The Voice of Moto Travel

Sep 29, 2017

Daniel Rintz is a filmmaker, photographer and adventure motorcyclist from Dresden, Germany. Born in East Germany at a time when world travel was impossible for his family, Daniel’s whole world opened up when the Berlin wall fell and he embraced the opportunity to travel. Since then, he’s explored by bicycle, train and automobile, but motorcycling remains his passion.

In 2008, with a rough plan and no money, Daniel and his friend left East Germany for an around the world motorcycle adventure. With no safety net, they planned to work to finance their trip as they went along. In 2010, while in Asia, Daniel met Josephine (Joey) Flohr who was on a backpacking trip. She joined Daniel in his passion for motorcycling and they have been doing trips together ever since.

Daniel and Joey have recently completed a 3 year motorcycle adventure, and are putting together a film about their journeys, a sequel to Daniel’s first film “Somewhere Else Tomorrow”.

In this episode, he shares some great tips on making money on the road, travelling in Africa, and more.

When buying a motorcycle jacket - do you shop for style, comfort or crash protection? And what is crash protection really? Is there a certifying body that say the garment will save you? So many questions but we will get some answers on this episode, so that the next time you find yourself in front of the jacket rack, you have a clue what you really want. With David Hough.


Motorcycle author and journalist Dr. Gregory Frazier completed his sixth trip around the world not long ago. So where does a guy that travels this much hang his hat (read helmet)? And for that matter, where should you hang yours when you park your bike? Well, this may seem like a simple task, but Dr. Frazier has a few stories about riders that have learned through the school of hard knocks about what can happen to a misplaced helmet. We aren't talk about scratches. :)

Dr Gregory Frazier

Dr. Gregory Frazier has done several motorcycle trips around the world, he’s been shot at, spent time in jail and has had some incredible wildlife encounters. He’s a journalist and photographer and his work has been published in many motorcycle publications.

Social media has become a popular source of how we share our life, including our travels or adventures. And through social media, we share our photos and usually include a write up to show what we’re doing, where we’ve been. And if we want to get back to basics, well photography has been around for a long time, and looking at a photo can you put you right in to the picture, you can imagine the sounds and smells, and it gives us insight in to things we might otherwise never get to see. And journal keeping, be it on a blog or by written word, has the same effects on us, except we use our imagination to picture where the author is.

Both are incredible ways to share stories, and for us to look back on where we’ve been, to refresh the memories from long ago. In this episode we talk to Tim Burke, who documents his journeys through photography and we have a flashback to an interview with Graham Field, who is an avid daily diary keeper.

Every Picture Tells a Story: Tim Burke

Tim Burke is from Seattle, Washington and in April he quit his job, sold off his belongings and shipped his motorcycle to London to do a trip around Europe. At first, it was about the motorcycle adventure, but very quickly he grew to love photography and it became a large focus of the trip. His photographs have been featured in some motorcycle branding catalogues, magazines and social feeds. For Tim, photography on the road is a way of sharing his experiences with other people. He has some great tips on travelling on a motorcycle with photography equipment, and he also shares his story on how he got to where he is.

Graham Field - How he Documents His Life

We decided to share part of this episode which ran in August, 2014 where Graham Field tells how he has kept track of his life, and he also reads some of his diary to us. He’s the author of three entertaining motorcycle adventure travel books and you can find them on his website at www.grahamfield.co.uk.
