On a blistery winter morning we pointed the WarWagon south to hit some Cali moto tracks and meet up with Simon and Lisa of 2RidetheWorld. We rolled into Competitive Edge about 9a.m. for my boys to do some moto.
With motos done for the day we headed to Riverside BMW. When meeting Simon and Lisa it is immediately apparent the Adventure couple are wise in the ways of the world few are, youthful and sharp. With pleasantries exchanged we got down to business, checking out the work of adventure art Simon's BMW 1200 GSA LC and Lisa's BMW 800 GSA had been transformed into. Each component they chose had been scrutinized and tested before being installed, resulting in bikes that are able not just navigate the globe but go the way less traveled.
At the time of our meeting, Simon and Lisa had not had any experience with Flexx Handlebars, other than mounting them on their bikes and riding them around the parking lot. They immediately noticed the drastically improved ergos our Adventure bend allowed. Mounting the the Touratech hand guards was a challenge, but with the use of our Kudla Connections the task was simplified an finished. With the hand guards mounted they were officially ready to resume their 'normal' life, with Baja being the first destination. We said our goodbyes, and wished them a safe journey.
A few weeks after our visit Simon checked in with some amazing photos and and an update on their Flexx Handlebar experience. No surprise, they were loving the vibration and abuse reduction the big bikes threw off. Feeling fresher day after day on the bike.
Simon and Lisa have recently decided to hang in Baja for the foreseeable future, hosting tours. Check their website out to learn more: http://2ridetheworld.com
