The motorcycle community is a pretty close knit group of people. We wave when we pass each other, we’re always willing to help out a fellow rider when they have a problem and many of us have an open door for traveling motorcyclists. We connect through social media and forums, with many of us forming lifelong friendships. And sometimes we’re fortunate to come across people who are so generous and so kind that it’s almost surreal. And imagine coming across not just one person, but several people who through their actions confirm your faith in humanity. And that’s just what happened to Sean Burch from the United States, who found friendship all over the world and kindness in strangers.

A few years ago Benji Brundin went through some major life changes, including losing his dream career and his wife, and decided that the best course of action was to break from conventional life. So, leaving his past behind, challenging his fears and limitations he bought a van and outfitted it for adventure, then headed out to circumnavigate Australia with a dirt bike strapped to the back. Although he had never ridden a motorcycle before, adventure riding has now become Benji’s focus, and has led to him discovering a passion of riding in sand and ultimately crossing all ten deserts in Australia. He’s been travelling solo and unsupported, and had some amazing experiences with wildlife and in the outdoors culminating in a book about his adventures called Hunting Fear.

Harley-Davidson has announced the Pan America, an “adventure touring” motorcycle which is projected to be released in May, 2021. There’s been mixed reactions amongst the adventure motorcycle community, as Harley-Davidson has traditionally been known for big and loud bikes. We went to Harley-Davidson and to industry expert Tim Calhoun to get some of our biggest questions answered including what’s behind the thought process of the Harley-Davidson breaking in to the adventure motorcycle market with the new Pan America? What can we expect from this new adventure touring bike? Will the adventure motorcycling community embrace the Pan America and are we even willing to give it a chance?

One of the most feared surfaces for riders is sand and although some riders probably hold that fear level a little too high, it stems from the level of difficulty that sand presents for most of us.
