On Wednesday, September 24th, we took another Day Ride, but we did it with a little twist.

Instead of riding our motorcycles, we rode our scooters. Both of our scooters are 250cc with a top speed of around 70mph and a comfortable cruising speed of 55mph. They have small 12 inch tires, sit quite tall (about 5 inches taller than our motorcycles) and they handle differently.

We called this Day Ride our Scooter Adventure Ride!

Jeff kicks off our ride with this short video:

The day was perfect with blue skies and cool enough for a jacket. Our first destination was Pigeon Forge to play putt putt golf.

We rode the scooters through Knoxville and took Sevier Avenue through Island Home.

We continued through South Knoxville and onto Chapman Highway. We rode south on Chapman Highway to Seymour where we stopped to get our morning snack.

After our quick break, we took Boyd’s Creek into Sevierville where we took Old Knoxville Highway.

We took Old Knoxville Highway to downtown Sevierville. In Sevierville we took 66 to Pigeon Forge where we stopped to play putt putt at the Track Complex.

Jeff talks about our day so far in this short video:

Putt putt was a lot of fun! After our game we took Teaster Avenue through Pigeon Forge, then took 449 past Dollywood. We rode north into Sevierville and back to 66 where we took Allensville Road toward Douglas Lake.

We got turned around a couple of times but found some nice vistas!

Lost in Kodak. A pretty view!
