I am 40 years old and have been an Adventure Bike Enthusiast for more than 15 years. I am an active journalist for the largest Austrian motorbike magazine and focus on adventure, travel and navigation. In addition, I’m active as a trainer in GPS-based travel planning, navigation and a guide for motorbike tours and I love to modify my bikes to fit my travel needs better.
I try to spend as much time as possible on bikes (cuurently 4) travelling the roads less travelled in various countries and whenever possible offroad. My favourite countries are those less populated allowing me to travel through the wilderness.
About twice a year I also participate in offroad events such as Krka Discovery or the Hellas Rally Raid to develop my driving skills and ride offroad. My bike travel dreams are to ride the whole Pan Americana and to take a motorbike journey starting in central Europe and heading across the Balkans, Turkey, Iran, Russia, India, Indonesia all the way down to Australia and finally New Zealand.
In my daily job, I run large-scale projects in the field of information technology and organisational development as a senior project manager as well as lecturing oninformation management at university.

We do not represent or warrant that materials in the site or the services are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. We cannot represent or warrant that the site or its servers are free of viruses or other harmful components. If you stray onto private land, apologise and get back onto the byway or trail. These trails can be shut or permanently closed at short notice under local law. Do not ride trails beyond your capability. If unsure, get off your bike and walk the trail first. Trail riding alone, especially on trails you do not know is really unwise. Wear the proper safety kit. Many country trails are rarely maintained. You will find ruts, holes, floods, treacherous surfaces and the occasional booby trap hazard deliberately placed by people who do not like motorcycles using trails. When you use the trails, you are on your own. You exercise your judgement in your own skills and your own navigation. All we can do is show you where some of the trails are, but this can change at a moment’s notice.
