Nothing could be finer than riding in the North Carolina mountains—and southwest Virginia, and East Tennessee. Hawk Hagebak’s second motorcycle adventure guide takes you along winding backroads in the NC High Country, through the worlds shortest tunnel at Tennessee’s Backbone Rock, and from Asheville’s “Paris of the South” vibe to the mile-high wonders of the Blue Ridge Parkway. This guide includes 26 rides in all, from 16 to 144 miles. Sample the culinary delights of the region, visit motorcycle-only resorts, and take advantage of this book’s complete directions, easy to read maps, road conditions, motorcycle laws for the Southeastern states, and more—all liberally sprinkled with the author’s special brand of humor and practical advice.
The book takes you from Asheville to Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. It winds through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park from Cherokee to southwestern Virginia. In all, the new guide describes 26 scenic motorcycle tours. . . . Hagebak leaves nothing out, as his guidebook provides detailed maps, points of interest and state riding regulations in all of the states covered in the book.
If there were a New York Times
bestseller list for motorcycle books, Hawk's guides would be at the top. We just can't keep them on the shelf.
