Meet Ian Coates

“Ian Coates is remarkable for many reasons, not least his incredible story-telling. Life on the road has been good to this mild-mannered mechanic from Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire, who seems to let serendipity create remarkable situations.”

During his 14-year journey around the world on a 1991 Honda Africa Twin, Ian clocked up nearly a quarter of a million miles and visited just about everywhere there is to visit.

Ian will be returning to the Overland Event again this year to share more of his stories, and his Honda will be on display in the Bike Show.
