About This Site - The Riding Obsession is an ever developing online venue for motorcycle enthusiasts who enjoy responsibly spirited riding along routes less travelled.
Sport Touring Defined: A Motorcycle Genre - The sport touring motorcycle classification is vague because the term can't be derived from a bike or its rider independently. You gotta have both!
Sport Touring Motorcycle History - I'm not sure why the editor asked me to write this but I suspect it's because I'm the resident 'Old Dude' and have been riding for quite a bit longer.
Sport Touring Versus Adventure (ADV) - I noticed that my friends seemed to be more comfortable on their ADV motorcycles, needing fewer stops during long rides and not stretching as often.
Support T.R.O. - If you enjoy putting this site's ingredients to use, great! All of its contents will remain free for public viewing. That will never change.
