A Day's Work...So Close to Impossible

Posted by scottiedawg , September 27, 2016 - * * * * * · 12,003 views

A Day's Work...So Close to Impossible The ride through the eyes of the camera...  I found myself the other day at the base of a trail that quite frankly scared the crap out of me. I straddled my seat, both feet on the ground, motor idling, and my neck looking so far up, the back of my helmet hit the plastic drone case that I had strapped to my body. Video or it didn't happen, right? Well...

The Passion of Nachos

The Passion of Nachos My Backyard-an official tour video of MotoMission Peru  I remember when I first became hooked on dirt bikes. It was during a ride with Barry, one of my growin' up buddies. I rode his brothers Honda XR80 as I did my best to keep up. I recall being so far out of my comfort zone and the blood rushing thrill of that first ride. It didn't take long for th...


How to be Grateful for Your Next Flat Tire

Posted by scottiedawg , April 28, 2016 - - - - - - · 4,092 views

How to be Grateful for Your Next Flat Tire I am spoiled! There is no other way to explain it. A few weeks ago, I took out a young fella on a dirtbike adventure through the Andes of Peru; Four days of enduro bliss. We took a million pictures, played around with different video angles, and rode our butts off. Did I mention it was a legendary ride? I consider it a privilege to take out clients on tou...


Ain't no stinkin' rules!

Posted by scottiedawg , March 30, 2016 - * * * * * · 3,276 views

Ain't no stinkin' rules! I have an upcoming tour in a few days; A guy from southern California coming down for a 4 day hard enduro excursion. This guy sounds like a really good rider. I can feel them out with any number of questions and bike talk. I am not sure what he said that gave me the impression, but I feel pretty confident that he will be able to ride anything I put under...


From Costa Rica to Peru...This guy loves dirtbikes!

From Costa Rica to Peru...This guy loves dirtbikes! His eyes came alive as he scooted over next to me to show me a video on his phone. The broken screen made it a bit hard to see, but as the video played, I realized the deep rooted passion that Gabriel has for motorcycles. WATCH THE OFFICIAL TOUR VIDEO!!!

It was a short video of Gabriel straddling his KTM 2 stroke, his two year old boy in front wit...


Somebody Help Me!

Posted by scottiedawg , January 30, 2016 - - - - - - · 3,357 views

Somebody Help Me! A few years back, I heard about a trail that went from an obscure little draw in the Sacred Valley of the Incas to a place called Lares. If you have ever been to either one of these places, you would know that the description is quite vague. That is how things work here in Peru. In fact, asking for directions is like using a wagging tail on an excited dog...


Mangos at the Bottom

Posted by scottiedawg , November 28, 2015 - - - - - - · 1,880 views

Mangos at the Bottom Tough ride, but the view was worth it
I try to explain the grandeur of the Andes in various forms of writing and I still feel inadequate to accurately describe what these mountains do to my mind. Prospective customers ask all sorts of questions. How will the altitude affect me? or what will the weather be like on the tour? It doesn't really work like tha...

Posted by scottiedawg , October 23, 2015 - * * * * * · 954 views

It's for the kids...Come ride the Andes of Peru! People often ask me about what I do. I find myself explaining the process over and over again. To this point, telling the story hasn't gotten old or boring, it just energizes me and reaffirms my passions and focus. This truly is a motorcycle blog. My goal for this post is to share a business model that uses my favorite hobbie, dirtbikes, to make a differe...
