Chipmunks World Tour

The making of the Chipmunks World Tour

Doing a trip around the world has been in my head for the last 15 years if not longer

Key driver was the constant thirst to seeing the fascinating corners of the world with its stunning nature and the different cultures

Combining the hobby since childhood, which is motorbiking, and enjoying max flexibility and at the same time the feeling of homely shelter, the plan was born to travel in almost absolut independence with bike(s) and an expedition vehicle.

The concept of our Theo was first discussed 2015 with Frank, the owner of Woelcke Wohnmobile, who over the years proved as an absolutely solid “schwabian” specialist in his field.

The Theo production was formalized in 2019, but its completion was pushed back several times due to Corona where sourcing certain parts from suppliers were challenging. But Frank and his team did a marvelous job with work arounds and their commitment to top quality delivery. A thanks to him and team, in particular Peter and Sonja.

On the bikes and the selection of which brand / model to take for the long trip through all sorts of terrain, it was for a long time between the BMW GS or the Honda Africa Twin. However, after one of his convincing sales talks from my friend Moh’d Latifi (Head of Sales AGMC Dubai) I couldn’t help but sign for Alvyn and Simon, two GS 1250 Adventures. By now they are fully geared up including a morning session from me with the mechanics…

Another big thanks to the Albatha Group / BMW with Jan Felton, Moh’d, Muntasser, Ravi and the remaining team in the workshop…
