Okay, the weather was decent (as in not raining) so since I was up I was game to do the ride for lunch. I didn't put on my heated jacket but the temps were a wonderfully warm 55 degrees and a bit up the road they dropped to a slightly chilly 52 degrees. I almost said something to Eric about the cold but I knew it would warm up. The skies were clear and the forecast was predicting 75 degrees or so.
I had all my vents zipped up and my buff around my neck. I was reasonably comfortable :-) We headed north on Highway 45 and we pretty much stayed on that highway for the majority of the ride. A big four lane highway, we encountered traffic in Tupelo and Corinth and then things mellowed out.
We made stop or two along the way but mostly just rode up to Tiptonville, TN with no issues (yay!). We pulled into Boyette's around 10:30 and the parking lot was just beginning to fill up.
Here is our host, Robert Rehkopf!
There were a plethora of snakes and some turtle shells showing the variety of life in the area as well. Sorry, no pics of the snakes, though some were impressive and others were shy.
We were lucky and our lovely weather stayed with us until we got home. About an hour later the heaven's unleashed and poured water! So glad we stayed dry :-)
It was a wonderful day ride of about 360 miles or so. Both bikes ran perfect. We had good weather, met great peeps, had decent food and a lovely walk-a-bout. Thank you Robert Rehkopf for the lovely RTE, great call :-)
Again, thank you for following along. Stay tuned for the next adventure! I'm sure one is coming up quickly :-)
