Hey Ron,

I stay in Jackson, MS during the week (wife is law school at MC) and every other weekend I head back home to Muscle Shoals, AL which is in the northwest corner of Alabama right on the TN River. A bunch of us usually get together and head to Pickwick Damn and ride Savanah Highway back to Florence, AL. I don't know if you're familiar with the area but Pickwick is North Mississippi/South TN.

Right now I've got my bike down here in Jackson and I met up with some guys down here that ride around the Ross Barnett Reservoir. The riding here sucks!! Bumpy roads and hardly any curves. But thats why head back up to Alabama because Muscle Shoals is in the TN Valley and there are small Mountains all around us with so many curvey roads that I can't get enough. Send me an email at [email protected] maybe I can head your way and you can show me some better roads in north MS because the ones here in Central MS SUCK!!

later,
Brad

Hi Ron,

You are welcome to join us for a ride anytime.
The Mid-South Sport Riders (MSSR) ride at 10AM on Saturdays and 8AM on Sundays, every weekend, weather permitting. The Saturday ride is at a sport-touring pace and and is usually a lunch ride. The Sunday ride is usually at a sport pace. Both rides meet at the Captain D's (next to Shoney's) at Summer Ave./Sycamore View. This is near Bartlett.

Many of us also attend motorcycle rallies, do impromptu rides, Bike Week, Deal's Gap, track practice days, etc.

Hope you can join us sometime.

I was going to suggest that you check out MSSR, but John Nick beat me to it. They have a community on the web and are a BIG presence in the mid-south. Most that I've met have been a great bunch of folks. And they ride well, too.

Yes I was there. Some damn good racing too. We sat over at the new gravel/block grandstand area near turns 8,9,10. Did you get to see the braking move E-Boz tried on Nicky? It was amazing but he just coudln't make it stick. It was very similar to the one Roger Lee tried on Buckmaster. :eek:

Damn that is the same place I was sitting all weekend!And Eric rode the Kawasaki for all it was worth.They made Matt look slow this weekend :D

I was pretty pissed when Gobert and Chandler got knock out before the races but Nicky and Eric put on a show for us.I also can't forget about Yates and Picote that was an awsome battle.

I assume you saw the pass Zemke put on Buckmaster and Roger Lee(I think)? That was an awesome pass under those 2 with the brakes.

Roger Lee battled his ass off to run with Buckmaster in the later restart.

Damn we saw some great racing in that turn. Much better to watch than from pit road.
