Stobie, Karen, Porterfish and others, If you are in the neighborhood this weekend, let me know. Stobie knows the way to my abode, drop in Sunday if you're in the area. I may put my street tires on this week so I'll be up for a road ride, dirt ride or any kind of a ride, excluding a poker run.

Hope to meet the rest of you soon.
DD
Here's a little enticement.

Okay!
Sounds like the weather may brighten this weekend as well.
I'd like to ride....if others are up to it. And, okay, I'll be a bit "girly" here. I'd like to stay on the black-top this weekend!

So, put on those road tires, DirtDog

I'm in Charlotte -- and would love to meet others to ride that very special road you posted!

Any takers leaving the Charlotte area? If not, where can I meet you guys and when!

Karen

Howdy all.

I currently live outside of Athens, GA. But I'm purchasing a piece of property in the Western North Carolina mountains.

Once the deal closes (hopefully the end of this month), I was thinking of hosting a GS campout. 253 acres of wooded, secluded paradise (IMO). Here are a couple of pics and stuff. Hard to take pictures of it and do it justice.
PICTURES

Actually, I was just up there today (in my truck), checking out the new I-26 extension. It runs really close to one edge of the property and I wanted to make sure that none of the noise made it over the ridges.

Anywho . . . even if a camping-meet doesn't materialize soon, I'll be in the area quite a bit.

So, all of you NC riders, keep me posted.

I am grounded. No tread on the ole tires. Yea, I know I have said it before. But I have been milking them. 13K and they are all over the road.

Once I get new shoes, I will be up for a ride, run, camp, etc. Keep it posting.

Karen, was that you on hwy 73@ 16 yesterday(wed) afternoon?
I saw someone on a blue and white gs, not a common sight in lincoln county. I would have stopped but a sheriff was tailgating me after having followed me for about 5 oblivious miles standing on the pegs and I figured a quick u-turn would have got me pulled for sure, as it was he didnt pull me over, I was rather surprised.

Have fun camping all, I am off to CO for a wedding.

Hello Porterfish,
No, unfortunately, that wasn't me. I was sitting behind a desk thinking about riding!

Have a great time at the wedding and looking forward to catching up with you upon your return.

Karen

Okay Gentlemen,
Sounds like there is enough of us who want to get together this weekend and ride some good roads.

I'd be glad to organize, yet so new to the site, not sure where in the heck all of you live. Would meeting at the Hickory BMW shop work? I think it is called Extreme......

Lastly, are we riding Sunday?

Looking forward to hearing from you all!
Karen

Karen, I live 11 miles north of EXTREME BMW, would rather not meet there after the treatment from them lately...Long Story.
My leg has been giving me some grief this week so I'm going to the Dr tomorrow to make sure everything is all right. If it is, I would like everyone to stop in here to socialize a bit and then go for a nice ride. If leg is bunged up, I would still like all to come here and I can take a few pics of the crowd. Do you and do others have map programs so I can just send my address in PM to you all. Like I said before, Stobie knows the way.
Look forward to meeting you.
DD

OK, I'm officially in. Who wants to meet where? I know the way to DD's, and my route takes me thru Lincolnton. We could meet at any site in L'ton near 321, or I could drag out the mapbook and find a less direct route. The 321 route takes us right past Extreme, so we could meet there as well.

I'm open to suggestions.

DD, you think Skidmark will show up?

I dunno, he got a new shipment of porn tapes so I suspect we won't see him for a while.

Okay, Stobie....
You pick a place in Lincolnton and I'd love to meet you there....then you can lead the way.......and I'll be coming 23/27. So if it is easier for me to meet you somewhere on that route; just let me know.

And to be sure -- we're talking about Sunday, right?

I'm definitely looking forward to riding!

Karen

I'll be coming off of 321 from Asheville, so I'm not yet sure if I'll be coming north or south. But give me a street address and I'll be there. What time are we meeting?
