About

 The adventure has just begun. Come along for the ride!

Published on 07.03.2013

Adventure Touring is currently the fastest growing sector of the Motorcycle Industry. In spite of this rapid growth, there is still limited content out there that specializes in Adventure Riding. Most motorcycle publications cover a wide range of categories, with only the occasional Adventure Bike story squeezed in. In addition, much of the online content is poorly written and good content is hard to find.

As Adventure Bike Riders, we want high-quality Adventure Riding content and we don’t want to sift through Cruiser and Sport Bike articles to find it. We started ADV Pulse so we could bring all the best Adventure Bike content together in a single location. By making good Adventure Bike Content easier to find, you get more time to go “Riding” instead of spending hours “Googling” for information.

For some of us, Adventure Bike Riding is all about being one with nature and enjoying the scenic beauty. For others, it’s the intense physical challenge of exploring remote areas and adapting to whatever Mother Nature throws at us. The thing we all share in common is the desire to discover new places and have remarkable new experiences.

Through our website, you’ll learn more about the latest Adventure Bikes and Products to help guide your purchasing decisions. You can discover exciting new rides in faraway places or right on your own home turf. You’ll get tips on how to better prepare for your next trip and improve your riding skills.

Our goal is simple, to motivate Adventure Bike Riders to ride more and have more fun doing it.

Rob Dabney

Senior Editor

Rob Dabney started a lifelong obsession with motorcycles at the age of 15 when he purchased his first bike – a 1982 Honda MB5. Through his 20’s and 30’s he competed in off-road desert races, including the Baja 250, 500 and 1000. Eventually, his proclivity for exploration led him to dual sport and adventure riding. Rob’s never-ending quest to discover what’s around the next bend has taken him on Adventures in Mexico, North Africa, Europe, and throughout the American West. As a moto journalist, he enjoys inspiring others to seek adventure across horizons both near and far.

Jon Beck

Content Contributor

Jon Beck is fulfilling a dream of never figuring out what to be when he grows up. Racing mountain bikes, competitive surfing, and touring as a musician are somehow part of what led Jon to travel through over 40 countries so far as an adventure motorcycle photographer, journalist, and guide. From precision riding for cameras in Hollywood, to refilling a fountain pen for travel stories, Jon brings a rare blend of experience to the table. While he seems happiest when lost in a desert someplace, deadlines are met most of the time.

Bob Whitby

Content Contributor

Bob has been riding motorcycles since age 19 and working as a journalist since he was 24 — a long time ago, let’s put it that way. He quit for the better part of a decade to raise a family, then rediscovered adventure, dual sport and enduro riding in the early 2000s. He lives in Arkansas, America’s best-kept secret when it comes to riding destinations, and travels far and wide in search of dirt roads and trails.

Steve Kamrad

Content/Media Contributor

Steve has been labeled as a “Hired Gun” by one of the largest special interest publishing groups in America. His main focus now is video content creation as a “Shreditor” (thats shooter, producer, editor all in one nice, neat, run and gun package). If he’s not out competing in a NASA Rally Race you can find him on the East Coast leading around a rowdy group of ADV riders. Some say Steve_Kamrad has the best job in the world but he’s not in it for the money. He’s a gun for hire that can’t be bought and that’s the way we like him.
