    Banditmanuk 2 months ago One thing for sure, you don't need a BMW GS or bespoke touring machine to go touring. Use what you've got, make sure its serviced and go for it. All these tour companies will take a big wedge of cash off you to organise your trip. It's more fun and more satisfying doing your own thing, ride at a pace you are happy with, don't try and do huge daily miles. Enjoy👍

  • Adam Efrat
    Adam Efrat 2 months ago Most important tip for touring in my experience..... 100% Merino wool base layers, I lived in mine for 8 weeks under my riding gear and you can do away with clothes basically. Perfect for cold weather riding from the north of Canada all the way down to the heat of Baja. I highly recommend Icebreaker but any 100% brand will do, no smell no moisture retention... I won’t leave home without it.

    Dave D 2 months ago May need to update this soon re Europe unfortunately (and I mean that from a riders point of view, not a judgement of whatever way anyone voted) Check emission rules if visiting cities as these can vary from city to city (as well as times of the day and days of the week) and.... think what you are doing when turning left out of a junction! Sounds stupid, but that one little lapse of concentration can easily have you pulling out onto the wrong side of the road. Done it myself a couple of times and seen others do it as well.
