You're a rider . . . an independent spirit who's reluctant to follow someone else's road map. But there are millions of miles of road to travel, and you could spend months searching for the best ones. Don't waste your valuable two-wheeled vacation on ordinary routes. Instead, let Gary McKechnie be your guide. He's spent years exploring the nation by bike, and he gives you his top 20 rides, from the rocky New England coast to the wide-open West. In this detailed update of his best-selling guide, McKechnie includes: tips on side trips, scenic stops, and watering holes; advice on packing, equipment, road conditions, rider-friendly attractions, and lists of conveniently-located motorcycle shops along the routes; on-the-road photographs and hand-drawn maps; and an extensive appendix featuring essential websites that help riders find rallies, rental and touring companies, and motorcycle clubs."

In May, 2001, Gary McKechnie received one of highest honors a travel writer can receive: a silver medal in the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism competition for his guidebook, Great American Motorcycle Tours -- often called 'The Pulitzer Prize for travel journalists'.
Awarded by the Society of American Travel Writers, SATW vice president Larry Keller told the first-time author: "Congratulations -- you hit a home run in your first time at bat!"
To build on the success of Great American Motorcycle Tours, which has been profiled on CNN, in USA Today and newspapers and radio stations around the country, McKechnie is planning a series of other American adventure guides which blend a keen sense of humor with an appreciation of his country.About the Author:
