Get Outfitted and Go Ride!

If you’re eyeing a new bike for your collection, be sure to bring your riding gear. Are you as eager as we are to get your gloves on the new DesertX? Ducati will be at Mountain West with several to ride, in addition to the Multistrada. Triumph will have its whole demo fleet and you’ll definitely want to make time to ride the new Tiger 1200. If you’ve been eyeing the Ultimate Overland Motorcycle Build, take a Tenere 700 for a spin at the Yamaha booth. Suzuki will be there with their DR, V-Strom, and more.

If the electric market has you intrigued, Volcon and Cake are showcasing their e-motorbikes. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to demo other e-bikes from Bakcou, QuietKat, and Ubco as well.

Remember that you need your own helmet for the motorcycle demo rides at Overland Expo, so be sure to bring your riding gear!

Whether you’re hunting for your next great adventure bike or you’re kitting out your daily driver, the Moto Village at Mountain West has everything you need. For all the women on two wheels out there, Just Ride 5 is featuring their full lineup of women’s gear and jerseys. Mosko Moto, SW-Motech, and Green Chili Adventure Gear will have the best luggage for every adventure. Rocky Mountain ATV/MC has tons of gear for sale and awesome adventure bikes to ride home on.
