BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Build with Touratech

Before heading out on his first trip of 2013, Helge Pedersen, the founder of GlobeRiders Motorcycle Adventures and author of “10 Years on 2 Wheels,” stopped at Touratech-USA headquarters in Seattle to outfit his 2012 BMW R1200GS Adventure with the latest accessories.

Pedersen upgraded his R1200GS with many Touratech parts, including engine protectors, the Extreme Shock, and Zega Pro panniers.

Once the process was complete, Pedersen took off on his first GlobeRiders trip of 2013, a 9,500-mile trip from Seattle to Tierra del Fuego.

In the video attached above, Pedersen talks about the BMW build, the accessories, and the trip he is currently completing.
