In Search of Yetis

Ever tried riding your dirt bike on snow? It’s good fun. Doing donuts, falling off, laughing at your friends. However, you won’t get far. And it’s hardly going to catch on as the next big thing in snow sport.Riding my motorcycle is becoming increasingly miserable as winter arrives here in Canada. I needed to try a more appropriate sport to…

Electric Powered Odyssey

It has been said that electric motorcycles are the future. Now Thomas Tomczyk has proven that future is already here. Tomczyk, a journalist and adventurer, has ridden his Zero S motorcycle from Philadelphia, PA, to Cape Froward, Chile—the very tip of South America. This 27,882 kilometer journey is not only the longest ride on an electric motorcycle in history, but…

Tiny Bikes: Big Change

It was a warm afternoon in Flagstaff, and we were sitting on the patio of one of the best BBQ joints in Northern Arizona enjoying some of the local brew. Both of us had a little adventure travel under our belts as well as the tendency to move around a lot. We had a deep love of motorcycles. Josh grew…

First Ride Up the Divide

Aspects of adventure motorcycling are becoming a rapidly expanding “sport,” populated by a diverse cross section of individuals. But many new riders in our growing ADV community are victims of their own imagined limitations. They’re drawn in by round-the-world trips and far-flung adventures, but end up never making it farther than the local Starbucks. What about these riders and non-riders…

A Rumble With Mother Nature

There’s an uncommon sense of freedom associated with not having to ride anywhere in particular. In search of that feeling, I set off on a 20,000-mile meandering journey around our fair continent—a journey that included the crown jewel, a run to the Arctic Circle. Before my departure, Suzuki HQ happened to be in contact with us about the release of…

Get Out to Garrapata

On Thanksgiving Day 2010, while most of us were enjoying our turkey and stuffing, Ben Glattstein set off on a mission to cross the Pacific Ocean solo in a small single-engine airplane. It was a mission he wouldn’t complete. Shortly after takeoff a load shift caused his plane to spiral out of control and Ben lost his life. As sad…

Living A Dream

We adventure riders always push the limits, be it riding a few thousand miles in a couple of hours or taking that fully loaded, heavily farkled BMW 1200 on a mountain goat trail where failure means instant death from falling off a 1000 foot cliff. For me the limit was entering a desert race. For 46 years the Stump Jumpers…

Exploring Japan by Motorbike

In the short time we’ve been here, I’ve learned just how much more I enjoy riding my motorcycle through this country than most other places. Why’s that? Well, despite an unfortunate lack of single-track (for safety reasons, of course) the roads are fantastic. And, because motorcycles are readily available, food and rest are convenient, and the highways corkscrew throughout the…

A Jewel in Atacama's Crown

My motorcycle is many things. She’s so much more than my trusty steed—she’s my home, an unbelievable icebreaker, a “Get out of Jail Free Card” and sometimes a swift little lifesaver. She is decidedly my ticket to travel, enlightenment, and empowerment. Without her, I’d have a gaping hole in my soul—a chunk eaten away like the hungry bite from of…
