Some of our key speakers;
After living and working in the US for more then 10 years and spending most of that time in NYC it was time to see the rest of the world. In 2000, the road from Alaska till the bottom of Argentina inspired a journey and the soul. 10 years later, Avi found himself riding through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. The trip was 4 months and 15,000 kms on a KTM 640 adventure.
The desire to understand more about our beautiful planet and connect with the people of the Earth drove Jay to quit his job in Chicago, sell his house and most worldly belongings and get on his trusty Suzuki DR650, named sanDRina, and head off into the wind. The journey titled "Jammin thru the Global South" began in March 2010. The 3 year and 3 month journey covered 103,200 kms across 33 countries on 5 continents ending in India. Jay is Jupiter's Traveller.
From Vishakhapatnam (Vizag), Bharadwaj flew out from Bombay en-route to Tehran (Iran) with his Indian made motorcycle in 2006 to travel the world ALONE, over 19 months and five continents. The journey of this self-possessed man reflects a humbling human experience and inspires every motorcycle adventurer. The trip was fully self-funded.
The workshops will revolve around Tire Changing, On Road maintenance and tools, Camping and motorcycling, Paperwork and visas for outbound travel
The Open Sessions have been included to tap into the collective knowledge of participant travellers. Destination information, technical information, gear information and similar topics will be covered which will be prompted by participants. It will also provide opportunities to the participants to share their journeys and experiences on the road. Talks will be confirmed as we finalise on the participation list.
The meet is planned in a campsite 60 kms away from Bangalore. Camp can accommodate 70 people making it a small gathering of serious motorcycle travellers.
