    We’re not going to continue stocking tools, camping gear, etc. in 2020, so we can focus our precious limited resources on Giant Loop products. What’s in stock now is what’s available - looks like we have some 19” and 17” remaining at 20% off: https://www.giantloopmoto.com/product/irc-tubes/

    That is a really good idea! - I'd not thought of vacuum packing tubes, but what a great way to help condense and protect them.

    YELLOW is gone, and the last of the WHITE Coyote Saddlebags will be gone soon! Get one before they go away: https://www.giantloopmoto.com/product/coyote-saddlebag-2/

    For 2020, we're focusing on our three top selling colors: Black, Orange, Gray. But we love the WHITE - it looks sharp on almost every color bike, and it reflects more of the sun's heat in the summertime.

    Who’s got big riding plans for 2020? Let’s hear about your adventures with GL gear!

    Looks like I’m headed to the Himalaya to ride a Royal Enfield to Everest base camp with a group of Aussies this fall!

    Last of the YELLOW and WHITE Fandango Tank Bags are still available! https://www.giantloopmoto.com/product/fandango-tank-bag-3/

    For 2020, we're dropping these colorways from our line, so this is the last production - then they're gone. Quickest, easiest access to fuel fill of any motorcycle tank bag - and because we're riders ourselves, our designs don't intrude into the rider zone. No metal buckles in the knees. Bag doesn't extend into crotch when standing on the pegs or sitting down. And it's not trying to be everything to everyone - simply performs its mission and does it extremely well. No fiddly, fussy whatnots and do-dads. That's just not our style. Go light. Go fast. Go far.

    I agree - the white looks great!

    ...and also works well with pretty much every side panel on enduro/dual-sport bikes too of course!

    i tried vacuum sealing tubes a few years back with no success, seems they just became un sealed in short order.

    Hey GL,
    Ever since selling my 500 exc I miss having a spot on my beta to have a grab handle but I have one of your heat shields. So got to thinking....
    https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/parts/enduro-engineering-ktm-grab-handle-p

    how hard would it be to make a heat shield that incorporates a build in grab handle like above? Might need to form it into a "u" shape to wrap around the muffler. I just know several times now I went to grab that spot while riding and had one of those "oh shit" moments.

    Our Lift Strap can probably mount on the Beta?

    Yup got that one already in front. I was hoping for something on the rear area specifically around the muffler as that always seems to have the best leverage. Plus I ride nasty crap that often requires
    Heaving the bike out of tuff spots haha

    The mufflers generate such high temps that it would be difficult to attach anything that wouldn't either melt or transfer the heat. Plus, exhaust systems aren't design to bear the weight of lifting the bike - I would be concerned about overloading the exhaust hangers trying to lift the bike by the exhaust. I'll try to look at a Beta more closely next time I have the chance. Post up photos of the tail of your bike!

    Our production manager just told me that January 24 will have to be our cutoff date for fast shipping pre-orders of our new Buckin' Roll Tank Bag. To get yours a month early - and save 20% - order by Friday!

    https://www.giantloopmoto.com/product/buckin-roll-tank-bag-2020/

    In our testing, all reports are 1+ on the new Buckin' Roll Tank Bag. Never in the way, waterproof, easy fuel access - it's the tank bag for people who think they don't like tank bags!
