    Were you on the Honda 250 going E on 67? If so, I was on the KTM, thanks and working on setting things up. If you haven't already checked out LostRider threads. He's modded up a 250 real nice though they look to be a nice lightweight ride as is. Didn't know there were so many "locals" and plan on hitting AAA at some point for some big bikeTAT practice.

    That was me on the Honda. Small world, but then again 60 degrees in the dead of winter I would be surprised if I didn't see people out riding. I've been following lost rider's posts, he's got his CRF set up nice, I'm in the process of getting mine sorted.

    Lets get a ride together sometime.

    beautiful view. Sunday is looking to be a nice day. My tentative plan is to head back up that way, ride in and around Stone Mountain, see if I can find more views like that.

    There is no other view like this one unless you get up on the BR parkway, years ago when the trees were much lower you had a more than a 180 degree unobstructed view of the horizon.

    I'm showing my age.

    Im thinking about a ride this Sunday as well. I will be looking to put more miles under me than just Stone mt though.

    Anybody else up for a ride on Sunday?

    I'd like to get out for a longer ride on Sunday but I'm working with time constraints. My better half has a busy weekend ahead and is going to need my assistance. I'll count myself lucky if I can get out of the city limits.

    Sounds good.

    I am taking my son to the IMS in Charlotte on Saturday since it looks like rain. Im hoping to ride 16 to Marion and beyond or maybe ride across to the Snake via 58 on Sunday. Of course, since you guys are from Winston. I could always shoot up Squirrel Spur to Indian valley and around VA.

    Are there any trails off Squirrel or are we talking strictly on roading?
