Rt66 copyWelcome to BackroadTraveler.net. My name is Craig Gephart.  I am a husband, father, musician, photographer, motorcyclist, and TRAVELER!  I am developing this website to serve as an outlet for my “photographer-motorcycling-traveler” side to share with others who may also share one or more of those interests.  If you find yourself dreaming of motorcycle travel, this is the place for you!

As I develop the site, I will add personal reviews of destinations, places to eat, places to stay, reviews of products I have used, and more! While I won’t publish updates to this site with any sort of regularity I am striving to grow this site into a resource that can be useful to others.  If you would like to be notified when something new is posted, I recommend you subscribe to the site so you can be notified via email.

Keep the shiny side up!

Biker’s Prayer

May the sun rise in front of me, the rain fall behind me, and the wind follow me.
May the Angels guard my travels for they know what is ahead of me.
Keep me safe through rolling hills and swirling turns.
Let the eagle guide me to the mountain tops.
Let the moon’s light guide me through the night.
Lord, thank you for letting me be a biker.
