New England Fall
||Autumn in New England
is an experience not to be missed. The region is well
known for its incredible beauty at this time of year when
the changing of seasons turns the tree leaves to brilliant
shades of red, yellow and orange. The view is even more
spectacular when seen from the seat of a motorcycle on a
perfect mountain road.
colours that spread out in front of me almost defied
description; bright vivid reds, golden oranges,
flourescent greens, yellows and even purples. With the
sun shining on the distant carpet of trees, it was as
if they were lit up from inside. I was standing
by the side of the road... looking out at the
most stunningly beautiful view I had ever seen."

foliage tours and then wrote about the experience in an
article called "Video and the Art of Motorcycle
Maintenance" which appeared in Camcorder User
magazine in September of 1998.
||You'll stop to look
out at the crisp white buildings of New England villages
set amidst a blaze of nature's color. The roads are smooth
and twisty; they'll lead you up through alpine gaps and
notches and then down along mountain streams as they make
their way into the valleys. Its a great combination, the
best roads of New England surrounded by brilliant fall
"...At the end
of every day, I said the same thing, " Oh my gosh,
that was the best riding of my life!"...The food was
excellent; the accommodations were above and
beyond. Great camaraderie from all. Sean
is knowledgeable and funny. Advice is freely
given if asked for, no preaching. I came away
a better, safer, and more confident
rider...Definitely the most fun I've had on a
motorcycle so far..."

roads - from straights to sweeping curves to
corners - all set
amid stunning scenery. In the evenings,

meal and a room in a classic inn will be waiting for
you at the end of each day's ride. After a gourmet dinner,
you might relax and talk with new friends or enjoy a walk
around town or down a small back road. The next morning
you'll wake up to a full country breakfast and decide what
to do with your day. You might decide to join the group
ride or use our custom route maps and suggestions to
explore on your own. Either way, the riding will be superb
and the fall scenery spectacular.
|Our foliage tours are
shorter versions of the Northeastern Mountains Tours.
On the first three tours, the riding is all scheduled for
weekdays when the roads are most empty. All foliage
tours spend several days exploring the Green Mountains
of Vermont. Tour one also travels up into the Adirondack
Mountains to catch the earlier northern peak
foliage. Tours three and four instead spend more time in
southern Vermont to catch the later southern peak foliage.
Our many years of exploring this region have taught us
where to bring you for an unforgettable week of riding.
Come and experience it for yourself.
