Motorcycle Diaries

Go all Che Guevara on this round-the-world bike trip


Picture this: You’re out on the open road, cruising on a motorcycle, possibly wearing a black beret.

Your destination: the whole world.
Even Che Guevara’s South American excursion has nothing on Outback Adventure Treks’ Around the World Rally, a four-month epic motorcycle ride taking signups now.
It starts like any ride: you, your bike, the road. But this two-wheeled journey begins on the wrong side of the road, in London, where you'll go full throttle across Europe and along the Trans-Siberian Highway, making a pit stop in Magadan, a port town in Russia’s Far East.

Then it’s a taste of true biker culture back stateside where you’ll travel the Trans-America Trail over the Rocky Mountains and end up along the Atlantic before heading back to London. (You know, just in case you developed a long-distance fling with some biker babes out there.)

While planned, this trip is about exploration. You choose which roads to ride during the trip. And with 24-hour GPS support keeping you headed in the right direction and Outback sorting out your visas, border crossings, and any bike transportation, all you have to do is smile for the keepsake DVD documenting the trip.
Back in London, you’ll bid farewell with a round of biker bacchanalia at a party to celebrate your fantastic voyage.
There’s ample time to alert the authorities about your two-wheeling jaunt. The ride begins in May 2016, but the deadline for signups is a much sooner May (this one).
World conquering takes some lead time.
