    hello.

    do you want to.. ride SUNDAY ,most of the day -all year-, finding new areas to ride, new people to meet , and stop to eat (good food) at some little -mostly unknown place...:1drink
    we would rotate where/what, we ride, too meet, and where to eat.:deal ... so can , really ride all areas around.. also meeting more folks.. example; one ride/stop maybe right at your back door,,(maybe you will want to lead/ know a good trail ??!!), while another trip is a good hr away from home,,(area you have never been)..??.. even small groups meeting to ride together ,in another area... etc ,,etc..

    then please lets get together....:freaky

    i'm in cashiers/highlands = close to ga or sc state lines 15min est ... tenn/dragon/murphy/andrews or ashville est 1.5hrs way..
    sun/mon/tue are my free days,,now... i work most every fri/sat thro the year.... missing most all normal rallies...


    so if want to ride sun ,mon or ,tue................ please get n touch......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...........

    There used to be a monthly WNC ADV dinner, but, the dinner faded away. Now, most of the Asheville area riders just meet at Wedge Brewing on Wednesday nights. If the weather is nice, there will be a lot of bikes. If it's cold, a lot of riders will show up, but, in cages instead of on bikes.

    I'm suggesting you come out to the Wedge on Wednesdays, when you can, because that's where everyone meets up, and, a lot of people plan their weekend rides there. If you have Sundays off, you should be able to convince some folks to ride on Sunday.

    Wedge has beer, and food trucks set up in the parking lot.

    The monthly dinners were fun. We met at different places all around the area, but, it was hard to get everyone to decide on a place to meet each time.

    If you have a ride planned, I recommend posting up on the WNC main thread, and on the WNC Motorcyclists facebook page. Then, you're sure to get some responses. But, you've really got to post something specific to get any kind of response.

    My schedules are weird. I never know my Sunday schedule until Friday or Saturday. So, it's really hard for me to plan a ride for Sunday. My bike is out of commission for the next few days while I replace my chain and sprockets, but, I might be up for something next week depending on the work schedule.

    probaly ride there ,no matter the temp as long as it not wet..

    so as to ,getting a monthly ride/eat , thing going... :deal
    1 we could start an plan ,picking spots/area to ride,, AS i have endless back roads, to about any where around my area,,hwy 28/64/107/281/skyway etc,,etc ,, waterfalls everywhere !!! plus Roy a Taylor = wayehutta is in my back yard for serious 30est mile,, off-road public park = not open all year..

    2 make calender marking dates, an areas ,to plan on ride in.... like mine?? an who ever feels/comfortable leading, hopefully will take you places, , you have never been...??...

    3 after pinning down where ,more folks can meet/like area to ride .. we would just rotate places.. an hope to throw some other odd/different route in there = summer warmer more daylight/time , winter cold n dark fast... trust me i ride down to sc/ga just for lunch in winter ,because can be least ten degree colder ,up here at my place....


    again THANKS !!!! hope to see ya, next sunday -18th ..??..!!..

    Local Moto, pm me this week if you want to ride. I'm in the lake Toxaway area, so should be close to you. I live in Atlanta and am only here weekends, but have taken this week off to ride and work on the house.

    Most of my riding around here has been on the street bike, but I'm ready to explore on my EXC. I see lots of gravel roads, would be much more interested in single track trail if there is any to be found.

    Naw...wuz on the KTM with localmoto but I am getting it dialed into fit me. Repositioned the bars a little so I can stand better and stuff like that. It felt good on a test run today up 215. Fueled that beast up today and it held almost 6 gallons and already had over a 100 mile range of fuel in it :lol3 Everybody talks about the Adventure feeling top heavy when fueled...maybe it's my numbskull but it was fine to me and rides about like the GS except geared lower in 1st thru 3rd, and has less waggle in steep gravel hairpins what few I have tried ( weight in front maybe? or taller suspension affects the head angle attitude??). Maybe tomorrow I'll get out and try to run out that tank of petro...what u doin this week? comin home?? Have a Happy Turkey!
