Visions of the South

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.


Nevertheless, looking at them leaves me full of wonder, and I’m glad there are people in the world who do such meaningful, nutty things and these are some of the best artists I’ve seen in a while. 


This car shows a “convenient”  way to carry your lunch.  Thanks to Mr. W.G. Shular for being a fearless artist.
