Rolf and Alex's first motorbike trip together was "Down the Balkans" in April 2012. After the trip we were so excited about the brilliant experience, we knew it  would not be our last.


As soon we came back in Mai, we were seaking for a new adventure. Finding Richard seamed to us like a honorful cause to start planing and investing money.


It all started with a HUB. In November 2012 we moved in to our brilliant garage at Weststrasse 77 in Zurich. We were renting a 40 qm  room in an atelier and took over the entire HUB 155 qm in September 2013.


To cary all the spare parts for us, we organized a third rider. Dorian will happily overload his bike for us... thank you bro! haha... just kidding. We are happy that since January 2014 we can call our duo now trio! With our good friend Dorian the trip will be even more awesome! Welcome!


We have struggled, but finaly we defined more or less our route to Africa. For sure there will be some spontaneous changes here and there... but that's what travelling is all about right? Check it out:
