If I forward your concern about your new-to-you bike to your spousal unit, your ass is toast.

Glad that Cathy, the cat, your bike, the dog, and you -- in that order -- were spared the direct wrath of that awesome storm. Many folks -- to say nothinig of our University -- as you note -- weren't so lucky. This video starts about a half mile from cueball's digs.

The morning of the tornado's me and my wife left Beaumont and went through New Augusta to Hattiesburg, we ate Chinese and were just riding around and the entire day the tornado sirens were going off but the weather was just rainy, when we were near USM hail started then disappeared, then we went to Wesley were my wife went in for a visit (reason we went in the first place before getting side tracked for food), me and my son were in the car under the parking at Wesley for about 20 minutes before sirens began again, then the sky got black and my wife text me asking me to come inside so I got my son and as we were walking from out under the parking garage, hail started but bigger this time and I looked back and saw the tornado close up and ran inside, the nurses moved everyone deeper in the hospital and had patients in the hallways, while we waited they said it crossed infront of the walking track and they watched it on the second floor and first floor. It's crazy how it seemed like a normal rainy day and we were just going to the doctor and grab some food and then that, on the way home we went through Petal and noticed how bad they got hit too, the street over from where I used to live in Petal doesn't exist anymore, and a couple friends of mine lost their homes and the trailer park didn't stand a chance from what I saw.

Bump.

I see a lot of riders out in the last week or so and I find it somewhat hard to believe that not a single one posts on this site. Where are you guys from the 6 coastal counties?

Yeah got a BMW MOA member out to where I though a prize was located and I was wrong. He waded through a lot of water too. Feel really bad about the whole thing.

Looking for this....

Thread bump.

Leaving the office at midnight, 65 degrees and a 7mph on-shore breeze on Hwy 90 and I'm riding home thinking it's almost mid-October; it's finally time to put away the mesh gear and break out the heavier stuff. I felt a bit chilly for the first time since April or so, brrr.

Thought I'd share.

By the way, if you don't already know, it's Cruisn' the Coast week. Hwy 90 is going to be packed during normal hours for normal people.
