Top notch podcast
I’ve been listening to the show since the beginning and always look forward to new episodes every week. Jim is amazing at interviewing guests and his wife Elizabeth does amazing job of producing/editing. It breaks my heart to see someone here gave a 2 star rating!
Hello Jim I found your podcast a few months ago. And I love it I listen to every episode now. And I wanted to say thank you for the rider skills segment especially. I am pretty new to the adv riding and I use the tips from your podcast every time I go out riding. So thank you again Jim and I look forward to more shows.
IMS Foot pegs
Jim I ordered a new set of ims pegs for a 2022 ktm 1290 super adv the representatives at ims ask if i would take some pictures of my existing factory pegs for comparison to help with R and D and they would discount the new ones …nice!! So after sending several pictures the ADV1’s were selected during the back and forth emails I was asked how I heard about them well of course I said ARR the best podcast on adventure riding there is!!! And to my surprise when i got my invoice on the pegs there was another 5% off for being a ARR listener….Sweet!! Thank you love the show. Tim Covington North Carolina
Simply The Best!
Jim & Elizabeth have put together simply the best Adventure Rider show imaginable. I appreciate the variety of topics, episodes, and guests. The show is deeply informative with its Rider Skills episodes as well a entertaining and riveting with the stories and interviews of travels from all over the globe. The technical quality is fantastic and consistent. It’s by far one of the best produced and widely informative I have found yet. Keep up the terrific work!
Jim is a real pro
Hi Jim, Not sure what your background is but man you sure are a wonderful podcast host. I look forward to each new episode. Relevant, interesting, professional while maintaining warmth and connection with your guests. Thanks for a great show !!!
Learning so much from this podcast - great topics
One of my favorite podcasts. Learn so much each time presented in a positive unbiased and informative way. Keep up the good work.

One of my favorite podcasts!
Excellent podcast with a great host Jim Martin who has clever questions and funny comebacks. The show has a variety of different guests all with fascinating stories and great advice and knowledge.
Coast to Coast on a Sewing Machine
Maybe YOU are eventually going electric but I’ll be the last American to do so. Will make my own engine if I have to and distill my own fuel. Electric motorcycles just aren’t, by definition, motorcycles. Charlie and Ewan showed us that.
Always Anticipated, Highly Entertaining Top Pick
If you love motorcycles or simply love to explore, this podcast is for you. The guestsJim has on are top notch pools of information and entertainment. I look forward to the notice that it is available every week!
Fantastic motorcycle podcast
I absolutely love listening to Jim's podcast when I'm driving in the car or working on my bikes. He provides excellent information on products and riding techniques mixed with some awesome real life stories. Thanks to Jim and the crew that puts this on - I'm always looking forward to the next episode.
Required listening for new ADV riders
Great resource for new ADV riders to build skills and for experienced riders to be inspired to The Next Big Adventure.
Just the best..,
Jim & his guests offer stellar listening for riders in search of thoughtful tales, techniques and inspiration. I never fail to listen until the last fading shift as the “every rider” heard riding into the distance purrs away on his (unnamed) BMW. Marvelous.
Great ADV podcast
Adventure Motorcycle Industry Leader in Podcasts
I find the Adventure Rider Radio and Adventure Rider Radio RAW podcasts the most entertaining, useful, professional, and the shows that I most look forward to listening to each week/month. Jim also has a great manner about the way that he interviews his guests. Outstanding job, thank you for your selfless service to the motorcycle and travel communities and please keep them coming!
Must listen if you like motorcycles and travel
Great show with an excellent combination of episodes that cover topics covering stories from the road, industry experts, rider skills and more. The show is fresh and interesting every week and really makes you just want to get out on the road (or trail) and explore
Jim is hands down one of the best interviewers out there. Just as a guest think they have taken the evasive way out of a question Jim will press for the details. This makes for truly great episodes!
Perfect ADV podcast
I listen to this podcast religiously. If you're into ADVing, look no further. Anybody who's anybody in the industry respects and/or has been on Jim's show.
The only thing I don’t like about this show is that it makes it even tougher to go to work on Monday instead of hitting the road. Jim is a patient interviewer who ask terrific questions...really fun to listen to him open up stories his guests sometimes didn’t even know were there.
Simply the best Motorcycle podcast.
Jim is a good interviewer. His guests are The Who’s who of the motorcycle world. If you love travel, adventure and motorcycles this podcast is for you.
Excellent interview. I always look forward to each podcast and this interview about the Ural Moto ventures was just as riveting as many of your others.We’re hoping to find an English version of the movie to get the visual of it all.

Simply the Best, Better than all the rest.
These Martin’s put together an intriguing show with guest content that draws the listeners into the adventure stories and audible explanation of technical riding skills to promote safe practice and improve rider performance. Sponsors can’t find a better motorcycle podcast to showcase their wares. Excellent job Jim and Elizabeth, very well done.
I discovered ARR just a couple months ago, and now I listen to it everyday - while walking the dog, going for a run, driving etc. The dscussion topics are highly relevant to my riding, the guest speakers are very knowledgeable, and Jim Martin is the perfect host/moderator. All adventure riders (young/old, newbies/exerienced, male/female, in the U.S. or anywhere in the world) will enjoy ARR podcasts. And let's all support this amazing source of information/pleasurable listening by contributing $$ directly, or indirectly by supporting the sponsors. I did it, and will do more.
Adventure Rider Radio is the best
If I only had to listen to one motorcycle podcast this would be it! Always informed topics that make you want to ride.
This podcast is quality. It could be a radio production, but thankfully it isn’t as there would be 5 minutes of commercials for each 3 minutes of content. And, while I get the add free version, occasionally I listen for the adds. The products that endorse the show are solid and work well. The content is really the heart of it. Rider tips that even experienced riders can use as a reminder. Discussions with people who’ve “been there, done that” which can help avoid hardship. I would like to see some rider tips on trip planning and packing; maybe some YouTube content....
ARR is the best
I’ve been a listener for years basically from the beginning. Undoubtably the best producer, interviewer and best guests in the motorcycle world. I listen to many motorcycle and adventure style podcasts and what I appreciate the most is how clean this show is. I can listen to this show with my kids and wife. Jim always has the best most relevant motorcycle content and steers towards political neutrality, and clean programming. Other shows are so full of garbage it’s almost difficult to wade through it all to find the content. ARR is truly a high quality program In every way. I Look forward to every Thursday. Thank you guys so much for giving me an enjoyable hour every week! It has become a staple in my life!
One of the best ADV podcasts out there!
Jim has some of the best guests, best topics, and best responses of any ADV related podcast I listen to. I’m a local rider, getting away maybe a week at a time to go do BDR routes nearby and while much of the content seemingly relates to RTW styled riders, so much also translates to the riding I do. Thank you Jim!
This is a great show and has a lot of really good information for new adventure riders and those wanting to learn different techniques.
On 2 Wheels
I’ve been listening for about a year now and figure I better rate this podcast. Excellent interviews and information. The host has great delivery and a good quality setup. There are a lot of episodes too, I recommend going back and listening to them all.
Very engaging. Great guest. Great Questions by host. Letting the guest tell their stories!!! If you are into travel and motorcycles, this podcast is for you. CHAPEAU!!!
Great content and awesome production
I can't wait for each new episode of this podcast. The topics, conversation, and guests are always top-notch, and the quality of the production is way above the norm in the podcasting world. Guests are almost never on the phone with the resulting crap audio, rather use reasonable audio gear with great quality no matter where they're connecting in from. It's also 100% family rated, both in content and language. Nice work!
This is a great ADV focused podcast for those who enjoy day trips, multi-day rides and beyond.
I found the show intelligent. Enjoyed it.
Too many ads
Full host, boring conversation, feels like a 2 hr long advert.
I have been searching for a moto podcast. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I am a new fan! Thank you so much for continuing to do this work.
My favorite podcast!!
I love to listen to all the moto related interviews, Jim always asks great questions and has super interesting guests. I really like the rider skills segments! Top notch! Cheers from Montana!! Keep up the good work.
A top Choice!
I love motorcycles and I want to get into traveling on one. Adventure Motorcycle Radio is a premium podcast with great real life stories told by the adventurers visiting the show. There are also great motorcycle and travel tips. This is a show that is so good I signed up on Patreon to support their fantastic work. Check it out!

Motorcycle Travel Experiences and Skills
I’ve been listening for a little over a year, and ARR has taken me places I will probably never go, to experience things I’ll never get to experience. I absolutely love hearing the experiences of various travelers in almost real time, as he interviews people while they are traveling. Jim Martin is one of the best interviewers I have ever heard because he asks the questions most people would never dare to ask. He also keeps the interview light on technical jargon, asking the guests to break things down in orderly, understandable bites. This is a high quality, professionally produced podcast, with an amazingly good selection of bumper music (to match the content that week) and excellent guests. If you ride a motorcycle and are looking for something more than just another podcast about how to buy another bike or buy more stuff for your bike, this is for you. This podcast is about 60% interview with travelers, 30% riding skills, and less than 10% about “stuff.” When he does a segment on “stuff” it is usually very informative, has an interview with the manufacturer, and includes first hand experience with the use of the product. For example he did a couple of segments on Satellite communication/tracking devices that included an interview with GEOS, the global call center that facilitates your rescue if you use the service. Those episodes were easily worth the (free) admission charge for the ride. The whole show is light on advertising with about 3 minutes of advertising broken into 3 segments near the beginning, middle, and end of the show. The podcast is mostly funded through donations.
Simply the best
Interviews in depth with people who do amazing things in adventure travel and with those who just travel for its own sake. Information on places, products and techniques that any.rider can use.
57years in the saddle
June 2020 | Discovered this podcast while looking for interviews with Ted Simon. Listened to a few episodes and love it. The clarity of discussions, the range of topics, and the variety of interviewees are excellent. Well done!
Exceptional content and interviews
Although I ride a road bike and don’t ride an adventure bike off road, the content is interesting and pertinent for anyone who likes to ride motorcycles. Jim is an excellent interviewer who does an excellent job with his guests, the discussions seem almost like two friends talking and interacting. A good mix of travel tips, biographies, travel stories and rider skills/training. I feel like I always walk away from each episode with some new knowledge. It also makes me more and more tempted to get an adventure bike and try some off road riding. Thanks Jim, and Elizabeth, keep up the good work!
The best Adventure riding content over the air.
Jim and Elizabeth have assembled world class interviews that are so valuable and entertaining. This podcast and RAW have such amazing stories about adventures all over the globe. The Rider Training is top notch… I look forward to taking my first rider training this summer, virus willing. I’ve been riding for almost 50 years and have learned so much from your show. Thank you Jim, Elizabeth and all your guest.
Clearly One of the Best
I’ve been listening since the beginning and have gotten a tremendous amount of benefit—as well as joy & entertainment from Jim and Elizabeth Martin’s Adventure Rider Radio podcast. I’ve supported the show a couple of times—and this reminds me, it’s time again to provide support. Regular listeners please make time to go to the ARR website and support this outstanding podcast. Mike Margas
Best Motorcycle podcast bar none
I listen to many motorcycle podcasts and this is hands down the best. Jim does a fabulous job putting together the ideal subjects and he is an absolutely fabulous interviewer. The content is always spot on just what I need. I do a great deal of motorcycle travel and Jim’s advise has saved me many times. Enjoy
Have to agree with all the reviews. This podcast is outstanding.
Informative and entertaining!
A combination of adventure riding travel stories mixed with practical information on gear, motorcycle models and even maintenance. Never boring and always inspirational.
Interesting and Informative
By far my favorite podcast. I've learned a ton about motorcycle travel specifics and travel in general. The show is a great outlet and resource for learning about riding technique and events in the adventure world. I've even recommended the show to friends and family who have no interest in motorcycles, but do like to travel. The show is inspiring and a great listen when I'm stuck at work and dreaming about being on the road.

Absolutely love this podcast. The interviews are wonderful, the rider skills segments are informative, and it has really inspired me to work on my off-road skills, hopefully including some professional instruction this year. Can’t say enough good about this podcast!
Rode my first ADV Bike last week
Found this podcast a few months ago. Don’t know why I didn’t hear of it sooner. I have been riding a Honda Shadow 750 for about 10 years. Mostly day trips. Lots of Tail Of The Dragon trips. Never even considered any other brand or style. But after listening to about the first 15 episodes of ARR I asked a good buddy if I could ride his 750GS and now I am so hooked. Just looking for the right bike for me now and planning on attending Overland Expo East in 2020. Absolutely LOVE this podcast. Well done Jim!
Not what I expected.
I was skeptical and almost reluctant to listen to this podcast. I didn’t think it could offer me anything since I’m not an “Adventure Rider”. I ride a cruiser, usually to and from work, but on the weekends I usually ride through old Santa Fe, New Mexico and its surrounding cities. I do plan to travel home, Boston, from Santa Fe in the future. To my surprise this podcast is not what I expected. Each episode has a wealth of knowledge to offer. I have become a fan of this podcast and have started from the beginning. I look forward to catching up someday. Thank you.
Jim is very professional and a great interviewer. He has guests who are famous among motorcycle travelers and skills segments from top American and Canadian instructors. Occasionally he even has something a bit off beat. Not the drivel you get from some other m/c podcasts. This is good.
