Hello everyone and welcome...welcome to Summer 2020! Although the first "official" day of summer isn't until June 20, for most of us the weather is getting much warmer and motorcycle riding is ramping up and getting into full swing. Also, things seem to be getting back to "normal" as most states are beginning to move forward and open up restaurants, businesses and attractions as we head into the summer months. This is great news for ALL of YOU as WE continue to make exciting plans for the Shine On East Tennessee Backroads VMC National Rally being held this year in Johnson City, Tennessee!


East Tennessee offers some of the best riding in the nation, if not the entire world. Many of our roads offer challenging twisties as well as sweeping curves, beautiful scenery, breathtaking views or just a leisurely outing through the mountains and the countryside. The surrounding areas are rich in history and there are plenty of places of interest to enjoy while you visit: from little country stores, scenic overlooks, state and national parks to exquisite eateries, landmarks, shopping and unique attractions. 


This year's rally will offer an abundance of picturesque, self-guided rides as well as several guided rides for your enjoyment. Ride lengths can vary from an hour or two to all day, depending on how far you want to travel. Regardless, you will experience some of the most enjoyable, fun and relaxing riding...ever. There will also be special events planned in the evenings for our attendees, including some wonderful dining, entertainment and, of course, visiting with old friends and making new ones while making everlasting memories. There will be bike games with some awesome prizes as well as vendors set up at the hotel offering a variety of services and products to further enhance your experience while enjoying the Shine On East Tennessee Backroads VMC National Rally.


As the pandemic settles down, we are anticipating a HUGE turnout as riders look for rallies to attend before the summer starts winding down. This year's national rally will be held August 27-30, 2020. The host hotel is the Holiday Inn located on West Springbrook Drive in Johnson City; nestled in the beautiful and picturesque mountains of East Tennessee. You can book your room by calling (423) 282-4611, but you better hurry if you want to stay where the party is. The hotel is filling up fast, and with the success of the recent Southeastern Victory Rally in Helen, GA (approx. 150 bikes), we expect even MORE Victory riders will be ready to hit the road for an enjoyable vacation...and what better destination than the Shine On East Tennessee Backroads VMC National Rally? Oh, and don't forget to register early while you still can and save on your registration fees for the rally, but you better act fast! The early registration deadline ends July 2, 2020.
