Apologies for the late Photo of the Week post. This week’s featured photo was sent in by @HpiRally of him and his wife in the Austrian Alps. He writes …

In 2012 I was injured at work. I spent over 100 days in the hospital and was told numerous times I would never walk or ride a motorcycle again. I set a goal of doing all the trips I ever wanted to and prove the medical world wrong. In 2017 my wife and I flew to Italy and rented a 2016 BMW R1200GS, we have a GSA stateside, and rode Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Liechtenstein in a dream trip of mine. We hit all of the major passes like Grimsel, Splugen, Furka, Stelvio and list goes on. It was an amazing time and we can’t wait to go back! This photograph was taken at a spot where we had a roadside picnic and just enjoyed the view and moment.

A beautiful photo and moment. The photo was taken with a Canon 6D and a 50mm f1.8. He used a mini Carbon tripod and mobile phone as a remote to trigger the photo. You can see more of their photos at @jtmphotographycolorado, including a very cute motorcycle themed baby announcement, Congratulations from ADVrider.

@CVAN sent us some stunning image of his 2012 BMW R1200GS with a DMC hack in Death Valley, CA earlier this year. The photo was taken with a Fuji XT-2, 16mm, 1/[email protected]/8, ISO200.

@CVAN also shared this photo of the 2007 BMW R1200GS he wrote a few years ago “somewhere in the White Mountains outside of Bishop, CA.”. The photo was taken with a Nikon D700, 17mm, 1/[email protected]/11.

@vanislejay writes about a trip he did on his 2003 Suzuki DL1000 earlier this year

This summer after completing the COBDR north to south I was experiencing some scenery burnout, I didn’t think I was going to see anything as beautiful as the CO mountains on the entire rest of my trip and I still had two weeks left. We cut through Utah on the way to the IDBDR and were not disappointed. My scenery burnout was immediately cured. I don’t normally wear a reflective visor, but I picked one up this season because it was a great deal. I realized by mistake that if I took a selfie I could get a nice reflection shot so I started playing around. This is maybe the photo I am most proud of from my entire trip.

I agree that is some A Grade visor reflection.

@MrKiwi sent this photo from, in my very biased opinion, is one of the most beautiful parts of the world. He writes …

Riding through Haast Pass from Haast to Wanaka. The weather clears as we head towards the main divide with spectacular views in every direction.

If you visit the South Island of New Zealand make sure you visit the Wanaka/Queenstown region. The bike pictured is a 2016 Honda Africa Twin.

@scott_pdx sent in this photo of a group ride near Big Lake in the High Cascades of Oregon. He wrote …

A group of us ADV Riders in the Pacific Northwet Forum get together each year with an open invite to any ADV riders to ride trails, dual sport and adv bikes. The thread and pictures for this event are at


This picture was taken at the Sanitam Pass OHV Area, near Big Lake in the High Cascades of Oregon. Most of these guys have bigger ADV bikes, but use this ride more to polish thier dirt skills due to the cold weather. There will also be a video of this event along with other ADV Rider events on my YouTube channel.

Check it out, a number of them are videos of local ADV events…


@Lunchmeat sent us a photo of his 2015 KTM 500 EXC. He writes …

West side of the Cascade Mountains North of Skykomish Washington. A short detour off the pavement up some steep logging roads and you get a beautiful 180 degree vista of some of the most stunning mountains in the US.

@Grabcon sent us this photo of his 2016 Honda VFR1200X. He writes …

Big Bend National Park on Grapevine Hills Rd on the return trip to pavement. It is a dead end road this is about mid way back on the crest of a nice knoll.

The photo was taken with a Nikon D5100 DSLR Camera, Nikkor 18-70 zoom, Exposure info, ISO 100 F10, Shutter 200

@VtBeemer took this stunning photo in Morocco.

Tichka pass is a mountain pass in Morocco, linking the south-east of Marrakesh to the city of Ouarzazat through the High Atlas mountains. It lies above the great Marrakesh plains, and is a gateway to the Sahara Desert.

@Strongleftleg took this photo of his 2019 KTM 790 Adventure last month in BC. He writes …

British Columbia is a fantastic location for adventure riding and the KTM 790 makes an ideal all-round partner for exploring. This shit was taken on a solo outing near the famous Stave Lake dam. The changing water levels gives different riding opportunities throughout the year, including getting right out in the shallows.

@kimzx1000r sent us a photo of his first Father-Son trip. He wrote …

Father and Son first trip. I have been riding for years and taking trips into our less traveled areas but my son had never been with. I purchased his first street bike from him and kept it around. 1995 KLR 650. He is 39 now and I finally got him to take a trip with me. This is him outside Cripple Creek Colorado riding his old bike with me.
