Gionata Nencini – Founder
“I believe the adventure motorcycle touring market is all about the experience and credibility customers can rely to”
Originally from Italy, Gionata Nencini set out on his motorcycle in May 2005, leaving Florence to embark on a solo adventure that led him to discover 50 countries and 5 continents in a span of 8 years. After traveling 270,000 kilometers (168.000 miles) and working along the way, Gionata returned back to Italy after collecting experiences in the Siberian tundra, the Australian deserts, the fjords of New Zealand, the Patagonian steppe, the Andean plateau, the tropics and throughout North America. The vivid memory of the places he came to know and the desire to share his experiences with other moto-enthusiasts led to his founding of Ride True ADV and to fully devote his time as lead coordinator and motorcycle guide .
Gionata’s passion for writing, photography and video editing contribute to the post production of each moto-tour with exciting and dynamic featured videos and trip reports. His traveling through English and Spanish-speaking countries provided him the opportunity to gain a solid command for each respective language, a skill that allows him to interact with motorcyclists from all over the world and accompany them without language barriers throughout the journey.
Today he guides motorcycle tours in South America and Europe and continues the search for exciting new routes to share with other passionate riders. Gionata has written extensively about his global travels from 2005-2013, which is available to the public through his personal blog, PARTIREper.it, or through motorcycle magazines such as: Motociclismo, In Moto and Mototurismo. His adventure was also broadcasted on ESPN, MEDIASET and RAI.
In 2015, ten years after embarking on a voyage of discovery that changed his life by opening and expanding new horizons, Gionata accredits his motorcycle travel experiences by publishing his first book: Il Manuale del Motoviaggiatore (The moto-traveller handbook).
