Time: 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Come learn how to travel the world with just you and your motorcycle! This how-to session is co-listed with Seattle Free School and Hostelling International, an international non-profit, as part of their Winter Wanderlust speaker series. Free talks are held every Sunday afternoon in February from 2 - 4pm at the HI-Seattle hostel, 520 S. King Street.
To bring: a curiosity about the world & motorbikes, and a maybe a pencil, if you are into note taking.
Jessica Dally has been riding motorcycles for just over two years and in that time has taken a solo motorcycle trip down the Oregon Coast in late November (brrr!) and traveled by motorcycle through Baja on her own. She believes that motorcycles are an excellent way to travel the world as they give you more freedom to explore and yet don\'t shut you off from the people and environment the way automobiles do. She\'ll be discussing travelling solo as a female on a motorcycle as well as how to learn to ride and why motorcycles make such a great vehicle to explore the world.
Colin Busch started mixing business with pleasure almost 15 years ago when he turned his tendency for two wheel wanderlust into a career with BMW motorcycles. In addition to his professional involvement with bikes, he has also traveled extensively through and around all four corners if the United States as well as recently completing an 8 month, 20,000+ mile voyage through 12 countries in Central and South America.
He will be discussing his experiences with long distance, low budget travel as well as his extensive use of hostels in his many adventures.
