Gets me thinking about riding something less than 400 pounds and dreaming of putting a WR250R/X in the stable...

GIANT LOOP RIDER: TOLGA’S “RIDE MUST GO ON”, ALL ‘ROUND THE WORLD

Ride Must Go On

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.


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.

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.



Follow my page to track my journey real-time on the map & to check my photos & videos that i will try to share along the way.

Thanks for the great post, Tolga!

ADVMOTO Magazine has a big article where Scotty Bloom, producer of the Baja Rally, wrote about the "Ultimate Riding Machine", a BMW F800GSA setup with a long list of off road must haves!

He had this to say about Giant Loop's packing system:

"The Giant Loop Siskiyou soft luggage solution has a few benefits over its hard box counterparts, namely weight and durability, and it passed the waterproof test on our first day in the field. The Siskiyou package comes with a pair of waterproof liners, keeping out even more rain..."

GIANT LOOP EVENT: TOURATECH RALLY SERVED UP LAST WEEKEND’S ADVENTURES
This years Touratech Rally had the added element of an Overland section, so the attendance was rumored to hit 1000!

There were many rides on the schedule, including a Dirty Girls training session from Tracy Jeffries.



Eric Wright, from 405Motosales, and I-90 Motorsports were headlining the Giant Loop display. Eric showed Bell and Giant Loop, while our friends at I-90 Motorsports handled the retail transactions.

LC8 pilot Darryl@Cyclopsadventuresports.com, getting the right angle on his nose gear for an easy landing, at the Touratech Rally.






He was caught conducting tire operated trail clearing and had to wheel pack the flowery foot trail as a consequence.








Thanks to Clif Brown and Michael Brown for sharing the pics!

Got a cool pic of Vic while he was in Death Valley riding his DRZ400 with a Great Basin Saddlebag. Thanks for the pic and story.

He said, "Purchased your saddle bag at the BMW rally in Salem last summer. Just finished a four day 430 mile off road loop through Death Valley. Bag is great and stayed firmly attached all through the rough stuff. Wish I could say the same thing for me. Fitment is great and the others on the ride will be purchasing them before our next adventure. Regards, Vic."

Giant Loop Mission

Whaddya think?



Maybe our mission is bigger…

We can change the world
We can change motorcycling
We can make the tools of discovery
Two wheels make the world go round

We are modem explorers
We are emissaries of peace
We unite the world
We make life richer and better for all of those around us, with each interaction

We do not make baggage
We make tools for travel and exploration on two wheels
It’s more than recreation
Travel and exploration - even if it’s one’s own “backyard”

We open new worlds of options
How? With intuitive, functional, durable products that require little more than “plug-and-play” enjoyment

We free people from their metal cages and work-a-day lives
We build friendships
We improve marriages, relationships and family life

We can teach a new generation that the world is connected as never before
The common person can do uncommon things

We are nomadic bands of global misfits
We don’t want to fit in, we want to break out

Will you ride with us?

GO LIGHT. GO FAST. GO FAR.

Justin, will the Siskiyou panniers fit a GS with the passenger seat removed or will they sit too low?

Thanks

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Independence day celebration!

The Siskiyou panniers can be fitted without the passenger seat.
Here is a blog post showing the bags fitted to one with the passenger seat. It also shows there is a bunch of adjustment in the center harness, to tighten up the bags to fit with no seat.

Snowhawk, do you know who in south-central or Southeast Pennsylvania has your products in stock to look at? The closest dealer listed on your site to me was Velocity Cycles in Mechanicsburg, PA, but they kind of gave me a strange look when I asked about Giant Loop products. I'm thinking about a fandango or diablo but would like to see it in person. I'm guessing Revzilla maybe but I hate cities.

Thanks for any information you might have.

Velocity is a special order only dealer, they don't stock much. The guys at Matto Cycle, Pottsville are checking stock to see if they have both tank bags. I will know in a bit and post up!

Thanks for check-in!
