Here we are again with our annual world travel issue! This is our seventh edition, and it’s filled with stories of adventure and exceptional travel experiences from various parts of the world.
Paddy Tyson sent in his account of riding in Tajikistan and his encounters with some of the very hospitable people of that country.
Next up is an article on the trials and tribulations of a multi-week vacation in Vietnam on rented scooters.
Our own Misti Hurst trekked to Nepal, but not to climb mountains; rather, she rode a couple of different motorcycles into the mountains. Her trip also helped to fund an orphanage and help destitute children in the region to gain a better life.
Shaun Hellmich ventured to Japan to ride around a few of the country’s islands and on those amazing roads. He explains that while there was a serious language barrier, he was able to get by without much of a problem.
By far the most harrowing account is the story of a small group of men who wanted to ride the length of the Americas overland in one go. They first had to leave the Arctic in winter in order to hack their way through one of the most dangerous places on earth – the Darien Gap. There’s a reason no one has done it before. It’s fascinating story you won’t want to miss.
I hope you enjoy this issue of Motorcycle Mojo magazine.
