KLiM's New Africa Twin Suit

RidingGearApparel

How cool are you going to look at Starbucks in this?!

 

I saw Mike's KTM KLiM suit last summer and thought to myself "self, that's a great idea!"  KLiM makes really good stuff.  However, I hear BMW will have none of that.  They think they already make the best suit ;)

 

Article from ADVPulse's Annette Peterson (read the whole thing)

 

The jacket and pants are from KLiM's Latitude line.  This link says "Africa Twin" but it doesn't look like they have current photos up yet.

When I got in touch with KLIM for the Latitude suit, they told me about this new "Africa Twin" limited edition.

 

It actually looks awesome, but it's literally nothing more and nothing less than a standard Latitude Suit with a different color scheme and a couple logos.

 

Still, it looks dope.

 

NOW, if only they did one specific to the GS... *sigh*

I heard BMW won't let them.  As good as Klim is, BMW feels their own are "more than adequate."

 

I had a Rallye 3 suit from BMW and wish I'd gotten the Klim from the start.

WHAAAAA? Man, the Rallye suits are my faves... I mean...looks-wise. It's one of the first things I ever wanted when I bought my first GS.
Too bad that thing costs literally like a used, decent, dirtbike...so I veered off and opted for the GS Carbon Helmet and the GS Pro gloves.

 

Btw, I did a "review" of the helmet!
Yes, I'm shamelessly promoting myself. My sense of shame withered and died long long ago.

 

I never liked the GS Pro gloves.  They aren't a bad glove but the dye would bleed off onto my hands.

 

That helmet is first rate though!  It would be great if you could write a review of that in our review section.  I can help you if you like and then we can push it out on the socials.

No problem Eric! I'd gladly review it! (I used to do reviews for a living, a long long time ago. T'was 'bout videogames, but doesn't matter)

Send me a PM with the details, ok?

And about the GS Pro gloves... are you sure you didn't pick a faulty pair? I've ridden through water, snow, hail, dirt and god knows what else with those, and all they did was getting dirty!

      What are your 'must have' items? What annoys you about jackets you've owned?

      Anyone run one of these or would you? I know they are not new per se, but I can't say that I see many in use. So, I thought it might make an interesting topic.

      I know it's such a small niche what we do (ride big adventure bikes) but my XLADV wardrobe aside from a few t-shirts I picked up at a trade show is not that imaginative.
       
      I saw this t-shirt Tolga Basol was wearing and asked him where he got it.  He said "ADV Addicts."
       
      This is the one he had that I though was cool

       
      Of course, who would want one of these?

       
      They have more shirts as well as hats and surely more to come...

      I have frozen for the last time and need to get some good heated gear.  I rode with a heated vest once and it was heaven.  I've heard of Gerbings but don't know much about them or other brands.
       
      Zach uses Tour Master Synergy 2.0 vest and likes it.  Any other recommendations?
       
      I ride in SoCal where it's only cold in the winter and by cold I mean between about freezing and 50.
