Introducing Craig Luke to the S2SADV Motorcycle Group

Alrighty Adventurers!!! The 2024 season is upon us, and I have plans. Big Plans!!

You may or may not know me, but I’ve been around the BC riding community for a few years now. I’m newer to motos, but I’ve been a backcountry explorer since I was in grade school. I've been a map geek all my life and back in 2020 I put together Ride the Kootenays to publish all the cool stuff to ride between the Rockies and the Okanagan. Last year I ramped up and created I Think We Missed a Turn to cover everywhere!

This year is going to be a bit different, I’m taking the show on the road! I’m building out an Isuzu box truck into an overlander and mobile store! I’ll be coming to a moto event near (or far!) you all summer long as well as hosting a bunch of my own Intro to Moto-Camping weekends. The riding community has been so welcoming and supportive, it’s time to give back where I can! With a lifetime of backcountry knowledge, as well as a career in Outdoor Retail selling and designing equipment, I find myself with much I can share.

So, how the heck am I going to live the dream summer and do nothing but travel around, camp and ride bikes? Well, I’m a dirtbag. Always have been (from my climbing days) and always will be. Soooooo, I’m jumping in with both feet and trying to make it all work as a traveling salesman and instructor. I’m also the head mapping geek with the new EPIC Gps Adventures non-profit and will be showing off currently published routes and creating new routes too!

What I’ll be teaching;

  • Navigation skills
  • Packing techniques
  • Backcountry communication
  • Camp Kitchens
  • Tool setups and trail maintenance
  • Basically everything you need to know to get out there and motocamp!!
  • I WON’T be teaching any riding skills, I have sooooo much to still learn myself!

What I’ll be able to provide in person at an event;
  • Turkana soft luggage systems
  • Primus camping stoves, equipment and fuel bottles
  • Titan Straps
  • ZOLEO Satellite Communicators
  • Baofeng and AlpineX GSRM radios
  • Silky trail saws
  • Aeropress travel coffee makers
  • ALL the Merch!! T-shirts, buffs, stickers

So, if there’s an event you think I should be at, or you want me to do a weekend near you, let’s talk!
