My name is Christian Werthmann and I am part of the Bikesonroad team.
As a well-preserved guy in his late fifties I can look back on quite a few years of experience on a motorcycle. Growing up in Wuppertal, my job as an engineer in the automobile industry took me and my family to many places in Germany and abroad. The last years of my professional life we are spending near a town called Görlitz, situated in the region of Lusatia. It is so beautiful here that we have decided to settle here.
My path to my passion of motorbiking is probably the classic one: first moped at the age of 15, saving money for a motorbike license, invest the first-earned money in a Vespa Roller, gradually replacing it by bigger bikes. At the age of 20 I went on my first big tour – Morocco on a 200cc. That was all the way back in the 70’s! An overwhelming and amazing experience! Africa, sleeping under the stars, and culture pure!
After Morocco tours through North America, Southern Africa and countless trips in Europe followed.
Now I am looking forward to going on trips with like-minded enthusiasts, meeting interesting people, discover new things and all that in the best way possible – on a motorbike!
See you soon!
