Linda Bootherstone Bick - Into Africa With a Smile

Linda Bootherstone-Bick has been travelling around the world for over 50 years on a motorcycle. She's written three books about her adventures, with the newest one being "Into Africa With a Smile". The book is about her trip to Africa in 1974, a time when few people visited Africa, let alone on a motorcycle. She travelled around for 15 months, experiencing numerous breakdowns and even malaria. And despite all the setbacks, she still kept a smile on her face.

Carl Reese - Endurance Rider & Record Setter

You’ve probably heard of the Cannonball Baker or Cannonball Run. In 1933 Erwin George “Cannon Ball” Baker drove from New York City to Los Angeles in a Graham-Paige model 57 Blue Streak 8 in 53.5 hours. No one broke that record for 40 years.

Car and Driver writer Brock Yates and editor Steve Smith organized the Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, which took place 5 times between 1971 and 1979. It was an illegal road race from coast to coast to celebrate the United States Interstate Highway System and to protest strict traffic laws which were coming in to effect at that time. The first run was not a competitive race, as there was only one team running in a 1971 Dodge Custom Sportsman van. But by the time they were running the last race it was known as a wild race. They ran everything from Ferraris to pick-up trucks. It was mostly a secret event, with few witnesses.

As more and more people have tried to rush to break Cannonball Baker’s time, the route has become established and is commonly referred to as the Cannonball Baker or Cannonball Run.

Carl Reese is a contractor from California, and in his spare time he’s an endurance rider that has set seven world records in less than a year. One being the solo motorcycle “Cannonball” from Los Angeles to New York.  Carl Reese set out to break the motorcycle record previously set by George Egloff in 1983, who completed the cross country run in 42 hours. Carl broke the record completing the run in 38 hours and 49 minutes. He’s now working on a documentary that highlights the history of transcontinental driving records.

Proof Positive - Motorcycle Riding Good for the Soul

Anyone who rides a motorcycle can probably tell you that riding a motorcycle isn’t just a form of transportation, it’s an experience. When you return from a motorcycle ride, you are energized and happy. Many motorcyclists refer to riding as their therapy. Feel bad? Need to sort out a problem? Ride. It works. Motorcycle riding releases endorphins which improve moods. Simple as that. 

 

Studies show that riding motorcycles, both on and off-road, have both physical and mental health benefits. 

 

In 2010, Tohoku University in Japan jointly with Yamaha conducted research in to the relationship between brain stimulation and riding motorcycles. Researchers measured brain activity to confirm whether riding a motorcycle activates the PFC, the prefrontal cortex. The PFC has been  linked to a persons planning behaviours, personality development, decision making and social behaviour. Then they examined the effect of using a motorcycle daily. They found that the bilateral PFC was activated when riding a motorcycle and that daily riding is beneficial for improving various cognitive functions and for reducing mental stress. 

 

A study on the “Quality of Life of Recreational Off-Road Riders” in 2010 as published in the Health & Fitness Journal of Canada, concluded that “habitual off-road riders appear to have relatively high physical and mental functioning, possibly as a result of their participation in recreational off-road riding. Both ATV (All Terrain Vehicles) and ORM (Off Road Motorcycle) riders revealed high QOL (Quality of Life) based on their MSC (Mental Component Scale) scores.” and “Overall, off-road riders had higher levels of physical functioning than Canadian population norms”.

Rally Raid’s Honda CB500X Adventure Bike

On this episode we talk about the Rally Raid conversion kit that transforms what is basically a street bike, the Honda CB500X, into what may the ultimate mid-weight adventure bike. The end result seems to impress everyone that comes across it and a quick look at some of the videos on this page have to impress you. With the heart of the beast being an ultra reliable Honda twin cylinder 471cc fuel injected power plant you are melding the Honda reliability with some incredibly well designed suspension pieces manufactured by Rally Raid and Tractive Suspension. Hidden nuggets include a two piston fork that has both high speed and low speed dampening, which is unheard of elsewhere.

“I can confirm that there is no other twin cylinder adventure bike on the market that even comes close to the all-round ability and confidence inspiring handling both on- and off-road that this bike now delivers with the Rally Raid Products upgrades,” says Morgan. “The best analogy I can think of is it rides like an open class rally bike, but with a lower seat and bullet-proof reliability. You will not be disappointed.”’ - Giant Loop press release

Anyone who is in to adventuring in the wilderness will at some time find themselves in remote locations with no communication to the rest of the world. When in the back of beyond, you still have loved ones to consider at home and a responsibility to them and yourself to seek help if something goes wrong. Depending on where you are, you may not readily have outside help available. 

Fortunately, there is a solution to a dilemma or emergency, there is a way to call for help… from above. 

In many locations in the world, there are devices available that make it so that you can have crisis services available, or at the very least you can make contact with someone that can get you help. 

We speak with representatives from Spot and inReach. We also get the take on these products from a retail location at GPS Central and with someone who uses these products regularly on his motorcycle at VRideTV.

After putting almost a million miles on a motorbike as a courier in London, Geoff Thomas decided to pack it in, and in April, 2008, embarked on a motorcycle to travel the world. He took along with him the ashes of his parents to be delivered to his brother in California, while en route. On his return to England in November, 2008, he found that his rented apartment in Essex had burnt down, with all his belongings in it. Left only with his motorcycle and what was packed on it, he just decided to just keep on riding. To save on shipping costs, Geoff keeps a Triumph Tiger 955i in Europe, a Kawasaki KLR 650 in North America and a Tiger Retro 100 in South East Asia, where he also volunteers. Having, what Geoff says is a chronic allergy to most forms of work, he gets by on just $8000 US a year, and says he’s never felt richer.

BestRest CyclePump & EZAir Gauge

David Peterson at BestRest Products has been manufacturing the CyclePump for over 10 years and states “there is no better motorcycle tire inflator available anywhere, at any price”. He’s so sure of that, that he gives a lifetime warranty on the pump. We decided to put the CyclePump and EZAir Gauge to the test for ourselves.

Thom Rieck is an Exercise Specialist at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program. He’s a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Certified Personal Trainer and PEAK Pilates Instructor. He has been working as a personal trainer for over 10 years and he’s also an avid motorcyclist. 

 

Tom has been riding since the age of 2, believe it or not, when his father took him out on his ’74 Honda CB 250 in a car seat. He now rides a 1995 BMW K75S, all on his own.

 

Thom is currently working on a book called “Strength and Fitness for the Motorcyclist”. As an expert in exercise and the effects on the body, who is more qualified to give advice on staying fit to get the most out of riding a motorcycle? Thom says that motorcycles are designed to withstand city commuting, long trips and rough terrain, yet it is our bodies that can limit our riding endurance. His goal is to share his knowledge and experience to become your own personal trainer. He gives great advice about mobility, flexibility, cardiovascular and resistance training for the adventure rider. It isn’t about going to the gym every day, or spending hours working out. He says just taking 20 to 30 minutes a day will mean a longer life and better health. And if you want to be riding as long as you possible can, you might just want to consider Thom’s tips.

Issa & Nita Breibish’s Moto Journey: Getting From A to D

As so often happens in life, we get caught up in what society expects us to do. Get a good education, get a good job, buy a house, have the right furniture, clothes, gadgets… and so on. We are expected to live our life in the “normal” way. In the western culture, if you don’t have the big house and fancy cars, and everything that goes along with it, including debt and stress, well… you just aren’t living. We think we need or want those things, that they will make us happy.
But, as many studies have shown, life experience makes you happier than acquiring material things. Even those experiences which may be uncomfortable to us in the moment, make us feel more fulfilled. We may turn them in to funny stories or see them as a valuable learning experience. And stories, more than material things, are what connect us to other people. Because who doesn’t love a good story?
Issa and Nita Breibish felt that something was missing in their life, and the more they thought about it the more they felt they needed to do something about it. They decided to sell everything and turn their material things in to experiences.  After some planning, they left on a trip which would become an education in life for them. They haven’t rushed from place to place, they have taken the time to spend with the people and cultures they came across. Issa and Nita feel that time spent in one place has more value than tallying up the countries they have visited or how many miles they have travelled. And having had the time of their life, they are ready to hit the road again as soon as they can and to, as Nita says, not worry about getting from A to Z in an allotted time, but just meander from A to D.

Highlights:
- Trip preparation - gear or mind?
- Material things = experience
- Essential gear - how much is too much?
- How to get more out of your trip

Luis Castilla started riding a motorcycle as therapy to help him deal with the death of his parents. It was something he became passionate about and in 2014, Luis and a friend rode from Mexico City to the Arctic Circle and back on BMW motorcycles.

Then in 2015, Luis Castilla entered the Discover More competition with Harley-Davidson. Imagine applying for a job where you get to ride a brand new motorcycle around Europe for three months, and you get paid for it! Not only that but you get to keep the motorcycle at the end of the trip.When Luis entered the contest, he had to submit written and video details to convince the Harley-Davidson team why he should be chosen. And well, with a 1 in 10,000 chance of winning, he must have impressed them.

In this episode, Luis Castilla tells us how riding a motorcycle and his European summer job changed his life.

Jeffrey Polnaja - First Indonesian Motorcyclist to Ride the World

Before Jeffrey started his around the world trip back in 2006, he heard the word “impossible” over and over again.
Jeffrey comes from a country where solo world travel isn’t readily embraced by their culture, and travel is more often done in groups. The Indonesian Rupiah currency is very low in value compared to the US dollar. And people told him with the time needed, the distance he would cover, cultural differences and the natural challenges, that it was a far fetched idea and that it was an unattainable dream.
A solo motorcycle trip around the world seemed absurd to many people in Indonesia, but Jeffrey had other plans. And the more people told him it was futile, the more determined he became.
He slowly gained support through some friends and was sponsored by an adventure gear company for some camping and riding gear. But, after five years of planning and trying to get the financial support he needed to make his journey, he made the decision to sell his company. Then in 2006, with just a basic knowledge of English, and limited funds, he set off on his “Ride For Peace” journey on his GS Adventure.
Jeffrey’s trip was inspired by his son enquiring about why there was so much unjust conflict in the world after 9/11. He wanted to experience the world and different cultures, and to discover for himself the good and the desire for peace that most people have. He found that you don’t need to have any special skills to take on such an adventure, that any ordinary person can do it. You just need an open mind.
After 7 years of riding, Jeffrey is back in Indonesia to enlighten people as to what he has found on the road, but he isn’t finished his ride yet, and plans to head out again soon.

Ride More Often, Take An Off-Road Course...What's Your New Year's Resolution?

People everywhere are bringing in the New Year, some with firecrackers, foods or drinks. Some exchange gifts or make resolutions to improve themselves.

At Adventure Rider Radio, we have started a custom of looking back at the inspiring stories and expert tech & riding advice we have heard in the past year. In this episode, we revisit just a few of the many great shows and guests we have featured, such as Sam Manicom, Ted Simon, Alex Chacon, Graham Hoskins, Doris Wiedemann, Scotty Kerekes, Ed March & Rachel Lasham, just to name a few. 

As we wrap up 2015, we thank all of you, our listeners, our guests and our sponsors. Wherever in the world you are, whatever your customs and traditions... dare to dream and always take the high road.

It's been a pleasure and we look forward to another fantastic year to come.

Spanish Motorcycle Explorer

 

Alicia Sornosa is the first Spanish woman to ride around the world on a motorcycle. She lives to ride and travel, and says life is short and that the world is big, so she wants to explore and see as much of the world as she possibly can. In 2011 she left Spain, started out in Africa, then travelled on to India, Australia, United States, Canada and through Alaska, finishing off in Tierra del Fuego. This first part of her world trip gave her a thirst for travel and adventure. And Alicia continued to realize her dreams of travel when she travelled between Spain and Japan in 2014. She continues to thrive through motorcycle travel and plans to continue travelling as she sets out on another adventure very soon.
