Bridget

We are Bridget Hallam and Alan Cox from Throw Your Leg Over. We are motorcycle adventurers from Australia. Together, we have ridden two-up in excess of 130,000 km in Australia and Europe on our 2008 BMW R1200GS named Beauty. In 2019 we shipped Beauty from Sydney to Barcelona and rode 27,000 km over 24 weeks through 26 countries, from Morocco to Norway and from Portugal to the Black Sea, crisscrossing many amazing countries in between. We are currently on our second European tour, this time shipping Beauty from Melbourne to London. We started at the popular Adventure Bike Rider Festival and then rode east through the French, Swiss and Italian Alps and into eastern Europe. We share our passion of exploring on two wheels via our monthly Membership and motorcycle guide books for your self-guided adventures.
