    Nice.....looks like a good ride.

    Warning....I've been known to make goofy videos

    Me and a couple of my Memphis homers went to Cherokee this weekend for some asphalt/gravel/dirt action. I'm really looking forward to going back. Maybe us locals can get a trip (no, not THAT kind of trip) going up there sometime soon?

    Remember.....you're laughing with me....not AT ME :bubba

    Any size restrictions for the Apr25 or May 9 rides?

    I saw in the first batch of pics that all the bikes were like 650s or larger and all I have is a WR250X with knobbies on it.

    If either of the rides mentioned above are going to have people riding bikes like mine let me know and I'll make the 3+hr trek over from Memphis to join ya.

    Cool. I think I may come over Saturday and get a Hotel room so I don't have to start my day at 0430 just to ensure I'm there on time.

    Any recommendations for local accommodations?

    Alrighty guys, had to make a couple changes to the schedule. I still need some help with rides. There is only so much I can come up with without starting to repeat stuff, especially for the all pavement rides. Please let me know if you have anything in the works.

    Dirt Events had to be removed from the calendar as the property where the trails are is currently up for sale. I know it sucks, but nothing we can do about it.

    The start location for the gravel rides has changed. There is a little pull off on the side of the road 1/10th of a mile from the first dirt road.

    Here are the Details.

    Leipers Creek Road Pull Off

    If coming from Leipers Fork, the pull off is 2.2 miles from Bethel Store on the right. If coming from Highway 7, the pull off is .8 miles from the intersection of Hwy 7 and Leipers Creek Road on the left.

    35°47'41.44"N
    87° 9'7.55"W

    For those that want to trailer bikes in, please do, I have plenty of room at my house to park, and my wife will be around the house to watch the vehicles. The first dirt road is only 4 miles from my house. It is no inconvenience for me at all.

    thirty one twenty seven new highway seven santa fe tn three eight four eight two.

    If you are coming in on I-40 from memphis, you could easily find a hotel at exit 172, which is where you would exit to head towards the ride.

    You could also drive a little further, and get a hotel in Columbia TN. Richland Inn would probably be the closest hoter to the ride area.

    you could even pitch a tent at my house if you wanted.

    PM me if you want any more details.

    I just like alittle more than the 400 has to offer . It was a smooth bike . I could see where it would be a fun ride . I just like the 60 MPH power wheelies :eek1 After I almost went down on a pavement curve , then blew out 2 curves . I SLOWED DOWN !! The little 400 was rolling :huh , but he had better DS tires .

    I've been seeing so many "____ stolen" threads on the different forums I frequent that I may take you up on your offer of some yard space to store my bike overnight on Saturday.

    Lemme do some searching on the accomadations you mentioned and I'll PM ya for an address if you're willing to store my bike for a night.

    sounds good rat.

    The weather forecast isn't looking too good for this weekend. I will post again on Friday with a go/no-go. Hope it works out for us this week. My fingers are crossed that I will see you all on Sunday. :D

    If it's a 60 deg day, I say we ride! Looking at the pics from the last ride, it appears there are plenty of folks that are not afraid to get wet. (another :lol3 )
