The long awaited 2017 Ring of Fire Ride took place on Sunday, August 20!

Bubba Boswell led a ride of at least 130+ bikes from Ring of Fire H-D in Madison heading to The Bull and Thistle in Gainesboro, TN.

I don’t think I was able to really grasp how big this ride was gonna be but my buddy Ray said, just wait and see. Here’s some pre-ride pix in the parking lot as riders kept rolling right up to the last minute.

Tennessee on Two WheelsWe took some windy back roads with a few twists and turns that I wasn’t ready for but ended up doing well. I’m definitely not ready for Dragon’s Tail.

Just a couple of dudes who like to ride!

Oh, this was the Sunday before the big eclipse event and I couldn’t resist posting this space man pic I did of Ray. You might have seen it on my Instagram (@krandallwilcox) feed but here it is again.

After a bite to eat at The Bull and Thistle, Ray and I followed Bubba and Melissa back for a bit and eventually broke off and I got to log some more highway miles in on the 40 headed back to our house.

What an epic day with a big group of people.

I officially logged 3,250 miles as new rider at the end of this trip. Time for a 5K mile service and switch to synthetic.

Now that Fall is about to be in full swing, I cant wait to get back out on the road. Some trips coming up: Memphis, TN, the recently restored Castle & Key Distillery in Frankfort, KY, Jack Daniel’s Distillery in Lynchburg, TN.
