We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for being part of this incredible experience and sincerely hope to see each of you out there on the open road.

We do not require our authors to be experienced writers or photographers. Our editors are bikers themselves and have experience working with first-time authors. We'll do everything we can to make this a smooth and pleasurable experience for you.

OpenRoadJourney is all about inspiring people to explore their surroundings by motorcycle. If you're a biker looking to to write about one of your adventures, please keep in mind that we do require 10-20 high quality photos with any write-up that we move forward with.

All payments are made via Paypal on completion of any article. Completion is determined when we have the final material in hand (after any requested edits) and the final high res photos.

In addition to the above, we also give all authors a 6 month Pro-membership upon receipt of any final edited article.

Note: Due to the tremendous popularity of this program, it may take us a while to get back to you and occassionally things fall through the cracks.
