KTM Basel AG helped set us up with the prototype Defy Series Quest Kit for our KTM 690 Enduro R's for our RTW trip and have helped support us throughout all our times of needs! Be it picking us up when we've broken down, listening to our bikes over the phone whilst we're stranded in the middle of no where, advising us and supporting us all along the way, they've been our rocks! The time they dedicate to their products and customers is insane, they're truly a superb team and produce some of the highest quality products we have ever encountered. As designers ourselves we are *very* fussy when it comes to product quality and we can safely say that we are supremely proud owners of their kits, they're simply stunning. Not only that, they've turned out to be true friends to us as well and we always look forward to mulling over motorbiking stories with a whiskey or three with them! Thanks guys, you're all mega :)
Enduristan have offered us the most perfect luggage solution for our RTW motorcycle trip! With Monsoon Enduro Saddle Bags, Sandstorm 2S tank bags and Tornado Waterproof Packsacks we have over 200l worth of packing space between us, all completely waterproof, easy to mount and of fantastic quality. For more information please check out our Gear pages in the next few days for reviews, photos and videos! Thanks to David at Enduristan for his ongoing support and advice - absolutely top fella and friend!
After doing extensive research, we knew the Rukka Armas and Armiina Suits would be the most perfect travel gear we could ever wish for! With features like the Armacore technology, thermal regulation and so much more it is quite simply the best all rounder suit out there.
So to have the support and generosity from one of the leading brands in Motorbike gear… we are naturally over the moon! We would like to say a big thank you to Rukka – please take a look at more details on the suits here.
With Motorcycle safety paramount for our trip, we’re really incredibly lucky to have X-Lite supporting us with their superb X-551 helmets. Italian brand Nolan manufactures the X-Lite line of motorcycle helmets, and given their enormous respect in the industry we were excited to have them on board. We had heard about the helmets with their unique composite fiber shell, “Unitherm Light Racing Comfort” lining and internal sunvisor, this ticked all the right boxes for a Long trip like ours. Even with all the added extras it is still rather light and weighs in at only 3.4 pounds. Once again a big thanks to X-lite.
Smart Motorcycle Training, Swansea are the loveliest bunchof trainers out there! Ianto and Chris made us feel like old friends... considering with us they have had to adapt to a long term rider and a novice, their encouragement and approach to training is fantastically balanced and perfect. We couldn't sing their praises enough! Thank you guys for all your help and support and can't wait to catch you soon!
A superb luggage solution to keep our specialised kit protected, waterproof and secure, Metal Mule Ltd helped us out with their UTE Pannier System for Clare's bike. It's taken *many* a fall, scraping, drowning, dust, sand, snow, sleet, ice and yet remains completely intact, waterproofed and functional! Slim and light in comparison to other makes out there, they're worth every penny! Thanks again to Paul and the team for helping us out.
