I'm in the Charlotte, NC area. Looking for local riders

for shorter (day) trips.

Got 4 dogs and live by myself so I can only be out on day trips.

Just bought a V Strom so if anyone wants to ride, hit me up.
I work out of my house so I can pretty much go anytime.

George

You should meet up with them for a dinner first:

(Since the thread is still active, I'm assuming they still meet)

Or for a good excuse for day rides, check out the NC tag, NCNC tag, or any of the regional wildcard tags etc. :)

Good luck.

If your interested...I'm in a club (the Knobbies) that meets and rides on Sundays from Morganton. We mainly do touring-styled riding, but we have a dually side to. We have some guys come from Charlotte, one from York, to Statesville, Asheville, Winston, etc. Some come every week. To a lunch stop and back, we'll cover 200-300 miles of twisties. Older group...50s-60s, I'm the youngest active at 37. Good pace riding as a whole, however, if there is a good number for two groups, we'll split up and the faster group will go a little harder. All-year riding too. We got us one of those there fandangled websites too...www.Knobbies.org with all the info. Come on up if you get the chance.

No kidding. I almost got sweaty leaving the house today and I found a skeeter in my bathroom yesterday.

Skeeters love me and I hate them. I guess it's what they call a love/hate relationship and I am NOT looking
forward to the summer :(

Cool part is that I don't have any motorcycle gear/clothes yet but with this weather, I'll be ok riding my bike
with some regular clothes
