On August 7 Dave Marsden and Ian Wright will be setting off on the first leg of their round the world journey on Kawasaki W650s.

They will be reporting back every day on their journey and the things that happen to them as they ride first through Spain and North Africa and come back up through Western Europe and riding through Scandinavia.

After a break for Christmas, they’ll be off on leg two: Australia-New Zealand-Japan.

The bikes will be shipped from Japan to Mexica for leg three, which will take in both South and North America.

The fourth and final leg will see brave pair taking on a crossing of Asia.

Keep checking the site for more on this extraordinary journey and the preparations for it.
