While in Peru, Willson and his wife, Brayde stopped at the Touratech-Peru shop to do some work on their bikes and they ran into a couple of guys from Holland, Jeri Lubbers and Dagowin Hettich. They were on a couple of ancient Africa Twins and were in the midst of a motorcycle odyssey of their own.
Last weekend over 500 riders descended upon the tiny town of Plain, WA for the 2015 Touratech Rally. This was the fifth year of the rally and what started as an informal gathering of adventure motorcycle enthusiasts has turned into the largest adventure rally on the West Coast.
Earlier this month Touratech-USA CEO Paul Guillien and BMW Owners News Editor, Bill Wiegand traveled to Touratech Spain, borrowed a couple of bikes and rode through Europe to the 2015 Touratech Travel Event in Niederashsch, Germany.

A large group of riders (the leaders and sweep riders for the group rides) camped in the mountains to pre-run and proof these routes. We needed to confirm that the routes work and that they concur with the difficulty ratings applied.
Last weekend, riders from the Northwest and beyond descended upon Touratech-USA for our summer open house!
About a month ago, I met with ADV filmmaker Sterling Noren about doing a video for the KLR. The concept is basically that two of our guys will ride it for a couple of days on some different terrain and give it a review.
