    Dan, was that you at Lower White Store Rd and White Store Rd. intersection yesterday? John and I thought we might have seen you there on your KLR.

    No, that wasn't me.
    I never actually got out to ride yesterday.
    Instead, I spent most of the day troubleshooting and fixing a leak in the ice maker in my fridge. Good times.

    Welcome to the group! :-) I Hope you can make it. It's a good time.

    Unfortunately, I probably won't make another meetup until March 2018. Next week I'll be out of town, and then I will be busy every Thursday evening through February (I coach a hockey team that practices on Thursdays).

    On another note, anyone planning any rides this weekend?

    Stop on by and introduce yourself. It's a good group of guys and we always welcome new riders to the group.

    Finding It ever so difficult to meet you guys. The propeller was overheating (recent flush and fill ??) The FJR would not turn over I hadn't not been on it for 2 months. 2 bikes are staying up in the mens for the summer so I ran out of options. ....there is always next month.

    Stolen Pig Rally date set. I hope to finally see some Charlotte Riders this year. The riding in WV, KY area does not disappoint.

    I am going to try to make it to Stolen Pig this year. I actually was talking to JeepJeff about this a week ago at Iron Horse.

    I'm also going to be putting up my F800GS for sale. Its a 2011 with ~26,000 miles, a lot of farkles, and luggage. Got an opportunity to buy another members KTM 690R. I'd love to see it go locally so that I could buy it back one day when I have more room! I really don't want to sell it. :puke1

    Finally, I am pretty much moved into my new place in the South End area of Charlotte. I have my tire stand all set up and have my groove back with swapping tires if anyone needs help or wants to save some money swapping themselves. I've also always wanted to do a "Tech" day but never had enough of a yard. Anyone be interested in getting together for grilling, light wrenching, BS'ing sometime?

    JMforPres, I'm going to ride the R1100RT to the next dinner (Sep) so you can see it, if you are going to be attending.

    Heading to Charlotte the 8th of Sept and staying till the 16th. Kickstand Burger and Thirsty Beaver Saloon here I come!

    Quick question for you locals is Enoree relatively easy to ride? I am running a 650GS with TKC80's and K60.

    I looked at Uwharrie last time I was here and decide that my Metzler's and low skill would be a bad combo. At least this time I have different tires so muck and mire should be relatively better for me. Still low on skill :lol2

    Yes. Enoree is the easiest trail system in the area to ride on a big bike. Plenty of loops to choose from. Call be for you haul 803-561-4025, it closes if too wet.

    excellent. I saw the Call before you Haul bit but couldn't get a grasp on if I am going to bite off more than I can chew. Hopefully I don't, if not let whatever happens happens :p3rry

    Anyone else doing the Blue Ridge ride out of Pineola this weekend? I'll be looking for someone to ride the dirt route with me.
