Brett Bartick is an avid motorcyclist that enjoys the outdoors and adventure travel. He's mountain biked in the Golden Triangle, camped among the elephants in Botswana, Rafted the Futaleufu, Hiked to Machu Picchu and traveled all over the contiguous US via motorcycle. A long time member of both the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) and the Harley Owners Group (HOG), he likes to combine backpacking ideas and principles into his motorcycle travels.
