summer days hot, humid; on a motorcycle, you feel it, and it feels good.
From Clarksville, it's map of the earth to Ashland City, a Mayberry type of town. From Clarksville, it’s a two-lane twisting affair starting the drop into the Nashville basin. After Ashland City, it opens up to a 4 lane ride along the river with large meandering high-speed turns. It has great views of the rivers and hollers that feed into it.
Once in the city, Highway 12 ends with a right turn on US Highway 41A. After cresting the next hill, the Nashville skyline smacks you in the face with one of those views of the city. From here, it’s a short ride through the heat Island that is Nashville. In and out of the clouds make for a great ride.
Once here, we walk through the vegetable stands and eat lunch in the Air-Conditioned Food Court. This court has it all, BBQ, Jamaican, Indian, Cajun, we settle on Greek. You need to go there hungry and don’t expect to see McDonald's.
After lunch, we rode home; there seemed to be much less traffic, always a plus on a Motorcycle.
