Derek Mansfield - Notes From the Road Vol. IV

This book arrived, quite unexpectedly in our mail box a few months ago. We pondered the paper wrapping and wax seal and thought of what it might be. On opening, we discovered Derek Mansfield’s book, Notes From the Road Vol. IV. It’s a unique book about a journey across west, central and eastern Europe, describing the details and experiences in those places where Derek travelled, and not just the place itself. Derek’s use of words and descriptions are like the thoughts that run through our heads, but we never utter. And when you read them, you are exactly where he wants you to be.

This isn't a story about a long road trip, it's about living on the road. Lisa and Simon don't think about the end of the road, or plan for a flight home, because the road is their home. They usually sleep in a tent, they cook outside, and they wouldn't have it any other way. And after 13 years of living off their bikes, with nature as their kitchen and bedroom back drop, there are no plans to settle down, at least not yet and who knows if ever?

Lisa and Simon are seasoned travellers, they are truly pioneers of the adventure motorcycling industry. When they started riding, social media was non existent, there was no twitter, youtube or facebook. If people were riding around the world, they were doing it at a time when you probably had to learn from books, or by talking to other riders or travellers. Information on motorcycle adventure travel wasn't as prevalent on the internet in 2003 as it is now.

The Thomas' have paved the way for many motorcyclists looking for inspiration or role models. Their knowledge and experience speaks volumes, whether its about connecting with people, fitting in with different cultures, making a living on the road, or cooking a great meal, and they have some great tips and advice for anyone planning or already on their trip, be it solo or as a couple. 

Watch for the book Dirty Dining, An Adventurers Cookbook by Lisa Thomas - coming soon!

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.

This week we talk to Oliver Solaro aka Brokentooth, who is always up for a challenge, especially when it comes to his KLR 650 and ice or water. Bret Tkacs, motorcycle riding instructor from PSSOR gives some great tips on how to turn your bike in tight situations. And Sam Manicom gives us a ride report on his motorcycle tour in the United States.

Oliver Solaro - BrokenTooth - A KLR 650 & a Pontoon Boat?

Oliver Solaro doesn't let much stop him from enjoying life, and from doing what he wants to do. For Oliver, it's all about having fun and doing things most people wouldn't even dream about doing. He's been on several different winter trips on his motorcycle, and now he's modified a pontoon boat to carry his KLR 650 on his latest adventure. He casts an unusual appearance as he wears a cavalier hat with a feather, as he travels the waters in Ontario on the boat. Oliver plans to trace some of the route that the explorer, Samuel de Champlaine, the founder of Quebec City and an important historic figure in Canada, travelled when he founded New France. We know what you're asking... what exactly is Oliver doing? And how does a motorcycle and a boat go together?
