Motorcycle touring blog.

Motorcycle touring blog. Taking longer motorcycle trips. What should we take and what should we leave behind?

How do we pack the motorcycle? This is our experience over 100,000 miles on a motorcycle, across 8 states, British Columbia & Alberta..

Do we plan a trip, or just pick a direction and go? We’ve tried it both ways. There are pros & cons to each. Having a plan for your motorcycle trip probably feels safer. However, when you start a tour without any plans, your motorcycle travel takes on a new sense of adventure.

Motorcycle travel adds a sense of freedom to the trip you were already planning. We plan most of our trips now and we still have flexibility on each tour.

We learned from everyone we could before launching off on the 1st trip. We hope this is useful to others who are about to start.

If you’re an experienced traveler, then maybe our motorcycle touring blog will inspire you in planning another long distance tour. We would love to hear about your trips. Reading other people’s experiences always gives us new ideas.

Sometimes your trips give us new insight into planning more or different destinations. We find we missed something and it makes us want to go again.

Read some of the blogs below that we follow, or what the heck, start your own motorcycle travel blog.

We live in Bend, located in the heart of Central Oregon.
