Knxville, TN Area

Hey Folks,
I know of three of us in the area with V Stroms. Myself, a guy I work with, and Steve (tennmoto). Is there anyone else in the Knoxville area that might be interested in getting together for rides. I do some riding at night so time of day is not an issue. Any bikes welcome.
Steve has also mentioned having a saturday morning breakfast before the ride. Anyone interested post here or PM.

I live near Appalachain Museum, I would love to ride with some other v-stroms. I own a 05 650. Bought at the end of Aug, just past 4000 miles this week. My schedule is a little hit and miss.

I just bought the 1000 and am in the Dandrige area with a commute back to Oak Ridge. Still less than 1000 miles on the strom so still breaking it in. There are several local riders groups and stores in the area with web sites that list rides so that may help. Always interesting to see what others have done to the bike and why. 8)

PM me too if you don't mind.

Maybe I passed by one of ya'll, yesterday evening on 321. Looked like a DL with no screen....I waved! Me and my buddy got down there Wed afternoon....then rode another 300+ miles that day. We left this morning, and I got back home about 3 pm. That was the most fun 4 days of riding that I have EVER had!!! I will argue with anyone, who thinks that there is better riding, elsewhere in the U.S.A. We rode the Dragon 3 times, and many other roads and routes. We rode the skyway, the parkways, the foothills...etc!!!! WOW, WOW, WOW. I feel like I rode the Dragon pretty good....man my buddy can ride his Gold Wing! His family has a house, just off 321....what an awesome location! The Strom ran PERFECT...and I got ALLOT of thumbs up from sportbike riders, when they heard my Leo Vince exhausts cranking out the RPM's. The worst mileage I got was 44 mpg.....I got 50 mpg on the way down, and 51 mpg on the way home. I was running between 75 and 80 mph on the interstates, and flogging the piss out of her in the twisties. :wink: I can't figure out why some people are getting such crappy gas mileage! :shock:

Big B, Two of us were out the night of the 25th riding on 321. So if it was that night it may have been us. But seems like I passed a Black DL1000 on friday when I was out that way again in my wifes vehicle. I am glad you enjoyed the riding in our little area of the world. Give us a shout next time you are down this way.

SmkyMtnVStrom, I work a 9 - 80 schedule. Off on Saturday and Sundays, with every other Friday off, and the next friday off is June 9th.

I plan on taking time off to go to the Hoot this year, is anyone else going? 8)

There has been talk about going between me and one of the guys I work with but nothing in stone yet. I am off the 20, 21, 22, 24 so I imagine I will be going a time or two. As far as the weekend of the 9th I am working the 9th and have to go to Memphis and help a friend move some stuff back here. I have thought of riding some this sunday if interested PM me.
