Name: Luke Ashmore | Age: 23 | Occupation: Sub contractor
FIRST BIKE: Suzuki GS XR, which I unknowingly bought as a wreck and had to take off the road CURRENT BIKE: Honda NX 650 Dominator, known as ‘The Dominator’ DREAM BIKE: BMW 1200 GS or Suzuki Worldcrosser FERRY OR TUNNEL? Ferry, because I enjoy the relaxing break after a six-hour ride to Dover! MOST EXPENSIVE MOTORCYCLE ACCESSORY EVER BOUGHT: Everything I own is second hand LIFELONG AMBITION: A job that allows me to work for six months of the year and travel the rest IDEAL TRAVEL PARTNER: Anyone who doesn’t complain MOST DANGEROUS MOMENT: Racing along Spanish twisties and coming face to face with a tractor sporting a massive hay-bale fork on the front. It was a very close call! MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: Going up a Pyrenean mountain track and sleeping in a hammock with the clouds below WHAT DO YOU MISS MOST WHEN TRAVELLING: The feeling in my bumcheeks PERSON YOU WOULD MOST LIKE TO MEET AND THE QUESTION YOU WOULD MOST LIKE TO ASK THEM: To ABR’s editor Alun Davies: ‘Can I have a job, please?’ FAVORITE CRAP JOKE: An orange is walking through the supermarket when the security guard approaches him and says, “What are you doing?”. The orange replies, “Oh, don’t mind me. I’m just looking round”. WRITE A 50-WORD PERSONAL AD FOR YOU AND YOUR BIKE AS IF YOU WERE BOTH GOING TO JOIN AN ADVENTURE BIKE RIDING DATING SITE: Man and bike, both with big thumpers, uncomplicated and can go for hours before emptying. If you don’t mind something that’s been round the block a few times you’re guaranteed a sturdy frame and a tidy rear. Looking for someone to get the revs up that wont mind being driven round the bend for years to come!
