riders

I am new to the area, moved here with the military/government. I live in Brunswick, GA and have a F800GS and am looking for a good group of people to ride with, people that take care of each other and help each other out. It sounds like you guys have a great time, and I would like the opportunity to learn more about your group. Brunswick is about an hour north of Jax, surrounded by great dirt/sand roads and tree farms. Can someone send me some info?

Thanks
Steve

Happy Birthday to her! Sounds like we may have a future rider in your little one. Teach her well and ride safe.

Thanks. We'll be learning together. I have limited street experience and zero off road experience. I wanted something we could do together and dance and soccer was out.

You'll still be dancing. You'll be doing the two wheel dirt dance! Much more fun than the foxtrot. Is your bike going to be a dual sport type (still street legal) or a off road dirt bike? If you get a dual sport you can join us for our upcoming basic dual sport riding class.

DS ride clinic update

Hi CADS Riders,

I hope to see a lot of smiling faces with bugs in their teeth (that's how you tell if someone is a happy biker-if you don't know the joke) tonight at the meeting. Danny has informed me that the date of 2-27-10 for the clinic is a definite date. So set it in your calender. The meet-up location will be determined in the next week or so.

Danny has also stated that those that are interested must sign-up at the meeting. He'll be at each meeting this month to gather a list. As many as want can sign up, but the class will be limited to fifteen riders. If registration exceeds fifteen, he'll hold an additional class for those.

Hope to see you tonight.
Dean

Yes it will be a dual sport. I'm looking at one this evening and if its everything he has told me and shown me in pics will be coming home with me this evening. I'm looking at a XR 70 or Kawasaki 110 for my daughter.

Another great turn out for the meeting. Thanks Ego for bringing Joon to meet everybody Joon as many know is on his round the World trip from Korea east...He just flew in from London. Looking for some help...Joon needs some racks built ASAP to hold some bags. I will see if I can get some made for him, through a buddy of mine...
