Turkish filmmaker Tolga Basol has started his 'round the world journey and documentary project Ride Must Go On! He is on a bike supplied by KTM, an 1190 AdventureR with Fandango Tank Bag Pro, Siskiyou Panniers, Tillamook Dry Bag, Rogue Dry Bags and Pannier Pockets. Check out how he has the Pannier Pockets low mounted on his engine guards.

Really good ride review of Coyote Saddlebag on KTM 350 EXC, after camping for 6 days and 1100 miles in the desert.

I stayed with Tolga in Istanbul newyears eve 2013. The girl on the back is from US. We met her that night. She is only joining him through Georgia I think.

Tolga makes some amazing films so keep an eye out for his stuff. I think we will be meeting up again at the 2015 Dakar.. (after he has crossed Siberia)

GIANT LOOP RIDE: SUMMER LAKE HOT SPRINGS, AN ADVENTURE JUST GETTING THERE!
The reward that awaited.


The riders gathered and had breakfast.




We separated into groups and headed out on different routes, destined for the Hot Springs. Each rider with the goal of arriving at the waiting Pools, Kegs and Katering by Michele, Brian and Paul. There were enduros headed for Fandango Canyon, adventure bikes rolling out to Sheep Rock and several riders that made Christmas Valley after lunch time, then slabbed it in to the Hot Springs.


Navigation was a snap, since I had gathered a bunch of good tracks with our Trailtech Voyager and had them uploaded to the Voyagers on GL’s KTM 500 EXC, Honda XR650R and my KTM 950 S&M.

The “Trailside Service” contest entries included a self extrication of a rider with broken foot(he made it to the hospital safe), a full caps off re-oiling of forks with ATF during lunch and two fuel systems reworks, one with plugged jet and the other a plugged filter.

The dust pits were axle deep in some parts and the sand was really thick on the red roads. Those kinds of conditions were new to many of the riders and it took lots of extra focus, just to keep the front tire under the bike.

There were around ten flat tires, four of them on the rear of Darryl at Cyclopsadventuresports.com’s KTM 990 Tire Burner, another was in Lendon at Seat Concepts.com group. Good thing Darryl understands LC8′s appetite for tasty tires. Big Bertha(my KTM 950S&M) chewed right through the gristle and steel, leaving nothing but bones. Lucky it still held air and got me back into the driveway…


I’ll get another post up with pics of dinner and the campfire, as I can find them.
Thanks to everyone who joined us on this ride, to the folks at Summer Lake Hot Springs for hosting us and the cafes and stations in Christmas Valley, Paisley and Silver Lake for feeding us or filling our fuel tanks, for the next leg. An especially big thanks to the Katering Krew for feeding us tasty Tri-Tip-Tacos for dinner!
As Harold travels in Norway, our thoughts are with him and his family, since they were evacuated from their home due to the Wild Fire in Bend. This is a phone pic of the fire was taken by my friend, Danny Funderburg, Sunday night.

GIANT LOOP RIDER: HAROLD ARRIVES IN NORWAY, CLIMBS ON HONDA AFRICA TWIN, GOES CAMPING
Giant Loop owner, Harold, has returned to his ancestral home of Norway, for some motorbiking and family vacation. Harold took a Fandango Tank bag Pro and Great Basin Saddlebag for this fly and ride.
The first pictures are coming in, so I share them here.
His motorbike guide is Elving Stolli, who has loaned Harold a Honda Africa Twin.

Day 1:

Trontoppen- Norway’s second highest road

Packing up camp

I'm looking for a Diablo tank bang for my KTM 690 and I'm wondering what the difference is between the 2014 model and older ones? I think my local dealer is only carrying older stock..

New design feature of the Standard Diablo Tank Bag has two side zippers on the base for mounting to the harness, instead of one zipper that wraps around the base.



The Diablo Tank Bag Pro has several more features than the standard, which include top access map pocket, electronics pass through, outside mesh pocket and the center divider can move the full length of the bag.

I really love my GL Siskiyou panniers. They worked perfect for the trip down to Summer lake. No more worrying about breaking my ankles with hard bags.
Great job guys, just the ticket for this aggressive rider who needs to carry way to much stuff

Thanks Darryl.
Getting an endorsement from the acting president of "mad LC8 riders club" is a big deal! Never seen so much rock lifted by a tire before, until you ripped through the section I was parked beside... It wasn't like the dust a "normal bike" shoots of its tire, cause the raining stones fell for several seconds, after you passed!

GL rider Tiffany Coates (inmate tiffany) is riding Royal Enfield in India now with Siskiyou Panniers and Pannier Pockets.



Quoted from her FB post: "First day on the road and I'm heading up into the Himalayas - loving it"
She must be wearing one of those mystical invisible helmets for that section...
