On February 3rd, 2011 I attended Allan Karl’s presentation of his world travels on motorcycle at the European Motorcycles of Western Oregon.
In general I admire all world adventure people. I admire their courage. Especially their courage to leave things and people behind and suspend regular activities for long periods of time more than the courage to face uncertainties inherent to going to unknown places.
Karl is a great photographer and also a great speaker. He will keep you on the edge of your seat as the adventure unfolds through his great story telling skills, coordinated with perfectly timed photography and video.
BMW sponsors or encourages a few successful world travelers to enter a circuit of presentations at BMW dealerships. Karl happens to have ridden around the word on a motorcycle exactly like my 2006 F650GS Dakar.
To follow more information on Allan Karl, please check his WorldRider blog.
Or check his stories as they were documented on the ADV Rider site.
I highly recommend it for the great stories and photography!
