Unheard of Fall Motorcycle Rides

Fall motorcycle rides are some of the most enjoyable on the planet, or at least Jim and I think so. So much in fact, that we decided to hit the road and share some fall motorcycle rides that not everyone is aware of.

 

Beartooth Pass

Beartooth Pass, located in Montana and Wyoming, is one of those fall motorcycle rides that you will not want to miss. With endless hairpin turns and curves, this road is definitely for the more experienced riders. The views are spectacular with the colors of fall peeping through dense forests and incredible mountains. Be prepared as your descent is straight down. Best pack a lunch as there are no amenities on this hair-curling trip but there are plenty of places to stop and enjoy the scenery.

Tunnel of Trees

Located in Michigan, the Tunnel of Trees road is a must during the fall. Midsummer and autumn are the best times to take the Tunnel of Trees fall motorcycle rides as the summer brings plenty of sunshine and warm weather so that you can enjoy the ocean while taking a break from the road. Just be sure if you are there in the summer that you watch for sand on the road.

During the fall, the Tunnel of Trees is in all her glory with an amazing show of autumn colors. The road hugs the Lake Michigan shoreline and is full of narrow curves. If you are hungry, stop by the Legs Inn for a Polish Entrée or some potato pancakes. The Inn has been a family owned and operated establishment for 90 years.

Colorado is home to the San Juan Mountain Skyway where you will find the perfect opportunity for fall motorcycle rides. Everyone who has enjoyed this trip will tell you that this is one of the most gorgeous areas in the Rocky Mountains. Strap on your GoPro because you will not want to miss the majestic mountain tops as you cruise through an area that is called the, “Switzerland of America,” thanks to its 14,000 mountain peaks. Along the way, you can stop at the hot springs or check out the red rock canyons.

When it comes to fall motorcycle rides the United States can’t be beat so grab your helmet, get on your bike, and enjoy a fall ride that only comes around once a year.

Fall Motorcycle Rides are a Must

Fall Motorcycle Rides

Fall Motorcycle Rides, we just can’t get enough of them, which is why Jim and I wanted to target a few more Fall Motorcycle Rides that will get you out of the house and on your Harley. Unlike lengthy summer vacations, fall getaways don’t need a lot of planning. All you have to do is have a location, a plan, and maybe a picnic.

Print Makers Inn

Savannah Georgia

Ranked as one of the top autumn getaways by the US News and World Report, Savannah, GA, is a great place to enjoy the foliage. Spend the weekend at the Print Makers Inn, which is one of the best B & B’s in the area, and enjoy classic Southern Hospitality in an 1884 classic B & B in the oldest city in Georgia. Book a river cruise and you will be in awe of the fall colors as you make your way down the river.

New England

Ok, so New England isn’t a state, but it is an area that boasts some of the best autumn colors on the planet. New England is known for its gorgeous fall leaves as billions of them begin to change from green to chestnut brown, magenta, harvest gold and bright red. The air is crisp and cool making it the perfect time to head out on Fall Motorcycle Rides. While you are there be sure to pick up some fresh apples from the local stalls that are dotted up and down the roadways.

The leaves begin to put on their show from mid-September to mid-October. However, if you head to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, up the New Hampshire coast and into southern Maine the colors can sometimes last until mid-November. There is plenty to do on the back of a Harley in New England. Jim and I have been on quite a few rides and if you follow our Travels with Harley blog, you will remember our New England Trailblazer Tour a few years back.

For some, autumn is the most beautiful time of the year, and if you want to enjoy it on the back of your Harley, do it now, as Fall Motorcycle Rides will be over before you know it.
