Valerii first rode a bike when he was 18. After tinkering with two-wheeled Soviet heritage he found a love for long-distance travel on Japanese bikes. In 2010-2011 Valerii rode around the world on a Honda Africa Twin making his childhood dream come true.
Once back in Ukraine, he created and hosted "Motoshow" program aired by the First National TV channel. Later he set up his riding school and led our first tour to the Himalayas in 2016.
In addition to his roles in Mototravel Valerii is the head of FMSU
motorcycle travel commission and a member of FIM Europe
