Looking like I may make this one. If it turned into an overnighter, can do that too. Lee, I'll bring an extra shifter just in case ;)

I don't need no stinkin' knobbies. The Connie's been on miles of dirt and gravel. I just can't go as fast as when I'm on the DL.....

Well, it looks like Lee has work obligations, and is unable to orchestrate a DS ride. Bummer.

I don't know any interesting dirt or otherwise around Memphis for a day-ride. So, I'm at a loss. If we made it a paved run, I could try to talk Malibu_Jacs into coming along.

Though stretching it for a day ride, the area around Pickwick lake is full of great roads, both of dirt and pavement.

See my ride report here. I did one loop in a single day, then went back and did it properly on an overnight ride. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=329517

I found some good dirt.



I even found some water.



There were three others like this that didn't get pictures but were still fun.
