I have spent the last couple of weeks looking for a decent looking tank bag that doesn’t cost the earth and will fit an adventure style bike. After much research I found the GIVI EA110, an expandable bag with enough room for my valuables, pockets for change and phone etc..
Whilst searching I discovered the website “Two Wheeled Trekkers”, a website that details the epic journey undertaken by Cliff and Jenny as they travelled from England to New Zealand on 2 BMW F650GS bikes over a year! After a bit reading I discovered that Cliff and Jenny now run a bike shop dedicated to touring and adventure, The Adventure Bike Shop and they have some great gear for the wanna be explorer or experienced tourer. Having enquired about the Tank Bag and explained to Cliff what the purpose of the trip was he kindly offered a sizable discount on the tank bag as a way to help out and I’m very grateful for that support.
They will be at the BMF Show in Peterborough this coming weekend (16-18 May 2014) in the Adventure Zone, go see them and see what they have to offer! I plan to!
