Description

Join us for an extended TED Talk of adventure motorcycle touring with special guest Lyndon Poskitt—the creator of “Races to Places” and a 3-time Dakar Rally finisher

We’re so excited for this presentation that we’re doing it twice—first on Thursday, March 28, followed by a repeat presentation on Saturday, March 30.

Later this month Lyndon is flying straight from Nairobi, Kenya, to New York City, and will be treating us to a live after-hours presentation here at the store. Each presentation will consist of two ~1+ hour blocks—one dedicated to Races to Places, and one on the Dakar Rally. In between we will have a short intermission for leg-stretching and refreshments.

The talk will be followed by a short Q&A session and a chance to grab a commemorative signed Motorex hat, or special event t-shirt.

The price of admission includes automatic entry to win one of several door prizes.

*Due to space restrictions no tickets will be available for purchase at the event. Please reserve your seat now!

> Doors open at 6:30
> Presentation starts at 7:00
> Beverages and light fare are included.
> Space is limited - please RSVP!

About Lyndon Poskitt: A lifelong motorcyclists and racer, Lyndon left his job as an aerospace engineer in 2014 to chase the dream of riding "Basil Bike," his purpose-built KTM 690 Rally Factory Replica, clear around the world.

And over the last several years he’s done just that—riding and racing multi-day Rally races on seven continents, and copiously documenting his travels for others to enjoy. He's currently in the midst of releasing season 11 of his “Races to Places” show on youtube via Patreon, the crowd-funding platform that helps keep this privateer on the road. In 2017 Poskit competed in the gruelling solo-class of the Dakar rally, producing this excellent 1-hour documentary.

The following year he returned and produced daily 10-minute segments, offering thousands of fans a true insider's look at one of the hardest races in the world.
