(The article Border Run was printed in the August 2012 issue of Rider.) Story and photos by Ben Getz Good things come in threes, they say…or is that disasters? Well, maybe it’s not that important, since both descriptions have been applied to my friends and me. One hot August weekend my disparate... Read more »

(This Long Road to Indy feature was published in the June 2012 issue of Rider magazine.) Imagine a multi-state Main Street for Motorcycling, a cross-country route made just for riding. Miles of sinuous asphalt draped over rolling hills, winding past tumbledown barns with faded Mail Pouch tobacco ads,... Read more »

The Haul Road: A Motorcycle Tour of Alaska’s Dalton Highway

Vegetation is sparse on the North Slope of the Brooks Range. A plant no taller than knee-high is probably decades old.

Frederick Tressler

My first ride to Alaska in 2008 was a 15-day, 7,600-mile affair and the fulfillment of a long delayed dream. Yet I still had the nagging feeling of unfinished business. In many ways it merely stoked my appetite for northern travel. This time getting to Alaska involved a 21-day, 8,400-mile round trip... Read more »

Newfoundland Adventure: Motorcycle Travel Feature

Twillingate is the “Iceberg Capital” of Newfoundland. Icebergs arrive from Greenland from March to July. They are composed of snow that fell 15,000 years ago and average the size of a 15-story building. And yes, 90 percent of an iceberg is below water.

I had made the classic GPS mistake—punched in a destination without checking a map. I was in Sydney, Nova Scotia, but the ferry was boarding in North Sydney, 12 miles away.... Read more »

Adriatic Motorcycle Tours’ Beautiful Balkans Adventure

Our tour group overlooking Kotor Bay and the ancient city of Kotor in Montenegro. The walled city, once controlled by the Republic of Venice and renowned for its Venetian architecture, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From this overlook, we zigzagged down a steep road with dozens of hair-raising hairpin curves.

The Balkans. Not usually the first place that comes to mind when planning a motorcycle trip. When tasked with reviewing Adriatic Motorcycle Tours’ 15-day, four-country Beautiful Balkans Adventure, I had few preconceived notions about the region. As it turns out, vast forests, deep canyons, rugged mountains... Read more »
