All my life I have been fascinated by motorcycling. I began long-distance touring six years ago, and now I’ve made it my life. My first really big ride was in 2013, a 9,000-mile, 37-day trip from Bern, Switzerland, to Vladivostok, Russia, and back—in the winter. In 2014 I unofficially broke the motorcycle record for crossing all continents at their longest distance, which was 120 days, two hours [held by Kevin and Julia Sanders]. I broke that record by about three days, finishing in 116 days, 12 hours.
