THAILAND UNLEASHED – the new Touratech Adventure-Movie with Charley Boorman

Now available online

In stunning images, the new Touratech film "Thailand unleashed" traces an adventurous motorcycle journey to the most remote regions of Thailand. It features long-distance travelling legend and Touratech brand ambassador Charley Boorman.

"Thailand unleashed" tells the story of a Touratech team's epic journey through the north of Thailand to the difficult-to-access border region with Myanmar. Demanding jungle tracks, river crossings and extreme heat constantly confront the adventure riders with new challenges.

But the team, consisting of Touratech CMO Martin Wickert, Sales Manager Elvio Andrade and none other than Touratech brand ambassador and adventure legend Charley Boorman, is well prepared: Their brand-new BMW R 1300 GS are equipped with an extensive Touratech parts package.

With Pruchayar Chaiyasotthi, better known in Thailand as "Mr Art", the three travellers also have one of the best experts on the Thai backcountry at their disposal as a guide. Mr Art, who reaches a huge audience on social media with his off-road adventures, also makes no compromises on the Touratech Test Tour. The team travels to one of the most remote corners of the country, gets to know authentic Thai cuisine at individual home stays, meets fascinating people, fights its way through rocky riverbeds and masters deeply rutted dirt tracks. Time and again, the adventurers find themselves in tricky situations. But with a talent for improvisation and not least Charley Boorman's incomparable British humour, the travellers overcome all challenges.

The adventure was captured in stunning images by Stefan Klabunde, who was also responsible for the film's post-production.

"Thailand unleashed - Far up North on the Touratech BMW R 1300 GS" is a spectacular documentary that tells of hardships, feelings of happiness, comradeship and the timeless adventure of being on the road on a motorcycle.

The film is divided into three episodes, which were released one after the other. All episodes are now available on the Touratech YouTube channel.
