Looking for riders in Hampton Roads area

I just got my big V and I am looking for some locals to go ride with. Anybody out there? I am in Hampton.

I'm in Newport News. A Club I belong to is riding tomorrow for a charity event to support a guy's family. He died and now his daughter is stuck with the bills.

We are meeting at the H-D Shop in Yorktown and will ride up to Toano and back down on the Glouchester side and stop for lunch.

Any time y'all don't mind riding with a KLR, lets set something up!

Do you do any camping? I do some local stuff but I'm more into longer rides and camping.

Have a trip coming up 8-10 Aug in WV.

I feel like such a dork. I posted this thread then got called out of town for a couple weeks and forgot all about it.

Roger, I am not really set up for the long rides yet but hope to be sometime in the near future.

CPTD, if I had not had my head up my *ss that would have been a fun ride for me to go on. Please catch me on the next one. KLR and all

Vstrom134, you got some nice country around Williamsburg. Hows the riding?

I will be keeping an eye on the thread this time.

Cheers

Hi all,

Just got here about two weeks ago. Haven't had a chance to get the bike out to ride around here yet. Kind of want to learn the area first, ya know? I've been looking at the maps for a good place where there wouldn't be a lot of traffic. Was looking at the southern area of the Navy base south of VA Beach. Looks like there aren't any real roads, but some trails. Any suggestions? Oh, I'm in Newport News.

When I go for day rides I usually head down into NC or head west towards the Petersburg area. There are several smaller/nicer roads in those areas. I've only been on afew dirt roads in NC but I'd like to find some more.

I usually just spend some time on Mapsource and string together some small country roads, not many twisties or mountains around here but you can put together a pretty nice ride if you have a GPS.

There's also some smaller roads around the northern penninisula.

next weekend, being a long one, would be great. Any idea where to go? I haven't ridden since I got here, so somewhere out of the way/less traffic would be great.
