While we might like to think of ourselves as badasses on a vintage Harley-Davidson, the reality is that most people who own a motorcycle use it for touring around. Taking a motorcycle on an extended road trip is how bikes are used by most people in North America. Whether it is driving out to the Grand Canyon or the Jersey Shore, touring around on motorcycles is a popular activity. Clubs of motorcycle enthusiasts who enjoy touring across the country together are becoming more common place in communities large and small. Here is a list of the 10 best touring motorcycles available on the market today.
10. Kawasaki Voyager
Known as the “Big Kawi,” the Kawasaki Voyager has everything needed for a comfortable trek. For just under $20,000, people who own this motorcycle get comfortable seats for both the driver and a passenger, as well as ample wind protection from an oversized windshield and an impressive 1700 V-Twin engine that is as powerful as most Twin Cam engines found in competing Harley-Davidson bikes. This motorcycle also boasts a powerful stereo and cruise control, and has plenty of storage capacity for carrying people’s gear. Riders love the saddlebags on this motorcycle, and the top case is large enough for two full-face helmets. No wonder this motorcycle is popular with bike enthusiasts everywhere you go.
