Looks like I'm taking Jed to N GA to pick up a 1996 XR650L Sat. so not quite sure what time we'll get back. But more than likely will get a mid to late afternoon ride in. Not sure abut Sunday yet.

It's nice to hear from ya again, maybe we can tool around up in the Pisgah forest sometime soon.

If you are planning to ride the Char area, give us a heads up here, thanks..
someone is always riding up this way, plus about 100 motorcycles an hour went by this past Saturday on Highway 321..

Lots of HARDCORE rides everywhere...only can choose a few
I do remember you! Thanks for the info on the lift... I went and checked it out and chickened out when I saw how big it was and how messy my garage was! I might grab one next time it goes on sale though...

I'll post up next time I'm going riding. I'm out of action the next two weekends but might try and do something midweek.

Great riding with ya X-Factor. You kicked ass on FR192 with that bike. Roads were in good shape so was the weather. We left the Colletsville store at 10:30 hoping someone else would show up. This guy had some trouble


Up on a secret bald we had good clear views of Grandfather Mt.

Jamie ... looks can be deceiving.

Rob, couldn't have been a better day ... tacky roads, a fat burger at the general store and a face full of nature. Should hold me for another week.

Jagdpanzer & X-Factor, it was cool running into you guys again yesterday after bumping into you on Old 105 a few weeks ago. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you telling me about this particular thread! I'm pretty new to the whole "ADVrider" thing and was wondering how everybody knew what was going on locally with the rides. Seems like every week my usual bunch of guys say they're going to ride and then back out at the last minute and I'm stuck trying to find somebody to ride with. I try to ride every weekend, usually on Saturdays, as long as I can get at least 1 other person to go. Generally its just 2-3 of us regulars but if everybody goes it ends up being about 7-8 of us. We generally meet at my shop around 10:30-11am (or whenever the weather warms up more) if any of you guys want to join up sometime. After reading this thread it seems like that might be a little late for you guys though. My shop is on Hwy 321 at the top of the hill above Lowe's Hardware in Lenoir. (Contact info in signature below)

Judging by your earlier post it looks like you ran into the same problem with ice that we did a couple weeks ago too...


Pineola Rd. going back down from Jonas Ridge to Edgemont. We got about 2-3 miles down and it turned into a sheet of ice for about 4-5 miles!

This was right before you guys rode up and before we got swarmed by the "biker gang" of the peddling kind.
