Well, I might as well jump into the fray at some point! I am also in the south Asheville area , I see that there are several ADVriders in this area . It appears to me that there needs to be a ride day designated and a meeting of the WNC ADVriders.....

Welcome Clockwatcher! I wonder if I've seen you around. I went out to the west through cherokee a month or so ago, and saw someone on a ktm eating their lunch in the casino's parking lot, right in the corner by a fence, near the road. Later that day I passed (going the opposite way) the same bike on 28, near franklin (would have been west of franklin, I think...), if I recall. It was also a pretty chilly day to, I remember there being snow on 19 between maggie and cherokee. Wazzat you?

A run over to deals gap sounds like it may be in order here.....I was having "Rt 151 Withdrawls" last sunday....

I had to get me some good deep curves, even if I didn't make it all the way up to the BRP, like I'd wanted to. It was real nice till I started gaining elevation....

So, what's the consensus here? A day ride, check. So, where to? I don't want to have to wait for the BRP to open back up....so I'm leaning towards a Deals Gap run. Lot's of fun, and a full day, but relaxed from here. Other ideas? I mean, riding in ANY direction from here is sure to lead to some seriosuly sucky riding.....

Riding This week

If anyone wants to ride anytime this week I'm free and I'll be riding every chance I get. I get back from Iowa Sunday night or Monday morning then I start work on the following Sunday.
KayaKTM and I are going to try to ride on saturday 3/19 (all are welcome) other than that I have no plans except random work around the house. Post, PM or e-mail me, I have a cell but the number will change on Monday to an 828 so I'll put it up after that.

the R.H.A.R is now in session...

Nice looking ride, lemme know when she's up to snuff and ready to ride. Hopefully between your weekend tasks we can hook up. My trouble is I work 90% of the time on weekends, so this could be a challange. My days off ("weekend") are always on weekdays, this week is tomorrow and tuesday.


Succeed? Alright, sounds good.

Hey Cameron welcome to WNC. I'm in all week this week, I don't fly out until Friday. If you want to ride give me a shout and we will go hit some pavement or dirt which ever you want.

I saw a 950 out today when I was taken my Dnepr hackster out to warm up the oil, could that have been you?

Give me a call or drop me an email, can ride Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday.

Cell 828-230-4363

It's going to be sunny and 57 on Tuesday, only a 10% chance of rain, looks like it would be a great day.
