    OK folks, we've been piggybacking on the Jackson MS Riders thread too long. Time has come for us N. MS guys (and gals:sweeti) to have our own thread!

    Hopefully this will bring some folks out of the woodwork :dunno.

    So, who's riding when and where?

    I tried to start a N. MS. rider thread a long while back, but it lasted maybe a week haha.

    Maybe we can keep this one around a while!

    It was VERY brief-lived. I'm all about keeping this one near the 1st page!

    I'm pretty sure we can BS enough to keep this one on the first page.

    In all seriousness though, since I'm not riding in N. MS this weekend, how's the NX2fiddy coming?

    We got the parts in Monday, but haven't been able to even touch it. On top of the other goings on of the week, I have to make up my midterms tomorrow, so that kind of rules out a chance to do anything. Cutting it close!

    Suh-weet Wolfy! Y'all should truck that thing over here and let her ride it down by the river.

    More parts are inbound here. Got the last of the brake parts for the Vstrom and rear sprocket for the DRZ. The rest of the suspension parts for the 'strom should be here Thursday.

    Tire change and new sprocket going on shortly. Maybe by the weekend I'll have a functional street bike again and the DRZ can go back to doing what it's meant to do in the dirt.

    started about 10 am, rode gravel most of the day go on some two track at Dexters Pond,,drifted south of the pond and found some trails listed designed by LAKE HILL motors at Starkville...pretty much fun not very difficult...I plan to go over to Lake Hill Motors and find out the scoop on riding there. I am sure they charge a fee,, but no one was there when I went through....rode about 80 miles got home about 5... I have no pics but am working on learning o how to move pics from phone to capture on this site,,,, hopefully I can master that operation and post some pics of my adventures.....always needing some companyPM me if you wanna go...

    Yep. When (not if:deal) I go back to Trace State Park, I'm putting the 13 tooth front sprocket back on. It has a 14 tooth now. It should really wake it up!

    OK, DRZ back in one piece.

    Who wants to ride Saturday? I'm up for most anything. Unless somebody comes up with something better, I'm heading either east into Alabama to work on a route I've ridden before or making a big loop to the southeast and back through the Noxubee Refuge and the Tombigbee NF.

    Both routes will have some highway riding, but as little as possible. Mostly gravel roads and badly paved roads. I'd like to keep it to the morning, as I've got a Vstrom to reassemble so the wife and I can ride Sunday :deal.
