Giant Loop Riders: Quinn Cody & Kendall Norman, JCR/Honda, Pre-Run Baja on Honda CRF450X with MoJavi Saddlebag

By | Blog, Riders | No Comments


I about fell off my stool when Quinn Cody called me up and ordered a couple of our MoJavi Saddlebags. Yep, THAT Quinn Cody: 2010 Baja 500 winner (with JCR/Honda teammate Kendall Norman), 2010 Vegas to Reno winner (riding solo!), 2009 Baja 1000 winner, etc. (check out his Bio for the whole list). He and Kendall are out riding Baja right now, using their MoJavi Saddlebags to take some of the weight of tools and parts out of their backpacks. Here’s an email message Quinn sent last night before taking off:

“Ok so here we go again – We have had a whole year to prepare, and we’re less prepared than last year…. But we’re going anyway, Kendall Norman and I are riding from Ensenada to Cabo San Lucas and back, 3000 miles totally unsupported, with only what we can carry on our Honda CRF 450x’s. Trunks, flip flops, a tee shirt and some tools.”

Pro Mountain Biker Rad Ross Schnell Rips Baja with Giant Loop Saddlebag on KTM 530 EXC

By | Riders | No Comments

Shortly after we launched Giant Loop in the fall of 2008, pro mountain biker Rad Ross Schnell was one of our first customers. When his Giant Loop Saddlebag arrived, he almost immediately strapped it to his KTM 530 EXC and rode the full length of Baja California. This feature article, ?Rad Ross Schnell: All-American Badass,? appeared in Bike magazine last year. Yet another mountain bike/motorcycling crossover ? people who care about weight and performance are the first to embrace our ?go light, go fast? approach to motorcycle touring. -hoc

?The trip was RAD! That?s the first serious moto tour I?ve ever done and can definitely say that I?ll be doing it again. The saddlebag worked awesome!! It was such a good size and was such a simple setup. Thanks again for all the help and quick shipment, it was definitely the setup!? ? Ross

MotoSyberia 2009: 6666 km in 66 days on KTM 400 EXCs with Giant Loop Saddlebags

By | Riders | No Comments

It made my day when the mailman delivered a package from Poland containing a disc full of photos and a copy of the 2010 MotoSyberia calendar. Motorcycling is a world of extremes, and among the extreme MotoSyberia pretty much leaves all other contenders eating their mud and dust. These guys do things on motorcycles most people would simply call crazy. For this reason, we were really excited when Mac at MotoSyberia contact us about sponsoring their 2009 trip and equipping their bikes with our Giant Loop Saddlebags (this was before we introduced the new, improved Coyote Saddlebag). Our saddlebags, they told us, were the only product up to the task of the expedition they had planned. Mac?s sense of humor is straight out of the movie Spinal Tap ? here?s how they describe the expedition:

?MotoSyberia 2009 ? extremely mental expedition to the unknown. First successful attempt to get to Anadyr overland in summer. The laborious southern route turned out to be too difficult. After surrender and many mental problems they successfully got through the northern route to the capital of Chukotka- Anadyr. MotoSyberia 2009 is about achieving the aim at any cost. MotoSyberia Reactivation was lead by the prince of the darkness, satan himself. The route: 6666 km in 66 days, Magadan, Omsuchan,almost Evensk, Magadan, Seymchan, Anyusk, Bilibino, Evgekinot, Anadyr. Riders: Maciej Swinarski, Miroslaw Kolerski, Grzegorz Sadowski. Bikes: KTMEXC400?

We can?t wait to see what these guys come up with next ? and to put Giant Loop gear to the ultimate test! Take a look at the MotoSyberia website ? if you dare . . .

Great Basin Saddlebag Tours Alaska on BMW F800GS

By | Riders | No Comments


?I cannot tell you how much I love the Great Basin Saddlebag ? it made the trip and ride spectacular. When you said waterproof, it truly is! I rode through a rain/hail squall, getting it soaked. The bag performed better than I could have dreamed, and I can say it will truly handle anything that Alaska riders can throw at it. Here are some quick pics for you and your crew. Thanks again.?

Giant Loop Saddlebag Tours Spain?s Pyreneese Mountains on KTM 525 EXC

By | Riders | No Comments


?Hi Guys. I bought a Giant Loop Saddlebag off you for a 1000 km, 7-day ride through the Spanish Pyrenees Mountains. Can I just say what a fantastic bit of kit it turned out to be. A week?s worth of kit, plus my tools, sleeping bag and tent. Very robust, and most of the time I didnt know it was there! Thanks again, it was the dog?s bollocks, as we say here in England.? ?
