David and Louise are Two Wheel Exploring and this is their blog dedicated to ramblings about motorcycle touring. David and Louise are two, thirty somethings who love exploring new countries on two wheels. They feel it’s the best way to travel – it exposes you to the bare reality of wherever you are and it draws on all your senses. It is also the best way to meet new people; on motorcycles you cannot hide behind a windscreen. Motorbikes always seem to attract the curiosity of locals who always want to chat.
David and Louise’s first big adventure was riding 7,000km from London to The Gambia in October/November 2012.
They pointed their wheels towards Portsmouth on 17 October 2012 and took 5 weeks to make their way to Banjul. The journey enjoyed a bit of Spain, meanders through beautiful Morocco, amazing open roads in Western Sahara and arid Mauritania. After reaching tropical Senegal David and Louise made their way to the thin strip of The Gambia; their final destination.
Their journey on two BMW F650 can be read through the blog pages on this site that they updated along the way.
David and Louise love sharing their experiences, enjoy meeting other travellers and are available to speak at events.
