Has anyone been to Fannin Landing lately and if so, What do you think of the new plans for it? The wife and I rode out there this past Sunday and was suprised to see the sign saying the new building would be up and running by July!!!!!!!
We are really looking forward to it as we ride up there often on Sundays to hang out and chat with the other bikers there.

Fannin

I live just south of Jackson on I-55 in Byram. The wife and I usually like to ride the trace either north or south and we also like to ride to Vicksburg and go thru the military park. We like back roads and scenic rides. Neither of us are crazy about the interstate roads. We don't care where we ride as long as we ride.......so anywhere you want to go is fine by us. Just let us know. The more, the merrier.

trace

I have been up there a couple of times this year. Is there going to be a store there? Does anybody know when they are to open the trace around Jackson? I think it was to be around the 1st of May. Ivanhoe

Ratliff Ferry

Rode to Ratliff Ferry today to check it out. It's only about thirty minutes from my house.

The store is still under construction. They laid the foundation but that's about all. The sign at the entrance reads that the grand opening is to be on July 5th this year. If that's the case, they better get with-it. It also reads that they have a vendor with a concession stand set up only on weekends and they encourage everyone to visit. If that's the case, I think it would be a worthwhile trip. I'll check out the concession stand this Saturday or Sunday (whichever day is not raining) to see what they got.

yea my dad and i say everytime we go to ratliff that man if we had time to work it and run a store there it would be a huge money maker. but from what i gather and what everyone says that the fire dept. that has that area is giving everyone a hard time about a store saying it is a big liability. but that is all hearsay. so what about a ride im ready i live in brandon and always ride out to the rez. on sundays and heck even saturdays that im not at work. im going to brookhaven to take my bike in thurs. to check the valves and have a good looking over.
You guys lets meet somewhere and have some lunch and chat about the baddest bikes ever. VTX
Thanks
Chris

Sunday ride

Sounds like a plan to me :D I'll be there. Hopefully we'll have a good showing. The more the better. It should prove to be a nice ride from FJ to Ratliff ferry.

Sunday Ride

The Flying J is a big truck stop and uses Conoco fuel. If your going East on I-20, it's the next exit after US 49 under the overpass. I'm not sure of the exit name or number.

Yes, the Flying J is on Hwy 80 at the highway 49 exit. Get off of interstate 20, turn towards highway 80 and take a left at the light. FJ is on your left like a block down.
