If you're an avid motorcyclist, and especially one who identifies themselves with the dual-sport or adventure crowd, it's likely you've gazed upon your bike more than once, dreaming of the day you could leave everything behind to travel the world.

My friend, if you are serious about it, it will happen. For now, you can live vicariously through Kevin Chow.

The former marketing manager of Barnes Wheaton Auto Group—which has six locations in B.C., including three Harley-Davidson dealerships—is about nine months into a motorcycle trip that will take him around the globe.

His route?

“I will be heading south from Vancouver, B.C., Canada, through USA, Mexico, Central America into South America," explains Chow on his website. "I plan to ship the motorcycle to South Africa and go north (or) east of Africa to Europe. Once in Europe, I will then plan to either ride through Russia, Kazakstan (and) Mongolia, Russia to Japan, or down through the ‘Stan’ countries to southeast Asia to Japan. This is the loose plan, as the logistics and visas ahead will decide where I end up."

It will take him two-plus years to complete. Chow left on February 2, 2017, and as of November 14, he was in Ecuador, having logged over 46,000 kilometres on his 2010 BMW R1200GS to get there.

Chow is blogging about the trip on his World Overland website and keeping his over 3,500 social media followers regularly updated on Instagram and Facebook
