Youre a rider…an independent spirit whos reluctant to follow someone elses road map. But there are thousands of miles of road out there, and you could spend months searching for the best ones.

McKechnie covers popular rides through Hudson River Valley, Amish Country, the Smoky Mountains and Georgia Hills, Washington State, the Pacific Coast, and everything in-between.

In this fifth edition of his best-selling guide, McKechnie includes:

Exciting new photographs of rides like the Hudson River Ralley Run, the Pacific Coast Run, and the Red Rocks Run

New tips on the best food, shopping, and nightlife you'll experience along the way

Dont waste your valuable two-wheeled vacation. Instead, let Great American Motorcycle Tours be your guide.

About the Author

People buy motorcycles because of the dream—the dream of cutting ties with routine and embarking on an epic motorcycle journey, one highlighted by an exploration of Americas most beautiful back roads, charming towns, historic sites, intriguing attractions, and cool diners and dives. This is the dream moto-journalist Gary McKechnie has shared with more than 100,000 readers and riders in his best-selling book Great American Motorcycle Tours, winner of the prestigious Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award and now in its fifth edition.

Bored with his 9-to-5 job, McKechnie sold his house and set out to write Americas first nationwide motorcycle touring guidebook, embarking on an 18-month journey across the United States. From the rocky coasts of Maine to the deep forests of Washington, from the awe-inspiring bluffs of the Pacific Coast Highway to the end of the road in Key West, he traveled tens of thousands of miles to recapture a feeling of freedom and live a lifestyle millions of riders ache to achieve. His journey was featured by national newspapers, radio, and television. It inspired him to undertake a second trans-American expedition to chronicle 101 uniquely American places, events, and festivals for his second book, National Geographics USA 101.

A former stand-up comedian and commercial actor, McKechnie shares a unique combination of travelogue and motivational storytelling at corporate events, trade shows, and panel discussions, as well as at sea aboard the ships of the Cunard, Seabourn, Silversea, and Princess cruise lines.

Gary McKechnie lives the dream. His mission is to inspire others to live theirs. For more about Gary McKechnie and Great American Motorcycle Tours, visit GaryMcKechnie.com and MotorcycleAmerica.com.
