Excerpts of Travelogue, Riding in the USA Graeme explores the States as changing roads and places bring new adventures in differing weather, and happy company. Text and Photos by Graeme Lowen After last night’s fiasco trying to find camera and getting back to the motel, I did some more work with google and found a Walmart only 10 miles or so away that sells cameras. The stop at the gas station and its method of pre-pay was quite a novel experience. I was instructed by the young female assistant to put the cash into the machine , as much as I needed, hit enter and out came a receipt for the amount as well as a code number. I went out and filled the bike up and went back to get my change.

Motorcycling Arizona’s Mountains Story and photos by Koz Mraz www.kozmoto.com Arizona has incredible geological diversity that lie between Flagstaff’s Humphries Peak, at 12,637 feet to the Grand Canyon, the Red Rocks of Sedona to lush Verde Valley.

WE RIDE TOGETHER to do our little bit #LeaveEveryPlaceBetter Sunday, September 26 In April 2011, ten years ago, the first ONE RIDE kick-started what has now become one of the largest annual celebratory rides of Royal Enfield enthusiasts. With no specific route or destination in mind, some on their own, others with friends – ride freely – purely for the pleasure of motorcycling on their Royal Enfields. In 2021, a world greatly changed, a world that needs each one of us to be more mindful, we are shifting gears from a ride of just pure pleasure to riding for awareness around responsible travel. A step change that will enable us to continue to discover the spaces we find energy, beauty, solace, and ourselves in. This One Ride the community of Royal Enfield riders can mobilize their strength to lead this change – towards “Responsible Travel“ by doing their little bit to #LeaveEveryPlaceBetter.

What can you give someone as a gift who deserves the world? An experience to remember. What kind of experience can you gift someone who loves to ride? You can rent a motorcycle for them in a beautiful place that they’ve never ridden—and plan some awesome routes.
