Chief rider, Kristian Steele, has 12 years motorbiking under his belt. Well practised in dodging traffic in central London, Himalyan mountain roads, and Italian cities. And has spent the last 3 years enticing Anna into motorbiking.
Anna has had her licence for 3 years and has probably done a total of 20 days motorbike riding on her Bandit and DRZ400. 7 of those were done in Cambodia on a Honda XR.
Whilst the big plan was for Kristian and Anna to do the ride together, certain influences meant Anna couldn’t take 3 months leave. So Kristian was a rider down for certain sections. We needed to call on some trusty additional riders.
Next up is Shaun Kelly (right), kiwi and avid rider. He started riding at 15, 26 years ago, has ridden since then riding a wide variety of bikes in NZ, UK Indonesia, Thailand, Greece, India and currently commutes on his Vespa down the A40… This will be his first long range trip!
We also have our back up service team, Skip who is a DRZ specialist and will source and send any spare parts we might need while on the road.
