Savoring blue skies and empty roads on Norway’s western coast.

Savoring blue skies and empty roads on Norway’s western coast. (Photos by Greg Drevenstedt) First came bone-chilling rain. Then came strong, erratic wind, followed by thick fog that swallowed our conga line of BMWs as we chugged our way up the steep, rough, single-lane road to Vestkapp. Knuckles white,... Read more »

Riding Vermont Historic Route 7A

Vermont Route 153

Ken Aiken
September 3, 2014

Many of Vermont’s roads were built a couple of centuries ago when oxen pulled wagons. Now merely covered by asphalt, these narrow serpentine roads still undulate across the landscape through the moist shade of forests and fields bordered by stone walls. It’s motorcycle-riding paradise. Vermont Route... Read more »

A Whirlwind Motorcycle Tour in Oregon

Crater Lake summer ride

Phil Buonpastore
July 8, 2014

The forested Wizard Island is an emerald green jewel in the sapphire blue Crater Lake. How far can you ride in three days? That was the question I asked myself while planning a loop tour from the city of Seattle into western Oregon. In early July, I had a three-day window and had been looking for the... Read more »

April 3, 2014

Capitol Rock as seen from Sierra Way Highway just north of Johnsondale, California. For most motorcyclists, riding the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California means cruising over passes like Ebbetts, Carson, Monitor, Sonora or Tioga, or visiting the great national parks like Yosemite and Sequoia/Kings... Read more »

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 »

An Alaskan Motorcycle Adventure How-To

Alaska by Motorcycle

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 »

Down To Downieville: Rural California Motorcycle Ride

Sierra Buttes

Denis Rouse
February 3, 2014

Sierra Buttes as seen from the lookout near Bassetts Station on Highway 49. My machine had been idle too long during a busy summer, occupied by matters far less important than riding, so I said to Cookie (Gwen’s father called her that and it stuck and I like it), “Let’s blow out of here on an overnighter... Read more »

The Real South Carolina—Once Around The Palmetto State

Sunflowers Savannah River National Scenic Highway

January 31, 2014

Landscape along the Savannah River National Scenic Highway. (Photos by Alan Paulsen) Frankly, I don’t understand why a rally was ever held in Myrtle Beach. The resort town is a congested strand with residents and police who dislike us motorcyclists, perhaps not without just cause. Even the helpful... Read more »

New England: Revisiting Old Haunts, And Some New, In The Six States

Ocean Drive in Newport, Rhode Island

Clement Salvadori
December 4, 2013

The view is looking along part of the 10-mile Ocean Drive in Newport, Rhode Island; this tasty bit of road is best ridden very early in the morning. (Photos by Clement Salvadori) The sun was shining, the day was warm, and traffic minimal. It was like old times, traveling along Route 66 (Massachusetts,... Read more »

Palouse Wheatland Treasures: Motorcycle Ride Through Washington

Benjamin B. Getz
November 11, 2013

The fall crop of Cirsium vulgare (bull thistle) seems to be thriving along State Route 26, but looks like an unpleasant encounter should one leave the road. (Photos by Benjamin B. Getz) Fall…not my favorite verb, but definitely my favorite time of year for riding at the latitude where I live. Those... Read more »
