UPSHIFT Online Magazine
Our favorite off-road motorcycle magazines is, without a doubt, UPSHIFT Online. The high quality photography, clean layout, fascinating world travel articles, and free cost is what sets UPSHIFT apart from the others. With each monthly issue we would pour over the wonderful photography of Tim Burke, Chad de Alva, Olivier de Vaulx, and many others that would inspire us to take to the road and discover the world for ourselves one day.
It has always been a dream of ours to be featured in such a revered magazine and we’ve had the wonderful pleasure of being regular photographers and writers for UPSHIFT over the past few years.
We’ve included a photo of the first page of our articles. Clicking on the photo will open the article.
