Looking for South Carolina Riding Ideas

Heading back to Charleston, SC tomorrow with the wife and a minivan full of crap (and yes, I am trailering the bike) for the Christmas & New Years holidays with the in-laws. to escape from the inlaws, I usually get a few days for day trips. My usual is 78/178 toward Columbia or following 17 down to Savannah, GA or Beaufort. Where else should I look to go? Where are good riding roads? The Low Country is beautiful in it's own way, but I am used to hills and curves, which are in very short supply. Any dealers worth a visit? Thanks in advance!

Blessings, Zinc -

Yes, Thunder Tower HD just off I-20 in Pontiac, SC, just east of Columbia, where I bought my first new Harley! The Preston's are a great bunch of people

Thanks. I agree that they are good people. Rode their on my '08 Ultra a long time ago and they changed a rear tire while I waited.

When near the Beaufort area, be sure to check out the Old Sheldon Church near Yemassee, SC. A special place with a long history...

Growing up in the Lowcountry, I always enjoy riding out to the Beaches or around Edisto, & Young's Islands, not challenging, all flat, just some really nice rural roads meandering through the Salt Marshes, "smell the roses" type riding...

Good folks at Lowcountry HD!

If you ride down towards Savannah, you can jump over on 80 west and head toward Statesboro. Any roads off the main drag up there quickly turn into country roads with some dips and turns running through the cotton fields and cow paddies.
A ride in the other direction on 80 will take you out to Tybee Island . Not very exciting roads , but it's a visually pleasant ride.

Man, what a great plan that is! Get south out of the snow and ice and freezing temps from up north here with the scooter for a week. Get some riding in while at the in-laws. Let no one say you are not a smart dude! Safe travels.

Head up to Santee State Park then loop north around the north end of the lake (Wateree then Wedgwood) and drop back down through the Manchester State forest. That should give you about a 4 hour ride.
