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 »

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 »

Edelweiss Bike Travel Touring Center Alps

The well-known road up to the Queen of the Alps, 9,045-foot Stelvio Pass in Italy, the second highest paved pass in the range. Note the traffic jam where an RV and several cars are trying to negotiate the same switchback.

The Bucket List is a funny, heartstring-pulling movie about two terminally ill men who complete a wish list of experiences before they kick the bucket. They skydive, race classic cars, go on a safari and ride a motorcycle atop the Great Wall of China. Since the movie came out in 2007, “bucket list”... Read more »

When I go on an extended motorcycle tour, I like to ride back roads with plenty of twisties to challenge me, in an area with forests, mountains, lakes and rivers to stimulate the senses. That’s why riding the reservoir roads of New York’s southern highlands makes for a fantastic motorcycle tour.... Read more »

Dreaming of Africa: Ayres African Southern Cross Adventure

Awed by an abyss from atop Swartberg Pass.

It was pitch dark, and the air buzzed with strange insect sounds and animal calls over the quiet ticking of the Land Cruiser’s cooling exhaust. Moments before, our ranger/guide Lyle had killed the Toyota’s engine and headlights on this lonely road in Kruger National Park in order to point out the... 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 »

Gorgeous Columbia: Seattle to the Columbia River Gorge and Back

When it comes to unspoiled natural beauty, the Columbia River Gorge ranks as one of the most stunning places on earth. While that may sound like an overly hyped statement in an overly hyped world, in this case it happens to be true. Few places combine as many elements of beautiful geography and topography—mountains,... Read more »

Scouting the Cumberland Highlands in Tennessee

Forget the highways when visiting the Cumberlands; the real pleasure is in riding these little byways.

I was sitting at a picnic table under a large tree in front of the Cyclemos Motorcycle Museum savoring one of Vinnie T’s burgers with all the trimmings, and a fellow on the other side of the table said, “You’re not from around here.” “Nope,” I agreed, as I looked over the map of Tennessee... Read more »

Catskills Escape: Curves and Coolness in New York’s Reservoir Valleys

The Catskill Mountain region of New York State is home to green mountains, blue water and great motorcycle riding.

Mike Koplen

Say “New York” and people think of Manhattan with its skyscrapers. But most of New York State is rural, with excellent motorcycle roads throughout. From my home in the lower Hudson Valley, I can ride 25 minutes south across the George Washington Bridge into the Big Apple, or head north and cruise... Read more »
