(Denver, Colorado): A free one-hour multi-media seminar about 101 years of long distance motorcycling will be offered by America’s “number-one extreme motorcycle adventurer,” Dr. Gregory W. Frazier.

“The longest, most difficult motorcycle journey ever attempted.” (1912)

“The First ‘Coast To Coast’ Trip By A Motorcycle And Sidecar – A True Adventure” (1913)

“The Greatest Ever ‘Round-The-World Motorbike Adventure” (2012-2013)

“Five Times Around The Globe By Motorcycle” (1980-2014)

Time: 12:00 (12:00 Noon, Saturday, June 13, 2014) until 13:00
Place: BOB’S BMW, 10720 Guilford Road, Jessup, MD 20794
Telephone Number: 301-497-8949
Purpose: For over 100 years motorcyclists have been riding around the world on a wide variety of motorcycles ranging from Harley-Davidson to Vespa. The first person to solo around the world did so in 1912-1913 on a one speed, 7 horsepower Henderson motorcycle. The fastest person to circle the globe on a motorcycle did it in less than 17 days.

The first couple to ride across the United States made their incredible adventure in 1913 on a Henderson motorcycle equipped with a self-made sidecar. During their ride, having left Long Beach, California on May 24, 1913, they marked the trail for other motorcyclists like Cannonball Baker to follow, and eventually arrived in New York City on September 6, 1913.

The free seminar, LONG DISTANCE RIDING ADVENTURES – 101 YEARS, or FRAZIER TALKS NAKED, dispels some of the myths and tales about the first motorcycle adventure riders while sharing numerous secrets and exposing naked truths of modern day adventure travel. Seminar presenter, Dr. Gregory W. Frazier, has himself circled the world five times and is currently on a pit stop during a sixth attempt to “girdle the globe.” Author of 14 books, producer of 10 films on motorcycling and well-known Adventure Editor-at-Large and columnist for several motorcycle publications, Frazier says of his own adventures, “I hate adventure that involves snakes or sharks, or falling down when motorcycling au natural.”

DOWN AND OUT IN PATAGONIA, KAMCHATKA AND TIMBUKTU, Frazier’s latest book, is a recounting of a lifetime of global motorcycle travel and adventure. Published by the world’s largest motor book publisher, www.motorbooks.com, the all color coffee table book has been described by industry insiders as “Amazing!”

Frazier will be available at BOB’S BMW Saturday afternoon to autograph books (bring your own or buy one from BOB’S), “schmooze, kiss babies and mix with like-minded motorhead adventurers of any year, type, make or model motorcycle.”
