Rider Jaume writes to us about our new Pronghorn Straps

Why I Love Giant Loop“When I’m traveling through mountains or across deserts I can’t take any risks, so I always trust Giant Loop to carry my gear. Light, reliable, resistant and well designed.  They have never let me down, which is why they are my constant travel companions. Best regards!” — Jaume von Arend, Fòrum Gastronòmic

Mojavi Saddlebags, Fuel Bags and Buckin Roll Bags are Essential“Whether I’m out on the snow or picking my way through high mountain single track, Giant Loop products have become an essential part of my adventures! Three things I can’t live with out: the Mojavi Saddlebag for those long multi-day adventures out on the trail, the Fuel Bag for keeping my machines going on those remote days when the only fuel you get is what you can pack with you, and the newly redesigned and totally awesome Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag for keeping the small essentials close at hand.  Giant Loop products let me take my adventures to the next level!” — Carrie Barton

Soggy Adventure on a Honda CRF250L with Giant Loop Bags

Here’s a great video by our friends at Dork in the Road of a Honda CRF250L equipped with our Fender Bag, Fandango Tank Bag, Mojavi Saddlebag, Gas Bag and Pronghorn Strap

It’s raining, and I’m out riding!  My latest dual sport adventure is a soggy, rain-soaked trip into the woods to explore some logging roads in various states of upkeep.  My Honda CRF250L performs admirably on well-maintained roads, while hopping over downed trees, and exploring long-abandoned and completely overgrown tracks.  Only a dual sport motorcycle could possibly handle all the different types of terrain, fallen rocks, narrow spaces, and other obstacles I encountered on this rainy day logging road dual sport exploration adventure.” — Dork in the Road

The Dork in the Road channel is a GL favorite!

An exciting message from Giant Loop Ambassador Aaron Steinmann…

Giant Loop in New Zealand“Three and a half years, 134,000K and 50 countries later my bike finally got cleared by New Zealand customs and is back on home soil. Tomorrow I’ll head north from Auckland towards Cape Reinga and start a top to bottom of New Zealand which is how I started all this sillyness. A quick thanks to MotoZ for supporting me with another set of tires, and to Giant Loop who has always sent me whatever I might need of theirs anywhere in the world.” — Aaron Steinmann (February 1, 2020)

KTM with Tail Rack and Possibles Pouch

Great photo from rider Dave Sorensen…

LaB2V with Giant Loop“Hey guys. I live in CRR and work in Bend. I finally made it by your showroom to watch the tire change demo and check out your gear as I was prepping for the LaB2V ride Thanksgiving weekend. Picked up the Tail Rack and Possibles Pouch during your sale as it looked like the lightest and most durable set up for the event and suited my riding style the best. I was not disappointed! 

I lost my rear light assembly and license plate in a deep road lake I charged through on day one as I attempted to get back on course, pouch and rack stayed solid as I would have expected. 

I saw a lot of people with GL products over the two day ride, obviously it speaks well of your products in the moto community. 

Thankfully I didn’t have to change a flat and had probably one of the best rides of my life thus far! Unusual weather, wet soil and good company made for some epic conditions. Glad I picked up some of your gear to keep the weight off my body and secure. Perhaps we’ll cross paths on the central Oregon trails in the future. Until then keep braaping in whatever environment you find yourselves. Thanks for the great products.”

Cheers, Dave Sorensen

Sweet photo Dave. I remember talking to you about this years LaB2V as I used to live down there. I can’t believe the weather this year, deep snow is like a once every 10 year event. I was actually riding down there mid-december and all that snow made for perfect dirt, just like in Central Oregon. I’m sure we will cross paths out on the trails soon enough, right now I’m trying to ride every weekend. Thanks for the email!

“The final Challenge Point on the tour – Sundance Lookout.”
