Jupiter's Travels

Ted Simon on his Triumph Motorcycle
Ted Simon's Triumph T100 Tiger

It seemed fitting that we mark the beginning of our journey by acknowledging what for Ashley and a number of us was our first taste of a motorcycle expedition. It was this book that planted the seed and inspired us to dream of tracing our own line a map.

For those unfamiliar, Jupiter’s Travels is a seminal account of Ted Simon’s four year, 50,000 mile, overland circumnavigation of the World. He recalls the places he passes, the people he met and thoughts he had along the way. All on a 1973 Triumph Tiger 100 - a reminder that determination will get you a lot further than the latest gadget.
