We'll help you with that. I love blazing new trails.

Moving to the area from VA

*Checking in.*

I'm moving to the area after Tgiving - just accepted a gig working just west of Lake Norman in Denver area. I'll be looking to forge new relationships. I'm also looking for a place to rent or a housemate for at least a year. Any referrals out there? I'm single and a very young and spirited 56 y/o. I'm also an MSF rider coach - hope to be doing a little of that too in NC.

Cheers:)
Paul

Johnston Road? The one 2 miles from my front door? Trails?

Oh yeah, you're the guy that named himself after "the BPG trails"...

Having lived in Charlotte for 18 months now, it's about time I get my butt out to one of these. See you guys Thursday

I guess this is what I was waiting for, picked it up on Saturday:

Welcome! Looking forward to meeting you on Thursday.

Although, the Rex would have still qualified you! I hope it's one of the faster green ones?

It most certainly is!


Unfortunately it started spitting out fourth gear last weekend so its time to split the cases ...

Thanks! I'm having a blast on it! I picked it up from a good friend of mine for $1k.

I've already started working on it. Recovered the seat and added some mirrors I had in the garage.

Exploring on my lunch break today hiding under I-77.


Found a little trail on my way home that led to a pond.


I may be able to escape for a little while on Sunday...

I may not be able to say no. If it doesn't rain much between now and then I'm likely "IN".

I need to put those D606's on! Jon (JMforPres) has kindly offered to help, but we're not sure when we'll get to it (I am tied up Saturday 11 to 3). I suppose if I've ridden on the Trailwings this long, one more weekend won't hurt?

Decisions decisions.
