About Austin Vince:
Often billed as "the REAL Charley Boorman" and referred to by MCN (Motorcycle News), UK’s largest bike publication, as "one of Britain’s leading adventure motorcyclists" and "the best speaker on the circuit," Vince is a wealth of knowledge on the subject of world travel by bike. His talks are legendary on the adventure travel scene. He drives home the core message that anyone can do this stuff, and it’s far easier than the celebrities want you to think it is.
Austin’s presentation is about two hours in length and is regarded as the best adventure rider shows in the UK. However, it’s not all knobbly tires and sprockets, he covers a wide range of subjects including team-building, low budget adventure biking, spaghetti westerns, Soviet iconography, 60s Garage bands and super 8 cameras. It’s all woven together in the narrative of his 2001 Terra Circa expedition and its fairly legendary first crossing of eastern Siberia’s Zilov Gap. Best of all, Austin’s message is totally inspirational and inclusive as he hammers home the simple fact that ANYONE can motorcycle around the world on pretty much any machine.
