Motorcycle Tours & Packages
We not only take pride in offering the most diverse lineup of well maintained bikes in the Smokies, but just as important, we love sharing our knowledge of the area whether you want to ride on road or off. Choose from any of our easy to follow self guided day rides, included free with your rental, for an adventure you won’t soon forget. All of our day loops start and end in Townsend but can be easily modified if your staying in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, or elsewhere in the area, and if you’re like me and don’t like missing a meal, they put you somewhere for lunch and fuel mid-day.
Regarding our Dual Sport routes, depending on rider abilities, there is a wide range of riding available in the area, from groomed gravel fire roads all the way to gnarly single track trails for those most interested in the dual sport experience.
Or opt for one of our multi-day tour packages and leave all the planning to us.
If you are interested in a guided tour, we can set you up with a guide that knows the area well. On road and off road dual sport tours can be designed for any ability and challenge from a single day to a multi-day trip. Rates for the guided tours are $50 per day on our bikes , $75 per day on your bike, 3 rider min., 6 rider max. Just give us a call and let us know what you have in mind. Please note, we will need a minimum of two weeks advance notice to ensure we have a guide available.

As far as dual sport routes, we are located right in the center of two great areas to ride, the Cherokee National Forest area around Tellico Plains, and the area to the East of the Park in the Pisgah National Forest. Our day routes average 180 miles in length and will have between 35 to 75 miles off the pavement, plan on 7 to 8 hours out. You can check out the detailed descriptions on our Dual Sport Day Trip page. All the gravel portions are maintained forest and park service roads and are ideal for the rider with limited experience on loose surfaces. We have many routes, some that are variations of these and others that include more challenging conditions for the more experienced rider. Route sheets are included with motorcycle rental.
