Planning & Trip Reporting for Motorcycle Adventure Travel
Been a little busy planning to move to another state in 2012 but rode to Tennessee and took the Natchez Trace Parkway south and then home. It's going to be hard to match 2009 and 2010 since I want to also do some trips that are non-motorcycle. Next year I will be traveling to North Dakota where I spend summers as a child and plan to hit the Bad Lands and Black Hills on the way back. There are a bunch of scenic byways I'll be taking both heading north and then coming home. Can't wait to see North Dakota again.
2010 was over 15,000 miles going out to California in May and up to Vermont and Canada two times in August and September. It was my first extensive solo season riding over 13,000 miles by myself. I'm kind of proud of that. Check out all the pictures at Photo Galleries 2010.
2009 was to the maritime provinces of Canada and New England to see national parks, whales, and lighthouses. The year before it was Mexico, the Coahila desert, and Copper Canyon and then back to the US to see Big Bend National Park along with Guadalupe Mountain National Park and Carlsbad Caverns.
On the Planning Board for future trips are still the Natchez Trace and US Southeast, and hopefully in the not too distant future Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone, and the Canadian Rockies.
Motorcycle Journeys is about the planning and preparation to pull off a long distance motorcycle journey.
Pre-Trip: research and planning routes and maps motorcycles and gear.
Post Trip: What worked, what didn't where to go miles and dollars required plus lots of photos.
I'll always be trying some new gear, so I'll also give gear reviews as I go along.
The Trip Report/Feedback page -- okay, it's a blog -- is where I will talk about the activities from getting the destination idea to wrapping up after returning home. So post comments with what you think.
As things are added to the site I'll note it on the left sidebar, so keep checking back.
