My 1st try, I had a great time meeting and riding with all of you guys. Maybe next time we ride we can see where we are going. It was big fun seeing a line of dualsport bikes roll thru those curves leaving Danbury.

I tried to find the Youtube GSXR- deer video but failed.... It was awesome though.

After we parted ways at Meadows of Dan, two German Shepards tried to take me out.... It was a close one. I had the rear tire locked and sliding and the front tire had to have brushed one of the dogs. Pissed me off. I hate dogs that chase bikes....


I asked my passenger if I scared her at the top off Squirrel Spur and she said only at the bottom when I had my eyes open....

Glad to hear so many of the Piedmont area ADV crew got out and braved the elements.
We had 6 riders show up , some came from the other side of Greensboro in heavy dense fog !!
As a group we decided to call the ride a success at the start point and head home due to lack of visibility. Safety first !!!

Thanks to Neal from Greensboro for coming over and introducing himself !!

Let's plan something for when the weather breaks.
Doug

Supplying I can borrow a bike.....

We can try a run to the Wilson creek area soon.

It is only 80 miles from my house. Of course we would want to take the straightest route there....

I'm more of a daytripper myself though.

Second post and he's coming on strong!

I didn't mean anything other than hormones are getting out of control here. I'm fairly sure I did the damage though. I hope...well....um.....yea.

I feel like an IDIOT!!!

I just put all the clues together........ dual sport..... red Bronco..... XR250.....YOU CAME UP AND TALKED TO ME AND MY GROUP OF BUDDIES WHILE WE WERE TAKING A BREAK! It never occurred to me that was you. I even passed you on I-40 on the way home!

Maybe next time we'll actually get to RIDE together!

I hope you had as good a time as we did. Brown Mountain was AWESOME Friday!
