Giant Loop Review: Gear Scout writes about BMW F650GS with Fandango, Coyote and Rogue

By | Blog, BMW, Fitment, Photos, Reviews, Saddlebags, Uncategorized | No Comments

Over at ExpeditionPortal.comChristophe Noel tells about using the full Giant Loop motorcycle packing system on his BMW F650 Dakar.  Christophe is using a Fandango Tank Bag, Coyote Saddlebag with Drypods and Rogue Dry Bag. His BMW is a desirable edition and Giant Loop looks just right, all mounted up.

He writes in his review,

“…It seems good soft luggage is still hard to come by with many manufacturers banging on with the same poor designs which have been around for years.

I recently found myself once again in need of a soft luggage system and the Giant Loop Coyote Bag came with a chorus of glowing recommendations…

…Individually, each piece has more than exceeded my expectations. Combined, they’re a tour de force of design and construction.”

Thanks for riding Giant Loop, Christophe and for the great review!



Giant Loop Rider: Overland International Tech Editor’s Fly-And-Buy BMW F650GS Paris-Dakar

By | BMW, Riders | No Comments

Thanks Christophe Noel for the beautiful pics and great feedback. Because Giant Loop packing systems strap onto a broad spectrum of motorcycle makes and models, it’s easy to travel for a fly-and-ride or a fly-and-buy.  Just check your saddlebags as luggage and use tank bags and dry bags as carry-on bags. and Glad the Coyote Saddlebag, Coyote Dry Pods, Rogue Dry Bag and Fandango Tank Bag stood up to the torrents of rain in Colorado last week. Wishing better weather for you down the road!

dakar_desertSo, here’s a testimony for you: I flew into Denver on Wednesday with the gear you sent over. I mounted it to my new-to-me Dakar and rode right into Boulder during the worst flood they’ve had in 500 years. It rained 3 inches during my ride north to Fort Collins just 45 miles away. I averaged about 12 mph with the traffic and road closures. Epic is an overused word, but it applies here. I was stuck in Fort Collins until yesterday. I rode another 5 hours in torrential rain with probably another 2-3 inches falling on me.

All of my goodies are dry as a bone in the Coyote bag with dry bags. And those straps are THE BOMB. Amazing how something so simple can be so fantastic.
