Hi Monty, glad to see you've joined us. Riding in the N.C. piedmont and coastal areas is pretty good during most of the year, summer's a bit hot. The mountain's are good except in the winter where it might be warm enough or it might be snowing, storms come up fast in the higher elevations and of course at the coast as well. Overall i think that if you have to live near a city, you'll have to ride a ways to find some good peaceful asphalt. Most of our good dirt roads have been paved although i did about 50 miles of gravel at uwharrie national forest(middle part of the state) saturday and only saw 3 other people. Pretty nice. Lots of traffic here now as the yanks come south and will never leave. We do have room though for several more so feel welcome. Your roads are probably as good as ours, probably better but you'll get to ride more down here. My advice would be to invest in plenty of mesh gear as northerners occasionally melt. After a few years the heat won't bother you as much. Let us know when your coming, we'll git a pig on!! J.R.
