Travelers to Motohank's

Joseph and Kim

After a five month trip up to Alaska and back,  Joseph and Kim from Texas are about to enter their next chapter in the life of motorbike travelers.   Joseph and I have traveled to Mexico a few times in the past.   I could see the fever that infects us travelers having its effect on Joseph.

Joseph and Kim have no time frame,  as the ride towards South America.   Joseph being an expert photographer,  make sure to follow their journey.   Follow them at the links below,

Michnus and Elsebie

     When I was wondering around Africa last year I was invited to say at the home of Michnus and Elseble.  Two world travelers themselves,  having traveled from South Africa to Europe and back on BMW F650's,  they are now in my part of the world. 

   They decided it was time  to experience the Americas.    They arrived in San Antonio to spend some time at Motohank's preparing their bike for the next chapter of the world travel.  

   They will ride the Western USA for a few months before heading due south until the road runs out.

Elisa

    Traveling the world Elisa rode into Motohank's on a Honda 125 cc that she purchased in Chile.  Traveling up from South America she concord the worst and the highest roads the Andes could throw at her.  Central America and Mexico were no match for Elisa and the 125.

The Pack Track

    Skyla, Stu, and Janell (L to R)  from  Australia arrived at Motohank's for a quick visit on their way south to Brazil for the World Cup.     Their stay here was a little longer than expected as I helped them prepare their motorbike for the long journey ahead of them.   As often the case, the most overlooked item is the suspension.   They also discover an error in some of the documents that needed attention. 
After attending the World Cup, the ride will continue on to Africa and beyond.

  It takes Jochen about two hours to get ready for a long trip like this.
