Matt,

Would be really interested in the videos that you mention making.

Hey on the cooking front. You could do some warm salads?

There was a gentleman at Ripley last year talking about this very subject - he was absolutely fantastic and I'm sure he had written a book... but do you think I can recall his name?

Any help and advice much appreciated.

Hi Matthew

recently I started a blog on the scientific aspects of adventure motorcycling, including fitness testing and training.

The Science of Adventure Motorcycling

Because it is a blog rather than a textbook, information is added progressively. So you may not find (yet) all the answers you are looking for. For example, I have not posted yet a list of specific strengthening exercises for adventure bike riders, i.e. exercise useful for riding off-road, lifting the bike up, and prevent common overuse injuries. I will do this over the coming weeks, months.

However, I am sure the information that is already there will be helfpul to riders like you who want to improve their fitness.

Let me know what you think of the blog and if it can improved in any way. I appreciate.

Cheers

Sam

If you are looking for no-BS and minimal bro-science, my recommendations would be to check out;

Scooby - he is great, and he also has the wanderlust, start at his about me page and check out all his tips.

About Scooby Werkstatt - Scooby's Home Workouts

StrongLifts.com: Gain Strength And Muscle While Losing Fat

Both very good sites. They are about strength and bodybuilding though but have really good details on fitness. Most importantly though they are not pushing supplements.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
