RUST is a digital media platform, a YouTube channel, a website, a community, an anti-brand. Born from the Members of Trailbike & Enduro Magazine (TBM) it speaks to off-road and adventure bike enthusiasts, working with journalists and riders from the world over. RUST prides itself in being inclusive; one world, one passion. In RUST we ride, we share, we learn. And we enjoy!

Long time contributor here at RUST. Forty something in his passport, 14 at heart. Dakar and Romaniacs competitor, GS trophy (Team GB). Dog's mate, adventurer, racer, engineer. Denied motorcycles as a kid, so pretty handy on a BMX or downhill MTB. Love's a chat.
Hi There, I'm Nick, a 47 year-old adventurer and motorcycle nut. I live in East Sussex with my wife and two daughter's, both being pretty handy on two wheels (I'm still the fastest- but not for long). Lived in Asia and India for a good few years. Most commonly found tearing around the plantations in Malaysia with a wild bunch of mates or cruising around the Ghats on my Enfield Classic 500.
Crashed PW50 into a tree aged 7. Three operations to fix my right hand later and I was hooked. Chav on a sports bike at first, even a few laps around the Nurburgring but finally came to my senses and these days my passion lies with anything off-road. I love a challenge, be it long nights in the garage rebuilding things or tearing into the desert on a rally. Burgeoning collection of adventure and rally bikes clog my very untidy garage.
