    I bought it from a friend of mine here in Memphis. The dealership carrying Triumph let them go last year.

    Back in the Day... (10-12yrs ago) there used to be a TON of Singletrack in Chickasaw. Matter of Fact right up until they built the Golf Course you could still ride some of it withiout the Rangers Getting too worked up about it! Now a days I wouldn't even think of Unloading a Plated KTM back in there but I can tell you that there are trails that Go Into and OUT of Chickasaw SP that are still being ridden every couple of Months!!! Something that a few Locals to Whiteville all know about!!!

    Is Jacks Creek outside of Henderson still offering Yearly Permits for Hunting and Riding? We had 100's of miles of Singletrack cut into that area as well!

    It started off being a nice day to ride. Only 1 boat at Glenn Springs

    Clouds were rolling in so I skipped the Forest and made the river loop. Just enough rain to get the roads wet.
