Mississippi Rough Road Ride

Houston, MS

March 25-27, 2015

    Fun, Fellowship, and Dirt Road Riding
    in Uncle Jimmy Land

Join us for 3 days of riding on the back roads of Northern Mississippi. Riders will divide into 2 groups, Rock and Rollers and Easy Riders, for guided rides through the national forest, farm country, and small towns that make up this area of Mississippi. Both groups will travel the same route - the Rock and Rollers may ride a little faster. The roads are suitable for big adventure bikes.

Uncle Jimmy Stevens is the Ride Host. Jimmy hopes that everyone will stay at Ron's cabin on the lake. There is tons of room for tent camping, some couches in the cabin, and bunk house with 4 beds, and a truck camper suitable for one rider. Couples are welcome to stay on Ron's house in nearby Houlka (he has 2 bedrooms). There is also some space for RV campers around the cabin. Be advised that the road into the cabin is dirt, and steep, and may not be suitable for big campers. Camping with full hook ups is available at nearby Davis Lake National Forest Campground. The nearest motels are in Houston, MS. Contact Jimmy about available bed space at the cabin.

Breakfast and supper will be served each day at the cabin on the lake including a meal for supper on March 24. Lunch will be Pot Luck, Road Kill Stew, Vinenes, Sardines, etc.on the road. After supper the day's activity will be discussed around the camp fire, Ron has the best camp fires.

    Rider Safety and Responsibilities
    In addition to requiring the use of a DOT approved helmet on all MTF rides, the MTF RRR Committee strongly encourages the use of Motorcycle specific protective clothing and footwear while participating in any off road event. ATGATT reduces the severity of injuries in an accident and we want every participant in our events to be as safe as possible.

    The MTF RRR Committee strongly encourages each participant in our events to self assess their riding style, interests, need for breaks and riding skill level and to keep that assessment in mind when choosing a riding partner or small group (2-4 riders) to ride with at our events. Sharing the road with someone of similar interests and riding style not only makes the ride more enjoyable for you, but safer for everyone.

    The third part of safety when riding in remote areas is knowing where you are and how to get out. For this reason each rider should have a GPS device with the routes loaded and be familiar with it's operation and use. Being lost in a maze of endless gravel and dirt roads as darkness descends is a safety issue both for yourself and those who will have to search for you.


    Lodging: Riders are responsible for making their own lodging arrangements.
