Smoky Mountain Rumble in Maryville

Most motorcyclists need only the thinnest of excuses to hop on the bike and head out on a three day cruise with nothing more than a general direction in mind. Others hunt destination rallies with great roads and beautiful scenery and if that's you, we suggest the Smoky Mountain Rumble. This rally's motto is "Ride, Party, Eat, Sleep, Repeat...and the sleeping part is optional." Located in Maryville Tennessee, the area has an abundance of great motorcycle roads,mouthwatering local cuisine and varied and accommodations for the budget as well as eclectic minded motorcycle tourist. Legendary motorcycle roads like the Cherahola Skyway, The Devils Triangle, The Foothills Parkway, Hwy 129, The Dragon and the Blue Ridge Parkway are all within an hour's ride of Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson, the site of the Smoky Mtn Rumble in Maryville Tennessee. Think about how awesome it would be to ride all five of the top motorcycle highways in the country in one weekend!

The party is being handled by Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson in Maryville. This dealership boasts an outdoor covered concert venue known as "The Shed." Each week during the season, The Shed is jumping with the best live Rock and Roll, Blues, and Outlaw Country Rock, national and local bands.

On Friday registered attendees can participate in a guided ride from the dealership to the Devil's Triangle. The ride leaves at 10am and returns no later than 4pm. Afterwards, there will be a VIP party with free food. Friday's band is the MOVERS AND SHAKERS. Saturday night Leon Russell is on stage. VIP attendees get in free both nights!

Saturday VIP attendees can participate in the poker chip run on with $100 cash prize for the winner and $25 for worst hand and a three pin run. The route hasn't been determined yet, but we're thinking it will take about 3 to 4 hours to complete both chip and pin runs.

The history minded motorcyclist can tour the home of native son Sam Houston, who became Congressman and (later) Gov of Texas. The adventurous will want to visit Tuckaleechee Caverns, home of the "Big Room."The largest underground publicly accessible cave in the Southeast.

THE DATES: July 25-27 2014
