Saturday works for me! I've been itching like crazy to head to the mountains on the dual sport. Going to see if I can bring a friend too. We'll both be on old 350's

Well, I survived the GNCC race this weekend. Exhausted!

But the BMW forks are at the machine shop. Fingers crossed they get the work done in a few days before the weekend's ride.

XCRider803, depends on how this week at work goes and which bike I'm bringing. We'll touch base closer to the weekend.

Hmmm... so I may be the only big bike there? I don't think I'll have any knobs either, have too long of a drive home Friday evening. New guy, street tires, bring your cameras.

lol

Yeah I'll more than likely want to trailer up. I have two friends who may be interested in coming who haven't ridden with the group before, and all 3 of us have trucks. One of them has a good size trailer and an f250, so in theory could easily take 4 people/bikes, but he can't 100% commit at this point...

Either way, we should have a meeting spot for those who are riding up and those who are trailering... Sounds like it's going to be a FUN weekend

I wish I could but I can't do Saturdays. The kids have a full schedule of Lacrosse games that will have us running all over the place. Sundays are usually my riding days but honestly, this Sunday may have my attention focused on something other than the DR if all goes as planned.....

we can meet at the McDonalds off exit 103-rt 18 at 10:00. there are several places close by you can leave you vehicle. I'll be riding up from gastonia-bessmer city exit BP leaving at 9:00 to meet up at the McDonalds if some of you are riding up. let me know if that will work.

Augie-
The McD's in Lenior is an easy meet spot as well, with a huge parking lot just behind it, even a spot to back a truck up to for easy on/off. Also is a straight shot up 321 for you, but Morganton is just as well.........anyone else ridden this Table Rock Rd? I would love to check that out too.

Been hunting a scooter with a little better pavement manners than the DR, but getting the stars to line up is proving to be a bit more troublesome than I expected.....

So which one do we want to plan on meeting at for the trailer queens?

It looks to me like 18 is actually Exit 105 off I-85... (old 18 is a fun road to ride up too! )
