In the realm of motorcycles, nothing quite matches the exhilaration of hitting the open road with fellow enthusiasts. And when that voyage carries you from the heart of Harley-Davidson country in Milwaukee to the breathtaking landscapes of the Carolinas, you're on the cusp of an unforgettable adventure. Join us as we recount the incredible journey of four House of Harley-Davidson dealership employees and their epic pilgrimage to the Annual Drag Specialties Dealer Ride in Greenville, South Carolina.
Chapter 1: The Departure Our odyssey began on a late afternoon in early November. Four passionate riders, myself included, departed from Milwaukee with our sights set on the Drag Specialties Dealer Ride. While our final destination was Greenville, SC, we embarked with the thrill of the unknown. We set out under a darkening sky, pausing only for the night in Frankfort, KY, with dreams of the adventure to come.
Chapter 2: A Warm Welcome in Greenville The early morning saw us back on the road, resolute to reach Greenville by 2:00 p.m. We arrived slightly ahead of schedule, granting us the opportunity to settle into the welcoming embrace of Embassy Suites by Hilton Greenville Golf Resort & Conference Center. However, our true excitement lay in the makeshift vendor alley where we were inundated with moto-swag, including two-man tents for future adventures.
