This Day Ride from October 13, 2009 is re-posted here from our old website:
Tuesday is our day off and we woke to cool weather and cloudy skies- but at least it wasn’t raining. A great day to take off on a ride.
We rode to Halls and got on 331 and rode to Blaine- stopping to eat lunch at Breeding’s Restaurant.
From Blaine we went North on 11W to Rutledge where we hit 92.
Further on down 92, we stopped in to see our bike painter David Hurst.
If you’ve ever seen some of the restored vintage bikes- or the custom Harley’s in our store- David is the painter. His shop- “Slide Effects” is right on 92 between Rutledge and Cherokee Dam. Over the years, we’ve tried several different painters- and without a doubt, David Hurst is the best painter we’ve ever commissioned. Next time you’re in Biker Rags, check out the “Bathtub Bike”, the yellow Triumph chopper or the Cafe Gold Wing. These are just a few of the bikes David’s done for us.
After taking up too much of David’s time- we got back on the bikes- continued on 92 , then jumped onto 375 that runs right by Cherokee Lake all the way to 25E.
While on 25E, we stopped and took a few more photos.
From 25E, we rode through Morristown- and took 11E back to Knoxville. On the way home, the sun even popped out for a few minutes.
We rode 107 miles round trip and it was a great day to be on the bikes. Cool but not too cold- overcast but no rain.
