Old Tennessee State Prison Ride


Old Tennessee State Prison Ride
Saturday, October 29, 2016
10:00am – 2:00pm

Join us for the Boswell’s Annual Prison Ride to the Old Tennessee State Prison!

KSU @ 10am from Boswell’s H-D on Fesslers Lane.

A perfect complement to your Halloween weekend…a ride to the real SCARY-VILLE!
We’ll quietly (yea right!) slip past the guard shack onto the prison grounds, you can still feel the eyes on you, someone’s watching you from the guard towers. Once past the gate you will be escorted through the massive, secure walls into the courtyard. Photographed, finger printed and given your own ID number and a bunky…now you are in the historic Tennessee State Prison!

The first question new arrivals get at the prison is “Why are you here?” GREAT QUESTION! You are exclusively invited by the Metro Police Christmas Charities Program for lunch (at no charge…just like the inmates!) It’s their way of saying thanks for our annual support of the program. Boswell’s HOG Chapters use this event to kick off our charities drive leading up to the Toy Run and Road Blocks in November. And, you’ll see how the old prison cafeteria serves as a commissary and staging area for the delivery of Baskets on Christmas eve morning.

Come out for a few miles, good fun and lunch in the prison chow hall with fellow HOG members. Everyone who volunteers, or is thinking of volunteering during the Toy Parade and Road Blocks is welcome. So bring the entire family or bring a friend, just show up and be ready to ride from Fesslers Lane at 10:00 am Saturday, October 29th!

Welcome, to the real SCARY-VILLE!

Cookeville to Host 2017 Southern Backroads HOG Rally


Tennessee Tourism, H.O.G. and Cookeville CVB Announce 2017 Southern Backroads H.O.G. Rally

Monday, July 11, 2016 | 10:30am
Cookeville Selected as Host by Harley-Davidson Motor Company

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development along with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company and Cookeville Visitors’ Bureau announced today hosting privileges for the first “Southern Backroads Harley Owners Group Rally.” Dates for the motorcycle rally are July 11-15, 2017 with organized rides routing into Tennessee from adjacent states.

Cookeville is no stranger to H.O.G. member events, serving as host to three state level rallies in the past five years, a record for Tennessee. During the 2015 state rally, the hub city of the Upper Cumberland hosted ­­­nearly 2,700 attendees from 37 states and three foreign countries.

Motorcycling is a popular economic driver for Tennessee with popular riding routes throughout the state’s backroads. The average Harley-Davidson rider is estimated to spend more than three-hundred dollars per day when traveling, making motorcycle tourism a market Tennessee happily embraces.

“We are honored to host an event of this caliber. Not only is this a huge win for Cookeville, but for the state as we welcome H.O.G. members from around the globe to Tennessee today, one year from today and beyond,” Commissioner Kevin Triplett, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development said. “Our branding campaign for the state is The Soundtrack of America. Made in Tennessee. Part of that soundtrack is the rumble of a Harley-Davidson traveling our scenic, award-winning backroads.”

That soundtrack was heard loud and clear during the announcement as a group of Harley-Davidson’s rode up to the podium as the Commissioner was speaking. Representatives from the Harley-Davidson Motor Company and Cookeville Visitors’ Bureau stepped off their bikes to join Commissioner Triplett, apologizing and noting their tardiness was due to the irresistible “Southern backroads” of Tennessee.

“We are looking forward to bringing the ‘Southern Backroads H.O.G. Rally’ to Tennessee. Cookeville was an obvious choice for a rally in this region,” Todd Robinson, H.O.G. Regional Manager said. “They have an experienced local committee combined with a community that truly welcomes motorcycle riders.”

“We invite H.O.G. members from everywhere to join us as we ‘Carve the Cumberland,’” Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber President/CEO George Halford said on behalf of the visitors’ bureau. “Our community loves H.O.G. and is so appreciative to be selected as host. Tourism is the purest form of economic development, and motorcycle tourism makes it even more fun. Cookeville is ready to take H.O.G. rallies in this region to a new level.”

Past state H.O.G. rally events in Cookeville have featured five days of guided and self-guided ride options, street parties, riding competitions with law enforcement riders, stunt shows, vendors, food and nightly live music. Plans are already underway for an amazing menu of experiences and entertainment for the 2017 event, including plans for the return of an AMA Pro Hillclimb.

For more information on the “Southern Backroads H.O.G. Rally” contact Rally Coordinator Gary Bagwell at gbagwell@comcast.net or 615-948-0992.
