I'd like to see how many people would be interested in a Memorial Day Weekend ride on the MS Gulf Coast. Gulfport plays host to the Harley Blowout, so it is a huge motorcycle weekend. Not just for Harleys (though they are in the majority), but for all makes. It's a great weekend to meet other bikers or just to ride around. Motorists are more alert to cyclists because of the sheer numbers. I have ridden around during the past 5 events and have had nothing but a good time. Local Law Enforcement is very motorcycle friendly as long as you are keeping things sane.

The Blowout is held at the Gulfport dragstrip. It is expensive to get in to, but there are quite a few activities. Drag racing, custom bike shows, slow races, barrel races, live bands and some less civilized events. In all it is a pretty good time too.

I'm not looking to see how many want to go to the blowout, just how many would like to meet up and ride one or both days that weekend. We have a great beach for cruising, casinos, good food and some surprisingly beautiful rural roadways. Motorcyle enthusiasts can top that off with a steady flow of bikes of all kinds to look at. We have plenty of motels though they will sell out quickly and I'd even be willing to put up a some folks in my home. All kinds of options available. If we get enough interest, I'll look into getting some T-Shirts made.

Let me know.
