Here are a few pictures taken of the new Blues Landing building., we are getting closer. Shirley & I would like to welcome our new Manager Sabrina Dexter who started this past Monday and also took these amazing pictures. Along with Sabrina we have Leslie Outlaw managing our kitchen making a great duo to kick off the new Blues Landing. What a Duo they will make.

Paris Landing/Kentucky Lake KOA The Honda ST1100 and ST1300 motorcycles club, aka, "ST-Owners Club", have been using the Paris Landing area for 10 years now as their home base to ride around the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation area and ride the ferry boats across the Tennessee River (Kentucky Lake). This is the first year the Paris Landing KOA Kampground hosted this group, and what a great group of guys and gals!! Thanks FerrySTOC riders for the great time. Also, thanks to the Paris Tourism League for helping out with this event, too!

Bringing long distance, cross country riders to the Paris Landing area as a base for local area riding and group camping. Meet Sport Touring and ADV riders who are passionate and serious about their riding. We ride a little further, a little faster and a little safer than typical motorcyclists. Once again, we anticipate the arrival of riders from places as far away as California, Florida, New York and everywhere in between. Heck, we might even have some Canadians join us again!
FerrySTOC started as an idea during a trip to the Blue Ridge Gathering in the Fall of ’09, an event on the ST-owners.com calendar. (STOC=ST Owners Club is a free, internet based riding club.) Why not have an event themed on the 4 rivers area and ride the ferries that cross those rivers? And ... just to play a little bit on the theme, let’s have a Gothic based Tinkerbell fairy riding a motorcycle as our trademark. Why not bring more tourists into our local community? As time has passed, this event has grown a loyal following and expanded with suggested routes for the Adventure riders - riders who lust after gravel roads and back woods exploration in rural areas. With Land Between The Lakes just across the river, this event brings the ADV riders together with long distance sport touring riders, all in the name of fun.
All riders are welcome, regardless of make or model. We do ask that you wear full safety gear, ride within your personal abilities and limits of safety, absolutely NO DRUGS and please, no drinks until kickstands are down for the day. It’s all in the name of fun and getting to visit new friends from around the country.
Update on the Nina and Pinta. We just received word that they are still delayed at the lock in Alabama and are canceling their stop with us and are not going to reschedule at this time. Sorry for any inconvenience.
From the Lakeview Grill Thanks for visiting us all the way from Germany! These two lovely folks biked here all the way from Washington DC headed to San Francisco! And have done the same all over the globe! Safe travels!

Another update on the Nina and the Pinta: They will NOT be here May 10-12. We apologize but due to events on the waterway the ships are taking to get to Paris Landing, they have been delayed. We hope to have an update this week on when they might be able to arrive.
