Outfitting Our Motorcycles for Adventure: Greg's BMW F700GS "Penelope"

Ruff on the Road


on 2 Wheels + 4 Paws

It's Motorcycle Diaries + A Dog's Purpose. German Shepherd Moxie narrates her adventure travels and the lessons she learns along the way.

Since we started the on 2 Wheels + 4 Paws video series about traveling on BMW adventure motorcycles with our German Shepherd Moxie, we’ve received a lot of questions about how we outfitted our motorbikes.


In this video, Greg describes the accessories and modifications that he has made to his 2013 BMW F700GS motorcycle to improve protection, performance, and ergonomics.


In a separate video, Jess describes a bit about the accessories and mods to her 2013 BMW G650GS. And there's another video, if you want to learn more about how to store road tools on a BMW F700/800GS without using panniers.
