Here’s how to install Giant Loop’s Kiger Tank Bag, Fandango Tank Bag or Diablo Tank Bag on motorcycles – like the BMW GS models or the Honda CB500X shown in the video – that do not have exposed frame rails. By removing the seat, installing the Tank Bag Harness, putting the seat back down and tightening, the mounting is clean and tidy! #golightgofastgofar

Local rider Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 is about as nicely set up as any we’ve seen, with Trail Tech Voyager GPS, Race Tech Suspension, full Yoshimura Exhaust and aftermarket carb. Here are some details about his MoJavi Saddlebag installation using the new Giant Loop (GL) Mounts, which will work great with the Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag, too. #golightgofastgofar
Geoff is using the Giant Loop GL Mounts, sharing a bolt point with his Suzuki DRZ400′s passenger peg mounts. GL Mounts help keep straps away from hot exhaust and shorten anchor strap length to maximize stability of Giant Loop Saddlebag installation.
Geoff’s using a small spacer to set the Giant Loop GL Mount away from the passenger peg’s other bolt and to give plenty of room to work when anchoring Giant Loop Saddelbags and soft luggage to dirt bikes and dual sport motorcycles.
Giant Loop’s GL Mounts make a clean installation, with straps kept away from boots on both sides.
Since Geoff leaves the MoJavi Saddlebag mounted on his Suzuki DRZ400 all the time, he’s using a hard-mount bolt-on installation (which can also be done with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag).
Two bolts through the dirt bike’s rear plastic fender and metal fender brace, a couple of washers and nylock nuts, and the Giant Loop Saddlebag is not coming off. Period.
Geoff secures the zip-off sleeves of his riding jacket to the front fender with Giant Loop’s Rubber Boa Straps.
Thanks XLADV.com for the review — and especially for mentioning zipper care (that’s one reason why your Fandango Tank Bag has served your well for so long)! The new Giant Loop Tank Bag Dry Pod fits all models of the Fandango and Diablo Tank Bag. Check out the new Fandango Pro Tank Bag with integrated electronics pass-through, concealed document pocket, bigger map pocket, rider-facing outside mesh pocket and more rider-friendly features. #golightgofastgofar

Pics and comments from customer Scott in New Zealand:
Just did a 6 day South Island New Zealand 2000+kl ride mainly off road with a coyote saddlebag on my tricked out gen 1 2007 Klr 650. The design is right on. When you lean your hips back and sideways on corners it’s real easy to just sit on the bag! And that thing didn’t budge the whole trip. Great design.
I’ve been spouting off on Klr owners with a pic of my bike and have gotten a lot of questions to what my bag is. So if you get any Klr orders of late, that’s probably from my post. Seems to be a lot of interest.
I hope to move back to Bend sometime but I gotta tell you, South Island New Zealand rivals Alaska. It’s amazing. Hard to leave that!
The Kurt Caselli Foundation is proud to announce the release of its first officially endorsed safety product, the Giant Loop Tracker Packer, a ruggedized holster for the SPOT Gen3 GPS-enabled location tracker and emergency beacon.
Developed in conjunction with The Kurt Caselli Foundation, the super rugged and secure Tracker Packer firmly attaches the SPOT Gen3 device to the rider’s arm, backpack shoulder strap, handlebars, fork tube, and many other locations. Redundant closures, multiple connections, and tether points, help prevent the SPOT from becoming separated from rider or bike, even in the roughest, most extreme riding conditions. The Tracker Packer enables riders to follow best practices by wearing the SPOT within reach, in a horizontal position for optimal satellite signal. By keeping the device in a visible, easy-to-access location, anyone on the scene can quickly deploy the SPOT’s SOS signal in the event of an emergency, sending the GPS location to an international emergency response coordination center.
“It has been a pleasure to work with Giant Loop and take the Tracker Packer from just an idea to a finished product” says KCF Rider Safety Adviser, Quinn Cody “This is our first mission related safety product and thanks to a great group of motivated people, we have been able to bring it to market in less than a year.”
Made in USA with military-specification components and materials, the Tracker Packer is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. USA MSRP is $40. The Tracker Packer is available bundled with the SPOT Gen3 for $150 exclusively at Giant Loop A portion of all Tracker Packer sales will be donated to the Kurt Caselli Foundation.
Giant Loop’s new Tracker Packer holster for the SPOT Gen3 just won a 2015 “Nifty 50″ Best New Products award from Powersports Business! Developing the Tracker Packer was a true passion project for Giant Loop, Quinn Cody and the Kurt Caselli Foundation, and we are honored to have the Tracker Packer selected by the editors at PSB and its sister consumer magazines, who review huge numbers of products from throughout powersports to select the very best.
