ARR RAW - Our NEW SHOW
ARR RAW is a spin-off show from Adventure Rider Radio that has a different format and audio style. Although connected with Adventure Rider Radio the show is round table discussions about motorcycles, travel and anything else that crosses our minds completely unscripted, raw and personal.
Our regulars - Sam Manicom, Graham Field, Shirley Hardy-Rix, Brian Rix, Grant Johnson and Adventure Rider Radio host Jim Martin.
Anna Grechishkina left Kiev, Ukraine in July, 2013 to follow her dreams of a trip around the world. Having fallen in love with motorcycling in 2005 when she got her license through the arduous Ukrainian licensing system, she started to take trips that were weeks to a few months long to different countries with friends. It seemed logical to morph in to a longer trip, perhaps a year or two riding around the world.

When we are packing for a motorcycle adventure, water and fuel are often left to the end to be fitted into whatever space remains, but considering the weight and bulk of liquids, not to mention the challenge of leakproof containers, perhaps it should be our first consideration.
Lyndon Poskitt is a passionate motorcyclist who has spent many years racing motorcycles, with the apogee being the Dakar Rally in 2013. He decided he was ready for something different and planned to travel around the world to different places, racing when the opportunities were there. He sold most of his possession and two years ago he set out on his self built custom adventure bike, which he calls Basil.
Sjaak Lucassen, from The Netherlands, is a long distance motorcycle rider. He’s put a lot of miles on his bikes, notably between 2001 and 2006 he put 250,000 km (160,000 m) on a Yamaha YZF-R1. Not a bike you would expect someone to ride around the world. When it comes to choosing a bike to ride on an adventure, Sjaak says just to ride the bike you love.

Sam Chisholm is a helicopter pilot from Australia that was feeling the itch to have an adventure. He came up with a plan to ride a motorcycle from Argentina to Alaska, and so he quit his job and flew to South America. His two friends joined him and he's now half way through their adventure. They're proving that what seems impossible can be possible, by learning as they go. They traded skills with a couple of other riders, surfing for horseback riding.

Not for all people, but quite often for many of us, when we leave on a trip, be it a few weeks, months or a year or more, we face emotional and financial hurdles. First we spend time planning, and we reach a point where we have crossed all our t’s and dotted all our i’s. We know exactly how things are going to go, where we will be and how much money we need, or so we think. Once on the road, some of us may feel homesick, or lost. We get lonely, financially strapped, worried or unsure about how this trip will pan out.
