Fall Appalachian Riding Tour (FART) - Sept 16-20 Newport, TN

Recommended Posts

RandyShields

Chris/Burt, sorry to hear you can't make it.  Hopefully you will stay dry; it looks like Tropical Storm Sally will be turning into a hurricane, then spinning right up over top of the FART riding area.  Current forecast has rain from Wed night through Friday morning.  Hopefully it won't stall out.  Better yet, maybe it swings west and leaves us alone.  Anyway, for those heading in, don't forget your rain gear!

Sad to say this but I am out also.  Hurricane remnants don’t bode well for riding.

Stay tuned folks, you can read all about it on the forum.  Hope to see you in January  OCTOBER (lunch,) Chris; hope to see you at START, Burt.

Cheers,

 

 

EDIT:  I meant October for SECFF lunch.  January??  WTH?   I guess I am subconsciously trying to get 2020 over with.   Sheesh.  :ohboy:

Well, it looks like Sally has slowed and may move more east than north, which might spare us a bit!

Looks like LA (Lower Alabama) is going to catch heck. I'm thinking this might scoot under us!  Tomorrow  morning  I am going to head up and reverse the Bushy State Pen route. I might catch a bite at the Wardens table if I get though after they open.

SCHEDULE CHANGE!

Mr. Zoom's last ride has been moved to 4pm today (Thursday). While it may still be drizzling this afternoon, the rain should be lighter and we'll have the advantage of full daylight. The ride is very short and the a gathering at the Foothills Parkway will be brief. Please join  us and Mr Zoom's family for this brief tribute. We'll meet up in the parking area beside the pool.

Couple more pics from the Mr. Zoom Memorial.  I did not meet him and was thankful to pay tribute.  Thank you for sharing his life with me.

 

PEACE!

Thank you for all those that were able to participate in Rich Elarde's (Mr. Zoom's) last ride!   I am very disappointed that I could not attend this years FART and  be a part of this tribute to him.  I had the pleasure of riding and sharing many meals with Rich over 15+ years of meeting up with him at BMWST events..

Thanks so much for an enjoyable evening.  It makes me appreciate our friends who are no longer with us.  Paul Winter introduced me to Ken and let me ride with them on a fast technical.  Learning is always fun.

Here's a quick video of a run up into Hot Springs. These are all shot in HiDef - so if you video is shows blurry - increase the screen resolution by clicking on the gear in the lower right corner of the video box.

Thanks for the “GS123” route.   TN 32 looked like it had been paved and painted one hour before we rode it, no cars.   
 

thanks to all.

Good morning,

 

Great to see everyone. Fabulous few days but rather emotional at times so a special thank you to you all for your care and kindness. Below is a link to the photos I took and a few videos (found at the end). Please download the gallery or images that you want as soon as you're able. I'll have the link up for about a week but will then have to delete at some point as I have limited space on my Dropbox.

Big hugs, take care and hope to see you all again in the not too distant future

Nikki
