Important to read at first:


After 44 years - on 18th.09.2014 - I decided to stop my researches on: "How were all continents discovered 1885-2014 by motorcycle-travellers?" The reason is that I have been sitting with all my passion behind the computers and reading books and articles for years day and night to come to the knowledge of these sites.
I am still full of other ideas including some travels. Also I want to move a bit more for my health instead of sitting too long behind the computer.

You can use all information for yourself. If you use infos and fotos for any other reason like publications please know, that there is still Copyright on all of it by myself and others.

I am German. I did my best to write most in English. If I missed some ,,,,,,,,, please take some of these and put them on the right place (Churchill)!

Nina Tin-Rasmussen and Hjalte Tin jumping of happiness on their tour "First car with electric power Around-The-World". Foto and (C) Hjalte and Nina www.moto-mundo.com



le > re: Nina Tin-Rasmussen. Hjalte Tin. Bernd Tesch. Patrcia Govers-Tesch on their visit in 13.05.2010 - Nina and Hjalte in 2010. Fotos B.T.


25.06.2010 - 07.05.2011 First Around the World with electric car 30.000 kms.
Hjalte Tin (Danish, born 08.09.1953) and Nina Tin-Rasmussen (Danish, born 06.08.1942) http://www.ninaoghjalte.dk + www.moto-mundo.com
+ Around-The-World by electric car. Nina and Hjalte drove in three continents through 14 differnet countries 30.000 kms with an elchtric-car.
Purpose of your tour: ..to test if it was possible to go around the world in a 100% full-size electric car.
Route:  Europe (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Estonia) - Asia (Russia (Burjatia), Mongolia (Gobi), China (Erenhot to Shanghai), by container ship to North-America (USA (San Francisco - New York)) - by container ship to Europe (Spain, France, Monaco, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Austria, Netherlands, Poland,  Germany, Denmark).
They started with two Nissan Qashqai Electric (Nissan Qashqai converted to 100 electric drive by Danish company Afuture), one driven by Nina, one driven by Hjalte. Technical problems with charging system forced one car to be sent back to Denmark from Moscow. Nina and Hjalte did the rest of the circumnavigation in the other "Green car".
Highlights:  Joining president Medvediv's summer camp for young inventors outside Moscow. Exhibiting the car at the Shanghai-EXPO and at the Detroit Auto Show. Competing in the Monte Carlo Rally for electric cars (finishing 8 out of 13).
Daugther Ida Tin and grandson Elliot Tin joined us in the car in USA from San Francisco to Dallas.
The best: To complete the circumnavigation. To cross the Gobi desert.
The worst:
Weeks of heat-wave in Russia + 40 degrees made charging the car almost impossible. Minus 20 in USA - and no heating to get max. milage to drive from the battery - Brrrr! The World Electric Tour have encountered extreme conditions from endless Siberian highways, Gobi-desert heat, wild traffic in China and freezing US winter.

Book or publication :... we are writing a book, expect to be published in 2012. We are producing a TV-program.

26.05.2011 In Aachen Bernd Tesch organised that the EIFELER NACHRICHTEN and AACHENER Zeitung (same owner) interviewed Nina and Hjalte on a party of Bernd Tesch. Out of it came 1 total page: Einmal rund um die Welt und ständig unter Strom.
Nicht erschiener Leserbrief von Bernd Tesch für die Aachener Nachrichten und Eifeler Nachrichten (26.06.2011):
Der Artikel über die erste Weltumrundung eines Elektro-Autos ist recht nett zur Unterhaltung geschrieben. Aber auf die eigentlichen Probleme wurde nicht hingewiesen. Dieses E-Auto hört man ab 3 m nicht mehr und es produziert null Abgase. In Athen, Istanbul, Rom, London und auch in deutschen Städten ersticken die Menschen fast vor Smog. Der Auto-Lärm Tag und Nacht macht das Leben dort unerträglich. Smog- und lärmfreie Städte der Zukunft werden ein ganz anders dimensioniertes Leben ermöglichen !  Der baldige Umstieg auf E-Autos würde auch eine gewaltige Energie-Einsparung bringen. Zwar können diese Autos ganz normal beschleunigen und max 130 km/Std. erreichen. Als energiesparende Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit hat Hjalte 80 km / h gewählt. Die Todes- und Unfallopfer im Verkehr durch Rasen würden drastisch reduziert.
In 2006 besuchten uns in Hammer die Japaner Hiroko und Kanichi Fujiwara auf der ersten Weltumrundung mit einem Elektro-Moped (5 Jahre). Die Dänen Hjalte und Nina Tin waren im April 2011 unsere Gäste auf ihrer Weltumrundung (1 Jahr). In 2013 soll die erste Weltumrundung non-stop per Flugzeuges mit nur Solar-Zellen erfolgen: Über Hammer in der Eifelů
Earlier motorcycle-travel-experiences:.... First time in an electric car. 1999 in an old Citroen 2CV crossing the Himalaya to Ladakh and touring all Pakistan, including the wild Shandur pass from Chitral to Gilgit (300 km in 1st gear). In 2003 again in 2CV from Denmark to Bagdad/Iraq, Turkey, Syria 2 weeks after the fall of Saddam Hussein.
22.04.2011 Hjalte and Nina visited us again. We gave an open fire-party for them. First open fire on the tour for them !
Acknowlegement from Bernd Tesch:
1. Nina and Hjalte are the most famous and wellknown family worldwide having done a lot of motorcycle tours with the kids on the bike. They wrote several books which were published in Danish and later in German. Unfortunately they did not manage that the books were published in English. All 17 editions of their books you find listed under www.tukutuku.de
2. Bernd Tesch visited Nina and HJalte in 1991 visiting most famous motorycyle travellers like Palle Huld and Björn Jörgensen (see there books under www.tukutuku.de) and Chrestine Hermansen (born Kohls) and Ove Jensen (Danish): 1980-1981 Around-The-World bwith a BMW. http://www.berndtesch.de/English/Continents/WorldAround/WorldAroundMotorcycle1971-1980.html
In this time Nina and Hjalte build their own houses which I called "Mongolian Palace". We visited each other several times each other. When they were here they called our house "our German home".
3. To drive an electric car with the technical standard today Around-The-World is not a luxurius tour.
Normaly they can drive ca. 200 km with one battery. If they have high voltage (380 V) and charge the battery two times a day they can drive 300 kms per day. Then they have to stop for a few hours to charge the battery. Depending if this is 110 voltage (in USA) or 220 V (Europe) or even 380 V in workshops it takes different hours. The more voltage you have the quicker the batteries are charged. You need different adapters (how many ??) to circle a world. Because all people in the countries and continents felt that Nina and Hjalte are doing a special thing they NEVER had to pay for charging the batteries on the whole trip !! This - of course - they did NOT know before. Of course the have the world.record: "Without paying for energy Around-The-Wolrd".
Because they had to save the energy of the batteries for driving they had no energy for "Air-Condition" to heat the car when it was -20°C or to cool down the car when it was plus 40°C outside.
So: to develope much better batteries wil be the challenge of the future !!
The end of Energy: A nice story happened when they reached us in Hammer - by feet... Driving on 22.04.2011 to Patricia and Bernd Tesch in Hammer the energy of the car-batteries came to a final end. 350 meters before reaching Patricia and Bernd the car stopped on the street "Am Hammerwerk". Just in front of a man Marco Gillessen who was working in his garden: "Can I help you ? You must be the Danish Around-The-World-Travellers who will be on the open-fire-party tonight!". Marco offered them kindly enough energy with a cabel !! This was the other world-record they made: "The only one situation on the whole trip RTW without energy".
13.02.2013 I found this articel: A "Kabinenroller" circled the world in an 80 days race with 30.000 kms 16 countries: .



In 80 Tagen um die Welt: Schweizer gewinnen Zero Emission Race

Tobias Wülser und Frank Loacker. Race: In 80 Tagen mit einem Elektrofahrzeug 30.000 Kilometern ohne CO2-Emissionen um die Welt: Das Schweizer Oerlikon Solar Racing-Team konnte mit dem E-Mobil Zerotracer das Zero Emission Race für sich entscheiden. Vier Elektromobile starten, drei kamen nach einem Rennen um den Globus an. Berliner Vectrix Team. Das südkoreanisches Elektroauto Power plaza EV schied unterwegs aus.
Route: CH (Genf) - Europa, Russland, Kasachstan, China, Kanada, USA, Mexiko und Marokko
Elektrofahrzeug. s, das seine Teilnehmer durch 16 Länder führte, auf dem Place des Nations ins Ziel. Noch nie zuvor ist es glungen, mit einem Elektrofahrzeug eine so große Distanz innerhalb von 80 Tagen zurückzulegen.
The Worst: Frost. Schnee. Regen. Hitze. Schotterpisten. Schlechte Straßen mit großen Schlaglöchern.
Das Kabinenmotorrad basiert auf einem Kevlar-Monocoque, wie es auch in der Formel 1 verwendet wird. Aufgrund seiner hohen aerodynamischen Effizienz (Cw-Wert 0,18) und dem leistungsstarken Elektroantrieb kann es der Zerotracer in puncto Beschleunigung mit nahezu jedem Sportwagen der Welt aufnehmen. Die Hochleistungsbatterie ermöglicht dem Elektrofahrzeug eine Reichweite von bis zu 350 Kilometern. Dank Schnellladetechnik ist die Batterie innerhalb von 30 Minuten zu 80 Prozent geladen. Für eine vollständige Ladung benötigt der Zerotracer unter zwei Stunden. Durch das Rennen konnte demonstriert werden, dass in der Entwicklung von Fahrzeugen, die durch erneuerbare Energien angetrieben werden, stetig Fortschritte gemacht werden.

Bettina Höbenreich, nickname “Bea” (German, 13.03.1983) and Helmut Koch, nickname „Helle“ (German, 26.09.1981)
- Plan Around-The-World. Bea and Helle plan to circle the world on two HONDA Transalp. They are a young couple from Upper Bavaria and riding around the world on two over 20 years old Honda Transalps. No, no BMW´s even if they live close to the BMW head quarter, they are just too expensive… :-)
Purpose of travel: Explore the world on two wheels. Make our own experiences. Form our own opinion about foreign countries and cultures.
Route:
June 2011 – September 2011: Europe (Germany – Czech Republic – Slovakia – Ukraine) – Asia (Russia – Kazakhstan – Mongolia – Siberia) ~ 16.000 km. Then shipping from Vladivostok/Russia to Bangkok/Thailand by sea freight.
September 2011 – April 2012: Asia (Thailand – Cambodia – Laos – Malaysia – Singapore – Indonesia – Timor Leste) ~ 16.000 km.
Then shipping from Dili/Timor Leste to Darwin/Australia by sea freight.
April 2012 – December 2013: Australia ~ 30.000 km Then shipping from Brisbane/Australia to Auckland/New Zealand by sea freight.
December 2013 –April 2014: New Zealand ~ 9.000 km
Plan April 2014 - 2014: After New Zealand we are planning to ship our bikes to South America and continue our travel up along the Panamercana, crossing South and Central America before entering the US and Canada afterwards.
The best: Hm… the breathtaking landscape in Mongolia. The unbelievable friendly and helpful people in Mongolia and Russia, especially Siberia. The funny people in Indonesia who made us love every day even if we were riding through the Monsoon rain… :-)
The worst: “Roads” in Mongolia. Crazy world-weary drivers in Indonesia.
Useful/important information and TIPS for others: If you wanna do a motorcycle trip around the world or just to some unusual country, just do it and don´t listen to the people that tell you that you are crazy and that it´s not possible! And if you need more detailed information to some countries, have a look at the category “Country Info” (http://www.timetoride.de/l%C3%A4nderinfos/) on our web page! :-)
Earlier motorcycle experiences: Helle is riding motorcycles since he is 18 and has been around Europe. Bea just started one year before we went on our trip, so not much time for earlier motorcycle experiences for her! :-)

26.08.2014 1st answer Hi Bernd, thanks a lot for contacting us. Your website is a great collection of information. My name is Nick Sarao. Me and my wife Kanchan Sarao travelled around the world covering 73 countries over all 6 continents on one BMW R1200GS Adventure and finished our tour in Texas, USA in april 2014. The name of our website is www.rideoverland.com or https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ride-Overland/157552390994528 You can copy paste our intro from our website to your website. If you need anything else, please let me know. Thanks Nick. Ride Overland With Kanchan & Nick www.rideoverland.com

05.09.2014 last quick and very kind updates.
B.T. To circle the world with two persons on one BMW R1200GS Adventure needs a compliment. Especially 150.000 kms. But the equipment on the beginning shown on the foto seems to be a luxury.one. Somebory really needs much less. To ride 150.000 kms by bike means 3,75 times RTW in 912 days. And appr. 164 km each day to ride. Possibly most of the tour has been on hard tamac road with the heavy load. But al least it takes time to ride 164 km EACH day in 2,5 years. If you ride such a speed you don´t see much. - The "normal range" would be 7 days x 250 km. Then 1 day stop. This is the calculation for much shorter trips in months.

"Cathy" Catherine Carrier and Grégoire Carrier "on route" in ??



2012: Catherine Carrier and Grégoire Carrier

08.12.2012 - 25.11.2014
"Cathy" Catherine Carrier (French, born 11.09.1976) and Grégoire Carrier (French, born 11.03.1977) www.offbeatentracks.eu www.parleschemins.eu
- Plan Around-The-World. "Greg" (1997 Suzuki 650 DR) and "Cath" (1997 Suzuki 350 DR) plan to ride any small and beautiful roads or trails Around-The-World.
Purpose of your travel: Enjoying life from a different perspective / point of view, meeting people from different countries and seing new places, playing the violin in uncommon locations.
Route: Plan: Europe (France - (Le Havre) - by ship to South America (Buenos Aires -), Australia, South East Asia, Japan, Siberia, Mongolia, Central Asia and Himalayas and, if still alive and happy, East Africa.
Route: Reality: Europe (France - (Le Havre) - ship to South America. We did about 55 000 km in South America in the Andes, trying to get to the most remote places, from Tierra del Fuego to Bogota. From Bogota we went to Asia (Japan (Tokyo) and rode to Russia (Sakkahline islands, then to Siberia) - Mongolia and Central Asia. From there, if we get the necessary visas, we will visit Iran and go back to Europe through Turkey. Probably 85 000 km altogether.
Highlights (until 09.2014): Honestly every country proved to be amazing. If we were to pick up just two or three, we have very nice memories of South Lipez in bolivia.... and we think we made a world record two up on a motorbike at 5800 m high when going up the Uturuncu volcano. Lots of fun times in Japan and Mongolia.
The worst: waiting for departure. Until 2014: dealing with families' angriness after a motorbike accident in Argentina.
Book or publication: We'll see if it's worth writing about it !
Useful information and TIPS for others: Give it a try. The most complicated part is to make up your decision to go.
Earlier Experiences of big Motorcycle-Tours: Different trips in Lebanon and Syria 1999-2000. Iceland 2011.

27.09.2014 From Kasachstan: "The alu-boxes have definitely saved my legs a few times already, and it is good because they are much easier to put back in shape than my legs".
02.01.2016 Next and last request.
B.T.: There are very few people from France riding "Around-The-World". This two French plan to ride a lot "off the main roads". Catherine has mounted two alu-boxes "Tesch-Travel-Tasche 6" on a Hepco-Becker-rack on a SUZUKI DR 350. The alu-boxes are fitted to the frame with the new "Tesch-Adapter-Schellen" to the rack.

- Plan Around-The-World. We left the Netherlands the first time on a 2 Honda Transalp XL600V motorcycles. After 9 months they broke down. So we went back to the Netherlands and bought 2 BMW R100GS motorcycles. On these bikes we will leave the Netherlands the second time on 30.03.2014.
Purpose of your travel: Want to see how the rest of the world looks like. Where do we want to settle? Off course also meeting other people and gaining lots of experiences. Most of all the trip must be fun!

Europe (Netherlands – Belgium – France – Spain) - Africa (Morocco – Mauritania – Senegal – Gambia – Guinea – Ivory Coast – Ghana – Togo – Benin – Nigeria – Cameroon – Gabon – Congo Brazzaville – Congo Kinshasa – Zambia – Botswana – Namibia – South Africa).
Next trip from 30.03.201: Europe (Netherlands – … – Turkey – Georgia – Azerbeidzjan) – Asia (Kazakhstan – Russia – Mongolia – Russia – ????). After that? South East Asia, India, back to Europe and then to America (Alaska, Canada, USA, Central America and South America).
Highlights on the first part: Riding through sand! Wild life in Africa. Extremely friendly and helpfull people in South Africa. Meeting other travelers.
The worst: Passports, credit cards, mobile phones and so on are stolen in Namibia.
Book or publication: Interview in a Dutch Motorcycle-Magazin (the Promotor in March 2014) and our blog website.
Useful / important informations and TIPS for others: Choose the motorbike you love and know not one that looks on paper as a good bike for the trip but you don't really like it.
Earlier Experiences of big Motorcycle-Tours: Not really big motorcycle tours. Our first motorbike trip was to the Nordkapp and back in 3 weeks that was on a BMW 1150 GSA and Suzuki Bandit. The second trip was a 2 week trip to Romania and back to test the Honda Transalps and off we went!

11.07.2011 30. September ist der Starttermin und das Ziel ist eine Weltumrundung in 2 Jahren über Indien, China und die USA. Die Route wird Schweiz/Österreich, Italien, Türkei, Iran, Pakistan, Indien, wieder Pakistan, China, USA, Europa und nach Hause sein. 
Dazu habe ich eine Frage, in deinem Archiv konnte ich leider nichts genaues finden: Am Mittwoch, den 13. Juli, werde ich 20 Jahre alt. Wenn ich es schaffe, die Welt in 2 Jahren einmal zu umrunden, bin ich dann der jüngste, bekannte Motorradweltumrunder? Ich weiß nur von Claudia Metz, die mit 20 Jahren losgefahren ist, jedoch meine ich die Welt auf ihrer langen Fahrt nicht in unter 2 Jahren umrundet.

- Plan Around-The-World. In september 2013 Ivana and Manu want to start as a first Spanish-Macedonian couple Around-The-World with one Yamaha XT 660Z.
Info: Gaia oder Ge (griechisch Γαῖα oder Γῆ, dorisch Γᾶ), deutsch auch Gäa, ist in der griechischen Mythologie die personifizierte Erde und eine der ersten Götter.
Purpose: Meeting different people and landscapes. Fighting against discrimination and mistrust, people usually have because of the unknown.
Route: macedonia - greece - turkey - iran - pakistan - india - nepal - thailand - laos - camboya - malasia - indonesia - australia - chile - argentina - bolivia - peru - ecuador - colombia - panama - costa rica - nicaragua - honduras - guatemala - mexico - usa - canada - alaska - spain
Highlights: To have lived to be known!
The worst: To be everything perfect
Book or publication: blog in www.aroundgaia.com  -  in the future documentary and book.
Useful information and TIPS for others: To be brave only for to take decision to start to make what they really feel. Later everything will go on.
Earlier Experiences of big Motorcycle-Tours: We do not have much ideas about bikes. It is true that we already did some trips in India. Morocco, and from Spain (Sevilla) to Macedonia (Skopje). But the real passion that move us is this trip.
We started travelling some years ago. Basicly our routine is to work in summer time on a greek island, selling the handicrafts we made ourselves to tourists. We like to show the people we left behind in our western socities how it is possible to live another way of life. And we want to show that the situation is not that bad. Also to present how this world is full of nice people and landscapes. So two years ago we decided the perfect way to travel is to ride RTW by motorbike, because this way we can get closer to that reality.

Norbert Berentz (German, birthday 02.05.1947)  no homepage facebook
- Norbert plans to circle somehow the world with a  Honda XL 600 V Transalp (PD 06).
Purpose of your travel: ..in die Welt hinaus und auch zu mir selbst hinein... 
Ich kann mir das leisten, weil ich wirklich frei bin (freigesetzt worden bin): Frei von Arbeitspflichten (bin jetzt Rentner), frei von Familienpflichten, frei von (Geld-) Sorgen und anderen selbstgesetzten inneren Zwängen.
Selbst die Reise ist kein Zwang, kein Muß - ich muß niemandem und auch nicht mir selbst etwas beweisen (deshalb auch kein Buch). Ich mache das nur, weil mir Reisen bisher am meisten Freude bereitet hat; wenn ich etwas besseres finde in der Welt, so bin ich offen und flexibel, denn "Pläne" sind dazu da, geändert zu werden (unfreiwillig oder auch freiwillig), denke ich.
Geplante Route: Die grobe "Planung" ist: Zunächst Afrika und Nahost, dann Asien (insbes. Kaukasus, Zentralasien, China-Mongolei), Rossija (1 Jahr Baikal und 1/2 Jahr Kamtschatka), danach Amerika (von Alaska bis Kap Horn) und dann wieder zurück nach Eurasien; vielleicht auch noch Inselhopping Karibik (Kuba!), Indonesien, Australien und Ozeanien.
Danach reichts aber auch; ich bin dann 75 (wenn nicht verunfallt und halb-/ tot), kriege das Bein kaum noch über die Sitzbank und werde mich in Indien niederlassen (ggf. auch im Rollstuhl); mache dann aber hoffentlich noch Naherholungsausflüge mit einer Royal Enfield quer durch den indischen 'Subkontinent'.
Gereiste Route: Europa (D - ??) - Africa (Morocco with West-Sahara (Febr.-Maerz ) - Mauretania (April in hot season) - Mali (April-Mai in hot season. One week "Schutzhaft" in Gao because of MLNA-activities on the last 120 km to Niger) - Burkina-Faso (Mai-Juni) - Benin (Juni) - Nigeria (Juni) - Cameroun (Juli-August) - Congo-Brazzaville (Sept.-Okt.) -
Plans afetr 10.2014: Congo Kinshasa - Angola (November) - Namibia (Dezember) - South Africa (Januar) - und dann geht's im Osten wieder nach Norden, inkl. Madagaskar, Kilimandscharo, Djibuti, Jemen ...   InchAllah !! Danach soll kommen der Kaukasus, Zentralasien, China, M

30.10.2015: Zansibar: ch gruesse dich aus Zanzibar; werde gleich meine Inselrundfahrt starten.Bisher hat mich noch keiner nach dem Carnet gefragt - und ich frage halt auch nicht nach dem Zoll; mein Visastempel im Pass ist voellig ausreichend. Nach Kilimandscharo, Serengeti Ende November geht's dann wohl weiter ueber Kenia, Aethiopien, Djibuti, Jemen, Oman nach Iran und Europa.Vielleicht bin ich am 22.4. dann in Malmedy - doch die Zeit draengt: Es warten die Wolga-Tour, Kasachstan und Zentralasien, China, Mongolia und der BaikBis dann mal wieder,al-See auf mich, denn ich muss dort noch vor Wintereinbruch eintreffen. Ueberwintert wird dann am Baikal !! Norbert Berentz  (Honda Transalp).

01.02.2016 Martin Steiner-Zülch hat 2009/2010 in Äthiopien/Adis Abeba gewohnt. Er gab Norbert jetzt diese Infos:
Als wir in Addis gewohnt haben, war ein Schweizer Weltumrunder mit Honda Africa Twin bei uns zu Gast, der dann weiter die Route Äthiopien-Sudan-Fähre (WadiHalfa-Assuan)-Ägypten gefahren ist. Vielleicht kontaktierst Du ihn mal, wie er das mit den Formalitäten damals geschafft hat. Wenn ich mich an seine Berichte erinnere, war es nicht einfach, aber irgendwie hat er es hinbekommen... Seine website mit Kontaktdaten ist http://www.claudioangelini.ch/
In Addis selber ist ein sehr guter Anlaufpunkt Wim's Holland House ganz in der Nähe des alten Bahnhofs. Dort trifft man am ehesten andere Biker zwecks Info-Austausch. Auch die Betreiber selber haben gute Tipps.
Und als ich da war, gab es den "ersten Motorradclub Äthiopiens" - gegründet von einer Truppe lustiger Moto-begeisterter Italiener. Bei denen könntest Du Dich auch mal melden, die könnten auch was wissen. Der Club heißt "Gelada Riders"; allerdings sehe ich gerade, dass deren website mittlerweile offline ist. Evtl. existiert der Club also nicht mehr. Aber einer von den Jungs organisiert auch kommerziell Motorradreisen - er heißt Flavio, hier ist seine Website: http://www.africaridingadventures.com/index.html Der ist nett und hilfsbereit und hat evtl. auch Tipps.
Bernds Tipp mit den Cargo-Flugzeugen ist auch gut. Mit einem solchen kam damals unser Auto von Deutschland nach Äthiopien. Bei den horrenden Preisen auf dem Gebrauchtmarkt war es seinerzeit günstiger, ein Auto einzufliegen als vor Ort eins zu kaufen... Falls Du Dich für diese Variante entscheidest, wünsche ich Dir auf jeden Fall ein starkes Nervenkostüm für die Formalitäten... ;-)

2014. Steph met a "small" elefant in ??.



Steph Jeavons. Fotos from her website.

23.03.2014 - ?? ca. 30.06.2015 ( max 2 years )
Steph Jeavons (British, born 1976) www.onestephbeyond.com
- Plan Solo Around-The-World with a red motorcycle. Steph is the owner of "Red Moto Adventures" www.redmotoadventures.co.uk . She grew up a 20-year old son in North Wales. She has been around bikes most of her life with both parents and one of her two sisters riding as well. Her grandmother even rode bikes during the war! I think you can safely say it's in the blood.
She plans to circumnavigate the globe visiting at least 42 countries and hitting at least 6 continents. Steph aims to do this in 15 months to 2 years avoiding all motorways and main roads and living mainly in her two man tent with only the things she can carry on her bike.
I am about to attempt to ride an overloaded top heavy 250cc motorbike around the world on my own. Not only that, I am going to try and sail it to Antarctica in 10 months time across rough seas on a small yacht! I don't even like being on the sea! In fact I get sea sick! Wont it be worth it though? What sights await me?
Purpose: To find happiness, fulfillment, and value in living. To seek out, experience and share all of the pleasures and joys that life on two wheels has to offer. - Catering for all level of riders, whether you are a road rider, off roader or a wannabe biker!!
his adventure isn't about speed. It's not really even about the bike. It's about living, learning and enjoying! Doing this trip solo on a bike just opens up all the senses and allows me to be part of my environment.
Info: Steph's current budget for the entire trip is tiny, allowing herself just £5 a day for food." I will have to be creative in all aspects of this journey to make the money stretch. I am relying on the kindness of strangers to give me the odd night in a comfy bed with a warm shower and a nice meal if I'm luck! This is where the wonders of social media play a part"
Route: My route will be all back roads and dirt tracks wherever possible. I fully intend on keeping away from the motorways and enjoying seeing the world at a civilised pace. So often we rush through life, busy planning our future and not enjoying the now. Here the journey takes over and the destination is really not important! Steph would love to become the first Brit to include all 7 continents on her solo circumnavigation. This has only ever been achieved by 4 other people in the world (that we know of).
Steph also hopes to raise awareness for a great charity called Rally4Life which was set up by good friends of hers from Canada in 2009.
Rally4Life is  a Registered Charity, created from the founders’ vision to combine the desire to participate in adventurous life-changing activities whilst bringing meaning to those exploits by giving back to those in need. See website for more informationrally4life.org
Great Britain (London) - ??- country by country please

- Around-The-World. Franz (BMR R 100 GS PD) and Theo (BMW R 100 GS PD) plan to circle the world in 7 months: 6 continents. 46 countries. 67.000 km.
Purpose: The reason is to make governments worldwide aware of the food crisis.
Helping Hands – Giving Life: 1 billion people go hungry worldwide. Every day 24.000 people die of hunger. Every 6 seconds a child dies of hunger. Kelz and Stelzl want people from around the world to sign the petition of the UN’s world nutrition organization, FAO, to reduce chronic hunger.The two activists are aware that 24,000 people die daily from hunger. They are trying to reduce that number by calling out to the world population to sign the FAO petition during their motor cycle trip Around-The-World.   Monetary donations are not the focus of their trip. Instead, Kelz and Stelzl want governments to make the hunger crisis a permanent and top priority within their budget plans.

06.11.2013 Route zweite Planung:
Ja, und bei der Strecke ist zurzeit einiges offen, wie z. B. Ägypten, da werden Theo und ich bei unserem nächsten Treffen im Dezember 2013 sicher noch gute Lösungen finden.
Auch werden wir einige Streckenstücke mit der Bahn zurücklegen, wie z. B. die Rückfahrt durch Sibirien im Oktober mit der Transsibirischen Eisenbahn. Aber wie sagt Theo immer:„Die endgültige Strecke werden wir nach der Ankunft kennen“ ;-)

The worst: There are one billion humans on this planet that suffer from hunger.  
Book or publication
(about your tour): Yes, in 2015
My useful information and TIPS for others: after 2014
Earlier experinences: Brotherhood and peace in the world! Theo Kelz has circled the globe with his motor cycle since 2006. He is mediator and conflict manager, and most of all a police man. In 1994, he lost both his lower arms in a work accident involving a bomb while on duty as an explosives expert. His dream of two new hands came true in March of 2000 when he received a double hand transplant in a spectacular operation at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. Currently, this operation remains the most successful double hand transplant worldwide.
Franz Stelzl accomplished his first trip around the globe by motor cycle in 2003. His travel book and journal accompanied Theo Kelz on his world trip in 2006. Since then Kelz and Stelzl have become close friends. Franz Stelzl grew up in Styria and has lived in Vorarlberg for 32 years. He originally apprenticed to become a mechanic, and then worked his way up from sales manager to academic coach and organizational consultant. He also has a Master of Science degree. He is known to be a visionary. In his work. Stelzl always remembers that human beings are at the centre of learning and personal growth.
25.01.2013 First information by Franz.
30.01.2013 1st information for summary.
30.01.2013 B.T. phoned with Franz Stelzl: 250 km avarage on each day and 1 day free is the maximum on such a route. It is even too quick all over the distance and the long time of 7 months. Like this it becomes more a race than a travel. And too much dangerous. There is a need to have PLAN B to shorten the trip. And and plan C if they will travel each alone RTW.
B.T. The plan is to ride 400 km each day and to rest one day each week. Out of my long experience this is not normal and not possible. Even if it would be 250 km each day (normal and recommendable distance) it would be hard to succeed over such a long period as 7 months.
02.04.2014 Erste Infos aus Bulgarien. Karlheinz Troi reist mit bis zur Türkei / Ismir.
08.2014 B.T. The first part of the planned trip ended after Transafrica because Theo touched the earth after the wind blow too much when he overtook a lorry. - A general bis mistake was that they took two tires in reserve on the back of the bikes. Just because they were sponsored abd they wanted to save money. Even in wrong positions mostly. Today you get.

+ Around-The-World. Rhys circled solo the world on a Triumph in 441 days (63 weeeks) 56,400 miles through 71 countries. 51 consequtive capital cities. 6 continents.
Purpose: Double World Record Ride attempt. On the 2nd May 2014 I, Rhys Lawrey left London to set out to break the Guinness World Record for the ‘Most Consecutive Capital Cities Visited by Motorcycle' as well as setting a new World Record for 'The Youngest Person to Circumnavigate the World by Motorcycle’.

Route:

World Records

What are the world records I’m attempting and how do they work? I plan to be the “Youngest Person to Circumnavigate the World by Motorcycle”. To properly say circumnavigate the world on land for such a record, below are the bullet point rules of which I will follow and how my route has been design to make sure I properly circumnavigate the world and become the youngest person by the end of the journey. • Start and finish from the same location - London. • The journey should involve riding the motorcycle in six continents (Antarctica excluded) - Europe, Asia, Australasia, North America, South America & Africa  • Cross two antipodes points, (Unsure what antipodes mean, click here.) - Spain and New Zealand. • The rider should ride overland across the Equator at least once. Meaning you ride both north and south hemisphere. • The same motorcycle should be used for the entire journey. • The journey must be a minimum of 25,000 miles (40,000 kms), - representing the Earth’s circumference. • The age of the individual should be taken on the completion of the journey. So if all goes according to plan, I will finish aged 23 years, 11 months. However, that's only one record. The second is much bigger and harder. I plan to DEMOLISH the current Guinness World Record for the “Most Consecutive Capital Cities Visited by Motorcycle” and make it virtually impossible to beat. The rules by Guinness World Records for this one are really strict; • This record is for the most consecutive capital cities visited on a motorcycle without returning to the point of origin. • A consecutive visit means that you travel directly from one capital city to another with no rest stops in between except for refuelling and border crossings. • The participant can only take prolonged rest breaks once he/she arrives at a capital city. • There is no time limit for this record. • While there is no time limit, if the participant is inactive in one capital city for more than 14 days the record attempt will be deemed over. • A visit to a capital city is defined as visiting ONE of the following landmarks if found within the city centre: Town Hall, National Theatre, Seat of Government, Main transport hub (train station or bus station) or Main Square. • No capital city may be counted more than once on the journey. • Any one capital can only be "revisited" once while on the journey. Any additional visits and the attempt will be disqualified.

Thomas Kintzinger (German, birthday 03.09.1993) www.insunbekannte.com
- Plan Around-The-World.
Thomas plans to travel solo around the World with a Yamaha XTZ 750 Super Tenere (110.000 kms before start).
Purpose of your travel:  Fun. Meet other people and culture, to get out of here.
Route: Europe Plan: 6.000 kms (Germany - Austria - Slowenia - Croatia - Bosnia - Montenegro - Albania - Greek - Turkey) - Asia 15.000 kms (Georgia - Aserbeidschan - (Shipping)- Turkmenistan - Uzbekistan- Kyrgistan - Kasachstan - Russia - Mongolia - Russia Wladiwostok) - North-America 6.000 kms (Ship the Bike from Wladivostok or from South Korea to Vancouver - New York) -  Europe 1.000 kms (Bike by ship to Hamburg/Germany).

Grenzabfertigung aufwendig beim Zoll. Kennen kein Carnet de Passage), Iran (12.200 km- ?).
As far as I understand Dirk Meifort, who started as well from the 57th. Mc-Meeting for world-travellers from Germany to India, rode with him from Germany as far as Turkey..
Asia (Iran - Armenia - Georgia - Russia(Tschetchenia) - Kasachstan - Usbekistan - Tajikistan - Kirgistan - Kasachstan - Russia (Novosibirsk - Primorje). In Krasnojarsk (Russia) I had an accident with the XT 600: Broken wrist and broken bike. From there I took a car to Vladivostok and flew to Asia (Singapur) - by plane to Borneo. In Borneo I rented for two weeks a scooter for two weeks from Kuta Kinabalu around Sabah (north Borneo). By plane Asia (Borneo, Kuala Lumpur) to North-America (USA, San Francisco). I bought a new (or a used one ?) motorcycle Suzuki DR650 in USA (California). Preparation of a rack for alu-boxes "Tesch Travel Taschen".
- Plan from december 2015: Down California Coast. Baja California to La Paz Christmas in Mexico or Belize. Riding Motorcycle through all countries in South-America. End in august/september 2015 in Brazil.
Highlights: I want to find out what I am able to do. Feel Freedom. Explore the World. Take pictures an videos. To share them with my familiy and friends. Do something realy special, before I begin to study and get the obligation to the working marked.
The worst that can happen: My motorcycle breaks down on the first kilometers.... An accident in the middle of nowhere. My gear (especially my video gear) gets stolen.
Book or publication: I will have an Online-Blog and a Facebook-Page. There I will share pictures and videos. May be I cut a little movie about my tour when I am back...
Useful / important informations and TIPS for others: ....??
Earlier Experiences of big Motorcycle-Tours: I dont have a lot of experience on motorcycle tours. I often travel with the backpacker. I had visited Brazil (the east coast). Iceland (travel around with a small rented car). Ireland. My only bigger motorcycle tour was last summer. I rode my Yamaha to Korsika for 10 days.

Special thoughts of Bernd Tesch:

During YOU Motorcycle-Traveller live:

The highest law of our universe is that it moves continually because of the opposite potentials of plus (+) and minus (-) powers. This means for our beloved world that even what you see on earth changes all the time. Even big mountains change by erosion through heat and cold, rain and ice and sand. Imagine what frozen ice can destroy! So you can never travel to the same place like it was before. Even if you do not notice the change it has changed. So it is not only worth to travel to new places but see old places again !

After YOU Motorcycle-Traveller die:
01.08.2000 After I updated this homepage several times with some hundred hours of work Patricia and I took some hours off. We wanted to relax in the nearby forest EIFEL conquering a water canal maximum 3 meters wide in the end coming out of the ground about ca. 9 kms somewhere up the hills. We both liked the nature very much with all the greens, sunshine and shade. During this walk we loved to discover a group of some hundred years old beech-trees (Buchen).
Then Patricia said: "In my next life I would like to be a beech-tree". This caused some thoughts in me: After we die 90 % water of our body will first go in the ground. It could be that a part of this water will help to create another plant or even a tree. So you mc-traveller could be a part of a beech-tree. Some of this water will evaporate in the air. Then the wind will blow your water somewhere and it will come down on earth or in the sea again. If the water comes down on earth a plant could grow with your water. A Motorcycle-Traveller could eat this plant. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again. Or your rain could fall in a small river and another mc-traveller drinks clear water out of this river. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again.

The very rest of your 10 % material could be eaten by bacteries. Bigger animals could eat these. Possibly this animal could be eaten by another animal and this by a mc-traveller. Then you are a part of a mc-traveller again. Possibly this mc-traveller will read this homepage. Then your soul is connected with your material again. This are some possible ways that YOU Mc-Traveller never die and will live for long times as a Motorcycle-TRAVELLER.

5 billion (Milliarden) years later ALL Motorcycle-Travellers will die:
Sun will kill all Motorcycle-Travellers. The sun will have extended so much in size because the indifference between gravity and escaping energy that she reaches the earth. All the heat will destroy all life on earth including ALL MOTORCYCE-TRAVELLERS. That´s it !
I hope you liked reeding this. I am just waiting for YOUR email helping me to update A LIFELONG job with passion.

2012 From Internet: Brazilian student on round-the-world mission
10 November 2003 Media release
ROUND THE WORLD MOTORCYCLIST STOPS IN NZ.
Brazilian round-the-world motorcyclist Raphael Karran is taking time out in New Zealand to improve his English language skills for two months in Hamilton.
At an education fair in Brazil, Raphael heard about the courses run by the Language Institute at Waikato University and applied for a scholarship to coincide with his time in Australasia. The Institute granted him one and is planning to use Raphael’s story to help with promotion in Brazil.
Raphael, who is reporting for a Brazilian motorcycle magazine called Motociclismo Magazine, has already traveled 90,000 km through South and North America, Europe, Asia and part of Australia. He will return to Perth in December to continue his mission to Sydney, then finally to Africa.
He hasn’t been able to bring his bike with him to New Zealand because his visit here is only eight weeks and he would have had to disassemble his bike, have it quarantined, obtain registration and warrant certificates etc. This would have left him very little time to utilise it. His main purpose for visiting New Zealand is to improve his English and experience a bit of Kiwi culture.
Raphael dreamed of making the round-the-world trip since he was very young, and finally decided to do the trip while sitting in a traffic jam in Sao Paulo.
25.10.2012 Asked Emilio Scotto if he knows how to contact him.

- Plan Around-The-World.
We are planning to go around the world, probably breaking the record of the longest motorcycle ride ever done by a couple (around 100,000 miles / 160.000 km).We are riding together, each with a BMW F650GS/Dakar mounted with Touratech 39L tanks. We trained 8 weeks in Spain and Morocco.
Purpose of travel: Fun. Meeting the best girls / boys . Learn from people and share with others.
Route so far has been: Europe (France) by boat to Africa (Tunisia, Algeria, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya (22,08.2003). The planned route from Kenya is: down Africa to Capetown, ship to Rio, down to Ushuaia, up to San Francisco, ship to Sydney, go all over the place in Australia, ship to Indonesia, drive all over the place in Thailand, Cambodge, Laos and Vietnam, ship to Nepal, drive all over India, then back to Europe for a big tour of the continent.

- How many people approximately (and how many women) have completed a round-the-world trip on a motorcycle?
- Do you know if a woman has successfully completed a round-the-world trip that includes crossing all of Africa including the Sahara? (ie. Morocco or Tunisia through South Africa by land). My girlfriend is up for the challenge. Thanks, Pierre

+ Around The World. On one (?) BMW R1150GS. http:/www.mervandruth.com http://www.motorcycleadventure.dsl.pipex.com/
Merv and Ruth Homer started out on a motorcycle adventure, which took them through 32 countries over a period of 2 years. To raise money for the trip they sold their house, in the UK, bought a shaft-drive motorcycle and necessary equipment.
They had planned an overland route from the UK to Malaysia and then from Canada to Chile. These plans soon changed when war and civil unrest broke
out along the way. Undeterred, they went through the Middle East shortly after 9/11.2001 and entered Nepal when it was in a State of Emergency.
Purpose of travel: It was incredibly difficult leaving behind all their friends and family - but it was a journey they needed to do as they struggled to come to terms with the loss of their youngest daughter.
Route
: The epic 43,000-mile journey took them through France, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, India, Nepal, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Canada, USA, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Spain, Andorra and Germany.
Highlights: A motorcycle was the perfect vehicle for the adventure. Allowing them to travel where they wanted, when they wanted. From the remote rain forest regions to the centre of the Atacama desert - where it hardly ever rains - the driest desert on earth."

North America ( Canada - USA - Mexico - Honduras - Guatemala - Costa Rica - Panama ) - ??how did you and the bike flew / ship ?? to South America) Peru - Chile - Argentina - Uruguay ) - ??how did you and the bike flew to ?? Europe ( Spain - Andorra and Germany - Great Britain ??). Highlights: A motorcycle was the perfect vehicle for the adventure. Allowing them to travel where they wanted, when they wanted. From the remote rain forest regions to the centre of the Atacama desert - where it hardly ever rains - the driest desert on earth."

Martin Didier (living in Australia but born in France 1957) www.ride4kids.t2u.com
- Plan Around-The-World. Martin wants a Motorcyle Adventure and Documentary. He wants a motorcycle adventure for the benefit of underprivileged children. In conjunction with World Vision. I am embarking on Ride4Kids, an around-the-world overland trip on a motorcycle.
The best: The best of the Ride4Kids project include a motorcycle journey around the world including some of the world’s poorest and most rugged countries. Raising money for World Vision while visiting World Vision projects along the way. The filming of two documentaries; the first on the lives of children in Africa, Siberia and South America and the second on the adventures encountered during the trip; and ·the ability of people around the world to follow my journey through the Ride4Kids website. All proceeds raised from the screening of the documentaries will be donated to World Vision.The public is also invited to donate money or sponsor children through the Ride4Kids website.
I’ve embarked on the Ride4Kids project out of a desire to help underprivileged children and raise awareness of their standard of living. I think it will also be a great adventure and a remarkable achievement.
Earlier experiences: 1996 -1997 Australia (Melbourne) to France (Paris) overland, which was also made into a documentary.
Route: Australia (Melbourne - riding to Perth) - and then flying to Africa (South Africa (Cape Town) - Botswana - Zambia - Tanzania - Uganda - Kenya - Ethiopia - Sudan ? . Egypt) - Asia (Jordan - Syria) - Europe (Turkey - Ukraine - ? - Poland - Russia) - Asia (Russia, Siberia - Japan) - North-America (Canada - USA - Mexico - Guatemala - Honduras - Nicaragua - Panama) - South America (Colombia - Ecuador - Peru - Bolivia - Argentina).

Jens Becker (German, 05.03.1967) no website
- Plan Around-The-World. Jens plans to circle solo the world with a BMW F 650 GS Dakar within 1,5 year.
Purpose of my travel: get the head free, reduce stress, look further, get to know other lanscapes and people.
20 years ago in 1989, when I read "Jupiter´s Travels", I planned to start my trip around the World with my bike (today a BMW F 650 GS Dakar) when my children are grown up! This will be in 2017, when my daughters are adult. The last day to leave will be my 50th birthday, in March 2017.
Before, I went to different destinations in Europe: Germany, Alpes (Swiss, Austria, France); Italy (Dolomites); Denmark; Norway (the South); England; France (Provence); Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia); Scandinavia (Sweden, Finland).
Route around the world: Europe (Germany - Swiss - Italy - Greece - Turkey ) - Asia (Iran- Pakistan - India - Thailand- Indonesia) - Australia- North America (USA- Mexico- Guatemala - Honduras - Nicaragua - Costa Rica - Panama)- South America (Colombia - Ecuador - Chile - Argentinia) - Africa (South Africa - Mozambique - Tanzania - Kenia - Ethiopia - Sudan - Egypt) - Europe (Greece - Italy - Austria - home again...).
Highlights on tour: Being on the road in other landscapes! Highlights are to get know other countries, people, other ways of life,....
The worst so far until 2009: A one-week-trouble with my bike in Finland. So I had to rent a CAR to visit Lapland.
My useful information and TIPS for others: Simply go and open your eyes; the smaler your group is (I like do ride alone), the better you get contact to the people.
