While I know the lean mentality only from a business context, it’s apparently a big thing in enduro riding as well. So it’s not surprising that Jussi is undertaking ambitious off-road motorcycle expeditions. Under his alter-ego, The Rolling Hobo, he is known best for ultralight expeditions in hard conditions. Countries he travelled through are for example Mongolia, Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia and Turkey. As if that’s not impressive enough, he’s also the first Westerner to ride the Russian Zimnik 110 in Siberia.
Such expeditions are neither for average riders nor bikes. That’s why he understands and custom-builds his bikes and equipment for each specific condition. Part of this process is the testing and developing of gear together with OEM’s, which led him to have his own signature products.
Jussi’s latest expedition was Prometheus 19, a seven week expedition ranging from the Arctic to Armenia and back. During the ride, he tested one of Adventure Spec’s new products. Thus, Adventure Spec interviewed the man behind the funny name.
