Robbie Maddison – No longer a Pipe Dreamer!

Several years ago I met a crazy Swiss man name Mathias Schmid who was traveling around the world on an old Honda TransAlp.  We met on the road in the Sierra’s, and I had just completed my first night of motorcycle camping alone and thought I was a bad ass.  Well it turns out he was two and half years into his world trip and had spent most nights alone motorcycle camping.  He told me that the TransAlp was his favorite choice for the journey and dreamed of making a rigging for the rear using a paddle tire so he could travel down rivers, specifically the Amazon.  I thought he was putting a little too much of a special weed in his pipe, but it turns out perhaps so was Robbie.  Only it isn’t a dream anymore….it is possible!
