The latest thing that you
really need from our
friends at Giant
for an extensive line of off road luggage and accessories for
adventure motorcycles and other OHVs, is their new 1 gallon (3.8 liter)
collapsible fuel transport bladder. Those of you who ride dirt bikes,
snow bikes, etc. to the edge of desert tank range (and beyond) will
find this little ditty to be the best thing since the invention of
sliced whole-wheat bread. The
GL Fuel Bag consists of a flexible welded plastic bladder sewn into a
ballistic nylon bag festooned with daisy chain anchor points and
I’ve used a variety of flexible fuel bladders and found that a gallon capacity to be a great compromise between enough and too much strapped on spare fuel. Two GL bags would do you just right in most circumstances on the Tour of Idaho.
Each GL Gas Bag is individually tested and made in the USA. I purchased this bag from Giant Loop to review for the Tour of Idaho community. It’s well-designed, durable (so far) and at $119 a relative bargain. Highly recommend for anyone who needs a flexible storage solution for spare fuel.
