    It’s Time You Did Some Motorcycle Touring

    This is my actual, first bike. How young was I when I was that little? My mom would complain that I was on it so much the two of us would somehow become attached if I wasn’t careful. More than 45 years after I started riding this little thing, I’m still on two wheels at every opportunity. But if there ...

    Motorcycling Along Utahs Highway 12

    A Love Letter To Our Favorite Motorcycle Road This video is something totally different. This is the road from whence CanyonChasers was born. Think of this as a love letter to our favorite stretch of tarmac. Utah’s majestic Highway 12 and The Burr Trail. Way back in the early ’90s, we would chase down every canyon from here to there ...

    British Columbia | September 2012

    A Sad Farewell This was a very different trip for us, devoid of much of the excitement that traditionally comes along with a 10-day vacation. This time we were saying goodbye to a dear old friend. While Kris and I were newlyweds we found a small black and white puppy in a cardboard box in the dead of winter. Kris ...

    Returning to the Dominican Republic

    In 2009 when we first visited the Dominican Republic with MotoCaribe, we tried to get our fellow CanyonChasers to join us. Despite our pleadings none felt comfortable enough with the unknown to take the chance. Upon our return and the many stories we came home with managed changed everyone’s mind.

    Motorcycling to Sturgis but not for Sturgis

    Way back when, when Kris and I rode chrome laden bikes with lots of rake, fancy paint and raucous exhaust systems, we took a ride to Sturgis South Dakota for the annual Bike Rally. Don’t believe that we had our humble roots in cruiser-dom, well, ha! Look at these old photos, taken exactly 10 years prior. Skip Ahead Monday – Tuesday ...

    Caribbean Moto Dreams

    I can honestly say that I never expected to ride motorcycles in the Caribbean, and I can honestly say that I never gave the small island nation of the Dominican Republic a second thought, I mean, doesn’t is share a border with Haiti? But motorcycling is all about getting past our out biases, right. Haiti and the Dominican Republic share ...

    Wyoming, Montana and Beartooth Pass

    Four Days and 11,000 Feet. It has been over ten years since we decided to make Beartooth Pass a destination. The last time Kris and I were astride cruisers on our way to Sturgis, South Dakota. On that trip Beartooth Pass was so crowded with the annual pilgrimage to Sturgis that we never felt like we got to enjoy the ...
