Exploring Historic Southern Arizona on a Honda CB500X

Black Mountains, Arizona

Clement Salvadori
March 6, 2014

The CB500X and I are headed up to Oatman on old Route 66 and have pulled off the road to take a picture of the Black Mountains. There is something about the Old West that appeals to romantics—myself included. Shoot-outs on Main Street, brothels with beautiful ladies, stagecoaches rushing along and... Read more »

Steven M. Green
February 28, 2014

Every adventurous motorcyclist dreams of riding to a far-off destination like Alaska on the spur of the moment; just drop everything and take off for a month or a year. If you’re not going on an organized tour, though, the reality requires some serious planning. Especially if you have just returned... Read more »

The Ultimate Alps with Edelweiss Bike Travel

Dolomites

Dexter Ford
February 5, 2014

Austrians and Italians have fought for centuries over the Dolomites. Now we know what all the fuss was about. About 50 million years ago, Africa, which was probably glancing down at its iPhone, crashed headfirst into Europe, which was just sitting in plate-tectonic traffic, minding its own business. Like... Read more »

From the mountains of Terni in central Italy, to the Mediterranean at sea level, the Motogiro d’Italia course included a long stretch of the famous Amalfi Coast. “My friend Giuseppe was down for the count,” said Burt Richmond of Illinois. “He was laid out on a stone wall with a medic holding... Read more »

Return to Baja

Sea of Cortez

Steven M Green
January 20, 2014

Stopping to enjoy the view outside of Puertecitos, a short ride south of Ensenada, we rested and admired the Sea of Cortez. My buddy Dave’s rental BMW F 800 GS, from MotoQuest, was perfect for the trip. Having completed a long tour, everyone asks me: “Where ‘ya going next?” After reading a newspaper... Read more »

Motorcycle Riding Through Scenic Eastern New York

New York Horses

Scott Williams
January 3, 2014

I glanced down at the clock on my GPS and saw the time change from 6:59 to 7:00 a.m. I looked back up and saw Doug Gray pull into our meeting spot. Punctuality is a quality I have long associated with Doug. I’ve also learned to appreciate his ability to combine interesting roads into great routes. That... Read more »

Quail 2013: Motorcycles of the Future at the Fifth Annual Motorcycle Gathering

Quail 2013

Clement Salvadori
November 8, 2013

Early morning set-up out at the Quail Golf Club in Carmel Valley. Mark Mitchell can be proud of his 1919 Harley-Davidson J Model with sidecar—the combination costing $480 back then. Even though I’ve been to all five of the Quail Motorcycle Gatherings thus far, I still find it a delightful hodgepodge... Read more »

Pigeon River Country: Sport Touring in Michigan

KB Valley Michigan

Kari Chamberlain
November 6, 2013

Michigan riders looking for sporting back roads with minimal traffic and serious curves in the northern portion of the Lower Peninsula need only follow the elk herd. The state of Michigan introduced seven elk to the Wolverine area in 1918, and now a free-ranging herd numbering nearly 1,000 animals roams... Read more »

Nevada’s Loneliest Road…and it isn’t U.S. 50

Cathedral Gorge.

Alan Paulsen
September 12, 2013

U.S. Highway 50 across the breadth of Nevada is billed as the state’s loneliest road. Having traversed U.S. 50 numerous times, I have to disagree. U.S. Highway 93 down the eastern length of Nevada is nearly 200 miles farther and extends through as much emptiness and lonely towns as the former. But... Read more »
