    Headed out of the greater Memphis area this Friday May 10. Overnight in Ringold, GA, (B) then Blairsville GA (C) the second night, heading home Sunday.
    No dirt and no camping this time around. Holiday Inn and asphalt.

    If anyone is interested in going, PM me.

    Yeah...Last time I was out that way I was penned up in a ladies restroom with a group of female bikers during a biblical downpour. They were from Michigan as I recall.

    (For you inquiring types, the mens room was locked, and I found out we all had one thing in common...each one of us had a wife) :lol3

    Are ya set? I stayed at the HIE in Blairsville a few weekends ago while zooming around that area. From the hotel, you can walk over the hill, through community center parking lot to the Armadillo Grill for some brew and grub.

    If ya can pick-up a short stint into SC, you'd have a six-state tour.

    Ha! Small world huh. No, I'm not set at all. I've had a major issue come up at work so I will be in Little Rock, Ar for the duration. I think I'm going to bring the wee on my next trip and explore Razorback country this summer.

    Well, hope you can get your bike out there. Extended travels without a bike to ride has me feeling like I'm wasting time. Strange, I guess. :twitch

    A week from this Saturday I'll be passing through a corner of Springdale, AR on my way out west. From there, I'll head south to pick up I-40 and turn up the wick getting to the Grand Canyon. :ricky

    This is the trip I had to cancel last year due to work. :puke1

    Ahh, yer killing me. This might be another summer of missed riding for me...due to work. Colorado was going to be my big one this year. Oh well.

    Take lots of pics so I can pretend I went along.

    Why thanks! I'm working on plan "B" now. Since I'm in Arkansas working, (and may be here all summer) the bike might as well be here too. Who knows, my "Razorback" thread may end up being better than this one...might be worse. :lol3

    I hope so. Come visit!

    You're right. It's gonna be fun!


    :lol3 I have four...the vintage stuff is staying in Memphis. I may buy another one to leave over here. Who knows. A KLR would be perfect. :wink:


    Me...in the fall. :lol3

    I like Arkansas...Most Prius drivers are not this honest.

    Finally headed back to Tennessee. :clap Spend a month working over here in Little Rock Arkansas. Leaving "The Rock" around noon tomorrow for a weekend moto camping trip up at Piney near Dover, TN.
    PM me if any of you want to make a run down 232 with me and my moto camping Possie. However, you must bring your own fried pie. We don't share. :lol3
