In 2012, Claire Elsdon, who was a stockbroker for 8 years in London, England, went on a solo motorcycle adventure from London to Capetown. While in Africa she saw how the communities were lacking in motorcycle maintenance skills, which were needed for vital services. In a bold move, Claire moved to Mwanza, Tanzania in 2016 to set up Africa’s First Women’s Motorcycle Maintenance Workshop, called Pikilily. Here she has helped groups such as midwives learn the skills they need that make the difference in the projects being a lasting success.

The Helping Hand — Graham Field, motorcycle adventure travel author and co-host on ARR RAW is in Tanzania helping out Claire with Pikilily. He shares what he’s been up to at the motorcycle shop.

Christopher Venter 

In 2013, Christopher Venter went on an adventure on a 150cc LML Vespa scooter with three other riders. They had set out on a charity ride for a local children’s hospital. His 32,000 km trip took him from Cape Town, South Africa to Dublin, Ireland, with some detours along the way. An illness he contracted while riding in Africa meant he had to make some changes to his route as he sought medical attention. And then being the adventurer that he was, he continued the trip, even though he still felt some of the effects of the illness. When Christopher completed the trip, and he was still not feeling well, he again sought medical help. After much testing, Christopher received some startling news and his life was forever changed. The outcome could have been very different, but Christopher’s story gives us all hope that any challenge can be met with the right attitude.

According to the Motorcycle Council of NSW, Inc in Australia, the symptoms of fatigue for drivers of enclosed vehicles may differ from a fatigued motorcyclist. It’s important to recognize these signs.

*Driver Fatigue Symptoms include:

•loss of concentration
•drowsiness, yawning
•slow reactions
•sore or tired eyes
•boredom
•feeling irritable and restless
•making fewer and larger steering corrections
•missing road signs
•having difficulty in staying in the lane
•having microsleeps.

*The symptoms of rider fatigue include:

•joint and muscle stiffness
•pain or weakness in hands and feet
•loss of concentration
•slow or impaired judgment and reactions.

*Excerpts taken from http://roadsafety.mccofnsw.org.au/a/50.html

And the scary thing is that although a rider may feel fully awake, they may actually be fatigued without realizing it, and make a judgement error, resulting in crashing on a curve or an accident while overtaking another vehicle.

Because riding a motorcycle is different than riding a car, in that it is more demanding both mentally and physically, it’s likely you’ll be tired from the physical challenges rather than boredom.

So how to beat this? Who better to ask than four people who ride motorcycles and have experience in dealing with fatigue: a scientist, a pillion, a racer and a long distance rider.

Guests on this episode:

Sam Marcora
A Director of Research at Kent University and a motorcyclist, in 2013 Sam Marcora studied fatigue in motorbike riders on a 3 month ride from London to Beijing and through Central Asia and Tibet.
www.kent.ac.uk/sportsciences/staff/academic/s-marcora.html

Christophe Barriere Varju
An endurance rider and a Motocross Champion, Christophe Barrier Varju has ridden in the Dakar Rally several times, the toughest and most dangerous motorsport race in the world. He’s the subject in an award winning film, Dream Racer, about running the Dakar. 
www.dreamracer.tv

Shirley Hardy-Rix
A pillion rider, Shirley, along with her husband Brian Rix, is the author of three books. She has travelled the world two up on a BMW with Brian and they have just completed their third trip and are now planning their fourth.

Nick Sanders
An adventure motorcyclist and author, Nick Sanders is best known for his extreme motorcycle trips. Nick has ridden around the world 7 times, has motorcycled the length of the Americas 8 times and holds a record for a “double transit from Alaska to Ushuaia and back in 46 days.

Dimitrios Tournas was born in Greece, moved to the Netherlands when he was 29 and now lives in the United States. If you’ve seen the movie Yes Man, starring Jim Carrey, then you’ve already got a pretty good insight in to Dimitri. Although he is more sensible about the lengths he will go to, he does like to seize opportunities to complete tasks that are achievable. 

In 2004, when visiting Greece he had a motorcycle accident that left him with the realization that life was not infinite, and that even if you don’t take risks, and live your life cautiously, the day will come when you may be at the end of your life looking back. 

Although the accident deterred him from riding for many years, his interest in it didn’t evaporate. When he moved to the United States his passion was reignited and it set him on the path to expanding his comfort zone. He once again took up riding, and he purchased a dual sport motorcycle. When he saw a GS Trophy poster at the BMW dealership, even with no off-road riding experience, he decided to sign up for a riding school course with his sights set on competing in the challenging adventure.

With an impressive bucket list and the willingness to put himself out there and try just about anything, you won't hear Dimitri say the words “no” or “can’t do”, without due consideration.

ARR RIDER SKILLS: Hand Strength & Stamina

Instructor: Bret Tkacs
Having a strong grip is an important part of motorcycle riding to ensure you have proper control when it comes to the front brake, clutch and throttle. And when we stop riding for the season in the winter, or for other reasons, we need to make sure to maintain the strength in our hands, or when it comes time to ride again, you may experience weakness or hand cramping, especially in heavy traffic or when riding off-road. Bret Tkacs explains how to maintain your hand strength in the off season and how it affects your riding.

Episodes that Inspired, Educated or Made us Laugh

The end of the calendar year is when we often take the time to reflect on the past year and look ahead to what we hope to accomplish. Reflections can help us choose and plan goals, as we think about events and achievements in the year that has just passed. So, of course, we looked through the episodes we’ve produced this year, the guests we’ve had on and had a great time listening to excerpts from some of the shows. We’ve learned a lot, felt sad at times, have been inspired, and even laughed out loud at some of the stories we’ve heard. It’s been a rewarding year for us and we hope you’ve enjoyed the variety of podcast topics. 
We’re grateful to all our guests for sharing their stories, and we can’t pick our favourites, well, because we just like them all! But, we’re going to share a few with you to reflect on what a great year 2017 has been.

David Woodburn is from Australia, and he’s been doing trips on a motorcycle since he was 17 years old. In 1986 he met Emy in the Philippines, where they worked together doing volunteer work. They married, returned to Australia and managed to pull together enough money to buy a well used motorcycle. Soon Amy discovered she was pregnant, and their daughter, Mattea was born. Finding it difficult to find work, the loaded their motorcycle with a sidecar and started their journey in 1990. They travelled around Europe and Africa until Mattea was 11 years old, and ended up settling in Miami, Florida, which was the biggest culture shock for them. Now almost two decades later, they live in Georgia and run an independent workshop specializing in older BMW and British motorcycles.

20 Years of Horizons Unlimited: Grant & Susan Johnson

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Horizons Unlimited, a resource for adventure travellers, especially motorcyclists. Founded in 1997 by Grant and Susan Johnson, their website, forum and events around the world, inspire people to follow their dreams and travel to far away places.

Grant and Susan have touched so many people, making a huge difference in their lives, bringing like-minded people together. They’ve travelled extensively themselves, riding around the world 2-up. Through their experience and knowledge, they have created an invaluable resource for novice and experienced riders alike. A place where you can learn, ask questions, share information, help other riders, and tell your travel stories to people who are more than happy to hear about them.

And after 20 years of being an integral part of the motorcycle community, we asked just a few of the many riders who have been inspired by Horizons Unlimited to tell their story about how they have been influenced by HU and Grant and Susan. It’s the least we can do, as we are so grateful to have found them, and to have had both of them on our shows, and Grant as a regular co-host on RAW.

On behalf of all riders, travellers and adventurers who feel fortunate to have found you: Thank you, Grant and Susan!

It’s commonly said that you need to slow down to see more while travelling, well how about speeding up to see more? Helen Lloyd has done just that. She’s an engineer in the UK who loves travel, writing and photography. And she’d spent much time travelling on a bicycle until she decided to get a motorcycle. After riding through Africa on her bicycle she returned years later on a Yamaha XT225, and she discovered that moving faster meant slowing down. She shares with us how motorcycle travel changed her experience of Africa.

ARR RIDER SKILLS: Turning Around on Your Motorcycle

Everyone at some point runs in to the situation where they have to make a tight u-turn or turn around, in both high and low traction situations. Tight turns can be unnerving and dropping a bike is a strong possibility when attempting to turn your bike around. We discuss some simple methods using rider skills we’ve already talked about in previous episodes that help you turn around without coming to a complete stop and backing up.
