Tacoma, WA

Tacoma, WA-- seven minutes from I-5. Three bedroom home in the suburbs. Close to supermarkets, Home Depot, Tacoma Screw (nut & bolt superstore), South Sound BMW, DMC Sidecars, and dealers for KTM, Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha, etc. Also close to Port of Tacoma for importing/exporting bikes by ship. Also no problem picking up or dropping off at SeaTac airport.

Amenities-- basic garage and metric hand tools; floor jack; flat bed trailer; spare beds--one queen and two singles, plus a sofa so I can host groups of 4 no problem; fenced backyard big enough for 2 small tents but so far all my tent space guests slept in the house; wi-fi of course.

Services-- if you need something for your trip or your bike, you can order it online and have it delivered here. I'll hold it for you. I'm retired, so usually available to help out inmates wherever whatever.

Warning: must like dogs!

I usually log in every day so send me a PM. If that doesn't work, call me -- 253.565.nineninetwosix -- and leave a voice message. If you want me to text you and not call you because you're riding, say that in your message. But I'm not listing my cell phone number here because I'm terrible at checking it.

new brunswick

spot 1: Just a bit north of Shediac New Brunswick. tent space available in my yard. email me:

Alt spot 1. If you want extra private, or if you are more than 1 tent, there are a few clearings in the woods (previous clear cuts) that I can direct you to; they are not far (5minutes away) off Hwy 11. There is a mild (easy) ditch crossing to get there and you have to cross it. Here, you could make a campfire and stay a few nights. Although rare at this spot, bears are possible however moose are common.

I can also lead you to a nice waterfront-beach front property in the area.

spot 2 Shemogue NB. (on the way to PEI, Prince Edward Island) Just let me know that you're planing on staying or that you have been there if I miss your request. No problem for 1 night, pack it in, pack it out, strictly no fires. You will have to ride through tall grass to get to it (road is overgrown and seldom used-but it's there and safe) Off hwy 15 Shemogue NB. here are the coordinates. 46.165404,-64.188471 No house there. turn off the hwy into a driveway 2 houses to left of lot, then immediately right onto a grassy road, (this is the old hwy, you are not tresspassing) watch culvert is broken at one spot. At end of road, cross fence (my fence) and pitch tent in previously cleared area. (not the field to the left of right of the road, that's the neighbours place.) Punch in coordinates, you'll find it! It's across the street from Twin Birch lodge.
The road to paradise is UN-paved!
go for it! Life's too short to think twice!

Santa Cruz welcomes you

I'm on the Cali coast, 70 miles south of San Francisco. I have floor space/couch space in my house, no need to do the tent thing unless you wish. In which case you can put up a tent on my deck..I'm in Scotts Valley, which is just inland of Santa Cruz by about 8 miles. I'm about an hour north of Monterey, which is your gateway to the Big Sur stretch of Highway 1.

Garage available, but I don't have it set up for advanced bike stuff; the basics are here. I have a small motorcycle lift and basic tools, but you'll have to know what you are doing. There's a good Beemer repair shop just a mile away. Help with Japanese bikes will be a bit further, but within thirty minutes.

I'm a fireman, so my schedule is a bit different, but send me an email and I'll help if I can. Happy to help with your travels-I've been a guest of others many times!

We welcome all active contributing ADV community members to come and stay with us in Sydney.

In 2010 I spent 6 months riding North America and it's time to repay all the ADV hospitality 'debits' I accrued from fellow inmates.

Our home is located in Alexandria, 5km south from 'downtown' Sydney and a handy location for sightseeing and easy access to Sydney Airport.

Be aware we live on a fairly busy road if you're a light sleeper, BYO sleeping bag and air mattress and you can crash in our home office. Don't forget your dirty clothes to laundry, plenty of internet and bicycles to tour the city. Twist our arm and you might get a tour guide for a day.

Buses to the city are on our doorstep or a 10 minute walk to Redfern train station, but if you'd like some exercise, take one of our push bikes complete with helmet and lock - a great way to see the city and harbour.

There are pubs on every corner near by and they also offer good value accommodation if you're in need of a longer stay more than one week.

Our hospitality comes at a cost... you'll have to share some stories of your adventure over a beer or two !

We look forward to meeting you,
Geoff & Gus.

I live about 9 miles north of Sioux City, Iowa in the Loess Hills region that form the western border with Nebraska and South Dakota. I'm available via cell# 712)251-5421, or landline 712)255-4461. I teach high school, so I'm discouraged from using my phone between the hours of 7 AM and 4 PM mon-fri. Other than that I'll likely answer.
I have a basement workout room that's available along with a bathroom and shower. Of course you're welcome to set up your tent if you prefer. I've also got an above ground pool in the event you want to take a refreshing dip. If there's something wrong with your bike I might be able to help out, but anything major and you'd better bring the requisite knowledge, as I'm a luddite when it comes to anything too technically sophisticated.

I am in town and have tent space, a garage with most any typical tool you could want (and access to anything I don't have), and depending on timing probably a spare bedroom in some of the best riding country around:

Charlottesville, Virginia

I'm just 20 min from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and close to downtown if you are taking a layover day.

Finally, since I found my house through another ADVrider member I contacted through the tent space list when I was moving a few years ago (thanks starbuck) the beer is definitely on me

There is a monthly adv movie night in town at the local independent BMW moto shop the date is a moving target but you might luck out.

PM or email for info

Cool2 Live-in room space

I am a fellow biker, I previously owned a CBR600RR '09 which I used as my transport to tour Pakistan for three years in a row. Covered 49,000kms on this baby without any issues.

look me up if you're visiting PAKISTAN.
You can check my website for further verifications
I had earlier posted about a room available for travelers. I have since moved to a different place and hence though I may not be able to give you a room in my house, I will still be honored to be host to you. The room available now will be booked and paid for in a local hotel. At cycle sports, it is our way of showing hospitality to travelers going through Pakistan.
Additionally we will be glad to service your bike and wash it for you, free of charge.

-Bed space with air conditioner/heater
-Shower hot/cold

Everything on the house.

Happy to help. Do call in, will be able to hook you up for any mechanical assistance or otherwise as well.
