In 2020, Guy Pickrell won the Moto Guzzi “Spirit of the Eagle Rideaway competition. He dreamed up an epic 2,600-mile, 8-day, 7-state, 6-national-park adventure route.

Moto Guzzi gave Guy and his buddy Kit Klein use of two Moto Guzzi V85 TT adventure bikes and a $2,500 travel budget. They packed their gear, had Michelin Anakee Wild tires mounted on the bikes, and they hit the road.

Starting in Seattle, they rode east to Glacier National Park, south to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Flaming Gorge, Capitol Reef, and Grand Staircase-Escalante, and they finished in Las Vegas. Their route included paved sections like Going-to-the-Sun Road in Montana and unpaved tracks like Skyline Drive Scenic Backway in Utah.


Two buddies, two bikes, one big adventure. This is their story.
