Anyone interested in a North Mississippi Hot Wing ride today?

I have to work this evening, so we gotta get on the road in the next couple of hours. Not too far, just a couple of places I wanted to try/compare.

Well its official, ive had several dual sport bikes but i just became the proud owner of a adventure sport touring bike. A 2008 Suzuki Vstrom 650 in Holy Shit thats yellow. Dont care for the color but love the bike. 9100 miles with hand guards, crash bars, skid plate, center stand, & a givi topbox mounting plate but no box. I was the keeper of a friends 1000 strom a few years ago and i knew one day id own one. This is really gonna piss off a few of my MSSR riding buddies. Guess maybe now yall might let me hang out with ya.

Hey Snake! Been a while since we saw you! You are going to love that bike!

Keep an eye on the dinner thread and meet up with us there too sometime!

The level of Strom riders is becoming fearsome round these parts.

I returned Thursday from the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail and a visit with some friends that live in the area. It was a great trip. I have photo proof but still can't seem to load anything but giant images...
