Tail of the Dragon. Hellbender. The Rattler. The Devils Triangle. The Cherohala Skyway. The Blue Ridge Parkway. You’ve heard of them all. If you’ve got a bucket list, they’re all on it. Some of the best motorcycle roads in the country. Well, saddle up and join us, ‘cuz we’re gonna hit ’em all ! (and so, so many more)

Departing from Fix River Harley, early on the morning of Saturday, July 25th. We’ll meet at 6:30, and leave at 7:00am.

Day 1- Hammer down. We’re just gettin’ the hell outta here ! Our goal for the day is about 500 miles to Corbin, Kentucky.

Day 2- Let’s get off the damn highway, and see if we can find some decent back roads from Corbin down to Cherokee, North Carolina. We will base here for a few days.

Days 3 thru 5- Ride all the tasty mountain backroads that we can fit into three days. We will go out of, and return to our hotel in Cherokee Monday thru Wednesday.

Day 6- We’ll pack up and leave Cherokee, and make our way towards Nashville, Tennessee. We will end up in Franklin, which is about 20-25 minutes out of downtown.

Day 7- Let’s start at the top of the Natchez Trace, and head down a ways, then explore our way back to Franklin. At that point, depending on the state of “openness” of the downtown Nashille area, we can head downtown and party it up a bit. I’m trying to organize a shuttle for us, or we can Uber.

Day 8- sadly, it’s time to pack it up and head north. I would envision a few people that may want to just hammer all the way home from Nashville on Saturday. For those that want to enjoy a little more riding, I am planning on taking us back up thru the hills of Tennessee and Kentucky, working our way back into Illinois. I do not have a specific destination in mind, but am thinking we’ll make it back as far as Marion, Il. We can decide this last minute.

Day 9- pretty much just cruise all the way back home. I would expect to return early to mid afternoon on Sunday the 2nd of August.

We have set aside a block of rooms for all but the last night. Here is the hotel info, so call and make your reservations. They all have 24 hour cancelations, so, if by some chance the world gets shut down again, we can scrub the mission.

It is my understanding that all 3 hotels have the space to give us more rooms if needed.
If I make concrete plans for the Saturday night on the way home, I will add them.

This is going to be a great trip. For those of you that have not yet experienced a chapter trip, you need to come see what you’re missing. If you have any questions about the trip, or the plans I have made, don’t hesitate to reach out to me, at Jparent1972@yahoo.com, or message me, on facebook.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all then !
