Extreme adventure test: Part one

While for many, adventure bikes represent comfort, on road presence and load carrying abilities -- these clearly shouldn't be their only qualities. The real design brief for an adventure bike is that it will take you and your kit wherever you want to go whether that's touring Scotland or navigating your way across the Sahara desert. Unlike the majority of tests in the media that focus primarily on road riding with some token dirt action, this test is different. The 400 miles of road work covered on this test was purely to get to the off road trails we wanted. This is a test to determine which of the four bikes you'd want to take into the depths of Africa and which would be better off sticking to well surfaced tarmacked roads.

Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route - Documentary Trailer
http://ridebdr.com/COBDR The guys at Backcountry Discovery Routes have just released a trailer for their upcoming documentary about their expedition across the state of Colorado. Tom Myers and Paul Guillien of Touratech-USA have teamed up with Rob Watt, Bryce Stevens, Justin Bradshaw and Sterling Noren to create a 501c(4) non-profit organization dedicated to establishing and preserving off-pavement riding opportunities for dual-sport and adventure-touring motorcycles. One of the primary goals of the Backcountry Discovery Routes organization is to create routes that cross entire states using primarily unpaved roads across public lands and mountain ranges. In the last few years, the team has created both the Washington and Utah Backcountry Discovery Routes, and has just completed a route for the state of Colorado, which will be released to the public with free GPS tracks in early 2013. "I'm really excited to release the latest installment in the Backcountry Discovery Route series, the COBDR. It was a wonderful motorcycle expedition and I think we've created a classic adventure ride. Viewers of the film will get a taste of what awaits them in Colorado -- spectacular scenery, historic mining towns and exhilarating adventure riding on what is arguably one of the best rides in the country." -- Sterling Noren, Producer, Noren Films The expedition team included Backcountry Discovery Route board members named above, as well as journalist Tony Huegel, photographer Jonathan Beck and KLIM's Jayson Wickencamp. The team filmed the first expedition of the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route (COBDR) in August of this year and has since released this trailer for a forthcoming film, produced by Noren Films, which will highlight their 700+ mile off-road expedition across the state of Colorado.

Touratech's Essential Accessories - KTM 1190 Adventure
Electric anticipation surrounds the shipment of KTM's new 1190 Adventure R. Replacing the tried-and-true 990 Adventure, KTM's new 1190 is a 150hp, gravel-eating adventure motorcycle offering precise handling, class-leading braking, and a suspension capable of handling even the most extreme off-road conditions. What the new KTM 1190 Adventure R lacks, however, are the accessories that will allow it to safely venture long distances carrying everything you'll need along the way. So, when a new 1190 Adventure R arrived at Touratech-USA, the team was eager to install an assortment of the most important protective parts including their new Expedition Skid Plate and Quick Release Headlight Guard. The Touratech team also equipped the KTM with a set of Zega Pro panniers, a Zega Pro Topcase, Expandable Touring Tankbag, Large Sidestand Foot and a GPS Mounting Bracket.
