Motorcycling - It's not about what you ride or how fast you ride....is all about the ICE CREAM!!

Cool pictures Barry, looks like a good trip and looks like you had good weather. So you rode down there yourself? I thought others were joining you for the ride down?

I had 3 hours of rain gonging down, 3 hours more coming back.  My suit (from BILT) did a good job of keeping the water out.  Kim was supposed to ride down with me, but had some issues that kept him from the trip.  I did ride for a day with a guy from Windsor that I met on the Blue Ridge.  I was happy with the trip, and fel better about long solo journeys, though I prefer company.

Glad to see you had a good trip.  Did you make it to Arkansas or just focused on going to MS.
My goal in life is to be the kind of person my dogs think I am.

I stayed on the Mississippi side of the river, saw Ark but did not cross the river.  It was the Moses in me.
