Giant Loop Review: Siskiyou Panniers in Dirt Rider’s “DR Tested”

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.”

Giant Loop’s Pronghorn Straps “Product of the Year – Under $25″ by Dirt Rider Magazine

Thank you Dirt Rider Magazine for naming Giant Loop’s Pronghorn Straps “Product of the Year – Under $25″!

Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps Dirt Rider Magazine Product of the Year

Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps Dirt Rider Magazine “Product of the Year- Under $25″

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.”

Giant Loop Riders: 2 KTMs, 2 Coyote Saddlebags on Washington Backcountry Discovery Route

Hi Giant Loop! We just returned from the WABDR, and I thought you might like some of our photos with your gear. It worked great by the way. Even with the heavy rain, the gear inside the dry bags stayed dry. We had a great trip! — Ernie

Giant Loop Racers: Sheenans Finish Strong At “24 Hours of Starvation Ridge”

Congratulations to GL racers Tracy Sheehan and Nick Sheehan for the strong finish in brutal conditions at the 24 hours of Starvation Ridge race! Looks like the Bushwackers Hand Guards came in handy.
24 Hours of Starvation Ridge, ProCaliber, Giant Loop Bushwacker Hand Guards
Here’s Tracy’s report: “Here’s a small recap of the race this weekend. Mud, lots of mud… Nick crashed and hurt his shoulder and midnight still went out for another night lap. I had some intermittent bike trouble. Nick placed 3rd overall. I placed 5th overall. It was a very challenging weekend, but overall we had a blast!! I truly Love my Bushwhacker Guards!”

Giant Loop Rider: Why “Ride Must Go On” Chose Giant Loop For Global Adventure

Turkish filmmaker Tolga Basol has already ridden across Asia on a KTM 1190 Adventure R, now he’s enjoying the desert southwest of the United States. He added a camerman to his solo journey to help document the trip for Turkish television. This pic is the KTM 640 Adventure Tolga bought in LA for his cameraman to ride.

Here’s a recent post on his Ride Must Go On page:

Ride Must Go On - KTM 640 Adventure equipped with Giant Loop

I am getting some questions about the luggage system I am using, so I wanted to share my thoughts about the topic here. I have used hard panniers in the past on my travels to Middle East, Central Asia, Europe so I have tasted both.

- Hard panniers are way more heavier then a soft luggage setup. That being said, I try to travel on dirt roads as much as possible so the weight is an issue for me. The lighter the bike it is, the happier I am.

- I have managed to bend hard panniers, stuck my leg between the pannier and the bike couple of times, hit something hard while riding off road… The results are not good. Soft panniers are way more durable and sturdy than hard ones imho. Even if you manage to tear them apart, they are much more easier to fix.

- I have witnessed self destruction of hard panniers in Road Of Bones. My friend with hard panniers had to abandon them because the cases and rack system were destroyed.

- My soft luggage setup is totally waterproof, flexible and have pockets so when needed I can carry lots of stuff with them.

- I use Giant Loop equipment, I was already using their products so I believe they are the best on the market now. I asked them to support me for my RTW and I am happy they are.

- I have Siskiyou Panniers, Tillamook Dry Bag, Fandango Tank Bag along with pannier pockets. To keep them steady on the bike I use Pronghorn Straps which are one of the best equipment so far I have ever used.
