    Ride and Talk - #31 Chris Northover – one crazy dude!

    What can we say about Chris Northover? Ruthlessly enthusiastic? Definitely! Lives and breathes motorcycling? Without a doubt! In fact, our ‘Make Life a Ride’ tagline could certainly have been written with him in mind, because goofing around on bikes literally is his life.

    You’ll probably know him from that famous ‘Storm the Embassy’ YouTube short film, or perhaps you’ve seen him in various BMW Motorrad videos. Either way, his laid-back personality, love of riding challenges and all-round ‘joie de vivre’ is infectious. Listen to Chris talking about his wacky life on two wheels, Northover-style…

    Ride and Talk - #30 Michael Martin – extreme adventure!

    Ride and Talk - #30 Michael Martin – extreme adventure!

    Michael Martin is a man of many talents: photographer, geographer, author, documentary producer and inspirational presenter on the incredible world we inhabit. He’s made numerous motorcycle expeditions to the most remote places imaginable on our earth, in search of stunning landscapes, the wonders of nature and even the people living life on the edges of existence.

    As you can imagine, the world’s changed beyond all recognition in the four decades he’s been exploring its vast expanses, including the Sahara, the Atacama and even Antarctica, but one thing has remained constant – his preferred method of travel to take him and all his equipment to the ‘back of beyond’. Can you guess exactly what he rides?

    Ride and Talk - #28 Richard Millington – time to ride together and explore our world again!

    With travel restrictions lifting, all of us are looking forwards to riding again and it’s hard to beat group motorcycle touring as the perfect way to discover new horizons. But what does it take to create and deliver unforgettable riding experiences to those with a passion for motorcycle travel?

    To find out, we speak to Richard Millington from official travel partner BMW Motorrad Tours. In this latest episode, he tells us why it’s well worth letting the experts help plan the ideal post-lockdown touring adventure, from exotic short breaks, to peg-scraping blasts, to relaxed long-distance tours perfect for riders and their pillions.

    Ride and Talk - #27 Berlin Plant – look what’s rolling off the production lines!

    As you’ll no doubt have heard, production has now started at #bmwplantberlin on the new R 18 model series, which we’re all so excited about. And while the ever-popular factory tours aren’t up and running just yet, we thought it would be a good time to take you behind the scenes at the plant, where at peak times, a shiny new BMW bike rolls off the assembly lines every 65 seconds.

    Join Andy Dukes as he chats with BMW Motorrad Berlin Plant’s head of maintenance and innovation manager Ronald Sommer, who joined him on the line direct from the factory.

    Ride and Talk - #26 Aldo Kane – #NeverStopChallenging

    This episode, we chat with former Royal Marine Commando, climber, diver, extreme environment expert and BMW Motorrad ambassador Aldo Kane, who loves a challenge. He’s rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, abseiled into active volcanoes, been held at gunpoint by narcos, and even been charged by a black Rhino while training anti-poaching teams.

    But what does @aldokane like to do when he’s not leading extreme expeditions into the jungle, desert or mountains? He loves to ride BMW bikes – and talk about them of course. Listen and be inspired to another one of our lockdown chats.
