Don't waste your valuable two-wheeled vacation. Instead, let "Great American Motorcycle Tours" be your guide. Gary McKechnie has spent years exploring the nation by bike, and these are his top rides, from the rocky New England coast to the wide-open West. McKechnie covers popular rides through Hudson River Valley, Amish Country, the Smoky Mountains and Georgia Hills, Washington State, the Pacific Coast, and everything in-between. In this fourth edition of his best-selling guide, McKechnie includes new rides covering the road from Kansas to Nebraska, Texas Hill Country, Michigan, and parts of Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, as well as tips on side trips, scenic stops, and watering holes. McKechnie also provides advice on packing, equipment, road conditions, rider-friendly attractions, and lists of conveniently located motorcycle shops along the way. An extensive appendix features essential websites that help riders find rallies, rental and touring companies, and motorcycle clubs.
