THE VISION OF MOTOMENTALS

Bart and Jessica  We   were   happier   with   so   few   stuff around   us,   even   when   being   soaked   and   freezing   in   the   tent,   than   ever   at   'home'.     

A little something about us …

Bart and Jess
When we were kids, we    dreamed    of    roaming    the    world.    Conquering    dragons    in    long    lost    countries,    being submerged   in   other   cultures,   feeling   the   rain   on   your   bare   skin   whilst   the   skies   are   filled   with roaring   thunder,   frolicking   with   the   wolves   in   the   forest,   making   a   campfire   in   the   snow,   sleep under   the   starry   skies.   These   dreams   slowly   drifted   away   when   we   were   forced   to   grow   up   and start   living   in   reality,   but   they   were   never   totally   forgotten.   We   were   led   to   believe   that   such things   weren't   possible   for   us,   only   set   aside   for   the   few   chosen   ones.   So   we   started   a   'life',   we got   jobs,   bought   a   home   and   started   a   business. But   we   never   used   our   talents   and   we satisfied   our   longing   for   the   world   by   exploring   Europe   on   our   motorcycles. 
 When   we   started doing   longer   travels,   we   noticed   a   change   in   our   behavior.   We   were   happier   with   so   few   stuff around   us,   even   when   being   soaked   and   freezing   in   the   tent,   than   ever   at   'home'.   And   we realized   that   returning   'home'   time   after   time   became   harder.   The   road   became   our   home. Home is where we lay our heads to rest. An   idea   is   the   most   resilient   virus   there   is,   it   sticks   in   the   brain   and   keeps   itching.   What   do   we want   to   do   with   our   lives?   Is   the   meaning   of   life   to   be   happy?   We   doubted   and   hesitated   for   so long until we could doubt no more. We'll ride into the open world and see what lies ahead.

JESSICA LEYNE A.K.A. JESS SJIRIKI ZEKUSN  03/09/1989  Ever since my 16th birthday, motorcycles and everything on wheels have been my one and only passion. When I competed my motorcycle riding lessons in 2007 I immediately went for the exam and aced it. At the time I got in the newspapers as ‘youngest female motorcycle rider in Belgium’. During the years to come I followed motorcycle mechanic courses and started riding on track. My first motorcycle, a Cagiva Raptor 650, clocked 125.000 km after two riding years. In 2009 I upgraded my game and bought myself a real sportsbike to get better at trackriding.    Not only did it boost my riding skills and self-esteem, my trackdays led me to love, I met my husband on a French racetrack in 2011. Not so long after that, we started traveling and we soon realised that we were bitten by the travel bug really hard. Focussing on gaining a completely new skillset in riding, I trained myself into riding offroad. Preferably with allroad motorcycles, they are just so much fun. So we get to the point in time where we are today, very long story short; ten years of riding, ridden more than half a million km, explored Europe, Japan and California, dozens of different bikes. And the best part? This is just the beginning !   Interview with Women Adventure Riders
