Motorcycle Touring Blog

This is our motorcycle touring blog of the western United States and Canada. This may help other touring motorcyclists in planning your rides.

We began motorcycle touring 5 summers ago, and we’ve learned a lot over 60,000 miles.  We’ve been through more trial & error in; planning, packing and finding places to stay than we hope you go through.  We outline our process as it’s been refined and used in the real world. 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 touring 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.
