Giant Loop Tech Tip: GL Rider’s Quick Mount Point, Inner Tube Sleeve Prevent Strap Wear

By | KTM, Riders, Tech Tips | No Comments


Giant Loop rider Dave travels Cambodia, doing volunteer service work on his KTM 450 EXC, and he’s used a Giant Loop Coyote Saddlebag for packing his gear through the muddiest tropical rainforest roads and trails. He recently shot us a message, sharing his clever, low-cost, heavy duty mounting point for his Coyote Saddlebag. His attachment point on his bike – “stainless cable, some swage crimps, and steel tube” – helps prevent abrasion of daily use from wearing on his Coyote Saddlebag straps. He’s also using a sleeve made from inner tube rubber – another very effective no-cost solution to protect mounting straps on all of Giant Loop’s rackless luggage systems. Check out his pics:


Thanks for the tech tip, Dave and ride while you can!

By | BMW, Giant Loop Gear, Photos, Saddlebags | No Comments


Terence Tay has set out on a 15,000km, three month long journey from his home of Singapore. He has dubbed it “Anywhere But South” and the route travels through Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar and Malaysia.
He is the first solo biker to travel through Myanmar and wrote in to say “”Btw, I’m officially the first rider to go at it alone in Burma, albeit with an escort car and tourism official (mandatory),”

His BMW F800GS is packed with a Great Basin Saddlebag and Fandango Tank Bag. He had this to say about his choice of luggage, in an interview with AsiaOne, before heading out on the adventure.
“…Mr Tay: “I have opted for soft panniers as they’re lightweight. Weight distribution can be placed closer to the centre of the bike to improve handling. Also, they will not bend out of shape in a crash…”
