Everything they bring, they carry on their backs or their bikes. That’s thousands of miles overlanding on a couple of 500cc dirt bikes. Awesome.

The full-length Motonomad film is scheduled to be released next year. The aerial shots were filmed with an XAircraft X650 quadcopter. Hat’s off to these guys.
