The Real South Carolina—Once Around The Palmetto State

Sunflowers Savannah River National Scenic Highway

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 »

Crystal River Riding Reboot—Motorcycle Riding in Florida

Florida motorcycle ride

October 8, 2013

Last summer I relocated from Southern California to Central Florida, primarily to pursue a job opportunity, but in the back of my rider’s mind was the added lure of roads untraveled in what my SoCal riding homies refer to as the “Far Side” of the USA. But the day I rolled my Hona VTX1300 down the... Read more »

Coal, Country & Curves—Eastern Kentucky

At a certain time of year, the bite in the night air has me working phrases such as “last chance” and “end of the season” into conversations, until my wife finally gets tired of hearing it and kicks me out the door for one final motorcycle trip before the shivering season begins. This year, I... Read more »

Motorcycle Riding Along the Natchez Trace Parkway

Riding through this lush, green corridor, you lose your sense of time and place. Progress is measured by simple, brown roadside mile-markers.

Rod Serling’s words ran through my mind as I turned off Highway 61 to enter the southern portal of the Natchez Trace Parkway: Next stop, the Twilight Zone. Well, the Trace isn’t quite that odd, but it is a world unto itself. This 440-mile strip of Mother Nature is devoid of commercial traffic and... Read more »

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

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 »

Riding to Daytona: A Woman’s Solo Journey from Ohio to Florida

Deep in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, I pulled my 2011 Harley-Davidson SuperLow 883 Sportster over to the edge of a back road. I took off my helmet, listening to the wind whispering through the branches of the tall, slender pines. It was just my motorcycle and me, and I couldn’t have been happier. This... Read more »

Motorcycle Travel in the Appalachians

Typical vistas along the Virginia/Kentucky border.

“I think I’m lost.” Twenty miles had passed since departing the only hotel in Cumberland, Kentucky, that had a sign hanging in a broken window that read, “Closed.” That’s when the thought came to mind that I might be in trouble. I’d been traveling lonely State Route 522 for a while now,... Read more »

The Blue Ridge Parkway from the Backseat

Mabry Mill, built in 1910, is a working mill and the most photographed sight along the way.

Plenty of riders have sung the praises of the Blue Ridge Parkway. But I’m here to give you the straight story from the passenger’s point of view. You remember us; we’re the ones in the turbulence, with no handlebars to hang onto and no clear view of the road ahead. Ours is a different experience... Read more »

St. Augustine SaddleSore

Taking a break by the palmetto trees on Interstate 95 in South Carolina.

My favorite rides are usually on the Blue Ridge Parkway by way of the connecting back roads that bring multitudes of motorcycle riders to the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina and Virginia. My home in Mayodan, North Carolina, is just 50 miles from the arterial ribbon of asphalt up on the Blue Ridge,... Read more »
