Sand Mountain, AL

Howdy- Sold my victory and bought a DL650 in April. All my old Southern Cruiser riding buddies have dried up and blown away. I wouldn't mind having someone to ride with sometimes. Anybody local?
We've been here 9+ years from SoCal. I've been riding for 40 some years.

Wife and myself spent two days in Fort Payne about a month ago and rode Little River Canyon, went to Desoto Falls, Cloudland Canyon and to Rock City. Nice area to ride in.

Thanks, I've been to Barber a couple of times and could always go back.
Headed to Tannehill state Park next weekend for a blacksmith conference -- my other addiction.

I just purchased a 2013 vstrom... I am in Cleveland, TN. Not far from you. Would enjoy doing a ride once I get the title (about 30 days out). Guy I bought it from has a lien and TN won't do a temp tag on a motorcycle. I have been riding off and on since 18 and now 42.. Confessed motorcycle addict though!!! Look foward to meeting you.

Sounds good
I bought mine in Chatt at White's Cycle & Marine. AL wouldn't title the bike without it being there at the courthouse and the dealer didn't want to turn loose of the bike until I had a title. The dealer finally saw the light -- well enough to let me take it home.
