The motorcycle byways of the southern Appalachians are classic: Georgia 60, the notorious “Dragon,” The Cherohala Skyway. Ride to the top of Georgia's Brasstown Bald or over Tennessee's Lookout Mountain. Cruise remote back roads to Highlands, NC, highest incorporated town in the East, or tour the Chickamauga Battlefield near Chattanoooga. Along the way enjoy local eateries and B&Bs, visit motorcycle-only resorts and soak in the world-class scenery. Easy-to-read maps, complete directions and road conditions for each ride are included, liberally sprinkled with former metro Atlanta motorcycle policeman Hawk Hagebak's own special brand of humor and practical advice on motorcycling etiquette, handling a breakdown, avoiding traffic tickets, and more.
