Newsworthy is our weekly news update. Instead of killing your inboxes with re-hashed press releases or junk you don’t need, we’ll pull out a few interesting products, stories and other things we stumbled across from the week, write our thoughts on them and let you read the info for yourself.
Adventure bikes often suffer from the notion that they really aren’t great at gnarly off-road riding. At Brake, we challenge that notion. They’re the perfect bikes. They do everything well and it’s to that end that we introduce a crazy video from an awesome spaniard. The R 1200 GS is capable, the scenery is amazing, the riding even more so. Watch the video, you’ll love it.[vimeo 102808809 w=720]
British company Rally Raid products have got a history of taking bikes and building cool products to make them fit for the purpose they want. They’ve done it with 690 KTM’s aplenty and produced some impressive things. The newest project in their line-up is a snazzy looking Honda CB 500X Adv conversion kit. We think it looks cool as hell, especially for the smaller, less confident rider. The pictures have got us excited, so take a look at www.cb500xadventure.com
Yup. It’s exactly what is says on the tin. Youtube sensation Alex Cachon on the epic 360 around the world selfie travelled to Nepal, hired a Bajaj and wen’t riding. 3 minutes of video that makes us wanna ride our bikes. Hell YES.[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QiNNdYJ8DY&w=720]
Wait, you mean ADV clothing doesn’t have to be entirely function? I can wear t-shirts that look good too? Yes. yes you can. Step up the plate ADV Addicts, a clothing company producing some top-notch items of wear with and ADV theme. We can’t ask for much more, after all, some of love a flat peak cap. We can’t do much more than point you in their direction, so click and buy!
It seems the ADV community has it’s fair share of artistic members and that makes for damn pretty pictures. Let us introduce Tolga Basol, a Turkish designer who upped sticks and turned east. His website and blog are full of lovely design, epic photography and we promise, will make you wanna be right where he is. The video below is from Baja, Mexico.
