Smile CCR Memories

Fired up the grill tonight to do some chicken breasts for the family. While I was pulling out the BBQ sauce I saw the CCR Georgia Sunshine Internal Combustion Sauce. I thought what the heck and added that to a couple of the breasts that my oldest son and I had. I can remember my surprise when that bottle of hot sauce was added to our welcome pack, Thanks to Bruce Yates.

As I was eating, I thought back to last year's CCR. Even though Connie and I didn't ride that week we had a blast helping folks getting directions to the mountains and to a couple of our favorite places to eat.

I'm looking forward to making more memories this summer. Anybody else got any memories they want to share from last year or before?

On His Ride,
Steve

I think one of my best memories is the view of the Grand Tetons from Jackson Lake Lodge. Of course the best part of every CCR I have been to is renewing old acquaintances and making new ones.

Breckenridge was my very first CCR. I don't think any other CCR will ever match the excitement of "that first one". Not to say that Jackson Hole or Braselton were disappointments.

Looking forward to Tan-Tar-A, for sure. And yes, I still consume that hot sauce on a weekly basis.

Weekly? Try daily. For me, CCR is a magic event and it's the folk's that make it so. Truly a fambly, some sharper than a bag of wet mice, others that make you laugh so hard your face hurts and yet others that become dear, lifetime friends.

Or the memory of Raffy doing HID installs and David Shealey doing gas cap mods while Stick and I put a unigo together.....all around the pool in Sante Fe

Or maybe the parachutes coming down in Gatlinburg....inside the hotel.

Or the "saddles" in the restaurant where SE gang gathered in Jackson Hole.

Or the early morning fog heading into the north Georgia mountains at day break.

Re: CCR Memories

CCR Grand Tetons was memorable for be because as my GF and I were passing through Iowa my rear drive failed. I left it at a BMW dealer for repair, rented a car and drove to Grand Tetons. Not nearly as much fun.

Re: CCR Memories

CCR Gatlinburg, my first CCR: a bunch of us were smoking cigars and imbibing fermented beverages in the hot tub in Gatlinburg when someone ratted us out. Management came and rousted us. I remember the bottom of the driveway up to the hotel had a dogleg turn going uphill and a few LTs fell over trying to negotiate the uphill turn. That was my first cross-country ride on any motorcycle, riding with Brian the whole way. My GF flew into Nashville to meet us. I sure do miss Dave Sheeley whose license plate on his black '01 LT was BATBIK, mine was BATBYK.

Re: CCR Memories

My first CCR was in 2009. Hard to believe that was 10 years ago. Mike St. Just and I rode to Yellowstone the week before CCR. We also went to Devil's Tower while we in the neighborhood. I expected this trip to be the trip of a lifetime and it was. Such great memories from the past. Thank you Steve for creating this thread and to Bob for reviving it!
