Newbie from Bama

Hi, Gary here from North Alabama. 59 years old and enjoying life.
I love tent camping as well as a cabin now and then. I go to the Kickstand Lodge in Stecoah, NC and plan to return to Two Wheels of Suches GA again this year. Love both camps.
Backroads and service roads are my goal.
Just picked up a 04 V-Strom 1000 in NC and on the way home with it now.
I have a 2012 Goldwing for travels with the wife and look forward to putting some solo miles on the 1000.
I tried the KLR, too much vibration for an old man. Sold a 08 Versys 650 last year that I regretted, but was ready to step up to the 1000 anyway.
I look forward to making new friends with some of you. It seems nearly all my riding buddies of the past few years have just quit riding. Time for some new buds.
Thanks for allowing me to join and let the adventures begin.

Welcome Gary.........another Bama Boy.......!!!! (Good)
How about meeting/greeting 90 "other" vstrom owners in 4 weeks, just 1/2 mile from the Kickstand Campground??

Suches is having a Vintage Gathering this same weekend, I'm sure some of us may ride down there Saturday for the day, then return back to the IH Lodge for nighttime festivities!!
Another great event last May 2018......already planning it for 2019!!

Thanks for the invite, but I will be in Orlando that weekend. Sounds like a blast though.
