THE PROTEGES

There aren’t too many feelings that compare to the excitement of getting a new motorcycle. I’d spent my teenage years earning hardly enough money to afford some old, shit bikes, but once I cracked that first new machine at the age of 21 – a 1996 KX250 – there was no turning back. I was […]

MOTONOMAD III – IT’S A WRAP

Devote all your time, effort and thoughts into a project and eventually there’ll be a tipping point where you’re drawn into your own idea like a passenger on a crazy ride.

MOTONOMAD III – WEEK 3, ARGENTINA

Live on a bike for 20-days straight and everything about riding becomes more instinctive.

For me, it’s a necessary evil I’ve had to accept in order to obtain the funding or support needed to fulfil aspirations beyond my means. […]

NAXOS – KTM 1090 Adventure R

I’ve lost count of how many, but if I look back at all the different bikes I’ve ridden and raced around the world, nearly all of them have been under 500cc. And, most of those rides have been pretty adventurous in one way or another. So, I guess you could say I’ve been an “Adventure Rider” […]
