The northeasternmost state in the country, Maine’s rugged coastline and mildly mountainous interior provide a foundation for some of the best motorcycle roads in the Eastern United States. Add in the dense forests that cover more than three-quarters of the state’s territory, along with the many lakes and waterways found within, and you have some downright gorgeous scenery to pair with your twisting and undulating roads.
If riding in Maine, simply exploring the coast or heading for the hills can be a fun way to stumble across some fun motorcycle roads, but why roll the dice when you can be pointed directly to the top motorcycle routes in the state? Our goal is to make planning and logging your next ride as easy as possible. The REVER App is free to use and makes riding a state’s best motorcycle roads as simple and browsing routes and selecting what looks best to you. Then just gas up and go! Create new routes, log your rides and share with friends all within the app. Want even more planning and tracking tools at your disposal? Upgrade your account to REVER Pro for features like turn-by-turn + voice navigation, 3D animated route exploration, weather radar + alerts, and much more. Learn about everything that REVER and REVER Pro can offer you when it comes to planning and logging your next motorcycle ride or trip.
Due to the simple fact that Maine is the northeasternmost state in the US, the weather is going to be much colder year-round than most other areas of the country. Winter storms and bitterly cold temperatures pretty much limit the riding season to the warmest months of the year. The good news is that when the riding season does come around, the weather is just about perfect! In terms of gear, an appropriate setup for most of the riding season would consist of a base layer, a summer jacket/pant, and of course a rain layer for those afternoon showers that are so common in The Pine Tree State. If riding during the spring or fall, packing in an insulative mid-layer and wearing long underwear is definitely a good idea.
Maine is home to a number of unique destinations and attractions. If you’re looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the state, top off your tank and head for Acadia National Park. One of the country’s most popular national parks, Acadia NP is revered for its picturesque headlands and impressive biodiversity. 27 miles of historic motor roads provide a great way for you to experience the park on your motorcycle. Another one of Maine’s worth-visiting natural attractions is Baxter State Park. Home to Mount Katahdin, which at 5,269ft is Maine’s highest mountain, Baxter State Park is a permanent wilderness preserve holding over 200,000 acres of land in the very heart of the state. Some of Maine’s noteworthy historical and cultural attractions include Fort Williams and it’s over 200 year old lighthouse, the Old Port of Portland (one of the first ports established in New England), and the Maine Maritime Museum where you can view an extensive collection of boats and artifacts that illustrate Maine’s connection to the sea throughout the years. Speaking of the sea, Maine is well-known for some of the best seafood in the country, so don’t pass up the Lobster!
