There is no better feeling of freedom than taking a motorcycle and just riding, it doesn’t matter were you are going, it’s exhilarating. It’s the dream of many people to travel the world on 2 wheels, I am one of those people.
To take on such an adventure the general consensus is that of a bike like Euan Mcgregor’s BMW 1200 GS, with all it’s gizmo’s and gadgets. A quick search shows that a second hand one is going to set you back £3,000, plus visas, insurance, gear. Now for many students this way out of their budget let alone having a license to ride a 1200cc motorcycle. For this reason I have teamed up with Max from Conquer Earth, to prove to it can be done a lot cheaper, but, also anyone can go on a motorcycle adventure without having to even have a full license.
I have ridden a variety of different bikes in all conditions for several years now, unlike Max… who has never ridden a motorbike, so we will be literally showing you from scratch, from what gear to take, to our bikes and even to learning how to ride!
Of course we will be documenting our adventure, from finding our trusty steads to us being stuck in the middle of some strange places!
Stay tuned, this is going to be one hell of a ride.
