The US 101, takes us down the West Coast, twisting into the forest and along the coastline, spying some famous beaches such as Ruby Beach. After that, the road curves back inland, leaving the coast. For the first time since Alaska, we start feeling the autumn chill.
Life isn’t a beach when you’re riding on sand. So, when the time comes to take your Brixton off-road, there’s a whole host of things that you’re going to want to know
so that you and your motorcycle stand the best chance of tackling such a harsh and unforgiving type of terrain.
Though whilst sand can be a little tricky to get the hang of to begin with, once you’ve mastered this terrain, there’s no other quite like it.
Following our days in the national parks, we head west towards Vancouver. But before getting there, we must cross the Okanagan Valley. I discovered the Okanagan Valley a few summers ago when I did a road trip with Kassi’s family. And it immediately captured my heart.
The Icefields Parkway – Jasper and Banff National Parks
We’ve been a month on the road so far. A month filled with beautiful Alaskan landscapes, new encounters and rain. Lots of rain! Luckily we found some rain gear for me, otherwise the journey through Alaska and along the Alaskan Highway would have turned out very differently.
But I have to admit that I´m happy to be back with my Brixton.
We’re ready to leave Lyon for Paris, where we’ll be taking the plane with our motorcycles to Calgary, Canada. Well kind of ready… The things to fit on the motorcycles are piling up and there hardly seems to be any space for them.
And just like that, I’m off on this incredible, 8-months long journey from North to South America.
On our strolls and rides we meet interesting people from all over the world. This time we found Joanne, a young lady from France.
She and her dad had the incredible idea of driving all the way from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, Joanne on her Brixton BX 125 X, her Dad on a bigger motorcycle. During their trip, they will pass through many diverse climates, like jungles, deserts, or tundra. In many regions, driving can sometimes be dangerous. They will drive through 17 countries on their long way to the south of Argentina, meeting many new friends and of course, getting lots of impressions which will stay with them for the rest of their lives
Before the Break Fast Club could start with the customizing, we all agreed on the following basic conditions: no modification of the engine, keeping the road permission or quick dismantling, no new typification.
A few months ago, Lorenzo, owner of a beautiful BX 125 Green had a great idea: to organize a Brixton ride. The starting point would be the city of Barcelona, and the final in Arenys de Munt, an outstanding place near the sea and the mountains. Through a group, Lorenzo shared the plans for that Sunday: the route, stops, route time, and other details.
The Break Fast Club is a group of women who have found each other through their shared passion for motorcycling. With our support, they also found their bike, a BX 125 X and started to customize it for the ROKKER Race organized by the Club of Newchurch on 21st and 22nd June 2019. For the Motto 2019 “RIDE YOUR MOVIE”, the Break Fast Club decided to pick up “Breakfast Club at Tiffany’s”.
On our strolls and rides we meet interesting people. So this happened: We got to know this awesome bunch of young, cheerful and lovely ladies, and were amazed by their passion and love for motorcycles. This is why we decided to support them and start a fantastic project together.
Therefore, we want to introduce you to The Breakfast Club. Be assured that great things are coming up!
Whether you’re riding home late from work or you’re a night owl flying around underneath the stars, riding your Brixton when the sun goes down can be a seriously enjoyable experience, but one that isn’t without risks. Here’s our checklist on the precautions that require your attention, and some of our top tips for staying safe.
The warmth is returning, and if you’re anything like us, you can’t wait to lift the covers off of your Brixton, knock the kickstand back, and catch up on all of the riding that you’ve missed out on over those chilly winter months. But before you let loose again, there’s a motorcycle checklist that needs your attention.
