  2. Keith D. Twing on August 28, 2018 at 4:14 pm

    Awesome info. What kind of cellphone holders?

    The sound of the (mighty) KLR 650 starting up is inspiring. I put 33,000 miles on one myself.

  7. 690 ADV on August 28, 2018 at 4:18 pm

    another great video, keep it going.

  8. on August 28, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    Ever has a situation where you have needed the mace?

  9. Meaca on August 28, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    My trip to India went slightly… differently. I flew there, bought a Bullet. Drove through Delhi to find parts (dirt cheap), a helmet (dirt cheap), tools (dirt cheap) and a map (yes, one made of paper, oh it was dirt cheap) and drove of into the Himalayas… Your way is slightly more, organized!

  10. anand chandran on August 28, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    Hey Alex, where did you get the Schubert E1 from. Can you recommend me for the cheaper one. Thanks. Btw this video was so informative. Loved it.

  11. JustThaor on August 28, 2018 at 4:21 pm

    Where can I buy the fork stabilizer

  12. Trausti Ingvarsson on August 28, 2018 at 4:21 pm

    Oh OH OH!!! Iceandic flag 🙂

  13. FULLCIPHER on August 28, 2018 at 4:21 pm

    my wife delivered a burger with a fried egg on top for me to eat as i caught up with your latest vids.

  14. Frank on August 28, 2018 at 4:22 pm

    Fun video! A laughed when you pitched bringing a helmet – who on earth would be so stupid going on an adventure trip on a motorcycle without one?

  15. John Wick on August 28, 2018 at 4:23 pm

    Bin the slime, get a Tyre plug kit instead some much better and quicker also les messy when changing tyres

  16. BikerOfAmsterdam on August 28, 2018 at 4:24 pm

    Super video 😛

  17. Albert Tran on August 28, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    Wear rigid offroad boots if you’re offroading a lot

  18. Inspecktor F on August 28, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    Alloy or spock wheels?

  19. stephen M on August 28, 2018 at 4:25 pm

    ha ha ha ha 4 pair of gloves OMG ha ha

  20. ladyknieval on August 28, 2018 at 4:26 pm

    Yes, a tool tube does look like a pipe bomb! How did that get thru airport security, even in checked luggage? Or did you ship in a box and you flew to meet your stuff?

  21. Prashant Pawar on August 28, 2018 at 4:26 pm

    Thank you for sharing Great piece on Information

  22. Cecil F Bowes on August 28, 2018 at 4:31 pm

  24. Rockabilly Rambler on August 28, 2018 at 4:33 pm

    have you ever needed to do a valve service on the road? or do you pay a shop to do it? ive seen slime prevent patches from sticking :/ has this ever been an issue?

  25. Zwingli Tannenbaum on August 28, 2018 at 4:36 pm

    why not just drive a car

  26. Ashwanikumar on August 28, 2018 at 4:41 pm

    bro ..your made for this….✌✌

  27. Sarath Menon on August 28, 2018 at 4:42 pm

    Alex to TSA agent: "Officer, I know this looks like a pipe bomb, but I swear it’s something to carry tools in"

  28. casual on August 28, 2018 at 4:42 pm

    Hi Alex, I have not bought a motorcycle yet but I will be soon. But, I really do not know what to buy a sport,cruiser, adventure? I really would love to have a bike to do everything, having long trips, nice looking not too big and old, fast.I am in my 20’s so you may know what i feel. What bike do you recommend for me? Ihave saved 6k.

  29. lonestarrider on August 28, 2018 at 4:44 pm

    Fantastic! Great info! I would not have thought of some of that stuff to take!

  30. Roadstarr on August 28, 2018 at 4:47 pm

    Great video Alex! Some very good tips there!
    safe journeys my friend.
    Ride safe!

  31. User TryItOut2 on August 28, 2018 at 4:51 pm

    Its time to buy a trailer for all your stuff, Alex

  32. Christowarrior on August 28, 2018 at 4:53 pm

    Great video! Id love to take my KLR out for a round the world trip some day! <3

  33. recom273 on August 28, 2018 at 4:54 pm

    Who makes the jacket and pants. They look nice.

  34. NMBE 650 on August 28, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    Hey Alex. I’m Wondering what your opinion is of the Tube Tire Sealant? Obviously you wouldn’t take it if it didn’t work but how well does it work? Thanks. I’m really enjoying your South American vlogs.

  35. Island Dreaming on August 28, 2018 at 4:57 pm

    Alex – Q – isn’t your Goretex riding suit waterproof enough already .., why do you need further wet weather riding gear ?

  36. Ben on August 28, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    What helmet is that? 🙂

  37. Key Motovlog on August 28, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    What kind of helmet do you wear ? the link for helmet is "Page Not Found", thanks …

  38. Matt Wooles on August 28, 2018 at 5:03 pm

    Alex, what software do you use to edit your clips to make your YouTube videos? By the way….great stuff you’re doing

  39. Sergiu Nistea on August 28, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    take care on your trip. please tell us about the weight because if you go offroad or on hard roads, weight is the most important thing and some of that stuff its just useless things you carry.

  40. Jared Antonio on August 28, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    Can you take all these on an airplane?

  41. Kevin Heimbouch on August 28, 2018 at 5:09 pm

    thanks Alex. you have inspired me. I was about to sell my klr

  42. TheYowzerr on August 28, 2018 at 5:09 pm

    you forgot to list the fork stabilizer and the klr dash kit’s purchase locations man…oh and love your video’s man…keep it up 🙂

  43. zork on August 28, 2018 at 5:10 pm

    Seems to me you’re taking loads of luxuries. Regarding oil filters and chains: I presume you aren’t taking gallons of oil so I’d just buy filters when you buy your oil and do it where KLRs can be serviced. I think you don’t need spare chains you just need a repair kit For breaking/joining kit in case the chain breaks. When it needs replacing I’d call in to a bike workshop and get it done. I’d say Tip number one is only take what you need in order to keep the bike weight down.
