Motorcycle rides beyond Asia

My riding is often in Asia now because for too long I focused travelling to Europe. My first overseas trip was to the UK as a clueless backpacker. I returned a couple years later and purchased a camper van and drove around western Europe a couple of months. Not sure what I was hoping to find there but I returned more times. In between this I went to USA and Canada but totally ignored Asia. I think I like many people in Australia I had a preconceived negative image of our neighboring countries – something I see still exists today.


2018 Oman – Not a place that would be on many peoples ride list but I have long wanted to go after finding out that it has good riding and dramatic landscapes.

2018 South Africa – A destination that I have always put in the too hard basket due to combination of cost, distance and security concerns – well I reached the point that it was time to go.

2017 Balkans – Never one to listen to good advice, I was told to visit the Balkans instead of mainstream western Europe many times – and those people were right, its better.

2016 Sicily – Took 15 years from when I first made plans for visiting Sicily to finally get there. I had a wonderful time, the people were great and the food heavenly.

2016 Spain – Andalucía was amazing motorcycle riding and Spain is a fantastic travel destination. Cannot believe I missed visiting here on my extended travels around Europe when I was young. The alps are famous for riding but I would say Spain is better. 

2015 Ireland – I had some challenging conditions to deal with on this ride, both weather and an injury which combined to really get the better of me but it is such a beautiful place.

2012 USA and Canada – One of my favourite rides and the place I most want to return to and do a cross country road trip but no affordable rentals exist and too far away to do smaller rides so the idea remains on the shelf. 

2010 Europe Alps – Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein,  Switzerland,  Italy. I joined a tour for this ride as despite having driven around Europe in a van I wanted a hassle free relaxing time for my return to the continent and my first big overseas ride.
