|"I wanted to thank you and your staff for allowing me to rent the Honda Africa Twin which resulted in a fantastic trip. We camped 8 nights and the Africa Twin was flawless the entire time, no problems whatsoever while exploring Oregon. The machine is perfect for the type of riding we performed on pavement, improved roads, dirt roads, rain and even little of an ATV trail. Smooth linear power and with the traction control and ABS turned off the power was predictable; didn’t disappoint. I have conducted a half dozen fly and rides all over the country and your process was by far the easiest, your rental program is five stars. I wish you well with the growth of your Bend store and I will be back maybe for the Washington BDR or maybe some type of Alaska or South America trip."|
-Despite the tragic amount of wild fire activity we had around the Pacific Northwest in late 2020, Brant Hill from Alabama was still able to make use of our Oregon U.S. motorcycle rental fleet on an Africa Twin Adventure Sports for a couple of weeks. Thanks for sharing Brant, and come back anytime!
|"What a great experience! If you are looking to "try before you buy" or need a do anything motorcycle for an adventure, this is the place to go. The Ride Adventures team is professional and friendly. There are no egos here. The bikes are immaculate and perform as they are supposed to. It was easier than renting a car, and way more fun because its a motorcycle! I will be using them again in the future."|
-Our sincere thanks to Dan Wellisch from right here in beautiful Bend, Oregon where our Oregon U.S. motorcycle rental fleet is based. Glad if you enjoyed, Dan, and RIDE on!
|"Even now I’m still remembering the experience with great joy. Crossing the borders was straightforward, the sights were amazing, and the motorcycle carried me reliably everywhere. I had room for everything I needed and made goal every day. Cannot wait for my calendar to line up to do another trip in the area soon."|

|"This is the second time that I have hired bikes from RIDE Adventures for a trip. The first was a ride up through Patagonia and the latest from Oregon, through Canada and on up through Alaska - some 6,500kms.
I cannot recommend Eric and his team at RIDE Adventures more highly. Great people to deal with - honesty, integrity, reliability, well maintained bikes that are comprehensively kitted out………and importantly people that ride themselves and understand that things do not always go to plan and will work with you to help get things sorted whatever they are and wherever you are.
Thanks Eric - you guys are simply awesome!"
-Mark Stewart from Australia on the heels of a successful ride to Alaska with his friend Phil, and our Oregon-based motorcycle rentals. A pair of Africa Twin's, 2 experienced riders, the Pacific Northwest, British Columbia, Alberta, the Yukon, and all the moose, elk, bears, and other wildlife along the way, quite a journey a long time in the making. Just loved this picture as two voyagers were headed out of the shop that day. Come again, guys!
"Hi RIDE Adventures,

-Minh Tran from Vietnam after 15 days of riding across the U.S. on an BMW R1200GS. His first time riding in the U.S., all part of an architectural research project, and meeting friendly Americans along the way!
"Well, the trip came to an end today. Pulled in at 3:00 showing 1475 miles. I can't wait to start looking through all the pictures and videos. Really want to thank you guys for an incredible time! I could not have asked for a better time. Chad...you and Ernie are top notch tour guides and photographers...thank you!"

TRANS WISCONSIN ADVENTURE TRAIL DUAL SPORT MOTORCYCLE TRIP
Home to a short riding season due to long & tough winters, the State of Wisconsin has some great summertime dual sport motorcycle riding for us, and the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail is the best way to experience it!
This 3-Day adventure ride takes us through a mix of pavement, dirt, sand, gravel, and mud from the Illinois border to Lake Superior. At times within sight of the great Mississippi River, winding through tiny towns, and taking advantage of multiple viewpoints, we enjoy various State and National Forests along the way. With the opportunity to actually "dip" your bike into the frigid waters of Lake Superior at the finish, this ceremonious location still allows many riders to ride home in time for work on Monday.Contact us for more tour information.
Day 1 (Thursday night)
All riders arrive in Galena, Illinois where your hotel room awaits you and we'll have a pre-trip meeting to and cover any questions riders have.
Day 2 (Friday)
Rise and shine, nice and early...there's a long ride ahead! Our adventure starts with rolling hills, pavement, and the easiest of the gravel riding spread throughout the day. Crossing the Mississippi River and heading briefly into Iowa, the area of Prairie du Chien will serve as one of our thru points on the way to the Black River Falls area. The best part of the first day just might be that the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail gets even better from here on!
Day 3 (Saturday)
With almost 2 more degrees of latitude already behind us, we're likely to be feeling some extra cold descending upon us from Canada. Using the Clark County ATV trails and a mix of other unique backroads, about 80% of our day will be spent off-pavement on the way to the Hayward and Clam Lake area of northern Wisconsin. Riding under tree canopy like this is an absolute treat that too few adventure riders get to enjoy!
Day 4 (Sunday)
Although reservations might not even be possible, we'll still enjoy a late breakfast from the enormously popular "Delta Diner" and experience one of northern Wisconsin's most unique and popular culinary options. Mostly sand-riding will make out the remainder of this half-day ride, as we charge closer to "Wisconsin's northernmost post office" in the town of Cornucopia. With the chance to touch the frigid waters of Lake Superior at our ultimate moment, if you're like most riders, you'll want to turn around and ride the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail back home!
