About the bike

This trip will be attempted on a Husqvarna 701. There have been a few tweaks to it but it’s a very competent bike so nothing done with the engine or suspension.

I’ve put on the usual soft luggage and tank bag and I’m still waiting for an extended fuel tank (to sit in front of the seat) and a touring screen (as going over 50 mph is a bit of a chore with wind resistance).

So far its had:-

  • An OSOC chain oiler
  • A Perun luggage rack
  • KEIS power lead for heated gloves
  • Home-made wiring loom for Garmin satnav
