No idea... though my memory is that it was a Triumph. In addition, I'm pretty sure I've seen it on Beale previously. Whatever it was, I did take a few glimpses, but didn't ever see the owner.

Looked a little closer and it appears to be an old two-smoker. Suzuki or Yamaha maybe.

I will be laid off for the next two weeks. Might be possible for me to make one of the Beale bike nights. Don't know, puts me home late.

Does this help?



As for being late... lotsa guys get there and head out before it gets dark. It's not just a late-night thing. Come by around six or seven, leave at eight or nine.

MC Warehouse? Is this something I mentioned? I don't remember any motorcycle warehouse place... I think there are a couple of scooter and squid stores on Stateline, but I've never been to any of them.

Yes it was I. Did you find the place? Despite the size of the warehouse you really have to be looking since it sits down in a hole.

I looked for that place when they first opened and never did find it. I'm not as keen on Southaven as the folks I work with who are all from the area. I have ordered from them since, but they didn't have the part in stock so I couldn't pick it up anyway.

They have quite a bit of stuff on the showroom floor and they
can go back in the warehouse and grab stuff for ya too.

While in southaven stop in at SKY(southaven kawasaki yamaha)
A bike shop ran by nice folks that actually ride/race and know
what they're talkin about. Kinda rare these days.

I'm game...Any suggestions for locations?

I'll throw out Mr. P's Wings on Dexter and G-town road? (in the strip behind the one with Corkey's in it.

Haven't been to that one but to the one on HackCross and they have $.49 wings on Tuesday. I ASSUME it goes for all the branches?

I'm not tied to it so if someone suggested something that sounds better to me...I'm game!
