Motorcycle adventures – Places to go on a Motorcycle – Motorcycling destinations – or our preferred term – The Bucket List. Call it what you will, these are places to go, people to meet and things to be getting on with. Essentially … Life is short, so ride the damn bike!


Confessions of a Born Again Biker - The Bucket List
The ones in black we have done and the grey ones are in planning.

Confessions of a Born Again Biker - Cemetery Circuit Road Sign
Started in 1951 by the Sport Motorcycle Club and the Summer Carnival Committee, the desire was to stage a continental style round the houses racing, using the city streets.

Confessions of a Borm Again Biker - Dallas Texas
Dallas Texas is perhaps an unlikely place to think of going to hire a motorcycle, but somewhere with no end of possibilities. A long road trip to Sturgis or the Galveston Lone Star Rally, perhaps. Or maybe it is just the wide open spaces.

 
Confessions of a Born Again Biker - Death Valley Sign
Death Valley National Park – California & Nevada USA. It is the lowest, driest, and hottest area in North America. Trip being planned.

Confessions of a Born Again Biker - IOM Sign
Owning a motorcycle and not being aware of the Isle of Man, is perhaps akin to a fish not knowing about water. Nonetheless, here is the deal.

Confessions of a Born Again Biker - Oliver's Mount
Tucked away along a winding set of side roads in the coastal town of Scarbrough, North Yorkshire in England, is Oliver’s Mount, one of the most amazing race tracks in England.

Confession of a Born Again Biker - Picos Road Sign
Described by one magazine as the worst kept secret in touring, but with many of the best roads … We went further west from the Picos de Europa and based ourselves in Navia. Same great roads, great people and low prices.

Confessions of a Born Again Biker - Stelvio Pass
The Stelvio Pass in northern Italy rises to a height of just over 9,000 feet (2,750 meters) above sea level. Closed in winter (roughly November to May each year), there are three routes to the top all featuring very steep gradients and numerous hairpin bends.

With so many great places to visit and people to meet, it is difficult to know where to go next. Any suggestions gratefully received. Hell, has already been suggested 🙂

Whereas the information on these pages is as correct as we could make it, inevitably things will change. We can’t guarantee that everything will be as we describe, but then again where would the fun be in that? We often ride off into the countryside because we haven’t been there and don’t know what might happen or what we might find. That is the whole point.
