One million kilometres.
Martin never leaves his motorcycle behind on his trips through the desert: The photographer always has to assemble and reassemble his machine for his journeys. But to him, the effort is worth it.
"I've travelled over a million kilometres by motorcycle", says motorcycle adventurer Michael Martin. On his latest expedition, "Planet Desert", he rode a BMW R 1200 GS Adventure. For this project, Martin tackled Mongolia, the most challenging desert for a motorcycle. He crossed the Gobi desert in -40°C temperatures. Martin installed spikes in his studded tyres in order to ride on the frozen desert.
