Not to Be Missed Motorcycle Rides in Georgia

Travels with Harley

If you are on the hunt for great motorcycle rides in the South, Travels with Harley has a few suggestions that you may want to try. This week we are going to focus on the Peach State, otherwise known as Georgia.

The best motorcycle rides are usually off the beaten track. At least that is what Jim and I think. We have been on a few motorcycle rides where the only thing on the road was us and maybe a car or two the entire trip.

Fort McAllister State Park

We have done quite a few Travels with Harley motorcycle rides in Georgia and really enjoy the great scenery. The coastal area of the state gives riders plenty to look at with its beaches and beautiful marshland. Popular motorcycle destinations include Fort McAllister State Park and Savannah.

The Meridian Road Canopy Ride is gorgeous when it comes to beautiful motorcycle rides, and although there aren’t any roadside amenities, the scenery makes it well worth gassing up beforehand. Meridian Road starts out near Cairo, GA and takes you into Tallahassee Florida. If you enjoy hills and turns this is the ride for you as the road takes you through canopies of trees and plantations that you will not want to miss.

Tate House

If you enjoy historical landmarks, the 19-mile Tate to Dawsonville will take you through the historic town of Tate where you will drive right past the Tate House, which is 45 miles north of Atlanta. Colonial Sam Tate who was a land baron, philanthropist, and tycoon built the pink marble mansion in 1926. The Tate House is now one of the most sought after wedding venues in the south. The Tate to Dawsonville road features quite a few turns with some tight blind turns that are best suited for more experienced riders. This ride has some gorgeous views, but no amenities to speak of except for a couple of gas stations.

The 99 mile Scenic Route from Springfield to Augusta is stunning and begins at City Limit Customs in Springfield. You’ll ride over the Savannah River into South Carolina and continue until you head back into Augusta GA. On this trip, you will pass through plenty of plantations and dense forests so don’t forget your camera. The roads are mostly flat until you hit the 125 where there will be some small hills to contend with. The roads are all paved and although the amenities are sparse out of Springfield there are plenty of gas stations, restaurants and shops once you get to Augusta.

When it comes to motorcycle rides, the south has plenty. Next week Travels with Harley heads to Alabama for more great motorcycle rides in the south.

Awesome Harley Davidson Owners Group Events

I think I mentioned a few weeks ago about the New England Trailblazer Event we will be attending with the Harley Davidson Owners Group. Jim and I are really excited, which made me want to check out some of the other awesome Harley Davidson Owners Group Events events that happen in the United States.

Most people don’t know about Pin Stops. Pin Stops are available to Harley Davidson Owners Group. At Pin Stop, which is usually located at most of the H.O.G events, members can pick up free commemorative pins at selected Harley David motorcycle events. The only stipulation is that you must be a national member of the Harley Davidson Owners Group and visit the distribution center during the events hours.

Harley Davidson Owners Group Rallies are really fun and Jim and I have been to a few. We have met some great people who have become old and dear friends.

The Kentucky State Rally sounds like it would be a blast. Back to the Bluegrass goes from June 4 to June 7 and is located in Lexington, Kentucky. This H.O.G. Rally also includes scavenger hunts and guided rides. The H.O.G Meet and Greet is always a lot of fun as we get to meet up with old friends and make some new ones. I love checking out the vendors, as there always seems to be something that I want to buy. At the last H.O.G. Rally, I found a couple of really nice leather pieces that I fell in love with.

Doobie Brothers

If we had more time, we would love to register for the New York State Harley Davidson Owners Group Rally in July. The event is hosting a Peter Frampton, Doobie Brothers concert and I would love to see that. There is nothing better than rocking to the tunes that I grew up with. The event only lasts for two days, but it certainly packs in quite a few activities. Not only is there a distillery and wine tour, but the New York State Harley Davidson Owners Group Rally also includes a tour of the West Point Military Academy.

When Jim and I retire, we would like nothing more than to participate in some of the great events sponsored by the Harley Davidson Owners Group. I’m hoping that we can fit in one or two before our September New England Trailblazer Event.
