    Hi everyone,
    I just joined the group and wanted to introduce myself. I ride a DL650 (pavement commuting & 2up) and an XT225 (dirt, trail, sometimes street) and am in Beavercreek (just east of Dayton).
    I'm looking to do more 2up adventure touring and more dirt/street riding. I've ridden in a few street group rides before (mostly sportbike groups with me on my previous cruiser) and been dirt riding multiple times on my own and once "ate the dust" of fast associates. I'd lso like to get into more trail riding with others (safety in numbers, more fun with friends, etc).

    Cheers,
    -Brian

    Cincinnati the best riding in the area, aint here
    Guys, I maintain the list for the group in an excel spreadsheet. I think we need to add everyone's ADVrider user names to that list.
    I don't know who half the people responding here are. Some are guys I see on a regular basis, but some user names give me no clue without a signature in the post.

    Like others it seems, looking to switch from street to more adventure touring. Currently have a triumph bonneville and looking to switch to the tiger 800 (still debating between xc and non-xc versions as I'll probably do way more street than dirt and will probably do a fair amount of 2-up). Hope to make it out to a Thursday meeting some time, though can be tricky with other things going on. In the mean time, if there's an email list I'd like to receive notifications on potential rides, etc.

    Looking forward to meeting folks,
    Bier (Patrick)

    Good to see everyone last night, sorry I didn't get to say hi to everyone (again, I suck at social interaction). For those interested, here is the thread discussing the upcoming ride in Madison, IN.


    I am planning to go, and if the weather is nice I might camp and make it a two day event.

    I listed it for sale last week. With the current market, I'm guessing your safe for the next five years or so. :doh


    I guess I should be. I'll PM you my email. I don't have a dual sport at this time, but that could change any time. I'm sacrificing all the bling on my ducati to finance a couple new bikes added to the stable. I should be shopping over the next few weeks.
