A riders tale – Istanbul and back again!

Motorcycle tour Asia

3 ex-soldiers, 3 motorbikes on 1 journey. An epic adventure from England to Istanbul, destination – Asia!

This book tells the tale of an amazing motorcycle ride. It re-lives the extraordinary events, the ups and downs, highs and lows along with the accounts of daily problems that the riders have to be overcome.

‘Let your riding do the talking…’

Simon Hayes was born in Birmingham, England and joined the British Army at the age of 16. He served in the Royal Corps of Transport (RCT ) in different places around the world. He gained numerous qualifications until he left the army in 1996. Motorcycle Tour Europe was an ambition.

After leaving the forces, Simon started his own business, RMT Motorcycle Training. Which teaches riders from learner level to advanced training in the UK and abroad. He is also a partner in this businesses and Motorcycle Instructor Training Centre, both of which are online motorcycle training resources.

Simon has written extensively for motorcycle magazines and publications, did all the content for his website and for the VideoBiker. He now owns Motorcycle Riders Hub, has developed the online training for learner riders and has a few other books on learning to ride in progress.

This book is a detailed account of a ride he undertook from England to Istanbul with two army friends. The other book he wrote is called ‘Montenegro Baby!’ and is about a group trip to Montenegro and back. It is a daily journal of the ups and downs of a trip with a group of riders.

Simon is something of a workaholic but when he has spare time he enjoys playing golf, swimming and cycling to keep in shape. He loves nothing better than touring on his motorcycle and has recently started off road riding in preparation for a tour to Moscow (Covid and the invasion of Ukraine has put paid to that).

He also has plans for more books in the future, that will help learner riders to be safe and confident on the roads. In addition to this he has a passion to have an online coaching platform. It helps riders improve their knowledge and skills to become better riders.

A Motorcycle Tour Europe is food for the sole!
