Welcome to Steel Horse Journeys, a motorcycle travel blog. Here you can travel vicariously on my motorcycle adventures throughout the US and Canada. I’ll post day-by-day stories of my travel and include maps, photos, and more.
My name is Keith. While I grew up mostly in the Bay Area, these days I call Seattle home. I work with internet start-ups, typically building specialized support and service teams. Working with fast growing companies is intense and often 24×7. Resting between these opportunities is key.
To rest, I enjoy riding my 2013 BMW R1200RT to interesting and scenic places. Together we have traveled over 75,000 miles and counting!
Here are some of my recent and/or longer motorcycle adventures:
- 2018 Ride to Beartooth
- 2018 Ride to the Dalton
- 2016 Northern States Tour
- 2015 Trip to Hyder
- 2015 Southern States Tour
- 2014 Western States Tour

Keith is was really good to meet you here in Lewiston at Hells Gate State park. It was an interesting conversation we had about maps and GPS and many other things. I’m glad you decided to do the route from Asotin to Enterprise, the Rattlesnake will keep calling you back..
Hello, Just tell me, how many miles do you ride per year ? And how about the your bikes’ mileage ? Enjoy your journey 😊
It varies quite a bit. In 2014, it was about 16,000 miles. In 2015, it was roughly 22,000 miles. I expect about 12,000 miles this year.
