Giant Loop Riders: Andes Moto Extreme Project – Husaberg Adventure Team’s Motorcycle Altitude World Record Video

By | Blog, Riders | No Comments

On 18 March 2012, the Husaberg Adventure Team’s “Andes Moto Extreme Project” established a new “Motorcycle Altitude World Record Ride” on Ojos del Salado in Chile. The Husaberg Adventure Team rode Husaberg FE570s equipped with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddelbag and Fandango Tank Bag.

“Andes Moto Extreme Project – Motorcycle Altitude World Record Ride. 18 March 2012. Ojos del Salado, Chile. The Husaberg Adventure Team ride above the prevailing world record of 6,245m, to post a new record mark of 6,361 metres.”

Andes Moto Extreme Team describes why they chose to ride with Giant Loop’s motorcycle soft luggage:

“We dont have a vast support crew behind us, just a couple of friends. So we need to be able to carry our own gear. We need to carry camera gear, video gear etc with us up the mountain every day. Some previous efforts, based on trials bikes carrying nothing on the bikes, were accompanied the whole way by 4WDs and a crew. We don’t have that luxury so needed to plan for luggage. Giant Loop are the pioneers in dirt bike luggage. They invented it. They worked out how to wrap a bag around a bike, so that you dont need racks. So for weight, simplicity, reliability, toughness, Giant Loop had to be the gear for us. We are each taking a Giant Loop Coyote rear bag and a Fandango tank bag.”

Giant Loop Review: MoJavi Saddlebag, Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag Featured in Dirt Rider Magazine’s “Reader’s Bike Test”

By | Blog, Reviews | No Comments

A huge thank you to Giant Loop rider Ian Reid, whose 2006 KTM 450 EXC is featured in the November issue of Dirt Rider in the “Reader’s Bike Test” – with Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebag and Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag!

Dirt Rider editor-at-large Jimmy Lewis writes, “Adding to the charm was the heavily scratched-up bodywork, minimal flash or fanfare and some well-used Giant Loop bags to carry tools and additional camera equipment.”

Giant Loop Review: Rider Magazine’s Arden Kysely Camps with BMW F800GS and Great Basin Saddlebag

By | Blog, Reviews | No Comments

Rider Magazine’s Arden Kysely may be a little miffed about being left behind on a recent trip (who wouldn’t be, really), but in the end he comes out the winner, sharing the joys of minimalist rough camping with his adventure machine, a BMW F800GS, and Giant Loop’s Great Basin Saddlebag, Great Basin Dry Bag and Coyote Dry Bag. Go light, go fast, Arden!

Highlights from Arden’s practical, concise adventure motorcycle camping run-down:

“While the pros are sipping Pinot in a parking lot, I’ll clue you in to real, back-of-beyond dirt camping made possible by a bike such as the BMW F800GS.”

“Too much weight can spoil a ride, so lighten your load with luggage that doesn’t outweigh your gear. Giant Loop’s Great Basin bag packs so low and narrow on the bike you hardly know it’s there.”

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.”
