Finding Freedom...World Wide Ride

We finally did it in June 2012. We sold everything, quit our jobs, and hit the road to find freedom on our BMW F 800 GS and F 650 GS. It was 10 months from Vancouver to Panama City and then 4 more to get from Colombia to Ushuaia! The epic adventure continues in 2014 for another year in South America before we head to Europe.

Hello fellow inmates!



Well we are little slow in getting things happening here on ADV. What can I say the riding has been fantastic and sitting in front of a screen typing falls very low on the priority list. The scenery has been incredible and the adventure has been better than we had hoped for in the Yukon and Alaska.


We have already met a lot of great ADV riders in the three weeks we have been on the road and look forward to connecting with even more as we now turn south for Ushuaia. To cut the screen time we will be posting the links to our blog. The first few entries can be viewed here
