    The Pack Track - 9 Years Motorcycling The World

    The Pack Track - 9 Years Motorcycling The World

    Janell and Stuart Clarke are both engineers and both enjoyed travelling and exploring the Australian outback by four wheel drive having so much fun that they decided to explore the world. So they began dreaming and planning a trip, but it soon became apparent to them that the cost of using a four wheel drive would deeply cut in to their budget. Then the idea of using motorcycles came up and that seemed like a plan they could sink their teeth into. Soon they were on the road, two bikes and a dog on the trip of a lifetime. Nine years later, they are still travelling from country to country and having picked up some passengers it’s now five of them on two motorcycles - still exploring the world.

    RIDER SKILLS: Easy Lesson Makes Sand Riding Fun on ADV Motorcycles - Chris Birch

    Chris Birch thinks that sand really gets a bad rap and that riding in sand is fun, not just for him but for all riders. And if you disagree, it could be that you either need to tweak your skills or perhaps you’ve missed one of the fundamentals of riding in sand. Time after time, Chris teaches riders to have fun in the sand, not just survive, but have fun. So, if you fear sand or you struggle in it, this episode of RIDER SKILLS should make it so that the next time you see sand through your visor, you’ll anticipate it with a smile on your face.

    Circling Back to the Motorcycle: Patrick Cheever

    Circling Back to the Motorcycle: Patrick Cheever

    When Patrick Cheever was about seven years old his dad brought home a moped, and Patrick thought it was a dream machine. He racked up mile after mile riding the moped back and forth in his driveway and around the yard. And that sealed it for him, he fell in love with riding motorcycles. And so it continued, riding, fixing, buying and selling, until something happened, not to Patrick but to people close to him. It made him question the safety of riding a motorcycle, so he walked away from the internal combustion engine and began riding his mountain bike because it was safer, or so he thought. In hindsight, he realized that he had never really let motorcycling go, and this is his story of leaving and then returning to the motorcycle.

    Leaving The Motorcycles Behind - Tom Medema

    Leaving The Motorcycles Behind - Tom Medema

    Why would anyone ride a motorcycle to an exotic location in a faraway place and then just leave the bike behind? To date, there are about 175 riders who have done just that. They’ve ridden these motorcycles on epic motorcycle adventures in which they traverse sand, mud, tough ground, through streams and even over mountains to deliver the motorcycles to park rangers working in underfunded areas. The ceremonial hand-off of the new motorcycle from the adventure rider philanthropist to park ranger is an emotional affair that is so powerful that it draws some of these riders back, year after year. And the great thing about it is that you could be going next.

    It was something he dreamed of doing, something on his bucket list. Brett Anderson was going to ride his motorcycle to Ushuaia one day, perhaps in retirement when he had more time. Brett had a busy life filled with outdoor pursuits such as hiking, running, motorcycling, and he also worked as an international commercial airline pilot. He was active, physically fit and busy. Then suddenly he got sick and everything changed when he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. But rolling over and accepting defeat is not Brett Anderson, in fact that diagnosis was what fuelled Brett to focus on his bucket list - Ushuaia by motorcycle.

    RIDER SKILLS: Motorcycle Wrestling - Clinton Smout

    RIDER SKILLS: Motorcycle Wrestling - Clinton Smout

    Rolling along a trail or down the road on a motorcycle emanates a sense of grace and precision, but when the rolling slows to a stop that same motorcycle suddenly feels like a pig. And trying to move it around while standing beside it quickly become a wrestling match, or more over,  a mismatch as you try to shove and pull the hefty two wheeled behemoth while it seems to do it’s best to oppose your every effort and flops down on the ground. On this exclusive Adventure Rider Radio RIDER SKILLS segment,  we learn the methods of the pros on moving a motorcycle while standing beside it, all the while making it look like a well balanced bicycle, with you taking control.

RacerRoo ,

One of my go to podcasts for escape and inspiration.

Consider I am a thrifty V-Strom riding DIYer; yet I have on at least a couple occasions sent a support donation their way.

Great content that entertains, educated, inspires, and creates dreams. One day when the kids are more independent, I plan on adventures worth of an interview I hope.

Haven’t done a long motorcycle trip since my 20s but almost every story I listen to takes me back to that or stimulates my current motorcycle life revival.
Thanks for your great work in our community Jim! And thanks to all the people that contribute to the show!

Highly recommend!

Rider skills - very helpful

Some people learn by reading, others need hands-on experience. I find listening works well for me, and Jim’s regular series on Rider Skills is very helpful in giving me tips to think about, and listening to them allows me to imagine myself following the practice challenges. Works for me!

PG BC ,
