This is a repost of a story on 2strokebuzz, but I just enjoyed this so much I wanted to share it here.
Jeremy Clarkson being the motorcycle curmudgeon that he is, even he’s won over by the end of it. Honestly I struggle to come up with many places that’d be more appropriate or adventurous to see by scooter. I may have to add Vietnam to my own list of 2-wheel destinations. My list for now includes:
- All the national parks (Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, Grand Canyon, etc)
- Napa Valley in CA
- Rome, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, Sicily
- The Tour de France route
I realize that many of these places would be better explored on a proper motorbike rather than a scooter. I’m fine with that. I want a garage full of bikes and a yard full of dogs. Nothing like travel as a great excuse to buy a Triumph or a BMW motorcycle. Watching Long Way Down these past few days really has me itching for some adventure riding.
