Looking For Motorcycle Adventure? See The Wild Smoky Mountains With GSM Moto Rent


Remember all that fun you had as a kid learning to ride on that dirt bike? Maybe you’ve dreamed of challenging the wilds like Charlie and Ewan, taking the Long Way Round ? Already riding a dual sport bike and looking for motorcycle adventure? Whether you prefer just tooling along on the pavement, groomed fire roads, or gnarly single track trails, you can find them near Townsend, Tennessee.

GSMmotoRent offers dual sport motorcycle rentals, guided & self guided tours and cabin rental on the Little River: All within a half mile of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

We invite you to ride some of the greatest paved and gravel roads around! Everyone knows about our great roads in East TN and Western NC, such as the Tail of the Dragon, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Cherohala Skyway, all within an hour or less from our base in Townsend, TN.

But if you want to really avoid the crowds and get in some great motorcycle riding off the beaten path– let GSMmotoRent help. Our fleet includes Kawasaki KLR 650’s, Suzuki DR 650 and 200’s. We can provide the equipment, and with our knowledge of the area provide you with the best routes that fit your needs. On-site river front cabin rental is available as well as transportation to and from the Knoxville, TN regional airport. We also offer secure storage for your bike: short or long term.

The bikes were in great shape and well maintained. We had an unbelievable day riding 180 miles of excellent paved and unpaved roads in and around Smoky Mountain National Park. We arrived back at GSM in the late afternoon very happily tired. We all agreed it was one of the most enjoyable motorcycling days we’ve ever had. This was our first experience with GSM MotoRent and it could not have been better. Dan and Debbie are wonderful people and run a top-notch outfit. Thanks,
Joe Nardy

Myrtle Beach’s Loss is Asheville’s Gain

Come Ride the best of the Blue Ridge Parkway

Honda has cancelled Knoxville’s Honda Hoot. Myrtle Beach has closed the door on motorcycle events. The motorcycle industry struggles through hard times. Just when it seems darkness has fallen over the southeast a brilliant light shines at the end of the tunnel – the Asheville Bikefest – The Blue Ridge Run.

I got a call last week from a representative of the Motorcycle Industry Council requesting I participate in a new event. Still stinging from the loss of venue at Myrtle Beach, they’ve been quietly planning and arranging something better, meeting with officials from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the National Park Service, authorities and resources in and around Asheville, North Carolina, to launch the Asheville Bikefest. It’s time to let the cat out of the bag.

It couldn’t be better news both for motorcycle friendly Asheville, the Motorcycle Industry Council, and motorcycle riders in the region. Let’s face it, Myrtle Beach was all about “park the bike and hit the sands”. The riding, well, there really wasn’t anything to speak of. Putt putt here, putt putt there, whoopee.

The Asheville Bikefest will be anything but “park the bike”. Located in the hub of some of the most extraordinary mountain motorcycle rides, right on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and surrounded by thousands of miles of the best motorcycle rides including the Tail of the Dragon, the Cherohala Skyway, the Land of the Waterfalls, the highest mountains in the east, and some of the most challenging and beautiful motorcycle roads found anywhere, what better place could there be?

Set aside May 13 -16, 2010 on your calendars. Plan a few days either side if you can. Come test ride the new models, enjoy the shows and entertainment, and use the sun tanning oil on your leathers. This event is all about the ride.
