Commencing on the 13th April 2012, we, Peter Foulkes and Jon Brookbanks, will embark on a 9 month round-the-world motorcycle adventure in order to raise money for Cancer Research.
After researching rider reviews, Peter contacted BMS about building two seats for he and his partner Jon Brookbanks. Their cause is dear to my heart and I decided to help sponsor with two custom saddles. This kind of distance ride is ideal for our ENDURA line and we installed a super tough, non slip, marine grade vinyl. We will be following Peter and Jon on their ride via their website and posts. Support their cause and live vicariously thru these two adventurers! Photo’s of the build process and video are at the bottom of this post.
Heading East, the first part of the journey will take us through Europe, Russia, and Mongolia, following a similar route to that taken by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman in the Long Way Round. Depending on road conditions and circumstances at the time, we will then make a decision as to whether we tackle the Road of Bones through Siberia to reach Magadan, or cross into South Korea, where we will ship the bikes to Anchorage and begin the second part of our journey from Alaska to Argentina. The final destination being Ushuaia, commonly regarded as the southernmost city in the world.
