6 Things That Should Be on Every Motorcyclists Bucket List

1. Take an Epic Trip

Not all of us can take a four month trip, or even a one month trip. But most of us can take a road trip for a week or two. Whether you go by car, plane, or motorcycle you still create memories to last a life-time. Simply trying new things, sightseeing, and enjoying yourself are what make any trip worthwhile. Regardless of whether you ride or not, traveling to Cabot Trail, Graciosa Trail, Pacific Coast Highway, and Highway 12 are just a few epic trips everyone should put on their bucket list.

2. Attempt MotoCamping

A motorcyclist’s trip would not be complete or epic without at least attempting MotoCamping. Motorcycle camping is much different than car camping and requires much more compact and lightweight packing. MotoCamping is basically camping with a backpack and two wheels. With MotoCamping you really have to condense your packing and only take the absolute necessities.

3. The Cabot Trail (Canada)

4. The Graciosa Trail (Brazil)

The Graciosa Trail in Brazil is not for beginners and only for the brave. Those brave enough to hang are treated to views of mountains and valleys unlike any others. This trail includes lots of cobblestone and waterfalls which at times makes the road slippery when making sharp turns. This trail was originally designed as a mule route over 250 years ago as a way to link Curitiba with the coast.

5. Pacific Coast Highway (California State Route 1)

Pacific Coast Highway, also known as California State Route 1 was built in 1934 and stretches about 550 miles. If you only want to travel half that amount, traveling from Monterey South to Santa Barbara is about 240 miles. Traveling north to south is ideal because you will see the ocean the entire road. All along this trail are plenty of restaurants, surf shops, and boutiques. Two common areas you will come across are the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and Huntington Beach.

Every town you pass along the way has its own character and unique restaurants, shops, and sceneries. Some places you’ll see along the way are Red Canyon, Calf Creek Falls, Burr Trail, Hogback, and Bryce Canyon National Park.
