Off the wall: Motorcycling around the world

Not normally our thing, but holy crap this is just awesome. This map is the approximate journey of [Makiko Sugino] – so far. She’s been riding a Yamaha 250 all over the world, and she’s still going. Check out this thread for some awesome pics and details.


  1. Wow, that must be very annoying after the first couple of months…

    What does she have against Canada? Do you think she believes the snow will slow her down? lol.

    Aha… check out this guy, he WALKS around the world. I met him in Uruguay, and he already was though the 50 States, India, China, Southern Asia, etc.
    Cheers from Germany,

    She’s in Canada now. The map is at least a month old. She went from California to Florida to Maine, and is now on her way to Alaska through Canada before finishing in California and flying home.

    Wow, I’m extra impressed. I rode across Minnesota on a Yamaha 400 about 25 years ago and my butt is still numb from the vibrations! ;-)

  9. bagster says:

    I think it is a yamaha xt225, not a 250

  10. JD says:

    It is a Brazilian Yamaha XT250, which is actually an XT225….
