When I met Laurie many years ago one of the first things we did together was to go to the Wings Over The Smokies Gold Wing rally in the western NC mountains. She had a yellow Honda 750 Nighthawk and I got a blue one shortly after we met. (I met her on AOL, remember those days?)
We have gone to a few more over the years and decided to attend the 2017 rally this weekend as a shake down trip for our upcoming 3 week cross country trip starting next weekend (check back here for updates from that trip).
The rally is not as big as it has been in the past but we still enjoy attending to walk through the vendor area, meet old friends and ride in the beautiful NC mountains. Below are some photos with comments from this weekend.
We have never been on this road but it was beautiful. We did it slow and easy and have made mental notes to return next year in mid October to enjoy the fall colors.
