Ran into a couple guys out for a ride, enjoying the crisp fall weather along the Blue Ridge Parkway outside of Little Switzerland, North Carolina. Their bikes were eye-popping, and they had driven nearly 100 miles from Sevierville, TN.
Though these geriatric skooters are amazing, I wish they’d stay in TN. Their dang loud pipes sound like a war zone on the Blue Ridge Parkway (a National Park meant to preserve nature). They terrify deer and wildlife, in a place where they should be able to find peace. I’ve tried get these folks to explain the reason for their love of loud Harleys, but the only answer I can dig out is “because…”.
Saw many Harleys out on my ride, with a substantial increase in trikes. Prices for these shiny beasts approach $30,000, and personally I’d choose a Miata convertible to escape the wind and the rain. But these guys surely wouldn’t be caught dead in a Miata.
This car shows a “convenient” way to carry your lunch. Thanks to Mr. W.G. Shular for being a fearless artist.
