We left last Wednesday early in the morning, traveling to Helen wasn’t a problem, we created a convoy of 6 cars all loaded with motorcycles and bikes related stuff, the trip was really fun, we were using walkie talkies, with no profanity on air, RULE #1, Public Safety agents can listen this frequencies and you can get in trouble.
We Started here, in Our Headquarters:
First day, ready to ride, we rally over a water park in Helen, talking about what you should do and what you shouldn’t, after a few minutes of talking we decided to hit the roads.
Counting in my original plan of 75% of time for photography and 25% for motorcycling, I have to say I was so wrong, when you get there, that roads get into you like a powerful drug, the most you fight of getting out of the bike, the most of time you want to be riding, is just like that, just realize that my original plan wasn’t that good, so I ended going the same direction of the river!,
We had some hardware stuff going on, one of the riders got a flat tire, so we have to wait for a while over a small town, then we head to Deals Gap, a Mecca of motorcycles over the Smokies, the place was packed with tourist from Quebec and theirs T-Rexes, and of course good looking girls:
The scenery, oh the scenery, what I have to say!!!, nothing I think, so beautiful I can not even describe it!!!
I wish I could have more time to stop for more photos, but like I said before, these road get you hard, so I am going to end the talking and get straight to the imagery, here is a little selection of the first day of Superbikes in the Smokies, more to come soon.
Glad to be back on track, have a great day!
