The Texas Adventure Company is focused on dual sport adventure riding.  Based in the Austin, TX metro area, my primary purpose with this website is to contribute to the dual sport community and to promote and share the passion and fun of dual sport adventure riding.

My name is Richard Gibbens, of Austin, TX, and I am the organizer, promoter, & head bottle washer of The Texas Adventure Co.  I’ve had a life-long love of motorcycling, starting with motocross as a kid and progressing to dual sport adventure riding in later years.

After years of exploring the Texas Hill Country, Big Bend, the Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas, and the mountains south of Monterrey, Mexico I to put my knowledge to use by writing motorcycling guides for each of these areas. 

I built this website as another means of sharing my love of motorcycling, photography, and dual sport adventure riding.  I hope you find it interesting and useful.
