The last news comes again from Japan. At Tuareg Rallye I met the boss (or better the "king") of Noguchi seats and he sent me a brand new one. Taller and with a special surface. As soon as it gets home I'll test it in rally conditions. Anyway, looks great!
Thanks to FR magazine my pictures at Africa Eco Race 2014 can be seen in Japan. FR is one of the most interesting magazines about motorbikes, worlwide. Their attention for design, even graphic design, has not many comparisons. Thanks a lot.
Sometime we push too much on post production. Sometime is not a picture anymore. What if the next step in fact is not a photo, but a comic? I'm experimenting new ways, with some minimalism. Here you can see me, changing a flat tyre in good company of a Tuareg, stepping forward to take a picture.
Well, dreaming yes, but maybe I can do some steps forward to a new rider style.
It has been an hard and long test, riding trough deserts fully loaded following two rallies. 6852 km at Africa Race first and 4550 km at Tuareg Rallye. Fifty percent offroad. Huge. What I can say about these bags? They're strong. Very. And they still look new. The best about them is that you don't feel the weight while riding. They move a bit, so the feeling is incredibly good. The era of hard luggage is over for me. Long life to saddle bags.
