Then you're in for a treat like no other!
You know who you are. And I know you’re out there. You love motorcycles and the freedom to explore and discover that it provides. There is a connection with your environment that you only experience on a motorcycle. You feel your world, not just move through it, and you find that you have more random conversations with enjoyable strangers than you ever have when not riding. Riding is a connector: it not only provides the most fun way from point A to point B, but the vulnerability of being exposed also makes you more accessible to conversation and connection with people along the way. Riding a motorcycle is one of the best ways to experience a place, and the inhabitants that make it special. It’s also just incredibly fun!
You also love photography, you love taking time to stop and appreciate the beauty that is all around you. You love to capture, preserve, and share that beauty and experience with others. You may not be a professional photographer, but you love to capture, and that is enough. Photography allows you to slow down, smell the flowers (or gasoline), and find beauty in all the little details that make up our incredible world.
Men and women, young and old, have joined me on our MotoPhoto tours of Italy in the past. One of my favorite stories is of a single mid-30s woman who was a talented photographer, loved adventure, and had no idea how to ride a motorcycle. She found out about our fall Italy MotoPhoto tour and signed up – then spent the next few months of the summer buying a motorcycle and learning how to ride! When the time came to start our tour in Roma, she was ready to go and amazed us all with her poise on the big new BMW she rented. She navigated the bustling city with confidence, and once on the curving mountain roads she flowed with the best of us.
ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE
We’ve created a unique experience just for people on their journey with My World Registry. You can now experience a MotoPhoto by booking a personal tour for yourself, a small group of your friends, or by joining a group of soon-to-be friendly strangers. We offer tours in Central Oregon (where I am a local for over 20 years), and in Italy and Northern Thailand – where we also connect with native speaking partner guides. This is our much awaited Central Oregon Edition. Join us!
WHAT TO EXPECT
I’ll take care of everything for you, allowing you to relax and enjoy the ride. I’ll plan a ride that will take us on the most fun, curvaceous, and least-crowded roads in the area. (See the photo slide for a map of our tentative route.)
We’ll make time to stop and enjoy great photo spots, cool cafés, unique restaurants, and places that make the area one-of-a-kind. I’ll also help you with your photography, and give you expert tips from my 25+ years of professional photography experience specifically focused on what you will see and experience in this journey.
My plan is that you’ll have a much deeper appreciation for the natural beauty, culture, quirks, and people of the areas we explore together. We’ll ride safe, take our time, and experience the essence of the area, not just drive through it.
