I have been lurking on the site for a while but just found this thread. If anyone is interesting in letting me tag along for a ride hit me up. I have been in Charlotte for about 9 years and have been riding street bikes for 20. Currently riding a 1200gs.

Did you get caught in that cloudburst? I was headed North - I got to the other side of Gastonia and it poured. I was glad to be in the truck at that point.

I also wish more NC drivers would turn their lights on (ALL THE LIGHTS - DRL's do nothing when you're coming up behind someone) when it starts raining. It's just good practice... nothing like a gray truck with no lights on in the middle of a downpour.

Just a short shower as I was almost back home...stopped and put rain gear on but wouldn't have really even needed to.

As of this writing, yes.

And it has over half a tank of gas in it, which would be a shame to leave to any new owner (if one steps up - there's been pretty scant activity in the "for sale" thread).

By the way, your signature line is missing two entire motorcycles!
