Do you have family near Silver Star Casino?
I'm grew up a few miles from there.


Yes sir, My grandparents were on the east side of town. HWY 16 about 3 miles out. I spent the summers there until I was about 17.  Whenever I'm near MS I still go through that town.  I also visit this place as often as possible, it was part of my childhood and I can't believe its still standing, much less open for business!

It's like you did a circle ride around my location.  I looked at the pictures prior to reading the captions and was like. "That looks like Elvis's home, I thought he was going to the mountains?"

I love putting the GPS on shortest distance when I am riding my Versys.  I find many dirt roads and little farm roads.  The TransAmericanTrail passes within 1/2 mile from my property.

Cool, 3 miles out 16 east they are right about where the turn to Bogue Chitto is.
I grew up on hwy 19 north about 8 miles out.
You know the connection with Williams Brothers to the Mannings. Olivia who is Archie Manning's wife is a Williams, her father was Cooper Williams.


For ya'll not from the south, that just how we do it.

I didn;t realize I was so close twowheeladdict, or o'd have met somewhere to shake your hand and run the C14 down some dirt roads (I push the "R1200GS" button on it quite often!).

Cigar thanks for the history lesson =)

Here is the loop I took around the US. In a few places I forgot to turn on Bubbler GPS tracker APP. Matter of fact I need to post up about that APP

Looks like you passed within 10 miles of me.

Did you stop in at Lovelace Cafe on 100 at the north terminus of the Natchez Trace?  Did you ride some of the Trace?

I am playing with this Bubbler GPS . How do I find you?
If you still have fuel in the tank, you are not lost yet
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle

Thats our local tampa forum, I'm there as a participate member, and i also moderate 2 zx14 forums. I wonder why that local forum came up on a Google search before this one ?
