The Patagonia Experience: Touring Chile and Argentina with RIDE Adventures

The Cuernos del Paine glow like beacons in the morning sun. The weather is fickle, though—clouds were already gathering as we motored off for our last day of riding.

Arden Kysely

The Cuernos del Paine stop us in our tracks. One rider after another pulls over to gaze at the chiseled peaks jutting up like deformed teeth in a Tolkien monster’s mouth. Gliding into the scene on motorcycles only enhances the experience. We slalom down a canyon road that reveals new vistas at each... Read more »

No gasoline, but many pleasant memories are available at this unique museum adjacent to the Clifton Mill in Clifton, Ohio.

William Murphy

Simon Kenton is one of America’s least-known heroes. Kenton and Daniel Boone were contemporaries in the beautiful but deadly wilderness of the Ohio River Valley during the nation-building period of the late 1700s and early 1800s. Boone’s story would have ended badly in a 1777 battle with Shawnee... Read more »

If your goal is to ride Yankee Country with its rural roads, quaint colonial villages and charming churches, there’s no place better than western Connecticut and Massachusetts. On this interesting trip, I had the additional benefit of riding some of the scenic roads of northern New Jersey and southern... Read more »

Great Roads: Motorcycle Riding in Missouri

The “Big Muddy” Missouri River flows at a rapid pace, seeking its junction with the Mississippi River just north of St. Louis.

The crack of the bat and the smell of yeast are never far away in St. Louis, a vibrant city—kingdom of baseball and beer. It’s home of the National League Cardinals and the historical site of the nation’s largest brewer, the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. This ride from St. Louis to Frankenstein is an... Read more »

2013 Corsa MotoClassica

Neck-and-neck racing often came down to the finish line, with evenly-matched bikes fighting for every inch of track, no matter the engine size.

Paul Garson

Coming or going, three days of high-desert vintage racing brought out bikes of all flavors to the 18th annual Corsa MotoClassica. It was the 18th running of the three-day vintage bike event, a combination of non-stop racing, classic bike show, swap meet and grooving on the high-desert terrain some 55... Read more »

Western Massachusetts BONE Ride

The Golden Eagle Restaurant in Clarksburg, Massachusetts, is at the Mohawk Trail’s famous Hairpin Turn. The second floor balcony offers great views of the valley—and drivers trying to negotiate that turn!

I’m a western Massachusetts native who’s been called Bones since childhood, so when I learned about an upcoming “Western Mass BONE Ride,” naturally, I investigated. A BONE Ride, it turns out, involves an organization called New England Riders and roads that its members include among the Best... Read more »

4 Corners 4 Kids: Traveling to the Four Corners of the U.S. For Charity

A smile from two kids at Shriners Children’s Hospital in Sacramento, California.

Laura Melvin

I have made some road trips in my nine years of riding, but I’ve never managed to stay gone long enough to want the trip to end. I’m 64 years old and have begun to age like my dog—seven years on the body for one year on the calendar. So I began to think about a long trip before my body declared... Read more »

The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club track in San Diego, California, has serious history with the motorcycle community. It was long the site of a one-mile AMA flat track race, and has been a venue for classic Concours events for more than two decades. Encroaching urbanization and powerful residential landholders... Read more »

Motorcycle Tour of Connecticut: A Taste of Nutmeg

West Cornwall’s covered bridge over the riffling Housatonic River dates from 1864.

Alan Paulsen
May 10, 2013

Connecticut is a compact state, some 60 miles wide by 100 miles across. When I studied a map of this coastal New England state, I began to notice that practically every road around its borders is marked a scenic route. So I considered that a perimeter run was in order to taste the spice of the Nutmeg... Read more »

2013 Paso Robles (CA) Sidecar & Vintage Bike Show

April in Paso Robles (CA)is a delightful month, with leafy trees and the vineyards just beginning to green out.

Clement Salvadori

Back in ’07 Karyl Lammers, who runs a shop in Paso Robles selling aftermarket motorcycle stuff, called up the Chamber of Commerce and asked if she could promote a little sidecar exhibition in the City Park during an arts & crafts show. The park was certainly big enough to allow this, and the... Read more »
