Motorcycle rides beyond Asia

I am riding now a lot in Asia because when younger I was focussed on seeing Europe and USA. My first big trip was to the UK as a clueless backpacker with a Eurail pass. I returned a couple years later and purchased a camper van in UK and drove around western Europe for few months. Not sure what I was hoping to find in Europe but I returned twice more, once on a rail tour with Intrepid Travel which was the holiday from hell. In between this I went  to USA and Canada which I enjoyed but all the time I ignored Asia for reasons I cannot fathom now. Well that’s a little background and why there are less rides in other regions.


2017 Balkans – I was told to visit the Balkans instead of mainstream western Europe when I was planning my first trip in 1989, wish I had listened as it is a fantastic region.

2016 Sicily – Took 15 years from when I first purchased tickets to 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.
