Hi LadyDraco

As they say, best laid plans and all that. Things didn't work out and I didn't get to go. The Outta Sight Racing Team did great through and got first in class..

As for me I'll be sticking close to home this year but I have gotten a few rides in this month. I just started a thread in Day Trippin' of my day rides. It's nothing exciting just some of the things I've been seeing. You can check it out here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=711781

Hope all is going well for you and the rest of the gals here.

We went to the Ranger Station in Newport and picked up a ORV map. I think the Bady Bauld trail is the one we went on. It is right outside of Cusick. We went last wed. and we were the only ones there. I was riding a drz125. Perfect little bike to zip around on the trails. It helped me develop my skills. I probably rode for about 10 miles standing on the pegs. I can't wait to get back there.

Laugh Hi gals!

I just started riding. (Barely over 100 miles in the saddle, so I'm a serious n00B.) I just wanted to pop in and say hi to everyone. The reason I began to ride at the age of 44 was twofold. I was terrified of motorcycles since I was rather young when I had a small 'crash' on a little 70 that didn't hurt me much, but it terrified me out of ever climbing on a bike again. Then, I recently lost both of my parents at the young age of 67 to cancer. I realized that I didn't want to go out of this world with such a fear hanging over my head. The inmates here helped me to decide to at least try to conquer this fear, so I took the MSF course, bought a little Ninjette, and viola, I'm actually riding...and having an absolute blast doing it. I didn't realize it would be this much fun. I was actually only going to conquer my fears then ride for cheap gas bills, but I'm having too much fun to even drive the car again. If anyone lives in the NE TN and wants to ride, pm me. We'll get together if you don't mind riding with a complete noob.

Nice to meet you all!

I'm in Jonesborough, on the NC/TN line. Looks like you're around 125 miles away from me.
