A Motorcycle Ride You Will Never Forget
My wife and I spent a week in Utah. We drove exactly, to the mile, 1400 miles round trip by motorcycle from Orange County California where we live. We stayed in Brian Head during the late summer and went to 2 incredible places that you must see in your life time. I tell you this because there is different ways to travel, but probably the†most fun†is by motorcycle or motor scooter.
Now I will tell you why. The 2 places we visited besides the beautiful city and surroundings of Brian Head were Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. Oh my gosh! Unbelievable beauty that unless you see it you wouldn't believe that it's real. This is one of the most gorgeous sites we have ever seen. When you view it from a motorcycle or motor scooter it is twice the view.
Now you might be saying, I don't want to ride 1400 miles on a motorcycle or a motor scooter from where I live. Well, that's why you have the option of loading your motorcycle or motor scooter in the back of a truck or trailer and hauling it there and then take the incredible ride once you get there. I'm telling you, you will never forget it. The key is to go in the late summer time or early fall around October. Obviously check the weather before you go. As you might be aware, Brian Head is a winter ski and snow board resort so during the winter time they get a ton of snow. Riding in the extreme cold or with snow on the ground is definitely not advisable as it can be very dangerous. †Oh, by the way, what if you don't own a motorcycle or motor scooter. You can rent them very inexpensively. Or if you are in the market for a motorcycle or motor scooter they are great to own as they will save you lots of money on fuel, especially in today's economy.
Make sure that you take along the proper equipment if you plan to transport your motorcycle or motor scooter. You will need a ramp for loading and unloading, tie downs to safely strap down your vehicle and a cover to keep it from getting weathered, scratched or dirty. Remember, if you are transporting your ride to make sure that you stop periodically and check your tie downs for tension as they could loosen from the ups and downs of highway travel.
A motor scooter by the way comes in both gasoline powered and electric. Keep in mind that a gas powered motor scooter can travel at higher speeds usually, but both will go fast enough for your site seeing if you are transporting them from another location. Unlike a motorcycle the power range on motor scooters will probably be substantially less as most scooters will range from 49cc up to about 250cc for the more popular ones. Obviously if your ride will be as long as my wifeís and mine you will need to transport your ride if it is a motor scooter as a ride of that distance would not be advisable without a motorcycle.
Pull up some pictures on the internet of Bryce and Zion and then plan out an unforgettable trip of a lifetime. You won't regret it.
