ADV Touring Gear Research

Hello everybody!

My name is Jacopo Solimene and I come from Italy. I’m a student who is attending the final year of studies at L. Bocconi University in Italy. Now I’m doing an Internship here in America. I’m working on a research for my Graduation thesis. The subject is “the Business of the Motorcycle Apparel in Europe and North America”. I've choosen this subject because my father is an “Adventure Tourer” and he has transmitted me the passion for this kind of riding. Anyway, now I’m facing several difficulties for what about the Adventure Touring gear because I’m not able to find enough information to gather. Searching on the Web, I found this forum that seems to be the best one in all the US as far as concern the Adventure Touring. You are my last hope for gathering information for my work so I ask you the favor to answer to some quick questions. It will take you only 5 minutes: I made it as short (and less boring ) as possible.

Here it is the link to the on-line survey that I've made:

You are free to leave a comment below if you want. It would be really appreciated!

Thank you for your help and for your time. God bless you!
greets,

Jacopo

p.s. congratulation for the website. I've read a lot of interesting posts here and, OMG, there are lots of amazing pictures!

I completed your survey. I have one suggestion to improve it though. The second question only gives options for a dualsport bike. Adventure riding isn't about the bike you ride, it's about where you take it. I'd include a third (or more) category of non-dualsports.

Good luck with your research and school!

Let us know what you learn from the survey, please, and, perhaps, from your studies in general!

Yes, you are totally right!
But the problem is that statistically the non-dual sport categories have a little relevance. Usually the adventure tourers use Big Duals or Medium Duals or at most an Enduro because they are made for it.

I dare you to have a trip into the desert with a Ducati Monster or with a K. Ninja

Anyway. thank you for your help!

I was really unsure about putting that feature or less. I mean, each jacket has at least 4 large pockets.

which mark you would assign to

EASE OF USE
POCKETS
?

Thank you for the advice!

If it is not a problem (specially for Mods) I'll try to keep this topic highlighted till Monday morning.

In this way I hope to gather about 100 surveys or more (now I have 41).

Thank you again for your help!

I know someone who explores fire roads, light trails, goat trails with ease on his 96 Monster 900 with TKC80's on it....so like he suggested...it is about the rider and not the bike!
