My favorite bike: Light, well equipped and suited for all terrain. Like my own KTM 690 Adventure.
Originally from Belgium, Laurens lived abroad in the UK and Sweden, doing complicated technical things behind a computer. He realised he didn't want to do this for ever and has since been on adventures like helping to build a boat in Norway, sailing the Swedish coast, riding his motorcycle from East to Western Europe and living and working in Australia. He came back from Australia to continue the adventure as a tourguide with Edelweiss!
