You sound like me, I had the same complaints when I went boating on the rez.

From what I read (unless I mis-remembered and was thinking about a different tanker/sail incident), the tanker was in a deeper part of the channel and couldn't alter course. The sail was supposed to have been made aware of that but either ignored it or old habits die hard and they assumed the powered ship would turn.

Yep and it gets worse the farther up river you go.

Always wanted a ski boat but after witnessing a fatal accident, I changed my mind.

Actully that is not true. The worst of it is between ratlif and the rez. Above ratlif once you pass the last big sand bar on the right the trafic dies down. When we tubed we would go up and stay above that sand bar and below coles bluff. Or how ever its spelled.very few people go up that far. The rivers not as wide up there. I would rarly go down toward the rez... to many people and to many of them are drunk.

There is a proper right-of-way on the water? I've never heard such nonsense!

RIP Mike Holloway, owner of Vicksburg Cycles. He was a good source of moto info, entertaining to visit with, and honest (sometimes brutally so) to deal with.

Help his wife and partner, Kay, out by dropping in next week and buying a new bike. Hope she will be able to keep the shop open, but I don't see how without Mike.

I mention this since he lived in the Florence area, so some of the Jackson area guys might want to know.

Does the store sell accessories?

Not much in stock - some helmets, jackets, and gloves. They order and install anything you want. I usually buy little things like oil filters (when I had my KLR and DRZ). I rarely ever had to leave my bike there to get a tire installed if I needed it quickly and didn't have time to do it myself. I bought some S100 there Saturday just to see if he had any new bikes in and to visit. Glad I got to talk to him before he passed on Monday - was really shocked since he seemed normal on Saturday.

Just had a co-worker poke his head in my office to tell me about a wreck on I-55 near Madison.

MADISON COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
A crash involving multiple motorcycles on Interstate 55 has all southbound lanes shut down Friday morning.
According to a spokesperson with the Mississippi Highway Patrol, three motorcycles crashed in the southbound lanes at 8:33 a.m. on I-55 near the Highway 463 Interchange in Madison County. All southbound lanes are closed to drivers as emergency crews work to clear the scene.
Motorists are being rerouted to Gluckstadt Road at exit 112, according to the Mississippi Department of Transportation. Officials expect the southbound lanes to be closed for up to three hours.

MHP was not able to confirm how many victims were involved or the extent of any injuries.

I hope his wife will find peace. I think the obit said they were married 30+ years.

Without turning this into a discussion about me, I lost my Dad very unexpectedly when he was 48; it took us all a long while to overcome that shock. I am praying for his family.
