About Us

The Riding Obsession is an ever developing online venue for motorcycle enthusiasts who enjoy responsibly spirited riding along routes less travelled. Trip planning, product reviews, general maintenance, modification techniques and third party solutions are all included under one mutually understood domain. We're all equally obsessed!

The definition of sport touring motorcycles remains an openly respectable debate. If your motorbike "looks Lamborghini, rides Cadillac" and is fully equipped for a cross-country journey, our articles are likely for you. Even if otherwise, we regularly publish all-inclusive, universally applicable information for the bettering of general motorcycle knowledge. Our resident authors cover a wide range of experience/expertise within this niche area of motorcycling. In an effort to grow while helping the ST community, guest content is invited.

General discussion and problem solving resources may be introduced through article comments. Our members area provides customizable interaction, catering to riders and wrenchers alike. Register today, explore the web tools and configure each to your liking!
