Thanks for a nice ride to get this one outactrl. Up through the back roads of SC to pop out on 14 then circled back home thru NC. Nice new scenery, roads & towns I was sure I'd be Bruced today on this one by taking my time getting up and back!
New tag in a bit.
Congrats on the grab! That was a stock photo taken a couple of years ago. It is beautiful out there and always will be thanks to Upstate Forever!

At least you were out and riding. That's what counts!

yes outactrl that's what i'm saying. i was riding today irregardless, Upstate Tag-O-Rama just makes things a little more interesting. hope you didn't think i was carping, no way, i was riding. Got a couple of new stock tag photos for when they are needed, had a dandy (!) ride, and was able to assist some folks who needed it. all good.

If any further hints are needed, shout out. Enjoy the ride and stay safe

Sorry for stealing your thunder today Loren but kudos for helping out those in need. Many don't bother to even stop and ask. It's not about the tag, but rather the ride.

Figured it was a file tag once I got there. It is Indeed a beautiful area and it's good to know it should pretty much stay that way.

Hey, Opa!

It was nice meeting you and your bride at The Drake House today. Seeing your bike sure brought back good memories of my f650. You always remember your "first".
It has been a long time since I have been on the forum, but it looks like folks are still having a good time.
Ride safe and come up to Tryon for a ride sometime. Just drop a pm and let me know.
Cheers!
Driller

The sign pretty much gives it away, but I'm new to this.

It's actually a 2012, I will have owned it 2 weeks tomorrow. But whats the fun if you can't get it dirty? I really want some Wolfman bags for it, but that will be in the future due to trying to grow my business at the moment.
