Dragon's Lair Big Bike Riders

I ride a VStrom 650 and like to ride gravel / forest service / 2-track. I'm interested in creating a monthly group ride. I've been leading group rides on another forum that is all but dead in this region.

Is there any interest here for big bike group rides?

I would think lots of interest. I know I love to ride gravel and some forest service roads but I have to go slow and be careful because right now I am down to one bike and it is a Road King 811lbs. If I went off the side and down a hill I would have to have a tow truck. When I get the proper bike I will be ready to do this anytime.

I only have one bike as well. I'm looking at getting another bike for single-track. But until then I'd like to ride with other big bike riders. When I say big bike I mean large dual-purpose ( think that is the marketing term used these days ). VStroms, GS's, et al.

I wouldn't call the roads I ride technical and I don't ride fast ( at least not on the VStrom ).

I'd like to tag along. F800GS.
My schedule varies. So sometimes I'm free on weekends, other times during the week.

I look forward to riding with you.

I don't currently have a group ride scheduled, but I'll work on that will post a group ride invite in this subforum. I'll also post a link in this thread so that you'll know about it.
