Sometimes when we meet a person who’s engaged in something extraordinary, we might look at them and think to ourselves, “I want to be more like this person. I want the drive and courage and skill to do what this person is doing.” Last July, my producer Louise Powers and I met Kris Hall at BMW Motorrad Days in Berlin, and I thought to myself, “Kris is one of those people.” Unlike those who seem born to tackle insurmountable obstacles in life, Kris was just an ordinary guy with a house, a family and a dream; a dream to travel the world on a motorcycle.

Recently, during a break in his travels, we got to sit down with Kris and learn about his amazing journey, what inspired him, and where he plans to go next…

Recently we found ourselves in Germany, and had a chance to spend several days in the city of Berlin. Now like any big city, there are a LOT of motorcycles. And where there are so many motorcycles, there is a need. A need to store bikes, a need to work on bikes, and of course the desire to meet like minded people.

Enter Craftwerk Berlin, a community garage and co-working space that allows people to store, service and learn about their bikes, all with other riders and enthusiasts that share a passion for all things motorcycle. We sat down with Craftwerk founders Michael, Catee and Max, and talked about the unique space that they have created, as well as their involvement in electric motorcycles and that the future holds for urban mobility, the combustion engine, and the bright and interesting future of 2 wheeled vehicles.
