Don’t Want to be Stuck Inside this Winter? Head to Big BendIf you read Brian Shaney’s recent article about dual sport riding in Big Bend, TX (Into the Great Wide Open, March/April 2014), then you know that the area offers a treasure trove of dirt roads to explore. SummerS in Big Bend are very hot, but winters, on the other hand are extremely mild and offer ideal weather for motorcycle touring. GSM MotoRent, a motorcycle rental company based in Townsend, TN, moves their bike fleet down to Terlingua, TX, from January 15th through March 15th every year to take advantage of the good weather. Terlingua is situated right between Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park in the heart of the region’s best riding. GSM MotoRent has a variety of 200cc to 650cc dual sports available, as well as maps and in-depth area knowledge.

With temperatures in the mid 70s and generally sunny skies, Big Bend is a great option for motorcyclists looking to escape winter’s grasp in the rest of the country. If you’re thinking of heading to Texas this winter, be sure to check out GSM MotoRent’s Fly and Ride package which includes lodging for five days and four nights, a rental car, and three days on a bike for around $700.
