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?
Do we plan a trip, or just pick a direction and go ride until it’s time to come home? Motorcycle travel is way different than any trip you’ve made in a car. It adds a sense of adventure to the adventure you were already planning. We learned from everyone we could before launching off on the 1st trip and we hope this is useful to others who are about to start.
If you’re an experienced road warrior, then maybe our motorcycle touring blog will inspire you or help you in planning another long distance tour.
Motorcycle Touring & Travel Blog
Don & Karla go for a ride
This site started out as a, “How to” guide for beginning long distance touring. How to plan motorcycle trips, how to pack, what to carry, and it’s grown with our experience. Spanning 6 summers, we’ve visited 8 states, British Columbia & Alberta. We have ridden 95,000 miles.
2020 brought us a “new” 2018 Star Venture. This was a luxury upgrade for us.
We’ve learned so much from other riders; trip reports & blogs, we wanted to contribute as well. Now, our trip report section is our motorcycle travel blog.
We live in Bend, located in the heart of Central Oregon.
