Charlottesville Riders...where are ya?

Hello all - I recently moved to Cville, and I've been trying to figure out if there's a bike night or a bike place where everyone congregates. Went to a supposed bike night at 7PM tnight at Big Al's in Ruckersville, and I was the only bike that showed up...drag.

Anybody feel like going for a ride, or maybe sharing a good loop? It's no fun riding alone. I've seen a Guzzi Norge, and a KTM 990 SD around these parts, so I know there are some inmates around here. If you see a dork in a red & black Arai XD riding around on a black Harley FLHX, that's me.

Jim

thanks Flash - yeah, I figured the BRP would be a "must to avoid" on weekends. Actually just ran the whole thing a couple of weeks ago, on my way to Indy for the MotoGP, did the Dragon too. I know there's a bunch of great roads around this town, just gotta start digging...

Hey there - welcome to C'ville. There's a few inmates around and I are one. I do know a few loops in the area but they are all of the dual sport kind - do you do gravel on the Harley?

Every now and then we get togeather for dinner somewhere. Hasen't happened in a while so maybe we are due? Whenever it happens, it is announced in the southeast forum ahead of time. There's a bike night at Rivals (near PuttPutt) every so often, but it's tough guy/chopper/crusier crowd - I guess your Harley would fit in well if you are interested.

Some of the best fun pavement roads around are those that go up and over the Blue Ridge Parkway. Rt. 56 past Montebello to Vesuivs is my favorite.

Finally thought to check on here if there were any cville riders...

I'm checking in! I ride a 89 honda nx250, mostly for commuting. I've seen another nx just like mine around town, but always parked. Went for a group ride a couple weeks ago... anyone interested while the weather stays nice?

Big Orange

Finally on a proper ADV bike. (KTM 950 ADV)
Ready to check out some of the old fire roads along the BRM. Been alot of years since I've been on a bike up there. (many roads/trails were washed away with the great flood)
If anyone is interested, I have a few knarly trails I'd like to check out sometime above Madison.(went as far as I dared on the big GS before turning around). It would be great to have someone else along. (well you know just in case)
