Postscriptum: A Story To Inspire

It was a very special week in Redmond in late 2016 when these guys showed up on their 650s loaded to the brims with their halfway-round-the-globe baggage, laughter and undefeatable spirit. When Sergey saw the bikes, he just shook his head. And then got to work.

This story is about youth, the audacity, the crossing of the borders, the breaking of the barriers, the pushing of the limits, the ability to learn, to listen and to communicate on a very basic human level. It is one hell of an inspiration for finding your joy in our complicated, fast, technology obsessed 21st century. And it is our joy and an honor to share this story with you.

Paint Yourself Orange: New Custom Color

This blog post introduces a new custom paint scheme. We call it Outback Orange - liquid paint orange with metal flake and satin clear coat finish. Inspired by the rusty nuclear icebreakers and our own 2012 Yamal LE, two things you can be sure of: this Gear Up will make you stand out on the road or off and … almost none of this is just about the color. It is about how much has changed inside while the looks are still seemingly unchanged.
