This episode, we chat with former Royal Marine Commando, climber, diver, extreme environment expert and BMW Motorrad ambassador Aldo Kane, who loves a challenge. He’s rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, abseiled into active volcanoes, been held at gunpoint by narcos, and even been charged by a black Rhino while training anti-poaching teams.

But what does @aldokane like to do when he’s not leading extreme expeditions into the jungle, desert or mountains? He loves to ride BMW bikes – and talk about them of course. Listen and be inspired to another one of our lockdown chats.

Welcome to our first ever live video podcast episode of Ride and Talk. We recorded this in the midst of lockdown, when everyone wanted to ride but no one was really able to.

In this episode, we chat with Timo Resch, Vice President Sales and Marketing BMW Motorrad, and Trudy Hardy, VP of BMW Motorrad of the Americas, about the imminent arrival in the cruiser segment of the exciting new R 18. Then we introduce some familiar faces from the Bavarian Soul Story YouTube series, including Tommy Kerns, Alan Stulberg, Kate Nettesheim and Nathalie Gessler. From Munich to Los Angeles, via New York and Texas, we do hope you enjoy the listen!

Welcome to Ride and Talk – the BMW Motorrad podcast! It’s a podcast about the world’s best bikes, the people who ride them, and the incredible places these bikes allow us to reach. Join Andy Dukes as he delves deep into the world of BMW Motorrad for amazing behind-the-scenes stories and unique insights from brand experts, ambassadors and the passionate global riding community.

Within three months of throwing his leg over a bike for the first time, Sam Manicom set off on an R 80 GS to travel the length of Africa. But when he got to the Cape, he didn’t want the trip to end, so he just kept going. His planned one-year trip turned into an eight-year, 200,000-miles overlanding odyssey across 55 countries.

The four motorcycle travel books that came out of that trip are inspirational; his talks and presentations are truly memorable and his main ambition in life now is to encourage others to explore and learn about the world and themselves. Listen to @sammanicom.author in this podcast and be inspired!

Welcome to Ride and Talk – the BMW Motorrad podcast! It’s a podcast about the world’s best bikes, the people who ride them, and the incredible places these bikes allow us to reach. Join Andy Dukes as he delves deep into the world of BMW Motorrad for amazing behind-the-scenes stories and unique insights from brand experts, ambassadors and the passionate global riding community.

The world was a very different place in 1983 when 23-year-old Elspeth Beard fired up her R 60/6 BMW and left London for a two-year journey into the unknown. In doing so, she became the first British woman to ride a motorcycle around the world.

Although she kept diaries of her amazing adventure, she put them away upon her return and forgot about them for nearly 30 years until a journalist commissioned a story about her original journey. A book deal was subsequently struck and Lone Rider was published. It’s gone on to be a huge success – and Elspeth tells Ride and Talk how the bike and the book has changed her life.

Ride and Talk - #20 Lost in the Pacific with Dylan Wickrama

Download it: MP3 | AAC | OGG | OPUS

Dylan Wickrama’s story has it all: lost on the Pacific Ocean in a home-made raft powered by his BMW R 1150 GS Adventure – and all because after three years of round-the-world travel, he was stuck at the Darién Gap between Panama and Colombia, where all roads ended at that time.

What happened out there is a spellbinding story that was first published in Dylan’s book ‘When the road ends’, but has now been made into a feature-length documentary movie, available for streaming and download worldwide from 12 May via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and similar platforms.

“The GS changed my life…” How many of us can truly say that? Stephanie Rowe certainly can for sure. Ever since she won the ‘ride of her life’ as part of the One World One R 1200 GS campaign back in 2012, she’s been spreading the GS joy across the continents.

That original GS – and many other GSs since – have changed her life considerably and she tells Ride and Talk about the two-wheeled adventures that have taken her across the globe as a brand ambassador, certified off-road instructor, journalist, Int. GST marshal and the face of several BMW Motorrad campaigns. Her enthusiasm is infectious!
