Giant Loop FAQ: Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag vs. Pannier Pockets

By | FAQ, Tech Tips | No Comments

Recent customer question: “I am very interested in either the new Buckin’ Roll setup or the Pannier Pockets. I want the Pannier Pockets, but I was wondering if the mounting systems were much different between just the Pockets and the Buckin’ Roll system. It looks to me that the Buckin’ Roll has a lot better (secure) mounting system. Is this true? Or will the pannier pockets be fine for all riding styles? Also is it possible to purchase the Buckin’ Roll with Pannier Pockets only? I am planning to mount this to a Honda CRF250L. Thanks for any info/pics you might have.”

Here’s our reply – frankly, it is a little confusing the way we’ve named the Buckin’ Roll . . . Hopefully, this is clear as mud.

Hi –

Part ONE: Pannier Pockets
The Pannier Pockets (set of 2) can be used independently with the included center attachment strap. By anchoring the front of the Pockets solidly to your radiator shrouds, then drawing tension with the center strap, the Panniers Pockets are super stable in all riding conditions. I’ve ridden in Baja HARD off road with them, customers have ridden everything from Madagascar to Grand Canyon with them – they work great and have become part of the kit that I use every ride.

Here’s our product designer’s DRZ400. The center strap can also run under the seat’s front anchor if you pop the seat off.

Here’s our webpage for the Pannier Pockets.

Part TWO: Pannier Pockets w Tank Bags
The Pannier Pockets also can be used with any of our Tank Bags, securing to the Harness of the Buckin’ Roll, Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags. What we call the Buckin’ Roll COMPLETE is the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag + Pannier Pockets (set of 2).

Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag (center only – does not include Pannier Pockets)
Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag COMPLETE (includes Pannier Pockets)
Fandango Tank Bag (Pannier Pockets optional)
Diablo Tank Bag (Pannier Pockets optional)

Here’s the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag with Pannier Pocket – what we call the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag COMPLETE:



Giant Loop Review: Dirt Bike Magazine Writes Up The Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag.

By | Reviews, Uncategorized | No Comments


Dirt Bike magazine’s June issue (dirtbikemagazine.com) sums up the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag: “BOTTOM LINE: If you’re one of those riders that has issues with a conventional tank or tail bag, the Giant Loop Buckin’ Roll system may be the hot ticket. It’s the least intrusive bag going today. It would make a nice addition to a tail bag or backpack, and while the $235 price tag gets your attention, the ability to cover some ground on your machine and carry enough goods to survive without killing the handling of the machine makes the Giant Loop Buckin’ Roll a focused and positive adventure/dual-sport product.”



Giant Loop Review: Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag In Dirt Bike Magazine

By | Giant Loop Gear, Reviews | No Comments

Dirt Bike Magazine is usually on the top of our magazine pile, in the Giant Loop Library. We blogged about the Pronghorn Straps getting reviewed in their January issue. Now, in May’s issue, our all new Buckin’ Roll is getting the write up, found in their Adventure, The Goods section.

BNR2 in may DB


The Buckin’ Roll tank bag packing system from Giant Loop consists of three components, which can be used individually or in any combination:  mounting harness, center tool case and Pannier Pockets. The system features water-resistant YKK zippers, Nylike webbing, reflective accents for visibility and are made in the USA.

Thanks DirtBike!

I still gander at Dirt Bike’s Feb coverage, reviewing the KTM 350EXC and Beta 450RS, having gotten a taste for Betas while in Italy last November, for Eicma. The Adventure section in that Feb issue also had an article called “DR Done Right”, about or friends at Seat Concepts rebuild of their crusty old Suzuki DR650 into a proper big-bore 790cc dual sport bike with Baja Designs Squadron. Pretty cool project and reminds me that we has one of those “vintage air-cooled” motos in the GL stable, a late 90’s Honda XR600R. Better not get too many ideas from that article…

Giant Loop Rider: Prepping Our KTM 500 EXC For A Baja Trip

By | Blog, Events, Giant Loop Gear, KTM | No Comments

2014 has a few special rides scheduled for Giant Loop. The first ride is Baja next month, when HOC will travel South with GL Team Rider Brad, to ride with Chilly White of enduro360.com. HOC has always wanted to ride Baja and when Chilly invited him to join a ride this year, HOC jumped at the chance!


This led to evaluating Giant Loop’s KTM 500 EXC and getting some maintenance and setup details organized(and stripping the bike).  The list had everything from gapping the valves, to tires, to suspension, to fuel filler filter sock. Of course, this is in addition to the discussion about which of the new 2014 Giant Loop gear to take on the ride. Coyote Saddle Bag is a no brainer, but which tank bag combination? Fandango Tank Bag, Diablo and Pannier Pockets or Buckin’ Roll with Pannier Pockets, what will it be?

First on the list was a valve check and GL racer Alex Sherman sharpened up his feeler gauges to perform the deed. After Alex gave the valve gaps a good gauging, he found them all in spec and none needed a shim swap. Next on the list was fresh lube, filters and rubber. I got the oil and filter managed, then pulled the Suspension off to send out to our friend Alex Martins at Konflict Suspension. Alex has a new dampening formula for the KTM 500 EXC and HOC is excited to try out the smoother action, during this ride. Next up is swapping the tires out for the Maxxis IT-Desert. The KTM still had the OEM Pirelli front and a half worn Dunlop 606 rear, so with both wheels off, the tire swap was gonna be easy.

Stay tuned for the next round of prep work!



Giant Loop Rider: Kail Visits on Oregon Backcountry Tour with KTM 990 Adventure

By | Fitment, KTM, Riders | No Comments

Really cool to have a visit from Giant Loop rider Kail, who stopped by the shop after five days of exploring the Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route on his KTM 990 Adventure.
Check out his nice tool box fabrication!
And the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag works great with his Safari Tank and the Fandango Tank Bag!
Kail’s kit is light and tight with the Great Basin Saddlebag and Great Basin Dry Bag completing his Giant Loop expedition packing system.
Kail was one of Giant Loop’s first customers when we started in 2008 with the original bolt-on Giant Loop Saddlebag! From March 2009, here’s a blog post and pic from his adventures in California’s Los Padres National Forest on his KTM 530 EXC.
