Texas

Texas

Texas is big, loud, and brash, and there are so many things to like about riding here. For one, the vast state has plenty of great roads. The people are warm and inviting. There’s always something interesting, unique, or downright strange to see along the way. And even though not everything is bigger in Texas, it won’t stop you from enjoying a road trip out west.

Moab, Utah Shamrock Tour®

Moab, Utah Shamrock Tour®

We all know Moab, a small town in Utah that caters to outdoor enthusiasts. Mountain bikers dream of riding the famous Slickrock Bike Trail, while kayakers and rafters can paddle up to 120 miles on the Colorado River. Side-by-side and Jeep drivers test their luck at the Sand Flats Recreation Area on trails like Hell’s Revenge and Fins & Things. The outskirts of the town are filled with rock climbers, living out of their Sprinter vans and searching for the best crag. Needless to say, the town carries an air of adventure. It’s the perfect basecamp for a Shamrock Tour® and Cameron and I are the lucky ones to do just that.

Scramblin’ Through the Floods, Part 1

Scramblin’ Through the Floods, Part 1

The first trip with luggage on a new motorcycle is always interesting. I’ve owned my 2019 Triumph Scrambler 1200 XE for nearly two years, but this was the first fully packed excursion. With the “mono pannier” setup, I don’t have as much storage space as with the previous steeds I’ve owned, so packing really made me do my best to be a minimalist. Frankly, I’m not very good at it. After a false start of about a half mile, I rode back home, laid everything out on the garage floor, and trimmed down the luggage. After an hour of repacking, I finally started my adventure.

Vietnam

Vietnam

For a long time, it was difficult for foreigners to travel to Vietnam. That has changed. The north of the country is still a very remote, but very much worthwhile destination.

2022 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak

2022 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak

The sun was dropping fast and taking the temperature with it, but we were at the bottom of Hwy 243, one of the best stretches of twisty pavement southern California has to offer. And just because none of the other journalists (except the Canadian, of course) bothered bringing heated gear, shouldn’t mean he and I had to suffer. We were both warm and chomping at the bit to ride Ducati’s newest sportbike up the mountain. But our ride leader, former professional road racer Jake Zemke, who also wasn’t engulfed in thermoelectricity, didn’t see it our way.
