Michelle Engelbrecht
Adventure and adventure riding has always been a huge part of my life. This adventure rider was not made, but born this way! Riding is about an urge to explore the unknown. To take man and machine and to pit oneself against nature and the elements.

It is also about exploring other countries and cultures, immersing oneself in one’s surroundings. Lastly it’s about the journey, about how you got there, and the trials and tribulations along the way.

Adventure riding for me is going out into the open, exploring my surroundings, camping under the stars and living close to nature, with good friends. Sometimes it’s also about pushing my limits, using my good judgement but always respecting the machine I’m on and always trying to be humble towards nature and the people around me. But the most important thing of all is I try and have as much fun as possible!

I am proud to be a brand ambassador for Xkulcha and ATG helping them develop their products for the motorcycle industry.
