By | BMW, FAQ, Fitment, Tech Tips, Video | No Comments

This quick video shows how to pack for two people camping on a motorcycle. By using various modular components from Giant Loop’s Adventure Proof Packing System – and high quality outdoor gear – motorcycle touring 2-up can be fun, safe, comfortable and self-sufficient.

2 Rogue Dry Bags, Tillamook Dry Bag, Siskiyou Panniers, Kiger Tank Bag, Pannier Pockets, Bushwackers Hand Guards

BMW F800GS packed with 2 Rogue Dry Bags, Tillamook Dry Bag, Siskiyou Panniers, Kiger Tank Bag, Pannier Pockets, Bushwackers Hand Guards.

2-up motorcycle travel and camping

TIP: Passenger should wear a helmet with no visor fro 2-up motorcycle travel and camping!

Lighter weight bulky items such as sleeping bags, pads and tent are packed higher, while heavier items such as tool, spare inner tube, extra fuel, stove, cook kit and food are packed below seat height. Weight is also distributed front-to-back to help prevent a tail-heavy bike with an unsafe light front wheel.

Packing camping gear for two on  a motorcycle can be a challenge

Carrying camping gear for two on a motorcycle is simply with Giant Loop’s modular, customizable Adventure Proof Packing System

Many small compartments are better than fewer larger ones, helping keep gear organized and easily within reach without extra unpacking and re-packing. Have any tips to share with us? Post them in your comments here!

By | Blog, BMW, Riders | No Comments

Giant Loop Rider Jack Broomall is taking part in the historic Cannon Ball Centennial, following the original route taken by Erwin Baker, the original “Cannon Ball”. He is riding a BMW F800GS with Fandango Tank Bag and Tillamook Dry Bag. Jack has ridden cross country a few times before, most notably on his vintage Hodaka, in Two-Strokes Across America.

Quote from the Cannonballproject.com:
“On May 3, 1914, Erwin Baker, a motorcycle racer and enthusiast from Indianapolis, Indiana, left downtown San Diego, California on a twin-cylinder, 7 horsepower Indian motorcycle en route to New York City.”

For more info on the ride and route, check out their site.

Terence Tay has set out on a 15,000km, three month long journey from his home of Singapore. He has dubbed it “Anywhere But South” and the route travels through?Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar and Malaysia.
He is the first solo biker to travel through Myanmar and wrote in to say “”Btw, I’m officially the first rider to go at it alone in Burma, albeit with an escort car and tourism official (mandatory),”

His BMW F800GS is packed with a Great Basin Saddlebag and Fandango Tank Bag. He had this to say about his choice of luggage, in an?interview with AsiaOne,?before heading out on the adventure.
“…Mr Tay: “I have opted for soft panniers as they’re lightweight. Weight distribution can be placed closer to the centre of the bike to improve handling. Also, they will not bend out of shape in a crash…”
