Welcome to North Georgia Motorcycles!
We are glad you came by to visit.
A word from Eric
I sure am getting tired of this 70° temperature one day and snow the next! Tomorrow is April Fools Day and I certainly hope that it is not going to fool us with the weather again! On Thursday Evening, the "Gauntlet Thunder in the Mountains" rally begins at the Lodge at Copperhead in Blairsville. This is the first rally in the North Georgia Mountains of the season that I am aware of. Rally season begins the spring-summer riding season and I am so ready for it to begin.
Stop by the Lodge any time from Thursday to Sunday for a great time with other bikers, live bands, food and vendors. You can see the promo slick further down on this page.
We will be there, set up representing North Georgia Motorcycles & Born to Ride Magazine. I am hoping to be their with some books, but if they do not arrive in time, I will be taking orders directly for a special show price and each copy ordered at the show will be a signed copy by me. We will ship them as soon as they arrive!
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.
The Book Has Finally Arrived!
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!

2012-2013 Motorcycle Reviews!
2013 Sport-Touring Shootout 1.0
Yamaha FJR1300 vs. Honda ST1300 vs. Kawasaki Concours 14
It was a gross underestimation of time and distance on my behalf that got us into Death Valley so late, but riding through a moonlit desert in frigid temperatures at triple-digit speeds is an appropriate mission for a sport-touring bike. This environment also lends to emphasize the advantages and deficiencies among the competing participants.
Upcoming NGM Rides
Our April ride will take us to the Chickamauga Battlefield in Fort Oglethorpe, GA. We will first stop in Dalton at Kirk's Cycles, owned by famous AMA Grand National Champion and NASCAR Racer, Tammy Jo Kirk. We will ride Hwy 136 to Resaca, GA and then Hwy 41 to Dalton. From Dalton we will go to Rocky Face and pick up Hwy 201 back to Hwy 136 and on into Lafayette, GA. From Lafayette, we will run Hwy 27 north to the Battlefield and the back to Talking Rock.
Our May ride will actually be a weekend event at the WK Cafe & Grille (Waffle King) in Blue Ridge GA, where they are hosting a bike show and other events with live bands and activities. We will be riding from Waffle King and riding north to the Richard B Russell Parkway into Helen. From Helen we will continue on to Toccoa, GA and then return back to Blue Ridge for the evenings activities.
