Local Hero: Arthur Bremner

This recent CU graduate is volunteering in local hospitals as he motorcycles across the Western Hemisphere.

There are a lot of ways to travel the world, and Arthur Bremner has discovered one of the best ones. The recent CU Boulder physiology graduate is currently traveling the globe while integrating his two biggest passions: healthcare and motorcycles. He’s riding his 2000 Honda XR650L dual-sport motorcycle across the Americas, volunteering in hospitals and local clinics along the way. 

In 2017, Bremner began rebuilding the bike’s engine. He stripped the entire bike down to the frame, cleaning every nook and cranny. “I entirely disassembled the bottom and top end of the engine in order to install new second and fifth gears in the transmission,” he says, “as well as an increased bore and piston size and an increased compression ratio.”

Bremner graduated from CU this past May and left for his trip in July. He has since put over 10,000 miles on the bike. His first volunteer stop began in early September in El Porvenir, Honduras, on the Caribbean coast, where he volunteered for four to six weeks before riding onward.
