We’ve got the latest and greatest Adventure Touring motorcycles, and in order to ride them around a good portion of the western states we’ve equipped our riders with the newest touring motorcycle gear. We’re facing intense heat, long days and potential rain. Already we’ve been blistered, splattered and have 1200 miles of butt-numbing saddle time. Let’s take a look at the helmets, jackets, pants, gloves and boots that are protecting us from the elements and stresses of long-distance riding.
