Kenny Moats Memorial Remembrance Ride

 August 28th, 2017

More than 400 motorcyclists plus another few hundred ordinary four-wheeled vehicle operators turned out for a benefit ride at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson Sunday afternoon, providing evidence en masse that while Maryville Police Officer Kenny Moats may be gone, he hasn’t been forgotten.

After the ride, participants were invited to stick around for refreshments, the silent auction, and entertainment courtesy of a disc jockey pumping out rock ‘n’ roll hits from a stage set up in the middle of SMHD’s expansive lot.
