Waking up in Maryville, Tennessee knowing this was about to be one of the best motorcycle days of my life had me ecstatic. I was about to ride the Tail of the Dragon. Knowing that people get seriously injured on the Tail of the Dragon also kept my mind focused on respecting the road and everyone else on it. In the parking lot I checked my tire pressure and gave my bike a good look over before hopping on TN-441.
Still on a high from my ride, the Tail of the Dragon. Arriving at Dale’s Wheels Through Time was like pulling into a rally itself. Bikes parked everywhere, people hanging out and having a good time. Wheels Through Time was founded by Matt’s father Dale Walksler out of his love for old iron. Besides having one of the largest, if not the largest, collection of rare and antique American made motorcycles dating all the way back to the early 1900s, the best part is that they all run and Matt loves to give impromptu shows firing them up and even doing burnouts.
