Trip Planning

What do I need to know? Lots! But not nearly as much as you might think. Many people are put off because they think there is so much you need to know, so much planning and preparation, that they get bogged down in the morass of information they THINK they need, and never do it, because it all just seems too hard.

“The road becomes more and more challenging and isolated, with river crossings and bridges made of doubtful pieces of wood. I find myself in a very remote high altitude area, on a path where it is extremely difficult to keep the motorbike up. I come close to falling many times. the road deteriorates more and more, I find myself more often than not, on edges of very high cliffs. I’m faced with a difficult passage and I got hesitant to take the easiest line, which was on the edge of the cliff, and what had to happen, well, happened. “

What others say about HU.

Grant, you and Susan started the adventure biking revolution with one of the first websites on the internet. Your worldwide organisation and HUBB events are the Go To places to for all serious touring and aspiring touring bikers. In my experience touring bikers are amazing people who fertilise the planet with inspiration, happiness and goodwill. You have made a fantastic contribution to our world. You should be nominated for a Nobel Peace award and the biking world owes you guys an enormous debt of gratitude.

Trevor Hayes, South Africa

Thank you! The web site, The travels, The insight, The inspiration, Everything, just thanks. Colin Askey, UK

I for one always had an adventurous spirit, but you and Susan lit the fire for my trip and I’ll be forever grateful for what you two do to inspire others to just do it. posted while gazing up at the waterfalls surrounding my hostel in Baños, Ecuador . Brent Carroll, USA

Your website is a mecca of valuable information and the DVD series is informative, entertaining, and inspiring! The new look of the website is very impressive, updated and catchy. Thank you so very much! Jennifer, Canada
