    Had a excellent time/ride at the LN2020. Campground was very nice. (strict rules :(). Excellent Host! (Mr. & Mrs. Loosenut) Did not attempt any slug burgers. Wound up riding the water crossing section 3 times that were on the first half of Sat. track.

    Tenbrook and I left there and rode couple days in the Hickman County area (Rimfest - Southern Discovery) that has very similar riding surface.:rayofAfter 1100 miles, the XR and I will need time away from each other!:rofl

    Myself and the Honda had quite a time this LooseNut. I rode with new folks Saturday and they were great. Sunday I rode alone I ended up between a couple groups, but chose to run alone because of my odd pace and tendency to just stop and take a picture or wring out my throttle hand. The weather was perfect the tracks were prime I think it was crashalot that let me borrow a little heat from the fire Friday when I rolled in. Thanks y'all I had a blast.

    Just some pics.....so much to check out/look at on these routes. Feel like i could have stopped every half mile for another shot. Gonna have to rig the camera back up on my gear for quick shots and get back down there again. 20201108_114321.jpg IMG_1722.jpg 20201107_061631.jpg 20201108_103548.jpg 20201107_091026.jpg 20201107_090624.jpg

    I love watching all your videos and checking out your GREAT pictures .

    I had a wonderful time. We couldn't have asked for better November weather. You all have ridden sections of the TN, AL and MS Trans America Trail now. I couldn't have found all of these awesome roads without Sam's help.

    Anybody else get passed by the guy on the red and black Triumph Triple? he passed me twice on Saturday. He was moving along pretty good both times!

    Not sure but the way he was moving it kinda looked like one of the Hayden clan - from your part of the country.

    Just had a couple picture of the ride, wish I would have had a video of the spirited run VFR pilot and I had for a short time, it is fun riding a slow bike fast.

    For Sunday my boy and I loaded up and went to Shiloh battle field for what I thought would be 30 min or so, but was there for 3 hours and plan to go back, what a moving place.

    He and I rode in the last few miles together Friday night. I pulled up next him at a stop light in that 1st town off I 65. I figured he was a LN. Of course it's dark and you can't see evening great, but I saw the Triumph on the side and remembered him instantly. He looked like he was having fun on that gravel when he passed you.

    Hey, I appreciate everyone letting me by! I'm always worried about passing people, not wanting to aggravate anyone. But, the Tiger is just too much fun! She wants to get out and stretch her legs! :thumb



    It was good to have someone to ride with for awhile Friday evening! Good seeing you again, under better circumstances this time :D

    I was breaking in a new helmet so didn’t have a GoPro mount for this ride. I won’t make that mistake again. You seemed to be moving at a good pace, I normally ride alone and just hook up with guys along the way, but I may need to hook up with you all on the next ride.

    Here's a little Time Warp video of some off track adventure on Friday afternoon. Thanks for joining us Loose Nut! What a blast on the logging roads on the Beta...
