    Anyone interested in a day, or two, of riding in LbL on Mem. Day weekend?

    There is still a few campsites avail in energy lake, hillman ferry, and piney.

    is anyone interested?

    i can get there fri, 5-22, or sat, 5-23. we could ride either on sat, sun, or mon for that matter.

    what do you think?

    good rides, SeaFlea.

    You know I'll be there if I can. I'll have to see what is going on closer to "game time".

    I'm still planning on getting out there, but I *may* have to set tobacco that weekend. If the weather cooperates, we'll set on Thursday and maybe Friday. But if it doesn't dry out until Saturday...

    Yeah, the weather will be a big factor for all concerned.

    We'll wait till the week of and see how its shaping up. By the way, thx for spotting those cracks in my frt tire. dropped it off at the dealer last sat, one of their mech's put some light on it and found several cracks right away. I'll find out what Bridgestone's warranty is like very soon now.

    Only 3800 mi on them, way too early to be anything but a defect.

    Good rides to all.

    I'm watching the thread, the weather, and my changing schedule.

    Let me know the details at "go time". For me, it would be a day trip at best.

    It's good to see you posting Slopez. I hope you've taken lots of pictures.

    I'll be recuperating Saturday and Sunday, but Monday ride sounds doable. Jay are you sure you can't stick around?

    Jay, did you have phone service @ Energy Lake? Saturday may be my best shot at getting there. I would let you know if it works, I would not want you waiting on me.

    yeah, i've got att. it worked ok at energy lake.

    not sure if its a good idea to get out there by myself. its good to have someone in case it goes wrg.

    i'll check this tomorrow am.

    troy650, if it looks like a bust, i'll pass this weekend.

    i hate to waste a weekend camp, but smart makes right.

    good rides, SeaFlea

    Jay, chance of rain increased to 40-50% for the weekend.

    I know I would be a day tripper at best.

    I had a blast on the last ride, but if I were you, I might reconsider heading this way. The combination of 3-day weekend, (very busy time for LBL) questionable weather, (slick secondary roads) and lack of other riders (wimpy, like me) might keep you from going this weekend.

    If you go, let me know if you have any trouble. I may not be able to get you back home, but I can at least get you out of the woods.

    I'll be at Kenlake Campground from about 6pm Sat through Mon. My nephew is wanting to go to Turkey Bay Mon, but I'd rather just ride the numbered roads. Big ass trucks, beer, general stupidity can make turkey bay a hand full on the holidays. :eek1

    Troy, I agree. bad timing. maybe we can try another week-end soon before it get too hot.

    if anybody else as a week-end in mind.......

    i guess i'll ride some miles around memphis this weekend.

    Oh yeah, i had to replace my bridgestone trailwing front tire. decided to go with a metzler tourance exp. got it mounted yesterday. in terms of tread, it looks about the same as the trailwing, maybe 80/20 street to trail.

    ok then, we'll ride soon.

    good rides to all this week-end. SeaFlea.
