We're Bridget Hallam and Alan Cox, motorcycle adventurers from Australia.
Together we've ridden over 160,000 km two-up in Australia, Europe, Asia and North Africa on our 2008 BMW R1200GS named Beauty and our 2008 BMW R1200GSA named Scarlett.
In 2019 we shipped Beauty from Sydney to Barcelona and rode 27,000 km over 24 weeks through 26 countries.
We rode from Morocco to Norway and from Portugal to the Black Sea, crisscrossing many amazing countries in between.
We finished our second 24 week European tour in 2022, this time shipping Beauty from Melbourne to London.
We started at the popular Adventure Bike Rider Festival in the UK and then rode east through the French, Swiss and Italian Alps, the Balkans, Türkiye, then back to Portugal through Greece, Italy and Spain.
We're now back in Europe for 2023 to continue our adventures.
