Shelby,NC here. There are several KLR riders around these parts that get together and ride pretty regularly. Everyone is welcome though.

Evilone,
Called the # on your PM ?

Jamie,
How was your ride a couple of weeks ago ? I plan on riding some in that area next weekend, possibly Jan 21. Will probably post, so the new members in the area can discover some new riding places.

Man you guys in the western part of the state have it rough. Must be hard to ride all those twisty roads.












Wish I had them here.

Wicked Tatham Gap trail

Hey- Evilone- check out the tatham gap trail-just search tatham gap on google. This is part of the "trail of tears" built in 1838 to move the Cherokee Indians to Oklahoma. DR650 is perfect for this road! How do I know-did it last summer-did not see but one car the whole time!

You picked a good one to miss. There was a lot of salt and slag on the paved roads and the gravel was under about an inch of solid ice.

I'll try to make the 21st ride.

I went riding last Sunday, took the 221 out of Blowing Rock and up towards Holloway MTN rd and then onto the Parkway. I pulled over at one of the over looks to change gloves and a park ranger pulled in to warn me about two sections of the parkway that had just been re-opened to traffic because of black ice and that it was still sketchy in places, very nice of him to have warned me.... The 221 was pretty bad, black ice and way to much salt, made for an interesting ride. I did a round trip of 120 miles. Its now Saturday and its snowing and could gust up to 70mph so I don’t think ill be riding today.

Bollocks, I've had the same problem around Maggie Valley. Actually dropped my KLR for the first time recently on an iced gravel road!

I guess the trade-off for having 3 wonderful seasons of riding in N.C. is taking a little time off in the winter. I think I'll have to limit myself to days well above 40 from now on and stay out of the shade!

Couple of us old farts ride around Wilson Gorge in the Pisgah National Forest and around Table Rock outside Morganton.Pretty good network of dirt roads and national forest roads. Got a 32 foot Wilderness camper at Brown Mountain Beach. Be glad to have you join us some time.

Evil one,

I live in Morganton and hit the trail/road on my XR 650 pretty often.


Cheers
