    Hey guys, new owner of a GSA trying to find some people and some places to ride around Nashville, TN area.
    Anyone around, or if you are coming to Nashville area, please let me know. Would love to make some new "Adventure friends" and treat you for a drink!
    Off course, all Makers and models ! I am not a "brand name" type of guy. Have owned, Yamaha, Honda, vespas, Triumph and Harleys... It is all about the riding :)
    Cheers

    Hey guys, proud of my 1st Adv bike! Have been riding for 30ys, but never offroad. Looking for someone to explore the offloads and getting some tips of the trade...
    Cheers

    If you get a little group going, let me know. I am in Nashville and woud love to do a little adventure riding. I am not a single track type rider and not up for river crossings but a simple day on some fire roads or wide trails and I am in!

    There are several around. Im in Gallatin and work in Nashville. One of the guys from work is also on here and is from Portland. With the weather warming up it shouldn't be hard to get a small group together for a ride.

    What's a good hotel to stay in downtown Nashville? Where is a good place to go see live music and what not? We want somewhere somewhat safe since we will be on bikes.

    Hilton Guard In is a good one, not very expensive.
    There is a lot of hotels downtown to choose from, all very close to action, but expensive. They all have guarage to leave the bike.

    We ended up staying at the Renaissance. It was expensive though. Nashville is an awesome city.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Brandon, just down 109 from you.
    Touched base with David (Moulin6801) via email a couple weeks ago but then got sick. Plan to give him a call today.
    Will be going on Sloans little ride tomorrow (out of Lieper's Fork), if for no other reason than to meet some locals and ride in a new area (to me).

    Got the Dakar about 6 weeks ago after being away from bikes for a few years. Anxious for some off-road riding.

    Hey guys, found a couple of great rides, some just West Nashville, and a great long offroad/gravel, water crossing South of Franklin,
    Send me a Private note w your phone/text if you want to get together and ride sometime.
    Cheers
