Each rider will be equipped with American Kargo products to suit the needs of traveling 4,000 miles across the ocean to compete against the best supermoto riders from around the world. The first bag of three is the AK Trooper Bag, which was built to hold basically everything you can think that a backpack should hold and more!

The bag is equipped with a ventilation system that keeps your gear fresh, exterior customizable number plate location, tool storage, and has a 270-degree main compartment access. The third and final bag the 2014 US Team will be provided for the trip is the AK Gear Bag.

It’s going to be important to have these bags for this trip because I want to make sure my gear stays safe in transit to Europe. I want to be able to access items as needed when traveling and American Kargo bags are the definitely my travel solution”, stated US Team rider Johnny Lewis.
