Riding Solo - 6,000 Mile Motorcycle Adventure in the USA Backcountry
By Sterling Noren

         

Riding Solo is a video series about motorcycling alone in the USA backcountry.

The videos were filmed during a 6,000 mile/30-day solo ride in the summer of 2020 in locations including Arizona,
Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico. Each episode focuses on great motorcycling roads
(paved and dirt), camping, cooking and relaxing in scenic and remote locations.
The purpose of the series is to show viewers how easy it is to ride solo on a motorcycle adventure in the USA backcountry.

I was lucky enough to spend several weeks riding and camping in the USA Western regions from South to North including east to the border of AZ/NM in the south and Montana in the north. It is fantastic country to ride and see as long as you stay off the interstates.

I'm really enjoying watching this series, and it makes me want to hit the road again and go explore this beautiful country.     Thanks for posting it Rusty.

Thanks for the feedback, Pete!  :thumbs

I've been loving the quad copter footage, it's almost making me want to go out and buy one!!!

I do have one issue with the series though, each episode doesn't go long enough!!!

I like the short and punchy length of the episodes and the photogtaphy is great.    While they are a little bit "samey"  ie ride, and cook tea,  the viewer gets into the rhythm of the adventure with him.   Did you spot that he went from a Kermit Chair early in the trip, to a Helinox?

He must have heard you, StinkyPete! There's no cooking whatsoever in episode 16...  :rofl
