    Wow, Trophy. I like the pics. Thats cool. I find the Old closed roads, leading to the old crossings, the most scenic. I like to stop and imagine a time past.
    Where did your ride start, and end, exactly. I want to take that ride.
    Maybe one of our future rides, could be themed, "ZiggZaggin' the Pearl,"
    just an idea.

    Started up in Edinburg and ended in Perlington. It was pretty much all paved. Took 12 hours or so. It was more of a trip for the Trophy (that no longer lives in my garage). :cry Not sure it would be something for the dual sport group, but it was a fun little diversion.

    Yep. It takes a little time and slows down the ride to get action shots, but we still got 300 miles of great riding in that day.

    DesotoRoto and I took in the sights of Camp Shelby this afternoon. It was great ride. Saw several military convoys and even wound up in Iraq looking for gas. Pics will be uploaded when I figure out why it keeps failing

    DesotoRoto and I at Hadji's Kwik Stop looking for gas. No luck!

    So I went out today for a ride to get the MS TOR's current tag @ Sciple's Water Mill in Kemper county. Half the trip was sadly all Hwy 45 from Mayhew to Shuqulak, but after that the roads were nice, so I decided to try my hand at doing a bit of photography while riding. It was a fun ride and the Mill is a pretty cool little destination. There is a store on site, but it wasn't open while I was there today. Here's a slideshow of the pics + a shot or few of the Mill and area.

    Youtube took my video down for copyright infringement:rofl

    Apparently even using Willie Nelson's song is enough to set off the watchdogs. I'd understand if I had claimed it was mine:freaky So.....Vid will be back later, with an "original" composition.

    Ok, here's the vid. I replaced Willie's song with an instrumental I've been working on. Just a rough recording, but a video slideshow is awfully boring without some accompaniment.

    Nice video and pics. I have to visit there soon. On my way home from work on the vstar I picked up a rock and now I am changing a rear tire. FUN! Fortunately I had one in the garage ready to go. I'll be riding tomorrow to work. Best part of the day.

    Your tag. Glad you got one. But, shouldn't it go on the Tag-O-Rama thread?
