The Expresso Riders were
founded when a pair of couples that lived nearly 100 miles apart began
taking rides together on their BMW motorcycles. They used local coffee
houses as their rally point; hence, the play on words. "Expresso Riders"
is a deliberate misspell of espresso, while also giving a nod to
our "express" form of transportation.
The group has grown to several
like minded souls, couples, and friends.
Far from being just a group
that likes to ride to Starbucks (but we can tell you where the good ones
are, and which back road to take to get there!), we cover many of the
46,000 miles of our Northern CA home stomping grounds, and much of the
Western U. S. for that matter. It's about the friends, and it's about
the ride, with an occasional stop to take it all in! We are a
growing group of friends that prefers to ride with our wives (both 2-up,
and 1+1), or serious
other - singles are also welcome!
We enjoy staying in hotels
after a long ride, quality victuals, local brews, belly laughs from
sarcastic humor - and an occasional cigar.
If this sounds good to
you, check out the calendar and send an email (or check
