Friday Favorites – Motorcycle Trips

I haven’t always been a motorcycle rider. And I’ve had plenty of people tell me they can’t even imagine me being a rider. (I think they mean they don’t see me as a “biker chick”.) But it turns out it is a lot of fun! I’ve been riding with my husband for several years and now I can even share my favorite motorcycle trips out of all the ones we’ve taken:

driving blue ridge parkway

Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway

#1 – The Blue Ridge Parkway

One of the very best trips I’ve been on has been along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina and Tennessee. There are miles and miles of interesting roads and beautiful scenery. We were there in the month of July and the weather (except for some rain) was perfect. You can find a great mile by mile guide to the Parkway here.

Pikes Peak

At the Top of Pikes Peak

#2 – Pikes Peak

The trip up Pikes Peak in Colorado was 19 miles of twists and turns. Some of the time it felt like we were right on the edge of the mountain. I can honestly say that I am really glad we made this trip . . . it was a definite challenge to ride and a trip to scratch off the bucket list of all the places you need to go at least once in your lifetime!

Eureka Springs, Arkansas

#3 – Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Our recent trip to Eureka Springs was a lot of fun and will be some place I’ll want to go back to. The roads on the way there are full of curves and perfect for an interesting ride.  Once you arrive in town you’ll find plenty of rider-friendly hotels and restaurants. This town is not just a destination for motorcycle riders . . . it would be perfect for anyone. I’m hoping to go back for a girls weekend and check out all of the shops!

These are my top 3 rides so far. We are still planning to ride along the California coast and we would really like to ride down to Key West in Florida at some point. If you would like to check out a couple of our rides you can see them at Driving the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pikes Peak – A Colorado Motorcycle Adventure.

Where else should we go for an interesting ride? Do you have any ideas for us? Thanks in advance and safe travels!!!

    Having lived in northern, central and southern California over a span of 16 years, I am somewhat of an expert on that state. If you go there, make sure to visit Yosemite Valley and the Redwoods National Forest. I, also, love Lassen Volcanic National Park, but the other places are a priority. For a ride on Hwy 1, I think I would prefer areas North and South from San Francisco. Do you get to drive the bike or stay on the back all the time?
