If I'm going to live vicariously through others rides, I'll need a little more exciting ride than that!

The boy and I rode over and watched Frank work. Then took the back roads home.

A group went down to the machinegun shoot yesterday. Maybe some pics will show up.

Yeah, machine gun....that sounds right. I haven't ridden much South of Brownstown, I'd like to hear about (and see!) some of those roads.

The machine gun shoot was a good time. I served a few years in the Army and got to fire some pretty cool weapons,but it never gets old seeing full autos in action.



I heard from Tparr,Roaddad,and Woodsrat, they all made it home but got wet in the process. Alex and I made it without hitting any rain,we would have got wet but wasn't up to this crossing. I tried to tell him I would ride across and he could walk but he wasn't going for that.

machine gun shhot

woodsrat invited roaddad, platterdr/alex and myself to join him in riding to louisville area for annual machine gun shoot. we went last year but it was rained out. this year... the weather was great, and the turnout for this event was huge!

we followed woodsrat all the way down.. some pavement..







abd some without pavement..






some stuff we had to re group and figure out how to get around..





which was big fun till some wild ass vine shit grabbed a hold of me in woods, couldn't get kick stand down... couldn't get that shit off right boot either!

took a while to get free, but we all made it thru..

once at shoot, we get front row parking... right in mud hole..



and this is first thing we see after parking..



some other cool military vehicles..



these things were all over, being used like atv's..






once inside we checked out all kinds of guns.























and this is the kinda wimmins ya meet at a machine gun shoot..



that pic was actually one i took last year, it's just that it was so packed there this year it would have been a pain to try to get pics of everything... there was always someone walkin into or in front of ya.

i got some video of shoot itself but you tube is givin me grief. i will get em up asap..

on way home we split up some damn where south of brownstown, jerry and rick went one way and tim and i went north... tryin to beat rain...




as you can see... i didn't make it. started in nashville.... a lil, then cut loose in morgantown, freakin monsoon in martinsville.

i didn't bother with rainsuit, was about 20 miles from house when it started and didn't wanna stop... just toughed it out. but at least my bike is fairly clean now..

oh well, lil rain never hurt anyone. had a great time guys, thanks for lettin me tag along.

Yes, that does look like a good time. I've heard about that event for years now but have never made it down there for it though. Thanks for posting the pics and sorta takin' the rest of us along too.

try this video again. it is of smaller range where you can shoot a machine gun... for a fee. this range is not very impressive once you have seen the big boys shoot all at once at main range. but you get the idea.

and this range is 50 cal or less.






i got a couple more i will try and get up asap.

I went down to Knob Creek Saturday afternoon and saw you guys leaving after the night shoot.

I hadn't been for two years and enjoyed the show.
