• The Far-Rider Project

Far-Rider Moto Adventures tells how overland adventure motorcycling can have a profound impact on people's lives. It follows the story of the main character, Scott Parson, who transforms into a world adventurer. Far-Rider depends on the intensity of what can actually happen during adventures to provide a strong story line.

Adventure, itself, does not need a lot of fantasy or heavy stretches of reality to be interesting, moving and authentic. Thanks for your support and we hope that you'll follow along with us on our adventure.

• Carl Parker

— Creator —

As a publisher, photographer, graphic artist and writer, Carl has not only published ADVMoto Magazine in print and digital for the past 10 years, but also released the second ever solo recorded and produced adventure riding film called The Return: Riding Western China in 2007 which also features story telling illustrations. 

"Adventure has the potential to profoundly change peoples' lives through the struggles and joys of expanding horizons. It makes people more adaptable, confident, aware, considerate and grateful for the blessings they have in life. It's easy to forget the most distilled forms of happiness in the everyday hustle, and Far-Rider takes a look at this."  - Carl Parker  

• Deniz Gulmez

— Artist —

Fascinated by the 90’s era American comics and Japanese Samurai themed Manga, he collaborated as one of the artists in the Kickstarter project THE UNSPEAKABLE TEXT, and he has done many promo art and covers for musicians, books, magazines and small businesses.

"In the past, I’ve mostly worked on superhero action and flashy pinup illustrations, and now I’m excited to work on Far-Rider because it has highly relatable characters with real life struggles and they are having an amazing journey in incredible landscapes. As they discover themselves and this beautiful world we live in, I also discover myself as an artist and improve myself with every page. I want this work to be the my best one yet and I want the readers eyes have a feast during this brilliant adventure." - Deniz Gulmez

Adventurer and author Sam Manicom has been travelling pretty much since his return to the UK from Africa with his parents. He was born in the Belgian Congo where his parents worked, and lived through the two rebellions that preceded the change of this West African country's name to Zaire.

"What a fantastic project this is. The whole concept is a buzz. I love how wonderfully original the idea is, and how the planned storylines are going to make Far Rider even more unique. There are plenty of tales of the unexpected in store for readers. It’s going to be a fine combination of entertainment and inspiration. I’m absolutely impressed with the quality of the work." - Sam Manicom
