ADVENTURE IS AN ATTITUDE!

ADVENTURE IS GOING PAST YOUR LIMITS!

it is not what we ride, where we ride,how we ride.its a relative term. for some1 just riding a mobike might be an adventure,(many dream of this but dont do it).
ADVENTURE is when we put ourselves out of our comfort zone!
fight or flight response is activated and there is an adrenalin rush.when the activity becomes normal then we seek more 'unknown' pastures to get the adrenalin going.
so for commuters its riding into the outback.
after the outback is done maybe overseas. the list is endless.
There are adventureres is all of us. just dream follow your dream.

The universe conspires in helping you achieve your dream!

Yes, that looks like a description for the word "adventure", but that has little to do with the term "Adventure riding"...

Fuck it, I'm calling it all roads touring, or gravel touring from now on.

I don't know. I felt I was more adventure riding on this sealed road (Pamir Highway Tadjikistan)



Than I did on this snow covered dirt road (W Campwood Rd Arizona).

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

I've often wondered who came up with the term "adventure riding" as it relates to what we allegedly do. Most isn't adventurous at all. In fact an average driver in an SUV could go most of the places we go. Not all...most.

Wicked Adventure , whatever!

Its a feeling or state of mind, not a set of rules!

I ride an SV1000s around South Australia, its a full on road bike, Michelin pilot Sport tyres, clipons, fairing and all. If I go somewhere and there is a bit of dirt involved, I don't turn around, just press on. Maybe not at 100 kmh, but I still get there.

Because I ride predominately on bitumen does that mean I have to take my ADV stickers off?

The average family car could do it...

I was heading from Birdsville to Boulia one year and a met two ladies who were going the other way in a new magna.

They were taking it easy, but I have no doubt they made it there, and back...

I still don't care what it is called though, I just wonder why people want to label it an "adventure ride" every time they swing there leg over a bike.

Is is some how magically better if you can put a name to the "type" of ride?

Someone who likes to have a name for everything and have it nicely pigeon holed, the sort of person who rides a fully kitted 1200 gs to the coffee shop but nowhere else, the sort of person who wears khaki pants and shirt and has all the best hiking gear for their bus tour around S.E.Asia need I go on?

I know at least two guys who rides SV's and have riden them on more dirt roads and better than other riders I have seen on dual purposes. The bikes are both SV nakeds though.

Well done riding an S on gravel.

Let me guess, is your SV black?

Back on topic.

I guess that riding mainly on bitumen is touring but is still riding and could be an adventure to the person doing it.

Unbelievable Name names so none of us end up in a similar predicament

Could be a new thread " Non Latte' towns"
