I’ve always wanted to make a Holiday Gift Guide here on IAATB, and never seem to have the time to do it right. So this year, I am going to do it half-assed, but do it nonetheless. Between now and the last night that you can reasonably expect something to arrive in time for Christmas whilst paying through the nose for overnight shipping, I’ll give you a few suggestions. First up is the Giant Loop Zigzag Handlebar Bag. It’s made with the super heavy tarp material that Giant Loop uses in their other waterproof bags like the Great Basin saddlebag, and a hook-and-loop mounting system that should fit just about any bike. I bought one for myself because I’ve been looking for a small “glove compartment” type bag for my BMW F800 GS, since I’m really getting sick of the whole big tank bag thing. This is big enough to hold some documents like your registration papers, maybe some keys, and maybe a pair of shades. I’ll be honest, when I got it, I thought it was going to be a little bigger. Maybe that is the point? I haven’t ridden with it yet, but I can speak to the quality of Giant Loop from previous experiences. There is a nice little zippered mesh pocket on the inside, a nice touch. For $50 plus shipping, this would put a smile on any Motard’s face. I consider it a Grade A stocking stuffer.
