NC TOURING - Affordable Motorcycle Adventures

   
Six years and going ...

Line and Terri of NC Touring Cannot believe we started this company so long ago! Things have been going great, and with success comes new ideas along the way. We are very excited to announce a bit of "expansion" in the way of our company that will be revealed around the start of 2016. Don't fret, we will still be offereing our motorcycle tours, but we will be creating new opportunities for you to get out and explore this great state of ours.

Many of you would like to know how things got started. We developed our company to eliminate some of the obstacles that keep riders from experiencing motorcycle camping. Most people do not have the initial equipment, or want to invest in something that they are not sure if they will like... we are here to fill that gap and create an experience that is truly unique.

Our tours are not completely inclusive, but we often provide the necessary equipment to enjoy a motorcycling / camping experience without all the hassle. On most tours, we will provide, transport and set up your tent, sleeping bag, and mattress. You really only need your bike and your willingness to explore something new.

In addition to the camping, we also provide a professionally executed tour with side trips to some overlooked gems in North Carolina, all for a very affordable price.

If you don't find a tour that fits your schedule, contact us to develop your own personal itinerary. We look forward to riding with you soon.

... Line and Terri

What people are saying about NC Touring...

We wanted to thank you for showing us the beauty of North Carolina that we were not familiar with. We saw five beautiful waterfalls that we never knew were there. Each was beautiful in its own way. The ride on the parkway was amazing with vistas overlooking valleys and scenic views of mountains. We can't thank you enough for this experience. We appreciate your attention to safety during the rain on the way home. We look forward to the fall colors trip Suzanne and Byron

We had an absolutely wonderful time with Line and Terri. They did a tremendous amount of work preparing for the weekend waterfall tour and were extremely knowledgeable with regards to the local history and beautiful spots off the beaten path. Line and Terri were incredibly flexible with our interests, easy to quickly establish a warm rapport with, and emphasized safety and professionalism in all aspects of the trip. It was a fantastic weekend and the highlight of my vacation in North Carolina. I highly recommend NC Touring. – Matt R.

Line and Terri are pros at creating relaxing get-aways. From the tranquility and beauty of nature to the camaraderie around a blazing campfire, NC Touring can make the stresses of your everyday life just melt away. Their expert planning has you enjoying a great ride and viewing some of North Carolina’s most scenic vistas. – Mike and Cheryl

You Provide What ?!?

NC Touring provides your tent, sleeping bag, and padWhat makes us unique is introducing people to the world of camping and motorcycling with little needed by you. For the majority of our tours, we will provide, transport, and setup your camping accommodations! That's right, all you have to do is ride and then enjoy spending the night in the great outdoors.

Lunch and breakfast stops will be along the routes, and we can point you in the right direction for wonderful dining experiences. For those that truly want to rough it, you can join your Tour Leader grilling out at the campground. We always have a campfire and marshmallows!

Before you invest in multiple bags to carry gear, and the gear that goes with it, you can try it out and see if motorcycle camping if for you. We also consider ourselves "gear heads" so we can give you the latest information on what is available to motorcycle campers and where to purchase your own equipment. (read a review of the Mountain Hardware Drifter 3 tent here)

Finally, when you finish your tour, each every rider will get to keep their own camp pillow. Come see how much fun motorcycling and camping can be!
