Meet Greg and Melanie Turp

Having ridden motorcycles most of his life, and after a lengthy career in health care, Greg Turp and partner Melanie, who was an estate agent, decided to sell everything they had and ride as much of the world as possible. Several life changing events led to a desire to see the world and it’s people as they really are. A plan was hatched and seven years ago, while still maintaining a relationship with family, they started out on a new adventure.

To date they have ridden in over 50 countries. They have also travelled extensively through North and Central America with their dog Gypsy.

Greg and Melanie will be presenting about their time spent riding around the south island of New Zealand and they’ll be book-signing “Two Up with a Pup” the story of a TransAm trip with a difference.
