Martin Brucker visits Touratech Australia
Touratech Australia recently had a visit from Martin Brucker, who is currently travelling Australia as part of his world tour.
With support from Touratech Germany and Touratech Australia, Martin rode away from our Victorian headquarters in a brand new Companero riding suit.
Here’s Martin’s thoughts on the suit (in his own words), and some great photos of his travels in Australia.
“Yesterday I met Robin from Touratech Australia and receipted a Companero riding suit. Thanks very much for the great offer, help and sponsoring to Herbert Schwarz and the team behind.
Robin (pictured right, with Martin) introduced me to the functional part of the Companero. Robin and his team were very helpful. Thanks very much for that.
My first impression of the suit is that the Companero seems very light in weight comparing to my former suit, the BMW Rally 2. Since now I have had a one hour ride with the Companero summer suit, it felt comfortable and aerial.
Will give the Companero a real test in the three weeks desert ride towards Perth. I am invited from other, more experienced, travelers to join their group. I met them on my way down the east cost of Australia. The tour starts at the 11th of April and follows unmaintained tracks towards Perth.
Thanks very much to Touratech and the team behind for the sponsoring, help and effort I receipted until now.
Please find attached some photo of my tour on Tasmania the last six weeks.
Jacob’s Ladder (below) – north east Tasmania. Climbing 1000 m within 20 kilometers.
Mud day (below) – south west Tasmania. That is how it will look like when you ask a local about an enjoyable back-road and he take a look to your bike and respond, “well, there is one and with your bike it should be manageable”.
Beach side wale bones (below) – south west Tasmania. Beach side ride about 13 kilometers. Half way you pass, within 2 kilometers, about eight stranded whale bodies. From some of them are only the bones left. The smell is not that good.
Hope you will enjoy the pictures.
