Eric Moffat has been travelling by motorcycle throughout Asia since his father, Patrick Moffat, first introduced him to that fine art in the early 1990s. After Patrick’s untimely passing in late 2010, Eric has continued his father’s work coordinating and leading Asian motorcycle adventures.
Patrick was the true pioneer of motorcycle touring in Asia, running the first ever tours to Mongolia, Tibet and Bhutan and developing the routes to the highest pass in the World, Khardung-La, and across Rajasthan. Eric has inherited not just that spirit but also Patrick’s empathy with the Himalayan region and he and our dedicated local crew will really bring out the best in Tibet—and the best in you.
Alam Hussein was brought into our team as a mechanic by Patrick Moffat at the age of 16, way back in 1996. Then he was the tour mechanic, and he led his first tour in 2005. He is now our main guide, and has participated in over 100 tours as rider, mechanic or guide. Alam is no mean rider either. He participated in the Himalayan Raid Rally in 2004, 2005 and 2006, and came second in his class in 2005. And when not working to make your tour the best possible experience, Alam is married and runs a motorcycle repair business and custom bike building shop in Dehradun, famous throughout India.
