(Read the dispatch from Day 6) The weather is perfect as we depart our rustic but comfortable accommodations at Estancia Cueva De Las Manos near Baja Caracoles and continue south along iconic Ruta (route) 40, the main north-south highway in Argentine Patagonia. Eric had warned that Ruta 40 separates... Read more »

(Read the dispatch from Day 5) It’s hard to leave the Tres Lagos paradise, but the road beckons and the heart of Patagonia lies ahead. The morning is cool and slightly damp, trapping the dust down low as we ride through the sleepy town of Puerto Guadal. We pass two horsemen on spirited steeds that... Read more »

Day 5: Patagonia Adventure Tour

The day begins with a subtle sunrise.

March 27, 2013

(Read the dispatch from Day 4) In Patagonia there is rest for the weary, and we were glad for it. The first real work of every day on the road – besides pulling our tired butts out of bed – is re-packing the gear bags that explode all over our rooms every night. Then we schlep them down to the truck... Read more »

(Read the dispatch from Day 3) The day begins early with breakfast eaten, bags packed and the group on the dock at Puyuhuapi Lodge by 8:30. After a quick trip back to the mainland we slide the bikes down the wet, grassy hillside where they spent the night and are soon riding south on a 39-degree morning.... Read more »

Riding Sardinia and Corsica with IMTBike

This is the little port of Castelsardo on the north coast of Sardinia, crowned with the traditional castle, built in the late 1200s; that was Homeland Security, 13th century-style.

It was our second morning in Sardinia. After a bountiful breakfast we were riding along 30 miles of coast road that could cause California’s Big Sur Highway 1 to look a bit boring. A couple of hours later found us in the Gennargentu Mountains, where the well-paved byways, twisting and turning like... Read more »

Edelweiss Bike Travel Touring Center Alps

The well-known road up to the Queen of the Alps, 9,045-foot Stelvio Pass in Italy, the second highest paved pass in the range. Note the traffic jam where an RV and several cars are trying to negotiate the same switchback.

The Bucket List is a funny, heartstring-pulling movie about two terminally ill men who complete a wish list of experiences before they kick the bucket. They skydive, race classic cars, go on a safari and ride a motorcycle atop the Great Wall of China. Since the movie came out in 2007, “bucket list”... Read more »

Adriatic Motorcycle Tours’ Beautiful Balkans Adventure

Our tour group overlooking Kotor Bay and the ancient city of Kotor in Montenegro. The walled city, once controlled by the Republic of Venice and renowned for its Venetian architecture, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From this overlook, we zigzagged down a steep road with dozens of hair-raising hairpin curves.

The Balkans. Not usually the first place that comes to mind when planning a motorcycle trip. When tasked with reviewing Adriatic Motorcycle Tours’ 15-day, four-country Beautiful Balkans Adventure, I had few preconceived notions about the region. As it turns out, vast forests, deep canyons, rugged mountains... Read more »
