Don’t let emergencies end your ride
Preparing for each ride is just as important as the bike itself. We may be suited up in protective wear from head to toe, but there are always the unfortunate circumstances to watch out for.
So, here are couple of GIVI products developed specifically for those situations.
GIVI S301 First Aid Kit
A first aid kit should be on every motorcyclist’s must-have list. We call it “wajib” in Bahasa Melayu.
Every motorcyclist knows the risks of riding in the back of their minds and we are prone to nicks and cuts, at minimum, despite not being involved in a major crash. For example, your buddy’s tyre could kick up a stone which smashes onto your shin.
Injuries are even more prone to happen when one rides off-road. A tree branch could slap you on the face or a sharp bump could cause your feet to slip off the footpegs.
Oh yes, we have been there on more than one occasion. (The GIVI Rimba Raid Mat Daling being the most recent.)
The GIVI S301 First Aid Kit is truly compact to carry in a GIVI waist pouch or even under the motorcycle’s seat. Such convenience is necessary since storage space on motorcycles is always a premium.
The kit includes:
- Adhesive tape;
- Self-adhesive bandages;
- PVC gloves;’ Isothermal blanket.
GIVI S450KIT Tubeless Type Repair Kit
A flat tyre does not have to end your adventure.
While it true that punctures and flat tyres are a rarity these days, that does not mean you should not prepare for one.
Needless to say, a slow puncture will cause increased fuel consumption, increased and abnormal tyre wear, and degrades the handling of the motorcycle. An extreme puncture, on the other hand, will potentially destroy the tyre and cause a loss of control. It is not ideal either way, is it?
So, what do you do if you encounter a puncture? You are lucky if you are near a petrol station as you could contact a mechanic or a motorcycle recovery service. Both are expensive options, we would like to remind you.
But how about when you explore off the beaten path, say on an off-road ride? Or touring on a long highway. Or touring somewhere rural where you do not speak the local lingo and they lack the facility to repair your type of tyre?
Believe us, we have encountered such challenges in our extensive touring experience.
Best thing is to always carry along a GIVI S450KIT Tubeless Tyre Repair Kit. Think of it as the first aid kit for your motorcycle.
Included in the kit are:
- 1 x Connect complete with valve;
- 1 x Flexible tube;
- 1 x Cutter;
- 5 x Sealing strips (“cacing” in local Malaysian lingo);
- 1 x Plug insert tool;
- 1 x Hole routing tool;
- 1 x Tube of adhesive (glue);
- 3 x CO2 canisters (there is no need for an air pump).
The kit measures 19 cm x 11 cm x 4cm, which means it is compact for easy carrying.
We recommend that you ride with a tyre repair kit and first aid kit at all times. Being over-prepared and not utilizing them at all is better than to find yourself wishing you had them should the unfortunate occasion arises (touch wood).
