Packing for your motorcycle trip? Consider a Giant Loop™ bag

Since riding his KTM 950 Adventure down to South America in 2008 and launching RIDE Adventures in 2010, Eric now resides in Oregon for most of each year. Riding is still a regular part of his work though, in that guiding tours is a passion he'll always have, and researching new routes and regions allows RIDE Adventures to continue growing and providing reliable travel services to adventure minded riders and travelers from around the world.

Giant Loop Great Basin

Giant Loop ™ Moto, a company that is seeing rapid growth in the motorcycle travel industry, presented one of the most notable products at the BMW MOA Rally in Bloomsburg.

For years, we’ve been strapping on separate boxes, bags, and top cases to our motorcycles in attempt to bring everything necessary for a motorcycle adventure.  Aside from being an inefficient use of space (with so much wasted space between each bag/box) such an array of storage space can sure make a bike feel cumbersome and top heavy.

Enter Giant Loop™ Moto’s Great Basin™ Saddlebag, quite possibly the smartest design for adventure motorcycle travel in the marketplace.  Made from what is essentially the same waterproof material as a trucker’s tarp, 50 liters of storage space has never been so simple, compact, or well-positioned on a motorcycle.  As shown in the picture, the Great Basin™ Saddlebag makes excellent use of the space closest to the motorcycle, helping keep the weight of your luggage as low and centralized as possible.  This low-centralized weight distribution is not only terrific for general riding, but also beneficial for moments when your riding requires some extra agility.  (Think tough trails, or even sudden reactions to avoid crashes.) 

With compression straps, heat shields, storm flaps, and a whole variety of other features built in, it’s no wonder the Giant Loop™ booth at the BMW MOA rally was so busy.  Be sure to check the Giant Loop™ website for more information, and make note of other products they make like tank bags and “combo” bags that might help you pack for your motorcycle tour or rental in South America!
