There is no better view than the one you get from behind the handlebars of your motorcycle. Motorcycle touring is a growing pastime and that means that more and more popular routes are being discovered. While there are incredible tours found across the country, these are three of our favorites.
Pacific Coast Highway – Santa Cruz to Santa Barbara, California
It’s a classic, maybe THE classic, and that’s for a reason. The California coastline is a matchless beauty and a reliably fair-weather cruise. While the 300-mile stretch between the Bay Area and Santa Barbara get the most attention, adding a few days to the trip and traveling the entire coastal highway from the Oregon border to Mexico is a week long adventure you’ll never forget.
Going to the Sun Road – Glacier National Park Montana
The road is covered in snow most of the year. But every summer, the frozen road melts away to reveal one of the most picturesque alpine rides in the world. The 50-miles of twisting, turning, climbing and descending highway spans the park moving from east to west and reaches an elevation of nearly 7,000 feet above sea level.
Blue Ridge Parkway – Virginia and North Carolina
Autumn touring doesn’t get any better than this. Rolling hills and mountains are blanketed in deciduous and evergreen trees, which ignite in golden splendor every fall season. While the Parkway runs nearly 500 mils in length but can be broken up into several days to allow time for taking in the scenery and stopping at every viewpoint.
As you are going to and from (and even along) these routes, you will run likely into more than a few tolls.
