7 Great Reasons & Excuses for a Motorcycle Adventure | All Roads Lead to Manchester with Pete Johnson  

Anyone who rides a motorcycle probably knows what it’s like to find any excuse or reason to ride. Some commute to work, some run all their errands using their bike… out of milk? No problem. Even though it’s easier to jump in your car, you’ll put on all your gear just to ride your bike around the corner. Whether it’s a day trip, a weekend jaunt, or perhaps an even longer adventure, it’s always in the back of a motorcyclists mind just what reason or excuse can they find to ride.

Last week we talked about making a resolution to do an adventure this year, and this week we are giving you some good reasons and excuses to justify it.

1. Stuck, Bored & Sick of Work

Lois Pryce: http://www.loisontheloose.com/
Tired of the cubicle job at BBC, in 2003 at 29 years old, Lois quit her job and set out on a solo adventure, riding from Alaska to Ushuaia.

2. Escape & Life Change

Scotty Kerekes: Scooter Tramp Scotty
Some go for a few months, some for a few years. Scotty Kerekes has been living on the road for twenty-one years. What started out as a soul searching experience turned in to a lifestyle for him. After being on the road for a year, Scotty realized that there was no turning back. He ended up selling everything he owned except for what fit on his bike, and hit the road… for good.

3. Setting a Record

Carl Reese - www.carlreese.net

Carl Reese set out to break the motorcycle record previously set by George Egloff in 1983, who completed the cross country run in 42 hours. Carl broke the record completing the run in 38 hours and 49 minutes.

4. Reunite & Reconnect with Friends

 Steve Mason, Raymond Danton & Wilson Hutchison: www.thelongwayup.weebly.com
The three were friends and biking buddies in Southwest Scotland in their teens. They eventually drifted apart to different lives, as many of us do, living in different countries. After over 30 years, a chance encounter brings these friends back together and they once again begin doing bike trips.

5. Moving

Will Wilkins & Kate Macdonell: http://www.wollongongtowoolwich.co.uk/
After living in Australia for 12 years, Will & Kate were feeling homesick for the UK and decided it was time to go home. They could have just booked a flight and within the day been back home. But, instead they decided to turn a moving chore in to an opportunity to travel.

6. Snow

Doris Wiedemann: www.doriswiedemann.de
Motorcycles are generally associated with good riding weather. And for most riders that probably means sunshine and warm days. But, there are some die-hards who actually really like cold weather and winter riding.
Adventure Rider Radio Episode: It’s Snowing - Perfect Riding Weather? 

7. Win a Contest

Pete Johnson: All Roads Lead to Manchester

In this episode, Jim talks to Pete about his theme trip that was realized when he won a ‘Biker Dream’ contest in 2011. Winning meant he had the excuse to do the motorcycle trip he had been planning since 2008, riding from Manchester in the UK to visit 33 towns called Manchester in the United States and Canada. 

Pete is also the moderator of the Chunky Tread Motorcycle Adventure Club on Facebook and Twitter.

Motorcycle Riders from Diverse Cultures with Common Grounds - Madagascar Adventure with July Behl & Innovative Soft Luggage System with Adam Owens  
July Behl - Madagascar Adventure

July Behl, was one of the six finalists for the United People of Adventure project organized by Touratech, with their initiative being to unite riders from different continents, cultures and speaking different languages, through their love of adventure motorcycling and travel. 

July found riding in Madagascar incredibly exciting, experiencing "gnarly roads to deep sand, broken bridges to unforgiving ruts, extreme heat to torrential rain, mad foreigners to slightly confused locals". He connected with his fellow riders saying "the people, everyone and I mean everyone was just brilliant - helpful, kind, considerate and always there for each other". It's a trip he won't ever forget, and would do again in a heartbeat.

Herbert and Ramona Schwartz from Touratech brought these motorcyclists together for the experience of a lifetime in Madagascar. They tell us their ideas behind this project, about the selection process, how the event turned out, and about their future plans for United People of Adventure.

How I Became A Motorcycle Adventure Junkie - Dr Gregory Frazier  

Dr. Gregory Frazier has been described as "America's #1 extreme motorcycle adventurer." He's an author, moto journalist, photographer and a documentary film maker. And he's a motorcycle adventure junkie.

He wrote the book "Motorcycle Adventurer" about the first real adventure rider, Carl Stearns Clancy, who circumnavigated the globe in 1912-1913, and he shares some secrets about this book with ARR. He talks about myths and untruths about motorcycle adventure, and how the internet can give misinformation about which he says, "never let the truth get in the way of a good ride tale".

In Dr Gregory Frazier's latest book DOWN AND OUT IN PATAGONIA, KAMCHATKA AND TIMBUKTU, he tells how he became "motorcycle adventure junkie" and he shares some tips and tricks that has fed his "addiction”.

Christophe will be sharing his knowledge of what it takes to be an off-road adventurer whilst Laura will be pushing her biking skills to the limits and experiencing a journey like never before.

An African Motorcycle Adventure About... Fruit?  | When Chance Decides Your Travel Route  

 

Every now and again, we hear about motorcycle adventure stories, that have, well let's say a twist to them. So, how exactly do you tie in fruit or dice on a motorbike trip? This week Max MacGillivray and Isaac Simonelli share their unusual stories with us, and maybe you'll get some great ideas of how you can make your adventure a little different from the norm.

Max MacGillivray: The Great Fruit Adventure

Max MacGillivray has a strong background in the farming and fresh produce industry, and a passion for healthy foods. He's also a motorcyclist. And three years ago, he made a plan to ride from London to Cape Town in Africa, to promote the benefits of fruits and vegetables to parents and their children. He and dairy specialist, Gareth Jones set out to create awareness, visiting food producers and schools along the way. And after a three month trip, they plan to carry on their mission in the UK, inspiring and educating children on healthy eating.

Isaac Simonelli - A Roll of the Dice, Which Road to Take?

What happens when you let the roll of the dice determine your next move on a motorcycle trip around the world? Isaac Simonelli left his job at a newspaper in Thailand for a year long adventure, and so far he's been through Southeast Asia and in to Africa. He lets the roll of the dice determine what he eats, where he sleeps and where he rides to next. Jim talked to him when he was in Kenya, will he still be there when this show airs or have the dice allowed him to move on and to where?

The Adventure Trio Returns - Terry, Sandy & Jack Borden  

There's a saying that it isn't what you do in life that you will regret, it's what you don't do.  With that thought in mind, the Borden family made a decision to go on a motorcycle adventure as a family. And once they made the decision, they knew there was no turning back.

A trip with the scope of the one they chose to do can be a scary thing, what with having to leave your home, friends, extended family, jobs and everything you know that has become the norm. And then there are the fear mongers, instilling in us all the bad and negative things that 'could' happen to us while we explore new territories. And the people who care for us that will worry while we're gone. And on the other end of the scale are those who encourage us, tell us it's the best thing we will ever do, that there is so much to do and experience in the world, and that it will change our lives forever.

In 2014, the Bordens left on their adventure, and they spent 15 months travelling through Mexico, Central and South America. Terry, Sandy and Jack share their experiences and stories which inspire and reassure us that this kind of trip will influence you incredibly, change your life and the way you think, for the better.

Lifelong Obsession with Motorcycles & North America Travel - Lance Gines  

Lance Gines has been riding motorcycles for about 44 years. Growing up on a farm in Idaho in the United States, he got his first dirt bike when he was 6 years old. Lance taught himself to ride in the horse area where his dad would train horses. Their farm was on the edge of BLM land (public) and two miles from the Snake River Canyon. He gained experience riding in the desert and in the canyon, which led him to buy his first street bike at the age of 14. And that's when Lance went on his first road trip with his father to Montana, Washington and Oregon.

Having a passion for riding since a young age, Lance has raised his kids with motorcycles. He's lucky to have a wife who is as obsessed as he is with riding and he still goes on motorcycle adventures with his dad regularly. 
Lance Gines is the author of Into the Horizon - A Lifelong Obsession with Motorcycles - Vol. 1, and is now working on Vol. 2. Many of the stories in the book are about the unique friendship he has with his father and the motorcycle trips they have done together. 
He's also the owner of Into the Horizon Adventure Motorcycle Tours.

Holding Your Water - Motorcycle Adventure Liquid Storage: Oil, Water & Fuel  

Water weighs in at  8.34 pounds per US Gallon or by the litre its .7 kg or 1.6 pounds, and humans need on average of 2.2 - 3 litres of water per day.
When we are packing for a motorcycle adventure, water and fuel are often left to the end to be fitted into whatever space remains, but considering the weight and bulk of liquids, not to mention the challenge of leakproof containers, perhaps it should be our first consideration.
And now that you have all that bulk and weight in water you still may need extra fuel storage. Fuel weighs less than water but still ranks high on your list of consumables for weight. 
So what do you do about all this weight and bulk of the extra water and fuel on your bike without making it feel like your riding an overloaded scooter?

Self Confidence Goes a Long Way - Motorcycle Trip from Australia to Iran with Liz Keily  

In October 2014, Liz and her partner Con Feyen set out travel from Australia to London with a 12 month window planned for their trip. They had sold, stored or donated all their belongings, except for what they needed for the trip, and while it may seem scary to some people, they were excited about the freedom of being homeless and jobless and without “stuff”. Liz felt no trepidations about not being a very experienced motorcycle rider, and happily set out for London.

 

Well, after 16 months of riding, they arrived in Iran. Seems their schedule had gone on the wayside and London was not to be attained on this trip. And while at times the trip may have been harder than what Liz thought it would be, she feels she is better off for having done it. She says that “it is never too late to start something new, learn something new and to put yourself in vulnerable situations”. And even now, Liz and Con are planning their next adventure as she hones her skills back in Australia.

Getting There is Half the Fun - Motorcycle Adventures - Will Wilkins & Kate Macdonell  

After living in Australia for 12 years, Will & Kate were feeling homesick for the UK and decided it was time to go home. They could have just booked a flight and within the day been back home. But when opportunity knocks, why not open the door?

Many people find it hard in their busy lives to take the time to go on an adventure. It seems to be a common thread where we all long for it, but don't seem able to pull it together. Will and Kate had already done some travelling, but not on their motorcycles, especially as Kate was a new rider and hadn't done any long rides as yet. This was their chance to turn a long move in to an amazing trip spanning across 20 countries and about 21,000 km.

In two months, they planned their trip and then left Wollongong for Woolwich. They experienced many different cultures, and had varying receptions. They faced food and accommodation challenges. And although well planned, they still had stressful times, and dramatic moments. But, through and through, it was an escapade which they thoroughly enjoyed... and much more fun than a long plane ride.
