    Hi there!

    I've been riding motorcycles for the last 20 years and I have ridden in 40 countries across the globe. I have done two major trips in the last few years. The first one was across all of Latin America (35,000 miles, 20 Countries, 12 months - here is the ride report) and the other one two-up across Africa (10 countries, 13,000 miles, 5+ months - here is the ride report). I have also ridden around Europe, US and a couple of countries in Asia. Finally I am a certified off-road motorcycle instructor.

    I just started an email course (free for Advriders of course) on everything you need to know for your Big Trip. The course will contain practical information on how to make your motorcycle travel dream a reality.

    It will be an intro course covering: documents, bike preparation, camping gear, tool kit, emergency kit and much more. I'm working on additional courses that will cover all topics on motorcycle travel including funding your trip, off-road riding, life on the road etc.

    The course will be all online.

    If you are interested then you can sign-up here: http://motorcycletravel.info

    The first two lessons are up. You will get the first one once you sign up and the next one 2 days later.

    Thank you!
    Salvador

    P.S. More than 600 people already took the course and the feedback has been very positive!

    seeing as how this bug has been biting hard the last few months, yes, as this is something i keep dreaming about and well, my luck, means i overlook something important every time.

    The theory does not help you have to actiuly praktice how to fix a flat tire, how to change wheel bearings or adjuste the valves of your bike etc..

    I'm in. Just posted up my plans for this summer. Done plenty of Moto traveling/camping but there is always more to learn and other perspectives to consider. Thanks Salvador for taking the time.
