Welcome to North Georgia Motorcycles!
We are glad you came by to visit.
A word from Eric
Well, October is here and the cooler weather is setting in! October in the North Georgia Mountains traditionally means two things. It means that the leaves are turning and literally hundreds of thousands of people make their way to the mountains to look at the leaves. Secondly, it means Oktoberfest in Helen, GA!
While the roads are crowded and you will for sure sit in traffic a while, if you have never experienced Oktoberfest in a Bavarian town, it is well worth the experience!
I have included here some information about Helen from the Chamber website not only for Oktoberfest, but other events as well.
Downtown Helen, GA
ONE THING I WANT TO EMPHASIZE is that one of advertisers "CHATTAHOOCHEE BIKER GEAR" is located in Helen and I want to encourage you to stop by and visit Pat, Carrie and the whole staff at the shop! They are some of the best people in the biking retail world that I know and I know that they would love to have you drop in and visit them!
I also would like to encourage you to look at our advertisers in our directory of motorcycle friendly businesses to the left of this page or click on our Premier Businesses located further down on this page (they are also in the directory - just easier to get to them here).
Eric & Debbie Wieberg
As always, keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down! Until the next time.
If you have any thoughts about or for the website, I would love to hear from you! We are looking forward to making 2013 a blow-out year!
A “good” ride is one from which you can walk away.
A “great” ride is one after which you can use the bike again.
"But I Never Saw Him"
An Important Article That Riders Should Read!
"American motorcycle and scooter riders must now mix it up with more drivers on the road than ever. And too often these motorists are busy, distracted, and typically driving bigger, heavier cars.
And do you know what? To the average driver, you on your motorcycle or scooter may be “invisible.” Forty to 75 percent of all motorcycle crashes involve a motorist turning left in front of the rider. They may tell the police afterward, “I never saw him."

The Book Has Finally Arrived!
Good read for a GA motorcycle enthusiast, April 11, 2013
The title of the review says it all. Good read for a GA motorcycle enthusiast. It's an easy read to help set up rides. If you live here or plan to ride here get a copy to help find some great roads. - James R. Harrell
While up in Helen, GA for Victory Cycle rally we took a little ride over to Dahlonega and found Riders Hill. I picked up a copy of your book, and thou I'm only part way thru it, it's been an enjoyable read so far. It also helped me find Chattahoochee Biker Gear in Helen. Best wishes in the future.....Mike
In a day when motorcycling is not only becoming an economical way of transportation, riders are also discovering the joy of riding for pleasure.
This book is written for those that want to take off and find some scenic rides in the North Georgia, Southeastern Tennessee and Southwestern North Carolina areas.
I have included some motorcycling stories for your reading pleasure including a comical take on my son's first long distance motorcycle trip. The chapters have been kept to a minimal write-up description of the rides, but yet they give you a feel for the ride area. Each chapter also includes photos from the ride routes, as well as, a map and turn by turn directions.
I am a very strong believer that businesses that truly believe in the biking community and welcome us into their establishments with open arms deserve our support! I have included in the book a listing of businesses that have believed in us and their information is included throughout the book. I encourage you to lend your support to these businesses that support us!
