    Hey all, glad to see some familiar names subscribe - please pass the word that we had a great time last year and that we are going to do it again...........also, wanted to let everyone know that this years Loose Nut is going to be a COMPLETELY NEW ride. We are going to try to make this an Annual Event on the first weekend of November that does NOT ride the same roads/route. We are currently working on a completely NEW route, but it will be the same type of Ride your own Ride format. Routes will not be posted until later in the year, but we will be posting teaser pics and some of the highlights you can expect to see. So far this has to be one of my favorites.........you just can't get much more REDNECK than this wonderful Southern Indiana mailbox post :evil:evil:evil

    I probably shouldn't tell you FFs this, but my Mom lives in Gibson County (Owensville, IN). Could be a good excuse to visit and rack up brownie points while enjoying a nice DS ride...
