It seems like every dude in their mid-twenties to early thirties that I talk to wants to get a motorcycles (myself included). But we don’t want the classic Harley Davidson hogs that we saw cruising next to us during a family road trip when we were kids — nor do we want to emulate the slightly overweight, slightly scary old dude dressed in leather that we saw riding them.
Blame it on hipsters or the resurgence of vintage-cool in the past several years, but guys today want sleeker, lighter, and more stylish bikes with vintage vibes that matches their personal aesthetic. And for those with a motorcycle license craving a classic, open road American experience who are A) bikeless or B) live east of the Rockies and don’t have the time to ride their own bike all the way out west, the Roadery is for you.
Based in LA, The Roadery rents out vintage inspired bikes and pairs them with highly curated and customizable self-guided tours through some of the American West’s most inspiring scenery and national parks. Different itineraries last anywhere from two to 12 days and begin in LA, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Portland.
I recently wrong an article for Outside magazine that’ll tell you everything you need to know about planning a trip with The Roadery, so check it out!
