I recently discovered this batch of photos I had taken a few days after the tornado, here in Clarksville in 1999, had totally destroyed the old Appleton's
H-D Dealership which was located on the river side of Kraft street where the Salvation Army building is today. This also happened to be the same year that we held the TN. State H.O.G. Rally here in Clarksville. The Tornado happened in January while I was in Orlando, FL. going through a week long State Rally Coordinator's school that H.O.G. puts on each year for all State Rally Coordinators. Our rally was held that following August, by which time, Appleton's was fully operational in their temporary location not far from where they are today. But when I first got the news about the destruction of the dealership, I wasn't sure how, or if, that was going to have any effect on the upcoming rally. Fortunately, it did not.

Apparently, through all the destruction, someone at Appleton's still had a sense of humor!
