Considered by many as the world’s leading Motorcycle Explorers, Lisa & Simon have been inspiring adventure since 2003, when they set out from their UK home on their incredible journey to ride to 122 countries and on all seven continents.

To date, the pair have traveled over 400,000 miles (643,737 km), through 78 countries, traversed 27 deserts, smashed four world riding endurance records, and are still on the road.
