Touratech sponsored ecologist Chris Morgan uses his Touratech TT-39 equipped BMW F650GS in a quest to save threatened bear populations around the world. Originally from Britain, the 39-year-old ecologist navigates rugged tracks to reach some of the most remote bear habitat on Earth.Chris is Co-Director of the acclaimed Grizzly Bear Outreach Project in the North Cascades (Washington state, USA). He is also Executive Director of the nonprofit group Wildlife Media and is producing a feature-length documentary titled BEARTREK. The film chronicles Morgan’s motorcycle adventure across four continents to understand and conserve the rarest bears on Earth. These efforts are part of a broader campaign to raise awareness and funds for innovative conservation projects, including those featured in BEARTREK.
"There’s nothing like getting off the beaten path with your bike, and I do it a lot during my wildlife conservation work. Touratech’s gear – especially the TT-39 tanks, and their indestructible Zega cases – let me take that to a whole new level – with confidence. Their equipment is tough, rugged, and reliable, and just as importantly, the Touratech team is in it for all the right reasons. Thanks for supporting BEARTREK guys!" – Chris Morgan, Executive Director, Wildlife Media
