I used to live in Alexandria, VA and moved to NS in 2005. If I had to move back to the east coast, US, I'd move to Asheville. Beautiful country down there...and great roads!

An update.

r1100gs now has 36,000. This noise still comes and goes. All's well and have done nothing to the FD or gear box. It is less pronounced when warm. Ride and don't worry
