I’ve always been lucky enough to have jobs that were unique. When I was younger, I worked at a bakery as a cookie decorator. That was fun! After graduating from Salem College with a degree in Communication Studies, I got to travel all around the country working for a business that made software for carpet […]

When anyone asks what I do for a living, my answer is always the same: I make things pretty. I have a passion for design and have made a living making things beautiful. I’ve worked in a variety of fields, but I always seem to find my way back to publication design.

I was born in East Germany, in 1976. Although I grew up under the oppression of Communism, I was fortunate for the non-conformist influence of a couple from a nearby village who inspired me to challenge my world and think for myself. At 13, the fall of the Berlin Wall spared me much trouble, allowing […]

I’ve been hooked on two wheels and a motor since I first threw a leg over a minibike sometime around 1970. Since then, I’ve owned around thirty bikes, ranging from a 100cc dirt bike to a 1200cc V-Max.

In May 2003, Lisa and I left our jobs, sold everything and on two BMW motorcycles set off to see the world. The plan seemed simple enough – ride, eat, sleep and repeat until we had our fill of the 122 countries and 7 continents the planet has on offer.

I grew up in East Germany, where almost every boy in our small town got his bike license at the age of 15. Cars really weren’t an option, as they literally took years to arrive after ordering. Bikes, though, were affordable and easy to come by.

When I was in kindergarten, dad borrowed a little Honda 90 from a friend and took me for a ride through the hills around our home in Elkins, West Virginia. From that day on, two-wheel doodles augmented my schoolwork, Evel Knievel toys abounded, and the Schwinn Stingray became an impromptu motocrosser.

You know that little boy who stares at you, mouth agape, as you ride by? That was me, John Flores, thirty-plus years ago. There was something about two-wheeled travel that always fascinated me, and for years I channeled that fascination into bicycling.

I was always fascinated by self-propelled vehicles of all sorts, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, power boats, and even trains. After several years of begging, when I was nine my father finally gave in and let me drive his car. I had learned how to clutch and shift by watching drivers and knew how to […]

Although I was only 13 when my family moved from Austria to the States and started RoadRUNNER, it was only a matter of time before I’d be in the saddle as well. At the age of 14, I finally convinced my parents I could ride. A 3-day riding course in Austria, and many motorcycle weekends […]

The three great passions in my life, besides my wonderful family, are motorcycle touring, writing, and photography. Riding a used 1963 Honda Dream at age 17, I never dreamed that many years hence, all three passions would coalesce into an actual job.

I’m originally from Austria, where I grew up skiing the great Alps. Once old enough, I quickly discovered the pleasure of riding motorcycles through mountain regions and touring the endless pass roads of the Alps and Dolomites. Along with friends, I toured and explored Europe extensively on two wheels.
