    International motorcycle show Feb 22-24 (I think).

    Anyone want to do a group lunch at say Tilted Kilt then hit the show and see if we can get thrown out? :lol3

    Hey Brendan - Your new place looks hugely better than when I first visted a few months ago:clap Thanks for sharing. I've been meaning to surprise you and drop by one of these days maybe lift a tool or 2 as well and do something constructive.:wink:

    I'd like to get in on this if I'm around those days...

    On a side note, I am on vacation in St. Kitts/Nevis in the West Indies, and today I took the opportunity to rent a 150cc Scooter and circumnavigate Nevis. They drive on the left side of the road here so that was interesting, and I got to dodge goats, sheep and one wild monkey.

    Thanks! I still have my street steed, although have not been riding it much lately! The house is definitely a fun & worthwhile investment.

    We will stop in the parking lot of the Bank of America located in Morganton at 100 N. Green St (Rt 18) at approximately 10:45 AM. Please let me know if your plans have changed and you do not intend to go on the ride.

    I was thinking just one...my liver wont let me go out more then one day a week anymore.

    Friday is no good for me. Saturday would be the best. Sunday if it works out better for others. I picked Tilted Kilt because the food is pretty good and the girls tend to catch my attention with their bouncing "personalities"...:lol3 I'm open to other suggestions as well.

    sooo, one vote for Saturday... and one vote Tilted Kilt.:D

    I'm going to put in a little riding tomorrow if anyone wants to join. I'm going to get breakfast at the Crepe Cellar Kitchen and Pub in NODA around 9. I'll be getting back on the bike to ride between 930 and 10. Look for a white F800GS or shoot me a PM. :ear

    CREPE KITCHEN doesn't open until 1130, so I'm one block up at Jack Beagles Dog Cafe across from the fire station. The head chef apparently knows of a lot of trails in Monroe and has quite a few older two strokes. I did my best to convince him to eventually get a DS. :)

    Still working on the gf that tomorrow's ride won't be very cold. Hopefully we will be able to make it.

    The way it looks right now I should be able to make this. Can probably do either Sat. or Sun., and the Kilt sounds good to me! :freaky

    It turned out to be a beautiful day for a ride up in the mountains. Advzebra and I rode north on Table Rock Rd, cut west across Rt 183 and then rode south on Old NC 105. Was a bit slippery in some spots where it was wet and muddy. Came close to losing the front end at one point while standing (got the front tire in a rut) and was forced to dab to save it. Guess if we were riding a trials course, Advzebra won the day as he rode both sections clean to my 1 dab. Finished the ride with burgers at Jake's back in Morganton.

    Here are some photos from Wiseman's View facing west.
