Dan and John Clemens
Dan and John are a couple of brothers living in the great northwest of the USA. They've been doing bunch of adventure travel over the years and have done a ton of motorcycling.

They recently completed a dirt bike trip from the California/Oregon border all the way north to the Oregon/Washington border - off road - about 800 miles.

Dan Clemens
Dan developed a love of traveling early on and has been to over 125 countries and conducted business in most of Western Europe, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Columbia, Venezuela, Costa Rica, Honduras and of course the US.
He's been riding motorcycles since he was about 8 years old and has ridden in all 50 states, Austrailia, England, Europe, Central and South America and everywhere in between on dirt bikes and street bikes.
His love of rivers came at an early age and became an accomplished river guide in 80's with 200+ commercial trips thru class 5 rivers and countless other trips in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, Utah, Colorado and British Columbia Canada. In the late 80's he purchased and operated an expedition company in Idaho to run the Main Salmon River - Eclipse Expeditions ran 5 and 6 day trips down the 'River of No Return' during the summers and did their best to convince others to go with them down to Costa Rica, Honduras, and Belize in the winters.
He also developed a passion for "all things mechanical" a little too early - he took everything in the house apart (much to the dismay of Mom) and usually put it back together. Sometimes there were a few parts left over but the thing usually worked just fine when he was done. He quickly moved on to riding mini-bikes, motorcycles, go carts, and when he could drive, to cars, dune buggies and other things with wheels and engines. He is an accomplished mechanic and all around "bodger" (as the Brits are fond of saying - in the US it might be referred to as "kludging").
Dan's had some business success along the way. Lately he's spent a few years at Silvaris Corporation as the COO and Dan was one of the original investors in Silvaris. He's also had some fun at some wacky journeys over the last few years - check them out at: www.creamytreats.com and www.busmansholiday.net and www.greaseballrally.com



 John Clemens
John is no slacker when it comes to traveling - his preferred mode of transport is the motorcycle. Be it an off-road bike, a big touring cruiser, or a lean mean crotch rocket, John loves them all. Past motorcycle trips include riding to Alaska, Buying a bike off of Ebay on the east coast and riding it across this great country to Oregon. He's spent 10+ years racing everything from older twin bikes to road racers, flat track and Supermoto.

He's a very accomplished mechanic having built and/or worked on almost all of his racing bikes. He knows his way around a car too - Having restored an old Porsche from boxes of parts, to a classic that almost looks new again.



John earns his money as an independent service technician for graphic arts/platesetting equipment. He's had his own business for nearly 17 years and has survived all the shakeouts in the industry because he's good at what he does and offers customers a great service at a reasonable price.

John is also an experienced wood worker - one of his past lives he did a lot of restoration work on authentic French antique furniture. The fellow he worked for would go to France and buy up container loads of furniture in various states of repair, ship them back to Portland and John would put the puzzle back together and make them beautiful again.
