Sections 5-9 go north on mostly unpaved forest roads through PA to the end of the route at the NY border. Early on in PA, we found this closed road on the route: This was easy enough to route around … Continue reading
Just south of the much touted Oldtown Low Water Toll Bridge, we found this little community park with a much welcome covered pavilion. This little town unexpectedly had all the amenities we could want to wait out the passing rain.
Starting the BDR: Its spring here in NC, which often means its wet. While we were fortunate to have multi-day stretches of great weather that weren’t too hot, riding this route in the fall definitely improves the chances for having … Continue reading
Guess what? Its moto trip time! Those who know us know that we’ve had some obstacles in recent years that have prevented us from taking our beloved extended motorcycle trips. As of spring 2018, however, we were able to dip … Continue reading
So we finally got around to riding the rest of the Blue Ridge Trail (BRT). We hadn’t actually taken any overnight moto trips since our epic Alaska adventure last summer, so by late summer this year, we were ready to … Continue reading
Despite enjoying both motorcycle riding and hiking, we usually don’t combine the two. We’re ATGATT (All the gear, all the time – referring to safety gear) kind of people, and that usually means its not worth the effort at trail … Continue reading

Here’s a gallery of fall and early winter 2013 ride photos that mostly didn’t get their own posts. Most of these are moto tag photos from within half a days ride from home, as that’s most of the riding that … Continue reading
Lately, this pesky work thing has really been cutting into our play time, thus the lack of anything interesting to blog about the last few weeks. We’ve even had several weeks of perfect moto-trip weather to taunt us as we … Continue reading
Day three was Sunday morning, and we awoke to yet another beautiful day. Showers had come through overnight, but packing up camp was more pleasant than usual due to some free bacon from our new friends. We hit the pavement … Continue reading
Day 2 started with overcast but dry weather as we ate some oatmeal for breakfast and packed up camp. Having no idea what was in front of us, I was hoping for some easier roads and pretty scenery for a … Continue reading
IT FINALLY STOPPED RAINING. Well, at least long enough for a weekend camping trip. There has rarely been more than a day without showers this summer. This is great for things like….I dunno, hydropower, for example, but bad for doing … Continue reading
Our dualsport ride on the blue ridge trail a couple of weeks ago turned out to be so much fun, we decided to go again on Saturday. Once more, we zipped 100 miles up the highway (as much as one … Continue reading
Here are a few pics from our most excellent ride on Sunday: The above was taken on the Blue Ridge Parkway north of Roanoke, on our way to some off-road adventure riding a section of the Blue Ridge Trail. The … Continue reading
Probably can’t ride the street bikes here: This grassy hilltop where we had lunch is inside an off-road park with a network of trails not too far away. This section was nice, and the weather was just perfect, but overall … Continue reading
There are just too many places that need to be explored by motorcycle that the street bikes just can’t go. After talking about picking up some used dual-sports for years (street legal dirt bikes), it’s time to go for it. … Continue reading
