    I hear you dude. My KLR is in New Bern. I want to ride it but it's cold. Probably gonna truck it.

    Was one of you guys riding a green KLR at Home Depot in Lynchburg yesterday? Saw a guy that fit the ADV bill wearing a hiviz yellow jacket.

    Mava you don't go to or work at LU do you? Every time I'm on campus I see a green KLR there with pelican panniers.

    We do need a name.

    BRDS, Blue Ridge Dual Sports? That's kinda lame but all I got.

    Yeah, I work there, in the library. That's my ride. I take it you work here or go to school here?

    Did you get your KLR yet, Rock?

    I'll hold of changing the thread title until we have something concrete. Actually, doesn't look like you can really change the thread title, unless I'm mistaken.

    if this becomes a tag game,
    I vote you remove 4 or modify it

    #4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.

    Allow file photos for placing. It speeds the game up, and keeps people from having to tag a dry cleaners on their way home like I seem to do a lot. :lol3

    Mava I've been eye balling your ride for a while. My wife works across the street. I attended 02-08, obviously still in town.

    Ah, cool. We had some overlap. I was 05-09. "Across the street?"

    If you ever see me, stop and say hello.

    Wilco. She works in the SOR.

    I was planning to ride a bit on the LU trails once it warmed up.

    I did too. I always had my jeep up there. I know that 4 wheelers are allowed on many of the trails.

    Oh and yes the majority of the trails are posted no motor vehicles. But there are some trails for power. I'll find out.

    The majority of traffic there is mtn bike, running/hiking and horse back riding.

    My bet is the horse people will not want motos on the trails.
    I am still fighting this cold but will be glad to ride a few miles with you guys once I kick it. This week-end will be great for riding I may have to suck it up and ride anyway.

    If there are decent trails up there for riding, I might have to add a trailer hitch to the Maxima for when we ride up to visit my family. :D
    (wife and daughter don't like riding in the jeep for distances)
    :rofl

    Currently I only knew of the ones around my parents house, which would be fun too. (out towards Rustburg)

    (questionable legality, but worst case would get you a warning and a "knock it off" from Sheriff)
