KTM 690 Enduro with Coyote Saddlebag Tours Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras

Recent email from customer Peter who rides a KTM 690 Enduro equipped with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag:

Dear All,

Fantastic gear, used recently on a quick Easter trip from Mexico D.F. to Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and back. 5,700 km on all kind of tracks, sometimes really bad (not on the photos as I rather focussed on getting through the rough passages).

No wear or tear, perfect fit and the equipment stayed in place, whatever the track was.

Aluminium boxes really are something I try to avoid.

I like your slogan “go fast, go light, go far”. That is the essence of my preferred travel style, too.

Best regards, Peter

Giant Loop Sponsored Rider Danell Lynn Sets New Guinness World Record: Longest Journey By Motorcycle In A Single Country

Giant Loop Sponsored Rider Danell Lynn Sets New Guinness World Record: Longest Journey By Motorcycle In A Single Country

Giant Loop is proud to announce that sponsored rider Danell Lynn has set a new Guinness World Record for “Longest journey by motorcycle in a single country.” Traveling for a year on her Triumph Bonneville equipped with Giant Loop gear, Lynn covered 48,600 miles while riding throughout the contiguous 48 states of the Unite States of America. Lynn is the first solo woman motorcyclist to hold the record.

Although her travels actually covered all 50 states, as well as three Canadian provinces, totaling more than 53,000 miles from September 2014 through September 2015, Guinness only counted the miles logged within the continental 48 states. Duplicate miles also did not apply to the record; each of the 48,600 miles covered different routes.

“Giant Loop was my first and only bag choice as the ride began its planning,” says Lynn. “I am so pleased with it all: The ease of use, and complete dryness of my gear through downpours, will keep me coming back to Giant Loop.”

“We are very proud to have played a role in Danell’s incredible journey,” says Harold Olaf Cecil, owner and founder of Giant Loop. “Daily use really puts our products to a degree of testing most riders would take many years to equal. Danell is also personally dedicated to positive change in the world, and her spirit matches our mission as a brand and company. Well done, Danell!”

For her world record setting ride, Lynn used Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers, Fandango Pro Tank Bag, Tillamook Dry Bag, Rogue Dry Bag, Possibles Pouch and Pronghorn Straps on her 2006 Triumph Bonneville. She also secured her gear with Rok Straps and carried additional fuel in 2-liter Touratech Fuel Canisters, which fit into the front pockets of the Siskiyou Panniers.

Giant Loop Riders: 400-Mile “Lost Coast” Dual Sport Weekend on Honda CRFs with MoJavi Saddlebag, Klamath Tail Rack Pack, Pannier Pockets, Ochoco Enduro Tail Pack

By | FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Honda, Reviews, Riders, Saddlebags, Tank Bags, Uncategorized | No Comments

Cory and his buddies recently enjoyed an “epic” dual sport tour in Northern California!

Hello at Giant loop,

I thought I’d send you a few shots from our most recent adventure from the lost coast. Epic 400 mile two day ride with fantastic weather and terrain conditions. Thanks for the great gear. I put it through the ringer with brush, rocks, mud and an exit or two in the in a mud hole and on the gravel. Performed awesome. The waterproof liner for the Klamath tail pack fit perfectly and after several water crossings and a swim in the mud I opened it a the end of the day to find a puddle of water on top of the liner and my wallet, phone, and spare goggles dry as a bone. Look forward to lots more use as our riding season here on the lost coast is just getting started. You guys make it down this way and we’ll take you on a giant loop of our own.
Thanks again
Corey and the riders of the lost coast.

P.s. The pannier pockets with a 1.8 liter platypus hoser hydration bladder worked awesome, back up 1 liter on the other side. 1st ride without a pack on my back! It made a huge difference at the end of the day.
