What do you do at the end of an epic adventure?

So what happens at the end of an epic trip? What do you do when you've travelled around the world for 4 years and have set multiple world records in doing so? Well... unless you are financially very fortunate, which we ain't, it definitely means back to work! Obviously it would be a waste to simply drop back into what we had been doing before and pretend nothing had happened and nothing had changed. Because a lot has happened and a lot has changed! Our perspective on life has changed, we have changed and our view on the world has changed too. At the same time we felt we had to do something with the wealth of experiences and knowledge done up over the past 4 years and riding a motorcycle literally around the globe. So why not combine it all? That's why we've setup Nomad-ADV and also expanded Earth-Roamers. 

The preparation of a motorcycle, any motorcycle, into a capable adventure machine is why we've setup Nomad-ADV. We don't just sell parts and fit them, we can build travel bikes from scratch. Whether it is adapting the machine you have and love to ride into a capable travel bike or setting up a brand new one to your dreams, Nomad-ADV is the place to do it. We don't just fit accessoires but setup bikes based upon our own experience of traveling around the world for 4 years and do so in a no-nonsense way. Our advice is practical, we know what works and what doesn't, we also know what can be repaired along the way and what can't. The emphasis for any modification or setup is always on you being able to do your trip, rather than what looks cool in the showroom. Which is why the only thing you will find in our showroom are our own bikes. The bikes that have been around the world, which shows the battle scars, or as we call it signs of life. Obviously we need certain parts and accessories on top of what we make ourselves to outfit your bike. Adding a website to Nomad-ADV where we can showcase some of our ideas and have parts and accessories available was a logical step. Checkout Nomad-ADV.com via the link below now!

We have given you over 400 pages of information on travelling around the world and virtually taken you there through this blog and the on-board videos. Now we are taking things one step further. We can actually physically take you there! No virtual reality but real life. So come and travel the world with us, see the beautiful places we have been to, without the hassles and the paperwork! 

Earth-Roamers is a tour company with a difference. We don't do pampered hotel to resort to hotel tours but true adventures. We prefer camping and small family run accommodation over 5 star luxury. We take you over the roads less travelled, where the real beauty of a country shines. No heroics and no 700km+ days of mind-numbing asphalt munching either. Just nothing but real experiences and... obviously you can do it on your own bike! Unlike many other operators we even prefer it if you come on your own bike, but if you prefer a rental than we can do that too. The Earth-Roamers tours site will be live shortly. The first tour we have planned will take you to the Australian Outback like you've never seen it before, but there are many other options as well, stay tuned... Oh and this blog is somewhat behind but we will finish it... so there are still many posts to come here too :-) For the moment though concentrate on the preparation of your trip and check out Nomad-ADV.com for inspiration!
