Aventuro Carbon Helmet: Update

Last week Touratech unveiled the new Aventuro Carbon Helmet at Intermot. Since then, the excitement has been building and the questions have been streaming in. Riders across the UK want to know more about this tough, comfortable and ultra-light piece of equipment and they want to know when they can get it.

Want a 2014 GS Trophy Bike?

Since last month’s 2014 BMW Motorrad GS Trophy in the Candadian Rockies, one question that the Touratech customer service team has been asked a lot is, “What Touratech parts were on the Water-Cooled R1200GS’s in the race?“ The graphic below answers all of those questions.

NEW – The Ultra-Light Aventuro Carbon Helmet

While there is no shortage of helmet options in the market, there are surprisingly few good choices for the ADV touring crowd. Some of the most popular ADV models are quite heavy, have excessive wind noise and are limited to just one configuration. Because of these limitations, Touratech has set out to make the ultimate helmet for adventure touring.

Touratech Unveils a Cool Concept & Awesome Essentials at Intermot

Touratech developers have been playing in the snow lately. This concept project was unveiled today at Intermot in Cologne, Germany.

Braced For Adventure!

 

The factory lower crash bars for the R1200GS and Adventure model look great, but lack a critical rear brace. If your motorcycle takes a hard fall, the factory bars can fold right into the engine, causing damage to the valve cover and the cylinder of your bike.

Touratech designed a solution to this problem with our Stainless Steel Reinforcing Strut. This sturdy set of reinforcement bars, brace the rear of the factory BMW crash bars directly to the frame of the motorcycle, allowing you to ride those rough off-road tracks with piece of mind.

The Touratech Stainless Steel Reinforcement Strut is a perfect match for the OEM bars and compliment their design handsomely. Made of strong, 25mm electro-polished stainless steel tubing, they’re easy to install, and come complete with all the necessary mounting hardware.

Journey to Mongolia – Week 4

journey_to_mongolia_week4_2DAY 24: Camping to Shymkent

Some days start well and die and others never really ignite. Today exploded with sorts of intense moments. First the agreed passage across the two border controls south of Tashkent failed to be operational. Gagarin whilst written up as a going concern did not look as if it had been open for years. Grass was growing through cracks in the concrete blocks. There was quietness in the air and I wanted to stay. It had in the air the sound of an album I enjoyed as a kid, Edgar Froese’s Malaysia in Epsilon Pale. It was the sound of an empty station, somewhere almost where very few go visit. Two guards appeared but the barrier had rusted and was locked. So I turned round and headed further north trying to find a way out of Uzbekistan.

Day 19: Eshqabad to Quchon

After buying an armful of bread, jam and cartons of fruit juices for breakfast we left our community accommodation and wound around a couple of roundabouts painted in white and sky blue. The sun was already mid way up and the wind across the plain was from the west and blowing so strongly we were all riding on the left edge of our tyres. A weather front lay to the east, rolling down the mountains covering us with specs of rain.
