Canadian rider and Overland Adventure Rally organizer Lawrence Hacking’s article recounting his experiences racing the Mongolian Rally appear in the February 2015 issue of American Motorcyclist magazine, published by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA). He rode a 2014 Honda CRF 450X with Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebag throughout the rally, and here’s what he wrote about it: “To lighten the load on myself, I used the Giant Loop MoJavi bags to carry the heavy items that I would likely need to finish, such as tools and a spare inner tube.”
Photo update from Tolga Basol’s “Ride Must Go On” travels around the world. For the past few months, he’s been in the USA after retrieving his KTM 1190 Adventure from British Columbia, Canada, where it was ocean-freighted from Asia. Tolga’s Siskiyou Panniers, Tillamook Dry Bag and Fandango Pro Tank Bag have been punished over the past the year on a journey that began in Turkey and spanned the continent of Asia off-road.
Thanks BMW Owners News for highlighting the new 100% waterproof Columbia Dry Bag: “Better than top-loading duffels, Columbia Dry Bag opens from both ends, providing quick access to gear without unstrapping the Dry Bag from the motorcycle.”

Dirt Rider Magazine‘s December issue features Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers in a “DR Tested” long-term use review, written after using them in Baja and months of riding off-road and city commuting. Dirt Rider concludes: “Other than being super dusty, after months of use the Siskiyou Panniers are no worse for the wear and have served as an essential overnight riding gear pack as well as been a huge help with commuting duties. Also, since they are not bike-specific and are super adjustable, these could be the only panniers you’ll need — even if you have multiple bikes.”
Dirt Rider writes: “We can always use straps, whether on the trail or just to secure the load in an overstuffed truck bed. These super simple, seemingly infinitely stretchable straps have held tight for hundreds of miles of off-road riding. They can secure a headlight, strap down a fender pack, hold down fully loaded panniers, and even hold a broken boot together.”
