Ted Simon

To many people Ted Simon sort of the founder of motorcycle travel and an idol. Though he wasn’t the first either, of course. He did travel around the world by motorcycle a long time ago, faced with some quite different challenges than those we face traveling today’s world. And he wrote an excellent book about it: Jupiters Travels. He later published another to tell all the stories he hadn’t dared put in the first one lest it got too big and no-one would read it.

He has actually published several books, all of which make for fantastic and somewhat retro reading. I am looking forward to reading them again, when I get home from our travels. He has also started the Ted Simon Foundation to “eencourage adventurers to go the extra mile and be reporters of truth in the world.
