Introducing...the MotoQuest Diet!

motoquest logoYou are what you eat.

This was originally a metaphor to describe the effects of diet on overall health and well-being, but before we slide into a debate about which diet is better and what kind of foods we should be eating, we'd like to put our own twist on the saying:

If you are what you eat, then we motorcycling globetrotters are a whole lot of everything!

We field a lot of questions about food as we prepare our groups for international travel. A lot of first-time travelers are hesitant to tread into unfamiliar waters when it comes to dining on the road, but our response is usually, "did you come all the way here to eat food you normally eat?"

Cuisine is a massive part of the experience of world travel. Partaking in these meals puts you more in touch with different cultures, even if that sometimes means stepping outside of your comfort zone. More than just the food itself, there is something special about participating in the unique rituals and customs involved in dining in different countries. In fact, we prioritize dining so much in our trip planning that we have even modified our schedules to accommodate our dining plans!

From fine dining in world class restaurants to roadside carts doling out local delicacies, MotoQuest trips are full of culinary exploration. So with that we invite you to join us for a journey around the world in food, for a glimpse at what we like to call the International MotoQuest Diet.

Kicking things off right here in America, we take a look at our Trail of Lewis and Clark Adventure. For those riders who come to us from outside of the United States, this trip is full of amazing American fare! You will be hard-pressed to find better seafood than at Salty's on the Columbia. The stunning view of the mighty Columbia River certainly enhances the experience!

As we head south we arrive at Hell's Backbone Grill & Farm in Boulder, Utah, one of our restaurants of choice on our American Southwest Adventure. Enjoy this James Beard Award semifinalist's organic, locally produced and seasonal cuisine set against a beautiful backdrop of the mountains of southern Utah.

Fine dining is not the only way to enjoy eating, though. Sometimes you want your meal with a side of nostalgia, and Roy's Motel & Cafe off historic Route 66 is just the place! We visit this humble and historic diner in the town of Amboy, California on our Wonders of the West Adventure, and the 1950's era neon signs out front set the mood perfectly.
