    or Richmond VA chatter here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=416843

    All are within 200 miles of your location. :freaky

    Oh yes...........the really COOL people only ride KLR's and Tigers

    The BMW, KTM, Suzuki, Honda, and Yamaha crowd are not bad either

    Howdy and welcome to the area. The VA/NC/TN/WVA borders along the mountians are great riding. You'll have a good time. ADV is an excellent place to find like minded individuals. Bring any Scotch with you?

    Well Hello Jack-Union

    If you haven't already found the Durham Lunch thread, look around in there. I have made several in the past and all types show from riders on 900RR's, Spotlessly clean GS's and DR and XR's. Somedays 4 people show others 10+, just as people have time. There are plenty of riders in the area and hope to meet you soon.

    Use the subscription option to manage threads you want to be alerted on and if they go too far back in the pages all you can look it up in your subscriptions and go right to it.
