The V-Twin Visionary Smoky Mountain Tour has become one of the fastest-growing motorcycle events in the past three years. If you have not yet attended or just looking for a reason to make your way over to Eastern Tennessee, then you need to put this four-day event on your list.
The VTV Smoky Mountain Tour is not a show that focuses primarily on standing around at a bike show. In fact, one of the reasons the location at the Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson in Maryville, TN was chosen, is due to the beautiful range of roads and riding right in their backyard. The name says it all, this is, in fact, a “Tour,” which is heavily focused on riding, all while seeing some of the top performance motorcycles and newly innovated parts and builds being put to the ultimate test.
Tennessee boasts some of the most beautiful riding in the country. Each year, the VTV Tour provides organized group rides if you are not familiar with the area. You can meet a ton of new people who share the same passion for motorcycles and experience breathtaking scenery on roads such as The Tail of the Dragon and Foothills Parkway, to name a few. The choice is yours, if you want to ride in an organized tour or go off exploring with your friends, there’s a wide array of road types to be chosen from; whether you want to rip hard in the curves or go for a leisurely sweeping ride, the tour offers something for everyone.
Once you’re done with a great ride, head back to the event for some real deal BBQ straight out of the smoker and cold beers from The Shed Juke Joint, all held right on sight at the dealership! Check out all the vendors with great apparel, top performance parts, and all the latest and greatest gear. Don’t forget to check out the bike shows that take place each day, talk to the builders and meet new folks from far and wide!
There are a variety of motorcycle shows held. Each day brings a new type of show with an array of bikes. The shows include “Ride In” shows, where anyone can enter their bike. This year, people rode from across the country and entered the exact bikes they rode in on! Other shows, such as the Invited Builders Show, present some of the industry’s top-notch builds, boasting some of the newest performance parts and designs! Some of this year’s builders were, Boosted Brad’s Death Metal Racing, Lefever’s Cycles, Blue Ribbon Cycles, Danny “Motorwitch” Wilson, and Denton Designs to name just a few.
If that’s not enough, watch or participate in head-to-head drag races and put your bike to the ultimate test! Watch the builders race the bikes they built down the track and compete on the dyno machine to see who takes home the cash prizes! Each night wraps up with some amazing live Southern rock bands, and the bar keeps you far from thirsty!
If you love riding, top-notch performance motorcycles, and killer music, this is a must to put on your calendar for next year, October 6-10th, 2022. There are also VIP packages available!
