If you read the NY Times and in particular, the travel section, then you may have come across a recent article by Jeremy Egner. The title of the story is Norman Reedus Rides with 2 Wheels. In case you don’t already know, Mr. Reedus stars in the AMC hit series, The Walking Dead. At first glance, you may wonder why this story is significant to an attorney in North Carolina; TV stars, 2-wheels, Zombies. Well, I’ll tell you.
AMC has a new show coming out and its focus is something near and dear to my heart. It’s called, Ride with Norman Reedus and if you haven’t guessed, it’s about riding motorcycles. In hindsight, it really seems like a no-brainer. When it comes to choosing a host for a TV show about riding, who better than a guy on a hit series who actually rides?

If you haven’t checked out the show yet, please do. It airs on AMC on Sundays at 10pm from June 12-July 17. It’s really well done and features great rides through Louisiana, Texas, California, Nevada, Florida and North Carolina with stops along the way exploring each areas biker culture. Mark your calendars for Episode 3 on Sunday, June 26 (10pm). Norman and his buddy Jason snake through the Smoky Mountains and party with our own NC locals.
There are many good reasons for AMC (and Mr. Reedus) to make the trip up here and visit for a while. Sure Georgia has great rides too, but North Carolina roads beckon you to swing a leg and spend the day. Rides like Shiner’s Run (I-40 to Hot Springs), Waterfall Byway (short but sweet), Mountain Meander (upper Route 28) and many more just waiting to be explored. But I think there’s something more to their motivation, a hidden agenda if you will. Who knows? I could be wrong but I bet that part of the reason they’re coming to the great state of North Carolina is to jump on the world famous Tail of the Dragon. At more than 5 thousand feet above sea level with 318 curves, mountains, peaks, and clear blue sky all crammed into just 11 miles…that’s my kind of ride.
