It’s 2015 and the road is calling. We’ve only been home for two years but it’s time for another adventure.
More than a decade ago we packed up the motorcycle, shipped it to London and then spent nearly a year riding home. That ride took us through Europe, Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Asia – more than 57,000 kilometres through 27 countries.
Back in 2011 we packed up our motorcycle again and sent it on the high seas to South America. For the next 16 months we rode from the bottom of South America to the tip of Alaska with side trips to Antarctica and the Galapagos. We flew the bike to Europe. Our plans to ride home were thwarted by the Arab spring. Riding through North Africa was difficult to so we flew the bike to South Africa, spent a couple of months there and then headed home More than 84,000 kilometres through 32 countries.
We’ve now visited every continent on earth, but there are still plenty of roads left to ride.
So we’re off again.
This time the bike is being shipped to Greece. From there we’ll ride through Eastern Europe, up into Scandinavia, then across Russia, through the Stans, Mongolia and Siberia – well that’s the plan.
Weather will dictate the length of this journey. We’ll need to be out of Siberia before the winter begins to claw its way into the area. We should be home in October.
