Welcome to “Motorcycle Trip Planning.” This Web site is dedicated to helping motorcyclists plan safe, fun, and exciting multi-day trips. Whether you are a veteran or a “newby,” whether you ride a Harley-Davidson, a BMW, a Ducati, or any other brand of motorcycle, we will help you plan better trips – trips that you will look back at with great memories for years to come…
Who are “we” you may ask? Primarily, Alain Zarinelli. I have been riding motorcycles since I was 16 – for over 35 years now. I have planned annual motorcycle trips (or ‘tours’) both in Europe and in the United States ever since I got my motorcycle license.
I toured the Swiss, Austrian, German, French, and Italian Alps. I toured the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana, the deserts and high plains in Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico, and the Sierras in California and Oregon, among other locales.
I have made many mistakes in my motorcycle trip planning, mistakes I can help you avoid. Besides me, I will also draw on fellow riders I have been touring with for years – each has a unique perspective, as well as specific skill(s), which will help you become a more rounded trip planner, and ultimately motorcyclist.
For some, motorcycle trip planning is a chore, for others it’s part of the fun. I like to plan my trips during the winter months when I cannot ride my motorbike. I enjoy this planning activity as it helps me bridge the ‘ride-less’ gap; for me the tour planning is an integral part of the trip.
