Since producing the first M-72 motorcycle in 1941, the skilled artisans at URAL Motorcycles have been producing their machines by hand!
Here’s a quick look inside the Ural factory as they assemble one of their infamous sidecars!
For those of you who likes adventure in a different way, make sure to check the first edition of the Inca Rally!
The Rally starts August 1st, so you still have 2 months to register and make your way to Peru.
I became interested in Somaliland as a traveler and as an economist. At the time, I was writing a chapter of an economics textbook and wanted to use the pirates of the Gulf of Aden as the topic of the chapter.
Overland Expo was filled with great vendors and exciting products – it’s hard to pick one amongst the group! Here’s a quick interview with Triple Aught Design‘s founder and owner. Make sure to check the Expedition Portal channel on YouTube for many more great interviews with Persephone!

They all make great reads.
There is always a big argument between motorcyclists on the best option for luggage, specifically the side and rear cases.
After eight months of full-time logistics and planning, Brady and Miller arrive at the shores of the Arctic Ocean and the official start of Expeditions 7.
Possibly one of the biggest misconceptions about overlanding is the idea that you need to save for years, buy your own vehicle, spent tons of time and money outfitting it and then take a year off before you can go out to explore.
