EQUIPMENT REQUIRED DRIVER
The best way not to have any problems, is to avoid them!
It is a fundamental proverb in life but also in adventure journeys. With common sense we then suggest :
- 1 road or enduro helmet but no bowl helmet !
- 1 motorcycle jacket with elbows, shoulders, back protections.
- 1 motorcycle pants with hip and knee protections
- 1 pair of solid motorcycle boots such as APACHE Revit or GRAVEL BMW
- 1 pair of motorcycle gloves with protection on top.
- 1 pair sunglasses and a scarf (or bandana tube).
(1 camel bag is a good idea to travel some hot spots)
T3 will provide an official bag 80 liters sealed travel but remember that most of the participants in our trips have the same thought after their journey : "I had too many things in my bag I used only half of it ... "
Following BMW Motorrad-Models are available for this Tour:
