#1)  The number one place to go in the summer is Orlando, Florida.  While you are here, you have to stop and check out the Orlando Motorcycle Salon.  You’ll get an opportunity to see some of the latest and greatest motorcycles.  It is located at the Orlando County Convention Center.  A great feature about this popular destination is that it has a lot of family attractions and campgrounds.  You can bring your entire family for some fun in the sun.bikershades

#2)  Sturgis Motorcycle Rally-  The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally takes place in August every year.  The beautiful trip includes a hike to the Black Hills of South Dakota.

#3)  Blue Ridge Parkway-  Blue Ridge Parkway is a breathtaking tail in Virginia.  The trail includes twisty roads and plenty of campgrounds.  It is a 469 mile long trip and goes along the Appalachian Mountain chain.

#4)  Washington-  Washington has some of the top choices for motorcyclists because of the picture-perfect Pacific coast.  The most popular trail in the entire state is probably North Cascades Highway.  It is important to make note that it is common for the trail to be closed from November to March.  Another top choice is the High Road which runs from Portland to Seattle.  This is the best option for someone who wants to ride in the mountains and feel like they are at one with nature.  You won’t have to worry about running into heavily populated areas or McDonalds when you are on this trail.

#5)  The Granite State-  New Hampshire is a popular place to go motorcycle riding in the Northeast.  An overall great ride is on the Kancamagus Scenic Byway.  This trail runs from Conway to North Woodstock and provides the ideal blend of scenery and outstanding foliage in the fall.  If you go during the fall, you can expect to see an amazing blend of reds, oranges, and yellows.

#6)  Daytona Beach-  The second destination in Florida for motorcycle rides is Daytona Beach.  The best part about this destination is the bright sunshine, beautiful beaches, and attractions.  You can visit all of the top attractions by riding the loop.  Don’t forget your Ray Ban sunglasses as this place is always very sunny.

#7)  Adirondack Mountains-  A top place to go riding in New York is the Adirondack Mountains.  New York might be known for its bright city; but the Adirondack Mountains are absolutely amazing.  They are located in upstate New York and you won’t have to worry about running into a ton of people.  You should definitely do this ride in the summer because it gets ice cold in this region during the winter.

#8)  Lexington, Kentucky-  If you want to go on a beautiful bike ride that is filled with blue grass, you should check out Lexington, Kentucky.  A popular trail in Lexington is traveling on 89.  While you are in this city, you should also stop in a local diner and get some food.  Some of the best food can be found in the state of Kentucky. Make sure to fuel up your Harley as there are long stretches of road in between.

#9)  Tombstone, Arizona- Tombstone is a good place to ride if you are looking for something spooky.  Tombstone is known for being a ghost town.  And the emptiness will definitely give you the creeps. Make sure to bring a misting fan on this trip, because temperatures can get well above 100 degrees in the summer time.

#10)  Forkland, Alabama-  Forkland is a top destination for people who like to look at water while they ride.  It is filled with national parks and is home to the Bama Bike Fest Summer Motorcycle Rally.  The rally takes place towards the beginning of July and has live music, alcoholic beverages, and a wet t-shirt contest.
