The Modern Motorcycle Diaries

Alex Chacon

Alex Chacón is a fellow biker who has done the ultimate motorcycle expedition. He calls it ‘The Modern Motorcycle Diaries‘.

Rest of us can only dream of doing something like that. He sold off everything to collect funds for the expedition and rode from Alaska to Argentina in 500 days through interstates, highways, dirt roads, no roads, mud, rivers, through hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, rain, hail, sun shine, snow, ice roads you name it and made it back! And all this was to raise awareness and money for Children of Uganda.

Here is a 9 minute video he uploaded on YouTube recently that went viral instantly.

Would you like to do the same?

Get inspired from the real biker (Alex).
