The 8111 Iron Ranger Boots
Today, we would like you to meet Aileen. Originally from Potsdam, Germany but having lived in Australia for the past five years, she came to our Berlin Store in search of a pair of motorcycle boots in January. When Aileen walked into our store, we had no idea what an adventure she was about to embark on.
Looking for a boot that is as tough as life on the road, Aileen picked up a pair of 8111 Iron Rangers and told us that she was about to set out on a very special journey. Being a passionate motorcyclist, she had decided to go on a world-spanning trip on her bike in order to escape her regular life. The simple idea is to leave everything behind and to go on a journey to free body and soul, to breathe in the freedom of the open road and to meet interesting and like-minded people all over the world.
Captivated by her idea, we decided to support Aileen on her journey which is going to start off in Indonesia in early April and continue to Vietnam and the United States after that.
As Aileen’s Moto Quest website was launched last night, you can read her official press release below.
"THE MOTO QUEST WEBSITE LAUNCH!!!
One Woman. Two Wheels. Four Corners.
The Moto Quest is a story about me, Aileen, traveling the world by motorbike.
There’s an aspect of this journey that makes it almost impossible – that’s why I’m doing it. Because I don’t know if I can. I want to experience the ability of my spirit to overcome physical boundaries and what others say cannot be done.
Along my moto adventure on this website I will share with you, how I keep my body and soul healthy, what I am learning and how I am looking for magic in even some of the toughest situations.
I am very nervous, uncertain and challenged by what I’m daring to take on. But I am also incredibly excited. I can’t even begin to imagine what’s ahead of me!”
