What to pack

General

Helmets are compulsory at ALL times! It is the law to wear a helmet everywhere we ride.
We recommend that you travel with rugged, ‘soft’ luggage, which can later be stowed in the support jeep. What follows, is a selected and detailed list of items that are of primary importance for the safety and comfort of all our riders. This list has been carefully elaborated, year after year, on the basis of our experience in the terrain. All items that we have considered are most suitable and will guarantee a better course of the expedition. There is neither time nor facility to equip yourself adequately
during the first day of your trip in Mongolia, so please read through the following list. We strictly recommend our guests to acquire, specifically, all of the required items.

Bike Gear (*required)

The easiest way to bring your riding gear is by wearing it on the flight, if you need to transfer onto a smaller national flight with
luggage restrictions (Please check before you leave home). Should you only fly international flights to the meeting point, it’s
easy to pack all this gear into a duffel bag, which can be folded and kept with your luggage which will travel in the backup van
for the duration of your motorcycle tour.
