Also had a quick trip to the Tail of the Dragon.
|2008 - Another trip to the Tail of the Dragon, this time with my Dad on his Harley Sportster and Ron. I got called from work to hurry home to fly to Jackson to see a client. I could not make it home in time, but I was 8 hours away by bike. Sent Dad and Ron home, cut my vacation short by a day and added a few more southern states to my travel list. Got to stop in to Tupelo and see my brother Eric.|
|2007 - The vacation plans were jumbled when I was hit. Foot injury but able to walk. Nighthawk totaled. Wifey said that the next bike had to be noticeable. So the 07 Goldwing was purchased. 2 trips down to see the Great Smokey Mountain National Park, and ride the Tail of the Dragon. 318 curves in 11 miles. First trip solo, and the second with my brother-in-law Ron, who rode his 89 Goldwing.|
|2006 - I purchased a used 1998 Honda 750 Nighthawk. Fun to ride and the price was well within my budget. Started out with small rides around the northern half of the state. Started making plans for longer rides in 07.|
