Mother Nature explodes with bountiful colors, scented breezes, vibrant blue skies and dramatic clouds floating across the heavens. That’s why my friends,... Read more »

New York Horses

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 »

Sidehacking into History

Dirt roads just south of four-lane Highway 401 in southern Ontario.

Many motorcyclists consider freeway speed limits to be a barrier. On a Ural, they’re more like an accomplishment. But the thrill one feels at 75 mph on three wheels fades fast, and not much of life happens at that speed anyway. So less than a hundred miles of our 2,800-mile round-trip to the Niagara... Read more »

Say “New York” and people think of Manhattan with its skyscrapers. But most of New York State is rural, with excellent motorcycle roads throughout.

(This story was published in the July 2012 issue of Rider magazine.) Story and photos by Clement Salvadori My duties at Americade, up in Lake George, New York, were finished by noon—I could have been in Buffalo by nightfall, had I chosen to hustle along the Interstates. But that’s not much fun; might... Read more »

I’m 25 miles north of Lake George, New York, taking a break alongside the shore of the lake of the same name, when four riding buddies pull in beside me. Nothing unusual about that. Except for the mix of motorcycles they’re riding: a brand-new, big-ticket Harley-Davidson cruiser, a 1980s-era 750cc... Read more »
