Aw, well that sucks.

Not about your anniversary, I mean.
About the ride, I mean.

This one's for a 4th of July party thrown by some friends in Pittsburgh. I'm bringing them some Cackalacky BBQ aka 'civilization'. I make the run a few times a year, though. I'm going to make it again in early August.


So has anybody seen this GIANT group of bikes on 15/501, east side of Chapel Hill on Sunday mornings? Huge parking lot full. All makes & models.

That would be Michaels. Ita a restraunt at the end of a strip-mall and people get together on Sun. morning. Attendance seems to be dependant on weather, and there are alllllllllllllllllll kinds of bikes there on a good turn-out!

Jim,

I was thinking about a run down to the beach, or to the mountains, just a slab ride. Basically just to get some miles on the bike and get out of the house. So far there is three, you me and one other interested. You arent far from me so we can meet up and ride to wherever is decided to group.

Truckin Thumper there is a guy on here and KLRworld that has a KLR650, and a neighbor 3 streets down from him that has a DRZ400sm. Look up Ron_nc on here(even on this thread I think) and shoot him a pm. He is ALWAYS looking to ride. Had his KLR 15 months and had 20k on it :) I am in Lumberton as I type helping him out. I live 20 miles north of Bragg. Send me a pm if you want to get together and ride a little.

Hey Chad and Ron,

We need to get together and ride again (I'm part of the Suzuki contingent from Clinton that met up with ya'll in Lumberton last year). I've been wanting to check out those sand hills ya'll rode the day we got together and had to split early. Anything else is good too...

I'm thinking about taking next week off and taking the DR to the mountains... maybe ride the BRP and explore some of the dirt roads that shoot off of it every now and again. Otherwise, I'm around and would love to ride.

In related news... Eastwood bought a DRZ, and is thinking of selling the KLR. Crazo (the other Chad) has just shipped off to Romania for 3+ months, and I'm babysitting his bikes for him... have 5 bikes in the garage right now, so i need to do some riding!

+1

I also took private lessons from Motomark - very good and not sure if you know...but Mark is the instructor for the NC Highway Partrol Motobrigade.

Rich,
If you could get the time to ride out that would be great. As for the other sand trails, I think the construction equipment is taking over that area(not sure). Riding with you guys was awesome!

Femme,
Sorry that I picked a bad day :( It was just a day a couple weeks away just to get some miles on the bike, maybe meet up and put some faces to the screennames.

I may tag along, but I've got something to do the 15th and don't know that I can get away both days. I'll just have to play it by ear...
