Thanks Dan for the intro!

Rather than leave Memphis in a rush I thought I'd take it easy & leave Thursday morning.Looking forward to meeting a bunch of you. I did spend about six months working in Memphis a few years ago, so Memphican sounds good I'm easy, whatever/wherever.

My route from Memphis is toward Little Rock via some "Z to A" Grand Tour Towns, North of I-40.

See ya

I mentioned in the above post I'm heading toward LR. I plan to ride the TART North to the MO border (I'm by myself so I need to make good decisions if it gets difficult) . Cut across MO to Kansas with a stop in Pittsburg to visit That "little strip of asphalt known as chicken dinner road"! Chicken from Chicken Mary's or Chicken Annies!

Then I'm heading through Kansas, wiggling my way North through the Flinthills. when I get to NEB I'll probably head over to the Loess Hills. There is some super gravel, with great views along the Missouri River Valley that run between Council Bluffs, IA & Akron, IA. I live West of Sioux Falls, SD, so I should be able to find my way home from there

But, as you know...........plans can change

Okay, here it is...

Wednesday:
Dinner @ Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken on Front Street
Show up between 6 - 6:30pm

afterwards, some of us may go and hang out on Beale Street for bike night

Whoever gets there first, try and get a table for at least 8.

I'm not sure if we will be able to make it tonight. I've got more stuff to do than I have time to do all of it.

BTW, we're selling a DL in the flea market if anyone is interested.

Here.

Place is jammed. Line out the door. No way I'm going in and requesting a table for eight. I'm sure it'll be an hour wait.

I meant to be there, but I was on the phone negotiating another one of those jobs where I work from home in my underwear and have more time to fly around the country picking up motorbikes.

Hello again Memphis crew!!

Sorry to clog your dinner thread with a question but I'm moving to town in Sept & I'm interested in your opinion for a really nice apartment. Do you guys have a Chatter Thread?

In town now with the family searching & found a couple in Germantown.

Looking to spend between $1600 & $2000 monthly. 3 bed, Safe area with garage is priority.

Any standouts you recommend??
Would really appreciate any input via open chat or PM.

Cheers!
Dave

with that budget, you should be renting a house. Apartments with garages are extremely rare. I lived in one on Germantown Road and Winchester for a year when we moved here in 1999.

As far as where to live, it entirely depends on your needs, like if you have kids and where your job is. There are only a few places I would live in the Memphis area and Germantown isn't one of them - as a rule, not my type of people and I really don't need an ordinance that says I can't occasionally work on my vehicle in my driveway. I coach baseball out there but live in Midtown.

PM me if you want to talk.

This thread is where most of the chatter is found. DC is right. Give us a few more details--since you're renting and not concerned about resale, other things may carry more weight.

Where are you working? Kids in elementary, middle grade, etc? DC is also correct you could be renting a house in that price range.

Sent you my cell# if you want to chat more.
