Riding on two wheels has been a passion of mine since I can remember. Growing up in Sweden I had to wait until I turned 15 years before I could ride on the streets without fear.
After graduating university I started to work for the Swedish furniture company IKEA. Together with my family we spent 10 years in East Europe and 10 years in Asia at various locations. Where ever we lived, we always explored the areas on motorcycle.
I like any kinds of bikes, as long as it suits the purpose of the trip, even uses a push-bike sometimes to ride to work. Exercising out in the open air is one of my favorite pastimes, but I also like to travel and to experience foreign cultures. My favorite destination is always the next one.

Traveling by motorcycle is for me the perfect way to explore a country. I am delighted to feel the elements - no matter if sunshine or rain and you get so much easier in contact with locals.

I like traveling and I love the nature. Until now my motorcycle experience is being a pillion. So far I have been traveling all over Thailand and wide parts of Europe on a the back of a motorcycle.

Growing up in Thailand with a passion for 2 stroke motorcycles. Soon enough I played "jigsaw" with motorcycle engines before I even got a license.
After graduation from high school, I moved to the US and finally bought my first own bike: 1500 cc. cruiser. I moved around the US quite often and got a good chance to join few motorcycle events such as Toy Run in Sturgis, Michigan and the Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Born and raised in Phetchabun, Thailand, now I've been living in Chiang Mai for 12 years. Traveling in your home country is something special. You can see the transition of your surrounding while you drive - from crowded cities to the remote mountains and countryside. Every time you pass by the same place it keeps changing. Those keep me feeling joyful while I’m driving.
