Sponsors and Equipment

  • Triumph Motorcycles - The official site for Hinckley Triumph. See the new models and accessories or find a dealer near you. One of our sponsors through the Norwegian distributor Colbjørnsen AS. PS Nov. 8th 2000: The deal we had with Colbjørnsen terminated when Triumph took over the distribution of their motorcycles in Norway.
  • Mototema AS, Kristiansand, Norway. A motorcycle dealer that supported us with a Corbin saddle to improve comfort for our Pan American trip.
  • Aerostich Riderwearhouse - Located in Duluth, USA, with an online shop, they sell high quality travel gear for motorcycle touring, and were kind to offer us a very decent discount on their products as a part sponsorship to our Pan-Am trip.
  • T.M.-Accessories, German shop for accessories, huge selection of Tiger stuff. The site is in German but you can contact them in english ( Very nice people who gave us a Scottoiler chain lubrication system as a support to our Pan-Am trip.
  • Touratech Motorcycle equipment - Located in Germany and has an online shop, we bought the Zega alumnium cases from them at a reduced price.
  • Chase Harper, makers of every kind of soft and not so soft luggage. Our host in Santa Barbara, Dibblee Hoyt, took us first to Chase, then to Harper. They equipped us with light protective hard bags for the laptop and accessories plus a hide-away bag that fit perfectly as a inner bag for our topbox.
  • Rocket Motorcycels, San Diego, California - Although not a sponsor, they deserve all the customers they can get. They did a complete overhaul of Rocinante and did a extremely professional job. I can highly recommend them for anyone in the area, or anyone going south who wants a last service before entering Mexico. Phone 619-276-2177, Fax 619-276-3261
  • MOTOS BREYMANN S.A. San José, Costa Rica. Specialists in KTM and Triumph, but also with long experience in BMW, these guys were very helpful and thourough in their work on Rocinante. They supported our trip with special rates on all parts we bought, and should definately be plotted on the map of anyone going south. The best workshop I saw after leaving the States. The owner, Oswaldo von Breymann, and his brother speak excellent English. Address: P.O. Box 2733-1000, Avenida 7 Calle 1 Y 3, San José, Costa Rica Telephone: 506 221 2274 Facsimile: 506 233 6952 Email:
