Motorcycle Ride Journals

Loading the Goldwing into the Newmar Canyon Star Berni & I on our 2010 Goldwing during a summer ride in Missouri 2016

My wife and I enjoy motorcycle touring. I ride, she as pillion rider. I ride solo on my BMW RT1200 or together on our 1800 Goldwing. Both bikes offer incredible riding experiences.

If we’re out on a long journey it is usually with our riding friends, Don and Manny. As a group, we’ve logged many hours and miles of road.

We make many shorter runs. But when we ride for more than 4 days I keep a journal of our ride for reflection of the enjoyment of the journey as well as to help other riders use our notes and experiences to plan and enjoy the same route or similar routes.
