Street Rides

05/11: Some of us from DFWSBR had planned a trip up to Talamina, AR. However, the weather hasn't been cooperating, so many cancelled. A few of us decided to just do a trip out to Paris, TX instead. Weather was actually great, starting out about 70, and going up to the mid 80's. We went to good ols Ta Molli's for lunch.Trip was right at 300 miles. Pictures are here.
