| We have lots of dreams for motorcycle
travel. And I fully accept that we can't do them all. As I've now
achieved AARP status, I am even more aware of the limits of time
and human biology.
I've listed my motorcycle dreams here because - well, I sometimes forget great ideas for motorcycle travel.
My motorcycle travel dreams:
A lot of dreams, I know. More than I can do in the next 20 years, I know. But if you don't make a plan to travel - if you don't approach it as something you really are going to do, if you, instead, wait for the time and money for it to happen somehow, it will never happen.
My husband, Stefan Dietz, an experienced adventure motorcycle traveler, designs and sells aluminum top boxes and side panniers. They are tough, light-weight, affordable, German-designed, made in the USA & available in custom sizes.
This small top box is 20 liter (5.3 gallon)
400 x 250 x 200 mm
1.6 mm (1⁄16") thick aluminum
All boxes and panniers are available in custom sizes.
In 2015, we spent two weeks via motorcycle, mostly in British Columbia, but including Hydar, Alaska (Stewart-Cassiar Highway and the Alaska Highway).
In 2014, we toured large parts of Utah, Nevada & Oregon.
In 2013, we didn't go anywhere (sad face).
In 2012, our two-week trip was to Northern California, Nevada, and Southwestern Oregon (including the Alvord Desert).
In 2011, it was to Yellowstone National Park (and large parts of Montana, Idaho and Oregon).In 2010, we took two long trips, one to the "Lost Coast" of California, and another to Canada (Alberta and British Columbia, Jasper, Banff & Kootenay National Parks) and Glacier National Park.
