    Where is everyone going to ride this week end?
    I am thinking of making it over to Clinton, jump on the Trace, and heading south. To Port Gibson and back up HWY 27.

    I just got back from my random sunset ride around the Rez and over to Renaissance and back. Was not too hot as long as I was moving, but there are some long traffic lights!

    Does anyone want to ride early in morning or mid-day? I am taking some friends out on my boat in late afternoon, but might can get away to ride before that. I would need to be back by probably 3 or 3:30...

    I propose we all try and find a night where we can all meet and grab dinner somewhere in or around Jackson so we can put faces to these posts and talk about arranging some rides. Any takers?

    Thanks for the info. I will take old Port Gibson Rd. Going to take off here soon. First I got to go by Trikes and Bikes and pick up a sprocket, before heading off.

    That sounds like a good idea, I had the same thought last night. I am glad to know that there are this many of us in the Jackson area.:freaky

    A Tuesday or Thursday would probably be best, but any night but Wed. is okay I guess. I do the Kickstand food run on Wednesdays so that's out for me. As for a place, I'm open on that, but probably someplace with an outside patio or back room where we could all talk without running out the other customers would be good don't cha' think.

    I did ride the Old Port Gibson Rd. to Port Gibson, to HWY 61. Then I went on across to Grand Gulf, got a few pics, and on around to The Grand Gulf Park. Didn't go in, figured would do that at a later date.
    Rode on into town and ate lunch at Sonic. Not many places to chose from, anywhere in Port Gobson. Then rode around and took in a bit of history, before heading back up the Trace. Stopped at all the significant markers, boring! This was deffinately a low traffic area, but very boring. There were endless possibilties off the raodway! It was tepmting, but as a law abiding citizen, I chose to stay on the roadway.
    Rode on into Raymond and got a pic of the Courthose, and on out to the Raymond airport, before heading home.
    Still undecided about today, but I am about to head out anyway.

    Next time go south of P.G. to Lorman. Just a few miles. Eat at the Old Country Store. Great buffet of good ole southern food. You might need a nap after wards. :D

    Thanks for the reminder.

    They serve fried chicken, the best in the south according to some people. It was featured in the Feasting on Asphalt show on the food network a while back. Rode down there a few months ago myself and did indeed feel like spending a few hours in a hammock after eating. Very, very good food with a nice atmosphere. And along those same lines, how about a Thursday night get-together someplace like a mexican restaurant where there's an outdoor patio and unlimited chips and dip. (Not to mention margaritas) Anyone up for that?

    If I can get rid of this ear infection so I can ride straight, I'll be there.

    Not sure about patio seating with 100 degree temps though.:kboom

    I could probably make it there this Thursday. Might be on the Ducati instead of the BMW though. Depends on what I've been riding already that day.
