Then just do it! I'm leaving at 10:00 either way to get some miles in before it gets too hot to enjoy it.

I have used enough days off this year. Gotta save the rest for Xmas and Thanksgiving. So I will have to respectfully or disrespectfully decline today.

So, I stopped at Target after my ride to buy sno-cone syrup so I could make a sno-cone when I got home. I couldn't find the syrup so I went up to a female employee, who was wearing a tiara, and said, "Hey princess, where can I find the sno-cone syrup?". She was not amused. Had a nice little 100 mile ride though.

I'm planning to be in Rosedale on Sunday afternoon, possibly around 3 or 4pm. Riding down through Mississippi from Southaven.

Anyone want to meet for a late lunch at the White Front Cafe? I'm not sure she'll be open, so perhaps that should be established.

I can't make it over there today. Enjoy your ride.

Who knew this was here?


Lots of deserted roads and trails...
This ATV trail doesn't come up on google but the reserve does with no listing for ATV trails...
Was good fun anyway.



Also rode a 2-smoker for the first time :)

Don't have a pic but I got one in my street tires... At least it was the rear this time. I hate messing with tires.

Yep, seriously. I got a flat today too but I was able to fix it with some tire slime. I ordered a new rear tube and tire a few minutes ago. I discovered my flat while I was in the middle of a hard corner and got on the gas and the entire bike almost twisted out from underneath me.

I hear that.

So far on the Tenere:

Stock Tourance EXP rear- 6402 mi
Tourance EXP Rear- 1659 mi - nail in between tread blocks, plug wouldn't hold
Anakee Rear- 5062 mi - probably had 1500 left, but changed for a trip
Anakee rear - 3489 mi - nail through tread and sidewall.
