When a trip to Europe or South America is not in cards, there are always plenty of great places to travel and ride here in the States. And with motorcycle tour companies like Tennessee-based GSM MotoRent, you don’t have to stress over planning. GSM has two new self-guided tour packages available for the 2015 season. The Blue Ridge 500, a three-day/three-night trip, and the Blue Ridge 700, a six-day/six-night tour that includes lodging and motorcycle rental, as well as GPS guidance with easy to follow routes. These tours have been designed to make the most out of each day’s ride and include points of interest along the way as well as adventure detours. These detours are optional, short excursions on forest roads that link back up with the main route, perfect if you feel like getting dirty. Restaurants, shopping, and nightlife are all within easy walking distance from your room in the evenings.
Airport pickup and return from Knoxville, TN is included in every tour package.
Bikes available include BMW, Triumph, Kawasaki, and Suzuki. Pricing starts in the $600s. More information about these and other tours can be found on their website at www.gsmmotorent.com.
