Lots of great dirt and scenic roads in the area. We are truly blessed to live in such a motorcycle friendly area.

My brother (kickstand72) and I live near the Wilkes/ Yadkin line. We ride quite often. I am healing from a shattered collarbone, so I am riding a bit slow myself now.

We will try and post in here when we ride again.

Heal quickly and fully!!

I appreciate any heads up you may have. I am still in the process of learning what kind of riding I want to do, the gear i need.

trying to put cash together to get some upgrades on the bike. gotta get some crash bars and a better skid plate before i go anywhere more than old dirt roads.

thanks for the reply, maybe we will get to ride together some time.. I would like that.

Beautiful bike.

Got a buddy that just bought a red and silver 08 we are going to pick up next week.

Maybe we can get together for a ride soon. I would like that.

AMEN on the crash bars, as soon as i can wrangle the cash that is the deal I am going with. First trip on a trail last night reminded me really quick this is not a little 125 on the dirt.

Thanks for the reply.

Let me know when you feel like schooling a couple of total newbs. (kinda wierd being a 48 yr old newb)

Sunday trail ride

Anybody up for a ride on Sunday? There weather is supposed to be good.

I'm planning to ride on Stone Mtn, which is the NC/TN state line. It's between Boone & MtnCity. There's a lot of trails on top, and a few very tough rocky hill climbs from the TN side. I've been on a lot of it, but there is still a lot that I'd like to explore. There's also a long ridgeline to the south, all the way to Locust Gap, that I'd like to learn the route.

Best for a light bike, with low gearing & good tires, but come on whatever you've got & we'll go where we can.

PM me & we'll decide on a meeting time & post that here for others to join in.

If you'd like to try it another time that would be good too, just let me know.

Damn, I can't believe I am saying this...but I definitely miss riding that road, and the roads near Globe/ Careys Flatt, and going all the way to Blowing Rock on 95% fs road....rock House road, and...y'all have fun!

Wish I could commit, but I finally talked the family into riding ATVs with me this Saturday. Probably can't justify two days in a row to the boss lady. :( But then again, she might have shopping plans for Sunday...and I'll be able to pull it off. So, I'm a "probably not, but maybe".

I'd come on the XT225, which just got some big boy handlebars & footpegs yesterday. They really transformed the feel of the little bike. The WR's wearing new knobbies & I don't think 50 miles of 321 would be good for them.

The weather's looking great. Can't believe it's January. You guys have a good ride & be safe.
