I thought I would start a thread about my ramblings around South Mississippi on my bikes "Lucille" is a 2017 Honda CRF250L. My son Casey also has one and we explore the backroads and gravel in SW Mississippi. And "Marie Laveau" is a 2002 Honda VTX 1800 that the wife and I use for day trips. The wife and I had a chance to ride today. The weather was blue skies and cool temps so we fired up "Marie Laveau" and headed for Laurel MS on hwy 84. We stopped for lunch at Pit Masters BBQ in Laurel and the ribs were excellent. the beans and greens were good also. After lunch we headed to Hellfighters Motorcycle Shop. If you ever get close to Laurel MS it is worth the trip. They sell used bikes and have over a hundred in stock. They also have accessories for you your wife and bike. They have also added a gun shop They have a Huge inventory of used Harley parts and a very knowledgeable man (Benji) to oversee the "Swap Shop" After getting the wife some riding gloves and a Tee Shirt for a friend we headed towards the house the long way. Stopped in Hot Coffee MS for a picture and unfortunately the store was closed We the proceeded to head west on a back road until we hit hyw 35 where we turned north to Mize MS. We then turned west on hwy 28 and followed it to Georgetown MS. We then headed south on hwy 27 toward Monticello MS but decided to detour through Sontag MS where we stopped for some gas and a cold drink at a small country store. (Sorry no pic) After filling up when headed for home on Nola road. It was a beautiful day and I am glad my wife talked me in to closing the shop today and spending it with her and Marie Laveau. Until the next ride keep the rubber side down.
