Sounds like a worth-while trip. Sorry I missed you. Was feeling less than my best (almost decided not to make the trip) but perked up a little while there. Not only lower flow of people, but less to see. I'd also have really appreciated a printed full fan guide and race program. Digital on the phone just didn't cut it, and I had to search quite a bit to find a friend's race info. Lower swap meet seemed thin, also. Did you check out the auction bikes? Nothing that made me wish that I'd brough a trailer. Didn't stay for the sale but feared they would sell for stupid money.

Pid, I completely understand. I am bummed I missed ya but more so that you were feeling ill during one of the best events in the country. It did seem like everything was a bit on the light side. I only made one loop through the lower and didn't feel a need to do a second. I did not check out the auction, as no version of my current reality would've netted me the ability to come home with one of the bikes. (I also purposefully didn't bring a trailer, and my truck has a cap on it, saving me the ability to haul big bikes).

I did demo ride a new Yamaha Tenere' T7, which may have been a mistake financially...

We'll catch up on the next one. I'm sure our paths are destined to cross eventually.

And remember, we are just 10 miles off the Rocky Top or Norris exits of I-75. Hope Lenny had a large time, too!

Ewwwh. Not many there that I would care to stay at. Rocky Top (rename your town Rocky Top and we'll build a big water/amusement park there - suckers!) does have a pretty good BBQ place - Coal Creek. Norris exit has better quality lodging by far.

...You're going to have to find one of these things for me so we can go out and terrorize the cornfields together!...
I just went through this thread again to gain some "education on all things Airhead" and came across the strangely prophetic comment from way back on Page 1 of this thread. Now that the Rockster is gone I've just gotta have something to do and another project. IF you and I check the thing out and it's good and IF I can get the guy to an agreeable price I am starting to excitedly visualize starting with this:

And going to a single seat along with a similar rack like yours:

Along w/ the S style fairing and panniers that come with it and I think I'd have a pretty good old steed to wheel around.
