a ride from Virginia to Iowa and back (video)

I shot some video on a ride from Virginia to Iowa and back this past summer. There are 4 videos that cover the trip, and a written trip journal. Everything can be accessed from this web Page:

You are not the first person to recommend Rte 15. Sounds like a highway worthy of a visit. Thanks for the input.

seeking advice, eastern NY & PA

I'm planning a nice long ride this summer, and I need some help with the final phase of the trip. I'll be running east across northern New York State on highway 20. At some point, I'll need to turn south and head for Norfolk, VA. How would you suggest getting there from highway 20? I prefer to avoid...

trans-Canada motorcycle trip: VA (video + journal)

This is the last video in the series that shows the route my Gold Wing and I took from Oregon to Virginia this summer via southern Canada. In this last video, I return home through southern Virginia in weather that was less than inspirational. Since neither the weather nor the video was too exciting...

Re: trans-canada: breaking camp (video)

Nice video! There appears to be some kind of rack on the dash of the bike that has the camera bag and other stuff fastened to it. Can you provide any info on the "rack"? A problem I have on a cross country ride is keeping the camera handy. I like the note book right up front too. There is...

trans-Canada motorcycle trip: Ontario (video)

This is another video in the series that documents my motorcycle trip from Oregon to Virginia via southern Canada. In this video, I pass through the Canadian province of Ontario. The north shore of Lake Superior made for a great ride in July, but in January, I'm guessing not so much...

trans-canada: breaking camp (video)

I left my 1500 SE in Oregon last winter, and then rode it back to my home in Virginia this summer. Much of the trip was through Southern Canada, and it is really beautiful up there. I mostly camped at night during the trip, and every morning the "breaking camp" routine was pretty much the ...

Saskatchewan, Canada

I'm a USA rider planning a ride this summer across a portion of southern Canada (west to east). In the USA, I much prefer riding on highways than interstates. I understand that the Trans Canada highway is very similar to our interstate highways. So, I'm looking for options. I see that, between Medic...

Re: Virginia to Oregon ride (journal + videos)

I got to tell you, this is professionally amazing. Pretty sure you just inspired me to do something similar, yet not to this level. I have a trip to Laguna Beach, CA to Charleson, WV in a week. Very nicely done. Wow, I'm jealous. What a great time of year for a ride like that. Have a safe and enjoy...

Virginia to Oregon ride (journal + videos)

I had a nice ride in June from my home in Norfolk, Virginia to Portland, Oregon. I have put together a journal and some YouTube videos that document the ride. The link below should allow you to check out what ever portion of the trip you are interested in. N-joy. http://www.seattleboatguy.com/cycle/...
