Giant Loop Rider: Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 with MoJavi Saddlebag and GL Mounts

By | Fitment, Riders, Suzuki, Tech Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

Local rider Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 is about as nicely set up as any we’ve seen, with Trail Tech Voyager GPS, Race Tech Suspension, full Yoshimura Exhaust and aftermarket carb. Here are some details about his MoJavi Saddlebag installation using the new Giant Loop (GL) Mounts, which will work great with the Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag, too. #golightgofastgofar

Geoff is using the Giant Loop GL Mounts, sharing a bolt point with his Suzuki DRZ400’s passenger peg mounts. GL Mounts help keep straps away from hot exhaust and shorten anchor strap length to maximize stability of Giant Loop Saddlebag installation.

Geoff’s using a small spacer to set the Giant Loop GL Mount away from the passenger peg’s other bolt and to give plenty of room to work when anchoring Giant Loop Saddelbags and soft luggage to dirt bikes and dual sport motorcycles.

Giant Loop’s GL Mounts make a clean installation, with straps kept away from boots on both sides.

Since Geoff leaves the MoJavi Saddlebag mounted on his Suzuki DRZ400 all the time, he’s using a hard-mount bolt-on installation (which can also be done with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag).

Two bolts through the dirt bike’s rear plastic fender and metal fender brace, a couple of washers and nylock nuts, and the Giant Loop Saddlebag is not coming off. Period.

Giant Loop Review: December 2013 Dirt Bike Magazine Highlights Rubber Boa Straps

By | Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Reviews, Riders | No Comments

Giant Loop attended the 2013 KTM Adventure Rally in Steamboat Springs, last September. Dirt Bike Magazine was also there, since it was the first chance to demo ride the new KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R. While there, they covered some of the innovative products on vendor row and found our new Rubber Boa Straps. Dirt Bike said in their current issue: “Several riders used Giant Loop’s specialized bungees to hold stuff down. Clean and sano.”

Giant Loop Rubber Boa Straps in Cycle News magazine

“Giant Loop’s Rubber Boa Straps apply dynamic tension with a stretch elastic shock cord and a simple locking slot, creating a dead-solid connection between plastic fenders and relatively small and lightweight gear, even in demanding off-road terrain.
