The world is still a big place, America is vast, varied, and gorgeous. For some, the motorcycle is a ride to the bar down the street. For others it’s the best way to see the world. Some of these are well known, some of these are secrets you may not have heard of, and some are only here for deeply personal reasons. If you’re looking for a trip, you could do a lot worse than work your way through this list.
Devil’s Tower This is a particularly painful trip. I was planning this trip with my brother and his son when he died. The plan was to leave Menomonee Falls, WI and ride about 9 hours up towards the Missouri River and camp. The next day do Mount Rushmore, the Needles Highway and the Iron Mountain Road.
The Ride to Key West I know bikers in Florida and nearby, and riding to Key West would be amazing.
