DISCOVER THE WORLD

ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE

Our employees and associates have never met each other and probably never will. Most of us live in Europe, but there are also Kyrgyz, Argentineans, Chileans, Indians, Mongols, Canadians and Americans. The members of Advfactory family speak different languages and come from different cultures. They are doctors, scuba divers, blacksmiths, journalists, musicians, ski instructors, and Andrez is a professional clown. We all, however, have one thing in common – we love to travel. This project would not have been possible without true passion. Advfactory.com is more than just a business – it’s our way of life.

PHILOSOPHY

The name Advfactory is a combination of two words: adventure and factory. It came naturally, as we have always been passionate about creating experiences. We believe adventure starts the moment you hit off-road and we always try to go off the beaten track. We have been traveling for so many years, we have become wanderers – always curious, always exploring.

This attitude drove us to visit six out of seven continents. It also allowed Advfactory to offer trips to the most stunning places in the world; Pangong Tso, Bartangu Valley, Song Kul, Salar de Uyuni. Even the names are a promise of something unusual and unforgettable. In our quest to organise trips as best as we can, we never take you to places we had not visited and checked before. The destinations are the result of our careful choices. We reject what is less attractive to show you what we consider to be the BEST …

The expeditions we offer are unique and require detailed preparation, years of experience and knowledge of the terrain – it’s rather unlikely you’d reach these places on your own. When traveling with us, you will not be an ordinary tourist bypassed by a route tour bus somewhere on the road. Our goal is to let you encounter the authentic culture and history of the country we visit. You will sleep in yurts, try real Argentinian steaks, drink Himalayan masala tea and taste kumis. To ensure the real experience all our trips are accompanied by local associates.

We also want to make sure an emergency such as vehicle failure or an injury does not spoil the trip for rest of the participants. Therefore, a support car is always there to guarantee maximum comfort and safety.

As most of our routes lead through high mountains: Himalayas, Andes, Pamir, Tien Shan, Hindukush, every trip is planned in the tiniest detail, so as to provide the best possible service in those demanding conditions. The weather is always a very unpredictable yet crucial factor when travelling, so we are prepared for different scenarios and know alternative routes.

Years of experience have taught us not to fight nature but to adapt to it. Just accept what the road gives you. We know that is how the most unforgetable adventures happen.

OUR TEAM

Mechanical Engineer, he works for General Motors, in Turin.

Until he was 35, he had never ridden a motorbike, then, for love (Lisa) he climbed up on the 2 wheels and now he is not able to get down…even if he still has a lot to learn.

He travelled by motorbike to Europe, Central Asia, USA and Morocco.

A living GPS: instead of the most sophisticated navigators, it prefers to use road maps.

He has been living in Italy for more than 20 years and he speaks fluently Italian, English and Polish.

Krzysztof is our contact for Italian customers.

Young and bold. With a head full of dreams and a heart and stamina that can make them come true. His passion for life and new adventures is contagious. A man of many talents –  photographer, writer, filmmaker. You name it – he’ll claim it. Szymon is a guy who likes things big. If he needs to cool down – he dives in icy winter waters, if he wants a holiday – he’ll take his motorbike and ride all the way from Poland to Australia on his own. In Advfactory Szymon is a guide, and being very experienced in logistics, he is also responsible for our transports in Europe.

Max Zaitsev

Canadian Connection

Max represents our interests in Canada. His main responsibility is dealing with transport to and from North America as well as organising our events departing from Vancouver. Whether you’re after exploring the Alaskan wilderness, or going across the continent to see the sunny California – Max is the guy to turn to. Born in the Ukraine, he willingly embraced the American way of life (as presented in the photo). And although he rides a KLR, we’re hoping to see him get on a BMW GS any day now.

Steve Alldridge

Kangaroo


Steve is a man from the Land Down Under who learned to ride off-road. No wonder that having travelled thousands of kilometres this way, he’s not very keen on asphalt. A skilled mechanic, great motorcyclist and a very responsible guide. He doesn’t smoke or drink – he’s only addiction is travelling. As a true addict he doesn’t know when (or in this case where) to stop, so he’s been on every continent of our planet. At our company he is the one who makes sure that at the end of the day all motorbikes reach the destination in one piece. A magician of mechanical improvisation. A modest guy, who knows everything better anyway.

Boss of german branch Motorbike Guide

Theo by birth German, spent the last 20 years living in New Zealand. As a true wandering spirit he visited over 40 countries and learned to speak several languages. If he’s not on his motorcycle, you’ll probably see him behind the wheel of his Land Cruiser, sailing a boat or flying something in the air. Theo is an experienced guide with great people skills. He is responsible for the German and New Zealand market.

Krzysztof Samborski

The Boss

Journalist, motorcyclist, traveller. In 1993, he visited Central Asia for the first time, fell head over heels in love with it, and hasn’t left ever since. He worked for newspapers, radio, internet portals and even for television, but always felt out of place. When he organised his first motorcycle trip in 2006 he immediately knew that was it. And although he feels better in a yurt than in an air-conditioned room, he insists, that he is a stay-at-home guy at heart.

David Hall

The Iron Man

This is our English connection. Responsible for all the English errors on our website. He knows Morocco, the Himalayas and the British Isles like the back of his hand. Works with horseshoes every day, so definitely a lucky guy… At our company he is responsible for the British market and the rest of the Commonwealth.

Paweł Rubach

The Impossible Cases Ninja

Lecturer at the Warsaw School of Economics. Fluent in several languages (although claims Java is his mother tongue). A frequent visitor to Peru. An enthusiast of 4 × 4 expeditions, with extensive field experience. Has been through some hard times on two wheels as well. Recently in Iceland. An active scout instructor.

Jakub Patynek

The Web Master

An environmental engineer by education, a tyre designer at Bridgestone by profession and an owner of a company dealing with internet marketing. Loves diving in caves and wrecks, travelling on a motorbike (on a good old gravel road!) and snowboarding. So far he’s been to the Balkans and the Baltic countries, but believes grand adventures await. His future plans include Nepal, Mongolia and Lake Baikal. IT mastermind, responsible for the Advfactory website.

Vadim Kazantsev

Motorbike Guide

Vadim lives in Kyrgyzstan. He’s a man of many talents. Ski and snowboard instructor in the winter, keen motorcyclist as soon as the ice thaws. He’s an amateur musician who loves a good climb in the Tien Shan Mountains. On the top of that, he’s a skilled self-taught mechanic. As most Russians living far away from home he sometimes misses the Soviet Union, although admits he was too young to remember a thing. Vadim speaks Russian and English. In our company, he deals with motorcycle trips to Kyrgyzstan and ski activities.

Mikołaj Samborski

The Hand of the King

Not a typical member of Advfactory team. Doesn’t ride a motorbike and during holidays prefers to wander around new cities on foot. Passionate about music and sound. On weekdays he deals with production of music and TV broadcasts, at the weekends, as DJ Miki, controls the heartbeats of the crowd. Watch him sway and move the knobs of the potentiometer and the rhythm IS going to get you!

Marcin Morawski

Motorbike Guide

Fled from a corporation, now trying to tame our office. A traveler, survival enthusiast, journalist. Born a highlander. Keen on all forms of travelling off the beaten track. Steers clear of paved roads. He’s an unstoppable motorcyclist and quad rider, active canoeist – preferably in the winter, who’s also passionate about mountain biking and freeriding. At the company Marcin is responsible for Mongolian adventures and the RTW project.

Ewa Dryła

Frontwoman

A linguist by education, a language teacher by profession, a flamenco dancer by choice, a chatterbox by nature. As if Polish was not enough, she speaks fluent English, German and Spanish. She travelled the Balkans on a motorcycle. Knows how to pack half a woman’s wardrobe into a container of the size of an average handbag. A fan of speedway and Superenduro. A walking dictionary, responsible for contact with customers, translations and documentation related to the transport of motorcycles.

Przemek Osuchowski

Globetrotter

The first laureate of the Polish Pulitzer Prize, who used to travel the world as a reporter. Then, for a decade, he produced television programs, worked on six continents. Now, he wanders with his camera, always trying to reach places you’ll never find in any travel agency offer. An occasional writer, mostly when he needs an outlet for his thoughts and experiences. Went backpacking in over

80 countries, and spent at least four weeks in each one. He just believes that shorter trips (not to be confused with holidays) don’t make any sense at all. Altogether, he spent 12 years on the road, almost three of which were in the former Soviet Union. No wonder then that Przemek specialises in extreme car trips. In 2015, he led the first edition of the Venice – Beijing Rally, where enthusiasts of exceptional journeys followed the route of Marco Polo. He rarely rides a motorcycle because it’s “kinda hard to smoke wearing a helmet”. Admits to loving three things in life – women, bridge and fruit distillates. Usually in this order. On those rare occasions when he doesn’t travel you can meet him in Kraków or Toronto.
