Most people take a big Beemer when they ride around the world, or at least a mid-sized bike like a KLR650. Not Steph Jeavons.
Following in the footsteps of folks like Lois Pryce and Simon Gandolfi, Jeavons is eschewing oversized adventure bikes and is taking a Honda CRF250L around the world. She hopes to visit all seven continents, and is even breaking the RTW adventure mold by planning to ride through some of Canada. Nobody rides through Canada … except Canadians.
She’s planning to camp a lot along the way, but like any round-the-world rider, she could use a roof over her head and a hot shower from time to time, so check out her site – if you’re on her route, maybe you can help out.
If you’re interested in kitting out a small bike for this sort of travel yourself, take a good look at the mods she’s done. They’re very sensible for a bike this size – she’s got soft Kriega bags, which should save weight, a lightweight skid plate, wraparound handguards and a windshield/headlight rack combo that appears to come from TCI.
