BMW Motorrad UK supported our World Record Rides and continue to support our Expeditions. BMW will carry the GlobeBusters Motorcycle Expeditions for 2010 - 2012 in their World of BMW Activity Brochure.
Cotswold supply a complete range of top brand outdoor clothing and adventure equipment. Under the bike jacket and trousers, we tend to use outdoor brands to supplement or riding kit. If you want to camp whilst tavelling, then there is an enormous amount of equipment to chose from too. There are 63 stores nationwide + 3 clearance “ Rock Bottom” outlets in Manchester, Grasmere and Betws-y-Coed and you can also buy mail order on line.
Many riders ask us about who they can go to freight their bike abroad. James Cargo have an experienced team of freight forwarders, a number of whom are bikers themselves, and they can arrange to get your bike pretty much anywhere in the world. With easy drop off at Heathrow or Manchester, competitive quotes and most importantly a great understanding of how precious your bike cargo is, I'd be surprised if you can find better value for money and great service anywhere. Telephone +44 (0)1753 687722.
Our 2011 fleet of GlobeBusters bikes have been fitted with the Metal Mule MAX luggage system. Metal Mule has designed a unique, strong, quality product that sits at the top end of the market. We do just so many miles on the road in extreme conditions that we need an extra tough and robust pannier that guarantees our stuff stays dry and dirt free – even if a bike goes sliding down the road!
We have used Scottoilers for many years, most recently on Julia's F650GS Dakar on the 2005 Trans Am. With the new F800GS we once again are running chain driven bikes and are pleased to be working with Scottoiler. Smoother drive, longer chain life, less adjustment, how could you go without one? We have fitted Scottoilers on our F800GS bikes going to Beijing. Trust us you do not want to be adjusting your chain at 5000m and below freezing in Tibet. With our Scottoilers fitted we won't be!

To keep you going the distance on a GlobeBusters expedition you need good rubber. We have teamed up with Continental Tyres to deliver the grip and wear that we require on a long trip. During this years ride to Beijing and from Alaska to Argentina on the Trans Americas our GlobeBusters bikes will be running with Continental Tyres. We will use a combination of TKC80’s and the new TrailAttack 2. On any Global adventure make sure you get the grip.
When you are riding big mileage days, hearing protection is absolutely essential. We’ve chosen to use Ultimate Ear. Customised earplugs ensure a snug and safe fit; we use the standard filter plugs and also have a set fitted out so we can hook up to music and the like.
