If you are post so we can get a group and get a cabin or two depending on the amount of people we get. Looks like a great time in the part of NC I rarely get to. pieeye you are expected to go.....BOIKE

Wish I could, sounds like fun but I've already got riding plans in WV for Labor Day the weekend before and the weekend after i'm leaving for my annual trip out to Utah. If I try to sneak off the weekend in between I think my wife might divorce me! Wait, maybe that would be a good thing!

I've put a link to the Whadahala Rally thread HERE.

I'd like to make that one - at least for a day... We'll see as the date gets a little closer.

Thanks Joe, that kind of thing is beyond my "computering" abilities.

Ride saturday went great! We got to explore a lot of trails that Ken was able to share. We left out of Lenoir and rode up around the Linville Gorge area. Ken knows all the names of the roads so hopefully he will share with us. We both took a couple pictures but I havent had a chance to look through mine to see if any of them are worth sharing. Other than the ride home that afternoon in 99 degree temps it was a great day. Hope we can do it again soon!

Ben

Huge Thanks to Mongle

You know every once in a while in this crazy world you will run across a person that is willing to give up their time, knowledge, and a little grease, to teach you how to do something correctly, that would have otherwise costed hundreds of dollars. Mongle and I changed out a front and rear sprocket, rear tire, put the chain guide back on, and the replaced the chain that was so bunched up between the front sprocket and swing arm it's amazing it didnt break something! So I owe him big time, thank you so much sir!

That being said, anyone want to ride Sunday?

Depending on timing I might be in. I'll be riding two up though if I come.

Also Saturday, if lostmarbles gets free, I am going to meet him Sat morning out at Uwharrie Forest. I'm sure he wouldn't mind others coming and getting dirty. I'm calling him tonight after I get off work to see if we can firm up plans.

Glad you got it all sorted out. Mongle is an awesome guy!

Wish I could come riding but my current bike isn't very dual-sportable.
