Upshift has the latest gear, up-close-and-personal interviews, bike tests, epic journeys from around the globe and stunning photos that make you feel like you’re there. Welcome to the December issue of Upshift, the ADV magazine that captures the essence of every destination.
In this issue…
“Upshift contributor Greg Smith rides the 60th anniversary Yamaha Super Ténéré in Australia. Yes, Australia. Sounds like a bit of fun to us. Right, mate?
Off-road racer Ricky Brabec is about to embark on a trip to South America where he will compete in the toughest off-road race in the world – the Dakar Rally - so what better time to sit down and have a chat.
Did someone say Morocco? We like travel and so does Adam Booth so we’re stoked that he’s taken us there for a story behind the KTM photo shoot in the North African country.
You think you’re a bit of an adventurer, how’s this for adventure? Tolga Basol is setting off on his journey of a lifetime in which he will circle the globe on his ADV. He will be checking in with us monthly and sending us photos, updates and stories so we can feel like we’re along for the ride. We caught up with the world traveler as he is preparing for his round-the-world trek."
"As you’re well aware, KTM makes really nice motorcycles. We recently got the opportunity to see how they go about making those motorcycles in our tour of their factories in Munderfing and Mattighoffen, Austria. And, of course, we bring it all to you because we can.
We have more than one interview in this issue as Rottweiler Performance’s Chris Parker talks to us about his KTM aftermarket fabrication business in southern California.
As for product testing, this month we have something for the bike and something for you as we test suspension from one of the best, Pro Circuit. We also let you know how the newest Alpinestar Corozal boot performs.”
