    I've got an extra bedroom w/a queen bed and a crash room upstairs w/a full size bed. Garage space for bikes. No need to camp! I do have a dog who sheds so if you're allergic, my place may not be ideal for you.

    We've just recently got a camp in the Ocala National Forest about 5 miles north of Salt Spring and 15 miles south of Palatka. Plenty of places to camp or throw down a mattress. We've got a few air mattresses.

    WARNING: 2.5 miles of sand road to get in. For a consideration - we might come out with the truck to load you up and bring you in. :-)

    NOTE: We are there November 1 through early April ONLY. Summer months we're in NY state (same email).

    CONTACT US AHEAD OF TIME! Internet reception is poor until we hookup with a satelite. Give us time to get your message when we go to town, which might take a few days.

    Yo dudes! I'm located just East of Albuquerque in Tijeras, NM 87059. My cabin and workshop are about 25 minutes from downtown ABQ so if you're passing through, its a nice way to avoid the traffic (and heat).

    Plenty of good riding nearby I can point you towards.

    I've got a lift, fully stocked tool cab, and can do some broken down recovery if you're really screwed. I have plenty of 5 acres of tent space, 1200 square feet of shop space, and a spare loft, bed, and couch you're needing a roof.

    Just outside of Washington, D.C.; within an hour of Baltimore, MD, 30 minutes west of Annapolis.

    1 mile south of the DC Beltway (I-95).

    Plenty of tent space in the backyard, and hardwood floors/couchspace if you want to be indoors. Kitchen, Wi-Fi, Showers, Laundry, Kegerator.

    Garage with room for extra bikes, and a tool kit to fix all but the worst situations.

    It's best to both PM me and email me.

    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.

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

    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:deal. 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.

    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 :clap (thanks starbuck) the beer is definitely on me :beer

    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

    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. Now I ride a 2012 Kawasaki Voyager as my city/intercity/road option while a have a 2012 yamaha S10 for doing trips up north.
    look me up if you're visiting PAKISTAN.
    You can check my website zoeed.com or go to facebook.com/inline4bikes 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 won't be able to give a room in my house because its too small to host live in guests, I will still be honored to be host to you. You can send me an email: sums_boy @ hotmail.com and I would be happy to book cheap yet good, hotels/rooms on your behalf. Additionally you can send in any equipment/tires etc. to my address if you plan to ride light by mailing what is not needed to a further location
    Additionally I will be glad to get your bike serviced and washed, free of charge. Can make arrangements for any repairing/maintenance that may be needed on your bike

    PM, shoot me an e-mail to mart3303@bellsouth.net or give me a call at 678-739-8059 to get addy.
