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 new Triumph Tiger 1200 XCA and the Triumph Tiger 800 XCA and have renewed our relationship with Triumph for 2018, 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!
The new Tiger 800s deliver a major update to off-road capability and all-road, all-day comfort. With a more responsive Triple engine, shorter ratio first gear for improved off-road traction and all-road acceleration, up to six riding modes including new ’Off-Road Pro’ on XC models, enhanced ergonomics and a new five-position screen, they’re built for maximum adventure, every day.
The new Tiger 1200 range is better in every way. Significantly lighter, by up to 11kg, and with 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!
Exclusive tyre provider for all our adventure bikesRead More
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. When we’re in Europe, it’s the ContiTrailAttack 2.

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.
