About me

Hola! 😀 My friends call me Valvoline or Val.

I am a Spanish, vertically challenged (1.48cm / 4 foot 11) rider, with: The energy of a lizard’s cut tail. The passion of a Spaniard at MotoGP. As annoying as a flea inside an ear. With the love for biking as Kayne West loves himself. Looking at the motolife through a cheap camera and vertically-challenged eyes….Valvoline, you know what I mean! 😉

Always wanting to have owned a motorbike, but a very late starter in the game. Not what I would call a confident rider, until life had other plans and threw me in the fast lane! And once I found ‘the’ bike I’ve never looked back 🙂


About the Lawnmower

KTM Duke 390 (2016, 1st gen). Or affection ally known as “The Lawnmower”. Heavily accessorised for ADV’ing, as it was the first & original adventure 390…. Before the ADV390 came out several years later.

Took her owner 75,000kms in the first 2 years, throughout most states & territories of Australia. And now has just under 100,000kms of varied on and off-road, hard touring kilometres under its wheels. No commuting for this beast for it’s all adventure touring! Ready to tackle more…
