In this podcast episode, we talk about the Touratech Rally and testing the Harley-Davidson Pan America. The Touratech Rally is an annual adventure motorcycle rally held in Plain, WA, and is organized by Touratech USA, a well-known manufacturer, and distributor of adventure motorcycle equipment and accessories.
The Touratech Rally provides a great opportunity for adventure motorcyclists and enthusiasts to come together, share experiences, attend workshops, and participate in various activities related to adventure riding. The rally typically features guided rides, skills clinics, camping, vendor displays, and product demonstrations.
Participants have the chance to explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest region's scenic backroads and off-road trails, offering a fantastic backdrop for adventure riding. Riders can meet like-minded individuals, get inspired by seasoned adventurers, and learn from experts in the field during the event.
Since event details may change from year to year, it's essential to check the official Touratech USA website or other reliable sources for the most current information on the Touratech Rally in Plain, WA, if it is still being held after my last update.
Harley-Davidson wanted to fly me down to Mojave earlier in the year to get me back on the Pan America. As it turned out, we already planned to go to the Touratech Rally. Harley had a fleet of demo bikes there and they hooked me up with one for the day. I had the opportunity to talk with Terry Rumpel who is the Engineering Manager for the Pan America. I also was lucky enough to go out for part of the day with Justin Cleiter who is the Touring Manager for the Pan America. Now that is a great job!

So, what is my prediction for the future of the Pan America? I have to preface this by saying that I have no inside information related to my prediction. I'm basing my prediction based on my knowledge of the motorcycle industry and the fact that the mid-weight adventure motorcycle market is blowing up. My prediction is that Harley will come out with a mid-weight Pan America in the near future! Perhaps with the Revolution Max 975. We will see…
