If you decide to travel from Alaska to Argentina on a bike, you wouldn’t choose a Honda Grom, I guess. But not Doug, a 23-years-old guy from a small University town in Oklahoma.
After reading a book about international motorcycle travels, One More Day Everywhere: Crossing 50 Borders on the Road to Global Understanding, by Glen Heggstad, Doug, instead of getting a job, decided to sell all his belongings and take off around the world on a motorcycle. For this purpose, he’s chosen not a typical ADV motorcycle – his Honda Grom.
Doug is going to ride 30,000 miles in total to Alaska and then all the way down to Argentina. He won’t be alone, but with his friend on an R3.
That’s Doug’s mod list for this really ambitious trip:
What about the reasons of this “Grom Way Round”? Well, as a resident of the same small town for his entire life, Doug decided it was about time to go see and experience the rest of the world for himself. The main idea is not to get more likes, followers and subscribers. As most people won't be able or willing to change their lives and go on a trip around the world on a motorcycle, Doug wants to provide the audience with that experience, and he wants that experience to be as close to reality as possible - no pretending or fake smiles. He just wants to see the world and show other people its beauty.
