Hey, Shane.
Well, maybe we can swing by there later in the ride.
How late will you be cooking burgers???

FAQ's

Thanx for all the PM's guys:

FAQ's:

# Yes, there can be more than one ride, depending on who shows up on what kind of bike. For instance, if 5 or 10 guys show up on dualsports, and 5 or 10 guys show up on streetbikes, then they would form 2 different groups for 2 different rides that Saturday.

# Yes, bring your friends.

# Yes, you can post it elsewhere.

# Yes, bring your maps and GPS's

Correct , but Mike can only go on one ride at a time, and you don't know which bike Mike is gonna be ridin' on any given Saturday, so be prepared.


(If I am on a medium sized supermoto, I will probably ride twisty pavement with gravel connectors, which means the guys with knobbies will want to go a different way with more dirt, AND the strictly pavement riders will want their own route. The following week, I may show up on a big supermoto and stick to twisty pavement).

Well looks like the weather should be perfect this Saturday and higher shady elevations should feel great :)
Also if anyone needs the gps address it is as follows
14545 Nc 209 Hwy
or
35.751941,-82.869661

Good to meet you. When you drop that luggage & tire pressure, we will be able to cover a lot more ground. You need an owner's manual for starters. You should be able to download one. From what I can tell, your stock tire pressure should be 21 front, and 28 rear, and you want to run LESS than that on the kinds of gravel roads we were riding. You were running WAY too much air.
Later, Mike

I'm looking forward to coming out for a ride this weekend. I know all bikes are welcome, but seeing this group is just getting off the ground, what bikes showed up last weekend and does anyone have a suggestion on whether I should bring my Adv 950 or 690 Enduro?

I'm recovering from an injury. I will show up on either a 690 or 990 Supermoto, & will be riding on twisty pavement only this weekend, but feel free to show up on dirtbikes or whatever, & decide on different rides amongst yourselves if you like, AND/OR some of you may decide to ride along with me for as long as I can go
(I rode twisty pavement for about 5 hours today, Fri 6/21, & feel OK).


Hopefully I will be able to ride a little bit rougher roads again the following weekend.
