Sunday, March 18, 2012— “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of motorcycles.” (Alfred, Lord Harley-Davidson)

Despite an unusually mild winter (the fourth warmest on record, according to the U.S. National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration), I didn’t ride any more than I do in much colder years.

But with spring weather arriving nearly a month earlier than usual, the urge to get out and ride is blossoming along with everything else.

The only question is: where?

Sunday morning’s answer was a visit to the Memphis Pyramid Arena (to snap a few pictures of the statue of Ramesses II before it’s moved to the University of Memphis) followed by a trip down US 51 yo visit several stops on the Mississipi Blues Trail.

Pictures and details on each stop on my 125-mile ride are at Postings:
