    Hey Vic, Don't forget to mention to Greyghost that you and I have met. I'd like to be included or invited if you guys decide to meet up or go for a ride. However, I will be attending an antique boat meet the latter part of this week so it'll have to be after that before I can meet up with you 2. :)

    Guess that all depends upon where "here" is. ;) Fwiw, I was referring to the Spring Feathercraft meet. It's on Watts Bar lake. As of this morning, about 20 boats are expected. PM me for additional details if you like.

    We are staring to get some action on this thread. All are welcome on any ride and to post up. Lets get a ADV community in Johnson City.

    I have ridden with several groups now (street) and Jamie and I have done a lot of gravel in Virginia. Weather is great. LETS RIDE!

    I’m local and available too Greyghost. Big GS or small bike I’ve got them both and am not working at all right now so I can go pretty much anytime.

    Hello, I'm in Kingsport. Do 90 percent of my time near High Knob area. Vic has been along a few times. I unfortunately still work 50+ a week but weekends are made for riding (when the wife doesn't honey do's). So, contact me with PM and I'll send phone number. Hopefully we can get a group here riding together. IMG_20200510_152306.jpg

    What a coincidence! So am I. Ooc (out of curiosity), are you closer to the dam or to the 93 overpass? Personally, I'm pretty close to the dam.

    I am just a mile or so from I-81. Between the highway and Airport Rd.

    I am supposed to go on a ride this Saturday in an area above Knoxville with some guys I haven't met yet. Not finalized but so far go Friday and camp Friday in Fall Hollow Campground then slab from there to Hohenwald, TN where it's dirt all day I guess. Their videos look great and all are welcome to come. they have a facebook page called Lets take a ride where plans are made, videos shared, etc. So if anyone is up for a little weekend getaway you are welcome to come. So far there are three of us but more are welcome. I'm going to take my KTM so I am prepared for any tighter stuff. Some slabbing involved but I'd rather endure some of that than pick up that GS all day.

    Okay. I'll see how this trip turns out. I have wanted to get over to that area for a while so I'll probably do that if it materializes but definitely want to get out with the locals too. As I mentioned earlier I am not working right now so I can go most any time with some notice. Regular email is jeff2051-at-gmaildotcom. Number 7049285393
