I stumbled across this & had to read the whole thing. You have a great writing style, kinda got a southern air to it. Y'all definitely get it rode....

I drove all over the south years ago but I'm thinking I am gonna have to ride back there about next year. Got a friend I went to school with lives in Norfolk & another in West VA someplace.

A lady out here has a Valk trike & she loves it. Makes a lot of the west coast rides on it.

Keep on riding & writing, and I'll keep on reading about 'em.

June 10-13 The Whiskey Run.......... A 2 part-er

Each year Highbinder and Smokin’Joe set up a big ride for our fellow Valkyrie Riders Cruiser Club …
This year was not different… This year’s destination was Bardstown, KY…

We headed out a day early (Thursday) as Highbinder (Don) thought if others are getting there early as well.. And Vrcc rep. should be there to greet them..



So we headed out early in the morning and on the way we picked up our neighbors .. And away we go…

Jackie decided that she would ride her Nighthawk 250….



We stayed on the US highways and only hit the super slab in Lexington, .Ky..
That NK was wide open… We kept her in the rocking chair (in between the 3 Valks) She did Great !! 304 miles one way... Riding with the big Valks...

A few of our buddies had showed up early as well.. So it was time to party at the pool…
Bandit (Don) & HotGlue(Mark)



Highbinder (Don) & Flamingo Babe (Charlyne)



ValkHound (Dana) brough stuff for making Banana splits… Ooo not that kind…



Oh I’m not going to tell you what’s in that bag ,But Bandit was guarding it well..



That evening Jackie was doused in celebration for her first long ride..
BTW that was ice water...



We all had a great time around the pool...
FenderMender (Charlie) Jackie's other half..


Friday morning we talked about what to do..



So a small group of us headed to check out Heaven Hill Distillery …
Heaven Hill has a nice old still set up inside of days gone by… Well no so fast…



Wow that’s a very nice display.. to rich for my pockets..



Once you take the tour then it’s off to the tasting room .. Yeah that’s what I’m talking about…




Hey is that a pink Dragon up there??



The area around Heaven Hill is kind of of cool…



The buildings in the back ground is where the whiskey/bourbon barrels are kept,
the area has a distinct smell about it.. SourMash !!



I liked this..




Don & I did a scouting ride for one route that he and Joe hadn't check in to yet ...For Saturdays group ride.
This way there was NO surprises. Beautiful countryside..



Back at the hotel for some more tire kicking ..
The rest of everyone showed up…



Hey lets go down town for a Ice Cream raid...
Oops no pix of that... Hmmm did it happen

But we did check out the Dinner Train..



I really liked this shot.. And so much I turned it in to a VRCC monthly calendar.



Then I spotted this sign ...Cool I did know we had a shop in KY.




Back to the pool for some parting time..





Bandit jump in.. we threw him a life ring..



That bag came back out ...Good to the last drop of them country squeezing...



That's all for now... Part 2 will be ready soon...

Whiskey Run ..Part 2 …..

Saturday morning staging..



And of course some tire kicking.. Ya always like to see what someone else has done to their Valk..



We had 60 bikes but a few riders heard that big rains where coming, and some locals just stopped by to say Howdy ..



Pibit headed home to Can... To try and beat some heavy rain up his way..


So we now left with 54 bikes in all… Heading to Makers Mark Distillery.. Ah time for Dragon herding… Highbinder takes point..



Wow !! That is some line of riders… That's our buddy Smokin'Joe behind me..



The group stayed together very well.. Highbinder is an excellent Dragon herder… We had other CB's in the group that really helps to keep a group of Dragons together.. Our buddies Thom & Mike rode Drag.They are wayy in the back...



Once we got to Makers Mark and settled down.. The Tour will start..



They have a very cool place ..



Inside the main house ,they serve you Lemonade.
and have a few cool artifacts..
Like this : 1851 Colt Given by Frank James to Ora Samules



The phone does work..Hello Sarah get me -----.....



Just a few photos of the sites..





The old way to move the barrels..



OK now to start the tour...



It get a 122* in this building !! They call this Copper Magic..




Our tour Guide tell us how's and why's to make Whiskey



Once in side wow did smell goodd!!!



The size of the Mash Tub 11421.5 Gals !! WOW !



We did get to taste the mash... Yes for real we could stick our finger in it ... Tastes just like the start of yeast bread..

Joe was getting ready to dive in..



Don said I hope NO one saw Joe dive in..



Hey Joe you in there ?? You ok Buddy? Joe ?? I see bubbles...



A special bottle being dipped in wax..



Someone dropped a full bottle ... You should have seen just how fast the Dragon riders cleaned up the floor.



Now to go to the Tasting room... Yeah !!!!



Mike was happy they gave him 2 !!!



I didn't have the heart to tell him we all got 2...
Maker's Mark and Maker's Mark Mint.. Not bad and chocolate also !



Dana was enjoying himself...



Frog was really having a good time..Before....



After.. LOL...



Yes there was a very nice Gift Shop as well..
Some folks got to wax dip there own bottles..



With that finished it was time to take in a little country side ride and eat at the River Bend State Park.. The rain was holding off...



We saw KY Burly Tobacco..



Soybeans.. Hey I can just graze here...



This part of KY is flat..



Once we snaked our way to The state park...



Bandit knows what's under a kilt .. He told the ladies



At this point my cameras batteries died...

Once we ate we where to go to the Corvette museum ,but it was so bloody hot that we all scattered like a covey of quail and headed back to the hotel..

Once back to the hotel everyone jumped in the pool



We sure had a grand time.. With our old and new friends..
Bikes ~Good Friends~Whiskey~Pool .. It just doesn't get any better then that... Yes life is good.....

Here's a link to a few more pix...

The Whisky Run

Till next time....

P.S. They do NOT give you enough whiskey to be tipsy in any way....

Yuppers OnO we did have a great time..

I'm really not a big fan huge group rides..
Note where I ride in the groups ...
The guys that we ride with a good deal are there as well...
It always helps to ride with the guys ya know...
And they know where I place my bike ...

We had our close friends from NM,KS,AL,VA,TN,SC,IL,TX.... On the ride...
It was good to see them...

I agree, LD; and postulate that the larger the group, the greater the opportunity for difficulty, and the less the opportunity for spontaneity. But as big groups go, it looks like a good one there.
I also find that comfort factor increases with time riding together with the same folks. In general, knowing people's habits helps predict their behaviour. And as for you, you know you'll always have a special place in whatever group you're with

In the mines, in the mines, where the sun never shines
I shivered where the cold winds blow
