Jay, chance of rain increased to 40-50% for the weekend.

I know I would be a day tripper at best.

I had a blast on the last ride, but if I were you, I might reconsider heading this way. The combination of 3-day weekend, (very busy time for LBL) questionable weather, (slick secondary roads) and lack of other riders (wimpy, like me) might keep you from going this weekend.

If you go, let me know if you have any trouble. I may not be able to get you back home, but I can at least get you out of the woods.

I'll be at Kenlake Campground from about 6pm Sat through Mon. My nephew is wanting to go to Turkey Bay Mon, but I'd rather just ride the numbered roads. Big ass trucks, beer, general stupidity can make turkey bay a hand full on the holidays.

Yeah, what a pisser!

Troy, I agree. bad timing. maybe we can try another week-end soon before it get too hot.

if anybody else as a week-end in mind.......

i guess i'll ride some miles around memphis this weekend.

Oh yeah, i had to replace my bridgestone trailwing front tire. decided to go with a metzler tourance exp. got it mounted yesterday. in terms of tread, it looks about the same as the trailwing, maybe 80/20 street to trail.

ok then, we'll ride soon.

good rides to all this week-end. SeaFlea.
