Chris and Zoe are departing on August 1, 2015 for their Tip to Tip 690 Adventure. The theoretical plan is to head from San Francisco up to Alaska, then back down through Central and South America all the way to Patagonia, then turn around and come back. We are doing this on two KTM 690 Enduros (a 2009 and a 2010).
About Chris and Zoe:
Chris Ventura is a bar manager and bartender at the Dogpatch staple restaurant, Serpentine. He is an avid motorcycle adventurer and has taken solo trips around California. He got into dirt biking only a few years ago, thanks to a certain lady, and also upgraded his KLR 650 to a KTM 950 Adventure. After a few adventures on the 950, he decided a slightly smaller bike would be more versatile, and once you go orange, you don’t go back. This trip has been a dream of his forever and he is excited to finally be starting it.
Zoe Rem is a bartender at the Dogpatch neighborhood cocktail bar, Third Rail. She has been riding dirt bikes for over ten years and got into supermoto racing and road racing in 2007. She hasn’t ridden on the street more than a handful of times since the first six months she had her M1 license in 2006, so this will be a change for her.
