The day started out a bit cool with a chance for rain, but as the sun broke through the clouds, it warmed up into a great riding day.

I arrived before Rocket Harley was even open, and met a few riders that did the same. There was a slow trickle of riders coming in, and soon the parking lot was almost as full as yesterday's Semper Fi ride.

The question I kept getting asked was, "Where's Daughtry Gap? I hadn't heard of it either and only saw some comments on the Internet to even have a clue where it was. When I had a chance to ask someone about it, I discovered that they were changing the ride location since this was a big group and there's a lot of curves on Daughtry Gap. It must be like a mild version of Deal's Gap.

It always amazes me how many riders also are into cars. I was tapped on my shoulder while talking to a new friend by Jarrell fully dressed in leathers head to toe. Now, I know Jarrell from car shows and whose entire family owns Camaros--I would've never imagined him on a bike. But that just shows how we all love wheels and motors.

It was his first group ride, and he was meeting a friend to ride with in the group. Group riding takes a bit more skill than riding solo as I read on the Trail of Tears website, and the ride leaders did a great job of addressing this.

The pre-ride meeting was big, and ended in a moment of prayer accompanied with a bugle. I attempted to capture this on video, but the sound of traffic on 565 made for a lot of background noise. The somber moment reminded us all why we were here.

As I was taking pictures, I noticed someone from Rocket Harley doing the same. It was Audrey, and she was using a Canon Rebel t2i--the same camera I use for filming TopEnd.tv. She didn't know too much about the camera, so I showed her a couple of settings that would help her get the shot. I only wish I could have equipment this capable--she got a shot of every rider as they left, while I had to get one of every other rider. But what I got, I'm really happy with.

On my way home after the ride, I found an antique tractor with an American flag parked in someone's yard. I think it's a great symbol of the patriotism in our area--wheels, motors, America--God bless us!
