Motorcycle Touring in the Southwest

The Region's Best Rides

Book Description

Forty classic rides through the region's quintessential scenes


Where better to partake in the pleasures of motorcycle touring—whether a Sunday afternoon ride with friends or a multiday adventure—than the Southwest, where one can do so all year round, often on roads that stretch out over stunning landscapes as far as the eye can see? Now, with Motorcycle Touring in the Southwest, bikers have an unparalleled guide describing forty classic rides across the region's quintessential scenes—including Utah, Southwestern Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and the Las Vegas area.

In friendly prose peppered with anecdotes and sidebars, Christy Karras and Stephen Zusy describe the routes—most representing about a day's worth of riding—and include a map for each, color photographs, and details aplenty on road conditions and terrain, interesting sites, amenities, and side trips.
