Pavin’s course The Essential Guide to Any Motorcycle Traveler is a real gem. Even at the full price, this course will pay for itself in spades and works out at less than the cost of a dinner for 2 at a good restaurant. For me it was a no brainer, I am an accountant by trade but you don’t have to be an accountant to figure out good value when you see it. The 3 free books you get with the course are worth more than the course, that says it all. Only on the chapter on camping equipment I have saved money that I can put towards better gear from the previous chapter. The course is full of tips and hints from Pavin’s first hand experience so I can save making mistakes that he and others before him have made, the ones that are obvious and make sense but there are other lessons which are not so obvious and could save me a lot of trouble and heart ache whether riding on a short trip or an epic adventure. I have been riding motorbikes for nearly 4 decades and only in recent years have I started to enjoy long trips away from home. I have lived all over the world and have seen some wonderful places that I plan to return to on my motorbike and with the help of The Essential Guide to Any Motorcycle Traveler, I am sure I will do it with greater confidence and a lot less hassle. I am not being paid to write this review, other people attending the course, I am sure will testify the same of their own free will. Ask yourself this question, how many courses have you ever been to where the instructor gives you his personal phone number so you can ask questions about the course or advice in general. I know I haven’t and I have attended quite a few in my lifetime and I have also delivered a few courses of my own and I have never shared my phone number with any of my trainees.

This is a quite unique and brilliant course for those who want to take a step forward in their motor riding practices. Unique because i have not seen any other structured and online course such as this one before. Pavlin follows a well planned content with good interfacing between the different parts/ lessons of the course. Also he covers not only the technical basics but also the psychological and emotional parts of the concept he is talking about. Gives personal tricks and shares proven tips. Brilliant because, Pavlin indeed has tried and proven the concepts and terms what he is talking about. Its proven means you have less likelihood to find the bitter way if smth is going to work or not... He is honest and to the point. No bullshittingAnd no sales/benefitting purposes that lies behind as far as i see. He does well occasionally extra emphasize certain points, that happens yes.. for good in overall i think. For the records, i m since 5 years daily on my motorbike for work-home travel and occasionally on small (day- weekend) trips in western EU. I had a Yamaha Fazer FZ6, and currently i drive a Honda VFR800F, strictly sports tourers thus...

The one and only Source you will need to improve yourself concerning riding and all about trips. Following Pavlins Youtube-Channel since 2017, I thought one day, it would be great to have all the information available in one place because you don't want to be dependent on Youtube. And my dream became true with this Course - Available anytime anywhere! Thank you for your effort Pavlin! With your inspiration I got hooked with riding again, got the license, a bike and now planning trips like you. What a gift. Sincerely, your greatest fan ;-)

This course is a well thought out, informative, and already has been a cost saving to me. When everyone on line is trying to sell you their latest adventure widget that will improve your life on a long distance adventure, Pavlin lays out the simple and honest truths by his own personal experience. He is not trying to change your mind, just telling you his experience as a long distance motorcycle adventurer/traveller. An example that comes to mind: I was wanting a $700 USD tent that would be "the best thing I ever brought on my future trip...". Pavlin's simple explanation of "weight always matters" and his explanation with examples that when traveling sometimes tenting is not necessarily the cheapest option. The money savings right there paid for the course AND added to my budget. The course is simply laid out in bite size pieces and is easy to navigate around. I have recommended this to my long distance non-adventure cruiser riders as I feel they would get something out of this too. Different bikes, roads, but same philosophy would apply.

This course provides very useful and practical tips for any motorcyclist. Very good information for short to long motorcycle trips. It is very well categorized and easy to follow. The course gets you thinking out of the box to see trips are possible in more ways than you initially think. A number of provided advice I also experienced during my first trips and adjusted already so practically know they are very true. After completing the course I have the mental push and fine polished advice to live towards a motorcycle traveling future.

Pavlin covers every aspect of long distance adventure motorcycle travel in this course. Topics cover practical suggestions and often times unique solutions to trip prep, practical ways to make traveling easier and more fun and how to interact with people and the environment you are interacting with along the way. An interesting topic he discusses is the mental aspect of preparing for a long trip. Giving yourself permission to actually leave home and break with your daily routine. I enjoyed working my way through this course. I'm glad I jumped in and got all the information in one place. I've changed my thinking about how I want to travel on my motorcycle after completing this course. My travels will now be much simpler and less stressful than before. Brian B. USA
