Motonomad III: The Next Chapter of the Moto Travel Series Begins!

 Motonomad is back to inspire you to drop everything and travel the world!

Published on 09.04.2017

When Motology Films first announced their motorcycle travel documentary film ‘Motonomad’ in 2014, most people thought filmmaker Adam Riemann and his riding partner Chris Hollis were a little crazy for choosing to ride KTM 500 EXCs — bikes better-suited for the motocross track than a 32-day, 7,000 kilometer journey from Austria to Egypt. But the two racing veterans, having years of experience on KTM enduro bikes, wouldn’t have it any other way.

Despite the race-tuned KTM’s limited oil capacity, short maintenance intervals and lack of a windscreen, the pair pulled off their epic unsupported journey. The 500 EXCs also proved they were still light enough to tackle tough, steep, technical terrain confidently, even after loading the lightweight bikes up with camping gear, extra fuel and camera equipment.

The amazing footage captured during Motonomad I spurred Motonomad II, which took them on a journey of 9,000 km through Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia. Impressive riding from a trio of skilled enduro riders combined with the surreal Central Asian steppe as a backdrop, offered the perfect ingredients for yet another stunning film. Adam Riemann is now back at it again with a third installation of the popular series — Motonomad III.

“It’s interesting to see the global following that’s amassed from Motonomad and Motonomad II. I receive a lot of positive messages monthly from people in different countries who are inspired to create their own motorcycle adventure after seeing the first two films. It’s really fulfilling to know the reason behind making Motonomad is being received so clearly – just get on your bike and travel any way you can!” — Adam Riemann

Motonomad III will embark on a Dakar Rally-inspired 30-day South America journey covering 400-800 kilometers per day over challenging terrain. Adam will be joined by Mark Portbury, his riding partner in the first Motonomad film, and their newest team member, Chris Hollis. Chris is a world-class rider who’s been racking up championships in the Australian Enduro, Off-Road and Endurocross Series.

Motology Films just released “The Spirit of Motonomad,” a promo for the third installment. In this recent video clip, the Motonomad crew first welcome their new teammate by challenging him to a race that will determine the pecking order during the trip. Next they get their 2017 KTM 500 EXCs prepped for the journey with larger fuel tanks, custom-made windscreens, Giant Loop Coyote Saddlebags, Pirelli Scorpion tires and 15/48 gearing. The suspensions are also re-sprung/re-valved to accommodate the extra weight of the riders and their gear. A final shakedown ride has them pumped and ready to go.

The slickly produced teaser has our wanderlust gauge piqued. If this is any indication of the finished product it will no doubt be an impressive next chapter of the Motonomad legacy. Their journey begins in just a few weeks. Watch for updates on Motology Film’s Facebook Page and Website.
