    Hello everyone. New to ADVForum. Lived in Hmpton Roads for years and own a 2007 WeeStrom for 3 of them. Didn't ride any of 2016 because of work-ups and deployment. Never been off road either. From reading most of the recent pages I see KLR and KTM 650 and below are the bikes of choice. Just wanted to say hi and hope I can stay active for awhile as long as another deployment doesnt pop up.

    Been reading up on that! Looks like a great reason to get out and ride somewhere other than to work. I'll be joining the fun soon.

    There is a 2012 DL1000A for sale under 220 miles away from us on cycletrader. It only has 1600 miles on the bike:-) Crazy! I have 30,000 miles on my 2007....Thinking more and more on an upgrade to a 1000 cc

    Only 30k miles. Not even broken in. I turned 57k last weekend. Need to change the coolant. The best upgrade was the 4 piston GSXR calipers.

    Wish I could go. I planned to since two years ago when it was rained out. It's a week tooooooo early. It's supposed to start the first Saturday of October. It's starts on the 30 September.

    I liked the Pine Barrens 500 last year. Hotels make it expensive but standing on the pegs through the sand all day a bed is so much better than the ground. I'm temped to go but with son getting married in September may just do a WVa trip in October. The ninth is a holiday for me.

    Not signed up for the Shen, but I do have a spot on the list for twin valley. I may have to bow out but if I go, I'm hoping to ride out with any locals who are going.

    Gloucester question. Anyone recommend a place in Gloucester, Mathews or Middlesex that does walk in state inspection on motorcycles on Saturday? My favorite place is not open on Saturday anymore. Looking for a place I don't have to argue that my rotors look too thin when I've measure them with calibrates mics.
