Overland Expo 2015: Motos

While I might not be an adventure moto guy, yet at least (I do have a motorcycle license though), I’m always impressed by the hearty souls who throw a leg over an adventure bike and hit the road less traveled. Motorcycle travel exposes you to the elements in so many ways that just aren’t experienced in a four wheeled adventuremobile. This exposure can be the most rewarding experience imaginable, and also many times the most miserable. The adventure moto tribe that gathered at Overland Expo 2015 braved some tough conditions, but were rewarded with amazing connections, with both other adventurers and industry professionals alike. Check out the below for a taste of the moto action from a snowy, muddy and cold Overland Expo 2015.

Tenting in the mud and snow probably wasn’t the most comfortable, but I think most would agree it was worth it.

This full custom ride from Rev’It started life as a KTM 950 and is now a 2 wheel drive off-road animal. They call it the Rev’It #95.

I really like this Honda CB500X Adventure that has been properly prepared for overland travel by Rally Raid Products and Giant Loop. The setup has me dreaming up all kinds of adventures to take it on!

Always a highlight at Overland Expo is the 2wd Ural w/sidecar. Maybe I should get this orange one and throw some kayaks in the side-car…

If you love adventure off-road moto racing and are looking for something closer to home than Dakar, be sure to check out the Baja Rally.

Big bikes, big adventures.

Navigation and comms are critical to a fun and safe off-road adventure. Paper maps, the Garmin Montana and a Delorme inReach Explorer are a formidable combination that will help you get anywhere, and back again.
