SouthEastern Virginia DS Riders

Newcomer to the DS world. Just bought a 2006 KLR 650. I live in Suffolk, VA and was trying to meet other riders in the general area to ride with.

Thanks,

Karl

Welcome to the Asylum



Congratulation's on the new bike. What type of riding are you used to?




ps when you get a chance fill out your profile, you never know who you might meet just becouse they see where you are from.

It's been 10yrs since I was on a motorcycle. Then I briefly had a 1996 CBR900RR for like 9 months. I took a MSF course back then. But, I'd just assume classify myself as a beginner rider.

I want to get into some dirt and woods. Not really looking at doing crazy stuff, just to get off the major roads, explore, take in the scenery.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Good attitude, read through the Perfect Line section here, and heres a link to some good info.

I would suggest you buy the VA and NC DeLorme Atlas & Gazetteer, just taking a quick look at you area I didn't see much. Then again I don't know the area.
If you ever want to head west I'll be happy to show you all the dirt/gravel/mud that you can stand.

And you're welcome.

Just across the water from you.

Welcome. I do most of my riding out in the center of the state - a lot less traffic and a lot of good forest service roads.

I think we have to start going further west.

I may be a possible on Sat. I'll let you know as the week progresses. How did the repairs go?

Notalent and I found some good stuff about 10 minutes south. Dual and single track. Mostly farm access road and hunting roads. Wasn't posted but we did have to circumnavigate a measly gate. Rode for two hours and didn't see anyone (except for a bear we scared the poo out of).

What you riding?

New V-Strom rider in Norfolk

I've recently purchased a 2006 DL1000. When I have the time I'll read some more of these posts but I'm interested in doing some off-road riding. I've already discovered that the V-strom is a wonderful street bike so I'd like to take it off-road. Nothing too terribly wild (this bike is more street than dirt after all).
