Horizons Unlimited presents!

Gear Up! is a 2-DVD set, almost 6 hours of informative content! Which bike is right for me? How do I prepare the bike? What stuff do I need - riding gear, clothing, camping gear, first aid kit, tires, maps and GPS? What don't I need? How do I pack it all in?

Gear Up 2-DVD set. Although virtually any bike can travel around the world, 'which bike' is always a lively topic for discussion among motorcycle travellers. For the favourite travel bikes, we interviewed knowledgeable owners - why did they choose it, what's good and bad about it, how did they make it better, and what are their top tips for this bike. Through interviews with experts, we also cover how to prepare the bike for overland travel, what spares to take and choosing tires. Finally, we cover what to take and how to pack it, including riding gear, clothing, panniers, tents, sleeping bags, cooking kit, medical/first aid kit, maps, GPS and much more. Lots of opinions from over 150 travellers!

"This DVD will save you a fortune!" See the trailer here!
