The Riders.

Jon and Pete.

We’re not professional riders and this trip is not a project run by an official organisation. We have no backup vehicle and the only spares we will be carrying will be those that can fit in the panniers or on the back of the bikes.

At this stage in our lives we don’t have wives to worry about or mortgages to pay, so we figured its now or never! We’re simply two young guys with a mutual love for both travel and motorcycles. We have been good mates since we were in primary school and in 2011 the desire to hit the road just got too much. Bored with the all too frequent “one day”  lines, we decided to finally just get up and get on with it.

Quite honestly, we have no idea what the next 25,000 miles have in store. All we do know is that we will be on the ferry to France no later than the 13th April 2012 with the bikes in whatever condition they may be in at the time.

    • haha, yeah it’s starting to sink in now that we are actually going! to be honest i’ve been so busy preparing the bike that i’ve had little time to think about the actual trip. the bikes are looking awesome now, and we’ve had so much support from various companies. i cant wait to hit the road!

    • Not sure about a big send off to be honest John. It’s looking fairly tight to have everything ready for the departure date, but if we decide to organise something i’ll let you know. keep in touch.
