Latest News! Once again, for the 16th year, Mike & Sue were off on an extensive motorcycle trip! This time they were riding in September of 2010 in Europe with friends. Only for a month this time so hardly what I call extensive but for most people who for some reason think that testing gear a few hundred miles from home, in a place where their insurance works if they break down and they get to speak the same language as the locals, I suppose to them a month would be more than extensive. For us it one of the shortest trips we have done to test new product ideas. Of course since most people copy our designs it does amaze me why they would bother testing it since we do already.
Extensive trip to us is the three months from San Diego to El Salvador. Of course some of that was spent in Ocosingo Chiapas, the center of the Zapatista rebellion, dealing with a bike problem. Extensive trip means almost running out of gas in the mountains of Morocco, dodging the drug sellers. Then there is riding through Romania after the wall came down where the bread is grey or Albania ten years after the wall came down and seeing just how things have improved. Or going to a biker rally on an island off Croatia a year after the war ended to see bikers from Bosnia mixing with bikers from Croatia. Extensive trip means to us getting pulled over in Tunisia by a motorcycle cop that just wants to talk bikes. Extensive means riding to the ruins of Tikal and through the cloud forest in Guatemala.
Extensive trips to us means testing your gear in places where if they fail you are in deep trouble. Of course going over the Siskiyou in a snow storm can be a place where you need our headed gear too, but for testing, being in an ice storm in the mountains of Spain is going to put the gear to a better test.
You can check out some of our trips on the following pages but bottom line, think about who makes your gear and how it is tested. I would love to have one of those nice adjustable wind screens with vents that redirect the heat from the engine on my body. But that is not going to tell me what I need to know, and while traveling two up for months at a time is hard, it tells us about the needs of the passenger. And always on one of our GTS1000s. 15 years old but we still love them.
So check out the following sites for some stories and photos and remember you are not just dealing with the inventors and developers of most of what is standard in this industry, you are dealing with real bikers that started out biking over 40 years ago. www.thejourneyisthegoal.com/trips or http://s-ebers.blogspot.com/
