Ask any one who rides a dual sport, touring bike, street bike, or what have you, and there is nothing that clears the mind, relieves stress, and makes them feel good more than just riding their bike. 

Combine riding with travel, be it a day, weekend, month or year and we hear stories about how riding has changed the way people think. 

We’ve heard from riders who have had a love of travel instilled in them and when they discovered motorcycles and combined the two, a whole new world opened up for them. Through travel we are given opportunities to experience different cultures, people, and places. Riding a motorcycle to get to these places makes us more vulnerable, we’re easily seen and we are a curiosity. The motorcycles are avenues for people to talk to us, ask questions, for us to get to know the real people of different places. 

Mixing travel with motorcycles offers a truly unique experience, not comparable to any other kind of exploration. It can change the way you think about yourself, others and life.

In this episode we talked to an Australian in Canada, Glen Baker, whose adventure motorcycles have included a moped, KLR and now a Triumph street bike. And JJ Lewis gives some tips on riding in the Copper Canyon.

Glen Baker: West Coast Wanderer

Glen Baker is from West Australia and now lives in Revelstoke, British Columbia in Canada. He's been doing adventure trips for the last 10 years, and in 2013 he gave up his job as an electrician, and left on a trip around the world. He fell in love with British Columbia and decided to make Revelstoke his home. Moto travel has become somewhat of an obsession with Glen, but the rewards have been tremendous. He says ask what he was like before he discovered moto travel compared to what he's like now, and you will hear he's a changed person. He's overcome some hardships, and plans to make moto travel his life, once he's cut through some red tape in Canada.

What Inspires a Motorcycle Adventure Traveler and Author?


Graham Field is a household name if you're in to adventure motorcycling, the author of three books, a world traveler and a co-host on ARR RAW. He's been the inspiration for many riders, who have read his books, and have been motivated to set out on their own adventures, wherever and for however long they may be. So, when Graham Field messages Jim and says he knows this couple, who just happen to be in Bulgaria staying down the road from him, that he finds inspiring, we were intrigued. We just had to 'meet' this couple and find out their story. Find out what inspires the inspiring.

Icy Cold Honeymoon Adventure: Jan & Silke Neumann

Not just any honeymoon would do for Jan & Silke, who met through their motorcycle riding adventures. Who wants to lay on the beach in the hot sun when you can ride in -35°C in a snowstorm, on two old Suzuki bikes, to the North Cape in Norway?

Jan & Silke call themselves an "adventure-loving, offroad passionate, travel addicted couple". They've both travelled extensively on their motorcycles and eventually got together and continue their adventures together. Their ride to the North Cape, commonly known as the most northerly point in Europe, certainly ranks as one of the most unusual motorcycle honeymoons.

Brent Carroll: Read a Facebook Post, Bought a Motorcycle, Attended a HUBB Meet & Went on an Adventure

Inspired by a Facebook post, Brent Carroll decided to get a motorcycle to do some adventure riding. After going to a Horizons Unlimited meet he was hooked on the idea of a long distance motorcycle trip, having met other riders who were travelling and exploring the world. In April, 2016 he set out from Virginia to Newfoundland, rode across Canada to Alaska and then down to Ushuaia. Being on the road for 13 months was a life changing experience for Brent, who came away with some valuable lessons learned that he has shared through video and on his website, and now with us.
