Presentations and Seminars
I have created and continue to create entertaining, educational and inspirational presentations that can be tailored for any audience or event. From bikers to bankers to people with chronic diseases, my inspiring story has a valuable message for all. In addition to speaking to MS patients and caregivers, I have presented to sales representatives, finance departments and international conferences with over 1000 attendees! I travel exclusively by motorcycle, and will ride to any event on this continent! (Just ask the folks I spoke to in Anchorage, Alaska!). My modest speaking fees help offset the financial aspect of my million mile journey. Please contact me as soon as possible to discuss or secure the date for your event.

I have presented at national pharmaceutical sales and finance conferences, AMERICADE, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, Aerostich’s Very Boring Rally 3, Twisted Throttle Open houses, National Powersports Distributors, Northeast European Motorcycle Rally, IBA International Meet, and others. Here is the official description of my latest presentation. Please use the contact form at the bottom for specific needs or to discuss fees.
Life’s Lemons and Long Shots
If life were easy, everyone would get one! No matter what life throws at you, there is a way to continue forward. Whether it’s riding the World’s Toughest Motorcycle Competition on the most unreliable motorcycle ever built, setting a World Record or riding a million miles to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis, Paul’s story of overcoming monumental challenges with ingenuity and sheer will power is inspiring for everyone. Paul recounts his painfully humorous and quite unbelievable adventure on a Russian motorcycle, and explores it’s uncanny similarities to everyday life with an incurable disease.
About the Presenter:
Long distance rider, writer, inspirational speaker and closet comedian living with Multiple Sclerosis, Paul Pelland is on a fantastic adventure, riding a million miles raising awareness and funds for MS while speaking across the country inspiring others to continue following their passions and chasing their dreams as well.

Multiple Sclerosis Presentations
My story, from getting diagnosed to discovering not only how to live with MS, but how I used it to recalculate my entire life’s road, and return to a forgotten passion of long distance riding. The presentation can be tailored for any Multiple Sclerosis or related audience. My million mile mission is reaching out to others facing similar life challenges, encouraging them to continue chasing their dreams and following their passions. My highly modified motorcycle, my gear and my stories from the road usually become part of my appearances as well. Available for pharmaceutical patient events, local or national MS organizations, MS help groups and fundraisers. Contact me below for further information or to reserve your event dates!
