I haven't been able to attend the Charlotte dinners since they found a permanent home, I may be able to make it tonight. If I can it'll be +2.

We'd be honored to have you join us, and I say that any recent Dakar competitor who attends need not bother bringing his wallet. It's on me, including for your +2.

You can pay me back in stories of your two weeks in S.A.

Feel better dude. We'll look for you next month.

I had a great time tonight. I think there were maybe 10 of us? Special thanks to Bill and Julie for the Dakar stories. Amazing to hear a first-hand account!

It was a nice turnout....good to see everyone. I was at the wrong end of the table to hear Bill and Julie's Dakar stories.....hopefully next time. Also, its pretty wild that they had just flown in that day from 3 weeks in SA and came out to eat pizza with the local ADV crowd!

I'm sure the memories of an adventure like that will last a lifetime!

Yep - we'll need to get them to come back for sure. To hear about the adventure first hand, to see the pics from his cell phone and to hear Julie's perspective made for an amazing evening.

Hi all,

I am selling my 08 KLR650 as I have to leave the country in a week's time. I might not be able to come back to US for another 6 months. :(

PM or call or text me if you want to make an offer or have any questions.

Sorry to hear that dude! Wish you were selling a V-Strom, I'm considering buying one. Hope you can get it sold. If you need somebody to help show it to potential buyers after you leave I'd be happy to help as I'm sure others would. Best of luck!

What the Hell kind of fever did you get?!

But I'll echo what Evan said - if you need some help with this after you need to leave let us know..

Thanks guys. Will let you know if I need any help in selling it.

BTW, It's not the fever :-)
My work Visa expired and my petition for extension got rejected. Thatz why I have to leave asap.

Fun in the Mtns

I don't visit this thread much, since I don't live in Charlotte anymore. But I thought I'd mention a BRP rally in May that some of you might be interested in. It would be a great way to find out about some routes along this section of the BRP, if you don't get yourself to hungover making new friends.

I'm going. I've been three times but missed last year's. It's a hoot and really well laid out. The ride leaders have everything from crap worthy of a GNCC to leading guys from NYC on fully loaded GSA's through miles of fire roads. Last year there was even an all pavement wine tour that went to wineries.

I was going to try and come out last Thursday but I didn't get out of class until 5:30 and wanted to spend time with my wife.
