Comments: Average riding roads but gorgeous beaches and mild weather. There are 12 casinos within about 10 miles of my house. You can pitch your tent in my back yard. The nearest BMW repair shop is Hattiesburg Cycles, an hour and a half north up US49. The second closest is Hebert's Cycle in Baton Rouge - Two hours west on I-10. However, I have a pickup truck set up for loading/hauling motorcycles and will gladly travel to pick up stranded riders in southern Mississippi. I live about a mile south of Exit 50 on I-10. Spare room, ever-filled coffee pot, tolerant spouse, lots of lies and travel stories to swap. I'm a medicore mechanic, but have a garage and basic tools. [2002-4 Secretary to BMW Riders of Mississippi]

Comments: After a numerous bikes and a couple of Goldwings ('85 and '95), I decided to get a Beemer. I've been thrilled. Having just recently purchased the LT, I don't have a lot of stories or adventures to share -- yet. The nearest dealers are Memphis and Hattiesburg. If I can help locally, I'll be glad to.

Comments: BMWMOA #515 with 30 year card. Sometimes thought of as an "authority" on touring in Mexico and Central America with 15 tours of Latin America since 1964, with most recent tour being in Dec of '95. Don't claim to be an authority on anything but many riders seem to think so with the frequent inquiries I get on Latin America touring! Riding American, British, & German machines since 1942 and @ 15 BMWs since l964.
