Hi, I’m Dags and for the last few years I have been becoming less and less satisfied with the materialistic western lifestyle that I had entrenched myself in. I had a great stable job, a new harley-davidson in the garage and the best leather couch money could buy. So what happened? For some reason my spirit was waning. I needed an adventure. Not just any adventure, but a full-blown around the world trip that would take at least 2 years to complete. So fuck it, that’s what I’m doing. I have sold and given away every possession that I owned, just to show the world how serious I am about finding my true self.

Somewhere out there on the road my inner spirit is waiting for me.

So I am now travelling solo around the world on small cheap motorcycles. Why a small bike? Why not a testosterone-inducing, fully decked out, 1000 cubic square inches BMW touring bike?

Because I’m a tight-ass that’s why. And I’m also slightly mad.

You don’t need a 20 thousand dollar BMW to live your dream of seeing the world on two wheels! Generally a small local bike will get the job done, albeit a bit slower, but definitely cheaper. Parts are easy to come by and repairs can be made in any town, any place.

A brand new bike under 150cc in India will cost you about $800-$1500US. Even cheaper if you buy second-hand. They can then be on-sold for pretty much the same price you purchased them for. You can do this in Vietnam, Mexico, South America, Egypt the list goes on.

Heres a few tips for setting up your bike

So save up a couple of grand and go circumnavigate an entire country on a small motorcycle! Anyone can do it! If you have a backpack, strap that bastard on and you are good to go! Don’t believe me? Check these inspirational people out

Join me on my adventure and lets go see the world!
