Hi, I am new to the Strom forum. I've had my DL650 for 4 months now. Absolutely love it. Would like to meet other troopers in the area for some ridding!

Welcome,

I might be trying to put a ride together late in August or early September. There are quite a few 'Stroms in the area as you've probably noticed.

I live in Charlotte, but I have family in the Asheville area. I am looking for an opportunity to do a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. If something gets set up count me in. I've had my wee for 3 weeks and love it.

Let me know what kind of riding y'all would like to do and I'll see what I can finagle over the next couple of weeks.

Glad to show my fellow Tarheel 'Troopers around the mountains.

hi rileyspiller,

If you are free on weekends let me know. Weather permitting I will be ridding around this weekend. Perhaps we can put something together. We'll see who else joins.

I got a hall pass for 8/16. Could put some paved twisties together on short notice. I'll leave the 50/50 dirt /pavement to Norm, he knows the dirt roads roads better. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Sounds great, I'd love to get together for a ride! This weekend doesn't work for me as I'll be up in Raleigh as a support rider for a big cycling event. But the next weekend should be free!

I'd love to see some of the beautiful views this beautiful area has to offer. Coming from the mid-west I'm not used to these maintains.

Yea we need to start riding more together. Right now I ride with abunch of harley guys cause that is all that I work with. I work 12 hr swings so my schedule is a little messed up. I am working this weekend but am off the next two. Can anyone do a mid week ride. B/c that is when I am most likely to ride. Weekends are usually spent with the family. Let me know tho and I might be able to slip away for a half a day or something.

Johndre,

There's plenty of interest on my part.

Just not much time, gotta make hay while the sun shines.

Anyways, it was great to meet you and Riley tonight.

I thought that was you passing me on I-240, but it was yet another 'Strom, this place is lousy with them.

I'll be in touch.

It was great to meet you guys too... we'll have to do some more riding. I really enjoyed that. Seems like there are some great guys in the area.

Norm is great tour guide, btw. Seems to know this area really well!

I didn't get any good pics, but here's the couple I snapped:
