The bike was all packed and ready to go but I couldn’t find my XM receiver so I stopped in town and picked up another one and got it activated before I hit the road. That was another minor annoyance that added some time onto the trip. In fact, I didn’t get out of Knoxville until almost noon.
Today was a straight shot over to Tunica, Mississippi, a small outpost of casinos and hotels just south of Memphis, TN. It started raining on the way south and the rest of the ride in was a little damp. I got checked in to the hotel and called it an early night.
