So make sure to come back and check it out. So lately we have been walking around and checking out this awesome city by the name of San Jose Costa Rica. The reason behind us being here for so long has been due […]

“A Two-Wheel Education: The World Beyond the Media”

Adventure Trio Leaves the Usual and Rides to South America Starting September 2014 Terry, Sandy and Jack Borden (aka The Adventure Trio) have done what many in America may call unusual. In May of 2013, they made the decision to ride their 2 BMW GS motorcycles to South America, departing in September 2014, taking a year and a half to explore a new part of the world. In December 2013, they sold their home in a beautiful suburban neighborhood in […]

Jupiter’s Travellers

Journey: Family motorcycle adventures, past, present and future, throughout the Americas and beyond. Plans: We want to show what it’s truly like to travel as a family of three on two motorcycles and share with the world. Several years back on a four week trek north and across Canada, we videoed many of our experiences … from huddling in the tent during a lightening storm to skirting buffalo in the roadway, from keeping a nine year old entertained in the […]

About Us

The fearless leader, Terry was the inspiration behind the family’s motorcycling adventures. He has been a rider since childhood, thoroughly enjoying sneaking his Yamaha YZ80 off his grandparent’s ranch by age 9 for a “quick” loop around the Sonoma Valley. He continued doing this for many years, never getting caught. He’s a sneaky one.

In September of 2005, he finally jumped back into the dual-sport motorcycling world by purchasing a 2000 BMW 1150GS. It wasn't long before the rest of the family was bitten by the motorcycle bug and joined in. His current bike, a 2014 BMW 1200 GS Adventure, is his real passion. He’s proud of it’s intimidating appearance and ability to handle all roads, on and off.

. He’s proud of his Adventure Trio and the spirit they, as a team, embody. There are so many experiences yet to be had, and he can’t wait to continue the journey.

After losing many friends and family members over the years, Sandy learned the hard way that life on this earth is far too short. Too many of us say no to the activities we find maybe a little too challenging or frightening. Why? So we can say we took the safe road to avoid hassle or maybe an injury? Then what? No memories, no stories, no life changing experiences. Boring. There's too much to explore outside your four walls, beyond the cell phone, far away from the internet.

As the writer, Sandy writes as she speaks. If you enjoy it, fabulous. Too much for you? She can't and won't apologize. If you don't like her, it's okay. Sandy has met and continues to meet some truly awesome people along her adventurous paths. And she’s taking her husband and son with her. They are the Adventure Trio. Remember, don't ask why, ask why not. Because life is truly an adventure, and she won’t let you forget it.

Not unlike any other teen boy, Jack likes to get dirty while still looking cool. He likes exploring the forestry roads of the Mt. Shasta Forest on his Honda 230, shooting his latest movie short or just hangin’ on the basketball court with friends after school. But, what does he enjoy the most? Our family adventures. With his Canon at the ready and iPhone full of music, he is pretty content as we roll through the countryside.

He’s our commentator, forever telling us all the new things he sees and smells. He’s been Terry’s pillion for over 9 years and, at times, lets the lull of the engine sing him to sleep. Jack doesn’t put up a fuss about being on the bike for days on end, as he knows that wherever we land, there’s always a new adventure waiting to be discovered. Jack’s a pretty cool guy with plenty of stories to tell an audience of all ages. I mean, really, how many kids do you know that have motorcycled through the polygamist capitol of Colorado City or stopped for a soda and a chat at Coco’s Corner?
