Touratech-USA Launches My Motorcycle is Home | Video

Touratech works closely with some of the world’s most prolific adventure riders, including legends like Helge Pedersen, and team explorers Simon and Lisa Thomas.

To exploit the true lifestyle of these ADV motorcyclists, Touratech-USA contacted a handful of them in early 2015 for a short-film project, “My Motorcycle is Home.” Touratech-USA asked these rider to provide video footage and talk on camera about their lives on the road, and the relationships they have with their bikes.

Touratech says featuring adventure motorcycle legends, Helge Pedersen and Simon and Lisa Thomas along with filmmaker Daniel Rintz, American riders Sandy, Terry and Jack Borden and relative newcomers to the scene, Claudia and Mirko Nagler, the film gives a diverse glimpse into the adventure motorcycle touring lifestyle and its challenges.

“Touratech works so closely with these amazing people. We talk to them in all of these exotic spots and hear the stories of their struggles too. It seemed like a cool idea to give everybody a look at motorcycle adventure touring through the riders eyes.” Matt Lewis, Marketing Manager, Touratech-USA.

“My Motorcycle is Home” has a running time of 5:25 and most of the shots are from helmet mounted cameras in far reaching locations across globe. The interviews took place in Mexico, South America and Touratech-USA’s Seattle headquarters, Touratech-USA reports.
