It's an easy one to find I'll probably be too late if I wait till after dinner.
Glenn - you should be fine if you wait till after dinner...you are definitely the closest...unless one of those other "t'aints" has the jump on you. The point of the game is to tag interesting places, or places fun or interesting to ride to (the main point being enjoy the ride) You ride to the "tag" take a pic of your bike in front of it, then post the pic to the thread. If you are the first to do so then you have the "grab", and get to place the new tag. There are a multitude of different tag games. The rules of this one are on the first page of the thread but suffice it to say that if you keep it on a legal road (street or dirt) and it is in NC, then you are generally good to go. Have fun!

Here's a thread about the FSRs in NC. You all should read it and think about attending the meeting. We need to be a part in helping the Forest Service folks decide what to do. I'm hoping we can become their "solution".

Hi Fancy, not sure which way you guys will be going, but if you have any questions at all, about the area North of Laurel Springs, From HWY 113 to Shady Valley Tn., I'd be glad to help.

Darn! I wish I could, but we're heading down to Alabama for Easter/Spring Break. Find us some good stuff for May. Let us know what you find....So, I'll know whether to buy mud tires or rock tires!

Are you looking at single track that's too tight for a 990? Or just right?

I may can join ya.

Wanna meet at my house in the manana? Gimme a call! We will be on 4 fiddys, but weren't planning on anything too tight for a 990 - hell, you know more roads to lead the ride at the RDV anyway! Show me some roads Daniel!!!

(all I can hear in my head is...be careful what you wish for)

Ha ha... It won't be that bad. Just close your eyes and think happy thoughts....

I lost all my contacts and don't know where "my house" is.... Lol

Give me a time and place in Elkin and we will go from there. :)

Anytime. I enjoyed it, although the tag team effort failed miserably. lol

Just try and remember everywhere we went so you can "Lead" us back there.

FZ6- Offroad edition

Special thanks to State Farm Auto Insurance! New bike is here!

I am the proud new owner of a 2006 yamaha FZ6-OE (offroad edition). From now on, I can be found rev-ing my engine at stop lights and going fast in a straight line.

HA.

First impression: fast as shit.
Second impression: fast as shit.
Third impression: This is so much fun on gravel.

So far it has done great everywhere I have driven it, including some gravel up around Vashiti/Wilkesboro (Gilreath road and such)- As far as I am concerned, it is just another dual sport, just with bald tires and kinda low ground clearance.

Anybody riding? Can we get a weekly meet up going again? Maybe something on Sat or Sun mornings?

I am taking the GMAT this saturday morning, but I will be free in the afternoon if anyone is up for some riding-

Reply back or PM me if your are interested-

I have recently been enrolled to find a weekend getaway location....

Would like something within an hr or so of Statesville area.

Would prefer it to have a scenic view and possibly a waterfall...

Price is anything from minimum to $100k..
