Giant Loop Sponsored Rider Danell Lynn Sets New Guinness World Record: Longest Journey By Motorcycle In A Single Country

Giant Loop is proud to announce that sponsored rider Danell Lynn has set a new Guinness World Record for “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country.” Traveling for a year on her Triumph Bonneville equipped with Giant Loop gear, Lynn covered 48,600 miles while riding throughout the contiguous 48 states of the Unite States of America. Lynn is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.

Although her travels actually covered all 50 states, as well as three Canadian provinces, totaling more than 53,000 miles from September 2014 through September 2015, Guinness only counted the miles logged within the continental 48 states. Duplicate miles also did not apply to the record; each of the 48,600 miles covered different routes.

“Giant Loop was my first and only bag choice as the ride began its planning,” says Lynn. “I am so pleased with it all: The ease of use, and complete dryness of my gear through downpours, will keep me coming back to Giant Loop.”

“We are very proud to have played a role in Danell’s incredible journey,” says Harold Olaf Cecil, owner and founder of Giant Loop. “Daily use really puts our products to a degree of testing most riders would take many years to equal. Danell is also personally dedicated to positive change in the world, and her spirit matches our mission as a brand and company. Well done, Danell!”

For her world record setting ride, Lynn used Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Rogue Dry Bag, Possibles Pouch and Pronghorn Straps on her 2006 Triumph Bonneville. She also secured her gear with Rok Straps and carried additional fuel in 2-liter Touratech Fuel Canisters, which fit into the front pockets of the Siskiyou Panniers.

Giant Loop Rider: Tammy Rides Her First Event, 2014 Alley Sweeper, On Her Vintage Triumph, With Diablo Tank Bag And Mojavi Saddlebag

By | Honda, Triumph

The trip to Portland for last weekend’s ?Alley Sweeper, was worth a load of adventures. Especially for Tammy, since this was her first (dis)organized ride.

Arriving at the start of the ride was pretty telling, the whole street was filling with rough tire motos, of one sort or another. There were costumed riders, riders on vintage two-stroke enduros, monkey bikes and mopeds, in addition to the pile of modern dual sports and adventure bikes. It was easy for us to get staged with the van, since there weren’t many cars parked in the area. As we finished getting ready, the street filled in with riders and motos, anticipating the announcements and rider’s meeting.






Tammy has only been riding for a couple years and her experience is mainly riding Vintage bikes on dirt. She had been out in the woods riding a couple weekends ago, so she was ready for more. McQueen, her 1971 Triumph T100C Trophy ?was kitted with Diablo Tank Bag and Mojavi Saddlebag. What she had limited experience with, was riding in city traffic and she had never ridden pavement in the rain. She was pretty nervous about the wet pavement, until I reminded her to treat it like dirt and expect a little slipping and sliding. She got the hang of wet roads quick, but she still had a sharp concern about getting into and out of car traffic, as we filtered through the streets to reach the next set of alley ways.

The alleys were as diverse as the bikers, paved, gravel, mud, grass and puddles. The alleys were surrounded by yards in every state of trim and disrepair.


Here was one little piece of “city rock” that caused us to pause and double check McQueen’s engine case for oil leaks! Luckily, Tammy rode right through without getting dumped off, when she hit that one.


Occasionally we saw residents, out watching the parade, or trying to instigate some contention with riders. Tam and I came across one such alley, with a few discontents waving a phone camera at us and trying to engage us. We took the high road and turned onto the street, rather that have our enjoyment interrupted with meaningless debate about access to public right-of-ways and the city permitting required to stop us from riding on “their” public road. As we got deeper into the route, there were other creative residents, parking trucks across the alley ways, preventing us from continuing through several of the designated alleys. As we had already found the need to be “flexible” with the routing, we were able to pick up the next alley, without loosing too much track.


Tammy was tired after we had completed the sections of North route, so we decided to wrap up our participation and headed back to base. She was thrilled with excitement from completing the stages we did and she was totally beat from all the concentration and effort needed to handle her Triumph in the alleys and city traffic. The Honda XR650R, kitted with Mojavi Saddlebag, Pannier Pockets and Possibles Pouches, performed predictably for me. It was easy to spy upcoming alleys, while standing in its tall cockpit.?Thankfully the Honda was not as coldblooded as usual and fired up second kick, every time. Tammy’s Triumph was easy to start all day, too, but got a bit hot after several long sections of slow muddy alley way, so it got a cool off break half way through the ride.

The guys at Sang Froid Riding Club had done a good job with their map and route plans, but they did a GREAT job on their ride Tshirt. Tammy was very happy to see such a cool Tshirt, as her first ride commemoration and bought me one too. I’ll get a proper pic of the Tshirt(thought I had one) and add it to this post.

I carry a full kit when I ride down in Death Valley for the Death Valley Noobs Rally, every thing from sutures to ETT tubes if intubation is needed, a full bandage kit, c-collar, tourniquet, symptomatic drugs if needed, and I leave an automated external defibrillator in camp. Last year I was down at the Silverton, CO event also while doing the CO Backcountry Discovery Route. At the Death Valley Rally last year we had a few mishaps fractured leg, fractured foot and a dislocated should with fractured clavicle.”

Rob rides a tricked out Triumph Tiger 800, with Giant Loop’s?Fandango Tank Bag? – and soon a MEDIC MoJavi Saddlebag. He surely puts his bike through the paces, having ridden three Backcountry Discovery Routes, as well as volunteering at the Death Valley Noobs Rally. ?Thanks, Rob, for supporting the rider community by volunteering your skills!
