The modular helmet is a must as, in addition to the protection of the traditional full-face helmet, it also offers the practicality of being able to open the chin guard during quick stops to take photos.
As regards motorcycle equipment, the choice of accessories was determined based on the demands of the type of journey. Travelling the perimeter of Iceland by motorcycle sees a mixed itinerary of asphalt and off-road sections that are not particularly demanding. To guarantee load capacity the motorcycles were equipped with aluminium side cases, all with internal waterproof bags, as well as saddle and tank bags. The KTM can instead test the tightness of the Gravel-T soft bags range, completely waterproof and particularly suitable for the adventure line.
To cope with the winds and light drizzle, which are both quite frequent in Iceland in July, larger windshields and handguards were brought into play (the latter were warmly recommended by the local guides).
Two technical components are designed to limit damage to the engine and exhaust system in the event of slipping or falling: the engine guard and manifold guard.
And last but not least, plenty of useful support accessories have been provided, such as the Tool Box that makes it possible to have the most useful tools always to hand, additional spotlights, which are very useful after dusk, and the supports for smartphone/GPS holder.
