    Looks like a bad way to end a ride!

    Event this Sunday in Biloxi:

    Unfortunately, I could only find a link via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/359550024500012/

    I'll be there but not sure for how long, I guess it depends if there's a place to sit or eat or smoke cigars.

    I'll be working nights all weekend. Might try to get up early and check it out before I go to work.

    On another note. Saw a guy on GS 800 yesterday in Ocean Springs wearing an AMA national Trials T-shirt. Was that any of ya'll?

    Hey fellow riders from the lower land mass. I’ve been a member on the forum a few years but don’t post much. Nothing much to say I guess but love to read the forums.

    I live in Gulfport and currently ride a wee strom. I usually head north and ride Desoto and points beyond. I’m a 63 year old fart that don’t mind riding slow, fast, or halfast. Pavement or dirt, it’s all fun.

    I’ve got a semi flexible schedule (self employed) so a weekday morning is sometimes more doable than a weekend. Would love to meet up with some of you guys sometime and take a ride. I’ve been riding for many years so I’m not a noob. Hollar at me sometime. The name is Jeff

    I'm going on a ride tomorrow, 10th, for some Thai food over on Hwy 90, just over the state line in Alabama: https://goo.gl/maps/Dx88JihxuDD2

    After that I'm just going to wander in the northerly direction via secondary roads, no dirt.

    If you're available, let me know here. I'm usually up until 3am or so.

    Good Thai food. After I ventured north on the back roads, after about 250 miles made to my local cigar shop for an after ride smoke.

    Pic from my ride, notice the sign is shot up by a shotgun, 'murica.

    Very nice photo-documentation! My favorite has to be that Norton Commando 750. I was droning on the interstate to Houston when all that was going on.

    The annual Last Ride of the Year will be on the 30th, it's a Saturday, over in Stockton, AL. Same place as usual, The Stagecoach Cafe. I could not find a regular web link so here's the one from FB:

    I'll be going and will probably be the only one on a Blackbird again, hit me up and say hello.

    Hope that you do not mind me interloping on this thread, but I'm looking for someone to trail ride with in the Southwest to South Central part of Mississippi.
    I'm from the Baton Rouge area but do a good bit of my riding from there to Natchez, Brookhaven, or McComb. I'll venture much further for a good ride. Just rode around Fort Adams/Pecan Grove today and posted about it on my initial post for the Louisiana region.

    The Annual Last Ride of the Year was yesterday. Good turn out of riders and a lot of different brands, mostly HD and and IBA setup rides. We had a late start and left around 8:30am and it was in the 40's, slabbed it over to Stockton, AL and it warmed up to the mid 50's. Early lunch, fantastic southern food and then to browse the parking lot. I took a couple of pics and found a couple from the net from a guy flying a drone.

    I'm thinking of heading over to Bethel trails tomorrow , and was wondering if anybody might be interested in meeting up.

    Sounds like fun but I'll have to pass - tried some unpaved stuff yesterday and a Yamaha XTZ750 on TKC70 tires does not like wet mud at all. (Also a bit too far south to sneak off to. :-)
