This is the first time we’ve gone to March Moto Madness – I had no idea how great the Smoky Mountains Tennessee dirt riding is! The guys have been there but I hadn’t. I had not been on my dirt bike in over a year so I needed to get my legs back under me but this was the perfect place to do that. We mostly rode dirt roads and the trails we hit were not too technical, but it gave me the confidence and desire to ride a lot of dirt this year. Such a good time!
My man was in Daytona for a couple weeks riding, hanging out with his brother, and waiting on a major truck overhaul that we decided needed to be done to keep it running for a few hundred thousand miles more. I had been working long hours and traveling a lot, so he made sure to take my bike down to the beach so I could fly in and get a ride while he was there. I flew in on a Fri evening, rode all day Saturday, and flew back out on Sunday. Totally worth it to get the smell of salt air and warm weather riding in! I needed it!
Today is a rainy day – the perfect kind of sitting down and reflections and planning 2019 riding events! I applied for the Rev’It US Women’s team so this got me motivated to add some riding memories pictures in this blog and motivate for 2019 stories!
Enjoy these pictures!
Most of our vacations are planned around riding. In 2018 we rode down to Atlanta, Georgia. On our way back to Virginia we detoured a bit and rode the entire Blue Ridge Parkway, starting in Cherokee, NC and ending in Afton, VA. We stayed one night in Little Switzerland to break it up a bit and enjoy some views, reprieve from the rain that evening and a bit of bourbon by the fire. This was the longest ride I have put on the Ducati Scrambler – Italia Independent. The Harley has been across country many times.
