Reason why people enjoy being on tour with me: I love exploring foreign countries, including their historical remnants, their unusual landscapes and different cultures. All of this I want to share with other people interested in bike travelling
Favorite destination: As I live next door to France and Switzerland I love the Alps but also the rest of the world, like South Africa, Mongolia and Patagonia, just to name a few
What I like:
Following MotoGP races, English humour, good grip and a cold cider at the end of a good riding day.
MotoGP-Rennen ansehen, englischen Humor, guten Grip und einen kalten Cidre am Ende eines guten Motorrad-Tages
What I dislike: Mosquitoes, coffee, traffic jams and greedy people
Hobbies: Music concerts, fitness, Thai-boxing, and travelling, sometimes even without motorbike
My favorite bike: One of my favorite bikes it the good old Africa Twin but I also like my current bike, the Triumph Tiger Explorer
Despite the fact that Tom was born and raised in Luxemburg he did not, at any point in his life, want to become a banker. Instead he wanted to ride motorcycles, the more the better, and with his father being a professional riding instructor Tom was able to get off to a good start. He began riding in 1998 and the Alps, spreading out not far south of his doorstep, provided the perfect training ground. To finance his passion Tom became a bus driver, a stressful job even in Luxemburg, so he joined Edelweiss in 2015, hoping to find some relief from daily stress situations. Keep hoping, Tom!
