A nice reader ride “Wanderlust” BMW R100S

Bob Writes in:
Love the site, always one of the first I visit every morning with my coffee- kudos to you!
 But I thought I’d send in a pic of a barn-find I snagged last year.
It’s a 1977 BMW R100S in the hills by my house here in Colorado… and obviously, I dig it!
It’s my daily driver and after a fair amount of work (after sitting for years) it runs like a champ!
 Cheers! And keep up the good work!

Wow!  that is some “barn find”!  As a Florida native I get so jealous of you folks living in the hills.  Great stuff!


Spanish Wanderlust on a Yamaha Super Tenere

Oilrider over on ADV rider was kind enough to let me repost this gorgeous shot. When you live in the flattest state in the union shots like this can get you envious..

Hello Steve,
I took it during a trip to the Picos de Europa in Spain in may 2011. It is on the beautiful road from Portilla de la Reina to Cain.

A random sampling of some fantastic Trans America Trail (aka:TAT) photo’s.

There is a great thread over on ADV rider posting Trans America Trail photos and this post by Patrice Ninaud of RideDualSport.com fame really caught my eye. This is one of those rides that I think about a lot. When my daughter gets a bit older I think I might have to at least bite off a piece of this ride. Maybe the east coast portion for a start and see what happens.

Looking at these photos I realize just how much of this country I’m yet to see. Like I said, these are just a random sampling of his trip. Great Stuff Patrice! Thanks much!

A Little Colorado Adventure Wanderlust Action…

Living in Florida isn’t exactly torture but geography that’s as  flat as a pancake does get old.  I look at photos like this and think that a little snow might not be so bad once in a while.  These are courtesy of the incomparable Edward “Geek” Walker from Colorado.  AKA MotoGeek! Be sure to check out his site for a LOT more!  These are from a little Sunday/Monday ride he took.  Damm. Some guys sure do have it rough…

Thanks Ed!

More scooter pics from the Himalayas.

More from Martin Victor Alva :
Hello Steve,
Here are a couple more photos of my rides in the Himalayas. We also took 50cc two stroke mopeds to the Himalayas. My disc crashed and most photos got destroyed. I had this one in my sent mail so i found it.

The other one is from my Adventure motorcycle riding company called Vista Adventures. We organise guided tours in India and that photo is of my Royal Enfield from June this year.


Double Wow!

Budget minded Wanderlust! Scooters to the top of the world.

Martin Victor sends in these photos and links from this absolutely amazing adventure.  These have been making the rounds on the web but they are well worth a mention.  Great stuff!

Me and my friends rode some scooters to the highest village on earth. It would be really great if you could feature these on your website. The name of the Village is Kaumic, it’s about 4300 meters (over 14,000 feet) high. We rode in May 2008. All these three are two stroke scooters. The make and model are, 1. Bajaj Chetak, 2. LML Vespa Select, 3. Kinetic Honda DX. The Kinetic is a non-geared scooter. They cost us a 100 dollars each. We mixed cooking oil in the petrol because we couldn’t find 2T (2 stroke) oil high up in the mountains.

I have many more photos here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=16758927

If you could post my twitter id @motorbikeman along with the post then it would help me a great deal to network with like minded people.

Thank you,

My pleasure Martin. It’s a fantastic adventure. Thank you for sharing!
