By | BMW, FAQ, Fitment, Tech Tips, Video | No Comments

This quick video shows how to pack for two people camping on a motorcycle. By using various modular components from Giant Loop’s Adventure Proof Packing System – and high quality outdoor gear – motorcycle touring 2-up can be fun, safe, comfortable and self-sufficient.

2-up motorcycle travel and camping

TIP: Passenger should wear a helmet with no visor fro 2-up motorcycle travel and camping!

Lighter weight bulky items such as sleeping bags, pads and tent are packed higher, while heavier items such as tool, spare inner tube, extra fuel, stove, cook kit and food are packed below seat height. Weight is also distributed front-to-back to help prevent a tail-heavy bike with an unsafe light front wheel.

Packing camping gear for two on  a motorcycle can be a challenge

Carrying camping gear for two on a motorcycle is simply with Giant Loop’s modular, customizable Adventure Proof Packing System

Many small compartments are better than fewer larger ones, helping keep gear organized and easily within reach without extra unpacking and re-packing. Have any tips to share with us? Post them in your comments here!

Ride Must Go On

TolgaBasol

Hello , my name is Tolga Basol and I?m from Istanbul, Turkey. I’ve been working for the media industry in Istanbul about 14 years. I bought my first motorcycle about 12 years ago. Since then I’ve tried to travel with my bike to different parts of the world on my short holidays from work. I started to carry my video equipment on my travels & figured out how to shoot while traveling on a motorcycle. Finally i decided to quit my job to fulfill probably the biggest dream in my life; riding around the world on a motorcycle.

00002

Route

My journey will start from Istanbul on 1st of June 2014 on a KTM 1190 Adv R. I plan to ride through Russia, Mongolia, Siberia & then I will decide to continue to Southeast Asia or to ship my bike to North America. I will try to catch up Dakar 2015 in South America. Then I will decide the route for Africa. I suspect the route might change quite a lot but I will try to travel as long as I can & I did not set an end date for the trip.

00003

The idea behind my trip is simply ??Ride Must Go On??
KTM Turkey provided me with a brand new KTM 1190 Adv R. I bought the lightest & most compact equipment, kept my clothes to minimalistic & Giant Loop provided all the luggage I need for my journey. And now simply the Ride Must Go On.

Giant Loop Rider: Solana Visits GL With Her Yamaha XT250, To Get Equipped For Her Summer Ride To Canada

By | Riders, Yamaha | No Comments

We were working away packing orders and doing office work, when there was a knock at the door. Solana, a college instructor and Xterra race winner enjoying her first enduro bike, had come by to get some fit questions answered.?She has planned a dual sport ?ride to Canada this summer and needed a packing system for her Yamaha XT250. She had found her used XT250 online, after much searching, and was happy to get a good deal on it. Believing that Giant Loop was the right answer to her packing system questions, she rolled over to visit yesterday.

As the guys got her bike test fitted with a Coyote Saddlebag, Fandango Tank Bag Pro(both in her favorite color ORANGE)and Rogue Dry Bag, she was convinced that she had made the right choice to come to us. Thanks, Solana, for riding Giant Loop!

Giant Loop Review: Tillamook Dry Bag, Rogue Dry Bag in BMW Owners News

By | BMW, Giant Loop Gear, Reviews | No Comments

Thank you Kit J. Vercella for the comprehensive review of Giant Loop’s Tillamook Dry Bag and Rogue Dry Bag in the January 2014 “Kit And Caboodle” column of BMW Owners News magazine. This is our favorite part:

“A personal side note: Although not necessarily relevant to your purchasing decision, there is something heartening about a group of adventure riders down the street who have the vision and technical expertise to create top-shelf, functional motorcycle gear every bit as good (maybe even better) than their corporate rivals worldwide.”

Giant Loop Rider: Overland International Tech Editor’s Fly-And-Buy BMW F650GS Paris-Dakar

By | BMW, Riders | No Comments

Thanks Christophe Noel for the beautiful pics and great feedback. Because Giant Loop packing systems strap onto a broad spectrum of motorcycle makes and models, it’s easy to travel for a fly-and-ride or a fly-and-buy. ?Just check your saddlebags as luggage and use tank bags and dry bags as carry-on bags. and Glad the Coyote Saddlebag, Coyote Dry Pods, Rogue Dry Bag and Fandango Tank Bag stood up to the torrents of rain in Colorado last week. Wishing better weather for you down the road!

dakar_desertSo, here’s a testimony for you: I flew into Denver on Wednesday with the gear you sent over. I mounted it to my new-to-me Dakar and rode right into Boulder during the worst flood they’ve had in 500 years. It rained 3 inches during my ride north to Fort Collins just 45 miles away. I averaged about 12 mph with the traffic and road closures. Epic is an overused word, but it applies here. I was stuck in Fort Collins until yesterday. I rode another 5 hours in torrential rain with probably another 2-3 inches falling on me.

All of my goodies are dry as a bone in the Coyote bag with dry bags. And those straps are THE BOMB. Amazing how something so simple can be so fantastic.

dakarAnyway, I found some sunshine today and thought I’d send you some feedback. 500 more miles tomorrow. Great stuff!

Cheers,
Christophe Noel
