On this date in 1940 President Franklin Roosevelt dedicated the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, one of my favorite places to be. I recently took another motorcycle trip through my happy place, for the first time with a riding partner. Acie Lee Williams and I had a great time. I was thrilled to introduce him to fantastic riding roads.
Because this date falls on a Throwback Thursday I am featuring photos of some of my previous rides. This is the first bike I took, a Suzuki Burgman 400.
After several trips on “Sylvia” I acquired “Vicki,” my 2009 Victory Vision Arlen Ness Special Edition.
I have since taken several more trips on “Josephine,” my 2014 Can-Am Spyder RT – here is a shot from this most recent ride.
And my special guest rider on his 2019 Harley-Davidson Ultra-Classic.
There will certainly be future rides on my absolutely favorite roads in my favorite mountains. But for now, we need to ride on. Have a great Throwback Thursday!
