Ceuta to Marrakesh, Triumph 1200 Scrambler, Motorcycle Life Hacks and Gear Maintenance
Sep 28, 2018
Here in Mexico, we haven’t done much riding last month, instead I took a short trip to some of the most beautiful and underrated places in the Caribbean: The Corn Islands.
On big Corn Island, I managed to get my hands on a small but fun Yamaha YBR 125 and took it for a little off road trip in the jungle.
In this week’s Moto Intel Report, Guido talks maintenance and gadgets. Jasper reminisces about his trip to morocco and goes through some motorcycle life hacks and I take a first-look at the soon-to-be-launched Triumph Scrambler 1200.
Now, without further ado, let’s get rolling…

Motorcycle Gear Cleaning and Care Guide
INTERMOT this Wednesday to Sunday
“More than 1,000 companies from the two-wheeler industry are coming to Cologne from all over the world to introduce 220,000 visitors (including 59,000 trade visitors) to present their product range of motorcycles, scooters and e-bikes.
Short brake and clutch levers
If you ride a somewhat sporty bike (note that I’m not saying sports bike), then you should definitely consider putting on some short levers. I did this on almost all my bikes because I really like them. Why? Well, besides that they look a whole lot better than those ugly long stock ones, it’s a relatively cheap mod, ánd they are much more comfortable if you like to break with only a couple of fingers. Short levers won’t trap your right most fingers between the end of the lever and the throttle (especially a problem if you’re wearing bulky gloves). Next to that, most of the aftermarket ones will offer finer adjustment compared to the stock ones, so you can set them exactly like you want them.
7 Motorcycle Life Hacks
Visordown has a brilliant motorcycle life hack list. I just had to share one of them here. The smartest and easiest hack was simply to always bring a spare pair of gloves in case you get wet on your way to work. As it is autumn now and we are bound to get wet sooner or later, the easiest way to make sure you have warm hands on your way back is to bring extra gloves. How about that huh?
