There’s nothing more frustrating than holding a bottle of your favorite beverage in your hand, seeing the frost roll down its side as your mouth fantasizes about the pleasure that’s just moments away and realizing you don’t have a bottle opener.
The Kawasaki KLR 650 is a bike that has a reputation as the “gateway drug” for the Adventure Motorcycle culture.

Today, Touratech releases a video like no other in the adventure motorcycle market. The Zega Mundo video happens in less than two minutes, mixing a driving beat, twisting roads, mud, gravel, rushing water, epic backdrops and two adventure motorcycles roaring through the woods… and the soundtrack is performed entirely on Touratech Zega Mundo Panniers.
From the primitive, but effective ammo cans, to the sleek, modern, boxes of today that look like they belong at the space station, the pannier has always been as important to the adventure motorcycle traveller as dice are to Vegas.

Curious what a fully outfitted adventure motorcycle weighs? We wondered the same thing and have since strapped a variety of ADV motorcycles to the digital scale here at our shop in Seattle.
