2ridetheworld video interview UK

Last week we were privileged to be able to welcome record breaking adventurers Simon and Lisa Thomas to our offices in the UK.

Back in 2003, looking for a break from their day-to-day lives, the couple set off on what they expected would be a 12 to 18 month trip.

Fast forward 12 years, and after covering more than 400,000 miles their BMW GS bikes ended up in a museum in America, and a generous benefactor sent them on their way on two brand new machines and the journey continued.

Since then, they’ve passed the half-million mile mark, and after 15 years they recently returned to Britain for a brief period.

We asked our Facebook followers to send in their questions, and put them to Simon & Lisa:

Long before they became ambassadors for Continental, Simon and Lisa were big fans of the TKC 80 Twinduro – the industry benchmark when it comes to dual-sport tyres.

The TKC 80 has proved to be the most versatile option for the type of riding they do, allowing the couple to tackle a wide range of terrain around the world.
