2019 - June Ride

Tomorrow I shall be up early to start my June ride. I plan to attend my first BMW MOA Rally in Lebanon, Tennessee this coming weekend. I'll ride north east from Houston through Alexandria in Louisiana, to stay in Jackson, Mississippi for the first night. Continuing west to Birmingham and then north to the Jack Daniels distillery for a short visit before riding on to Lebanon.

After the MOA rally, I'll ride northwest across the heartland of the USA for the ST-Owners NatSTOC event in Spearfish, South Dakota.

I shall then return to Ouray, Colorado, to manage the ST-Owners RockSTOC event. I'll return home by first going south past the Four Corners and then down into Arizona to enjoy the Coronado Trail again before staying overnight in El Paso, Texas. My last day will be a long one from El Paso to Houston, Texas. Should have added 5,000 miles to KBiK when I return on July 1st. I'll be camping most nights with an occasional motel stay to clean up.

I'll post pictures along the way, and you can also follow my progress here.

If you find yerself anywhere near Greenville, SC next Monday morning, the 2019 Iron Butt Rally is schedued to depart at 1000 from the Greenville Marriot. Watching 100+ LDR equipped bikes pulling out in less than 5 minutes is a sight to behold.

There is NO need to tailgate me when I am doing 50 in a 35 zone... and those flashing lights on top of your car look ridiculous.

Hope you plan on staying in one of our beautiful suburbs. Staying in Jackson proper? Bring your heat and sleep with one eye open ...
