I'm Matt from France on motorbike world tour since july 2010.
My bike and I will arrive in Vancouver on the 17th of may.
The plan for the american leg of my journey is to ride from Canada to Argentina. As usual no plan, no time limit (only money limit !)
Except riding my bike in beautiful landscapes, feeling adventurous everyday, what I really enjoy while travelling is to meet people, different people, and learn from them. Of course travellers and bikers are my favorite because we already share some strories, at least we have common passion and it's always good time talking about travel with fellow bikers !!
I would be glad if I can meet HUBBers on my way, please just drop me a line !!
I am in South West Washington, 46 34' 48.98" 122 51' 54.45" always have a place to camp and most times a bed. You are welcome here. I have traveled a lot but not made it to France yet so we could share info on best places.
Have been on the road for a year, tomorrow. Currently Vancouver. Heading to Alaska, then back down to Argentina. Open-ish timescale. Maybe keep on the wires, our paths may cross. Not sure when im leaving Vancouver yet, still about a month too early for Alaska.
I'm from UK and have travelled in France and Europe, breaking my leg in Croatia. That's another story.
maybe before you start your journey heading north, or we'll catch up later somewhere in the south...
I'll have to spend a few days in Vancouver waiting for my bike to arrive from Malaysia, then my wallet tell me to go south as fast as possible, but being there, so close to Alaska... I have many options !
Also many questions ! About Visa, going out of Canada and in again (same for US with Alaska) can be an issue ? Are you riding your own UK registered bike in America ? in that case how could you insure it ?
After 2 years riding from France to Asia, I'm used to travel on very cheap standart and I'm afraid north america will rob a big part of my budget... If you have any tips for a cheap way to travel, will be most welcomed !!
If you want a place to stay, and keep to your budget, you are most welcome at our house. Lots of room to pitch a tent, maintain the bike, swap stories and advice etc... We live in Langley, just outside of Vancouver. Private Message me if you decide to.
If the road leads you to New Mexico (highly recommend the South West – amazing scenery and vistas) and you need a place stay, you are welcome at our place; just outside of Albuquerque. We also ride and love talking to others about their travels and sharing what we know of the area.
Hi Mattam. Can I ask what company you're using to ship your bike?
I'm from the UK but currently living in Germany and wanting to do a similar trip. Just now I'm considering if I should ship my bike there and back, or go through the trouble of buying one there and selling it after.
Cooped up indoors in crap weather? Binge watch over 20 hours of inspiring, informative and entertaining stories and tips from 150 travellers! Check it out at the HU Store! Remember to order them both and use Coupon Code 'BoxSet+' on your order when you checkout.
