“Idaho has some of the finest motorcycle riding in the American West. For two wheel travel you can’t beat the scenery, diversity of terrain and the sheer ability to get away from civilization. Idaho Falls is a great departure point because of the easy-to-access airport and for its proximity to so many great places to visit.”
It’s a marvelous fantasy: packing your motorcycle, pulling out of your garage and leaving all your cares and worries behind by taking a long motorcycle trip. Endless horizons, great food, beautiful vistas, interesting people—it’s all part of the allure of “the big motorcycle trip”. It’s a wonderful fantasy, and I’ve been lucky enough to be able do it. Here are my tips for making your dream ride every bit as enjoyable as you imagine it to be.
Let’s face it: we all have some piece of motorcycle kit that’s our hands-down favorite. Mine is, pardon the pun, my Mickey glove by Racer gloves. When you pick them up you notice that the leather feels like quality leather. Inspecting the stitching (which all motorcycle riders should do with every piece of motorcycle safety apparel) and you’ll also see that it’s double-stitched.
will see if this is going to make this work, I really Fricking hope so or I might just have to turn my mac into a drinking flying saucer! I’ve wasted to much time on this S*$%&!! That is my testing of this scribe fire module….
So It looks like Harley is throwing their hat in the ring of electric motorcycles at least it gets electric motorcycles more press!
When going on a ride most people will tell you it’s best to be prepared and I will admit having the right tool or the right gear in the time of need is a comfort. Having the right gear can make riding your motorcycle more enjoyable at times, for instance when it’s raining and you have rain gear you just pull under the closest cover, don your gear and back on the road you go. For me however I don’t mind getting wet, I don’t even mind getting soaked to the core, sure it can be a little uncomfortable on occasions, but for me it’s part of the adventure of riding. On an occasion like that getting back and getting out of the wet clothes, sitting by a fire drinking hot coffee is an extension of the adventure. You never know how cold you are until you are sitting by a warm fire sipping a hot coffee. It’s the extremes of the ride that some of us enjoy, I being one… So this is my top 10 items to carry on your bike when going on a short ride. A short ride for me is less than eight hours, but more than four.

Being a motorcycle traveler doesn’t always mean you get to have your personal bike on the trip there are occasions when it is more reasonable to rent a bike while in the area. Sometimes you’re just going for a vacation and a lot of people might not think about renting a motorcycle for you entire vacation, but let me tell you it is a fantastic way to see the place you are visiting. I’ve list just a few reasons below why renting a motorcycle is a great idea on your next trip.
- You’ll get to see more of the place you are visiting
- You’ll be more likely to get involved with the local community rather than be stuck in the tourist areas
- You’ll be less likely to be seen as a tourist.
- The experience will be that much better on a bike
I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Next time you’re on a trip and you can’t take your bike why not rent one, you’ll be glad you did!
