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.

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

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.
