With 45+ years of riding experience, the team has developed a library of our favorite rides in Texas and points beyond. We call them our Twisted Rides. We thought it might be a good idea to share that experience and encourage you to do the same!

We partnered with MyRoute-app, a leading provider of route planning tools, to create and share the routes. Using the map below, Users are able to view and download the routes without registering with MyRoute-app. If you would like the ability to open/edit/save the routes, the User will be prompted to register with MyRoute-app and offered two subscription levels - Basic (free) and Gold (fee dependent on subscription term and payment method). Being an avid ride planner, I prefer the Gold level for the additional features and I also believe in supporting independent software developers who invest their time and talents to create useful applications for the motorcycle industry. As a Twisted Rides referral, you receive an extended evaluation period and special pricing if you choose the Gold level - so give it a shot!

Go West! Tour - It's Official!

Well, it's official. We are going to cut the trip down to 18-19 days, depending on return routing.

I'll save the NorCal/Yosemite portion for another day...maybe a mancation if someone is interested.

Go West! Tour - Trimming the Fat Off the Route

Now that we are back on US soil, it's time to finalize the plans for the Go West! Tour. 

To refresh, we had planned a trailer/ride excursion where we would visit our daughter and her family in Colorado Springs, then head over to Southern Oregon to visit with SIL/BIL. From there, we would jump on the bike and do the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) from mid-Oregon down to the Avenue of the Giants (big redwoods), then back to Southern Oregon. Then we would trailer down to Lake Tahoe and use that as a base to tour the old Gold Rush towns for 3-4 days on the bike. Then trailer down to Yosemite for some more saddle time, though the crowds may be unbearable.

My original routing had us on the road for 26 days. Liz is expressing some reluctance - though not yet rejection - to being out that long. We may cut the NorCal/Yosemite portion, which would bring us down to 18-19 days.

I will be consulting Evil Willie and my Dominican advisers for wisdom. Feel free to share yours as well.
