Important - read at first:

After 44 years - on 18th.09.2014 - I decided to stop my researches on: "How were all continents discovered 1885-2014 by motorcycle-travellers?" The reason is that I have been sitting with all my passion behind the computers and reading books and articles for years day and night to come to the knowledge of these sites.
I am still full of other ideas including some travels. Also I want to move a bit more for my health instead of sitting too long behind the computer.

You can use all information for yourself. If you use infos and fotos for any other reason like publications please know, that there is still Copyright on all of it by myself and others.

I am German. I did my best to write most in English. If I missed some ,,,,,,,,, please take some of these and put them on the right place (Churchill)!

Around-The-World "North". Jens rode 38.000 km in 10 months solo on a BMW F800GS
Purpose: Just wanted to do it.
In 1989 after I read "Jupiter´s Travels", I planned to start my trip around the World by bike when my children are grown up! This happened now..
Route: Europe (Germany (Hannover)- Poland- Lithuania- Latvia- Russia)- Asia (Russia- Mongolia- Russia). While shipping the bike in a container together with two other bikes by vessel from Russia (Vladivostok with with firm Links, Ltd. for € ??) I flew with Airline Astra International Vancouver for € ??. All together: € 2.400 (?) to North America (Canada (Vancouver) I visited in Asia Japan, South-Korea and Hawaii without the bike. North America by bike (Canada- USA- Mexico- USA). From USA (Miami) I shipped the bike again in a container with some other cars by shipping line "Trans Scorp International Paris" for € 1.100 to Europe (France (Le Havre). I flew with ?? Airlines from ?? to ?? for US $ ??. While shipping the bike to Europe I visited in America the island Cuba and in Europe the Canary Islands without the bike. - In Europe by bike (France- England- Belgium- Netherland- Germany).
The best: Seeing that (most of) the people all over the world are friendly. They want to life a live in peace, take care of their families and are very helpful (more than we do in Germany…).
The worst: Waiting for the bike while shipping by vessel…
Important useful informations for others: Don´t be afraid to do it. Just go. But don´t drive in the night because black cows and some bad people on the road…

"Die Generation, die gerade unterwegs ist, führt ja auch dieses Instagram-Leben. Es wirkt so, als fliege jeder um den Erdball, als wäre jeder an den coolsten Orten - und jeder will besonders individuell sein. Und am Ende rennt man doch dem hinterher, was eigentlich in den Medien oder in den sozialen Medien gezeigt wird.
Als ich zurückgekommen bin, hab ich dieses Europa plötzlich aus dem distanzierten Blick der Reisenden gesehen und war beindruckt. Wir haben wahnsinnige Kulturschätze, unfassbare Landschaften, so viele Länder mit sehr vielen Kulturen auf sehr engen Raum - das ist etwas sehr Besonderes."

Sie erlebte den Militärputsch in der Türkei, bretterte gegen eine Sanddüne, hatte eine Romanze mit einem russischen Scharfschützen.

- Plan Around-The-World.  Untill 12th.03.2019 Marta amd Lukasz rode 170.000 kms around the world with one bike BMWGS800 riding South and North America. Both rode on one bike 60.000 kms from Argentina to Alaska in 8 months and then straight from Deadhorse to New York. 18 countries. Africa. nearly Around Africa, from Poland, to Morocco and then to Egypt, next to Libian border, through Cape town, 28 countries, 52.000 kms in 10 months. Europe - about 40.000 kms in almost every country, except Scandinavia. We plan to make it this summer and then go to Asia the most Northern motorable road to Vladivostok. Then to Korea, Japan and Australia. Around Australia and comming back the Southern route through Asia through Arabic Peninsula to Europe
Asia - Central Asia, from Poland to Chinese border in 23 days and come back. 14.500 kms 2-up, through Belarus, Russia, Kazahstan, Uzbekistan, Kirgistan and Tajikistan.
Plan: Around Asia and around Australia - start this summer - about 80-100.000 kms in 1,5 years.
Purpose of travel: discovering the world, riding around continents, catching freedom and distance to the life.
Route: ona a map, through 85 countries so far.
Book or publication: not yet, first we will make few loops around the world and then we will think about publicatoons. You can follow our adventures in real time on Instagram or facebook.
Earlier experiences: riding own two bikes in Poland or during short trips around Europe. Before we had different bikes, since 2016 we have discovered the world just on one bike - red BMWGS800 called Donkey, the adventure bike. Before we were travelling much with car and by plane.
Information: The adventure is waiting just around the corner! We should leave the coach and explore!
The world is changing every day, sometimes the best plan is to be flexible and avoid planning too much.

Countries-Row: The first motorcycle trip together was the one to Chinese border when we did in 23 days of holidays about 14.500 km.

The trip to Asian „States”:
It was from Poland, from Wroclaw, through Belarus and Minsk, through Moscow in Russia, then Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. We reached the Pamir Mountains and then went through Kirgizstan the route back to Poland. We did 7 countries with 5 visas prepared before one by one during 2 months. Before wasn’t so easy to travel, but now we know that the situation with paperwork is better, so everybody who wants to discover that part of the world can have some more fun just riding.

After that trip, we decided that travelling fast like that maybe it is a challenge, but if we want to explore more and look around or get to know the area and people with their culture -  we need to make it slower.

And that began the American part of our RTW trip in 2016:
In three months after Asian trip, we changed the continent into South America and started realizing „From Argentina to Alaska” trip which was planned for 40.000 km and finally we finished with 60.000 kms in 8 months. We did Ushuaia and Deadhorse and then finished the ride in New York and Montreal which was the place we sent the bike to Ireland in Europe.

The exactly route was: Chile, going down through Patagonia to Argentina to Fin del Mundo and then going up through east coast of Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina to explore Iguazu. After that we decided to look at the waterfalls from the Brazilian side, so we crossed the border and went to Brazil for few days and then came back to Argentina, Chile and went to Bolivia to Salar which is one of the most beautiful places in the whole world. After Bolivia was Peru – the paradise for bikers, where we spent riding around more than a month and Ecuador where we crossed the first time in our life the equator. We were going North to Colombia to cross the Darien Gap going to Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and Mexico. We went through Yucatan and then crossed the whole Mexico to spend some time on Baja California – wonderful peninsula. Reaching the border with US we arrived in California, and then decided to visit few National Parks. The main direction was North, and we wanted to catch the summer in Alaska. Crossing 10 states in US, we arrived in Canada, visited Banff and some huge glaciers and of course met some bears on the road or next to our tent. On the first of July the last point of the road was reached – Deadhorse. From there it was the straight way to Chicago, New York and Montreal.
Unhappily that trip wasn’t finished on wheels, as in Scotland (coming back Poland) we had an accident and the plan to cross Europe was failed after having both our left hands broken and the bike destroyed.

The African trip started first time in November 2017, but another time there was something which stopped us and finally the start date was in May 2018 after recovery and bike repair.
The trip begun in Poland riding through Germany, France, Spain and Portugal in Europe. Then it was a short ferry to Morocco and a route around Africa ran across Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Benin. Then – Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo and DRC. Riding down – South to Cape Town it was Angola and Namibia. From South Africa we made a small trip around Botswana and around Lesotho, going to Swazi and coming back to South Africa to prepare the bike to further ride North. After that we visited Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi. After small rest in Malawi we started going to Zanzibar before exploring Tanzanian land and meeting wildlife on the way.
After Tanzania riding around it was like Ruanda, Uganda and Kenya. From Kenya we crossed Ethiopia and Sudan going to Egypt and then we shipped the bike to Greece


Greece - cross few countries in Balkans like Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Croatia and Slovenia and then Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany and coming back to Poland.

During our holidays in 2015 and 2016 we explored Europe riding around.

- Patrick plans solo Around the World with Suzuki DR 650 SE 1996. My plan is to travel minimum one year. I go back to my country, when de cash is used up or I dont have fun. The plan is to start my travel at March 2020 with an open end.

Route: Europe  (Switzerland – Austria - Slovenia – Bosnia and Herzegovina – Montenegro – Albania – Greece – Bulgaria – Turkey – Georgia - Russia  ....) - Asia (Kazakhstan – Uzbekistan – Turkmenistan - Iran - Pakistan - India – Myanmar – Thailand – Malaysia – Indonesia) – Australia –America (Argentinia – Chile – Bolivien - Peru – Equador – Columbia – Panama – Costa Rica – Nicaragua – Honduras – El Salvador – Guatemala – Mexico – USA – Canada)
Highlights: we will see
The worst: we will see
Book or publication: My plan is to write a blog. This blog I will create on the trip.

Jean-Louis Souchiere... (French. *1959) .
- Plan Around-The-Wold.
Purpose of your tour: Complete a solo world tour on an Ural Sidecar.
Route and Project details: Project started on spring 2020. Initially the intent was to go east to west but due to borders close I had to return from Vladivostok to France. With the reopening of the borders (2021 in Europe and 2022 for Americas), I went west to east starting from France and then crossing Canada, USA, Mexico, Central America and South America down south to Ushuaia.  Next step now is to go to Australia for a full round tour of Australia. I will then ship the bike back to Europe. Currently 72,000 Km, end of tour estimate: 100,000 km.
The Best: Encounters and friendship. New friends in Russia, Chile and USA. Russia allowed me to cross border in 2020 despite Covid Lockdown. British Colombia, Alaska and Costa Rica wildlife. Andes landscapes.
The Worst: Australian Customs. 2 thieves tried to steal me without success in Quito. I had to have my tooth ripped out in Argentina. I was stuck for a month in Peru because of the demonstrations.
Important useful information for others: Carnet is not necessary for Russia and Americas but Mandatory for Australia. Shipping from EU to Canada by air flight is simple, relatively cheap and very straightforward while it is a real nightmare and very costly from any place to Australia. One may consider to buy a local bike and resell it before leaving.

Special thoughts of Bernd Tesch:

During YOU Motorcycle-Traveller live:

The highest law of our universe is that it moves continually because of the opposite potentials of plus (+) and minus (-) powers. This means for our beloved world that even what you see on earth changes all the time. Even big mountains change by erosion through heat and cold, rain and ice and sand. Imagine what frozen ice can destroy! So you can never travel to the same place like it was before. Even if you do not notice the change it has changed. So it is not only worth to travel to new places but see old places again !

After YOU Motorcycle-Traveller die:
01.08.2000 After I updated this homepage several times with some hundred hours of work Patricia and I took some hours off. We wanted to relax in the nearby forest EIFEL conquering a water canal maximum 3 meters wide in the end coming out of the ground about ca. 9 kms somewhere up the hills. We both liked the nature very much with all the greens, sunshine and shade. During this walk we loved to discover a group of some hundred years old beech-trees (Buchen).
Then Patricia said: "In my next life I would like to be a beech-tree". This caused some thoughts in me: After we die 90 % water of our body will first go in the ground. It could be that a part of this water will help to create another plant or even a tree. So you mc-traveller could be a part of a beech-tree. Some of this water will evaporate in the air. Then the wind will blow your water somewhere and it will come down on earth or in the sea again. If the water comes down on earth a plant could grow with your water. A Motorcycle-Traveller could eat this plant. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again. Or your rain could fall in a small river and another mc-traveller drinks clear water out of this river. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again.

The very rest of your 10 % material could be eaten by bacteries. Bigger animals could eat these. Possibly this animal could be eaten by another animal and this by a mc-traveller. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again. Possibly this mc-traveller will read this homepage. Then your soul is connected with your material again. This are some possible ways that YOU Mc-Traveller never die and will live for long times as a Motorcycle-TRAVELLER.

5 billion (Milliarden) years later ALL Motorcycle-Travellers will die:
Sun will kill all Motorcycle-Travellers. The sun will have extended so much in size because the indifference between gravity and escaping energy that she reaches the earth. All the heat will destroy all life on earth including ALL MOTORCYCE-TRAVELLERS. That´s it !
I hope you liked reeding this. I am just waiting for YOUR email helping me to update A LIFELONG job with passion.

Compliments: I even did not thing to publish this. But some nice compliments came in ! Why should I not offer them to you ?

21.02.2008 2nd request to the editor

2012 From Internet: Brazilian student on round-the-world mission
10 November 2003 Media release
Brazilian round-the-world motorcyclist Raphael Karran is taking time out in New Zealand to improve his English language skills for two months in Hamilton.
At an education fair in Brazil, Raphael heard about the courses run by the Language Institute at Waikato University and applied for a scholarship to coincide with his time in Australasia. The Institute granted him one and is planning to use Raphael’s story to help with promotion in Brazil.
Raphael, who is reporting for a Brazilian motorcycle magazine called Motociclismo Magazine, has already traveled 90,000 km through South and North America, Europe, Asia and part of Australia. He will return to Perth in December to continue his mission to Sydney, then finally to Africa.
He hasn’t been able to bring his bike with him to New Zealand because his visit here is only eight weeks and he would have had to disassemble his bike, have it quarantined, obtain registration and warrant certificates etc. This would have left him very little time to utilise it. His main purpose for visiting New Zealand is to improve his English and experience a bit of Kiwi culture.
Raphael dreamed of making the round-the-world trip since he was very young, and finally decided to do the trip while sitting in a traffic jam in Sao Paulo.
25.10.2012 Asked Emilio Scotto if he knows how to contact him.

- Plan Around-The-World.
We are planning to go around the world, probably breaking the record of the longest motorcycle ride ever done by a couple (around 100,000 miles / 160.000 km).We are riding together, each with a BMW F650GS/Dakar mounted with Touratech 39L tanks. We trained 8 weeks in Spain and Morocco.
Purpose of travel: Fun. Meeting the best girls / boys . Learn from people and share with others.
Route so far has been: Europe (France) by boat to Africa (Tunisia, Algeria, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya (22,08.2003). The planned route from Kenya is: down Africa to Capetown, ship to Rio, down to Ushuaia, up to San Francisco, ship to Sydney, go all over the place in Australia, ship to Indonesia, drive all over the place in Thailand, Cambodge, Laos and Vietnam, ship to Nepal, drive all over India, then back to Europe for a big tour of the continent.
The best so far: ??
The worst so far : ??
Book or publication: Probably write a book at the end.

- How many people approximately (and how many women) have completed a round-the-world trip on a motorcycle?
- Do you know if a woman has successfully completed a round-the-world trip that includes crossing all of Africa including the Sahara? (ie. Morocco or Tunisia through South Africa by land). My girlfriend is up for the challenge. Thanks, Pierre

Ruth Homer and Merv (England)
+ Around The World. On one (?) BMW R1150GS. http:/
Merv and Ruth Homer started out on a motorcycle adventure, which took them through 32 countries over a period of 2 years. To raise money for the trip they sold their house, in the UK, bought a shaft-drive motorcycle and necessary equipment.
They had planned an overland route from the UK to Malaysia and then from Canada to Chile. These plans soon changed when war and civil unrest broke
out along the way. Undeterred, they went through the Middle East shortly after 9/11.2001 and entered Nepal when it was in a State of Emergency.
Purpose of travel: It was incredibly difficult leaving behind all their friends and family - but it was a journey they needed to do as they struggled to come to terms with the loss of their youngest daughter.
: The epic 43,000-mile journey took them through France, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, India, Nepal, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Canada, USA, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Spain, Andorra and Germany.
Highlights: A motorcycle was the perfect vehicle for the adventure. Allowing them to travel where they wanted, when they wanted. From the remote rain forest regions to the centre of the Atacama desert - where it hardly ever rains - the driest desert on earth."

Homer, Ruth (English, bonr ??) and Merv (English, born in ???) + Around The World. On one (?) BMW R1150GS. http:/ Are all three websites still o.k.?? Merv and Ruth Homer started out on a motorcycle adventure, which took them through 32 countries over a period of 2 years. To raise money for the trip they sold their house, in the UK , bought a shaft-drive motorcycle and necessary equipment. They had planned an overland route from the UK to Malaysia and then from Canada to Chile . These plans soon changed when war and civil unrest broke out along the way. Undeterred, they went through the Middle East shortly after the NEW YORK terror 09 th .11.2001 and entered Nepal when it was in a State of Emergency . Purpose of travel: It was incredibly difficult leaving behind all their friends and family - but it was a journey they needed to do as they struggled to come to terms with the loss of their youngest daughter. Route: The epic 43,000-mile journey took them through Europe ( Great Britain - France - Switzerland - Italy - Greece - Turkey ) Asia ( Syria - Jordan - ?? how did you and the bikes reach India ??? - India - Nepal - ??how did you and the bike flew to Thailand - Laos - Cambodia - Malaysia ) - how did you and the bike flew to ??

Europe ( Spain - Andorra and Germany - Great Britain ??). Highlights: A motorcycle was the perfect vehicle for the adventure. Allowing them to travel where they wanted, when they wanted. From the remote rain forest regions to the centre of the Atacama desert - where it hardly ever rains - the driest desert on earth."

Martin Didier (living in Australia but born in France 1957)
- Plan Around-The-World. Martin wants a Motorcyle Adventure and Documentary. He wants a motorcycle adventure for the benefit of underprivileged children. In conjunction with World Vision. I am embarking on Ride4Kids, an around-the-world overland trip on a motorcycle.
The best: The best of the Ride4Kids project include a motorcycle journey around the world including some of the world’s poorest and most rugged countries. Raising money for World Vision while visiting World Vision projects along the way. The filming of two documentaries; the first on the lives of children in Africa, Siberia and South America and the second on the adventures encountered during the trip; and ·the ability of people around the world to follow my journey through the Ride4Kids website. All proceeds raised from the screening of the documentaries will be donated to World Vision.The public is also invited to donate money or sponsor children through the Ride4Kids website.
I’ve embarked on the Ride4Kids project out of a desire to help underprivileged children and raise awareness of their standard of living. I think it will also be a great adventure and a remarkable achievement.
Earlier experiences: 1996 -1997 Australia (Melbourne) to France (Paris) overland, which was also made into a documentary.
Route: Australia (Melbourne - riding to Perth) - and then flying to Africa (South Africa (Cape Town) - Botswana - Zambia - Tanzania - Uganda - Kenya - Ethiopia - Sudan ? . Egypt) - Asia (Jordan - Syria) - Europe (Turkey - Ukraine - ? - Poland - Russia) - Asia (Russia, Siberia - Japan) - North-America (Canada - USA - Mexico - Guatemala - Honduras - Nicaragua - Panama) - South America (Colombia - Ecuador - Peru - Bolivia - Argentina).

You will be invoted if you offer me your emai-Adress to . All details you find as well in - Bai-Bai Bernd Tesch. expert for mc-travels worldwide 1887-2017.
25.11.2014 For the past 15 months, Anna has ridden her KTM Adventure 1190 halfway around the globe from her Ukrainian home, spreading a simple message: Follow your dreams and good things will happen.
(If you want to follow Anna’s dream trip, check out her website, I Have a Dream, or her Facebook page.)
AG: Well, I just love to travel on the bike. I’ve been doing this for nine years before the world trip. When I came back from [my second trip to] India, I decided, “Why not make something global?” At first it was like a crazy idea, and I was scared of it: “No, I can’t do that. It’s so dangerous and so difficult. It’s not just one month’s travel – a few weeks.”
Earlier experiences: Since that time, all my life changed. Of course, I got new friends. I started to travel, first around Ukraine and then a little bit outside to Russia, Belarus, Moldova, then Eastern Europe, Turkey, Bulgaria, and into Greece, also. Then into Georgia. Then the Middle East: Syria, Jordan, Lebanon. Then India. That’s how it started, and that’s how it continues. And I was involved in the charity community. Since then, my life absolutely changed.
Plans: G: After Texas, I pick up my bike and I go to Mexico and the other Central American countries. From there, South America, the west coast: Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. From Brazil, I go to South Africa, and I take the east coast of Africa and end up in Egypt. From Egypt, Europe. So, I think that I’ll be on the road two and a half years, altogether. So, probably, I’m exactly halfway through.
11.04.2018 Anna wrote very polite that she canNOR come to the 60.t, Meeting for Wold-Travellesr because of the reson of Europen Visa because her passort is from Ukraine.
12.04.2018 Next request for her blog like example "Müller".
