Hills and curves are the norm in southeastern Ohio, and State Route 93 is no exception. Each day in Jackson, Ohio, I ride State Route 93, which shares its title with Main Street until it pops out on the other side of town.

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.

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 »

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 »

Whidbey Island’s beautiful sunset is the finale of a perfect riding day. (Photos by Phil Buonpastore) Riding a motorcycle in the Pacific Northwest is chock full of yin and yang.
