    Well looks like the weather should be perfect this Saturday and higher shady elevations should feel great :)
    Also if anyone needs the gps address it is as follows
    14545 Nc 209 Hwy
    or

    Good to meet you. When you drop that luggage & tire pressure, we will be able to cover a lot more ground. You need an owner's manual for starters. You should be able to download one. From what I can tell, your stock tire pressure should be 21 front, and 28 rear, and you want to run LESS than that on the kinds of gravel roads we were riding. You were running WAY too much air.
    Later, Mike

    I'm looking forward to coming out for a ride this weekend. I know all bikes are welcome, but seeing this group is just getting off the ground, what bikes showed up last weekend and does anyone have a suggestion on whether I should bring my Adv 950 or 690 Enduro?

    I'm recovering from an injury. I will show up on either a 690 or 990 Supermoto, & will be riding on twisty pavement only this weekend, but feel free to show up on dirtbikes or whatever, & decide on different rides amongst yourselves if you like, AND/OR some of you may decide to ride along with me for as long as I can go
    (I rode twisty pavement for about 5 hours today, Fri 6/21, & feel OK).


    Hopefully I will be able to ride a little bit rougher roads again the following weekend.

    started to make the ride over this morning, but went on a bicycle ride instead. Planning on doing a few of these, but I've been on call the past couple of weekends, so I need to stay close by.:deal.

    Yeah, safety is always first. Riders concentrate on riding safely.
    Riding to catch up is not necessary, because someone will always be waiting at the next turn.
    We can't get a full ride in if we have to stop to get someone to the hospital:nah.
