Wish I could make it out on Monday, but I've gotta work. I may go explore some on Sunday afternoon if you are free... I have a riding buddy that lives nearby who just picked up a DR350 to play with

How was the ride today Matt? I snuck out for an hour on my lunch break and found some interesting areas around Rock Hill. Hope you got to take some serious advantage of this awesome weather we had! Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY

New rider in the area

Hey folks... Wanted to stop in here and introduce myself. I live in Kings Mountain and just acquired an '02 XR650L. I've mostly been hanging out on the "XRL Owner's Sign In" page as I'm getting adjusted to my new ride. Wouldn't mind jumping in on some of the local rides you're doing when my schedule allows it... Right now I work Mon-Fri and am in a pretty rigorous night/weekend college program that concludes next May. I do have some time over the holidays for a ride (between semesters) and will try to make it to the Hawthorne's get-together on the 20th.

Here's some pics of a recent mud bath me and the XRL took near the Lithium Plant in the Bessemer City/Kings Mountain area. These are great trails that run along (and under) I-85... Although I can't officially recommend riding them because they're technically "No Trespassing" and I had heard the law really cracked down on these trails a couple years back. Scroll about halfway down the thread for my post with pics: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...4834&page=3266

Also... I met Augie Dog (not knowing his ADVrider connection) the other night at one of Kings Mountain's finest watering holes... The Bear's Den. Great guy with alot of riding experience who encouraged me to get on here and connect with everyone.

Later on... Clint

Hey Clint! Good to see you over in this thread

and that mud looked NASTY! That must have been a real surprise haha! Hope you can make it on the 20th! I'll let you know next time we plan a little ride. I can usually only get out on the weekends and this time of year even that can be tough.

Welcome! Hope that you will be able to join us on the 20th. Which model Tiger do you have -- 800 or 800XC?

BOIKE333- Happy Birthday man! Get any good shit?

I might make the ride on the 15th. If I can get some work done in the next two weeks.

Can someone give me a little better idea where the gas station is to meet? I have never been down there. I will be coming off 485 onto 49. Do I cross the river?

When you get off 485 at 49 (S. Tryon), stay on 49 southbound until you cross Lake Wylie into South Carolina (maybe 7 or 8 miles from 485). As soon as you cross the bridge, there's two gas stations on the right. We'll meet at the little one. It's less than 150 yards from the bridge.

Another option is that I'm going to be at the Starbucks on S. Tryon about a quarter or half mile south of 485. I'll be there from 9:30 to 9:45 that morning and then will ride down to the gas station in time for the 10 am meet up.

That's the place! Really good riding... Hadn't been on the trails in a few years... Not since hearing stories about people getting flats after riding over trail-spikes that had been set out by hunters and confiscated ATV's after running into cops cruising on 4wheelers! Never witnessed any of this... Only heard stories... Enough to make me look elsewhere for somewhere to ride.
