Resting scooter enthusiast Jurgen van de Ven, who has driven a number of bikes and scooters for around a decade, is set to take a new journey.
The 26-year-old Dutchman plans to make a trip from his home country to Thailand in August.
He’s not the first motorcyclist to try and set foot on the Thai border but he’s set to be the first foreigner to do so.
“The only thing I’m missing is a bike, and that’s my biggest need,” van de Veen told Sport-Express.
“If I want to be adventurous, I can’t miss out on this opportunity.”
Veen, who plans to go to Thailand from his Dutch home of Rotterdam, has been a cyclist since he was a teenager and he has since gone on to become a successful businessman.
“In the last 10 years I’ve been travelling around the world and I think I’ve achieved a lot,” he told Sport Express.
“It’s the best country to travel around in the world.
It’s the safest, the cleanest, and the most beautiful.”
Van de Ven has already visited several other countries, including the United States, the UK, and Belgium.
He was recently able to spend time in the United Arab Emirates and will return to the Netherlands this August.
Van de Vese’s plans are to use his experience to help his countrymen, and he hopes that his bike-touring skills will inspire other foreign motorcyclists to try their luck.
“I want to give people the opportunity to get out and enjoy the sights and smells of Thailand,” he said.
“My dream is to go there and see what I’ve seen and do a little cycling myself, but in the end I want everyone to enjoy Thailand.”
