Tolga Basol continues to adventure across Russia on his KTM 1190 Adventure R. He had a stop over in Omsk, where the guys at KTM Omsk worked to replace Tolga’s front hub and he got to hang out with the Siberian Bears motorcycle club.



I don’t know the particulars, but the job got done, thanks to KTM Russia and KTM Omsk, so Tolga had the time to share pics of his tools and how he carries them. I share this posting from his FB page.
Tubes and first aid kit in the Pannier Pockets.





Tire repair tools bagged and mounted to his pannier frame. His wrenches are in a tool roll under his seat.

So you are saying
They can be mounted without the passenger seat and can be adjusted to fit, or set, in the same position as with the seat.

I have been digging through our photo archive trying to find the shots of Jeff Camacho running the Siskiyou Panniers on a spring 2013 Baja Trip. He had them mounted on the bike with no passenger seat. Wish I could locate the great pics he shared with us...
Looks like his photobucket account isn't active anymore.

Just got this press Release from Baja Rally organizer Scotty Bloom!
Fuel range Extended for Baja Rally

Subject: IMPORTANT NOTE: FUEL RANGE EXTENDED
Riders and Crews-
Due to at least one lengthy route on the BAJA RALLY 2.0, we will have a 205 mile (329km) special where we may not have a gas stop set up between 2 points 147mi apart. Its a situation we cant be sure of solving.
Therefore, the minimum gas range for riders and bikes has been raised to 150 miles indefinitely. Some riders will need to carry extra fuel on certain stages.
Saddlebags
The Giant Loop Mojavi Bag has been used widely in rallies all over the world for riders to carry water, tools and gas. These are lightweight easy to use saddle bags to carry up to a gallon of liquids. Riders are using TouraTech’s 2 liter bottles on each side of the Mojavi in some cases.


I realize this is going to effect a few riders right off the bat and wanted to make sure everyone has enough notice to respond to the changes.
I welcome your phone call or email reply to discuss this further if needed or answer any questions you might have. Don’t hesitate to call 858 342-8222.
Muchas Gracias
Scotty

GIANT LOOP RIDER: APPLE JAM AND I MAKE GPX TRACKS IN HOOD RIVER COUNTY FOR RALLY IN THE GORGE


Getting the Giant Loop Dual Sport route sorted for Rally in the Gorge took the help of inmate, Apple Jam. An avid KTM 990 Adventure rider, he has rolled every piece of two track in the area and knows how to link up some excitement for our ride.
Arriving in Parkdale at 3pm, I was anxious to get on the motos and get some tracks tucked into the bike’s Trail Tech Voyager. The weather was perfect, maybe a bit hot, and the air was clear. I was staging at Apple Jam’s and he was gracious enough to have me camp there. His KTM was getting fork service work so I brought the Honda XR650R and KTM 500EXC, for us to ride. He hadn’t ridden a new EXC so I rode the Honda and he happily climbed onto the KTM. I hadn’t been riding on this side of Mt Hood, so I was looking forward to following Apple Jam’s experienced lead and getting a taste of what kind of terrain was available. Needless to say, there was not a drop of disappointment until 9:08 pm and we hit the Sawtooth Roadhouse after closing, missing dinner. We made up for it with a drink or two when we finally made it back home…

There were several huge vista views.

We were headed right over yonder.

Had a few rocks to roll over, on the way.

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.

Olaf,

Im trying to find a GO LIGHT. GO FAST. GO FAR. sticker or two. Can you point me in the right direction. Are they available to buy on the Giant Loop website?

Thanks, Ed

Latest pics from Tolga Basol, who is rolling through Altai, Russia. Giant Loop Pronghorn straps easily subdued the replacement TKC-80s.

I melted a strap on my Mojavi and sent an email into the contact email on the Giant Loop website a week ago with no reply. I don't need to buy a complete repair kit but rather a few feet of strap. Is this available for purchase from GL?

John, Thanks for the heads up and sorry that I missed your contact! I am looking in that email account and see that your message was missed, along with a couple of others from the holiday weekend. You now have a reply.

Here is a pic of the right side strapping position that I see the Husaberg 70* riders using:

Thank you Justin. Once I get my strap and get my bag repaired I will tie it down like the picture shows.

GIANT LOOP TECH TIP: SADDLEBAG STRAPPING LOCATION FOR NEWER KTM’S

As I rig up and ride different Giant Loop packing systems on our 2012 KTM 500 EXC, I am always looking for a different solutions to strapping the right side. There is a factory heat shield covering the subframe, at the point I like to thread the strap mount. There are several types of bolt-on hardware solutions submitted by riders, to handle mounting the strap on that side, but I was looking for a simpler method. Now, my method isn’t perfect and it does require an 8mm wrench for the initial install, but I didn’t have to add any parts to the bike!
This has been tested for about 100 miles of rough and there appears to be no ill effects to the bodywork, other than the usual dusty strap wear.
Method:
Loosen the lower mounting bolt on the orange side panel, at the bottom of the subframe


Thread the mounting strap through the molded slot in the white side panel


Wrap it around the subframe and pull to the front of the orange side panel


Carefully replace the orange panel’s tab, into its slot in the white panel, so the tab and strap can both fit smoothly


Replace the bolt/bushing, finish threading the strap through the buckle and tension, stowing the strap end so it doesn’t catch on something or burn
