Charlotte area

Seems like every time I log on there is someone else from this area getting a V-Strom.
We should meet up some time this spring for a local ride or do a mountain meet and greet. (or even get together at the Eastern Gathering)
What y'all think?

That is exactly what I'm talkin about!
Should we plan a long route or just book it to Deals Gap?

I want to stay off the highways until its broke in, no long droning on the slab, with this crazy weather and work schedules I have had the bike over a month and only have 500 miles on it. That is sacrelige for me. It should be over 2k by now.

Can't hardly blame you for that the way the weather has been.

I just wanted to introduce myself as a new Union County v-strom rider. If you guys ever do some weekend riding and don't mind another in the pack let me know. I recently left my VTX 1300 and have exactly 3 miles on my new DL1000. Looking forward to getting out there!

Regards,
Mike

I'm at hwy 84 and Rocky River Rd. I'm sure we can plan a ride soon.

We just got home from the mountains. I didn't expect to ride on Satudray due to the forcast but the weather was good and we were able to find our way to Deals Gap for lunch. Not many bikes were there but there were a few sports cars. Had a great ride and saw a silver Strom on hwy 28 on our way there. Here are some pics.
