Laugh Middle Tennessee Roll Call!

Who lives in the area?
Looking for some new like-minded riders?
This could be the place to meet up!

I will start,

Lavergne, TN
2005 Vstrom
I like going fast when the situation allows.
Ridden pavement all over Tennessee and surounding states.
I have just started some lite off-roading this year.

Post up!

Ride a lot in the Smokys in TN and NC.
If you come over this way, give me a holler.

2005 DL1000 here in Franklin, TN. For close, local area riding, I like the Leipers Fork area. I'm a dirt bike rider from way back (lived in the desert southwest), but got a street bike for these here parts. I like a brisk pace too. Given my motorcycling history, I love dirt roads, but don't know of any good ones (quality and distance) in the local area. Do you? Usually head for the mountains of East TN for the good dirt roads.

German Trick - I'm 10-15 minutes north of you and have a long 4 day weekend . Let me know when you want to ride and I'll keep you company and help you explore. MotoRider, how about you?

Several of us inmates are in "Middle Eastern" TN, a.k.a Chattavegas. Boojum, SuppermoTodd, Troutrider, Bman, Dualsportrides, and some others who lurk. I ride in the Cherokee/Chattahooche Nat Forest every week. Sometimes street, sometimes dirt. Its all good.

I'm in Nashville. I ride both street and dirt. Consider joining NATRA (North Alabama Trail Riders Association) who has 5,000 acres of trails in Westpoint, Tn, a couple hours south of Nashville.

Hey VS,

I live in LaVergne too. I have a 2005 BMW R1200GS and a 2001 KTM 640 Adventure. I bet we live in the same subdivision. Give me a shout.

OK, well, I'd be clueless on dirt but love the wheels on the pavement. I second the point of enjoying our blessed mother of acceleration but I'm fer sure not a squid. Current ride, 2002 SV650 yellow naked.

there are more, you just have to know where to look, Leipers Fork Pucketts Country Store on a Sunday morning from 7 to around 10 is a good place to find ADV riders with hangovers eating greasy breakfasts.........

Howzabout you taking off the last week of July and riding the Six Days of Michigan with me? That is, if'n you ain't askeered and the Mingemaster lets you out of the house other than to buy feminine Hi-Jean products.
