Don't get me wrong, it's still pretty fun, but I think there are better trails. I think Brushy Mountain has much better trails for a bike. I'm wanting to take my son riding out there sometime soon.

I doubt I'll be able to get out this weekend, but I'm sure I'll see you around!
My son is 10 now. He doesn't have his own bike anymore, as hockey takes up most of his weekends now. But he is interested in riding again, so I may shop for a bike for him next Spring.

Thanks for the info on the parks. I had looked into Brushy Mtn, but it's almost another hour of driving compared to CAW and TNT (for me, anyway), so I was leaning toward the closer parks.

Thanks Carolina Adventure Cycles!

The guys at CAC in Matthews slapped this new set of Heidenau K60's on my KLR for me this weekend. I was very impressed with their attitude and service. If you need work done on your ride I would highly recommend them.

A RR huh? Subscribed.

I'm in TN for two weeks starting Sunday so I won't be able to tag along behind you like the guy that nobody wants to talk to, OR be at this months meet up to hear all the bullshit you guys come up with. Double screwed by work, damn...

Hope you guys have a fun and safe trip!

Hey guys, I'm fairly new to this forum. I recently bought a WRR and trying to find people to meet up with and places to ride. I'm around the Charlotte and Hickory area on any given day, location depends on time of day though.

Any suggestions of where to ride this weekend?

-Matt
