Motorcycle Touring Blog

Motorcycle Touring Blog includes information for those planning their first long ride and experienced travelers as well.  We began motorcycle travel 4 summers ago, and we’ve learned a lot over 60,000 miles.  We report on our motorcycle travels throughout the western United States and Canada.  We go off topic now and then to blog about food or some other, hopefully interesting stuff.

Below, are ride reports on some of our adventures as we seek out the top motorcycle roads in America.    We blog about, National Parks, motorcycle roads, restaurants and the people we meet along the way.

In the links above there are, “How to” articles  around, planning & what to take as well as tips on packing your motorcycle and gear reviews.  If you’re new to long distance riding we have information to make the trip go smoother.  If you’re an experienced motorcycle traveler, we may have been to places you’re planning on going.

Our V Star 1300 Deluxe has been the perfect ride for touring the western United States & Provinces.

Spanning 4 summers, we’ve visited 8 states and  British Columbia. We have  ridden almost 60,000 miles.  We live in Bend, located in the heart of Central Oregon.
