Episode 143, in which Mark Barnes talks touring Europe with Scott Moreno of IMTbike

I don’t know about you, but I’ve often wondered about those package tours from motorcycle touring companies. Is it fun? Is it weird? What are the bikes like? How much time is spent on logistics? Where will they go?

Friend of the podcast Mark Barnes is now one of the thousands of riders who no longer has to wonder like I do. After venturing around Portugal and Spain earlier this year, he sat down with IMTbike founder/owner/operator Scott Moreno to ask about all those things and more.

You can easily find IMTbike on the web, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You can also find (and subscribe) to Mark’s podcast, The Ride Inside, which is taking on new ideas this season as Mark digs into training and other topics by interviewing experts, as well as his fascinating essays on the mental, emotional and social aspects of motorcycling. The Ride Inside with Mark Barnes is available in all major podcast apps and on the BMW Owners News website.
