March is the beginning of the season when the flowers begin to open up. The days are longer and the evenings are warm enough for a light jacket. This time of the year really is the best for spring motorcycle rides.

Spring motorcycle rides

Blue Ridge Parkway-Virginia

The state for lovers, Virginia is simply stunning, especially for spring motorcycle rides. On this ride, you will see the Blue Ridge Mountains in full bloom during the spring. The parkway is quite long and at 469 miles, you may want to break it up a bit. You could start your adventure near Waynesboro, Virginia and spend a night in the Appalachian Mountains or make your way into the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina.

Stop by the Cherokee Nation’s Reservation where you can go fishing, look at native elk, or shop for Native American arts and crafts.

Spring motorcycle rides

Spring motorcycle rides really are the best, especially if you want to enjoy everything that Mother Nature has to offer. Spring is one of Travels with Harley’s favorite times of the year. Enjoy!

More Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida

motorcycle friendly restaurants Florida

With so many Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida, we decided to stick around and see what else we could find, and all I can say is that another road trip to Florida is definitely on the cards!

If you follow the Travels with Harley Blog, you will know that last week Jim and I highlighted some awesome Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida, but we have discovered there are many more little hidden treasures along the way.

motorcycle friendly restaurants Florida

The Sebring Diner is a great place to stop for breakfast and lunch and has great roads through the Sunshine States, “Citrus Country,” to get you there. Located at 4040 US Highway 27 South, the diner offers great value and plenty of motorcycle parking. The diner has a great counter reminiscent of the fabulous 50’s with menu items to match. I’m a stickler for homemade, especially when it comes to biscuits and gravy and this place looks like it has it all. Other breakfast and lunch favorites include the Corned Beef and Hash Omelet and the Open Face Meatloaf Sandwich.

Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants Florida

Located on N. Ozello Trail in Crystal River, Pecks Old Port Cove is a must when it comes to Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida. This classic seafood restaurant has an awesome outdoor bar and plenty of menu items including fresh blue crab straight off the boat and a spectacular Fisherman’s Platter that will really fill you up. Pecks Old Port Cove has the best views, especially if you sit in the Tiki room at Sunset.

motorcycle friendly restaurants Florida Mojo

Mojo’s on Oceanshore Blvd in Flagler Beach is another must stop if you are looking for good Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida. The bar and grill tavern has special bike nights and an incredibly fun atmosphere. If you ask around you can also find plenty of great roads for sport touring and sport rides. Oh, and great motorcycle parking too!

motorcycle friendly restaurants Florida

Unlike a lot of the Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida, Mojo’s is locally owned and operated and has a great menu. Touting award winning ribs and ½-pound ground sirloin burgers, they also have the coldest beer in town, I guess we’ll have to find out! With indoor and outdoor bars, why wouldn’t you want to stop…oh, and Mojo’s has live entertainment as well!

motorcycle friendly restaurants Florida

We could have stopped, but had to include one last example of great Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida.

If you are in Key West, Louie’s Backyard, on Waddell Ave. is a destination for sure with its variety of Caribbean specialties and or course, seafood. Louie’s is a longtime local establishment that serves lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Florida Louies

Louie’s Backyard with its multi-level deck, is a great place to enjoy a tuna burger for lunch, or a classic Maine lobster roll. If you stop in for dinner, try the Bahamian Conch Chowder for an appetizer and order the Lemon Horseradish Crusted Salmon with Chive oil and Sugar Snap Peas for your main course.

We love to eat and will surprise you with more Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in the United States next week!

Delicious Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama

Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama

Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama are not hard to find, and if you follow the Travels with Harley Blog, you will remember that we did highlight some awesome Harley Road Trips in Alabama this past spring, but we didn’t highlight the best Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama.

Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama Bobs

Located at 1715 6th Av. SE in Decatur and 2520 Danville, SW in Decatur Big Bob Gibson’s Original Bar-B-Q has great reviews with many calling it the best in Northern Alabama. When Bob Gibson started serving Bar-B-Q from a table in his backyard back in 1925, the smoke and the smell brought people from everywhere. Fast forward to today and Big Bob Gibsons family Bar-B-Q restaurant has lasted more than 75 years and four generations. The restaurant has the usual fare including barbecued chicken, pork and beef ribs and of course, brisket.

motorcycle friendly restaurant in Alabama

Alabama is known for great catfish and if you are in search of Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama that serve awesome catfish, Ezell’s Catfish Camp is the place to be. The atmosphere is relaxing and fun, especially if you get a seat on the patio that faces the river. Open Thursday through Sunday and located on Ezell Road in Butler, Alabama, you’ll find shrimp, oysters, crab, gumbo, frog legs, and of course, whole catfish and catfish filets.

jerusalem cafe motorcycle friendly restaurant Alabama

Everyone knows that Alabama has amazing seafood and great barbeque, but if you feel like trying something new and are looking for great Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Mobile Alabama check out the Jerusalem Café. Located on Airport Blvd., the affordable restaurant specializes in classic Middle Eastern food. I would love to try the Chicken Shawarmah or the Jerusalem Dinner Feast. If you are craving gyros or hummus this cozy eatery is the place to be.

motorcycle friendly restaurant Alabama reds

Built in 1910, Red Little’s School House Restaurant is located on Gardner Road in Grady, Alabama. Another great example of Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama, the classic southern style restaurant was built in 1910 and opened as a restaurant in 1985. Serving an awesome southern buffet, the interior, and exterior, is exactly what you would expect from a schoolhouse. Best selections on the menu, in my opinion anyway, is the fried chicken, Mac and cheese, collard greens, corn bread, and of course pecan pie.

motorcycle friendly restaurant Alabama Wintzels 2

Before we go, we can’t leave Wintzells Oyster House out of our Travels with Harley Blog. For more than 75 years, Wintzells Oyster House has been serving up seafood and is now a franchise with locations dotted throughout the gulf coast. Called a must for both locals and tourists, Wintzells Oyster House serves crawfish etouffee, gumbo, fried green tomatoes, and of course, oysters prepared six different ways. Personally, I can’t wait to try the cold salad with lump crab meat and marinated onions.

There are dozens more Motorcycle Friendly Restaurants in Alabama, but it’s time to move on. Next week Travels with Harley is heading to Florida to source some of the best restaurants and diners in the Sunshine State.

Make Sure you are Compatible for Motorcycle trips

motorcycle trips

Motorcycle trips are great, especially when you ride with a group, but as Jim and I have learned on our Travels with Harley motorcycle trips, not everyone is compatible. You may have a favorite riding buddy that you get together with for a day, but how do you know that your friend will be compatible on a long ride?

motorcycle trips

If you follow the Travels with Harley blog, you will know how much planning is needed for long motorcycle trips including what you will pack and the route that you will take, however, one of the most overlooked motorcycle trip details is who you will be riding with. Jim and I are great traveling companions, but if you don’t have the luxury of riding with a group that you know or a friend that you can trust, you need to ask yourself just how compatible you really are.

motorcycle trips

Riding Skills

If you are a bit of a daredevil, you want to make sure that your traveling companion is up to it. If you can navigate twisty roads with loads of curves, you will want to find a riding buddy that can handle it as well. The last thing that you want to do is slow down or wait for your companion to catch up. You can’t ask your riding buddy to pick up the pace as it can take away from the fun and could be dangerous.

motorcycle trips

Budgets

Knowing each other’s budgets will prevent any problems on your motorcycle trips. If your riding buddy is on a tight budget your favorite five star hotel could be out of the question. Of course, you could share a room and split the cost, but if either of you snore, it may cause some serious issues.

motorcycle trips

Meals should also be considered. If you eat like a bird and your friend enjoys three meals a day it could be a problem. Most importantly are the places that you choose. Everyone’s taste varies and if you are the type of person who likes to eat like a King, your riding companion’s fast food choices could be problematic.

motorcycle trips

Touring Experience

If you travel quite a bit, like Jim and I do, you may take motorcycle touring for granted. If you are traveling with a novice, you may have to wait as your companion meticulously packs up his or her bike every morning. Worse yet, you may have to spend more time in the store than on your bike as your riding buddy shops for items that may have been forgotten.

motorcycle trips

Personalities

Before you head out on motorcycle trips, make sure that you spend some time with your potential riding buddy before you venture out on long motorcycle trips. The two of you may get along fine in small doses, but what about on a long trip.

motorcycle trips

Remember, motorcycle buddies can be friends for life, as long as the two of you are compatible. If you aren’t, your best weekend riding friend could end up being your worst enemy.

Awesome Delaware Motorcycle Rides

Delaware motorcycle rides

For such a small state, Delaware motorcycle rides are certainly adventurous. Delaware motorcycle rides offer fun, food, and adventure and will definitely keep you on your toes.

Delaware motorcycle rides

Delaware is one of the few tax free shopping states in the United States, and if you know Jim and I, we love to shop, well, actually I prefer to shop more than Jim does, but the two words, tax and free are certainly good reasons to seek out Delaware motorcycle rides.

Delaware motorcycle rides

Delaware has a rich history with both urban and rural scenery. Delaware motorcycle rides offer bikers thick forests and amazing shorelines. If you decide to go on a lengthy ride and spend a few days in the state you will find great hiking trails, beaches and, if you enjoy gambling, casinos.

Delaware motorcycle rides

If you are like Jim and enjoy a challenge, check out the Delaware Coast Run. This 60-mile Delaware motorcycle ride is a two-lane road that passes through farmland and coastal estuaries. According to most bikers, the road is a lot of fun, but has quite a few blind curves. You can stop at the Air Mobility Museum that is located at Dover End or have a plate of famous Dover crab at Sambo’s Tavern in Leipsic. Lots of H.O.G members rave about the Augustine Inn at Augustine beach for a coldie and can’t stop talking about Kelly’s Crab House in Port Penn.

Delaware motorcycle rides

US Highway 13 is one of those 76-mile Delaware motorcycle rides that you will not want to miss. Although it is stop and go at first, once you get going you will pick up some speed as you pass farms, creeks and rivers. You will ride through quite a few state parks and forests with unbeatable scenery in Shad Landing State Park, the Redden State Forest, and the Pocomoke River State Forest. Pack a picnic lunch or bring your fishing pole as the state parks offer all kinds of activities if you are on Delaware motorcycle rides.

delaware motorcycle rides

Although it is quite flat, the 73 mile Delaware Countdown 16 15 14 13 has lots of sweeping turns that most riders will enjoy. Just like Ohio you will ride through Amish country when you go through West Dover and Camden, so be sure to keep an eye out for buggies. The ride takes about 2 hours and really is the best way to avoid the beach traffic during the warmer months. If you want to stretch your legs or stop for lunch, try Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. Apparently, the food is to die for. Personally, I want to try the sweet heat chicken and shrimp with a side of homemade black beans.

Delaware motorcycle rides

 

Jim and I are itching to get out on Delaware motorcycle rides, but in the meantime will be heading down to South Carolina for our next Travels with Harley.

Preparing for a Motorcycle Road Trip

planning a motorcycle road trip

Preparing for a motorcycle trip can be difficult, and frankly, Jim and I have had a few road trips where we were not prepared; however, now that we know more about preparing for a motorcycle trip, we are not so worried about forgetting something.

Below are a few tips that you may want to consider if you are preparing for a motorcycle road trip.

planning a motorcycle road trip

Weather Appropriate Clothing

Depending on when you are traveling, you will want to your gear to be able to deal with the elements. For warmer months, pack sunscreen, sunglasses and a cool neck wrap, and gloves, a heated vest liner, and waterproof outerwear during the fall and winter.

preparing for a motorcycle road trip

Maintenance

The last thing that you want is to breakdown and not have the appropriate tools. Make sure that you have motor oil, a bike cover, a tool kit, a tire inflation kit and jumper cables. If you are handy with a wrench, include fuses, spare spark plugs, and maybe a clutch cable.

preparing for a motorcycle road trip

All the comforts of home

If you are like Jim and I you know that preparing for a motorcycle road trip is all about traveling light. However, there are some things that I like to take along including earplugs, lip balm, and toiletries.

In case of an emergency

Make sure that you pack a list of contacts and a first-aid kit. Don’t forget your medications, waterproof matches, a flashlight, phone charger, energy bars, and an emergency blanket. Always have water on hand as well as a few snacks that are easy to pack.

preparing for a motorcycle road trip

Roll it up

When you roll your clothes, like Jim and I do when we are preparing for a motorcycle road trip, you can fit more than you would if you folded them.

Synthetics over cotton

Synthetic clothes dry much faster than cotton, and if you have just been rained on or washed your clothes and want to get back out on the road, pack the synthetics.

preparing for a motorcycle road tripCompare your list

If you are riding with a group, make sure that your riding buddies and your partner are not duplicating items. Share what you can to save room for more important things.

Keep your gear towards the front

Because the front is your motorcycles center of gravity, it is important to disperse your personal items evenly as it will make for a smoother ride, even with the additional weight.

Preparing for a motorcycle road trip

Group it

If you are preparing for a motorcycle road trip try and group your similar items in zip lock baggies as you can arrange your things neatly making them much easier to access.

Next week Jim and I will talk about the finer details of preparing for a motorcycle road trip.

Just Another Motorcycle Road Trip in Massachusetts

Motorcycle Road Trip

A Motorcycle Road Trip can take an hour or ten days, depending on where you are headed, but as Jim and I like to say, any Motorcycle Road Trip is a good trip, as long as you are prepared ahead of time.

If you follow our Travels with Harley Blog, we have been sharing some great examples of the perfect Motorcycle Road Trip and this week we’re headed to Massachusetts.

Motorcycle Road Trip

From the thick forests in the Berkshire Mountains in western Massachusetts, to the huge bluffs in Cape Code, Massachusetts really does have it all. You can hit the small towns, or spend a night in Boston for great shopping and dining. The Mayflower landed in Massachusetts followed by the Revolutionary War and the Witch Hunts.

Motorcycle Road Trips

Through the Country to the Castle is a great Motorcycle Road Trip that has mountains, ocean and country roads that take you to Castle Island all in just 36 miles. You’ll go through Blue Hills Mountain where you will see amazing views of Boston and the surrounding areas on winding roads that are invigorating and well paved. Quincy Shore has a couple of great eateries including Tony’s Clam Shop, which has a great selection of seafood platters.

The Country Whip Inc

Scenic Route 105 is another great Motorcycle Road Trip in Massachusetts that you will not want to miss. You will drive through orchards and farms taking you through Acushnet ending up in historic Marion. There will be lots of 90-degree right and left turns. When you get to Acushnet, stop at The Country Whip Drive Inc, and try a lobster roll and some fried clams.

Sams Pizzaria and Cafe

If you don’t have all day, but feel like getting out for a great little Motorcycle Road Trip, take the 23 mile Route 66 to Northampton. You’ll ride past mountains, farmlands, and state parks on good quality roads with lots of curves and hills. Once you get into Northampton, you will find a lot of great places to eat and shop, two of my favorite activities. Try to find something with outside tables, such as Sam’s Pizzeria and Café where you can enjoy a gourmet pizza washed down with an icy cold beer. Sam’s has live music Wednesday through Sunday and is open until 3:00 am on the weekends, not that Jim and I are ever up that late, or early!

Motorcycle Road Trip

Jim and I love Massachusetts and hope to get in another Motorcycle Road Trip for another Travels with Harley adventure soon. When that happens, we will definitely keep you posted!

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.

Travels with Harley

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.

Travels with Harley

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.

Travels with Harley

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.

Three California Motorcycle Day Trips this Winter

Travels with Harley

The weather is wrecking havoc all over the country, and isn’t the best for motorcycle day trips. However, California has the warmest temperatures on record for February, and if you are lucky enough to live in California there are some awesome motorcycle day trips that you can enjoy.

Travels with Harley

There is still quite a bit of snow in the Sierra Nevada mountains, so if you are thinking about motorcycle day trips you may want to stick to central and southern California where you can enjoy the twists and turns that California is famous for when it comes to motorcycle day trips.

The Miners Diner

The Montezuma Valley Road from Ranchita to Borrego Springs motorcycle ride is a Southern California favorite when it comes to motorcycle day trips. The road has some drop offs and can be very steep reaching to an elevation of just over 3000 feet. The road leads you into the town of Julian where you will find plenty of places to eat including The Miners Diner that has some of the best specialty sandwiches in the area. If you live or plan to visit San Diego this is one of the best motorcycle day trips that you will find.

Cucina Italiana

Another great example of motorcycle day trips in California is one that you will not want to miss. The CA 121 Napa to Winters ride is for serious enthusiasts. As you take off from Napa, the road takes you up the hills towards Lake Berryessa. With the never-ending curves and smooth pavement the 121 is like an E-ticket ride at Disneyland. Stop for a bite at Cucina Italiana at Lake Berryessa in Napa, which is one of the best Italian restaurants in the area.

Paradise Valley Cafe

Highway 74 takes you from Hemet to Indian Wells and is an awesome example of motorcycle day trips. As you head towards the top, you will experience lots of twisty corners before straightening out. Once you start descending into the Coachella Valley, you will experience more twists and turns. Although there are not many amenities, make sure you gas up before you go; there are quite a few hiking trails and campsites. If you want to stop for a bite to eat, try the Paradise Valley Café, which is located at the intersection of Highway 371 and Highway 74. This great café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and has something for everyone including burgers, sandwiches, soups, and salads. Drop in for breakfast and enjoy a breakfast beer and some of the best biscuits and gravy that you will ever have.

Travels with Harley

 

When it comes to motorcycle day trips, it doesn’t get much better than California. I know if Jim and I were in my home state, we would be enjoying one right now!
