Count me in. That works out pretty well for me since I need to pick up my parts tomorrow and get them installed and tuned anyway

Hey Guys, got some really good news about the gravel route. I have spent quite a bit of time studying maps, Google Earth and scouting. In addition, I made it over to Kinko’s today and printed my TDOT map of Hickman County. It is three feet tall and four feet wide.

In half an hour of looking over my new map, I figured the following out. I believe it to be about 95% accurate.

There are 75 water crossings in all of Hickman County. Our route will take us through 40 of them. It is an out and back run, about 35ish miles in one direction. All said, it is good for about 70 miles and 80 crossings total. It can also be shortened on the fly as needed. Cdq3 is working on a GPS map of it, so we will know just how long it is, and can share it.

How does that sound?

I tried to miss him by swerving left and he got the passenger side instead of mine.

Don't try this on a bike!

Glad you're OK!

I've always wondered if there were any negative things that would happen for "flipping a bird". Now I know.

wow. and yikes!

I knew a bird strike wouldn't be pleasant, but wow. Something tells me a 2mm-thick polycarbonate helmet visor wouldn't take big bird so well.

He shook the truck hard. It would take you right off a bike

If hit in head or chest. All's well just $179 installed.

See yall soon.

Watch out for Turkeys and Turkey Buzzards

WOW - one hell of a weekend down this way. Lost power for 24 hours and the internet is still down... Glad to not hear any real bad news from anyone else here on the forums though.

The gravel loop was right in the line of storms. Based on what things look like near my house, I suspect that the loop is destroyed. I won't have time to go scouting before the scheduled ride this Saturday.

Should we just call the ride for the 8th off now, or would some of you guys be interested in scouting with me on Saturday. No guarantee that any of the roads will be passible however.

What do you guys think?
