We’ve been working with Triumph since 1 January 2015 and have ridden their adventure bikes from London to Beijing, Alaska to Argentina, Kenya to South Africa and all around Europe too.  We ride the  Triumph Tiger 1200 XCA and the Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro and have renewed our relationship with Triumph for 2020, using bikes from the all New Tiger range.  If your preference is to ride a medium or large adventure bike, these bikes should be top of your list!

We think the new Tiger 900 is the most capable, agile and dynamic middleweight adventure motorcycles available. The larger capacity new Euro 5 compliant 900cc triple engine brings improved performance.  It’s lighter overall by up to 5kg and the centre of gravity has been revised, moving 40mm forwards and 20mm down for better weight distribution.  It’s more comfy too because of the narrower stand-over width and the handlebars are closer to the rider.

The Tiger 1200 range in 2018, had over 100 improvements including a major engine update, Triumph Shift-Assist, up to six riding modes (including the new ’Off-Road Pro’), adaptive cornering lighting, full-colour TFT instruments, LED-lighting, illuminated switchgear, keyless ignition, enhanced rider ergonomics and new premium styling, they’re all built for epic adventures – seems like they were built for GlobeBusters!

We’ve been riding Conti’s for many years, with the TKC80 always being our tyre of choice when we know we’ll be riding on dirt roads. Back in 2014, Conti brought out a more dual purpose tyre, the TKC70, which is a great overland tyre choice.  Why?  It has better longevity (we rode the whole of our Delhi to Bangkok Expedition of 7000 miles on one set of TKC 70s, and I reckon there was still another 1,000 to be had), and is designed to cope with the variety of terrain that you get on an extended tour or overland journey, which tends to be more tarmac, with sections of dirt, rather than pure off road.  The new TKC70 Rocks is a great tyre for more grip of gravel rides, but still performing well on the tarmac.  A great all round adventure tyre.

When we’re in Europe, it’s the ContiTrailAttack 3.

We have teamed up with Touratech UK to use their motorcycle gear and accessories.  We took the Adventuro Mod Helmet out on our Thailand Motorcycle Tour in January 2017 – we’re a big fan of flip-front helmets on expeditions. The Aventuro’s flip-front is easy to operate with one hand, using the button on the front. It’s also easy to raise and lower the sun shield on the move, using using left hand.  Touratech have billed the Aventuro Mod as the most versatile touring helmet on the market and it certainly lived up to our expectations.
