welcome to the noisy way round collection by skinhead productions. noisywayround.com is dedicated to motorcycle touring, and was established in 2006, after jamie saw too much long way round, took his test, bought a suzuki bandit, and rode to the south of france to surprise his mother. since then, he has ridden an africa twin, a ktm duke II, a bmw r1200gs, a harley fat boy, a little van van, and a buell ulysses xb12x across most of europe, new zealand, and california. below, you will find our twitter feed if you want to keep up with the latest motorcycle bumble somewhere stupid, like the pyrenees in winter, along with a few videos courtesy of kyte-clan.com from some of our trips to date. you will also find links to each of the trips taken so far, and details of any planned for the future. feel free to view other trip videos from the youtube link at the top of the page, drop us an email, or simply follow us on twitter

riding in aid of riders for health training African health workers to ride/drive and maintain motorcycle and four wheel vehicles, and unicef. the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights in more than 190 countries. UNICEF delivers health care, nutrition, education and protection to children in urgent need. UNICEF relies entirely on voluntary donations from individuals, governments, institutions and corporations, and is not funded by the UN
...another trip coming soon (may 2012), destination is the brecon beacons national park and black mountains of sunny wales. again teamed with alan from kyte-clan.com. both have new larger tents this time, to accomodate for the no doubt "challenging" weather!




2011 brings another little adventure, over to bruges in belgium. and in the wise words of colin farrell "Prison, death, it didn't matter. Because at least in prison and at least in death, you know, I wouldn't be in f**king Bruges." perhaps we'd have more fun than he did... riding 2-up with my better half, joanna, who is also charged with cameraman duties...

2010's winter trip. 2 men journey on 2 wheels in november to 2 foot of snow in the pyrenees. they said we were crazy. they were right! it was alans idea!






2010's trip to france, italy, and switzerland, taking in the stelvio pass, the san bernardino pass, the tonale pass, to name but a few, as well as lake como, french national parks, places new, and places familiar. the first riding with alan from kyte-clan.com

2009's return to segovia in spain, this time for pleasure, not business. after 6 return trips to teach out there, 7am-9pm, it didn't leave much time to play. this trip would allow me to explore a beautiful city, and have another bike bumble in the process






2008's solo european trip, some 4200miles in 12 days taking in a few countries: france, switzerland, italy, austria, germany, czech rep., poland, and belgium. a humbling experience, travelling on your own...

wellington to auckland on an R1200GS BMW in 2008. this time supported by the olds, who were travelling with me, and showing me all the new zealand has to offer


1800 miles around california with my old man, on 2 harley fatboy's from san francisco, down route 1 through monterey bay, carmel, morro bay to santa monica pier in LA, and back up to san francisco by way of death valley and yosemite national park, in 2007. a big thanks to eaglerider SF for providing some lovely bikes, and an apology for the state they were in when we returned them


the slow way down. a ride from london to chazelles, in the charente region of south western france, in 2006. the first of many road trips on 2 wheels
