MOTOTREK is a YouTube series
for adventure motorcycle travelers.
We create high-quality, entertaining, educational videos about motorcycle skills, tips and tech for traveling the world on two wheels.
MOTOTREK was conceptualized in Jan 2017 by filmmaker Tim Tyler who was sitting out a particularly glum pacific northwest winter in Olympia, WA. Tim contacted professional motorcycle instructor Bret Tkacs, soon to return from a season-long ride through western Africa, and the two agreed to collaborate and create instructional YouTube videos for adventure motorcyclists.
For three years MOTOTREK produced 80 videos including a few with guest hosts including Helge Pedersen from GlobeRiders, Iain Glynn from Touratech, world traveler rtwPaul and motorcycle travel author Sam Manicom. In 2020 when Bret Tkacs decided to move on and start his own YouTube channel, MOTOTREK welcomed Dusty Wessels, professional motorcycle instructor with West38 Moto.
