Light the fire!

Just found us? Wondering what this motorcycle adventure travel gig is all about? You've come to the right place!

For over 10 years, we've been helping people just like you to achieve their dreams of travel to faraway places, not on a packaged tour but overland, with their own vehicle. We hope to create an addiction to travel that will never end. It all starts here...

  • Newsletter - Tales of adventure, joy and sheer terror from around the world! Stories from travellers on the road right now! Edited monthly (or as often as we get to it). Now in its 13th year of publication, with over 7,500 subscribers. Free to your e-mail box!

  • Travellers Stories / Blogs - Exciting, humorous and sometimes terrifying stories from intrepid motorcycle adventurers. Over 250 travellers, from first-timers to legends... Thousands of great stories and pics. Written on the road, from internet cafes in Afghanistan to Zimbabwe and all parts in between.

  • Grant & Susan Johnson - Grant & Susan Johnson, your hosts, are also seasoned (some would say crazy) motorcycle travellers. We did our own RTW trip north to south, two up on a 1986 BMW R80 G/S from 1987. We've been to over 50 countries since then, traveling and working all over the world, and we're not finished yet! And quite frankly, if we can do it, so can you! Read our stories from the road...

Are you an Overland Adventure Traveller?

Does the smell of spices wafting through the air make you think of Zanzibar, a cacophony of honking horns is Cairo, or a swirl of brilliantly patterned clothing Guatemala? Then this is the site for you!
