We are often asked how we use the little motorcycles that we carry on the front of MogTug.  They have proven awesome little adventure machines, helping us with everything from getting groceries, to scouting a dirt road before busting through with MogTug. One random...

We woke to a sunny day. The idea today is to ride into Ushguli and then tomorrow continue on the dirt road past there in a loop  and we plan to get to the capital Tbilisi the day after. We were a bit concerned about the amount of rain and the condition of the “road”...

Georgia on My Mind.

Georgia on My Mind.

We have a short day planned today with just 2o6 km to Batumi Georgia. This gives us lots of time since there is the border to deal with and a 1 hour time change. The ride was pretty uneventful. We did stop for a quick power wash after the rain and mountain...

Barely got my breath back from the return from Nepal and we were off to Ireland for the “Norton” meet at the Beara peninsula in the deep South West. I opted for the T3 in the hope of hassle free riding, that proved half right! Alex and I left on Wednesday,...

Team Canada meets up!

It is sad to leave the whole gang from Slovakia, but we must move on with the show. We started out from Takaj about 2 pm headed south to Budapest under the threatening skies. We planned to take the smaller roads and abandon them for the freeway if the weather turned...
