Giant Loop Ride Only Oregon Event on Harley-Davidson Pan America Adventure Motorcycle Demo Tour

(BEND, OR) Adventure proof packing systems and gear innovator Giant Loop’s annual dual sport and adventure motorcycle rally has been added to the Harley-Davidson Pan America Adventure Motorcycle Demo Tour. The 10th Annual Giant Loop Ride is the only event in Oregon where motorcycle enthusiasts can get a first look at  – and a demo ride on – this much anticipated new Harley-Davidson.

Giant Loop hosts its annual rally at Crane Hot Springs in the remote high desert of eastern Oregon, June 4-6. Riders must register in advance at, but there is no additional charge for demo rides.

“In 2019, I first saw the new Harley-Davidson Pan America when it was previewed behind glass at the world’s largest motorcycle shows in Milan, Italy,” says Harold Olaf Cecil, Giant Loop owner/founder. “I cannot think of another new adventure motorcycle introduction in the past decade that’s generated this much buzz and interest. We are truly honored that Harley-Davidson selected our annual ride to be part of this historic roll out.”

“The spirt of adventure touring is one of endless possibilities and unrestrained freedom,” writes Harley-Davidson in its announcement. “From its inception more than a century ago, when many roads were little more than dirt trails, Harley-Davidson has stood for adventure. Riders will soon be able to experience that freedom first-hand as Harley-Davidson is proud to announce the Harley-Davidson Pan America Motorcycle Demo Tour.”
