Back in June of this year we became the owners of new Yamaha V-Star 1300 motorcycle. After joining the owner's group, we signed up for Star Days in Chattanooga, TN. Since we hadn't been to that part of TN before we thought it would make a nice little trip. We didn't ride the bike all the way there, but instead used the new enclosed trailer and drove the truck south on I-65. After a major traffic jam in Nashville, we finally made it. We stayed a Hampton Inn that ended up being quite a nice place. Our little motorcycle trailer was quite the conversation piece and even led to us meeting a nice group of folks from south Georgia. We enjoyed riding and visiting some of the areas tourist sites with them. We rode the Incline, visited Ruby Falls and even Rock City. As a side trip on our way home, we drove to Tellico Plains, parked the truck, and ventured out into the Smokey Mtns on the bike. Even though the heavy fog on the Cherhola Skyway obscured the beautiful scenery, we made it to Deal's Gap and the "famous" Dragon (318 curves in 11 miles) The weather had cleared up by then and we conquered the "dragon". Despite my fears, Dennis proved he is a competent biker and we really enjoyed ourselves. We got only slightly wet on the remainder of our ride back to the truck and we made in back to Southern Indiana by 10:30 that night.
I am still experimenting with the this sight, so please be patient.
