OK folks, we've been piggybacking on the Jackson MS Riders thread too long. Time has come for us N. MS guys (and gals) to have our own thread!

Hopefully this will bring some folks out of the woodwork .

So, who's riding when and where?

I tried to start a N. MS. rider thread a long while back, but it lasted maybe a week haha.

Maybe we can keep this one around a while!

Did you? I don't recall... Well dammit, it's up to the thread instigator to keep it going!

It was VERY brief-lived. I'm all about keeping this one near the 1st page!

I'm pretty sure we can BS enough to keep this one on the first page.

In all seriousness though, since I'm not riding in N. MS this weekend, how's the NX2fiddy coming?

We got the parts in Monday, but haven't been able to even touch it. On top of the other goings on of the week, I have to make up my midterms tomorrow, so that kind of rules out a chance to do anything. Cutting it close!

Suh-weet Wolfy! Y'all should truck that thing over here and let her ride it down by the river.

More parts are inbound here. Got the last of the brake parts for the Vstrom and rear sprocket for the DRZ. The rest of the suspension parts for the 'strom should be here Thursday.

Tire change and new sprocket going on shortly. Maybe by the weekend I'll have a functional street bike again and the DRZ can go back to doing what it's meant to do in the dirt.

Yep. When (not if) I go back to Trace State Park, I'm putting the 13 tooth front sprocket back on. It has a 14 tooth now. It should really wake it up!
