You're a rider ...an independent spirit who's reluctant to follow someone else's road map. But there are millions of miles of road to travel, and you could spend months searching for the best ones. Don't waste your valuable two-wheeled vacation on ordinary routes. Instead, let Gary McKechnie be your guide. He's spent years exploring the nation by bike, and he gives you his top 20 rides, from the rocky New England coast to the wide-open West. In this detailed update of his best-selling guide, McKechnie includes: tips on side trips, scenic stops, and watering holes; advice on packing, equipment, road conditions, rider-friendly attractions, and lists of conveniently-located motorcycle shops along the routes; on-the-road photographs and hand-drawn maps; and an extensive appendix featuring essential websites that help riders find rallies, rental and touring companies, and motorcycle clubs.
Gary McKechnie is a Florida native, a fourth-generation motorcyclist, a professional speaker, and founder of the Charles Kuralt Travel Society. His second edition of Great American Motorcycle Tours was the winner of the Benjamin Franklin Gold Award sponsored by the Publisher's Marketing Association, and the Lowell Thomas Silver Award sponsored by the Society of American Travel Writers.
