The Voice of Moto Travel

Nov 12, 2015

On October 28, 2015, the National Insurance Crime Bureau released a report on United States motorbike thefts.  In 2014, there was a total of 42,856 thefts reported, compared to 45,367 in 2013, a decrease of six percent. Great news, especially as motorcycle sales increased by four percent in the same period.

 

The top 5 motorcycle stolen (by manufacturer):

1. Honda

2. Yamaha

3. Suzuki

4. Kawasaki

5. Harley Davidson

 

Most motorcycle thefts occurred in August (4965) and the fewest were in February (1978) indicating a weather influenced pattern, which remains consistent with previous years.

 

With the cost of many motorcycle models now being $20,000 US or more, they have become a valuable target for thieves. The stolen bikes are either sold whole, stripped down for parts resale or reconstructed in to another motorcycle. Many parts, including frames, can be easily altered and reused. As such, there is a low recovery rate for stolen motorcycles, approximately 25-30 percent.

 

Wanting some great answers on bike security, we figured the best place to turn to were the people who ride, the experts who have travelled to many different destinations in the world, and who would have the experience first hand on how to protect your motorcycle and gear from thieves.

 

Sam Manicom is an adventurer and author that has travelled extensively. He completed an eight year and 200,000 mile (322,000 km) motorcycle adventure around the world, through 55 countries.

Graham Field has been travelling for over 25 years. Overland motorcycle travel is his passion. He’s travelled around the world, and has written several books about his experiences.

Grant Johnson is a world traveller and co-founder of Horizons Unlimited, an information hub for motorcycle travel.

Shirley Hardy Rix & Brian Rix have been on several extended motorcycle adventures around the world and are the authors of several books.

Pan-American, Motorcycles & Friends - Good Things Come in Threes

 

This is a story about friendship, trust and adventure. Steve Mason, Raymond Danton and Wilson Hutchison were friends and biking buddies in Southwest Scotland in their teens. They eventually drifted apart to different lives, as many of us do, living in different countries. After over 30 years, a chance encounter brings these friends back together and they once again begin doing bike trips together. After a few short adventures, they decide they are ready for something bigger and they take on the Pan-American Highway in February 2015. After about 5 months and 34,000 km (22,000 m) they still remain good friends with great memories and stories to tell.

Africa Motorcycle Diaries - Spencer Conway

 

In November, 2009, Spencer Conway left for a 9 month journey around Africa on his Yamaha XT660. His journey was documented by Diesel Films in partnership with the Discovery Channel. Although he was followed around by the film company for parts of the trip, they were not allowed to offer any assistance as the trip was to be completely solo and without a support team. The plan was to complete the tour and raise money for Save the Children UK for it’s projects in Africa. He experienced a great deal on this trip, being shot at by armed bandits, stoned by angry villagers and being robbed.

 

Much has come of the adventure including a book that he is in the process of writing and a six episode programme on UK and Europe TV this November on the Travel Channel.

Some go for a few months, some for a few years. Scotty Kerekes has been living on the road for twenty-one years. What started out as a soul searching experience turned in to a lifestyle for him. After being on the road for a year, Scotty realized that there was no turning back. He ended up selling everything he owned except for what fit on his bike, and hit the road… for good.

Scotty tells us what it’s like to live on the road, he is very candid about the hardships and highlights of his experiences. He talks about finding places to sleep, finances, the social aspect, relationships and more. It’s what some would perhaps consider an eccentric gypsy lifestyle, but for Scotty, and for a lot of us who dare to dream and dare to do, it just feels… right.

Cultural Speed Bumps

 

In Pakistan, women’s mobility in public is a major social issue. There are socially sanctioned rules which indicate how a woman may sit as a passenger on a motorcycle. But, Zenith Irfan, a 20 year old female student in Pakistan, has become a heroin to women who want to have the independence and choice to ride a motorcycle. Zenith says that there is a social taboo for women motorcycle riders in Pakistan, but one of her goals is to stop the gender stereotyping and encourage Pakistani women to follow their dreams. 

 

Inspired by her father’s unrealized dream to travel the world by motorcycle, and encouraged by her liberal mother, Zenith travelled the treacherous terrain of the Pak-occupied Kashmir belt in northern Pakistan on a solo motorcycle adventure for one week. 

 

She is an icon for women riders around the world, crossing barriers and making the choice to… just ride no matter what.

She’s been visiting Big Things and finding funky letterboxes all over Australia. She documents and posts photos of her great findings on her website for all of us to enjoy. Jacqui has, as she says herself, a sense for the ridiculous.

Sherri Jo Wilkins 

Because I Can World Tour

 

Sherri Jo was born in the United States and had always longed to travel the world. Her first adventure was when she joined a group sailing from Australia to Tonga on a yacht. She was bit by the travel bug and longed for another adventure. Being a Harley rider for many years in the United States, she decided that the next adventure should be on a motorcycle and embarked on a solo trip around the world. She rode out of South Australia on her KTM 690 Endure R in June 2010 and didn’t return until September 2013. After over 3 years on a motorcycle trip, Sherri has some great tips and views on travelling solo.

Jolandie Rust 

 

After circumnavigating Africa, Jo Rust doesn’t know the meaning of taking a break. She’s now training to try to be the first female on the South Africa team at the BMW GS Trophy in 2016. She’s an off-road instructor and been appointed a BMW Ambassador. Oh, and did we mention she also runs the BMW GS Trophy Fans page and BMW GS Girls? They say if you want something done, give it to a busy person… well Jo is certainly a busy person and she gets things done! 

 

Spokes vs Cast with T.G. “Woody” Witte

 

When we decided to do a tech piece on spoke vs cast wheels, we asked around a bit, and the name that kept coming up was Woody from Woody’s Wheel Works in Denver, Colorado. They’ve been around since 1973 and that certainly says something about their expertise and qualifications. Woody is known for the incredibly strong spoke wheels he builds for Dakar racers, show cruisers and solar powered vehicles. On this show we talk about the difference between spoke and cast wheels and their applications, we learn how to check spoked wheels to ensure safe and proper operations and to know when they need service. And when you might want to use a spoked wheel over a cast wheel.

Against all Odds

Bernard Smith was told it was too dangerous to take a blind woman around the world. But, with Bernard as her pilot, Cathy Birchall was the first blind woman to circle the world by motorcycle. They rode their old BMW motorcycle, covering 25,000 miles, experiencing many breakdowns and along the way discovering the kindness and generosity of strangers. This is truly an inspirational story of love, humanity and survival against the odds.

Dream Racer

 

Christophe Barriere-Varju

 

The Dakar Rally is the world’s toughest off-road endurance race, an annual event where racers push themselves to the limit to compete in what has been said to be the most dangerous race, with great challenges in extreme conditions. And Christophe Barriere-Varju has been one of those die-hard competitors, having been in the Dakar Rally four times, both in Africa and in South America. Christophe speaks with Jim Martin about being in this incredible international race, and tells us about the award winning film “Dreamracer”, the true story about Christophe and his motorbike in the Dakar Rally.

Ian Coates - No Map, No Plan, No Worries

Ian Coates - Ian Coates - No Map, No Plan, No Worries

 

Hailing from Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, England, in 1999 Ian Coates left on a four month trip on his 1991 Honda Africa Twin motorcycle. 240,000 miles and 14 years later, 70 year old Ian finally returned home. He visited almost every country in the world, travelling solo on his motorcycle with no GPS. Ian doesn’t just drive through as though on a mission, he takes the time to experience the cultures, people and lay of the land by spending time exploring without a map and without watching the clock or calendar. Ian is a man of wit and patience. He has an incredible way of looking at things and, well you’ll need to listen to this episode to understand what we mean. 

 

You can contact Ian at coatesian@hotmail.com.

Finding Good People of The World


Ramona Schwartz

Born in East Germany, travel writer and photographer Ramona Schwartz grew up under Communist dictatorship and only knew freedom when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989. She railed against a conventional life style, living the typical rat race many of us do. And when presented with the opportunity to travel around the world on a motorcycle, she jumped at the chance. First she learned to ride a motorcycle and then she set off with her boyfriend on a KTM and didn’t look back. She travelled for 6 years around the world, and to this day is still adventuring with her husband, Herbert with two kids in tow in the side car.
