Trail of Tears riders

My riding buddies Larry C. and Larry T. ride the Trail of Tears motorcycle ride every September and I try to join them on the second night of the ride in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I have ridden to meet my riding buddies in Hot Springs several times before but this was the first time Janet rode with me. Before this trip was over it would be many firsts for Janet.

  1. The first time to ride in a large group (250+ bikes)
  2. The first time riding in rain
  3. The first time riding in strong wind
  4. The first time to ride the last leg of the Trail of Tears Motorcycle ride

Route 66 National Museum Elk City OK Sept’06

This year Larry C. was having back problems and wasn’t able to make the ride… Bummer… Larry wanted to chance it but all involved convinced him to sit this one out. The up side is that Larry T.’s wife Shirley rode with Larry. Shirley is always fun to ride with…

The Trail of Tears motorcycle ride starts in Chattanooga, Tennessee and goes to the trail’s end. The second leg of the ride ends in Hot Springs. The last leg continues the next day and ends somewhere in Oklahoma. This year it was ending in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. We will ride the last leg and from there we  will continue on to the Palo Duro Canyon in Texas.

  1. That looks GREAT!

  2. Not a lot you can do about the weather but you still had a good ride by the sounds of it.

    • It was good and we have memories and we learned a few thing about riding… I don’t mind the weather as long as we are prepared… It’s always an adventure…
