road trip resources ?

Postby robinasq » Wed Jun 17, 2015 7:58 am



I am planning to ride from Boston to Western Michigan this summer. My route will be scenic roads close to I 90, rt 6, 86, 27, 131; through Albany, Binghamton, Warren, Erie, Cleveland, Toledo, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids.
I am looking for motorcycle shops along the way, in case I need something. Any suggestions would be appreciated .
Thanks in advance,
Robin 8-)

your best bet would be do a "Bing" search for all the motorcycle shops along your trip route so you'll know where all of them are along your way.

My wife and I are currently doing a road trip around the States and what I would suggest is that if you are going to look at shops along the way, make sure they are still operating.
We had a problem and needed some thing and called the Honda agent that was listed on google in that area and it was no longer a Honda dealer at all.........a little annoying.

You could bookmark this page.
It's the page by Mother Honda to look up a dealer by City, State / Zip / or Name.
They probably update their dealers on this quicker than Google or Bing.

It also doesn't show just the big dealers, but lists smaller ones as well, giving operating hours and links to their individual websites if available.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
