Motorcycle Touring at Its Finest – Read Easiest

Portrait of senior motorcyclist
I love touring the Rocky Mountains and experiencing it in all of its glory on two wheels. Riding the sweeping curves, tight switchback, and conquering the high mountain passes.
Of COURSE you say, and I hear the rest of that sentence,,,,,”I live 2000 miles away, and don’t have time to spend 3-4 days getting there, and 3-4 days back”.
Solution: FLY AND RIDE!!!!!!

Fly into Salt Lake City, pick up a late model rent a Harley cruiser or “bagger”, or even the “Cadillac” of tour bikes, a Honda GoldWing, and set off for your experience of a life-time. Utah has some of the best riding in the country. You can ride through the canyons of Bryce and Zion National Parks, or head west to the Bonneville Salt Flats and watch some amazing machines hitting speeds unimaginable anywhere else.

By using the FLY and Ride approach, you eliminate most of the time spent getting to what you really want to do,,,RIDE. Compound that with the fact that you don’t put the wear and tear on your “baby” (and yes, we mean your ride), let the rental company take care of all the maintenance like those oil changes, tires, etc., and renting a bike at your destination becomes a very viable option.
Utah has everything from the the Rockies to the Bonneville Salt Flats. A good day ride will get you to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone or to the Grand Canyon, depending on the direction you set out.

So think about the 1 or 2 weeks of vacation time you want to use this summer, make a commitment to explore the Rockies and West US, and give Kim or Steve Ray a shout at Escape Motorcycle Rentals, and they will help you make all the arrangements necessary to book a shiny late model Harley or Honda GoldWing.
