GlobeRiders Tips from the Road

On a recent GlobeRiders “African Adventure” tour, one of the riders admitted to a fault that caused much trouble on his BMW R1150GS – he forgot to install the Touratech Oil Cooler Guard he recently purchased.

And 16 days into the trip, his unprotected oil cooler was punctured by a rock, spewing oil on the bike and rider. Well, lucky he was riding with the founder of GlobeRiders and author of the famed book “10 Years on 2 Wheels,” Helge Pedersen.

Besides reminding viewers the obvious importance of an oil cooler guard, Helge provides some tips on repairing one out on the lonely roads that adventure motorcyclists usually travel.

Stay tuned for more video tips as they become available.
