Dave D and Doorag Dave from Detroit
John, our leader...
Doug came along for the ride. 3 to 1 he'll be back.
50 to 1 Doug brings Linda with him. We'd miss her if she didn't show up!
Chick magnet Dave D can't go anywhere without sexy chicks like Mildred bangin' on his door.
John's machine of choice - a Yamaha FJR1300
Dave D. obviously thought it was going to be a rougher ride than normal. He brought the BMW GS1200. The 50cc Aprilia probably would have been taxed beyond it's limits.
Doorag Dave has a sexy ride too! He chokes it too much, but apparently the bike likes the risk.
The bikes a few years old but just as reliable as it's owner - Jimmy...
And there he is, Father Time himself...Jim McD. Relax girls, he's not related to the restaurant with the golden arches except that he eats there.
Mike rolled in early for half a day's ride proving once again that work sucks!
Mike's ride a Kawasaki KLR 650. What is it that Mike and Dave know about the Great Smokeys that the rest of us are in the dark about?
And there we have it! From right to left - Beauty and the Beast. Kevin's Gold Wing and Doug's rented Harley. Doug was good. He didn't ride in the dirt with it or anythng!
Headed towards Heaven on Thursday, our first day...
Jose's Cantina in Gatlinburg, Tennessee... We'll be back!
Break time on the Blue Ridge Parkway
The Master, himself, Jimmy McD
For those in the know, this sign is enough to start salivating!
An innocent enough scene until you look closer...
Oh my! Yessir, Mr. Sheriff! Whatever you say!
The infamous Tree of Shame. Bits and pieces to remind all who ride the Tail of the Dragon that she's a beast that can be ridden but never tamed.
