has a sturdy clamshell closure design that makes it easy to get in and out of with gloves on.
Shown here in photos courtesy of the BMW Club Motorcycle Owners of America.

As you can see the bag fits nicely over the large front fairing of the BMW R1200GS, attaching to the frame under the seat. The Kiger measures 8.25 X 12″, giving ample room yet not obstructing the riders view of the odometer or GPS.

The Kiger Tank Bag can also be paired with Pannier Pockets for added front-of-bike capacity.

BMW GS650 – Fandango Tank Bag Pro and Pannier Pockets

Customer, Dave, stopped in today to show us how his Giant Loop Pannier Pockets and Fandango Tank Bag Pro fit on his BMW GS650. You can see how the pockets fit nicely in a horizontal position on the bike’s large side fairing. Pannier Pockets can be integrated into all of our tank bag systems and come included with the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag set up. The tank bag harness anchor straps fit underneath the seat and attach to the frame. The Fandango, at 8L capacity is a nice size for the medium sized touring bike.

Kawasaki Versys-X 300 with Coyote Saddlebag and Rogue Dry Bag

By | Blog, Camping, Dry Bags, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Kawasaki, Saddlebags, Tank Bags

Customer Doug just rode his new a Kawasaki Versys 300 from Virginia to Oregon, and he’s so pleased with his Giant Loop packing system that he stopped by the GL ADV Shop in Bend this morning to show us his setup!

His entire trip has been on pavement, so he created a simple quick-release rear anchor strap to mount the Coyote Saddlebag in front of his top box. Secured to the Coyote Saddlebag with the compression straps, he’s added a Rogue Dry Bag. And the slim Diablo Pro Tank Bag is perfectly proportioned for this small but capable machine.

Thanks Doug for choosing Giant Loop for your coast-to-coast adventure!

Coyote Saddlebag and Fandango Tank Bag Pro Fitment On Honda Africa Twin

By | Blog, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Tech Tips

Nate, a local Bend customer, came by the Adventure Shop today with his brand new Honda Africa Twin CRF1000L to show us his fitting for his Coyote Saddlebag.

Honda Africa Twin and Coyote Saddlebag

Honda Africa Twin and Coyote Saddlebag

 

At 39L, the saddlebag fits perfectly behind the rider with room to spare for a dry bag or duffle to supplement bigger trips. Even with the passenger footpegs removed, the lower anchor points on the bag fasten nicely to the frame to keep the bag out of the way with zero movement. The shape of the Coyote lends itself well to this bike, as it angles forward instead of down thus  avoiding the wide pipe.

Conveniently the Coyote fender hooks fit perfectly and positively in the Twin’s existing hard luggage mounting points.

The Giant Loop Fandango is also a great fit on this bike, sculpting well over the tank. East to access the fuel fill and see the dash instruments.

Nate is about to head out on the Washington BDR. We thing this is a great set up for his trip!

Waterproof: Sorting Fact from Fiction + Giant Loop’s Proven Design Approach

By | Blog, Dry Bags, FAQ, Giant Loop Gear, Panniers, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Uncategorized

Waterproof: Sorting Fact from Fiction + Giant Loop’s Proven Design Approach

Giant Loop recently received this question on a popular adventure motorcycle forum:

“I would like a clarification regarding the Coyote Saddlebag. The old style with the zipper closure was not 100% waterproof because of the zipper (at least this is my understand from what i have read). The new roll top style, is it 100% waterproof? In case I skip the dry pods in the one with the roll top closure will the containing things remain dry? I understand the dry pods are used for sorting and storing purposes, but i am really seeking a waterproof solution.”

Let me clarify – and please feel free to share this info! First, to answer your specific questions:

This icon is Giant Loop's guarantee that a product is 100% waterproof under normal riding conditions when instructions are followed and included components are used as our designed waterproofing system.

This icon is Giant Loop’s assurance that a product is 100% waterproof under normal riding conditions when instructions are followed and included components are used as our designed waterproofing system.

The Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag are sewn products, constructed with military-spec thread and waterproof material reinforced with ballistic nylon. Their outer shells are HIGHLY water resistant, and to make them truly 100% waterproof they include a set of 3 RF-welded Saddlebag Dry Pods with air purge valves. The Coyote Saddlebag Roll Top and Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top outer shells are even more highly water resistant, because they are constructed with fewer seams. The Dry Pods are lightweight and don’t take up much space, so we would recommend storing them inside the Saddlebag even if you’re riding in dry conditions and don’t need them – then you’ll have them for deep water crossings, storms, etc. They can also be filled with ice and used as beverage coolers at camp, they’re handy shopping bags to carry food to camp, etc.

Now, there are multiple design approaches to achieve waterproofing in textile products, so  please allow me to geek out a bit here. I want to answer not only your question but also share some information motorcycle riders should understand about Giant Loop — and other gear and apparel.

Before I started Giant Loop in 2008, I used to be a gear reviewer for a national adventure travel magazine, so I despise inaccurate and exaggerated marketing claims. And I do crazy things like taking all of Giant Loop’s products to the city swimming pool to test them myself in a controlled environment. GL’s product designer is a through-hiker and international motorcycle traveler who has lived for months at a time in the outdoors, so he knows his game.

Sewn products made by any manufacturer are not 100% waterproof because needle holes can allow moisture to penetrate the seams. Riders who get water inside their luggage usually neglect to take bags off their bikes when they leave them parked in a heavy rain, allowing water to pool and slowly seep through a seam. In normal riding conditions water doesn’t usually collect and pool.

And there’s really no such thing as a 100% waterproof zipper except for the kind used on scuba dry suits – they are too costly and fragile to be a practical solution for motorcycling. On our zippered bags, the zipper itself is virtually never the point of entry for water unless the zippers aren’t closed or the storm flap isn’t rolled down over the zipper.

Our design philosophy is to build super rugged, tough, highly water resistant outer shells and protect the more fragile RF-welded (no needle holes, fabrics bonded together using heat) and seam-sealed (needle holes covered with waterproof tape) waterproofing components inside this shell.

So while a crash or cactus spine may poke a hole in the outer shell, all of the gear inside the Dry Pods included with our packing systems remains organized and well protected inside.

Because the outer shells on Giant Loop’s adventure proof gear are so highly water resistant, keeping contents dry inside can even be as simple as using a zip-lock or trash bag. Instead, Giant Loop’s Kiger Tank Bag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Diablo Pro Tank Bag, Coyote Saddlebag, Great Basin Saddlebag, Siskiyou Panniers and Round The World Panniers all include RF-welded or seam sealed waterproof inner liner Dry Pods.

And we offer many 100% waterproof RF-welded products as part of Giant Loop’s modular, customizable, adventure proof packing system: Columbia Dry Bag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Rogue Dry Bag, Torngat Tunnel Bag, Revelstoke Tunnel Bag, Possibles Pouch, GL Fender Bag — and the new MotoTrekk Panniers.

There’s also a lack of objective standards and transparency around claims of “waterproof.” Waterproof spans a range in practical reality, which is why there’s actually an international set of standards and ratings for waterproofing: the IP Code.

Submersible standards (IPX7 and higher) are critical for boating, diving, snorkeling, etc. Our RF-welded (no needle holes from sewing) are submersible waterproof – I use them for rafting and paddleboarding. These Giant Loop products do not require inner liner Dry Pods to provide 100% waterproof protection.

But since motorcycles themselves are not submersible vehicles, sewn products achieve a level of waterproofing equivalent to spraying the products with high pressure water jets from all directions (IPX6). Water may penetrate the outer shell in extreme conditions, but the inner liner Dry Pods keep contents dry inside.

When Giant Loop labels a product as waterproof, that means a product is 100% waterproof (IPX6 or better) under normal riding conditions when instructions are followed and included components are used as our designed waterproofing system.

When shopping for waterproof motorcycle soft luggage, waterproof apparel, etc., pay attention to construction details, so you can understand what a manufacturer is labeling waterproof, what degree of waterproofing is adequate for your application and how the waterproofing is achieved.

Thanks for riding with Giant Loop – and please keep the questions, comments, reviews, pics and videos coming our way!

How to Pack a Small Motorcycle for BIG Adventure: Globe Crosser Steph Jeavons + Rhonda the Honda CRF250

“Oh my goodness! All packed up. Its been so long I nearly forgot how to do it! Time to move on again!” – Steph Jeavons, One Steph Beyond

Nearly a year ago, Giant Loop hosted world traveler Steph Jeavons here in Bend, Oregon for an evening slideshow of her travels on Rhonda the Honda CRF250L. While she was here we had the opportunity to upgrade her luggage and gear for another round of travel. Packing all of the essentials for months of living off a motorcycle presents challenges – especially with a relatively small bike like the Honda CRF250L. Small bikes are a specialty here at Giant Loop, and by using our modular, customizable adventure proof packing system, we were able to help Steph organize her gear into multiple small compartments, providing quick, easy access – and helping balance the load on both the front and rear of the bike.

Here’s how Steph Jeavons packs her Honda CRF250L the “go light, go fast, go far” Giant Loop way:

TAIL OF HONDA CRF250L
* Great Basin Saddlebag: Fits virtually any motorcycle built to carry a passenger, anchoring to the passenger pegs and riding on the passenger seat.
* 2 x Possibles Pouches: Tool, tubes and other gear kept handy with external pockets designed to integrate with Giant Loop’s Great Basin, Coyote and MoJavi Saddlebags – and used independently as universal tool and gear pouches.
* Columbia Dry Bag: A large bag for a small bike, but Giant Loop’s double-ended Dry Bags come in three sizes for all bike types and packing options.

FRONT OF HONDA CRF250L
* Fandango Pro Tank Bag: Roomy enough for cameras and essential gear, trim enough for off-road riding while standing on the foot pegs.
* Pannier Pockets: Integrate with Giant Loop’s Tank Bag Harness – and can be used independently – to extend gear carry capacity to the front of the bike.
* Fender Bag: A spare tube or other relatively small, lightweight essential strap onto the plastic fenders of most dirt bikes – and Giant Loop’s Fender Bag stays on, even in the roughest riding.

Customer Review: “Can’t Sing Enough Praises” About Coyote Saddlebag + Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag on Suzuki DRZ400

Customer post on Adventure Rider:

“I am about to make a bold statement.”

“I finally got a chance to camp with my new Coyote Roll Top Saddlebag and Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag. It’s easily the best setup I have ever owned for dual sport and I’ve damn near owned them all at this point. Can’t wait to see where you guys go with your items in the future. I can say, please keep making roll tops, and please keep the current dry bags. Really awesome features in my opinion. I noticed all the straps are about as twice as thick as any other brand I have used as well. I beat my bike to death and none of this stuff ever moved. The saddlebags already have a few drops on them and I ran into a tree with the right side too. Can’t even see a mark on it anywhere. I also noticed I can put the saddlebags super far back. I never noticed it touching my butt or back the entire time, even riding whoops standing up, and this is with a hydration pack on. This is probably the first time I’ve camped with a setup and didn’t come home not liking something about it. Seriously, can’t sing enough praises.

“In these photos, I am packed with everything needed to tent camp basically indefinitely off the bike. I love that everything is in one place and not in 3 or 4 different bags strapped awkwardly on the back of the bike. Very clean.”

From her website and blog:
Steph Jeavons set off from the Ace Cafe in 2014 to circumnavigate the world. She is still going, and apparently, happily lost!

Steph has been around motorbikes most of her life with both parents and one of her two sisters riding as well. Her grandmother even rode bikes during the war! Steph herself has been riding since the age of 21. I think you can safely say it’s in the blood. In 2008 she set up her own off-road motorcycle school in the UK as well as desert tours in Morocco alongside the British Dakar rider Mick Extance.

Steph has ridden across the Atlas mountains and in the Sahara five times. She has crossed the US coast-to-coast four times, got muddy in Wales with names like John McGuinness and, just once, nearly punched Carl Fogarty in the face! Steph also worked with Nick Sanders setting up his expedition centre in Machynlleth.

She left all this excitement behind to pursue her dream of riding her motorcycle to all seven continents – solo!

‘I’m certainly no expert and I don’t confess to being a demon on two wheels. This adventure isn’t about speed. It’s not really even about the bike. It’s about living, learning and enjoying! Doing this trip solo on a bike just opens up all the senses and allows me to be part of my environment.’

Steph has taken her Honda CRF250L further than any 250cc has been before, so far having ridden to 40 countries and covered over 55,000 miles! Steph has survived extreme heat, freezing conditions, landslides and wind that blew her off her bike in Patagonia. She has camped, couch-surfed and stayed with fellow bikers along the way whilst avoiding the main roads and sticking to the dirt where possible. She touched down and rode her motorbike on Antarctica in February 2015 after successfully crossing the notoriously rough Drake Passage in a small sailing yacht.

Steph has given inspirational talks to motorcycle shows, groups and communities along the way. She also currently writes for Ride Magazine and ADV Moto as she continues her journey around the world on her little dirt bike named Rhonda.

When Rox Speed FX owner Chris took his new Honda Africa Twin for an adventure motorcycle tour this past summer, he chose Giant Loop’s Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Great Basin Saddlebag for his trip – and he sent us some great pics! You’ll notice that the large passenger handles on the Honda Africa Twin create a space between the pillion seat and the bottom or the Great Basin Saddlebag – a perfect spot to stow away an extra layer or additional riding gear.

Dream Roll 2016 Success Album

Dream Roll 2016 Success Album

dream roll 1

To say the Dream Roll 2016 was a success would be a gross understatement. Between motorcycle camping with no boys allowed, bike rides to waterfalls, tattoos in tents, free beer, and the biggest group of badass women you’ve ever seen, this weekend is one we’ll never be able to forget, even if we tried. It took place on the Flying L Ranch near Mount Adams, Washington from August 12-14 with about 200 women in attendance. Here’s a small peek into the best trip of the year:

The best crew consisted of a few women from The Litas-Bend, as well as some new friends from California. In addition to having the best crew, the best gear was also necessary. I took Giant Loop’s Honda CB500X, Diablo Tank Bag Pro, Great Basin Saddlebag, Pronghorn Straps, Possibles Pouch, Coyote Dry Pods, Tillamook Dry Bag, and Sleeping Sheath.

I packed all my clothes and food into the Dry Pods in the Great Basin, my sleeping bag, pad and sheath into the Tillamook, spare tools in the Possibles, and phone, camera, GoPro, water, and snacks into the Diablo, all packed nice and tidy on the Honda. Everything was secure the whole ride, not a single issue; the weight was nice and low, too, so I wasn’t being thrown around in the wind or thrown off balance in the beautiful Washington twisties.

The tank bag, I realized, is deceivingly large. As the smallest of the tank bags Giant Loop offers, I was skeptical, but only until I tried it. It fit my DSLR camera, phone, wallet, snacks, headphones, water bottle, AND GoPro all at once with no problem. We stopped at a gas station where I got more snacks and another water bottle, before I realized I didn’t think I had any room left. But I was wrong, I ended up fitting everything in without even straining the zipper!

Another unexpected savior was the sleeping sheath. I don’t have a tent, so I posted up in a hammock and sleeping bag under the trees, with the sleeping sheath still in the Great Basin, since I thought I wouldn’t need it. Then a fat bug fell onto me from the tree I was under, and I ran for the sheath! I zipped it up and over me and my sleeping bag, folded the top back so the mesh was over my face instead, and I swung under the stars and watched the meteor shower without fear of bugs falling on my face. It’s super lightweight, takes up almost no space, and keeps the critters out.

The Gravel Gang makes it to Dog Creek Falls

The Gravel Gang makes it to Dog Creek Falls

I met some of the absolute raddest chicks this weekend! Shout out to Ria the Welder who welds AMAZING custom sissy bars. Check out her Instagram to see her work. Then there’s Killer Kelly, who makes t-shirts that say “Support Badass Babes” and sells them on her Instagram. She’s just starting out, so message her and order a tee for only $16, and watch as she grows into an operation that sponsors badass babes in their badass adventures. Another shout out to Hinterland Empire and Wasted Times for some super cool women selling some super cool gear.

Thanks to all the sponsors, including Women’s Moto Exhibit, and everyone involved for organizing the experience of a lifetime. This is only the second year the Dream Roll has been put on, so there are many more to come! This weekend getaway is one for the books and one that we’re all going to come back to again and again. I’ve been riding for 5 years now, but never got the true biker experience by being part of a community of motorcyclists outside my dad and brother. But after this weekend I’ve found my motorcycle community and finally consider myself to be a real biker. Thanks to all the amazing ladies who rode out and made the weekend an unforgettable event. Happy riding!

Giant Loop’s Motorcycle Soft Luggage & Gear On Honda Africa Twin

Finally getting the opportunity to do some fitting on the new Honda Africa Twin. This customer rode over the Cascades from Oregon’s Willamette Valley to our shop in Bend to test fit and outfit his sweet silver Honda Africa Twin.

Giant Loop’s Kiger Tank Bag, Fandango Pro Tank Bag and Diablo Pro Tank Bag all fit the Honda Africa Twin great (GL’s motorcycle tank bags use the same harness and mount up identically). This rider went with the Fandango Pro Tank Bag, our trim mid-size dual sport and adventure touring motorcycle Tank Bag, which includes a waterproof RF welded inner liner Dry Pod, integrated electronics pass-through, mesh exterior pocket and concealed document pocket. And like all of our Tank Bags, the Honda Africa Twin’s fuel fill is easily accessed by unzipping one side of the Tank Bag from the harness.

We also test fit Giant Loop’s Siskiyou PanniersGreat Basin Saddlebag and Coyote Saddlebag – all workable options. This rider has Touratech luggage racks on order, so he chose our new rack-mounted Round The World Panniers with 18mm Happy Trails Pannier Mounting Kit hardware.

GL’s Tillamook Dry Bag – the mid-size option in our line of three double-ended RF welded Dry Bags, the Rogue Dry Bag (17 liters), Tillamook Dry Bag (38 liters) and Columbia Dry Bag (70 liters) – and our Zigzag Handlebar Bag completes his adventure proof packing system. Add some Pronghorn Straps to keep everything tight and tidy.

Maintaining & Cleaning Zippers on the Giant Loop Motorcycle Soft Luggage

Maintaining & Cleaning Zippers on the Giant Loop Motorcycle Soft Luggage

Email from customer: “Hi, love my Coyote Saddlebag mounted on the KTM 500 EXC, but the downside to every trip I struggle with the zipper. Man I get pissed. Am I missing something? Any way to make it operate easier? Thanks, Cal”

ZIP CARE™ ZIPPER CLEANER & LUBRICANT
Hello Cal,

Dang, sorry to hear your zipper is giving you fits. Keeping zippers clean and lubricate – and treating them with respect by not yanking or forcing zippers will keep them sliding smoothly and prevent you from bursting a blood vessel.

Some things to try:

  • Clean the zippers. Dirt and dust particles are usually the biggest challenges for zippers – just like the moving parts of your motorcycle engine. For the trail, pack some of our Zip Care™ Zipper Cleaner & Lubricant. When you’re trip is over, wash all of your Giant Loop motorcycle soft luggage using warm, soapy water, give it good rinse and let it air dry.
  • Lubricate the zippers. Use our Zip Care™ Zipper Cleaner & Lubricant. And in a pinch, a little soap, wax or even lip balm will help. Burt’s Bee’s Beeswax Lip Balm works great and is available at any drug store or grocery store.
  •  Manage the zippers. When you get into your Giant Loop Saddlebag, first roll the storm flap back out of the way, then roll the flap back over the zipper to keep it protected after you close the bag. Un-zip Possibles Pouches, Pannier Pockets and Tank Bag lids completely when accessing gear to avoid damaging zipper teeth.
  •  Respect the zippers. Avoid over packing. When your Giant Loop adventure proof packing systems are not stuffed drum tight, the zippers are much easier to manage. Consider using our Possibles Pouches, to add external pockets, or a Dry Bag to expand your Giant Loop Saddlebag or Panniers. Add the Pannier Pockets to Giant Loop’s Tank Bags. Compartmentalizing gear makes it easier to access the things you need during the day of riding and helps prevent the zippers from buckling from being tightly stuffed. Hold zipper halves together as you zip to prevent stressing the teeth.

If you’ve tried everything, then there is an outside chance that you got a defective zipper. If you think this is the case, please print, fill out and include a copy of the attached warranty and repair return form with your CLEAN bag. Use RMA # [today’s date]. If there is a defect, we will repair or replace your Giant Loop product at no charge to you.

Thank you for choosing Giant Loop for your adventures,
Team GL
