2013 EICMA - European Women's Enduro Champ

We met a lot of super cool people at EICMA this year, including Cristina Morrocco, European Women's Enduro Champion and Team Italy rider at the ISDE world championship! In this photo with Morrocco is Marco Grangetto, team mechanic for Boano Racing. Grangetto worked in Giant Loop's stand on the consumer days at EICMA, the best Italian ambassador possible.

Cristina Morrocco in action on her 125!

I finally got my camera uploaded to my online host, so more pics will be coming! Looks like HOC got one posted of the Italian Moto-starlet, Cristina Morrocco, that kept us company. It was sooo cool, getting to know Cristina and Marco! They are both racers at heart and it showed, especially in the professional way Marco worked the booth.

Edit to add: Pic of Beta Rally that Marco built for 2014 Dakar!!

As the season winds into the cold months, I am noticing the distinct lack of heated grips on my bike. I am counting my lucky stars to have Bushwackers Hand Guard flairs to slap on for the cold stretches. My first real experience with them was a few weeks ago, when I took a run over the mountains, to McCall, ID. It was a relief to discover that they ride solid at speed and kept the wind off my hands. They were quick on and off, once I got the straps threaded through the slots that best fit to my controls.

Ride while you can!

Are there owners of the new Rogue or Tillamook drybags with pics of the bag mounted on their bike? I am curious to see what riders are doing with them and how the bags are working. I have enjoyed the pics coming in from Tiffany Coates, on her Madagascar ride, but havent seen many of other bikes/riders with the new drybag mounted and in action.



Post 'em if ya got 'em!

Token showroom shot...

Now the cats are getting out of the 2014 bag!!!

The new Buckin Roll sits very close to the bike and doesn't impede rider movement.

Enduro360.com has a review of the Bushwackers hand guards. He also wrote about the Pronghorn Straps in a previous review. Thanks Chilly, for the support!

Let me answer on Snowhawk Jockey's behalf: He started working with Giant Loop this year as a contractor supporting our sales and marketing efforts. Now, he's about to become our fifth employee, wearing a bunch of hats like the rest of us, including quality control, shipping/receiving, marketing, sales, customer service, wrenching on GL bikes, testing products, participating in new product development, etc., etc. He brings a bunch of motorcycle retail and outdoor industry sales experience - as well as a passion for performance motorcycles.

And he's about to get married this weekend! Congratulations Mr. Snowhawk Jockey!
