Details

Why did we start Adventure-Spec? Because most of our lives were spent trying to ride in remote and beautiful places. The problem was, the equipment we used was always cobbled together from old motoX clothing, army surplus or DIY efforts and frankly it was rubbish. Enter Adventure-Spec Ltd.

After a few years of working hard building the business we thought there would be no better way to check the equipment and clothing we had created than by a little product testing mission.

We found a goal previously unattempted by independent  riders in a part of world normally unridden. We mixed that up with ancient desert camel trading routes, mythical cities, timeless anthopology, and good dose of some of the best, most remote desert riding in the world. We gathered a group of friends, planned for a year or so and went for it.

As an afterthought we decided to make a HD film and invited along Austin Vince, and after the 5500km we rode we're rather glad we did...


An adventure into the solar-blasted heart of the world's greatest desert. Follow a small band of British motorcyclists and a lone 4x4 as they battle across thousands of kilometers of sand and rock in a bid to reach the fabled salt mines of Taoudenni. Up against some of the toughest terrain the Sahara has to offer and with breakdowns, injuries, and a rebel uprising stacking the odds against them, the question is: can they succeed?

This trip was undertaken in conjunction with Beast Of Burden Expedition Logistics and was the second in a series of three Salt and Gold Expeditions led to the region between 2008 and 2010.

This DVD is in PAL format, but should play on most computer DVD drives

    Desert Travel Reference Piece Review by Tom Allen
    Desert Travel Reference Piece" by , written on 26 January 2012
    There aren't many areas of desert like this left in the world that you can ride anymore, and there a lot less films of them! This is a great account of remote desert travel and captures well the tense feelings that travel in these surroundings can bring. Brilliant HD quality, beautiful shots. Why are there not more extras, you must have more footage?!
