Web Name: Alex's Motorcycle Adventure Alaska, Mexico, Central + South America! Modern Motorcycle Diaries






It took me 3 years to film and 5 months to edit this 3 minute video for the end product your about to see. I've never seen a video like this before and dare to say it's the first of it's kind. A truly innovative and epic film to watch! (Be sure to turn it up to 1080p Resolution for best viewing results)Thanks to everyone who was a part of this video, either if your in it or even just gave me a place to sleep in or around these amazing places during my travels, my experience would have never been the same without you or this video possible.And thank to everyone for the well wishes and ongoing support! Lets make this one go viral as well! Share it! ThanksFor those you wondering what I've been doing lately, I can tell you it's been a very eventful time in the Middle East. Lots of great projects and future global trips are being planned as I write this. In the mean time I share with you my new production below, a great ride with the Royal Enfield Guys in Muscat Oman, my thanks to them!Also if you haven't already seem my KTM adventure through some of the most remote and beautiful villages in the Middle East here's a link to check it out as well.KTM 990 Adventure Album in Oman - Middle EastStay tunned, lots of exciting new developments will soon be revealed!!!!!It's finally here everyone, the documented epic adventure of Alex Chacon (aka myself) heading up the Himalayas with GoPro. What an amazing experience to be part of such a great production, thanks for joining the Modern Motorcycle Diaires GoPro! Hope to see you soon again!If you've wondered what I have been up to these last 3 months since my last viral video of the Modern Motorcycle Diaries 500 days Alaska to Argentina, here it is! I got the amazing opportunity to work with GoPro shooting an epic motorcycle ride through India, that is featured in their new launch video just released. There will also be a side video of just my journey through the Himalayas being released in the coming weeks as well that's I'll embed as well.All the motorcycle stuff you'll see in the video is me! and my famous backpack!You'll also see my face and my famous backpack on the homepage (scroll to the bottom) as well, kind of a awesome to finally see some of my stuff featured with GoPro, a dream come true, little did I think of the amazing place I would be in right now, just 2 years ago when I started on my Modern Motorcycle Diaries driving from Alaska to Argentina. There's lots of more amazing rides scheduled so be sure to stay tuned!As per my India experience, here goes!What a crazy and amazing time it was chillin out with the GoPro guys. I admire the work and dedication it takes to pull off such a shooting, so much more than I ever expected. I was great to finally have someone filming me what I do best, riding and exploring, instead of having to film everything with just my one GoPro, and one battery, but somehow my determination still got that video from Latin America over 1.2 million views, so imagine what a full fledged production will do!?Roads in the HimalayasMy journey through India took me from the hustling city of New Delhi to Jaipur, land of elephants, monkeys, and crazy traffic and driving. As yes we all played some elephant polo!We then headed north to Manali and the entrance of the majestic HimalayasWe continued north into Leh and Lakhdad where the pictures speak for themselves!The ride was amazing and gorgeous to say the least, and the experience of the people and places was unforgettable. We passed by military outposts, temples, shrines, monks and not to mentioned the crazy passes in elevation, we were sticking around 15,000 feet. Most of us had headaches from lack of oxygen for a few days until we acclimated. Makes for the crazy driving experience to say the least!Doing some filming, as you can see by the gopro launch video, there's a scene taken from thisIt was inspiring to be in such a beautiful landscapeOne of the coolest lakes I've seen yet!Finally made it to the world's highest motorable and drivable road at over 18,00 ft near Leh India!The flight back to New Delhi from Leh gave a last spectacular look of the HimalayasIt was an incredible experience to have a dream and idea come true with GoPro. Thanks to everyone involved to make it happen!In any case a new contest has been created for GoPro where you can enter to film your adventure of a life time. And I'm honored to have started the trend!I then set off on my own to the Taj Mahal after saying good bye to the GoPro guys, as what would a visit to India be without it and a good o'l Richshaw ride!After these two weeks I set off on my own adventure through Nepal, renting a $4 a day motorcycle and cruising around a week and a half through some crazy roads.I took a quick flight from Delhi, where I was surprised to see this at the airport, interesting how so many religions coexist here together in IndiaI arrived in Kathmandu, the craziest place and city dynamic I've experience thus far. Barely 1 day getting gas and people were already trying to rip me off. lolTemples everywhere, in the weirdest of places, in alleys, behind houses etc. The food was goodTHe roads around these parts of the world are incredible congested and hectic, one bad move and that's it, your dead, the truck driver isn't going to care if he hits you or not! I was hitt, scraped, I did some hitting, with lots of honking all the way. The worst is all the air pollution that your tasting the whole way through this crowed country.My journey took me on a loop of Nepal to Pokhara, Kathmandu and small rice villagesI also got ridiculously lost through the mountains, taking this street bike through some of the roughest and muddiest roads I've ever seen in my life! Not including endless river crossing up to my waist in depth, as it was the monsoon season!But the little Baja Pulsar pulled through like a champ on street tires non the less!After my ridiculous off road adventure I decided to go to Mt Everest, then I figured I didn't was to spend thousands of dollars and weeks reaching base camp, so I flew over it instead.I then said farewell to Nepal after my 2 weeks there, and this weird doorway was the last picture I took from KathmanduI then visited the beach in Goa for the last part of my trip where I was an advocate for the new GoPro App showing the little kids what I was doing.My time in India and Nepal were amazing and eye opening to say the least.Being a part of such an awesome and cool thing like GoPro was a dream come true, I hope this will allow me to continue following my dreams and bring more wonderful and amazing opportunities.Next project is a video of my riding in Nepal, along with going to Slovakia for the International Motorcycle Film Festival, I've been invited as the featured speaker and guest where my Modern Motorcycle Diaries video of Alaska to Argentina in 500 days will be exhibited and shown. What an honor! So let the adventure and awesomeness continue!If you've benefited from this blog or just enjoyed the reading, perhaps you'd like to make a contribution to my ongoing travel expenses to create more adventures for you to enjoy!
