Ultra Portable Cooking Options to Take with You on the Road

There's nothing better than hopping on your motorcycle and heading down the road for a long trip. Maybe you'll meet up with some biker friends. Maybe you'll drive across several states to see the sights. Maybe you'll just ride out and see where the road takes you.

While you'll need enough gear to keep you well-fed and well-clothed on the road, you don't want to become overloaded. After all, you chose your motorcycle for a reason. Fortunately, there are a number of ultra portable cooking options that meet both criteria. If you're heading out to a long rally or just want to take a road trip, consider some of these ultra portable cooking options to take with you on the road:

Adventures of a Woman Motorcyclist, Summer 2012

MISSRIDER Conquers Central America

My 15,000 mile/24,140 km ride to Central America was full of excitement and hardship. From the accidents to the good times, it was an amazing trip overall. Along the way I encountered bugs, cows, monkeys, machetes, donkeys, volcanoes, coconuts, mountains and much more. It was a hell of a ride from Boston Massachusetts to the Panama Canal and back alone in 60 days. Some people call it the ride of a lifetime. I call it just another ride in Madeleine’s life.

The Mine in the Mojave

One man’s search for self-worth, self-identity and a self-serve gas station in the states that accepts Canadian debit cards.

Story by Vincenza

Dedicated to all the insects we have loved and lost.

Once upon a time a teacher in elementary school told me that all great stories begin with ‘once upon a time’ – which is the only reason this story does. It was a deep dark winter’s night as I sat at the kitchen table of my poorly illuminated little apartment thumbing the pages of a tattered local newspaper that was dated 4 months prior – during a time when the sun still stood proudly in the sky well past 9pm and I didn’t rely on dried pieces of wood to feed the flames that provided me with both heat and light.

Lake Superior Circle Tour

Story by Dustin Woods Photos by Dustin Woods and Alexe Sawicki

Whenever and wherever riding enthusiasts congregate and discuss the best places to ride, the old standards like the Pacific Coast Highway, Cabot Trail and Deal’s Gap come up often. I recently started hearing about another one lately that had me intrigued - The Lake Superior Circle Tour. The subject of perhaps the most famous Canadian ballad of all time, Gordon Lightfoot’s song about an ill-fated ship named the Edmund Fitzgerald and its 29 crew members warns of the peril such a treacherous body of water can hold.

The Hamilton Hottie & Lady Luck

Honda Hawk NT650 GT

It happens all the time. You pick your destination, spend copious amounts of time planning your route, but never end up sticking to it. Maybe, like me, you already have the route memorized, but never end up riding it. Whatever the case, there are some recurring themes in the adventures of the happy motorcyclist: getting lost, meeting friends, something inevitably going wrong, and beautiful women never far from the saddle.

The Call of the Road

Just because a blog isn't participating in #29in29, doesn't make it uncool. For motorcycle blogs which retell the planning and riding of some seriously long motorcycle road trips, a daily blog post just doesn't make sense. MISSRIDER is one example (see: Woman Rides Her Motorcycle Alone Across The United States, and Female Motorcyclist Retells Travelling Across the USA).

Another site that doesn't need to update to stay awesome? The Call of the Road. One of those ride of a lifetime stories, The Call of the Road tells the story of an 8 week, 9,000+ mile ride from Florida to Alaska. This week Circus Boy Nathan proudly showed his new adventure trailer video. Catch it here.

Woman Rides Her Motorcycle Alone Across The United States

Woman Rides Her Motorcycle Alone Across The United States

Whether its the freedom, the machine, or the woman herself, everyone can appreciate something of beauty in a woman riding her motorcycle. For some women, a ride around town, or even the state just isn't enough. On July 4th, 2011, Madeline "MISSRIDER" Velazquez set out on the ride of a lifetime: travelling across the United States by motorcycle, all alone, aboard her Triumph Bonneville. She was kind of enough to take a moment to answer some of our questions and tell us about her trip.

MAC Rally of Hope

Canada, the world’s second largest country, spans six timezones and thousands of kilometres. From Rockie Mountains to Prairies, Borreal Plains to Mixwood Greenbelt, Ocean to Ocean, who wouldn’t want to cross Canada on a motorcycle? That was the question asked to me by Ian of the MAC Rally of Hope. In 2010 the rally raised $88,000 for the Breast Cancer Foundation. This year the rally has riders travelling across Canada with their sights set on raising over $100,000, all while exploring the great white north on their iron steeds.
