Recently our Why We Ride Facebook page, we posted a photo of a cool motorcycle drawing and asked our followers to share their motorcycle art. Lets just say, some Why We Ride fans are not only talented riders, but talented artists. Check out how these artists express their love for riding with paint, ink, airbrush, and even food.

Kimberley Guilmette is inspired again and again to draw detailed images of her bike from her point of view. “My take on paisley on my Royal Enfield tank…after a ride, listening to my fav tunes..this is what happened…again, with sharpie.”

Paula Yetman’s daughter painted this colorful and loud painting of Paula’s 97 Heritage. What a wonderful gift idea for those mamas who ride!

Red, White and Blue Ridge

The Fourth of July is upon us, which means our American fans will be cooking out, watching fireworks shows and celebrating Independence Day.

To celebrate the day of red, white and blue, we thought we would share some of your photos from the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Tail of the Dragon is, of course, an iconic stretch of road. With 318 curves in 11 miles, conquering it is a rite of passage for many a motorcycle rider. But there are plenty of other spectacular rides through the mountains, like the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Cherohala Skyway.

We’ll get started with a virtual tour of The Tail of the Dragon. First up is this scenic picture from Achim Franz.

Kenneth James shows us that lean angle helps if you’re trying to slay the Dragon.

And that twisty challenge isn’t just for sportbike riders and lightweight bikes. Plenty of big bikes are capable to taking on those curves, as Sohail Rezeq proves.

Cyn Tee shared this lovely view from Skyline Drive in Virginia, which winds through Shenandoah National Park.

Twelve miles, 160 curves and a 2,000-foot elevation drop are some of the things that make Devil’s Whip in North Carolina a popular riding spot. Jeremy Gilliland cranks his bike over along that section of NC State Road 80.

Paula Yetman proves that a beautiful Blue Ridge road doesn’t have to have a fancy name. There are plenty of roads in North Carolina that offer pristine views and lots of curves.

The Cherohala Skyway has been designated a National Scenic Byway. If you’ve ever ridden its 40-plus miles, you understand why. If you haven’t been there yet, Esteban Rottenberg can tell you what an amazing ride it is.

Karen Bataille shows us why the Blue Ridge Parkway continues to be a favorite ride on the East Coast.

At 5,946 feet in height, Grandfather Mountain is the tallest peak on the eastern side of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Kathy Harrison captured this view overlooking the land for miles around.
