* Route suggestions and GPS tracks are provided free of charge for your convenience.
* We recommend using a SPOT tracker or similar device for self-rescue. Cell phone coverage is unreliable in rural Oregon. There are no support vehicles, and many available routes are far from medical and mechanical help.
* Unpaid volunteers will be available to facilitate forming groups of riders with similar skills, bike types and interests, but riders are responsible for themselves, are free to choose any route they wish to ride and are free to ride with any other riders – or by themselves as individuals.

We are getting more and more signups for the Giant Loop Summer Lake Ride. Today I talked to a party of four that will be joining us from Washington.

atv_permit

This is a reminder to riders that riding public land in Oregon requires an OHV permit, costing $10.50, and for Oregon residents, an OHV Safety Education card.

ohv safety

If you have a OHV permit from a bordering state, you are good to go. If you do not have a permit, you can buy one from a local dealer, even if the bike is licensed out of state and you are not an Oregon resident.?Here are links to the OHV Safety Training?and the OHV permit vendors.

Kurt Caselli Foundation logoProtecting and Supporting the Lives of Off-Road Riders.

The Kurt Caselli Foundation was established in 2013. The focus of the foundation is the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry. While we understand the inherent elements of danger in this industry, we aim to help minimize this danger to the best of our ability. The foundation has a three-part mission that encompasses safety precautions for riders before, during, and after a racing career.

1. Before racing, we are committed to encouraging, developing, and standardizing safety precautions that will help minimize risk outside of the rider’s control.

2. During racing, we are committed to developing, establishing, and encouraging the use of safety equipment and policies to increase the safety of the riders.

3. After racing, we are committed to providing a safety net that allows and encourages former racers to further their education and reach career goals for themselves and their families.

The Tracker Packer represents a year-long collaboration between Giant Loop and the Kurt Caselli Foundation, with multiple Baja 1000 champ Quinn Cody providing direction and prototype testing.

Canadian rider and Overland Adventure Rally organizer Lawrence Hacking’s article recounting his experiences racing the Mongolian Rally appear in the February 2015 issue of American Motorcyclist magazine, published by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA). He rode a 2014 Honda CRF 450X with Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebag throughout the rally, and here’s what he wrote about it: “To lighten the load on myself, I used the Giant Loop MoJavi bags to carry the heavy items that I would likely need to finish, such as tools and a spare inner tube.”

Photo update from Tolga Basol’s “Ride Must Go On” travels around the world. For the past few months, he’s been in the USA after retrieving his KTM 1190 Adventure from British Columbia, Canada, where it was ocean-freighted from Asia. Tolga’s Siskiyou Panniers, Tillamook Dry Bag and Fandango Pro Tank Bag have been punished over the past the year on a journey that began in Turkey and spanned the continent of Asia off-road.

Giant Loop Review: Siskiyou Panniers in Dirt Rider’s “DR Tested”

By | Reviews | No Comments

Dirt Rider Magazine‘s December issue features Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers in a “DR Tested” long-term use review, written after using them in Baja and months of riding off-road and city commuting. Dirt Rider concludes: “Other than being super dusty, after months of use the Siskiyou Panniers are no worse for the wear and have served as an essential overnight riding gear pack as well as been a huge help with commuting duties. Also, since they are not bike-specific and are super adjustable, these could be the only panniers you’ll need ? even if you have multiple bikes.”

Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps Dirt Rider Magazine “Product of the Year- Under $25”

Dirt Rider writes: “We can always use straps, whether on the trail or just to secure the load in an overstuffed truck bed. These super simple, seemingly infinitely stretchable straps have held tight for hundreds of miles of off-road riding. They can secure a headlight, strap down a fender pack, hold down fully loaded panniers, and even hold a broken boot together.”

By | Honda, Racer, Riders | No Comments

Congratulations to GL racers Tracy Sheehan and Nick Sheehan for the strong finish in brutal conditions at the 24 hours of Starvation Ridge race! Looks like the Bushwackers Hand Guards came in handy.
24 Hours of Starvation Ridge, ProCaliber, Giant Loop Bushwacker Hand Guards
Here’s Tracy’s report: “Here’s a small recap of the race this weekend. Mud, lots of mud… Nick crashed and hurt his shoulder and midnight still went out for another night lap. I had some intermittent bike trouble. Nick placed 3rd overall. I placed 5th overall. It was a very challenging weekend, but overall we had a blast!! I truly Love my Bushwhacker Guards!”

Giant Loop Rider: Why “Ride Must Go On” Chose Giant Loop For Global Adventure

By | KTM, Riders | No Comments

Turkish filmmaker Tolga Basol has already ridden across Asia on a KTM 1190 Adventure R, now he’s enjoying the desert southwest of the United States. He added a camerman to his solo journey to help document the trip for Turkish television. This pic is the KTM 640 Adventure Tolga bought in LA for his cameraman to ride.

Here’s a recent post on his Ride Must Go On page:

Ride Must Go On - KTM 640 Adventure equipped with Giant Loop

I am getting some questions about the luggage system I am using, so I wanted to share my thoughts about the topic here. I have used hard panniers in the past on my travels to Middle East, Central Asia, Europe so I have tasted both.

– Hard panniers are way more heavier then a soft luggage setup. That being said, I try to travel on dirt roads as much as possible so the weight is an issue for me. The lighter the bike it is, the happier I am.

– I have managed to bend hard panniers, stuck my leg between the pannier and the bike couple of times, hit something hard while riding off road… The results are not good. Soft panniers are way more durable and sturdy than hard ones imho. Even if you manage to tear them apart, they are much more easier to fix.

– I have witnessed self destruction of hard panniers in Road Of Bones. My friend with hard panniers had to abandon them because the cases and rack system were destroyed.

– My soft luggage setup is totally waterproof, flexible and have pockets so when needed I can carry lots of stuff with them.

– I use Giant Loop equipment, I was already using their products so I believe they are the best on the market now. I asked them to support me for my RTW and I am happy they are.

– I have Siskiyou Panniers, Tillamook Dry Bag, Fandango Tank Bag along with pannier pockets. To keep them steady on the bike I use Pronghorn Straps which are one of the best equipment so far I have ever used.

Giant Loop Review: Pronghorn Straps on Cycle World’s Baja Surf Adventure

By | BMW, KTM, Reviews | No Comments

Cycle World magazine’s Jeff Allen and Sean Klinger recently loaded their adventure bikes – a KTM 1190 Adventure R and a BMW 1200 GS Adventure – with surf boards and went on Baja run, dubbed “Baja 500 Surf & Turf” in the November 2014 issue. They used Giant Loop’s Pronghorn Straps to secure the surf boards to their motorcycles, and as you can see from the photos this wasn’t a sit-down-putt-putt kind of ride!

Cycle World magazine Baja 500 Surf & Turf with Pronghorn Straps
Here’s what Cycle World wrote about the Pronghorn Straps:
“We used the awesome Pronghorn Straps from Giant Loop (giantloopmoto.com) as attachment points to keep springy tension in the tie-downs, which kept the boards snug and secure with little chance of slack developing. A quick test run down the freeway at 80 mph and a few curb and speed-bump jumps as shakedown proved this was the right solution, and we were comfortable with the setup for the trip.”

Giant Loop Racer: Seat Time Host Brian Pierce Finishes 2014 Baja Rally on 1987 Suzuki SP 200 with MoJavi Saddlebag

By | Racer, Riders | No Comments

brian pierce seat time suzuki 200
Seat Time host Brian Pierce thought his racing was done when he blew up his bike at this year’s BAJA RALLY – then he and his father got inspired and prepped his dad’s 27-year-old Suzuki SP 200 so he could finish the race!

Says Brian: “Here’s the 1987 Suzuki SP 200 with the GL MoJavi Saddlebag ready for the final day! our bags worked great. Let me know if you would like more pics of the SP 200 with them on there. It was the perfect way to use the bike you had to conquer a 300+ mile day in Baja.”

Congrats Brian – undaunted!

Here’s the recent Seat Time episode recapping this year’s Baja Rally:


“2014 Baja Rally Overall Winner Scott Bright joins us on the show and he’s followed up by Erek Kudla. The Baja Rally was a great experience and we would love the opportunity to attend again for Baja Rally 3.0.”

Giant Loop FAQ: Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag vs. Pannier Pockets

By | FAQ, Tech Tips | No Comments

Recent customer question: “I am very interested in either the new Buckin’ Roll setup or the Pannier Pockets. I want the Pannier Pockets, but I was wondering if the mounting systems were much different between just the Pockets and the Buckin’ Roll system. It looks to me that the Buckin’ Roll has a lot better (secure) mounting system. Is this true? Or will the pannier pockets be fine for all riding styles? Also is it possible to purchase the Buckin’ Roll with Pannier Pockets only? I am planning to mount this to a Honda CRF250L. Thanks for any info/pics you might have.”

Here’s our reply – frankly, it is a little confusing the way we’ve named the Buckin’ Roll . . . Hopefully, this is clear as mud.

Hi –

Part ONE: Pannier Pockets
The Pannier Pockets (set of 2) can be used independently with the included center attachment strap. By anchoring the front of the Pockets solidly to your radiator shrouds, then drawing tension with the center strap, the Panniers Pockets are super stable in all riding conditions. I’ve ridden in Baja HARD off road with them, customers have ridden everything from Madagascar to Grand Canyon with them – they work great and have become part of the kit that I use every ride.

Here’s our product designer’s DRZ400. The center strap can also run under the seat’s front anchor if you pop the seat off.

giant-loop-pannier-pockets(1)

 

Here’s our webpage for the Pannier Pockets.

Part TWO: Pannier Pockets w Tank Bags
The Pannier Pockets also can be used with any of our Tank Bags, securing to the Harness of the Buckin’ Roll, Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags. What we call the Buckin’ Roll COMPLETE is the Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag + Pannier Pockets (set of 2).

Giant Loop Review: Siskiyou Panniers on Dirt Rider’s Kawasaki KLR650 Test

By | Kawasaki, Reviews | No Comments

Thanks Dirt Rider magazine for kitting out your 2014 Kawasaki KLR650 test bike with Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers! In the November 2014 issue’s “Getting Lost On Purpose – 2014 Kawasaki KLR650 New Edition,” it looks like you put the bike – and our Siskiyou Panniers to a proper test in Baja, Mexico.
DIRT RIDE NOV 2014 SISKIYOU PANNIERS ON KLR650

“There are plenty of safe, controlled, and calculated ways that we could have tested Kawasaki’s big dual-sport bike. Commutes, jeep roads, and mild off-road trails would have been fine, and we did ride the KLR650 in this capacity. Yet riding it 216 miles into Mexico and down the Baja Peninsula, getting lost, riding 55-plus miles of the Baja 500 racecourse, ripping down the beach, and riding back home sounded a tad more exciting. So that’s just what we did.”

DIRT RIDER NOV 2014 SISKIYOU PANNIERS KLR650

“Before heading south of the border we put on a few products to make the trip more managable. . . . We also put on a pair of Kenda Big Block tires, Fastway Adventure footpegs, and Giant Loop Siskiyou Panniers to hold all of our gear.”
