Run to Loafer's Glory

On September18, 2011 I made a run to Loafer's Glory, NC.  I had just mounted new tires on my airhead and what better way to scuff them in.

 On the way back I rode through the clouds to Mt. Mitchell.  Mt. Mitchell is the highest point in the United States east of the Rockies.  At over 6,000 feet it was cool and foggy.

RoK On Rally 2011

September 9-11 were the dates of the RoK (Riders of Knoxville) Rally in Del Rio, TN. I have gone to this rally several times over the past ten years and have always enjoyed it.

Friday evening Mr. Moore, a local historian, told stories of Civil War happenings in Cocke County, TN. 
On Saturday I took a ride and got to do some forest service roads in the Cherokee National Forest. At the closing ceremonies I won a pair of sun glasses with flames in chrome on the side. Just what every BMW rider wants!!!!

On Sunday morning I packed up and went to see the Christy Mission. This is the actual "holler" where the historical events took place that led to the creation of the "Christy" television show years ago.
