Save the Date y'all. We are planning on doing Sam's Corinth MS to Fayetteville TN loop April 26-27 leaving from Somerville. More details to follow so stay tuned. You can check out the Trans-America Trail site for ride details. Never done it but it should be fun.

This is gonna be a blast y'all! Justin and I will be leading so there is a good chance we will get lost!

Will be leaving Sville somewhere around noon and eating a late lunch in Corinth. :)

Because of the late start and the first leg being a little over 200 mi once we get to Corinth we will most likely hotel it. Working on those plans now.

You will be fine. It is a mix of pavemt, gravel rds, and hard pack. We have not ridden this before so bring your appetite for adventure!!

Man this looks like fun. I just got a DR350, ready to explore and meet some local riders. I was thinking about doing that DS ride up in Leipers Fork 4/27..............hmmm

BTW, I live in Tipton county. We do some supermoto rides out of Shelby forest too.

Here's a link to our local thread on SMJ. Some good stuff on the west end of Tipton. The Forest store just makes a good meeting for all. Usually 100-125 mile loop. http://www.supermotojunkie.com/showt...ers-click-here

A few pics from SMJ fall 2013 rally at the Gap. These goons come from all over.
This is overlooking Whiteside Mt. NC


Some random road in NC the locals took us on. Crosssed the Appalachian Trail somewhere.

Where we came from

May have to join this one

I may have tO make this run. The wife has been after me to sell the KLR and I need to make a real non highway run before I decide for sure.
Or should I bring the Connie? Maybe I could trailer the KLR to Corinth
behind the Connie!

Little bump. I can't believe no one is coming along. You guys are slacking.

I'd love to do it but the wife is running a marathon in Nashville that weekend so I'll be keeping the rug-rats from poking their eyes out whilst running with scissors....

I know of two of us as of now. Camping is always good but due to the rushed nature of this trip we were going to make it just a ride. We haven't nailed down a place to stay yet so that may be decided on the fly.
