I just looked outside and noticed how great it was outside today. Definate riding weather! If I only had my bike back from it's winter make-over. Well I was actualy forced to do so. My front fender got caught by the top lip of a ramp and it was bent up pretty bad. Anyhoo...

I hope i didn't step on any toes by making this thread. I just thought it would be nice to have a centralized location for us NC/SC people. A good place to chat on the happenings here in our area.

Im located in Matthews NC and once my ride is back at my doorstep.. I'm always up for a ride. I hope others in this area find this thread usefull.

I hope to have my scoot back in a couple of weeks (I pray anyway). Being without your scoot is worse than not owning one at all. :( . Lot of good road out here waiting to be thumped. I'd be up for a ride any day after i get her back. Count me in!

I got three good trips planned this year. God willing they go through. I plan on going to Daytona, Myrtle and Sturgis. Anyone here interested in any of these? We could meet up for them too. :)

I found a local guy who chromes. I'm getting ready to take a few items to him to see how his work pans out. He seems to work mostly on industrial equipment. Well.. thats what his shop looks like. From talking to him, I think he will be relatively cheap. Not sure on his quality, so i'm giving him some test pieces (unknowingly to him). I'll let you guys know how it works out.

There is a Patriot Guard mission this Saturday. Near Ashville. I plan to go, Anybody interested let me know. We can meet up and ride together.

More information on the Patriot Guard Website.


From the NC Captain for Patriot Guard

The service will be held at the Trinity Baptist Church in Asheville on this Saturday the 21st at 2pm. Another memorial service will be held on Monday the 23rd, in Arlington National Cemetery. More detailed info to follow. We need someone in western North Carolina to take the lead "Road Captain" for this ride. I'll contact the VA State Captain for the Arlington service. Please email me if you're in the area and can assist.

Thank you,
Bill "NverOld"
NC State Captain

I like the idea of this thread for ongoing general conversations. I PM'd Straydog to see if he will make it a sticky.

I still think that for special/specific communications that we make a new thread that begins with "NC/SC". That way we can more easily follow the conversation of the specific topic.

Is this OK with everyone?

I've been keeping up with the chatter on the NC/SC threads, so I thought I'd jump in here and say howdy to everybody. It's good to see a thread with local folks doing the talking.

Welcome Joe! You live in a beautiful area of the state! My cousins grew up in Andrews back in the 70s and early 80s. Love the Nantahala River!!

Maybe we can organize a ride over into your area once it gets a little warmer!

I'm in Southern Pines and look forward to riding with ya'll some. I split time between sport biking on my Buell and cruising on the Springer. I'm riding the Springer to Daytona. Anybody else riding down? I'm leaving early Friday a.m. on the 9th and returning Monday the 12th.

I took the trip to Ashville for the Patriot Guard ride today. Only four bikes showed up. Bad morning for riding, the first 80 miles was in rain. Then the rain let up and turned out to be a pretty decent day. Road about 350 miles total. Can't complain about the weather. It's almost the end of January and I 'm riding. Cleaning the bike now. I'm not a wash and polish nut on my bike, but it is in sad shape from the rain. Bucket of water, soap, wax, polish, and beer. I'm ready.

I can't wait for Spring~!Awesome!

Bwee! we're stickied!! Thanx jockeyshift!

Jonas, I almost borrowed my buddys bike for the "Patriot Ride" since mine is in "the shop". When I woke up, it was raining pretty good. We'll get up next time hopefully. :D

I'm glad some of us are pretty far apart from eachother. It will make for some good riding this coming season. Hopefully we'll all have a chance to meet eachother and ride. I'm wanting to put some serious miles on my bike this year. So far.. i've got three trips planned. Florida, Myrtle and NY. God willing.. i'll make it to all three of them.

Cheers Everyone!

Sheriff... Thanks for the welcome
I wish Bear Creek was near the Nantahala River, one of my favorite places, but unfortunately it ain't. It's about half way between Charlotte and Raleigh. Don't matter though, I'm still up for some ridin'.

Sprung... Man you're just down the road a bit. I got my bike from Sandhills HD. Is your springer a classic or softail? I've got a riding buddy that's got a softail springer. Nice riding bike.

Hope to meet ya'll on the road someday..

Joe

Wow...there are two Bear Creeks in North Carolina! The Bear Creek I was talking about is sorta half way between Andrews and Robbinsville. Oh well, maybe we can get together sometime and visit the "other" Bear Creek!!

Welcome aboard/thread! It appears that we will be having some very good local rides organized here in VTF. We have already had our first NC/SC VTF ride and im sure the next isnt very far away. Watch the thread for any upcoming rides.
