Phil Douglas - Knows all we need to know about motorcycle suspensions:

Jeff Kurtz - retired into a life of full-time M/C touring, only to find that the missing relationship was 53,000 miles ahead. A retired engineer (gadget-guy) turned photojournalist, he blogs and enjoys BMW dual-sporting where ever the gravel leads him. This is his third year speaking, new stories and his girlfriend in tow (figuratively speaking). www.WhereDoesThatRoadGo.com

  • 22 months of cross country adventure on a G650GS and a tent. He will fill you in with tips on FREE camping, camp hosting, close encounters, photos/videos of the adventure, and his legendary PVC tubes (not available in stores!).http://jeff-kurtz.pixels.com/
  • Two-up and a Toy Hauler - Maintaining a Relationship with a Non-Rider. Full-time MC traveler meets non-rider g/f to take on the challenges of sharing the road(s). The story of how we spent 15 weeks and 10,000 miles of 2015 sharing scenery, friends and much wine, while managing to evolve from six-wheels (one Toyota and one bike) to ten-wheels and combinations thereof. To be discussed: traveling vs vacationing and vehicle management.
