10th Annual Giant Loop Ride Trip Report by Next Adventure

Trip Report by Ken Picard

Super cool blog post from Ken Picard at the great Next Adventure titled  “Trip Report: 10th Annual Giant Loop Ride at Crystal Crane Hot Springs”

“Given that most moto events have been canceled or pushed back, the GL ride was the only game in town and holy hell was it ever a success. Ended up being around 350 folks showing up to get their ride/party on. It was soooooo nice to see that many folks, and their FACES, after the past year-plus of Masklife. Ended up feeling like a reunion, with many familiar faces in the crowd, and met many more excellent humans throughout the weekend…

This was also the only event in Oregon where Harley Davidson had the new Pan America for demo. They brought 14 of them and everyone I talked with who rode one really dug them. Looks like they did their homework and really did a great job. I almost didn’t go not having a bike, thought I’d get bummed seeing all the bikes but not being able to ride myself. I was gloriously wrong. Didn’t swing a leg over a bike the whole weekend and still had an amazing time.”Ken Picard, Next Adventure (JUN 18, 2021)

Thanks for the killer post Ken, and thank you to everyone who joined us — epic times were had!

The 2021 Ride was a huge success. A special tip of the hat to Harley-Davidson for making the GL Ride the first adventure event on the Pan America Demo Tour! Look for coverage of the Annual Ride throughout our blog, including videos from the event, with more to follow. And if you haven’t made it to one of our annual GL Rides yet, save the date. We’ll be back again in 2022…
