    Welcome back to riding. I live in Pinnacle. Follow the NCNCTAG and the Greensboro meet and greet thread for local activity. The tag game is by far where most of local riders follow.

    I don't know of any trails off hand, but I'd happily meet up with locals to ride. I would be open to making a day trip out to brushy mtn. or something, weather permitting of course.

    Yep, I played the VA TOR that took me to the Busbee Hydro Plant in Ivanhoe. I rode 97n to Galax then 94 to Ivanhoe then 69 to 52 to BRP down Wards Gap to 89 to 66 to home. Great loop and some fun side back rodes.

    Just found an interesting link - Wytheville VA publishes a map of motorcycle rides through the area.

    http://www.visitwytheville.com
    Under drop down box of "what to see and do" is the selection of motorcycle trails.

    I live & work in Winston. Always open to riding with some new friends! Post up any get-togethers, love to meet some of you. Not done any off road riding but would like to give it a try. Got a 650 V-Strom. Some day I'd like to have the equipment & gear to do the camping thing with my bike.

    Was able to get out for a decent ride this past Friday. I made my way to Elkin then took 268 over to Traphill and up 21 almost to Lowgap, here's a pic from the lookout heading up the mountain.

    I passed a guy on a Kawasaki DP on 21 heading towards Lowgap, on the way back in Booneville I saw a guy on a sweet KTM that looked to be all farkled out.

    Was a good day for riding, at least for me. As I was heading out of town I saw a guy on a Harley run all up into the back of a truck on Reynolda road. Took three of us to get his bike up and out of traffic. I didn't see the accident take place so I didn't stick around very long, just long enough to see that the rider was sitting up on his own talking to the paramedics. Hope he's alright and can get back on his bike soon.
