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.

Giant Loop Self Distributes in Canada

Adventure Proof Packing Systems and Gear Innovator Seeks Canadian Dealers

(BEND, OREGON USA) After nearly a decade of steady, incremental sales growth in Canada, Giant Loop has announced that the company will self-distribute in the Canadian powersports market. Giant Loop will service Canadian motorcycle, snowmobile, snow bike, side-by-side and ATV dealers directly from its warehouse and headquarters in Bend, Oregon USA. Currently, more than 20 Canadian dealers in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario import Giant Loop products for their retail customers. In 2019, Giant Loop plans to target the Canadian powersports market by exhibiting at select motorcycle shows and events as part of a comprehensive marketing strategy intended to aggressively expand business in this key North American market.

“Since launching in 2008, we have viewed Giant Loop as an international business, and Canada has consistently been among our top export markets,” says Harold Olaf Cecil, Giant Loop’s owner and founder. “By working directly with Canadian dealers we can reduce the landed cost of our products there, helping to compensate for the currency exchange rate difference between our dollars, as well as for the taxes and international shipping expenses.”

Giant Loop invites Canadian dealers to contact them for a dealer application, special Canadian dealer pricing and other details to get set up as an authorized Giant Loop dealer. Contact Giant Loop sales at +1 458-206-9113.

Giant Loop’s adventure proof motorcycle, snowmobile, snow bike, ATV, UTV, side-by-side, 4×4 and outdoor packing and gear systems are available from select powersports dealers in the USA and Canada, and via Tucker Rocky Distributing and Western Power Sports in the USA, as well as from international distributors around the world.

Giant Loop wins Powersports Business Nifty 50 award for GL Pannier Mounts for motorcycle soft luggage and gear

(BEND, OREGON USA)  For the fifth consecutive year, expedition gear innovator Giant Loop has won a Powersports Business “Nifty 50” award for best new products. For 2018, it’s Giant Loop’s GL Pannier Mount, an ultralight, rugged, stable, quick-connect, quick-release, lockable solution for motorcycle soft luggage and equipment. Constructed of aluminum with a black powder coated finish, stainless steel hardware and a key lock mechanism, GL Pannier Mounts weigh just 3.6 lbs. per pair, including spare keys. In keeping with the company’s minimalist “go light, go fast, go far” design philosophy, GL Pannier Mounts feature just two moving parts, an anchor clasp and a lock, both of which are accessible without having to reach inside motorcycle luggage.

Although specifically designed for Giant Loop’s rack-mounted motorcycle soft luggage, Round The World Panniers and MotoTrekk Panniers, GL Pannier Mounts offer remarkably versatile solutions for attaching gear to motorcycle side luggage racks. Pre-drilled holes provide easy installation of RotoPax® gas cans, water cans and accessories, and strap slots enable virtually any other gear, tools or bags, to be secured to the GL Pannier Mounts with Giant Loop’s heavy-duty stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps.

GL Pannier Mounts are currently compatible with most side luggage rack designs featuring flat, vertical hoops constructed of 16-18mm round tubing. Examples include Givi Outback, Touratech pannier racks and the BMW R1200GS Adventure’s OE luggage racks (Giant Loop adapter required for exhaust side of BMW GSA). Other adapters and mounting options will be available soon. Sold as a set of two with four keys included, GL Pannier Mounts cost $299 USA MSRP (part number PNTM-18R) and $329 USA MSRP with the BMW R1200R GS Adventure adapters (part number PNMT-GSA).

Past “Nifty 50” award winners from Giant Loop include: Fandango Pro Tank Bag (2014), Tracker Packer emergency beacon holster (2015), Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder (2016) and Great Basin Saddlebag Roll Top (2017).

Giant Loop 3- and 5-Gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders

5 gallon Fuel Safe Gas Bags with a Polaris side by side

5 gallon Fuel Safe Gas Bags with a Polaris side by side

Giant Loop has added new 3- and 5-gallon Gas Bag™ Fuel Safe Bladders to its award-wining fuel solutions. Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders conveniently transport hydrocarbon fuel for power sports racing in a collapsible welded film and ballistic nylon reinforced container that rolls up or packs flat when empty. Weighing a fraction of rigid tanks and canisters and less costly than racing fuel cells, Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders are also available in 1- and 2-gallon models.

The new larger 3-gallon (11.4 liters) and 5-gallon (18.9 liters) Gas Bags are designed specifically for UTVs, ATVs, snowmobiles, snow bikes (e.g., Timbersled, Camso), 4x4s and overland vehicles, providing a lightweight, compact means of transporting gas for off-road racing on closed courses, as well as for international travel.

In 2016, Giant Loop’s original 1-gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder won a Powersports Business “Nifty 50” award for top new products.

Each Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is individually pressure tested and made in USA by Fuel Safe®, a leading racing fuel containment manufacturer based in Redmond, Oregon.

NOTE: Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladders are intended only for the temporary transport of liquid hydrocarbons for racing vehicles used in professional off road and closed course competition racing events. The Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder is NOT a portable or long-term fuel storage container as described by ASTM, EPA, ARB or other state or federal agencies.

Flat and unfilled, the 3-Gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder measures 22″ long by 14″ wide. Three heavy-duty webbing and molded rubber handles provide tie-downs and facilitate fuel handling. The 5-gallon Gas Bag Fuel Safe Bladder measures 29” long by 14” wide, with four heavy-duty handles.

All models of Gas Bags feature two rows of webbing daisy chain loops that prevent the Gas Bag from sliding out from under tie-down straps (not included). Filler necks are standard size, fitting “universal” spouts, such as the EZ-Pour (also available from Giant Loop). Available exclusively from Giant Loop and authorized dealers, USA MSRP is $239.99 for the 3-gallon Gas Bag (GL part FSB18-G3) and $299.99 for the 5-gallon Gas Bag (GL part FSB18-G5).
