Welcome to my C90 adventures website. I'm not a professional writer or rider by any stretch of the imagination but I've got a passion for doing as many exciting things as I can in my life, a passion for making people laugh, but mainly... a passion to show the world that you don't need a £15,000 BMW GS1200 to travel
one constant that has been in my life has been motorcycles. I love them, can’t get enough of them. I can ride all day no problems at all. There is nothing quite like the feeling of being free, cruising along to the sound of a well tuned engine.
Travel is in my blood. Both my father and grandfather had careers that regularly took them around the world. My profession (programming!) doesn’t really provide many opportunities to leave the office, so I have to create my own. The first real taste of travel came from a maniac weekend of spending way too much time on the v-strom trying to cover way too many miles in too short of a time.
This website has been put together so family, friends and anyone else who is interested can follow our trip to Australia. We travelled on a BMW GS1100 and left the UK in September 2001. The site has five sections which cover how we started out, some tips we learned about the bike and the gear we needed, a map of our route and an online diary.
Are you a Motorcycle Traveller? Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns is Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then this is the site for you!
Intrepid travellers, outdoorsey types who are very capable in dealing with all physical challenges...well, OK, maybe Kelly isn’t so much but she can spot a designer handbag at 100 paces and tie a mean knot in a scarf! Very useful skills when travelling for 12 months plus on the back of a motorbike!
