The Voice of Moto Travel

May 26, 2016

We can find all kinds of reasons and excuses to keep putting off a short road trip, let alone a trip to other countries. As we all know, work can be the stopper in trip planning. We have to make money to support our riding addictions after all! And what if you’re just not comfortable enough to ride on your own, would a group tour be just the thing for you? Or if you know nothing about bike repairs? 

Even the biggest of problems has a solution, sometimes you have to jump through some hoops, make mistakes or just figure it out. While some obstacles can be intimidating or difficult, once you overcome them you may be surprised what you discover. In this episode we talk with Kinga Tanajewska and Brian Clarke about their adventure motorcycle trips and what they had to do to get there.

Kinga Tanajewska - Combining Work & Adventure in Australia

Kinga Tanajewska knew an interest of motorcycles at a young age, and rode street bikes since her teens when her parents bought her a motorcycle for graduation. She moved from Poland to Australia, and there developed a passion for adventure motorcycling led by her desire to see as much of Australia’s outback as she could. She had a dream to ride around Australia, but wanted to keep her job. She also had no repair skills in case she had a flat or other break down.

By splitting her trip in to two parts, and incorporating a couple of job transfers, she was able to mesh work and riding and ride solo around Australia. She experienced beautiful scenery, wildlife, and remote camping. For Kinga, changing a tire turned out not to be a concern after all, and now she is grabs any opportunity to ride. We call that rider mania!

Brian Clarke - People & Places Make the Adventure

Brian Clarke wasn’t happy being a mechanic, he’d had some failed relationships and was in desperate need for a change in his life. He’d always loved motorcycles but the expense kept him from riding, until he bought an old 600 Bandit and then he was hooked. Not knowing much about long distance adventure travel, he decided to book a Pan America motorcycle tour. Although his bike did break down just before the near three month trip was over, and the tour had proved challenging in more ways than one, Brian now realized that he was able to travel on his own. He didn’t need to rely on anyone else to guide him. He returned to the UK, leaving his motorcycle in Calgary, Canada. After a year, he flew back, got his bike and his two wheeled travel life began. 

Brian eyes were opened to the beauty of the land and people in the places he visited. He met the love of his life, motorcyclist Michelle Lamphere, and instead of an undesirable job, he passionately pursues riding and submits articles to various moto publications. Life is good!

May 6, 2016

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.
