I’ve been riding on big bike tours for the last 15 years. Round the world, Timbuktu, Ushuaia to Alaska and UK to Bangkok (through Russia Kazakhstan Kyrgyzstan China Laos and Thailand) in 2014 , then UK to Bangkok again in 2016. I’ve done a lot of other shorter stuff too like Iceland and The land of the Dawn Lit Mountains in India plus lots closer to home too.
I’m planning to ride UK to Bangkok one last time with a small group in the summer, this time via Everest base camp. I just hope we get there. It’s not going to be easy. The best things never are.
I love to travel overland by motorcycle. To me there is nothing else like it. The smells, the sights, the noise, the quiet, the insane cramped traffic, the wide open spaces, the mountains and rivers, the bridges, the tunnels, the sweltering heat, the bone shivering cold, the arid winds and the monsoon rains. If variety is the spice of life then a long motorcycle journey can truly deliver a giant helping.
You can read all about the journeys on here. All the trials and tribulations, the ups and downs, the anger and the calm. You can read all you like but there is absolutely no substitute for experience. I’ve been very very lucky to have all these experiences. I’m not dead yet though so I think it’s time to share and to give something back.
My tours are simple and straight forward. You, me, some others, our bikes and a destination far away. What else do you need. If you’re happier just to read then please be my guest. I hope it gives you an insight into this sort of travel. If you’re interested in joining, then please get in touch. I’d be happy to hear from you.
