Good ride Supah

I ended up with 300 miles on the day. I was home by 3:30 after leaving y'all near Vaiden. 55 south was a blur at 100 with a miserable 36 mpg never caught vfrgreg since he jumped on 51.

It was great to end a ride with no flat, no loose spokes and no crash however that sand section we rode TWICE gave the big blue pig fits.

Let's line up and do it again soon

I got home way quicker than expected when we peeled off after Sonic.

It was like 14 miles to I-55, then 35 miles of interstate to the trace exit in Ridgeland where we split up. So it's not too far and I don't think to go that direction too often, except for MSHCT!

Thanks! I kept expecting something happen cause we kept talking about it! Glad we weren't having to do any repairs on the side of the road. It was a good day.

KW and I headed south to Natchez for the monthly BMW meeting. I swear on the way, I almost hit four birds. One was a hawk that came within 18" of me. I thought I was going to eat it for lunch.

We ended up camping at Clear Springs Campground down in the Homochitto National Forrest. It's a very nice campground and I plan to go back soon with the wife and daughter. There are a lot of gravel and dirt roads in the area. We only had a chance to ride a short section of unpaved road because the rain was moving in and we had a long ride back.

Took off on the Trophy right after lunch (was south of Raymond for a meeting) and rode all afternoon. OPGR to PG, out to the Nuke power plant, a few indian mounds, an old church or 4 and some nasty (from all the recent rain) dirt roads to get to some of these.

Went old school. No GPS (it was mounted but not turned on), no trying to get good pics, just simply riding and letting the road clear my mind.

Had a deer jump out on OPGR that got my attention. But nothing else too interesting. Had to get back to the paved since the Trophy is not a fan of sloppy mud, but there are plenty of great paved ones down that way.

Happy VD to me.

Is "good shrink" an oxymoron??

He spares no expense then. Here's a photo of the old Trophy at White Sands National Monument on its way home from Sturgis via Monarch Pass and Pikes Peak.




(of course Ricky was riding it at the time )

I pay some guy to ride it and take pics. I didn't pay him what he wanted the other day, so he didn't give me the pics.

Sorry Trophy. Your VD post just reminded me of all the fun rides I've had following and leading Ricky around on that Trophy that were typical of your ride. Since his life has changed with new responsibilities, we don't get out as often together - fond memories. We rode together a couple of weeks ago for the first time in a year and it was like old times. It's really hard to balance all your passions in life. We all ride when we can between other commitments.
