  3. Hey guys! My name is Scott and I'm a fairly new off road rider/seasoned photographer from Baltimore, MD. I was recently approached by BMW Motorrad to participate in their Everyday Adventures project, which is based around the ethos of exploring the best motorcycling places that are close to home. The project involved is posting content that reflects these endeavors, and the person who gains the most folllowers proportionate to where they started from is flown out to Motorrad Days in Germany! It would mean a lot if you all check out my content and give me a follow! Some of my work is attached below, and my Instagram is scottbraaplyphoto! IMG_3108.mp4
  4. Hey! I'm new to this forum, but thought I'd share a few snaps from my weekend trip to the Lake District. We rode some awesome trails and camped near Keswick. It had been raining heavily the days before we arrived so the trails were pretty muddy and flooded, but we had a load of fun

  7. Hi to the Easterners - while you're contemplating how cold a "Polar Vortex" can get, and motorcycling is a distant memory, here's a puzzle for you! What's the "most fun you can have on two wheels"? HUMM is the answer, and we're very pleased to announce that the 1st USA HUMM will be held in Green Ridge State Forest in the Appalachian Mountains of Maryland from Aug 11-13! "Ranks among the top ten 'best fun' biking experiences!" This is also the first HUMM in eastern North America, so for all you Canucks who have been looking enviously at the HUMMs in BC, here's your chance to get in on the action, less than a day's ride from Toronto! Take advantage of early bird rates until Jan 31, book your holidays and start getting your team together! For all the details and to register, start here: www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/humm-appalachians-2017 What's a HUMM? Check out the HUMM Video for a taster! Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness (HUMM) Appalachians is a unique 2 day, off-road motorcycle orienteering/geo-caching event for teams of 2-4 bikes. Unleash your competitive instincts and sharpen your navigation skills in your choice of compass or GPS categories (no waypoints provided!) Whether you're new to off-road riding or a trail ninja, HUMMs let you and your team choose your adventure... it IS a navigation challenge, after all. How does it work? All teams get the same maps and a HUMM Points Book on Day 1. Checkpoint values are based on distance and degree of difficulty. Each checkpoint gets its own page with key info about its location - your team figures out how to get there and which ones to aim for, because you can't get to all of them! Every team has a different strategy, so there is no set course. You're never following a string of riders down the same dusty trail! What's a suitable bike? Bikes need not be dedicated off-road specials but need to have a vague predilection for the dirt. So GS Adventure yes, Electric Glide in Blue, no. Knobby tires a plus but by no means essential. All bikes must be fully street-legal. "Put this on your 'must do' list!" Why a HUMM? 1st, 2nd and 3rd place Team Members in each class get a keeper Trophy! How cool is that! We are fully official with all local and state authorities, so no aggro for riders on the trails or the roads. Support services - Each team will have a Spot satellite tracker supplied for the event. If you need help, we'll come and get you. Our locally based support and recovery service can provide first aid and transport to the nearest suitable facility as well as basic field repairs and motorcycle recovery. This service is provided on a 'best efforts' basis. Each team gets a custom map and points book to keep. An exclusive, sweat-wicking HUMM technical t-shirt. Awards Dinner on the final evening is included in your registration fee. Did I mention keeper trophies? ;-) "Had a blast at the HUMM, and looking forward to next year." Activities for non-riders There's also plenty on offer for non-riding spouses or partners. Rocky Gap Casino Resort, the hotel for the venue, boasts a spa, a pool, a fitness center, an 18-hole golf course, five onsite restaurants and of course, a 24-hour casino! It's on a lake, so fishing and kayaking are also possible. The area features a wide variety of activities and attractions such as Rocky Gap State Park, the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad, and many cultural and culinary experiences. Sign me up! Online registration for this event is now open, with super early bird rates until January 31, so book your holidays and start getting your team together! For all the details and to register, start here: www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/humm-appalachians-2017 Hope to see you at the HUMM! Grant & Susan Horizons Unlimited Inspiring, informing and connecting travellers since 1997 Alain Kaldewaay, Xplor-Int Event Partner, HUMM Appalachians 2017 P.S. Please forward this e-mail to your friends (if you aren't afraid of competition! ;-) Best wishes for a happy, healthy and adventurous 2017! Hope to see you at an HU event, or on the road someday, somewhere...
  8. Hi guys, Happy to be joining the community! I'm riding Africa on an Enfield (A wildly inappropriate choice, but the heart wants what the heart wants...) Been at it for nearly a year now. You can follow the madness as I head south, down the west side, at shotsfromthebar.com Posting up to Insta and facebook too, posting under @shotsfromthebar. Hope you dig it, looking forward to telling the stories! Luke
  9. I went last year for the first time and it was a lot of fun. There is a lot of great riding over there and camping and partying with hundreds of other ADV enthusiasts is a blast. There are many vendors with all kinds of cool products from little gizmos to whole motorcycles you can try out. There are some great learning opportunities with Jimmy Lewis, Dirt First, and PSSOR doing classes. There is a huge tent area for those riding in, but also an RV area if you want to trailer in too. They offer guided tours for any skill level, or you can just make up your own using the supplied GPS maps. There is food, beer, and gas available right across the street, but those great vendors usually have a keg flowing in the evening. Last year there were about 800 people making it the largest ADV rally in the US, I believe. This year they are going to actually limit attendance to about 1000 and early bird tickets sales end in February, so don't delay. https://www.touratechrally.com/ See you there!, Pete
