About Evan Fell
Hi. I’m Evan. I’m a motorcyclist and a motorcycle rider. I work on bikes and ride every day. I ran a motorcycle restoration and customization business for many years in New York and Boston. Now I own a motorcycle tour and rental company in Guatemala. Motorcycles always have been, and continue to be, my passion.
My primary area of expertise is vintage Japanese motorcycles, in particular bikes from the late 1960’s to mid 80’s. I also have years of experience owning, wrenching, and riding BMW airhead bikes, Honda XR series bikes, and late model KTM and MX bikes.
I have traveled around 200,000 miles around North America by motorcycle over the last ten years. I am a member of the Iron Butt club and have completed several of their distance ride challenges.The photo above is from a police station in Mexico in 2011 where I rested a night to avoid sleeping on the roadside.
I also race Enduro and compete in the Guatemala National Enduro series in the Expert class. Normally I race a KTM 250, but the shot above is on my XR600 – I was on the largest displacement, oldest, and heaviest bike at the entire event – but I managed a top 10 finish (9th).
Sometimes when I look at the map, I feel I’ve hardly ridden anywhere. I ride a motorcycle every day, but most of the time I’m in town running errands, or on one of our existing tour routes. Eventually I will have the entire globe filled like the map above.
This is my site. These are my bikes. Cheers.
