10 day TN trip, any ideas?

I'm planning a trip through TN in 2 weeks and hoped to get the locals scoop on the area. I would like to stop in Memphis and Nashville and plan to stop in Cookville later in the week to catch the Charlie Daniels band. I have (4) days to fill with local rides in the area. Any thoughts on the Jack Daniels tour or the dragons tail?

Hard to beat Charlie Daniels seen him may times. If you are in town maybe catch him at the Opry too on May 29.

The Old #7 tour is always fun, open everyday and free.
If you go to US 129 you may not want to leave especially if you can get there on a weekday. All good options.

Sadly the Charlie Daniels museum and shop closed over the winter. I liked the shop, it was downtown. Still downtown are all the honky tonks.

If you are an American Picker fan stop by their store. Close to downtown, right next to I 40. Mike has filled the store with motorcycle memorabilia and a few bikes. Last time I was there saw a Harley Knuckle and an Indian Roadmaster.

You can take your camera to the Opry like I did for this photo.

If you are going to the Opry the Opryland Hotel is next door and walking distance to the Grand Ole Opry. Opry Mills just reopened this spring, next door too.

Any of the large hotels in the immediate downtown are good too. For lower rates in a safe area just outside town look in the Brentwood/Franklin/Cool Springs area. I'm back tonight from Cool Springs HD. Paul Yaffe is there this week. I posted a couple of pics in this thread.

I just realized that the Charlie Daniels concert is part of the TN State HOG Rally that starts May 29. Lots of stuff going on all week in Cookville with the Rally. I forgot about it, I'd like to go but I'll be out of state that week.

Hit The Rendevous In Menphis. Best ribs that you will ever eat and go early. One block from Beal Street. Have a good Day set a side for a great time. Dont forget to hit Jack Daniels too.Jack is a bit out of the way if going from Memphis tio Nashville, but I would say well worth it. great trip ahead of you, Dragon is very cool place to hit .Great Places to see there!

The Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchberg is a cool tour and nice ride. Took a ride down there many years ago when stationed at Ft. Campbell.

I ride a Road Glide. Therefore I am!
