Imagine a lifestyle in which you park a Ferrari at a private boat slip, slide onto a custom yacht, and ferry it across a waterway to a private island hosting a 20-room mansion modeled after an Italian villa. Though this may sound like a dream only attainable by the mega rich or an heir to a chocolate-fountain fortune, Imagine Lifestyles facilitates such lavish accommodations with a cavalry of luxury vehicles, vacation homes, and yacht charters. They specialize in auto rentals, entrusting cars from brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Porsche, and BMW to drivers for as short as a half day or as long as several weeks. To shield these pristine and rare rides from the elements, they also deal in luxury vacation home rentals, ranging from beach mansions in Miami to chic lofts and high-rise penthouses. The service also charters air and sea transportation, including jets of all sizes and yachts for all occasions.
Referring to Harley-Davidson as a "brand" is like calling the Grand Canyon a ditch. Those who've hit the road atop these immaculate hogs know the romance within the tectonic rumble of these magnificent machines. And they understand that Harley-Davidson is more than a name?it's a way of life. For those who live to ride, Chattahoochee Harley-Davidson & Big Swamp Harley-Davidson is the destination for all things Harley. Kickstarted in 2000 by bike enthusiasts John and Marlise Cunningham, this franchise quickly became the hub of the Columbus motorcycle community thanks to its knowledgeable staff and licensed products. In 2005, the duo opened Big Swamp Harley-Davidson in Opelika, AL to give residents of Eastern Alabama their own Harley-Davidson destination.
The showroom is stocked with pre-owned and shiny new models of CVOs, Dynas, Softails, Sportsters, and Touring bikes, along with all the parts for repairs and upgrades.

And decorative items?such as clocks, barware, floormats, and even salt & pepper shakes?make a happy home an even happier, Harley-ier home.

Durhamtown Offroad Park's 6,750 acres of pine forest lets drivers leave the pavement behind them as they veer onto dirt-covered tracks and wild trails. Dirt bikes, buggies, Jeeps, and ATVs all traverse the courses, winding through 150 miles of one-way trails and dodging wildlife (the park also offers hunting). First-time riders can rent vehicles for a day's sojourn in the park, which also consists of rock climbing, mud-bogging areas, and overnight lodging, while practiced drivers can bring their own rides and supplement their existing gear at the pro shop.
Trophy Ford summons an army of new and used vehicles, including a battalion of cars under $10,000, to guard its lots and showroom. In the service department, factory-trained technicians (who specialize in Fords, Lincolns, and Mercurys) work with genuine Motorcraft and Ford Motor Company parts, changing motor oil contaminated by dirt or piston gossip, fiddling with brakes, aligning wheels, and replacing dead batteries. The dealership has English- and Spanish-speaking staff on hand to deal with engines that idle in either language.
Two Wheel Adventures owner Chris Carr's love of motorcycles has driven him to adventures including becoming the 2011 AHRMA Middleweight Superbike National Champion, careening into authordom with Street Riding Secrets, and bestowing his knowledge of motorcycle handling on budding enthusiasts with a series of introductory classes. Together with a team of moto-enthusiasts, he leads courses that run the gamut from two-hour introductions to motorcycling or scooter skills to two-day basic riding courses, motorcycle street-savvy sessions, and licensing courses. For certain courses, students can borrow one of the motorcycles from Two Wheel Adventures' stable of 250cc Kawasaki Ninjas, Honda Nighthawks, and Yamaha XTs, rather than scrounging up a borrowed bike or attaching a motor to a unicycle.
