Klim Adventure Rally Jacket and PantThe KLIM Adventure Rally Jacket and Pant, introduced in 2010, set a benchmark in innovation that fundamentally altered the core function and performance of technical motorcycle apparel.
Partnering with leading brands in state of the art technology and premiere fabrics, KLIM delivered a jacket that could go longer distances, carry more cargo, and provide unparalleled protection from the elements, all while minimizing rider fatigue.Since then, the Adventure Rally Jacket and Pant have tactically outmaneuvered the most tenacious riding environments, like the six-day Dakar Rally – rousing the most ardent riders’ passion from merely withstanding the elements to actively confronting them.The all-new completely redesigned 2014 Adventure Rally Jacket elevates the KLIM tradition of excellence to new heights. Refined for a better overall fit, the custom tailored look and feel of the Gore Tex GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY 3 Layer Pro Shell, featuring advanced abrasion protection from Armacor and Superfabric, and superior zonal impact resistance from D3O Xergo armor and Deflexion technology, seamlessly integrate with the revolutionary internal adjustable harness, minimizing weight transfer and reducing overall fatigue. Advanced storage capacity combines ample cargo space with intuitively designed accessibility, delivering 10 external water resistant pockets, including an integrated 3 liter bladder storage pouch with internal hose routing system.Enhanced visibility is achieved through 3M Scotchlite 360 degree retro-reflective technology and Bio Motion recognition, assuring the rider is seen from greater distances. Adjustability is paramount on the redesigned Adventure Rally, with standard and neck brace compatible removable storm collar options, variable tension waist and elbow straps, YKK zippered wrist expansion gussets, and a ¾ hip zip that bond jacket to pant.Redesigned ventilation, eight ports in all, circulate fresh air into heat zones throughout the jacket, expelling body vapor and stale air through exhaust ports on the back. Combined, these features make the Adventure Rally jacket the first in its class, again. The new standard in motorcycle apparel has arrived.For any race, any storm, any mission- the all-new 2014 Adventure Rally Jacket from KLIM.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
