Ultimate Motorcycling Review: Ténéré 700 Project Bike With Giant Loop Fandango Tank Bag

Check it out! Giant Loop Fandango Tank Bag reviewed with a Ténéré 700 Project Bike on Ultimate Motorcycling by Neil Wyenn

“There are so many purpose-built Giant Loop cargo bags that I needed to carefully study the Oregon-based company’s photo-rich and descriptive website to narrow down my choices. While on the Ultimate Motorcycling Yamaha Ténéré 700 Project Bike, I wanted ready access to small items, such as snacks, smartphone, glasses, flashlight, passes, maps, garage door opener, hat, and sunblock, so it was time to test the Giant Loop Fandango tank bag.
Giant Loop has recently redesigned the $260 Fandango tank bag, lowering its profile, enhancing waterproofing, and expanding its cargo capacity to eight liters…

There is a convenient, small, hooded pass-through on the front of the tank bag for cables, wires, or the like, so water can get inside if you happen to dump your bike in a deep creek crossing. That is why Giant Loop includes a full-size dry bag for extra moisture and dust protection. They claim the Fandango Tank Bag is bulletproof, but I won’t be testing that.
I have been using the bag for six months, and I have mounted it as a tail bag almost as many times as I have mounted it as a tank bag. When I traverse tight trails or high-speed forest roads, I like to stand far forward, so I move the Fandango to the Ténéré 700’s rear. Conveniently, the stiff, high back (now front) acts as a backrest if the Fandango is packed full. I can’t imagine any more utility than a water-resistant eight-liter tank bag that is also a secure tail bag using the same mounting harness. The Giant Loop Fandango Tank Bag exceeded my expectations, proving itself to be even more versatile than I envisioned.”Neil Wyenn, 5.122
