Skyline Drive, Blue Ridge Parkway, Knoxville T.N. & Ohio City
 
So, a couple of weeks ago my buddy and myself decided to get some modifications done on our bikes, so why not make a ride out of it. First we rode Skyline Drive, and then we rode the Blue Ridge Parkway. We both did this together a couple years ago before we met up with Tammy and the rest of the crew in Cherokee, and then we all rode together for a week. This time the weather was sunny and beautiful, unlike a couple years ago the four days we rode before we met up with everyone was raining most of the time. At least when we met up with everyone a couple years ago the rest of the trip was also sunny and beautiful.

What mod's you might ask............first Electrical Connection and now have a hidden switch which will enable to use the hazard lights (four ways) to work without the key in the ignition. I also have a red L.E.D. light beside the fog light switch to show if the fogs are on. This was a "what the heck" it's pretty cheap so why not. And the last modification was when I put on the brights, the fogs stay on also, so I get the most light power on very dark secluded roads. My buddy just picked up his new to him 2012 wing, and wanted to get Baker Wings installed.

It was a great trip overall!

Hey Lee, have you ever been before?
We never heard of Grandfather Mountain until some one mentioned it on one of the FB groups I'm in.

Lewis looked after us at Electrical Connections. Great guy to deal with.

Never heard of it until the Meet & Greet . There are no gravel roads involved, right ?

I know that was a great trip by your smiles all the way.

I've ridden both the Skyline and Blue Ridge. Two of the most beautiful rides on the east coast along with the Tail of the Dragon. Thanks for the pics. They bring back so great memories..

I have actually bought from them before and didn't realize they had a place in Knoxville. So, if I wanted to add some lighting, they would install it on site? That's awesome!!! I will calling them this summer. Thanks Pal

Nice ride, thanks for sharing. Sorry we passed each other somewhere along the way and couldn't meet up.

Grandfather Mountain is only 11 miles form Banner Elk, where we will be based the last weekend of this month. I was going to ride to Linville Falls and should add a ride up the mountain also. Maybe I'll follow Lee up there for a smoke.

What was the smoke in the pictures? Dark smoke is never good....
