With EagleRider's recent rollout of a combined bike and hotel package that allows motorcycle enthusiasts to simply select their desired route and accommodation budget ahead of their journey, it's never been easier to experience a new road.
And as summer comes to a close, now is the time for riders to plan their first scenic fall ride.
Not sure where to start, how about one of these three iconic roadways?
You'll have plenty of time to unwind on this 109-mile-long stretch of road through Virginia.
The scenery is unrivaled and rightfully so considering Skyline Drive runs the entire length of Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The foliage makes this road a must-ride in the fall and with dozens of overlooks located throughout the drive, riders will have no shortage of opportunities to slow down, take a break and soak in the stellar views.
Tail of the Dragon
Not far from Skyline Drive riders can attempt to conquer the "Tail of the Dragon" in Deals Gap, North Carolina.
A beloved destination among motorcycle riders, the 11-mile stretch of road on the North Carolina-Tennessee border boasts 318 curves. The once 55 mph speed limit along the Dragon has since been changed to 30 mph. But riders won't need a reason to slow down and cruise since there are plenty of scenic overlooks available along the route.
Tunnel of Trees
Michigan's 27.5-mile-long M-119 is perhaps most appreciated for its northern portion which has come to be known as the Tunnel of Trees.
The Scenic Heritage Route located north of Harbor Springs is unique in that it lacks a centerline and is surrounded by forest and views of the Lake Michigan shoreline. Unsurprisingly, the Tunnel of Trees offers some of the best scenery in North America in the fall and is no stranger to motorcycle riders.
