Greensboro, North Carolina is the springboard for some of the most beautiful motorcycle country a biker could wish for. North of The Boro is Lake Townsend and beyond that, Browns Summit, Haw River State Park and Greensboro National Golf Club. Don’t forget to take a ride to the Birkhead Wilderness Route where you’ll pass the American Classic Motorcycle Museum. The state of North Carolina is home to dozens of national and state scenic byways.
We are privileged to be able to hop on our hogs and tour the Blue Ridge Parkway with its spectacular mountain views, amazing waterfalls and blazing displays of colorful flowers and foliage. Ample camping facilities exist if you want to stay awhile and take in the views.
If you're more in the mood for coastal plains, check out the Outer Banks Scenic Byway, a short distance from Greensboro. North Carolina 12 and US 70 take you out to the barrier islands via ferry. Notable features along this route include Cape Lookout and Cape Hatteras national seashores. Don’t forget to stop by Harley-Davidson of Greensboro before a road trip to get a thorough tune up and check out their great selection of riding gear.
There's no doubt about it, here in North Carolina we're spoiled for our choice of awesome riding country. Sadly, great riding doesn’t come without risks. In 2008, NC had the eighth highest fatality rate for motorcycle accidents. More than one-third of the deaths came from the state's most densely populated counties, including our own Guilford County.
Whether you're hitting Thursday night bike night at Mac's Speed Shop or heading to Chunk’s Hawg Haven with friends, there is always that unforeseen possibility you could end up in an accident. If this happens, it’s important to talk with a lawyer who really knows motorcycle accident law rather than just a general personal injury attorney who might not have the experience needed to get you the settlement you deserve.
Common Motorcycle Injuries
As motorcycle riders, we don't have a ton of metal to protect us in a collision, so it should come as no surprise that the most common injuries in motorcycle crashes are to the head. The lucky ones get away with nothing worse than a mild concussion, while others are left with debilitating brain damage and too many riders have their lives cut short.
Greensboro Motorcycle Attorney

I'm a passionate rider myself, and my only concern is to make sure you get the justice you deserve. Make sure you talk to us before you speak with an insurance company representative or sign any documents. Contact us in Greensboro or throughout NC at (877) 376-7982 for a free consultation.
