We are on the world trip therefore we can’t choose a weather or season when we want to ride because we are on the road everyday. We have been living in the tent so, we carry our house on the motorcycle and our carry capacity is limited.
We need motorcycle clothes, which we can use everywhere and every season. We don’t want to get wet under the rain, we don’t want to feel cold in the winter and also we don’t want to burn under the sun. We can’t carry summer jacket and winter jacket, need something mix.
He never rides motorcycle before so, he didn’t have any motorcycle gears. When we started our journey we bought a Dane jacket for him. I had motorcycle gears, which I bought ten years ago. I decided to keep continue with it for a while and see it can work still or not. 10 months later, I had Dane as well. 🙂
Both of us have been using Dane Limfjord 2 model. Yes, it is a men model but I want to have it as well because they called it the 3 in 1, which we were looking for. Also, we want to wear the same clothes. All season we have been using. Most likely the weather is hot in Africa. We took out the thermal line and Gore-Tex rain & windproof liner. We also open all zips to have fresh air. Light color is better than dark/black color under the sun but so hard to keep clean where we ride motorcycle. 🙂
Especially the southern part of Africa we had a lot rain and used our windproof Gore-Tex liner because we couldn’t escape from the rain season. Until now, we used thermal liner only in South Africa because when we were there it was wintertime.
We don’t use our motorcycle jackets only when we ride. But it is not like that for us. We don’t carry outdoor jackets for our self. First of all we don’t have enough space in our bags, second we don’t need because of our motorcycle jacket.
We climbed the Kilimanjaro with our Dane Limfjord’s thermal and Gore-Tex liners. When we were climbing to the Nyiragongo lave lake we used them as well because the temperatures where below zero. Also, we went many trekking under the rain Gore-Tex part was always with us to protect.
End of the day, we can use one jacket for ride motorcycle and outdoor sports. 🙂
Both of us have the same pants, Dane Brondby 2 model. It is combine with Dane Limfjord also called the 3 in 1. We haven’t use thermal liner part yet. South Africa was cold but we felt the cold more on our top not with our legs. But we used a lot Gore-Tex liner part of Brondby in rain season.
One thing we really like jacket and pants in front extra zips. When the temperature goes hot slowly we start to open them slowly. 🙂
We have Dane Limfjord and Brondby model motorcycle gears since September 2017. We made 25.000 km with them, used all season, all road. We are happy to have it and wear it.
