We hope KLIM gets their act together and come out with a DUAL SPORT suit in female sizing that is the same quality as the guys in the very near future. We LOVE KLIM but it seems other companies such as BMW are a head of the game treating grrls as equals when it comes to the ADV suits.
Yamaha Super Ténéré XT1200Z Bike Build – Touratech is celebrating the arrival of Yamaha’s new Super Ténéré XT1200Z by building a project bike. We’ve added ergonomic upgrades, bolted on the essential protection items and given it luggage solutions that enable the bike to hit the road for extended travel. Follow
A couple of months ago we sent our jackets back to KLIM USA to have the collars shortened on our Latitude jackets. This is a mod that anyone can get presently as there have been quite a few complaints about the stiffness and height. After this trip Cheryl has decided to return to her Traverse suit and has asked me to put her suit up for sale. I am still up in the air about it.
We have worn this suit for over 6500 KM now.
- Nov 2012 UPDATE: We both SOLD our Latitudes. In the end, nice looking suit but the stiffness of the Cordura was over kill for us. We are both back to wearing our Traverse and I have to admit the fit of the Traverse pants especially WINS!
Cheryl & I Love dry bags and we use Wolfman luggage right now.
It’s nice to see other companies getting into the market to show off their gear. Our Dry bags are essential for touring and we would never go away without at least one large one. We stow our clothes in there, things that we try not to get dirty while traveling. Here GIVI gives it a try as well. Anyone have one of these?
Sorry that the video is a bit dark and no zooms. Cheryl is away and I promise our second impressions video will be better done. Hope this video will provide you all with some useful info and isn’t too painful to watch.
UPDATE: We sold both suits. Just turned out they were not fir us, too stiff.

Tough and Rugged Point-and-Shoot Cameras

We recently bought a Panasonic Ts3 camera after learning on our summer 2011 Adventure that sometime regular cameras might not be durable enough for on the fly one handed shots. I eventually started to take pictures while riding and really proved to be beneficial because Cheryl hates stopping. There was so much scenery that I had to get as many pics I could without pissing off Cheryl…I mean that in a loving way.
Anyway, my Panasonic TH25 died on route, got a new replacement from London Drugs when I got home….warranty thing even though I came clean as to what I put the camera through. I will be selling that one and recently been able to try the Panasonic TS3 in the rain on a trip to Washington State. See Gerbing’s Trip Nov. 2011 & Practice TS3 Pics for sample pics from the new camera.
I am very pleased with the quality of pictures and hope over the year this will survive whatever climate we ride in. I hope this review of all the cameras out there that I consider to be motorcycle friendly helps anyone who might be in the market for a waterproof point & shoot! Continue reading
