It's that time again.  Let's hit the hills before winter sets in.  This will be a one day event for most of us.  Seems like everyone is extremely busy.  If there are those who want to make it a weekend, feel free.  I can give the information on local motels/resorts.  I'm working 60 hour weeks now, so I won't be keeping a rider's list.  Just show up if you plan on riding.

Turkey Bay is hilly and rocky. There are areas for just about anyone. There are easy areas that are good for beginners and kids, and there are areas for the not-so-faint-at-heart. The thing that makes Turkey Bay user friendly is that there is usually 2 or more lines to choose from. Almost every hill has multiple ways up...some more challenging than others, but they end up at the same point. The trails are very open. There is VERY little single track. At the pace we ride, most trails are 2nd to 4th gear trails. Nothing that I would call "tight" and not really anything wide open either (except for the main trail).


3 day passes to Turkey Bay are $15
Annual passes are $45 and run from March to March
Primitive Camping at TB is $8
There are tons of campgrounds throughout LBL.

We'll probably head out for the first loop around 9:00-10:00 am, depending on when everyone arrives.  And I'm sure we'll ride until it's too dark to see!

I agree, Michael. I was beat, and you had a ways to go yet, the last time we drove it back.

I stayed at a motel somethin-or-other on the east side of LBL. Can't remember it now (Corey?), but I will look it up here in a bit. Saves a bit of driving going back that way rather than up around the lakes.
My trailer worked out well for me at DW. I'm open I spose, I just wanna ride!

I'm really anxious to get the thumper in the woods. TB should be a great place for me and it to get more aquainted. :)

I'm in, y'all.

Jay, not sure which motel you stayed at.  Was it in Cadiz?

I don't go east of LBL very often.

motormichael, if your talking about me, YES I am a HSTA member and I belong to the MSSR - MidSouth Sport Riders in Memphis, TN. I dont hit many of the HSTA rides anymore since I sold my F2, but I am restoring a 81 Suzuki GS750 to ride. I do make it to the HSTA B.S. Rally every year.

OH YEAH the Mempho crew will be there in FULL FORCE. Me and Paddy Tim and Mark are all planning on coming up so far and I will invite Shawn, RahRah, Trip, Jay and anyone else who wants to come up.  We plan on coming up just for the day and will prolly be driving back that night.

J ... You gotta remember who we're talking about here as twisted as Paddy is EVERYONE seems a bit freaky.  Besides you got no room to talk here .. You gotta be the KING FREAK!

Corey .. you cooking lunch? LOL

For all you boys that have never ridden at Turkey Bay it is Fast and Fun. You really should plan on coming down. Its a GOOD RIDE and the weather should be nice and cool by then.

Are we looking at getting a $2000 cabin again?

I have a date that Friday night, so I may or may not be able to make it. It really depends on how easy she is.

Mike, you spend a lot of time with P, so he seems normal to you. I respectfully decline the crown, and will abdicate the throne to its rightful heir.

(I gotta stop watching Tolkein movies.)
