Welcome Fellow Rider!

At LowlandsADV I want to create a resource for stories and tips that covers many aspects of adventure riding: riding skills, travel, gear, bike maintenance, etc. Through weekly articles, I tackle subjects from the playful and serious to the practical and fun. All with the goal to help others enjoy their two-wheeled adventures even more so you can go further, faster, safer.

I believe that a motorcycle adventure can be done on any bike and any budget. No need to be a Dakar Legend or Hard Enduro champion to have a lot of fun in sand and mud.

But you do need a bike, some gear and some skills. And by sharing what I learn about this passion of mine, I want to inspire others to find their own way to an awesome two-wheeled adventure. Wether it is a weekend away or a trip around the world.

About Me

Showing a thumbs up from me on an empty forrest parking area where I practice regularly

I have enjoyed riding motorcycles for over 2 decades now, but I really discovered my passion obsession when I first steered my 650 V-Strom onto a sandy track in 2011 the day after I bought my first “adventure bike”. A week later, I was riding it through Scotland accompanied by a 650GS and an Africa Twin. I had zero experience in riding anything other than paved roads, so I dropped the bike about a dozen times in the first week of having it. That sparked this almost unhealthy obsession with this way of riding bikes. Since then, I have thoroughly enjoyed learning and failing my way through more motorcycle adventures, big and small.

I have enjoyed riding many different motorcycles for more than 20 years now; Crotch Rockets on a track, A Harley down California’s Highway 1, a trial bike through a forest in Sweden or moto-camping from Holland to Russia (and back).

My name is Arno Jansen. I currently live in the Netherlands with my family where I thoroughly enjoy my #mudlifecrisis on my ’08 KTM 690 Enduro in adventure trim.
