Road Trip day 1

Today was a great day. We left Nashville around 6:45 and headed up to Bowling Green to go to a swap meet/sale at the HD dealership. We got there at 8:45 or so, and there was no one there. The website said that it started at 8, but the signs there were that it started at 9. We decided that we would go and get some breakfast. This is where part of the comedy starts. We decide that we dont need to get fully geared up, so I didn’t put my gloves on. I think I sat them down on my tank as I was putting on my helmet. We got to Waffle House and get some food and then head back to the dealer. We look around the swap meet, and then go inside to see what stuff they had on sale. I found 2 T-shirts for 40 percent off, and Todd found some new glasses. We pay and then head out to get on the road. It is getting hot, so I strap my jacket onto the tour pack, and say crap, I left my gloves my pocket. I look around in all of my gear and the are not to be found. We head back to Waffle House and look there as well, and the are just gone. So I get to go back to the dealership and buy a new pair of gloves. We finally get on the road to Maker’s Mark around 11:30. We have a great ride and eventually get to the distillery. We make it just in time for the last tour of the day which was packed. We took some pictures and did the tour, and then got to the best part. The free tasting. They give you some of the liquid gold and some of the aged Maker’s to try. We are some of the first in line, and then we bought bottles of Maker’s in which we were able to dip them in wax ourselves. It was pretty cool. Mine looks kinda ghetto. I tried to dip the whole bottle in, but the was wasn’t deep enough. We didn’t have enough time to make it to Jim Beam. That will have to be another trip in the future.

We change our plan so that we can make it to the Louisville HD dealership to get a shirt etc. We are going along on the road that heads to the interstate, and we almost end up going the wrong direction. Todd missed the sign, and luckily I happened to see it and get us back on our way. We made it to the dealership in time where I got an awesome shirt that has a pin-up girl on the front. I need to take pictures of my shirts later on and add them to the facebook album I am making for the trip.

Tomorrow we sleep in, and then get on the road to head to Knob Creek. We will spend a little time there, and then head back to Nashville on the backroads. I think that we might be headed to the dealer in Bowling Green for Todd to return the glasses he got, as he doesn’t care for them that much, but it is on the way. I didn’t take all that many pictures today. I will post them all on facebook after tomorrow. Now, it is time for sleep, as it really does take it out of you riding all day. We put in right under 240 miles today.
