Thanks for your support Paddy ....

One of the many terrific people we were able to catch up with at Motorcycle Live 2013 last weekend at the NEC was Paddy Tyson, Author and Editor of Overland magazine. If you are into motorcycle travel and don't have a subscription to this quality mag' yet - get cracking and organise one!

It is great to have Paddy's support for the Dambusters2014 Charity Motorcycle Ride in aid of the Royal Air Force benevolent Fund and Motorcycle Outreach/Precious Cargo.

Here is Paddy at the Overland Magazine stand with comedian Ross Noble! (website will be live from January 2nd 2014)

More from Motorcycle Live 2013....

What a brilliant day out at Motorcycle Live! Not only did I sit on countless bikes, check out exhausts, wheels, intercoms, kit ....

but I also got the chance to meet up with loads of fellow bikers and 'overlanders' - some I already knew and some I met for the first time. What a grand bunch of people bikers are!

It was great to catch up with people such as Sam Manicom (you really have to read some of Sam's books!  ), Nick Sanders ( ) (, Paddy Tyson (Overland Magazine ) but also to meet some new friends such as Lisa Morris!

Lisa is about to set off on a massive overland trip with her better half. In her words "In January 2014, we plan to ride our bikes onto a container ship (we will be accompanying them)  and sailing to Montevideo in Uruguay.  From there we will be travelling south down to Patagonia.  We then head north all the way to New York not before visiting Prudhoe Bay in Alaska." Lisa only passed her test in July 2012!!!

You can find out more and follow her travels at :
