TAMP Season 2 Episode 3 Northern Trip Part II
We are back again, apologising again, but ill health, all good now, and a broken laptop have conspired against us, but here we are...
In this episode we de-brief our recent trip around the north of England to celebrate Greg's 40th, (I know! Doesn't he look older!)which is captured in the marvelous film which accompanies this podcast -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAXg6xfw-YI
We definitively decide which is the best bike, maybe not, and Noel forgets his golden rules for camping, but then remembers it's all about not changing your underpants.
Do podcasts really get any better?
TAMP Season 2 Episode 2 Northern Trip Part I
It's been a while, sorry for being a bit useless. Life is very busy despite lock-down... This is part one of the story of our cancelled trip to the Spanish Pyrenees, where we went to the north east and west of our own fair island. Fun was had, beer was drunk, bikes were discussed, disaster was averted. Love was shown to the KTM 125 EXC (even by Noel) and Star Wars. Ever wondered what blokes talk about around a campfire? It's probably less interesting than you think. (CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE)
TAMP Season 2 Episode 1 Cumbria TRF Oral Histories Part 1
We're back for season 2, sorry, it's been a while. But we think you are going to like this one. We witter on for a bit before handing over to Steve Stout and some very long standing members of Cumbria TRF, Steve and Roger, who have been riding since the sixties, before the birth of the TRF. They tell us about their earliest riding experiences and some great stories from over 50 years of trail riding. This is part 1, more to follow, not sure how many, depends on when the stories run out...
TAMP Episode 9 With Helen Lloyd
We are really happy to welcome serial traveler Helen Lloyd to the podcast for this the 9th Trail and Adventure Motorbike Podcast. Helen has ridden on nearly all the continents and has published two great books on her travels by bicycle through Africa and along the Road of Bones to Magadan, before she saw the light and got a bike with an engine. Helen has managed to achieve an enviable, sustainable life where she can spend most of her time on the road. Find out how she manages it...
TAMP Episode 8 With Chris Bone
Chris Bone talks us through his amazing 5 month trip from Yorkshire to the southern most tip of south Africa, crossing 25 countries. Whilst not swimming with crocodiles, nor meeting the Christmas vacationing gorillas, nonetheless Chris tells some great stories like the ones where he ignored some machete wielding 'amateur bandits' and ran away from a drunken immigration official. We get to the bottom of daily life on the road in Africa and ponder the continuing existence of old overland motorbikes.
TAMP Episode 7 With Tim Cooper
In this episode we welcome, or I should say I welcome, as poor Noel is sick, Tim Cooper of 'UKJeeper' fame. Tim has recently ridden 11,000 miles in 6 weeks across the Trans America Trail. Amongst the many top TAT tips Tim tells us (t'alliteration!) how he flew with his bike to Canada and back for not much more money than the price I was recently quoted to get my bike shipped from Manchester to southern Spain! I hope you enjoy it, if you did, please let us have any feedback on our Facebook page. Cheers.
