GSMmotoRent Self-Guided Blue Ridge ToursGSMmotoRent, a recognized expert in motorcycle rentals and tours throughout the Smokey Mountains based in Townsend, Tenn., has two new self- guided tour packages available for the 2015 season.
The Blue Ridge 500 (three days, three nights), and the Blue Ridge 700 (six days, six nights) are self-guided tours that include all lodging, motorcycle rental, and GPS guidance with easy to follow routes in one package. These tours have been designed to make the most out of each days ride and include “Points of Interest” along the way. The tours also feature “Adventure Detours” – optional short excursions on Forest Roads that link back up with the main route if you feel like getting dirty.All lodging was chosen so that restaurants, shopping, and night life are within easy walking distance to your room every evening.According to owner Dan Dickie, “What we have found in the M/C rental business is that the bike is half of the equation, where to ride to get the most out of your vacation is the other. We have listened to our customers, and that combined with our years of traveling these areas has allowed us to put together what we believe, are the best balance of riding, things to see, and lodging for each tour.”GSMmotoRent Fly and rideAirport pickup and return to the Knoxville, Tenn., airport is included in all tours. With a wide range of bikes available from BMW, Triumph, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and KTM, plan on riding through the mountains on the steed of your choice. Let GSMmotoRent do all the planning.

This week, Senior Editor Nic de Sena gives us his impression of the outrageously cool-looking new Indian Scout Rogue. The Rogue features a larger front wheel among several other changes, and the bobbed-looks and excellent 100 horsepower motor make the Scout Rogue an interesting—and very real—competitor to the offerings from Milwaukee.
In the second segment Neale Bayly brings us the third and final segment from Brian Slark—the man who helped bring Norton motorcycles to America. Having spent 27 years and counting at the Barber Museum in Birmingham Alabama, Brian talks us through the final part of his career, that of course includes how the museum got started and where it’s going.
