These are photos taken at the {Kawasaki} Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (VROC) South Eastern Rally {SEVROC}. Vulcan is the trade name for Kawasaki Cruiser Motorcycles. While most members at one time owned a Vulcan many now ride a different model or different brand but the friendships gained via the internet make VROCers brand independent as far as the motorcycles that they now have.

The Applecover Inn located in Maggie Valley, NC has been the host for this annual event for the past few years. SEVROC is held from Thursday through Sunday during a week in mid May.

This Blog has photos from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday afternoon showing the Early Birds.

Since Sherm and I have caged it from the West Coast we don't have bikes to ride so we drive to do a bit of sight seeing in the Great Smokies. Our first stop is at the Kickstand Lodge about 45 miles west of Maggie Valley.
