If you love travelling by motorcycle and have a thirst for adventure, then you must have heard of Adventure Rider Radio.
If you haven’t and you need to get up-to-speed fast, Adventure Rider Radio is a podcast about motorcycle adventures that has become a treasure trove of information. The show, that’s been recorded in Canada since 2014, was founded by couple, Jim Martin and his wife, Elizabeth. Evidently, the idea of a podcast about motorcycle travel that was entertaining and added value proved to be a hit, subsequently becoming the #1 motorcycle podcast in the world; among the top 5% of all podcasts downloaded.
7 years of consistently high-quality content is no easy feat. But somehow Jim and Elizabeth have managed to make the show better and better each year, adding to the wealth of enjoyable segments to listen to. Some episodes focus on the technical aspects of riding motorcycles – setup, rider skills etc. while other episodes feature compelling, first-hand accounts of some of the greatest motorcycle road trips ever completed. From riding through warzones and impassable jungles to dealing with corrupt officials, mechanical breakdowns and death-defying roads, there are hours upon hours of gripping stories to listen to.
After listening to every episode of the Adventure Rider Radio podcast, I thought it would be nice to rank the top 10 episodes of the podcast. Perhaps it will give you the motivation you’ve been looking for to go on a trip that really challenges you as a rider and as a person.
