Best you stay in your bubble for now. You didn't manage to hurt yourself today, did you?

Guy on a black and gray 07 KLR barely moving in Vicksburg - I think Ricky sold his KLR to a noob. I've never seen it with both wheels on the ground before.

Nice riding gear at least they will see who they run over

I wonder if he has done any 600 mile days on it yet, maybe some 60 miler's
That's a guy that I work with at St.D. Have to look at that ugly thing every day now. He traded a like knew KLR with 20K miles to Greenville Motorsports.

ADVenture bike Tuesday...San Antonio

I know that most of the posts, in this thread, are from the good folks in Mississippi. But, I didn't want to start a new thread, and saw a coupla' stray, prior posts from a coupla' non-Mississippians. So...

It appears that Tuesday the 20th was ADVenture Bike Day, in San Antonio. I drive, for my job, and cannot (in recent memory) recall seeing so many cool bikes...


Blue NX250 (approximately 1800 hours)- 281N @ Loop 1604 (at the stoplight). This was the coolest little bike that I have seen in a long time. It was in great shape, and had a "Stubb's Cycle" license plate frame. If I knew that Stubb's had a bike like that, I woulda' gone and bought it.

Black KTM 990 Adventure (approximately 1845 hours)- St. Mary's Street (in front of the Marriot Courtyard, on the Riverwalk). Your bike looked friggin' sick! It looked like Marc or Cyril stopped to have a beer on the Riverwalk. However, it also appeared that someone, riding a 1968 Vespa, left their helmet sitting on your bike (WTF?!?), while they went to buy some rolling papers. Please tell me that wasn't your lid.

Silver BMW G650 or F650 (approximately 1845 hours)- St. Mary's Street @ Commerce Street (just past the black 990). I saw you comin'-up, in the rearview mirror, and thought, for sure, that you were goin' to meet the guy on the KaTooM...but, no dice. You just rode right on by. I scoured your bike, for an ADV sticker (while you were stopped at the light), but found none.

Orange KTM 990 Adventure (approximately 1820 hours)- 281N just past Loop 410 (or, possibly, on that straight between Hildebrand and Loop 410). Haulin' ass!...GET SOME!!!


Anyhow, guys, thanks for taking my mind off work for a few...
