GlobeBusters motorcycle expeditions have successfully completed their epic overland ride from London's iconic and world-famous Ace Cafe to the opening of China’s first ever Ace Cafe, in Beijing. The group of fifteen motorcyclists, from the UK, Russia, Switzerland, South Africa and Australia, took 12 weeks to complete the 13,000-mile trip. Their route followed the northern Silk Road, from Turkey, through Iran and Central Asia and into western China.
This was the first overland expedition that Globebusters have made on Triumph motorcycles. The Arsenal included one 1200 Tiger Explorer for the leader, one Tiger 800XCx for the support rider, one customer on an Explorer and another on a Tiger 1050, with all bikes performing without fault.
On arrival in Beijing the GlobeBusters’ expedition was welcomed at the grand opening of the brand new Ace Cafe by 300 cheering locals and the founder of the Ace Cafe, Mark Wilsmore, who had flown out to China to witness the opening of the new venue.
