Giant Loop Customers Travel San Diego to Cabo and Back on Honda XR650Ls

A happy customer, Brad Davis, sent us an update on his recent trip to Baja with his friend. They used the Giant Loop Coyote Saddlebag and the Rubber Boa Straps on their trip across deserts and dunes. Here’s what he says:4[1]

“Our Baja trip was the best vacation I have ever taken. Just two guys on Honda XR650L’s riding from San Diego to Cabo and back. We did 2,200 miles over nine days. The Coyote Saddlebags functioned amazingly and were able to carry everything we needed to camp and live for the entire trip. The bags carry weight well and did not noticeably affect how the bike handled. The Rubber Boa Straps were extremely useful and were perfect for carrying a quart of oil or a bottle of tequila.

The trip got better and better every day. We spent one night in a palapa on the beach in San Felipe. We hit 95mph on the salt flats going to Scorpion Bay (the XR wouldn’t go any faster). We rode with the Dessert Assassins Rip to Cabo on a rough section of trail into La Paz. We partied with Playboy models in Cabo. We camped deep in the sand dunes outside of Guerrero Negro. We got lost trying cross the desert at night. And finally made it back to San Diego without any major issues and some great memories.

Thanks
Brad”

Video: Rubber Boa Straps

By | Blog, FAQ, Fitment, Giant Loop Gear, Tech Tips, Video | No Comments

Video overview of Giant Loop’s Rubber Boa Straps. Confidently put the squeeze on a spare inner tube, tools, water or other essential gear with Giant Loop’s Rubber Boa Straps—hooked to dirt bike fenders. Rubber Boa Straps apply dynamic tension with stretch elastic shock cord and a simple locking slot, creating a dead-solid connection between plastic fenders and relatively small and lightweight gear, even in demanding off-road terrain. Available in a package of two.

Rubber Boa Straps take their name from a docile, worm-like snake, native to Oregon’s high desert where Giant Loop is located. Rubber Boas are the most northerly of boa species, and they kill prey by constriction.

Giant Loop Rider: Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 with MoJavi Saddlebag and GL Mounts

By | Fitment, Riders, Suzuki, Tech Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

Local rider Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 is about as nicely set up as any we’ve seen, with Trail Tech Voyager GPS, Race Tech Suspension, full Yoshimura Exhaust and aftermarket carb. Here are some details about his MoJavi Saddlebag installation using the new Giant Loop (GL) Mounts, which will work great with the Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag, too. #golightgofastgofar

Geoff is using the Giant Loop GL Mounts, sharing a bolt point with his Suzuki DRZ400’s passenger peg mounts. GL Mounts help keep straps away from hot exhaust and shorten anchor strap length to maximize stability of Giant Loop Saddlebag installation.

Giant Loop GL Mounts universal soft luggage mounting solution

Geoff’s using a small spacer to set the Giant Loop GL Mount away from the passenger peg’s other bolt and to give plenty of room to work when anchoring Giant Loop Saddelbags and soft luggage to dirt bikes and dual sport motorcycles.

Giant Loop’s GL Mounts make a clean installation, with straps kept away from boots on both sides.

Since Geoff leaves the MoJavi Saddlebag mounted on his Suzuki DRZ400 all the time, he’s using a hard-mount bolt-on installation (which can also be done with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag).

Two bolts through the dirt bike’s rear plastic fender and metal fender brace, a couple of washers and nylock nuts, and the Giant Loop Saddlebag is not coming off. Period.

Giant Loop Review: December 2013 Dirt Bike Magazine Highlights Rubber Boa Straps

By | Giant Loop Gear, KTM, Reviews, Riders | No Comments

Giant Loop attended the 2013 KTM Adventure Rally in Steamboat Springs, last September. Dirt Bike Magazine was also there, since it was the first chance to demo ride the new KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R. While there, they covered some of the innovative products on vendor row and found our new Rubber Boa Straps. Dirt Bike said in their current issue: “Several riders used Giant Loop’s specialized bungees to hold stuff down. Clean and sano.”
