    Are there any Jackson MS riders here?
    I ride a 08' 230 L.
    If so I would like to hear from you. I am looking for ride freinds.

    I live down on the Coast. Look in the Gulf States Regional Forum. There are quite a few dual sport riders up your way. A moderator will probably move this thread there so that you get maximum exposure. Welcome to the forum.

    I will look, I do hope a moderator will move it. Just hope they tell me where to look afterwards.

    Look under "Riding" "Regional" then "Tajas and Gulf States" Welcome aboard my fellow Mississippian, your just a bit to far north for me.

    I have looked and searched all areas. This has got to be the hardest site to find MS riders. Do you know of any more links?
    Thanks for you info.

    Fellow Central MS rider here... Well, sort of. I do live in central MS but am between bikes right now, but hope to have that worked out in the next week or two. (no street legal bike currently) Once I pick up my new KLR that I have my eye on, I'll be looking for some riding buddies.

    I'm originally from Vicksburg, but live down in Picayune now. I make it up that way once a month or so.

    Starkville here (soon to be Columbus). Originally from Jackson. I'm down in Jackson all the time since most of my family lives there. Most of the time I'm in the car/truck since I have dogs and wife in tow, but I could easily be persuaded to come by bike on occasion...

    I ride a Honda 230L. What do you ride?
    When you were in Jackson, where did you ride? I have ridden the back roads of Hinds county. But that has become boring. I klike to mix some offroad trail riding in too. I also have 2 80cc bikes for my son, who is 11. I like to include him when I can. But as of late he hasn't wanted to ride. But I do!
    Give me a holler, and lets see what we can do.

    I see you live there. Do you have some favorite rides, there?
    That would be cool, for the weekend?
    I have been wanting to get down to Bethel ATV trails, outside Wiggins. But the weather has not been cooperating. Wanted to go to Little Tiger this past week end, but couldn't. These 2 I haven't ridden, but want to. My son is 11, on these 2 trails, I would like to take him. Maybe after I have ridden them and become a little familiar with them.
    What do you ride?

    I live in Jackson and ride a DR 350 and Kawasaki Versys. Lately I have done more street riding on the Versys but I did ride the DR on the Mississippi Hill country loop of the TAT recently. Several of my friends ride KLR 650s. Maybe we can hook up and ride one day soon. My work schedule sometimes gets in the way of a good time, but the work does support the good times. :clap

    I'm in Jackson, I ride a KLR 650; mostly street. I ride with carabnsol a lot, we generally have some good trips; when work doesn't get in the way!

    Mine is red, and my brother's is black but it wasn't him you saw. He lives in Clinton and doesn't have panniers. I don't know that I've seen another '09 on the road around here but I'm sure there are several.

    I hope to have a black 09 very shortly. GG sold the one I was looking at a last month. They said they would find me one when I was ready. I may have to run buy there this afternoon and see what I can work out.
