Official ATLAS Riders

From behind ape hangers to moto whip'n dual sport travellers, ATLAS Riders are a diverse bunch. We wave with our right hands and spend more time on motorcycles than inside cars. Here are some of those likeminded folks we enjoy.

Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
The bikes I miss the most definitely revolve around racing. I would love to have a couple race bikes from the past. I love my past ISDE race bikes. My 2003 WR250f from Brazil, My GasGas 250 from Poland in 2004, and my 2005 KTM 525 I got my ISDE gold medal with from New Zealand.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I grew up in an off-road riding family, camping and riding in the mountains. I started riding my own bike at 4 years old on a Yamaha PW 50.
Where do you call home?
I live in Eatonville Washington.
What is your dream ride?
My dream ride is coming up January 2023. Im currently training and prepping for the Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia. Its been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember and being one of the first Americans to finish Dakar in the malle moto class will be amazing.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
The bottom kit in black.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
When I'm not digging holes working for the local water company, you can find me in the trails and dirt roads of the Pacific Northwest mountains. I dabbled racing a bit of everything off-road when I was younger but found myself traveling the world chasing International six days enduro medals. After earning silver medals in Brazil and Poland my hard work paid off and I took home a Gold medal in New Zealand as a World Trophy Team competitor for team USA. I raced every sort of off-road event in the United States after New Zealand bringing home respectable finishes in select GNCCs, National Enduros, National Hare Scrambles, and EnduroCross Championship rounds. I struggled with a string of injuries and needed a change. That change came to me in the form of a trials motorcycle. I didn’t touch an enduro bike for years and focused only on trials. This lead me to fort William Scotland where I finished with a second class award in the Scottish Six Days Trials in 2014. Riding the Scottish was very motivating for me and I began riding enduro bikes again. This time rally events came calling and I learned to navigate and won the Enduro class at the Sonora Rally in Mexico. Rally has been an amazing format for me and Im currently training for the Dakar Rally which Ill be attempting to be one of the first Americans to ever finish in the Malle Moto Class.

If I had to describe my riding style in one word it would be diverse. I pride myself in being able to ride any type of bike on any type of terrain with all levels of riders. I truly just love riding motorcycles in general. From my old vintage bikes to my modern ktm rally bikes and everything in between being on 2 wheels feels like home to me.

I do love to travel with absolute freedom between mountain roads and Off-Road, bringing my tent and camping stuff to enjoy nature and the environment. I love to ride alone but also in groups, it depends on the trip and the situation, the most important thing is to enjoy the journey and everything you learn from it.

Honda Translap Official ATLAS Rider
What's in your garage?
I have two bikes in my garage. A Honda XL 600 V Transalp, which is the go-to for winter rides. And the KTM 990 Adventure.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I think everyone has a motorcycle that they regret selling. For me it was a Kawasaki VN800, a low mileage barn find that I shined and did minor modifications to. It was a fantastic bike for quiet evening rides on winding country roads.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I have always been interested in motorcycles, but when I was 12-13 years old I got to sit on the back of my father's Yamaha R1. And from there I was on a mission to get a motorcycle license as quickly as possible.
Where do you call home?
My home is what I consider to be one of Norway's most beautiful counties, Telemark. Telemark can offer everything from forests and mountains to the sea and is a fantastic county to experience from a motorbike.
What is your dream ride?
My bucket list is getting long. But Iceland, Umling La and Dalton Higway are high on the list.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I'm using the throttle lock top kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
A few years back, I discovered the thrill of adventure riding, and it quickly became my passion. Since then, I've been captivated by the excitement it brings. All year around. Most of my journeys involve shorter rides after work or on weekends. I enjoy packing a field kitchen, sleeping bag, and tent, relishing the experience of staying outdoors.

Being an avid photographer, my camera is a companion on these rides, capturing the moments. Additionally, I serve as a coach at MCkurs.org, an organization dedicated to rider development for street motorcycles. Recognizing that one is never fully trained as a rider, I regularly participate in courses and continually trying to enhance my riding skills.

Honda Translap Official ATLAS Rider
What's in your garage?
A Triumph Tiger Sport 660 and a Triumph Bonneville Street Cup 900 (also a partially disassembled "project bike" 1981 Kawasaki KZ440).
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I started riding on the legendary Honda CB750, and worked my way through cruisers (Suzuki Marauder, Yamaha Bolt C-Spec), sports bikes (Suzuki SV650), and adventure bikes (BMW G 310 GS) - my current bikes are the ones I love the most. Triumph seems to hit all the right buttons for me.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I came to it relatively late, at the ripe old age of 35. Took an MSF course on a whim, and loved it ever since.
Where do you call home?
I live right outside of Chicago, in a western suburb.
What is your dream ride?
Personally, I love long distance trips that involve some off-road. Nothing too complicated, maybe gravel fire roads, etc. I take a lot of trips to Wisconsin, where there are hills, valleys, and fun empty farm roads. I'd recently taken a 4000 mile, 9 day loop from Chicago to Arizona and back, that took me and my step-brother through multiple states, extreme elevation and weather changes (heat, snow, rain, desert, mountains). The whole trip can be seen here. It would have been nice to have the Atlas then!
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I'm using the top kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
As someone who has gone through MSF classes, and actually became an MSF instructor for a time, I'm fairly safety conscious and believe in continual rider education. Though I'm not opposed to taking some risks from time to time, I generally take riding seriously, and don't fool around when I ride. I've done several track days, taken off-road and adventure riding courses, do solo and group trips and commute whenever the weather permits. I'm also heavily engaged in the riding community by contributing to the Tonit App in their Community Champion program that they'd had for a few years, writing motorcycle related articles for TopSpeed.com, developing my own content on YouTube, and being part of the MotoVenue Adventure Riding Courses that is being launched this year in the Midwest.

Triumph Scrambler Official ATLAS Rider
What's in your garage?
At the moment I only own one motorcycle which is my 2023 Triumph Scrambler 900 Chrome edition.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
My favorite bike from the past I would say my 2017 Triumph Bonneville street cup because within the 5yrs of ownership, I had many unforgettable adventures and invested a lot on the bike.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I grew up riding dirt bikes and around 19 is when I started learning how to ride a street bike.
Where do you call home?
I stay in sunny California in a city called Riverside to be exact.
What is your dream ride?
My dream bike I would say the Triumph Tiger 900. Just the fact its comfortable, you're sitting upright and its just set up for adventure touring.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
My name is Tony, I'm 38 years old and I am a motorcyclist content creator. I have been riding for 19 years. Riding is more than a hobby, its part of who I am. I have an unpredictable, spontaneous personality. I go with the flow and wing it all the time. Sometimes the best moments are the ones you didn't plan at all. I am very charismatic and friendly. I enjoy meeting new people and riding to new places.

@fourwheelednomad_ • LISA & JASON

What's in your garage?
Alas, we don’t own one! We’re location independent, so although we own property, we rent it out.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
Well, our current bikes are our all-time favourites, KTM 500 EXC-Fs, which take the prize above any motos we’ve been astride in the past. If you’ve ridden one, you’ll know why. Identical in model, we can share spares and parts, meaning we can problem-solve when one’s faulty.
  • They’re light at 247 pounds dry, ideal for where we wish to take them. After the F800 GS, Jason will never wish his bike was that heavy in the loose stuff behind Captain Slow. Ever. Again.
  • Their purpose is to do everything technical that lightweight 4-stroke enduros can do but do it easier than their 250 equivalent, for instance, as the power delivery is predictable and linear.
  • They have a decent engine and ample power for adventure riding without a propensity to stall.
  • The 500 delivers power like a trial bike, making it easier to ride. (Throttle control is a must-have.)
  • The enduro gearbox means the first gear is not snatchy, which will be a dream with challenging starts on tricky technical terrain. The sixth gear will also allow me to keep pace on the highways.
  • These bikes also have a quality suspension, which comes as standard.
  • Sure, they don't have long service intervals but guess what? We're not racing them, so we can extend those accordingly. They need few major mods (e.g., a bigger IMS fuel tank and a Seat Concept seat with a Wild Ass cushion) to work well off-road from the get-go.
  • Above all, they’re a blast to ride and it feels fantastic that we've heeded all the lessons learned from the previous RTW jaunt. No one's ever going to wish their bike was heavier...h-u-r-r-a-h, ours feel as light as dandelion seeds compared to being astride our old BMWs.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was somewhat late to the party at 31, and Jase was a teen. For me, it began when I fell into biking after winning a taster session astride a 50cc automatic from a competition at a UK bike event, passing my test and days later, stumbling upon Pearl, a factory-lowered 2001 BMW F650 GS, on eBay. She matched the colour of my helmet beautifully, much to Jason’s exasperation! An epiphanic moment later, he recognized the practicality of Pearl, assigning her pack mule status while reserving his 2008 BMW F800 GS for "tech" purposes: a drone, camera, and lenses. After voyaging in a container ship with the bikes, we clocked 80,000 miles from Argentina to Alaska, taking in Antarctica to the Arctic.
Where do you call home?
Wherever we kick the side stands down. Or pull up the handbrake and erect the rooftop tent. Or throw the sleeping bags down on the ground.
What is your dream ride?
I’m on it! We’re calling it the Mega Transect, which comprises a square: from North America to South America, traversing up the African continent, through Europe, and back to the UK. Our previous bike trip from the southernmost tip of Argentina to the top of Alaska, when we ran out of road going north in Prudhoe Bay, was pretty dreamy, too! We clocked 80,000 miles and explored 21 countries from the white continent, Antarctica, to the Arctic over a four-and-a-half-year period of sublime craziness.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Two extremely nifty black Bottom Throttle Locks. Pure genius.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I find immense joy in off-road riding for those awe-inspiring views away from the tarmac. My nickname from Jason is Captain Slow, indicative of my riding style. His words from the Motivational School of Jason, “Give it some beans, Princess: I can’t ride your bike for you!” stopped resonating a long time ago. I love riding slowly. Although I still wonder if that’s why you rarely hear the term ‘male intuition.’
As a champion for female riders in a rapidly growing market, I may not have been born with natural riding skills. Still, I am living proof that you can obtain your license, hop on two wheels, and venture anywhere near or far. It’s incredibly empowering.
The allure of the outdoors is just as strong as my passion for writing about it. Like Jason, I need a creative outlet that resonates deeply, and I am grateful that my words keep the fuel flowing. My side hustles on the trails are complemented by rewarding collaborations and partnerships in the world of gear. Together, they propel me on this exhilarating path.
Jason is a more aggressive rider, can handle technical terrain, and is an avid adventurer. He’s drawn to the exhilaration of off-road journeys that lead to hard-to-reach, hidden destinations. For him, the perfect ending to a day on the road is pitching a sleeping bag next to a crackling campfire, surrounded by untamed wilderness.
With an infatuation for vast open spaces and capturing the essence of light, photography has been his insatiable passion since the age of 14. Evolving his globally published portfolio in adventure travel, landscape, wildlife, and underwater photography, Jason is a talented photographer, drone pilot, and videographer.

Join Lisa and Jason on their "Four Wheeled Nomad" adventures:

KTM 1090 Official ATLAS Throttle Lock Rider
What's in your garage?
2018 KTM 1090 Adventure
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
My favourite bike from the past was probably my 2007 Kawasaki Versys 650. It was simple, tough, comfortable and reliable and allowed me to worry less about the bike and more about the adventure!
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
A late-ish starter, I got into 2 wheels with a Gilera Runner during my university time at the ripe old age of 21!
Where do you call home?
I currently live in Hamburg, Germany.
What is your dream ride?
If you mean the bike, then probably what I have now! The 1090 adventure promises all that the Versys gave me, but with more space, more power, more comfort and therefore more miles!
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I have the ATLAS Throttle Lock bottom kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I like to push on in the twisties and tend to enjoy the road first and scenery second. Although with advancing years I notice that this balance is slowly shifting in the other direction! I like to rely on reading the road and planning the corners rather than coming in hot and hammering the brakes and I enjoy nothing more than a perfectly executed string of rev-matched downshifts before a nice late apexed S-bend!

@eliasirani • ELIAS

Yamaha FZ6R Official ATLAS Rider
What's in your garage?
Yamaha FZ6R which I plasti-dipped, wrapped and painted in my favorite 3 colors: black, white and red.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
The FZ6R would be my first official bike. Previously, when I was younger, I owned a Honda Dio Moped and two small quad bike in Lebanon (one was automatic without reverse and the other was 3 gears forward and a reverse gear which was very convenient!)
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was about 13 years old when I started on the quad bike and the moped in Lebanon.
Where do you call home?
I was originally born in Lebanon and moved to the states in 2014. The definition of home has changed to me throughout the years as I have moved multiple times within the states. To me, home is not a fixed place and it is within me wherever I go and feel surrounded with good company.
What is your dream ride?
Every safe ride is a dream ride. Riding with a best friend/significant other or possibly my kids (God willing) in the future.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I purchased the Yamaha FZ6R since it is an intermediate 600cc sport touring bike. I like to ride safely while still having some thrill. I enjoy accelerating on straightaways when visibility is clear.

@thatmotogal • ANA

What's in your garage?
A 2014 Harley Davidson Sportster Iron 883
(With a 1200 engine upgrade / S&S Hooligan Kit)
A 2017 Honda Rebel 300
(It's my adopted bike, it belongs to my sister, but I ride it)
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I recently test-rode a custom Royal Enfield GT650 build from BAAK and I fell in love with the cafe racer and sport look of it. I also got to play with a Scrambler Ducati; that machine was FAST! I have to say… no matter how many motorcycles I get to ride, I will always be a proud Harley girl.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I started riding 3 years ago. I got my first and only motorcycle when I was 28. I was the first in my family to ride, so you can imagine my parent’s reaction when I told them I was buying a motorcycle, let alone a Harley Davidson.
Where do you call home?
Los Angeles, California has been my home for over 15 years.
What is your dream ride?
I don’t have a specific bike I would like to own, BUT if anything my dream ride would probably be one that I put together. Hopefully one day I’ll have my own garage and be able to build one from scratch. A Panhead would be nice :)
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I’m just a gal who loves motorcycles and won’t shut up about it. I know I have a lot to learn still, but I’m ready! One of my goals as a motorcycle rider is to inspire others (especially women) to start their motorcycle journey. I get overwhelmed with joy when people tell me I inspired them to start riding motorcycles. I want to celebrate people who ride and share with them genuine experiences. So… see you on the road.

@theouterknobbies • CALEN BACHMIER

What's in your garage?
Currently a 2021 Tenere 700 with a number of mods from a Dyno tune, Crash bars, bark busters, Acerbis skid plate, Denali auxiliary lighting, Mosko Reckless 40 bags, Camel anti-bobble and 1 finger clutch, Pro-taper Adventure handlebars and more I'm probably forgetting. 47,000kms and counting!
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I adored my 1995 KLR 650. I picked it up for a whopping $2200 CAD with 25k on the clock. This was my shift from street riding into ADV style adventures. It kicked open the doors to dirt roads and campsites. I remember my first night ride to a mountain lookout above the town of grand forks with a highschool friend on his XR650. Other notable rides would be visiting Glacier park in Montana and having just enough horsepower to avoid a Bear that charged out from the ditch looking for a thumpy lunch!
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was 18 when I got my first bike. It was a miled-out Suzuki Katana 750. I spent the winter prepping the body work for paint. It was sprayed black with red pearl. Riding over 20k kms my first summer the engine finally called it quits with 88,000kms and 60Psi engine compression. It's still in the shed at my Dad's awaiting its resurrection.
Where do you call home?
That's a tough one right now. Currently my work project brings me to Calgary, Alberta. When I'm away from work I gravitate to the lower mainland of BC, Chilliwack specifically.
What is your dream ride?
I'll have to pick more than one here! I've had recent infatuations with the current BMW S1000RR. The thought of 200hp+ in German trim is unparalleled. Though I feel without access to the Autobahn the true nature of this bike would never be known. On the other end of the spectrum I've joked that if Indian Motorcycles made a 400lb Adv bike in the 100-120hp range with a 21"/18", 8'+ of travel and 10" of ground clearance I'd have to buy it. My riding partner will never let me hear the end of it if that day comes. (Are you listening, Indian?)
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I'll be using a bottom kit. There's lots of tank clearance to my tank with the taller bars and actuation will be easier with thick gloves.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I try to do a bit of everything. The Tenere 700 is an awesome all rounder. This past summer we rode 27,000kms total. All of this included days of Single track offroad riding, logging roads of Vancouver island and BC, Red dirt roads in Moab Utah, Interstate highways to tiny two laners and mountain passes such as Beartooth Pass and even higher altitude passes like Mount Evans, Colorado. That's all travel riding I could say. Healthy mix of on and off road. At home a majority of my time is spent practicing individual skills, drag racing, group rides and goofing off with my core group of riding buddies.

@mojo.bike • MOJO

What's in your garage?
Triumph Bonneville T100 Black.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I loved my Kawasaki Ninja 300. The Ninja 300 was perfect for learning to ride a motorcycle, It was lightweight, nimble and held a good enough power for a 300cc engine. In terms of comfort, the Royal Enfield Classic was amazing, the seat had coils for comfort and the riding position was amazing. However it lacked power and there was significant vibration in the handlebars on some gears.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was always into motorcycles since I was a kid, I started riding mopeds when I was a teenager, then scooters and finally motorcycles at 24.
Where do you call home?
Land down under, Melbourne.
What is your dream ride?
My dream ride would be Kashmir and the Himalayas. The views and the untouched nature of civilization motivates me to travel to these places to explore, get lost and find my way.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
The Top Kit in Black.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
In a day and age where everything and anything is good by influencers, my goal is to try out products and accessories and share my likes and dislikes. I aim to promote products that I like and are practical for riders. I've been on the hunt for an affordable cruise control solution for some time now and I've tried other types of throttle locks; But the ATLAS throttle lock has a unique design that I believe, makes it reliable. The beauty of motorcycling is you can change your riding style whenever you please. My riding style is mostly pretty chilled, I love to enjoy the nature views by riding off-road and also turn heads in the city streets.

@pistonpinup • MARTA

What's in your garage?
Currently in my garage there is a Triumph Bonneville Street Twin, a recently acquired BMW F700GS, a Honda Super Cub and a Suzuki Tu250x.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
My favourite bike from the past has to be the Kawasaki ZZR400, this was my first motorcycle, it was a magnificent ride and allowed me to explore and broaden my horizons! A great nod to my choice may be that I later realised that is the same model bike Uma Thurman rides in Kill Bill, mine was blue and hers yellow. The other favourite is the Suzuki Van Van (RV125 from 1970s) , it is such an iconic bike and I grew up seeing my grandad and uncles riding these in my childhood so I have great memories and these still exist in the family.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I passed my licence when I was 18 but I had to wait until I was 22 to get my first bike. The funny side of this was that although legally I was allowed to ride, I had forgotten it all and so I had to practise in empty car parks before getting on the busy roads.
Where do you call home?
Home is where I live and ride, currently I live in the UK in Bristol but I grew up in Lisbon, Portugal. I still consider Portugal one of my homes as I go there often and it is where my family lives; I also have my Suzuki there to ride when I am visiting.
What is your dream ride?
Well there are plenty of dream rides I have on my bucket list but for sure one would be from Cape Town, along the Garden Route, then up to Kruger National Park. Africa has so much to offer in terms of riding challenges and amazing vistas with wonderful wildlife.Especially, I would enjoy the route along the coast with the rugged sea views.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I currently have the bottom kit on my BMW F700GS, I also have used it extensively on the Bonneville, specially on a 99 day trip in Europe. It was essential to take the strain off my wrist and give it a rest over the duration of the tour.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
My name is Marta and I am an IT project manager. My background is in Forensic Science and I guess motorcycles were present but not dominant in my younger years. In my family they were just seen as toys and also perceived as predominantly for males. Motorcycling came more into my life in my university years, I had a tight budget but wanted to explore more of the UK and motorcycling seemed to tick the boxes. It allowed me to expand my horizons and learn a bit about mechanics. I had such a tight budget I had to resort to doing the maintenance at home. In terms of riding style, I think it definitely evolved with my skills. I tried different types of bikes from sports bikes to quite aggressive naked bikes to modern classics for more softer paced rides. I enjoy a lot of touring and exploring on motorcycles so I guess I became more focused on that . By my quite eclectic garage you can see I have a soft spot for classic looking bikes but also can appreciate the advantages of a bigger modern well engineered adventure motorcycle. I have an interest in the history of motorcycling and why some models became iconic, that is why I have a cute Honda SuperCub as my commuter to work rather than just an uncharacteristic scooter.

@samuabj • SAMUELE SAPONARA

What's in your garage?
I currently have a KTM 1090 Adventure R and a Suzuki DRZ 400 Rally.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I haven't had many bikes, but the Kawasaki Z750 has remained in my heart. I wanted it from when I was 15 until I bought it at 23. I didn't keep it because it went against my desire to travel and explore!
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I can't call it a motorcycle, but at 5 I was riding my father's 50cc scooter. At 14 I became independent with my first scooter and at 16 I got my first real bike: the KTM 125 EXC of the year 2004. I remember it with great affection, in fact I returned years later always in KTM.
Where do you call home?
I call home that place where I feel good and where I have been well. At the moment I live near Milan but my heart is and will remain in Padua. I always feel at home in those areas!
What is your dream ride?
My dream trip is, at the moment, the Balkans on the TET with my DRZ 400. But I think the best trip is always the next! I like to think step by step, although I wish I could go to the North Cape or to America.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I'm a weirdo. I love speed as much as I love asphalt and off-road. The bikes I feel most comfortable with are adventure bikes. I like to travel as a couple but also alone, I go fast for the adrenaline but also slowly to savor the landscapes. Sometimes I like to be in silence looking at the horizon, dreaming of new adventures and fully enjoying what I am in front of!

@md_moto_adv • MARIO

What's in your garage?
There is my Benelli TRK502X.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
It's the one I own right now because it's my first one.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was interested in bikes since I was a kid but life has a strange path and now, here I am, stepping into this interesting adventure in my 30's.
Where do you call home?
Despite the fact that I live in Zagreb, Croatia's capital, my home is on island Krk where I grew up.
What is your dream ride?
Since I really like my Benelli it would be a TRK800.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I'm using a Top Kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
My obsession is motorcycle adventure and photography so I combined those two passions together. When I travel around I prefer unpaved roads, thats how you always get surprised by stunning locations and thats why I always have my essential photo gear with me.

@travellingmotochef • PAOLO SECOMANDI

What's in your garage?
In my garage there is actually a Yamaha T7.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I started riding at 16 with a Yamaha XT125X.
Where do you call home?
I am originally from a small village in the countryside, not that far from Bergamo, but thanks to my job (as a chef) I had the chance to travel a lot and felt at home everywhere I was.
What is your dream ride?
My dream would be to reach on two wheels all the most unexplored places in the world, where nature is still prevailing, such as Iceland or some parts of South America.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I am using the Top Kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I love motorbikes at 360°, from Harley-Davidson to sport bikes, but at this moment of my life the motorbikes that better fit my riding style and needs are adventure bikes. With this kind of bike I can easily travel, explore and even do some off-road riding.

@wind.road.therapy • WIND.ROAD.THERAPY

What's in your garage?
2018 Kawasaki Vulcan S 650.

What is your dream ride?
Pacific Coast Highway.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Bottom Mount Kit in Black.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I learned to ride later in life and I'm a total cruiser. The reason I learned to ride, is that I wanted to enjoy the beautiful scenery of this country up close, so with that, my riding style would be classified as "Stopping to Smell the Roses".

Yamaha MT-07 Official ATLAS Throttle Lock Rider
What's in your garage?
2016 KTM 1190 Adventure R
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
My first motorcycle was a 650cc Yamaha V-Star Classic that I quickly outgrew and upgraded directly to a 1900cc Yamaha Raider. The Yamaha Raider was a down and dirty cruiser that I loved the look of, but we quickly realized that it wouldn't be the motorcycle that we would travel around the world on. My wife Marisa and I then bought a 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure (S) and rode across 3 continents, 25 countries, and 86k miles on the back of over the course of 4 years. I just sold that KTM to upgrade to a 2016 KTM 1190 Adventure (R), but I will miss our original KTM as it took us to countless magical places.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was in my early 20s when I got the itch to buy a motorcycle. I didn't know how to ride one when I purchased a 650cc Yamaha V-Star Classic and stalled up and down my block for a week before attempting to take it down any other road.
Where do you call home?
After selling all our possessions, we technically don't have a home, but we have a couple of 'home bases' in the States. We like to go back to the States and spend time with friends and family every 2 years just outside of Chicago.
What is your dream ride?
My wife and I have ridden through Mexico, Central, and South America, and halfway up the African continent. The two of us have experienced so many wonderful memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives, and we have only covered a tiny portion of the world. But we are extremely excited to ride around Iceland!
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Bottom kit black. Fits great and is out of the way until needed!
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
We are 2Up (and Overloaded) so we tend to travel a little slower than most. But Marisa and I love to crawl our way over rocky mountains, through rivers, and down switchbacks as we meander around the world. Marisa creates YouTube content on our travels as I write books and magazine articles to help reflect how truly amazing traveling the world on two wheels can be.

Yamaha MT-07 Official ATLAS Throttle Lock Rider
What's in your garage?
I ride a 2021 Yamaha Tenere 700.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
Probably my favorite from the past was a Triumph Scrambler 900, it wasn't the best bike I've ever had but it had the most personality and character.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I got into riding late, I learned how to ride at 32 and jumped feet first into it.
Where do you call home?
Currently the road is home. I'm attempting to travel and document my travels on the road for as long as possible.
What is your dream ride?
I have a bucket list of rides I hope to work through, I think following the Dakar or crossing the Simpson Desert in Australia would be pretty cool though.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I have used Atlas throttle locks on five bikes at this point. Right now I have the top kit on my Tenere 700.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
My joke is my riding style is badly. Or that I basically do dumb stuff off road. I try to ride as much dirt as I can so I guess the best description would be adventure riding.

@scramblerstories • CAITLYN & CHRIS

What's in your garage?
2017 Triumph Street Scrambler, 2020 Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE, and a 2021 Honda Rebel 500.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
Caitlyn: I saw a 1966 Harley Sportster at the Barber Vintage Motorcycle Museum that I absolutely fell in love with. Something I'll have to keep an eye out for one day.
Chris: I love classic motorbikes from the 60s and 70s, Triumph, Norton, BSA, but in a fantasy world I'd love to have a 1930 Brough Superior SS100.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
Caitlyn: I didn't grow up with motorcycles, but I was always attracted to them. As many things in life, it was something I wanted to get into but was always on the back burner. That is until Chris got his first Triumph while we were dating. Before you know it, I was racking up tons of miles as a pillion and dreaming about being on my own bike.
Chris: I was always drawn towards motorcycles, but I didn't come from a family that rode. It wasn't until I was 19 that I was able to purchase my first bike, a Yamaha 600cc sport bike from the 80s for $500!
Where do you call home?
For the next few years we'll be traveling around on motorcycles, but the place we've lived that has felt the most like "home" is definitely New Orleans. Both of us instantly felt at home in the Big Easy, and our plans are to move back once we've traveled around the world.
What is your dream ride?
Caitlyn: My number one dream is to ride through Mongolia, but I also have a stone from the Arctic Ocean that I need to return. Chris grabbed it on his ride to Deadhorse to challenge me with returning it.
Chris: I feel like there's too many! Africa is probably number one on my list, especially North Africa. Morocco and Egypt are two I am very excited for.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Caitlyn is using the bottom kit, and Chris is using the top kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
We're Caitlyn and Chris and we are adventurous souls who love to travel to new places and meet new people. After watching the Long Way series for the first time, Caitlyn spit out the words "can we do that?" In just four words, a new dream and direction in life was born. We've been working towards that since, with Chris already knocking out a 16,000 mile trip to the top of Alaska and back, along with multiple trips across the US on a motorcycle.
Now we're about to embark on a trip of traveling full-time on motorcycles around North America for the next two years, while telling stories via YouTube on subjects that we find interesting. All this while Chris works his remote job from the road until we are ready to ship the bikes to Europe and begin tackling the rest of the world.

@rown_media • GABRIEL JONES

What's in your garage?
Currently I have ‘Victoria’, my 2009 Yamaha Vmax and a 2020 Honda Monkey. 
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I bought an old ‘81 Honda CX500 and my father and I spent a winter building a cafe racer out of it. By April it turned out really cool and even though it wasn’t fast, it still turned heads. And some of the most fun I’ve had was on my old 1997 Yamaha Vmax. I put 18,000 miles on it in the 4 years I owned it. 
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was roughly 8 years old when I first started on 2 wheeled motorcycles. I grew up on an old Honda Trail 70 and rode dirt bikes until I was old enough to ride a street bike.
Where do you call home?
I reside in Spokane, Washington. But I’m originally from a rural community that's just off the Columbia River called Gifford. Raised on a small farm surrounded by mountains of Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pine with twisty back roads.
What is your dream ride?
I own it. I know it sounds cliche, but it’s true. The Vmax is everything I want in a bike. It’s got  great handling, it’s comfortable, and the power is violent enough to make you poop your pants. The Vmax has such a unique design that the most frequent question I get is, “What kind of bike is that?” It's a motorcycle that’s been respected by all and holds quite the reputation. 
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Currently running a black top kit on my Yamaha Vmax and a polished bottom kit on the Honda Monkey.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
As much as I enjoy riding alone, I honestly have the most fun riding with my family and friends. I enjoy touring across the states and exploring new places just as much as ripping around town. I’ve been riding a long time and consider myself very composed while riding. If you happen to find me out riding in the wild, you may see me mixed in a group of stunt riders, out at the racetrack, or out riding with the wife. If you catch me out by myself, odds are, I have my camera with me to take pictures for Instagram. 

@one_wheel_ahead • MALTE FISCHBACH

What's in your garage?
Currently I have my 2019 Husqvarna 701 Enduro. 
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
The Husqvarna 701 is my first Motorcycle. But when I was 17, I had a 50cc moped, a Simson S51, it was never running well.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
Since I watched the Long Way Round series, at the age of 18, I knew that I want to do something like that in the future. But actually Motorcycles fascinated me already when I was much younger.
Where do you call home?
I was born and raised in a German city called Fulda in the State of Hesse. Thats my Home, I still live there.
What is your dream ride?
My Husqvarna is pretty much what I would call my dream bike, but I also always wanted a Kawasaki KLR 650, sadly you can’t buy them anymore in Germany.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I’m using the black top kit version on my Husqvarna.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
My name is Malte and I like to travel by Motorcycle, Bicycle or with my backpack. I like to ride off-road and on-road, ideally both at the same trip. As I’m a new rider, (license since 2 years) I have still to learn a lot, especially the off-road stuff. My Husqvarna and all the accessories have to withstand a lot of punishment, mostly because of me tumbling off the bike in the dirt. But practice makes perfect, right? Nevertheless I feel unstoppable on my Motorcycle and I want to ride as much as possible. Beside riding I’m a mechanic hobbyist, working on 4x4s and on my Husqvarna of course. Recently I started making YouTube Videos about my Motorcycle and about traveling.

I currently own a 2016 Honda Africa Twin, 2012 BMW F800GS, 2005 KTM 450EXC (570 Big Bore) and a 2012 Yamaha TW200.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
This is a really hard one. At one time I had 32 motorcycles in my garage so picking a favorite isn’t easy. The bike that got me into adventure riding was a 2005 VStrom 650. Although not really made for off-road ADV riding, this bike took me places I had no business riding it. I took this bike all over Oregon. Another older favorite of mine in the ADV category was my 2002 KTM 640 Adventure. I loved this bike off road. It was so fun and with the larger tank it could go forever it seemed like. However you couldn’t ride it for long periods of time because the vibration from the famous LC4 motor would have your hands and feet numb in no time haha.  
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I rode ATVs pretty much my whole life and didn’t buy my first motorcycle until I was 22. 
Where do you call home?
I currently live in Coeur d’Alene Idaho.
What is your dream ride?
I’m hoping to complete one of my dream rides December 2021 where I will ride from my home in north Idaho down to Baja and to Cabo and back. My BIG bucket list ride is to go from Dead Horse AK To Argentina.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I have used the original ATLAS kit on my Africa Twin since 2016, but just recently switched to the top kit
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
Kyle Cooper (A.K.A. Backcountry Adventure Motorsports) Backcountry Adv Motorsports is an adventure company I started back in 2016. Coming from a military and Law Enforcement background I’ve always enjoyed the outdoors as well as the serenity of being on a motorcycle and being disconnected from the stresses in our daily lives. Being on a motorcycle for me is truly a form of meditation and has helped me get through many hard times in my life as well as the mental wounds from both combat and law enforcement.

I started B.A.M. after being hurt while on the job that would later end up being a career ending injury in late 2015. This was the motivation to get out and do what I truly love on motorcycles. For 15 months after being medically retired, my family and I traveled in an RV to the all lower 48 states as well as Alaska and Canada. During this time I was fortunate enough to ride in all 50 states (I flew to HI) and explore what each state had to offer. We ended up settling down in Coeur d’Alene Idaho. Here we have so many areas to explore and it is an adventure playground. After settling here, I started my tour company and began doing more social media and found myself becoming an influencer. I had a large following early on as I was one of the first people in the US to own a new Honda Africa Twin (serial number is in the low 100s) and continued that traction as I began producing “how to” and ride videos when we were traveling. Since then I have started doing NW based guided trips on both ADV and snow bikes and as well as produce at least one video a week as either a gear or ride review. I’m currently revamping my website to add more space for ride and gear reviews and should have this available live soon. (Ridewithbam.com)

ADV Motorcycling is truly my life and other than my family, pretty much makes up who I am and what I enjoy doing. If I’m not at home spending time with my family, you can bet I’m on my bike exploring.

What's in your garage?
2017 Yamaha FZ09
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
As a former 14 year employee of a motorcycle dealership, I’ve had the opportunity to ride a multitude of bikes. My riding interests began with motocross bikes and eventually branched out to the street. One of the bikes that always stood out for me as being the most fun was my 2004 KTM 625SMC, it was like riding a motocross bike on the street!
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was probably around 13 when I got my first bike, a 1977 YZ80. It definitely wasn’t anything fancy but it ran and was something to ride.
Where do you call home?
Houma, Louisiana.
What is your dream ride?
For me, my dream ride is usually the one in my garage. I will say that I currently have my eye on a few of the new adventure bikes that have recently hit the market.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I’ve been an enthusiast for as long as I can remember and I enjoy pretty much all categories of riding. Most of my riding takes place on the backroads along the many Louisiana bayous and waterways. With the purchase of my current bike, I decided to begin a YouTube channel, MotoSouth, to share the customization process of my bike and to help others who might want to do the same. It has grown steadily over the last couple of years, and my videos have received over 1 million views so far.

My favorite bike I've owned is my street triple, the one I have now is my second one! My favourite bike of all time, is probably the Norton Domiracer.

What is your dream ride?
Norton V4SS or Possibly a Arch KRGT-1.

Depending on who I’m riding with and on which bike I’m using, I enjoy spirited riding, both on and off road. Not too fast so as I don’t take time to absorb my surroundings of the beautiful country I inhabit however.  

@ballamoto • MATT BALLAM

What's in your garage?
Just the XSR700 at the moment, but I'm hoping to pick up a CRF250L for some real off road stuff soon.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
One of my favourite bikes was actually a 110cc pit bike that we used to rip around the local chalk quarrays! So much fun, and physically small enough that you basically couldn't hurt yourself if you fell off!
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I owned my first motorcycle at about 11 years old. It was a little twist-and-go thing we had for a bit of fun. I then went through the phase of having a pit bike when I was around 16. But it wasn't until I was around my mid 20s that I really got into bikes properly. That's when I got my full road licence and a trusty 22 year old Suzuki Bandit 600!
Where do you call home?
South England, just north of Portsmouth.
What is your dream ride?
I don't really have one dream bike so much as a dream garage! With a few different bikes which are perfect for different things. I'd love a great little off road bike for the lanes, something like a Triumph Bobber for cruising, and then my XSR700 for some faster fun. And maybe a Jaguar F type too...
What ATLAS kit are you using?
The bottom kit, in black. 
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
My name's Matt, and I'm a 3D designer by trade, and a motorcycle and photography enthusiast by passion. I'm lucky enough to live in amongst some great countryside in the South of England, with some lovely roads and beautiful scenery. And although I do love a good blast on some great roads, I've recently started getting into more off road riding too, with hopes of getting a proper dirt bike in the near future. Most of the time I'm on the road, I'm just cruising around the countryside, taking it all in, and stopping for coffee way too many times!

@livingstone_moto • BILL LIVINGSTONE

What's in your garage?
I've currently got my 1996 BMW r1100GS and I love the crossover of on and off road use. 
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
My favourite bike from the past has to be my very first bike I learned on, a 1978 Honda CB400, that was abandoned, hadn't been ridden for over a decade and took a whole winter to rebuild! 
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
In hindsight, way too old! I've always been interested and as a kid wanted to try dirt bikes, but I never rode a motorcycle until I was in my mid 20's. Once I bought my first bike, there was no going back!
Where do you call home?
I live just outside of Toronto, Canada.
What is your dream ride?
That would have to be a BMW rnineT scrambler. I'm excited about the new 2022 models with the updated suspension for my style of off-road riding.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I'm using the black version of the top ATLAS kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I'm a full time graphic designer/photographer. My way of relaxing is to grab my camera, hop on my motorcycle and go on adventures! I love riding on anything from smooth pavement to dirt trails and anything in between. Most of the time through the week I travel on my own, but I have some close friends that join me on the weekends and they share an interest in Adventure bikes. For me, the best kind of trip is anything that involves my bike going from point A to point B and having fun along the way!

I am a full-time bus driver. To relax after a hard day's work, I get on my motorbike and go on an adventure on the road and in the paths! , I travel a lot on my own, it allows me to travel serenely, and I stop very often in search of a spot to photograph the landscapes and immortalize these moments.
I am also a creator of content, photos and videos and I share my emotions and pictures on YouTube and Instagram. I like to share my passion.

@goruffly • JESS STONE

What's in your garage?
I ride a 2013 BMW G650GS with a K9 Moto Cockpit motorcycle dog carrier mounted behind me to carry my 75lb German shepherd Moxie.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
Before the G650GS, I bought a TVS 160cc while living in Liberia, West Africa. The TVS was my ‘learner bike’ and I put about 1000km on it before upgrading to the BMW and setting off on a North and South America trip.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I was in my late 20s when I first learned to ride. My then-boyfriend, now husband, Greg, wanted to do a North and South America motorcycle trip. He invited me to come along but only on the condition that I would ride on my own motorcycle. I was intimidated but up for the challenge. We were then living in Liberia, West Africa and I bought a TVS 160cc for learning to ride. About 9 months and 1000km later, we started the trip!
Where do you call home?
I’m originally from Toronto, Canada but I spent most of my 20s living in Africa and working as an international aid worker. For the past 5 years, I live in Panajachel, Guatemala. My husband and I came here to support a women’s Microfinance and empowerment nonprofit and we fell in love with the region. Soon, we began working with indigenous women artisans and launched our ethical outdoor dog gear brand RUFFLY.
What is your dream ride?
It starts in March 2022. I’m riding around the world with my 75lb dog on the back and I’m doing it to raise $100k for the nonprofit Girl Up, which was founded by the United Nations Foundation, to empower girls towards achieving gender equality.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I’m an ex-international aid worker and founder of the ethical outdoor dog gear brand RUFFLY where we work with indigenous women artisans and tailors to create dog gear that does good, goes everywhere, and looks amazing! We also make the K9 Moto Cockpit motorcycle dog carrier for medium and large dogs. I suppose you would describe my riding style as “adventure motorcycle travel with a big dog”!

What's in your garage?
I currently only own a 2018 Honda CB650F as I just sold my 2014 Triumph Bonneville. But I am looking for a second bike for this riding season.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
Practically I would have to say that the Honda CB650F is my favourite bike. But emotionally I would choose the Bonneville for sure.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I’ve been around motorcycles my entire life but only purchased my first motorcycle in 2012. A Triumph Speedmaster.
Where do you call home?
Home is Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
What is your dream ride?
Too much to choose from. One day I would love to be cruising Route 66 on a Harley Davidson and another day I dream about riding a Husqvarna Norden 901 into Alaska.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I am using the Black Top Kit on my Honda CB650F. It has been a real game changer for long distance riding.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
Greetings and salutations, UrAvgRider here. I love all motorcycles. Period. I started riding a cruiser and then got into a cafe racer. I started to get hooked on long distance riding which is why I ended up with the CB650F. Long distance riding turned into adventure seeking. I’m always looking for the next adventure. Along the way, I started my little YouTube channel to share my adventure.

@themotoscout • CHRIS

What's in your garage?
I just sold my 1983 Kawasaki 440 so I just have the 2019 Indian Scout Bobber.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
I love motorcycles. Maybe I wouldn’t buy them all but I would certainly ride them all lol. I love the classic Triumph Bonneville going back to the 50’s, and of course Harley is just iconic although not my first choice. I’m partial to Indian just because I’ve grown to love them so the original 48 Chief is an awesome bike. I do love my first bike and I’m glad I learned on it- 1983 Kawasaki 440 LTD.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I grew up riding some dirt bikes and four wheelers. I didn’t get into street bikes until 5 years ago.
Where do you call home?
I live on the Central Jersey Shore near Belmar Beach & Asbury Park.
What is your dream ride?
If I could buy any bike with no limitations to price I would probably go with an Arch motorcycle. Right now I’d love to have my current bike, and add an Indian Challenger, and some kind of Dual Sport to the fleet. 
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I have the bottom kit in black and I love it. 
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I love tech and cameras so connecting on Youtube and Social media to other people in the Moto Community comes naturally to me. I do freelance video work with a couple non-profits and get to travel quite a bit. Riding is my outlet, and I pretty much ride everyday even when its pretty cold out. I love to travel on the bike and I’ve got a few longer trips under my belt and planning for more. The Scout Bobber has a lot of low end torque and power especially in the 5800 RPM range and above so I like to push it when I get the chance and hit some good twisty back roads.

What's in your garage?
Hey so names Jeff the Bearded Bobber. In my garage I currently have a 2018 Indian Scout Bobber , 2020 Indian Challenger and my wife’s 2020 Indian Chief Darkhorse.
Tell me about your favorite bikes from the past.
Growing up I’ve always been a fan of old school Indian motorcycles and my dads old purple Harley Soft.
How old were you when you first got into motorcycles?
I’ve loved motorcycles since I was a kid but didn’t get into riding until I hit 30. Took a riders course and got my Bobber the rest as they say is history lol. I didn’t realize that was only the beginning.
Where do you call home?
I consider myself from Kingman Arizona but I’ve lived in Southern California for 17 years now and I currently live in Redlands, CA.
What is your dream ride?
so I’ve been knocking my bucket list down. Did Sturgis and most of PCH. Route 66 is still a dream for me to ride all the way.
What ATLAS kit are you using?
I have the black bottom kit.
Tell us about yourself and your riding style.
I started riding 4 years ago roughly and not long after I turned it into YouTube. It has to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The new friends and family I’ve made along the way is incredible. My riding style would have to be aggressively laid back lol I love my cruisers but I do love taking them fast as well. Long distance beautiful rides have to be my favorite.
