Meet round-the-world sidecar adventurer Hubert Kriegel

Many of you may have read Hubert Kriegel's blog "The Timeless Ride" about his many year journey around the world on motorcycles. If not, READ IT, any motorcycle nut or starry-eyed wannabe adventurer will love it, the photographs are captivating and the writing is minimalist and powerful. Because of a "sidecar connection", I've had the privilege to meet Hubert recently and he is the same person in real life that he is on the blog - warm, friendly, fascinating and head over heels for motorcycles.

If you'd like to meet and greet with Hubert, he'll be on vacation in Northern California for a few weeks and will be at Triquest Motorcycles on March 31st (please contact Triquest for more information). Also, he will be at a friend's local monthly classic motorcycle meet-up, Moto Meeto, on April 4th. Please check the links below for updates.

Please note, nobody is making any money on this "celebrity appearance", least of all Hubert, these are not an officially sponsored or promoted events, but simply a friendly gathering of like-minded motorcyclists and travelers!

Thumb Meeting Hubert

Wow- what a great opportunity. Hubert and I have been in email contact for quite a few years and yet always seem to just miss each other on various continents. The closest we got was to be in Kazakhstan at the same time, but for those who don't know..it's a large country with a lot of desert. Due to visa restrictions, I couldn't head south again to meet him.

His photos are amazing and he has some great travel tales- he was the guy who went to Mongolia for the winter!!
Unheard of with a bike. so I'd definitely recommend to those who have the chance to go and hear him speak.

So, will be he be in America until May?? Cos I'll be in Arizona then...
