    I have about 1 week in December to take a solo ride starting from Tampa, Florida. I checked my vacation schedule and I have some time I have to use by end of the year so it's a perfect excuse to get away. I have a 98 Triumph Tiger that I want to take that is set up for touring. I've done the Key West trips and rides around Florida, but I'd like to do something different. Since it's going to be cold in the North, I'll have to stick to a southern route. I was thinking maybe heading out to the Big Easy. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I think you should ride to Biloxi and throw away some money at the casinos, ride to Jackson, MS and eat at the Waffle House on I-20 (eastside), ride to Oxford, AL and stay at the Econolodge on I-20, stop at the Circle K in Crestview, FL and get a Cherry Coke fountain drink, and go home via Pulaski, FL to take a picture of the bridge over the St Johns River.
