Ben has always loved the icon that is the Royal Enfield, first discovered during his years travelling around India. He has known, Zander, the founder of Extreme Bike tours, for many years so when the chance came to get on board it was an easy decision. Now he resides in Sri Lanka and after joining Team Extreme and adding Sri Lanka to the Extreme list of tours, he has embraced the company and full time riding in all the countries that we offer.
Souhaine was born in Sri Lanka and was instrumental in setting up the Sri Lankan tours with Extreme, bringing a lifetime of knowledge of his country and motorbike routes around which the tours have been constructed.
Having ridden around the Himalayas with his wife many years ago on Royal Enfields, his love of touring and adventure was born. As one of the owners of Extreme Bike Tours and key guides he has helped in building tours in the destinations that are offered by the company, and is always up for another adventure.
Emily was born in Canada’s wide-open spaces. With an appetite for adventure she began her guiding career on rivers as a white water rafting trip leader and jet boat tour guide. After enjoying a career in hospitality and tourism, she made Rishikesh, India her home. Since 2003, while living in the foothills of the Himalayas, she has journeyed far and wide on her Royal Enfield Machismo. Negotiating the diverse conditions of chaotic traffic, desert, altitude, armed military zones, cliff edges, mud, river crossings, snow and avalanches, she has 100 000+ dusty miles under her belt.
Emily specialises in ‘off the beaten track’ with an enthusiasm that is as infectious as her smile. She joined Team Extreme as a Lead Guide in 2010 and has been captaining trips in India, Mongolia, Nepal and Tibet. She continues to explore new routes loving every twist on the road. Join Emily on her next Extreme Tour.
