Back in 2003 we took a grown-up’s ‘gap-year’, leaving work behind for 12 months, shipping our motorcycle to England and riding home through Europe, the Middle East and Asia. This ride took us along the Dalmatian Coast and through Iran, Pakistan, India and Nepal.
Since that time we’ve ridden more than 170,000 kilometres through 68 countries over six continents.
In 2011, when Brian retired we hit the road again, this time shipping our bike to Chile and heading to the bottom of South America and then turning around and heading to Prudhoe Bay, the northern most tip of North America.
That wasn’t enough. Rather than sending the bike home we flew it to Europe and then South Africa to explore more of this wonderful world.
Fast forward to 2015 and there was a gap in our riding experience – right across Russia. So we were off again, shipping the bike to Greece. For the next six months we rode through Europe to Scandinavia, making it to the very tip of Norway – Nordkapp.
From Scandinavia the road took us to Russia and the ‘Stans’, leading us along sections of the old Silk Road and into Siberia.
You can read highlights of our journeys in posts on this web or in more detail in our books – Two for the Road, Circle to Circle and The Long Way to Vladivostok.
We hope we inspire you to hit the road, or just sit back and ride with us, enjoying the ride vicariously.
