Does Knoxville count???~!Awesome!


I ride the Smokies and the Skyway with my brother in law and my sister who live in Maryville...He has a Wide Glide (I think) and she has a 1200 Sportster Custom....I've got a '06 Road Glide

I'm sure we'll pass on the road:thumbsup:

Where in east tn are you located. I am from Bristol but live in central/northern va. Will get down that way some this summer since brother and mom still there. Brother rides a lot down there. Rusty Turner, do you know him? He does custom car rebuilds as well as works on Harleys.

yep i think it was 2 weekends ago we were out on the foothills parkway headed toward chillhowie, hung a right and headed into maryville

i was on the old sporty, had a friend on a newer sporty, another on a duece and another on a green shovelhead and 2 hondas

never been to smoky mountain harley for the saturday night deal, sounds like something to do though!!

have ya ever been to barbarosa bike bar outside of newport on the river? pretty cool little place, they have camping right there next to it in the summer, usually at least 40 bikes there on a slow day can get up around or even over 100 on a busy day

Never been to Barbosa Bike Bar....That sounds like a BLAST. Do you have a phone # for them to make reservations or is it just show up and camp?

The OL would really dig something like that in the summer (mid 80's thing again :whistle: ) and it would be a ?prty: to get together up in the Newport area and go ride!!!

we are thinking of heading over to barbarosa today, my wife actually wants to take a ride with me today (somewhat rare..she hates my seat) so we may head out with the shovel head and the newer sporty (blue 2004 883)

i hear ya on the wife liking the warmer weather, my wife thinks i'm crazy for riding to work in the cold but i go nuts if the weather keeps me off the bike

will ask about camping in the summer, i dont think it's a reservation type thing but i will ask

we are also planning on going to the spring cherokee run and possibly taking a tent to that also, ever been to that? heard they got great prices on parts and other stuff during that event

latest pic of my bike...

well just got back from the ride, we did end up going there today

turns out he sold the land he used for camping but is working on the opposite side land for the same deal

will get more info, did find out they have a cabin and 2 other things to stay in there but that was from the waitress, bob who owns it was running around like crazy so i didnt get to ask whats gonna happen, no sweat though, i'll find out!!

so, today was a late start but we did get over there and get a digital pic for ya to see the out side and just the pool table part of the inside, theres tables to the right of the pool table pic and a big deck outside, people including myself have signed the walls and damn near everything else inside so bring a marker!! hehehe... bikes were still coming in as we left at around 4 this afternoon

it ended up being me and the wife, dude with the shovel head and dude with the 883 sporty, while we were there shooting pool and having a cold one we discussed the cherokee spring run, looks like it's a go

few pics

first, the outside with an old honda on the roof, it was built out of an old pole barn....
