I have only ridden scooters. Well I've considered getting a "real bike" I just don't think it's me. I'm a scooter guy in my heart.
I just bookmarked your blog and will be following your adventures.
We lived in Tamps for a long time , moved back to central NC. about 7 years ago. Next time i am down there I'll try and look you up.
