  • Nashville Road Kill Ride In . . . . . The True Story

    So after months of waiting and losing the sticky from the top of the Trike page throwing everyone into a quandary as to whether the event was still on or not, the date finally arrived and Trikers headed out the door or garage, on their way to Nashville. Many were spending those hours behind the handlebars wondering just how this year could get any better after last year. Well, let me just say . . . . . . .

    http://www.triketravelers.com/nashvi...d-kill-ride-in

    That this year’s Nashville Road Kill Ride In was most certainly “COOL.!!!” Very cool as a matter of fact for a certain organizer who may have thought, mistakenly I might add, that he was about to end the gathering getting away “clean,” and unscathed from his antics of last year. BUT NO, this guy was dirty I tell ya and as they say, “revenge is best served . . . . . . . COLD!!!!!!!!!!

    Now, before I move on, I would be remiss if I did not report that it was clear that Doc was once again on the prowl. Seems this stately Trike rider is actually a sturdily, crafty, sly sliver fox that can almost always be found with a good looking young lady on his arm, or, in some cases, in her arms.

    But I digress.

    This year’s gathering made clear that the word was getting out about how much fun us Trikers can have when we pull into town. Yes, a few two wheelers attempted to infiltrate the fun and frivolity that sets our gatherings apart from those snoozer two wheeler checker and coloring book parties. BUT, word DID got out, and as Trikers have proven to be quick with the twist of the throttle, one of our wheeless wantabees found themselves . . . . . . . . .


    However out of the goodness of our inclusive hearts, we slowed down and waited for the freshly retired Navy man to see if he could get that two wheeler of his up on plain and full steam ahead.

    The gang found our way down to the small, did I say, “extremely small, little, tiny town of Blue Buckle, TN. This neat little place is known for a few things. One, is that it is very small. Two, the buildings date back to 1870, three, and this brought back scary memories for a few who attended, they have a couple of STERN, OLD, NO NONSENSE Boarding Schools in the area. However, the best part of what this town is known for is . . . . . . . . .

    Now in an old town like this, one can and should expect a little storytelling. Of course one has to ask . . . . . “is this a True Story and is this going to take long?”
    Apparently, maybe a little too long for one of our members.

    Finally the call was made to “SADDLE UP” and everyone fired up the Trikes and off to the Jewel of TN . . . . . . the Jack Daniels Distillery and Town Square. Once everyone was safely settled into the dinning establishments, shops, stores, ice cream shop, or leather outlet of their choice, the skies opened up and it poured, just not what I had hoped for. Who said Lynchburg was a dry county. LOL

    Now, wanting to try and help our two misguided two wheelers feel more comfortable, and give them access to something that they soooooo look forward to at each of “their” gatherings, efforts were made to give them a chance to have some “excitement.”


    Recognizing how “challenged” at least one of them felt, we lined up a suitable challenger so as to make him feel like he had a chance. Getting his opponent to make a move will be like “pulling teeth, ” so we “thought” he could handle that.

    Something new this year that was added was the first ever Triker Fashion Show. Our very own Ken and Barbie . . . . . ah . . . I mean Martha brought down the house with their wild and exotic amphibian ensemble: Ode to the Wild side, FROG TOGG. Everyone was jumping with excitement and leaped at the chance to touch and feel the . . . . . fabric . . . . .yeah, fabric I tell ya.

    If I heard this once . . . . . I must have heard this a thousand times! “Would the real Phil please stand up!”

    Did I mention anything about Doc and his being a chick magnet?

    Triker ladies are a very refined and savvy passenger I tell ya. These ladies know a little something about how to travel and they really know what the true order of how your meal should be served. Ice Cream anyone?

    I must say that while it was FANTASTIC that my good buddy George Patrick and his lovely bride Tammy arrived from Texas, we did have to sit him down and share with him that things are “done” a little differently here in Nashville while at a BBQ. I should also share that one of the wait staff was overheard saying that “not everything is bigger in Texas.” Not really sure what that was all about. LOL


    Well, the gathering was coming to a close and it was time to congratulate a coconspirator . . . . ah, I mean accomplice . . . . no . . no . . . . I mean a good friend who helped me out with a “little cool project” I needed help with. Thanks Johnny for helping out, as well as Tony and George Patrick.


    The time had sadly come where we called upon the maestro to orchestrate a safe and well organized departure. The only thing missing was the orange flashlights and a couple of bags that did not make the flight . . . . oh wait . . . . .I did see a few bags in the back of the truck.
    Of course Doc was hugging a kissing ALL the ladies good-by.

    Hugs, handshakes, will wishes, and general good cheer was exchanged by those that attended and then it was time to hit the open road to head home and plan what cappers, jokes, laughs and good fun for next year. It was a blast and of course yours truly once again had a blast. That’s my True Story, and I am sticking to it.

      Well now, I do rightly appreciate y'all waiting a wee bit for me - especially considering it was YOU who told me to meet y'all at a location that was but a mere 15 miles away from the right one. And don't be spinning no story about how a visitin' Marylander was giving directions to a former Michigander for a location in Tennessee. As they say down here - "that dog don't hunt".

      But I did enjoy the company I was with :p

        Wheels, fantastic write up. Great pictures and story telling. I am not sure if this is a true story or based on a true story. But I do agree that this was one great weekend.

          Great story Wheels. So people who visit our State don't get lost it is Bell Buckle, TN, not Blue Buckle.

            Good write up and pictures, I could post a few pics if we knew where Becky left her camera. Now about the true story..............and about the moral of the story.......what can I add except that Randall said he had both the Corvette and the other. Now about the directions Randall gave as to where to meet....what can I say.

                Becky,

                I'll bet Charley threw the camera in the trash so no one would see our picture. For shame Charley.

                Glad to see you again. What a great time at RKRI this year with you guys present. Ride Safe. Doc

                  Very satisfying Read Jimmy. Masterfully crafted so well it is virtually impossible to discern the Bull from the Crap

                  Picture of George is proof that Texans are indeed quite "fond" of them Bushes. :p
                  Perhaps TOO fond me thinks...

                  P.s. Very thoughtful of you to include Pictures so the Earl of Oil could follow it and enjoy as well.

                      Great catching up with you and having the chance to meet your lovely bride and share a meal at the new "Dry Dock." Thanks!

                          Kit - you pot stirrer. :p You know a Navy Chief has more self respect than that - to try and hide behind a bush for his business. That sounds more like what a Navy Captain would do.

                                Pat,
                                The exact place in Nashville hasn't been announced, other than it will be south of the city. The rumor going around was that it was going to be a Woodstock like event on Missouri Charley's Farm. Can't you just see it. A Senior Citizens Hippe Event. "This is the dawning of the age of.............". All kidding aside, I believe the dates are July 3-6, 2015. I'm doing this from memory, and @66 my wife says it's questionable.

                                  I say, "between Bruce and Jim, we have the BEST". I vote YES on the true story. Sounds good to us. Not sure Missouri Charley's farm(ranch) can handle this group next year))) Wish it was SEPT 2015 already. Everybody stay healthy and safe so we can see you soon. J&R aka johnny and ruthie))

                                      I believe the dates that Randall mentioned was September 4-6, which will be the same weekend as Wing Ding that is being held in Huntsville, AL which is just a short ride for us Trikers down the road. This way, we can still have the ride in and those that want to stop in for the Wing Ding can do that as well given that it will not be that far away. About 100 miles or so. Wing Ding is September 3-6.
