After I broke my ankle in December in a test in Spain (Weber B for connoisseurs,), it will be better again. I was allowed to spend a few days in the University Hospital in Reus, where my leg was again screwed together super. The ADAC took me home by plane and also returned my Landy Defender. Everyone helped me a lot and did a great job. Thanks again to Sandra and Bernd, who organized everything and took my moped with me.Continue reading
What do you keep in mind about your travels? Some do remember odours – especially people traveling to India. Some remember people they met. Some remember food they faced in other cultures.
What’s going on right now…
Sending a motorcycle from Germany to South Africa is not daily business for us. After packaging and paper work nothing else then waiting can be done. So it’s quite interesting to know where on earth the motorcycles are.
Saturday was the time. The bikes have to be prepared and packed in the wooden boxes. Thanks to our partner Georg Schrepfer Verpackungen, we are prepared, have the right kind of wood and a construction guide what to do.
These guys have a similar approach! Good listing with Equipment recommendation.
After the luggage racks available on the market did not meet our requirements, two of us mechanical engineers, we quickly set up our own 3D construction. The idea is to give our luggage systems a really stable fixation not o have any movement of the luggage while riding offroad. KTK GmbH has the abbility and machine park not only to do the software planing also to produce the first prototypes of the new system.
Here is one packing list with manufacturer, types and weight. If you need more information’s or have questions about special items feel free to comment.
If you can not think of anything else: Take a kitchen scale and determine the weight of your luggage. That happened to me yesterday night.
Everyone knows the lighter the bike is, the better off-road performance it gets. As we were not sure how much over all weight of luggage and equipment we will get, i took some time the kitchen scale and went to my gear up room.
