Hey, we should schedule a C-ville area ADVrider pizza night there!
This might call for its own thread. I'm IN.

Plus I can walk there easily from one of my work locations (don't ask).

If we can get a ride together and get pizza and beer afterward that would be very cool. I am good for a couple of pizzas and a 12 pack.

And is there a group here that goes out that tolerates beginners to come along?

Thx!
Hey Sarah I live in Baltimore also and have an Aprilia Pegaso 650. Almost the same bike !! I'm not an expert off road but I have seen amazing pictures of Pegs and Dakar's doing everything possible , so I'm going to learn how they do it!! I'd like to start doing off-road stuff as well so I'm starting to make some modifications on my bike to make it ready for some dirt ride.(Only in the hope to learn something from Scorch!!) I'm new on the area and haven't have the opportunity to ride very much arround yet. Actually I only have done some "solo" riding and went to ride ones with ED "el adventurero solitario". I will like to start riding with you as much as possible so just let me know!!
Are you going tomorrow to meet the adventure riders?? Just send me a message and I ride with you tomorrow if is ok with you ! I don't know how to get there !!
However is nice that we are going to star using or Aprilia -BMW bikes to something alse than road!!

There was also discussion of regrouping after the show at RFD for more beer (at least for those of us who are metro-ing)

I will be in that group. I think I got a small arm fracture, so no riding for a week or so.
