From early on, Harry found that riding motorcycles took him to remote places and enabled him to easily connect people with his surroundings. In 1991, he bought his first Yamaha XT500, said goodbye to his family and crossed the Sahara Desert into Central Africa. About a half year later, he was safely back home and in one piece, albeit with an undiminished thirst for adventure!
He recalls getting badly lost in the Sahara, and the experience of finding his way back prompted Harry to become an engineer in the field of satellite navigation. As a result, the word ‘Lost’ was eliminated from his vocabulary! As a passionate outdoor enthusiast, and engineer with the entire GPS files of BC at his fingertips, he spent a lot of time exploring the outdoors on foot, in vehicles, helicopters and on motorcycles! His passion for riding the back country has taken him from North America to Europe, South America and into the Australian desert.
Harry believes adventure riding 30 years ago and adventure riding today has changed a for the better. Motorcycles have excelled in performance and reliability, camping and navigation gear is readily available, while adventure riding courses allow novices to gain offroad skills in a safe environment. His desire to offer adventure trips is simply born out of a passion to share with clients the happiness he has experienced on two wheels and to ride with like minded people in one of the most beautiful places on earth!
