Caught up with Nathan Martin
who tackled Finke on a BMW 1200 adventure bike!
It wasn’t the plan but that's how it panned out.
He had to tackle a few hurdles in his prep:
Going from office work to driving a truck and being on the road for up to 2 weeks
Getting bogged in sand dunes and having a big off on day 1
Not making the time cap
Having a partner and twin girls to look after
Not having a consistent time and work schedule while driving
Has the whole family eating well and 11 year old making meals
Finished Finke in 6.5hrs when most people would have quit
Improved his whole lifestyle, not just riding
Great work Nathan, has been awesome to see how far you have come and be able to tackle Finke on a 250kg bike!
