Hey guys/gals....
My lady and I are due for a vacation coming up in October, and she really wants to go to the area of Hilton Head, South Carolina (near Savannah)....anyway other than the tourist crap....is there any motorcycle related stuff to do or see during that time of year? any of you southern locals speak up please and let me know how I can be entertained other than sitting in a hotel, drinking etc!

She always thinks its pretty neat when I get feedback from JJ about this kind of stuff, as she likes the scene, she just doesnt ride herself.

thanks in advance!

Check Savannah harley calendar. Alot of nice places to ride from savannah. 119. 208/280 towards Claxton where you can go to Benton Lees steak house on river. I live west of savannah about 45 minutes there is alot of nice riding. Ride 17 to Jekyll island or saint simons island. Eat at mud cat Charlies.

Hilton Head literally is an island off of the coast of South Carolina. Savannah isn't exactly a short trip away and as far as rentals, you might find a scooter. It's pretty low-key there and there are a lot of families and old people. If your bike isn't with you, I would just enjoy a week in the sun, drinking.

bummer....anything near me (when Im there) that we could still travel to and see (we will probably rent a car)

but yes, when all else fails look at water and have some drinks.

I am on the next island north of HHI, in Beaufort. There is not a lot right close to HHI due to such an amazing number of tourists. Savannah scene has come and gone over the years. You have a few indy shops, one in Bluffton and the one I work in here, but neither of the shops have much of a show room (ha!)....basically just function as repair/builds etc.
You can rent from the dealership in Savannah if you wanted to. I have to ride over to HHi every three weeks or so, and it is hazardous with so many older tourists lost in the haze.
It is a great place to visit though. Tybee Island GA is the next island south, check out the Breakfast club there for chow before 1300. Like someone mentioned already, it takes some time to get off the islands, so Savannah is 45 minutes plus from there.
Sorry I can't give you better news, but you will have a good time away from it all here.

so what shop do you work at? Might be nice to maybe find a "piece" to bring home or just get to talk bikes!

Sinks...There is some stuff to do and see here but mostly tourist stuff. If you are a "history buff" or into old stuff...you will find things to keep you busy. Tybee Island is a nice getaway (beach), as for "rides"...I dont associate with any clubs or groups here....Though riding around here can be hazarduos to your health with people not watching the road!!

Beaufort Cycles....you are more than welcome to stop by but there is only a small area for customers. Just 1200 sq ft building and there are three techs so most of the space is shop. I wish I could tell you we kept older parts there, but we keep them at the house and storage if they are worthy!

Beaufort is a cool town for history, and chillin' by the bay. Just not a bike Meca....to put it mildly!
