Anyone near upstate SC, GA, NC want to ride?

I live between Greenville and Spartanburg, and would like to find some people to ride local, and not so local trails with.

The cool thing is that Horsepasture is open year round now to licensed vehicles.

Sorry I missed your post. The DR is down for a little maintanence, but I would like to ride some time. I have found some great places to ride if I can get someone to go with me. The DR Should be up by the weekend of the 10th.. PM me when you want to ride.

I've been on horsepasture, it's basicly a dirt road with deep gravel. Not bad, but there is much more interesting riding in the area. How do you feel about jeep and ATV trails? PM me when you want to ride..

I did about 230 mi. Saturday.When I rode out on the rock in the last pic,there where 3 girls out on the rock with their sleeping bags..
Rode over to Wayahuta and made a couple loops. Came back across Pinnacle and ran into a couple guys,one on a new 690 and the other on a DRZ.

I've been to the NC Gorges / SC Bad Creek a couple times. Here's a pic of last year:



I went once more this year following a Dakar, so no time for pics.

Here's topless Suzie on Wolf Mountain Rd



So, when are we riding?

So many folks right here in Brevard!

If anybody would take pity on me and share some good routes, I would really appreciate it. I just got a Husa 390, after years away from riding, and I'd like to maximize my off-asphalt miles.

I've already begun poking around Buncombe Co., exploring the old access routes over the gaps, but most of them are now gated and off-limits. I sure could use folks' advice.

I have an adventure blog www.SpiritStrike.com that I write all the trips up on.

Next weekend I will get the Gorges trip posted up, but in the mean time you can find some maps for where we went on other trips. That may give you some ideas on places to ride.

I'm heading to your blog, right now.
