Moto Guzzi’s California 1400 Touring in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains

Lone Pine and the almost-dry Owens Lake

Back roads make me happy. Two lanes, little traffic, preferably with lots of curves and undulations, rather like the better parts of California Routes 58, 120 and 178. Lots of gear changes, lots of lean, maybe a little braking on occasion when the yellow and black warning sign says 30 mph and the speedo... Read more »

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

Cathedral Gorge.

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 »

Story and photos by Phil Buonpastore When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is look out the window. It’s a habit I’ve acquired since moving to the Seattle area. Given the sometimes long periods of cold and rainy weather from October to April, any clear day warrants an immediate change... Read more »

Hunting Waterfalls in Oregon

Powerful and thunderous, 120-foot Sahalie Falls on the McKenzie River is easily reached from a marked parking lot off Highway 126.

Oregon’s Cascade Mountains were created by volcanic fire and falling water. Today the fire is gone, but the volcanic formations and falling water remain, providing breathtaking natural scenery and motorcycling roads we all dream about riding. This tour crisscrosses Oregon’s central and southern Cascades... Read more »

Great Roads: Motorcycle Riding in Montana

In the background, Going-to-the-Sun Road clings precariously to the western flanks of Logan Pass in Montana.

Yellowstone National Park, on the south end of Montana, is a veritable three-ring safari and special-effects razzle-dazzle where, no matter what you’re taking in, there’s something else you’re missing. Glacier National Park, on the north end of Montana, is the same way. A bevy of bison graze near... 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.

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 »

Crisscrossing the Lower Colorado River–Hoover Dam to the Oxbow Bridge

n an open road like this, the Gold Wing GL1800 is a wonderful ride.

For more than 35 years, a contingent of aging Yuppies that includes Yours Truly has been convening at Furnace Creek Ranch in Death Valley in late winter. Now, after three nights of carousing, retelling oft-told tales and ignoring realities, the DV weekend was over. I cranked up the Honda Gold Wing GL1800... Read more »

Southern Utah Splendor

As a tribute to our favorite motorcycle writer, Ted and I donned berets and posed for a photo in Castle Valley, Utah, east of Moab. Castleton Tower is in the background.

For three decades, my buddy Ted and I have taken long rides from our homes near Portland, Oregon. Years ago, we exhausted all the scenic roads within a day’s ride, so we bought a Kendon Stand-Up trailer in order to get our 60-year-old selves and Suzuki V-Strom 650s farther afield with enough energy... Read more »

“Last minute…but epic!” The attention-getting email was from Manny Pandya, the younger of the Amazing Pandya Brothers, two quick-witted gearheads who handle press relations for Victory Motorcycles. Manny was recruiting a small band of misfits for the Strip to Chip Tour, a floorboard-scraping,... Read more »
