Ever since college, I’ve wanted to go to Nepal. It’s definitely a bucket list item and at this point it may be my wife and I going after the kids leave the house (which is fine by me). When we lived in San Francisco, I rode my Ducati Monster everywhere. I put 1,200 miles on it the first week I bought it. I love riding motorcycles.
I recently found out that an amazing group of people started running India motorcycle tours (as well as Nepal) through an outfit they call Two Wheeled Expeditions. I think it’s an incredible idea and looked into it a little more.
Along with having great experience with motorcycles and travel, a massive plus is how they approach capturing the experience. Personally, I suck at remembering to take photos, so the idea that TWE handles those details, professionally, is a huge plus. I know two of the staff through creative (ad)ventures, so I know that aspect of it will be super professional, that my memories of the expedition will be collected and presented in the best way possible.
Adventures are nothing without the stories that follow and the TWE site had enough to make me stoked about considering this as an add-on potential to an already existing trip. As you’ve noticed from videos long ago, trip stacking is a favorite strategy for getting more out of your travel. In fact, trip stacking has us back in the U.S. about 1-2 months out of the year, we end up seeing a lot of friends and family members while we’re there. I don’t know what our specific plans for Nepal will be, but the idea that we can make a trip there, then add a motorcycle tour in India (and/or Nepal) as part of the overall trip sounds absolutely perfect.
The best thing about being a digital nomad is choosing where you go, when you go, and how you get there. I haven’t met any on motorcycles (a few on bicycles), but riding a motorcycle is the ultimate freedom for traveling through a place at a decent speed, while feeling you are part of the surroundings. With Nepal and India on the list, experiencing them on two wheels sounds like a dream.
