Providing Quality Motorcycle Products
As lifelong motorcyclists, we’re passionate about two-wheel travel; be it a trek across the Eurasian Steppe, or a quick step for espresso across town. Wherever you go, there’s nothing like the feel of the wind, piloting a bike that runs like a Rolex, and having the ability to carry stuff. That’s where AcmeMoto2 comes in.
An often overlooked, yet essential part of the human/machine interface is luggage. Experienced moto overlanders say when you’re living out of your bags in challenging terrain for months at a time, they become an essential part of the team, and can make or break your journey.
We like hard bags that stay on their mounts and do not dent or deform when we hit things or drop the bike upon them. We think a lid belongs on top, so we can pop it open in seconds to load groceries or grab raingear. Said lid should have locks that lock and seals that seal, keeping our stuff safe and dry, even if we’ve had a few too many tip-overs.

I met Stephen at the Barber Vintage Festival a few years ago and his enthusiasm for Moto Guzzi’s was incredible. He also took a liking to the Acmemoto Tough Luggage so, when the time came to find someone to test them, he quickly came to mind. The more I got to know him I realized that he had a deep understanding of social media and the place it has in the current motorcycle market.
He also rides a lot.
You will find him on facebook as Motospotter.

THE ACMEMOTO2 TOUGH LUGGAGE TEST CREW
Long mile riders who we have relied on to put miles on our luggage
“My history is all motorcycles; 45 years worth and counting. I train hard to stay fit for motorcycling because there are a few moto opportunities I haven’t explored yet…riding in Iceland happens this summer.”
In the 70s Linda rode single track on Huskys, a 250 and a 175, and worked in a commercial photo studio. Weekends she photographed motorcycle races for magazines and moto gear for manufacturers. Linda photographed the ISDE (then ISDT) in the U.S. and around Europe for more than a decade and the US team and magazines like Cycle, Cycle Guide, Motorcyclist and others used her work. Linda’s photo team flew their bikes to Germany in 1982 to ride through the Alps between races there and in Czechoslovakia. “My first road bike was a nearly new 1974 BMW R75 airhead, I still have it but it now has a sidecar.”
