ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers

Featuring Grant Johnson, Brian Rix, Shirley Hardy-Rix, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin. 

Basic Mechanical Knowledge For Motorcycle Travel: What is the absolute minimum mechanical knowledge you should have before undertaking an extended trip? And what things should you be checking regularly to prevent or foresee possible breakdowns?

Choosing a Travel Mate: How to figure out if you’re compatible? Do you do a short run/overnight first or? How do you handle it when on the road for a time, you decide it isn’t working and you want to go it alone? Especially if you’re in a far off place?

ARR RAW Listeners Questions Answered:

James Gale:  How stinky is too stinky? I'm interested to know what the esteemed RAW panel smell like. (No, my curiosity is not born of a fetish. It's purely practical and social). When you're going on a long journey what do you do about clean clothes? How many changes of clothes are reasonable given the lack of a chest-of-drawers and limited cupboard space on a bike? Do you plan to stop in towns and use a laundromat or motel facility? Do you take some soap and wash your clothes in a river? Or do you keep riding until the police arrest you for excessive air pollution?

Noel Bowerman: What place did you find confronting? How did you come to terms with it?

Gary Turner: What do you do when you have free time on the trip? I.E. reading, sleep, laundry, drinking?

ARR RAW Listeners Questions Answered:

Scott McQueen: What are costs like on RTW trips? How do you not run out of money?

Mike Jacobson: Can Graham recommend some useful hair products for dry hair I can use in the coming Australian summer? ;) Serious question this time: charging technology on a motorcycle. Phones are relatively easy to charge on a bike if you've fitted a USB port - but laptops and some cameras' need different voltages than the 5V USB supplies or the 12V a cigarette style socket or simple connector powered from the bikes' system will give you . Do you invest in specialized chargers that will run on a 12V power supply or cross your fingers and hope to be able to plug into a 120V/240V mains power socket when the need arises? Also, how much equipment can you actually charge on your bike before you start stressing the bikes' electrics?

TJ Lyons: How do you lock up your motorcycle when traveling? Do you use a chain or heavy duty cable or nothing? I have heard all of you mention so many great tips, but I do not recall anyone every mentioning if they do anything to secure their bike at night.

Alex Druien: How do you get started in a quest around the world?

**If you have a question for the RAW panel, send it to us by filling out the form at https://www.adventureriderradio.com/rawquestion/.

Paul Crowder: My question would be what's the best continent to tour in terms of ease versus experience for a traveller with time constraints?

Grant’s question to the listener:

"What keeps you from going on a trip? Also, what got you going?"

ARR RAW Round Table Discussions With Travellers

On this months RAW, at the round table we discuss travelling in poverty stricken areas, how we make our dreams of motorcycle travel come true, being an adventure addict and dealing with wanderlust.

Travel in Poverty Stricken Areas: When we are travelling we often spend a lot of time in areas where people are poverty stricken or suffering in general because they have so little. How do you deal with that?  

Dreams are where adventures begin: Why do you think you actually managed to do your big trip when statistically most dreamt about don’t end up happening?

Adventure Addict: Do you think that after a time you become an adventure addict? As in, you know what the possibilities are, that you can make dreams come alive and therefore, want more. If you do become one, is there anything wrong with that?

Living with wanderlust: For example, you wander for a period of time, go back home and soon find yourself itching to go again, so you pick up and go again. Obviously some people will think it’s really cool and incredible what you’re doing, and others will think that you’re a little off your nut. How do we deal with society’s expectations of us (what society considers “normal”) and maintain our wanderlust?

We put it to our listeners to let us know what questions they had for the panel on ARR RAW. What a fantastic response we got, so many questions that it isn't possible to answer them all in this one episode. So, we chose a few and asked Grant, Graham, Sam, Shirley and Brian for their input. 

In this episode we discuss what we're noticing about younger travellers, what's the most interesting or useful item found on the road, destination gems and impressive places discovered, resolving dental emergencies, most embarrassing motorcycle travel stories and luxury items you just can't leave home without.

Jim Martin and the co-hosts on ARR RAW talk about what you need to consider when looking for a place to put your head down for the night, and how to handle doing maintenance on your bike when travelling.

Ideal Camping:

  • when choosing somewhere to camp overnight, what are the things you look for that make an ideal camp spot? 
  • camp away or near the road?
  • do you look for a site with water, or not worry about it?
  • do you plan ahead or wing it?
  • what time of day do you settle for the night?
  • what if you’re in an urban area, have you ever just found an out of the way spot or truck stop and set up for the night? 
  • unusual camping experiences

Moto Maintenance

  • best ways to get work done?
  • deciding on reputable shops?

Doing it yourself:

  • where to work?
  • what to do with old oil?
  • setting up your work area?
  • essential lubricants to travel with (to be carried)
  • on-tool items that must be carried (duct tape, zip ties - what else?) good for quick fixes

Featuring Shirley Hardy-Rix & Brian Rix, Grant Johnson, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin

On this episode, Jim Martin and the RAW co-hosts talk about handling medications, how to get prescriptions filled, and more. And if you're planning on taking a motorcycle trip in the near future, they've got some great tips on what you need to consider when budgeting for your adventure.

Handling Prescription Medications: Thanks to Gary from Memphis who wrote to ask us about how to get his prescription meds, including controlled substances, while traveling outside of the Canada and the United States.

Thanks to Sam Manicom for providing the following links:

International Narcotics Control Board: https://www.incb.org/ 
https://www.incb.org/incb/en/psychotropic-substances/travellers_guidelines.html

The Costs Involved on a Motorcycle Trip: When planning a motorcycle adventure, especially an extended one, there's a lot of consideration put in to cost. Making sure you have what you need to cover all expenses plus any unexpected ones is really important, particularly when in foreign countries. Of course, you need to figure out a budget before you go, so we've got together and discussed what you can expect and what you should plan on. 

•fuel 
•food 
•visas, special permits, overstaying visa 
•accommodations
•repairs
•carnets
•medical insurance
•bike insurance
•shipping
•vaccinations (sam)
•bike consumables such as tyres 
•medical needs (not covered by insurance)
•city accommodations and transport costs when dealing with getting bike out of port 
•emergency money
•and more... 

Thanks again to Sam Manicom, for this link to an informative site: www.mytravelcost.com
www.mytravelcost.com/petrol-prices/

What about dollar per day? Here is what HU says… 

To plan your budget, here's some rough guidelines:

"First-tier" countries such as northern Europe, US$60-80 a day and up per person.
"Second-tier" countries such as the rest of Europe, Canada and the USA, US$40-60 a day per person.
"Third-tier" countries, such as Latin America, US$30 a day is considered enough for the average budget traveller, not counting major items like shipping the bike - or yourself, and repairs and servicing.
"Fourth-tier" countries, parts of Africa and Asia, can be done for less, many for less than US$20 day, especially in Asia.

And thanks to Grant Johnson, read more about trip costs on Horizons Unlimited at http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/get-ready/budgeting and http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/shipping

DIARRHEA: Not the most pleasant of topics, but it did come up at the end of the episode, when Graham Field and Grant Johnson had some opinions on this messy subject. If you're interested in some more information, Grant from HU has provided some links:

ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers - Episode 13

Featuring Shirley Hardy-Rix & Brian Rix, Grant Johnson, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin

Technology & Motorcycles: Honda's Self Balancing Motorcycle, ABS Brakes, Traction Control and more. How does new technology affect motorcycling as a whole? The advantages to the industry with regards to a declining motorcycle population, does or will the new technology encourage new riders needed such as women, younger, smaller riders? 

Pushing Limits, Red Flag Dangers, Being a Rebel: When you’re riding how do you determine what your limits are? How do you know when something is dangerous for you? Is it something you learn as you go? Do you go by your gut feeling? Are we hardwired to adapt to environments, to assess dangers, react to them and take action? Have you ever done something which may be considered by some to be “crazy” or a “stupid decision” perhaps “rebellious”, where you may have looked back and thought I got lucky with that or that you may have regretted and learned from? Did you see the danger flags and ignore them? Is an area or situation not dangerous just because you made it through okay?

Motorcycle Weight/Bulk vs Comfort

As Suggested by RAW listener, Paul Crowder “My suggested topic is. On a long trip is it worth sacrificing weight savings for comfort. In particular taking a larger tent and chair for when you are forced to hole up in bad weather.”

How do you balance?

What are you personal preferences?

Are there things you take that aren’t the norm. Why?

 

Getting in to the Groove - How Long Does it Take?

As Suggested by RAW Listener, Rachel Lawson: “I’ve been lucky to do a couple of EU trips this year and all good but I've found I've suddenly got the urge to go home.  I worry if I did a "big trip", how would I get over that feeling. How do you cope & overcome that?”

Under Garments for Riding

What is your choice underwear?

Do you use bicycle shorts, rider undies...

 

Fitness for Long Distance Motorcycle Riding

Is there anything you do to stay fit for riding at home? And while on a trip?

Dealing with stiffness, chafing etc. 

Tips for personal comfort.

ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers - Episode 9

Featuring Shirley Hardy-Rix & Brian Rix, Grant Johnson, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin. 

Tips for Your First Adventure Motorcycle Trip:
Some of the things we talk about are:
- fuel - especially for people who ride bikes that take premium - different grades of fuel - when you go to the pumps how do you handle it in different countries
- currency - do you need to get money in each country - can you count on using debit or credit? 
- distance - how much ground should you plan to cover, should you plan on distance? What’s comfortable to do? Does it depends what type of roads you’re driving.
- spares - spare key, spare prescription glasses, spare ?
...and more...

Biker Camaraderie and Experiences of it - suggested by Graham Field
Discussing the camaraderie between bikers and the difference in camaraderie from the west to the east according to Graham. Some anecdotal stories of helping someone or being helped, just because both are bikers.

Rain Gear - suggested by Roberto Lara: What waterproof gear option do you prefer: rain suit, inner waterproof layers, outter layer as part of the riding jacket + pants, a plastic poncho or a large (black) garbage bag? ... oh! Or no waterproof gear at all?

ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers - Episode 9

Featuring Grant Johnson, Sam Manicom, Graham Field and Jim Martin. 

Recorded live at Canwest HUBB Meet in Nakusp, BC - www.horizonsunlimited.com

Trains and Ferries
What’s involved?
Tie-downs? Blocks under bike? Your methods.
Pitfalls to be aware of.
Security - Should I stay with my bike etc…?
Are some countries worse for?…
Stories of things gone wrong on these - hopefully with a lesson to learn.

Can I Stay at Your House?
A theme that is gaining in popularity, or at least in the travel world:  Boldly asking for people to put you up and help you out while travelling. Either accommodations, garage use, tools whatever.
Is this proper Moto travel etiquette?
What does the host get from the exchange?
What is expected of you while enjoying hospitality?
How do you ask? Facebook post? Chance meeting? Forums? All of the above?
When are you asking too much?
When have you overstayed your welcome? And how to avoid that.
In poverty stricken countries - locals seem to give all they have - is it responsible to take from these people and claim we have a tight budget and are basically broke, when we don’t know what it like to be in that position and in no way are even close? Or is it a mutual exchange?

ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers.

Grant Johnson, Brian Rix, Shirley Hardy-Rix, Sam Manicom and Jim Martin. With guests Susan Johnson and Rene Cormier.

 

Episode 5 Topics:

Doing it With a Partner:

 

This topic was inspired by Shirley & Brian who on their travels met many men living their dream that missed their other half. Some had their partner fly in to travel with them for a while, others had relationships break up on the road or falter while away. One person they knew even travelled with a helmet hoping to meet that special someone.

- discussions on riding with your partner, pros and cons

 

Laptop Survival:

Ideas on taking care of your laptop during travel. Do you really need one? Best methods for photo storage, etc. 

 

Newbie Travelling Motorcycle Riders:

A lot of the time, we hear that people plan a ride and take off for their multi country trip with not much riding experience, and quite often there are issues that arise becasue of a lack of riding skills.

- should a course be considered before embarking on a big trip?

-advice for someone who doesn't have much experience but desperately wants to travel and won't be thwarted.

Episode 4: Lane Splitting & Filtering, Essential Repair Skills & Tools and Wildlife Encounters

 

ARR RAW Round Table Discussion with Travellers.

Grant Johnson, Brian Rix, Shirley Hardy-Rix, Sam Manicom and Jim Martin. Missing this week is regular Graham Field.

 

Episode 4 Topics:

Lane splitting & Filtering

 

It’s a dangerous situation for a motorcyclist to be caught in traffic, the stop and go, distracted drivers, etc.

The University of California at Berkeley published a report in May 2015 that says “motorcyclists who split lanes in heavy traffic are significantly less likely to be struck from behind by other motorists”.

The National Agenda for Motorcycle Safety studied safety implications of lane splitting. “A motorcycle’s narrow width can allow it to pass between lanes of stopped or slow moving cars on roadways where the lanes are wide enough to offer an adequate gap. This option can provide an escape route for motorcyclists who would otherwise be trapped or struck from behind. There is evidence that travelling between lanes of stopped or slow-moving cars (i.e. land splitting) on multiple-lane roads (such as interstate highways) slightly reduces crash frequency compared with staying within the lane and moving with other traffic.”

Lane splitting and filtering are a normal practice in many countries…Europe…Asia… riders are expected and sometimes required to pass between vehicles and advance to the front of the group. 

If you are not accustomed to lane splitting and filtering (prohibited in most of United States and Canada) and you go to a country where it is law or expected, how can you be prepared for that? 

What if you don’t want to lane split - it’s too scary or intimidating - how do you handle that?

Do you avoid it? Just not do it?

 

Essential Repair Skills & Tools? How to Deal With Breakdowns? 

How prepared do you really need to be? What are the do it yourself repairs you should learn before you go? Tire changing, chain adjustment, oil change? Can help usually be found easily?

 

Wildlife Encounters

Dangers and not-so dangers?

Should you be concerned? 

How do you handle wildlife? Different countries - different animals…

Preparing? Knowledge you need? 

Is it a good idea to carry sprays, other wildlife defences?

What sort of defence tools do you take with you?

What sort of things can you do to deter animal encounters?

Episode 3 Topics:

 

What constitutes an emergency?

SPOT and InReach devices allow you to call for help as well as send the message to a preprogrammed list of emails or texts. This could be a life saver or at least a huge hand if they know your route and make contact through forums or email with local people.

At what point do you really require rescue, as opposed to just some help. 

What are some other methods of handling emergencies?

Some countries bill for SAR? How does that affect your outlook?

Should preplanning your adventure in case of a "situation” include, getting to know others on forums so you have someone to reach out to in areas where SAR may cost or be unavailable? 

 

Riding the World in Two Weeks - Micro Adventures

For people with normal jobs and limited vacation time, what are some ideas and considerations for a grand adventure on a tight time-budget.

 

Bang For The Buck

Best destination for the money?

What would you look for or what do you think is the best dest for the money and for experience.
