    Another cool shot:)

    My Navy Daughter lives in Meridian,MS. and got to ride a 100 mile stretch of the Trace to Tupelo,MS with me on her F650ST. A very pretty ride up the Trace, thanks for the memories and your really fine ride pics. Randy

    THX:). I appreciate the kudo's;

    Yeah, I loved the no interrupt riding of the Trace, end to end. I stopped at nearly every op to read the history too. Jessica, a fellow MOA member and Great Daughter started riding her F650ST a few years ago, as she attended UofAZ, Tucson. Her Aerospace Engineer Degree has her flying a F18 for the Navy today, just finishing her school in MeridianNAS for such. I smile at her ability, with much respect to her. Earning her way for sure. Dad. Randy

    I rode the Natchez Trace several years ago from Jackson, MS to the end in TN. It was early spring and a cold front blew thru when we got to Jackson. Violent storms with tornadoes, followed by a 30 degree temp drop the next day. although the weather was not ideal, the trees and shrubs were beginning to bloom, and it was very scenic.

    My riding buds are not into history like me, so I didn't get to stop as often as I would have liked. I plan to ride it again from end to end. I will go solo the next time so I can stop wherever the notion strikes me.

    In places the road was very straight with few curves, and the low speed limit was sometimes difficult to obey.

    The park service is to be commended for the route chosen because for the most part there is almost no intrusion of civilization on the parkway.
