About Our Selections

These selections considered ease of use, rideability, price, and how effective each motorcycle was achieving the stated goal of its class. We are confident that any of these bikes will be superb options for most riders.

To further define what we are meaning by a "Touring Motorcycle," any bike that is built with considerations for long-distance riding count. This is not necessarily limited to purely cruisers, as sport tourers and European adventure tour motorcycles also count.
