Take it from me guys, YOU DO NEED TO DO A YEARLY GATHERING!!! We get at least 2 here in Fl., 1 in the spring (Spring Fling) and 1 in the fall (The Feast) and its a blast. I`d say hit one up in Hickory or something in the fall to catch the changing colors of the leaves. I`d try to catch that one if I can.

as long as the location i'm working on works out i'm hoping the shop will be opening around october so a grand opening ride would be perfect timing.

there looks to be alot of us that are all within an hour or two of each other so theres no reason a semi regular ride couldn't be pulled off...ken....

Re: North Carolina Riders

OK, so there's a few who are able to get close to Salisbury. Downtown is decent for some simple cruising. We have a Farmer's market on S. Main that is covered, that would be a cool place to have a meet. There's plenty of fast food type restaurants plus of course BBQ and some decent local spots.

JTinNC, I have a buddy that lives in Salisbury off of Mooresville Road near Jake Alexander.  Are you near there.  I usually make it a weekend visit when we hang.  Maybe we can all get up at some point?

Dude just send me a PM when you plan on coming to town, we can hit the Salty Caper for some pizza and beers.

Re: North Carolina Riders

How about something like the middle of October?  The 16th is a Saturday.  Any other suggestions for a time?  What place?  Maybe we could do a big ride in one city and kind of travel around to new cities for major rides and maybe pick a middle ground for a simple get together ride.

Re: North Carolina Riders

I would say come to Charlotte but it seems you guys are are more centrally located up north a little ways.

I'm trying to think of something that could coincide with a bike ride that would make it more interesting to come here.

I don't know how big a factor food and booze is.

We have plenty of that. big_smile

Re: North Carolina Riders

i'm trying to get an events schedule for Oktoberfest here in hickory. between fall scenery, that, and hopefully a shop grand opening that should pull a day together. the bands at oktoberfest here typically suck(though Junior Brown did play in '08) but if you drink enough you can get past that haha...ken....

Re: North Carolina Riders

oh and after 2 weeks of waiting for her to get the inspectors in the land lord of the building i was trying to get informed me yesterday they are in negotiations with someone who may be buying the building:rolleyes: and they don't want to rent it until they see how the sale is going to go. sucks but whatever and maybe the new owner will not be a cheapass and will do the work needed themselves. on the flipside i spent about half the day today driving around looking for alternate locations. foud a few possible leads. the heat got me and my car('67 vw squareback) beat and we headed home to cool down. gonna spend a few more hours at it tomorrow...ken...

what's up Johnny, I am hoping to to do a lot of traveling next summer as far as racing and riding goes. I finally got to the track this year and my son loves it. He is training everynight to get his legs stronger so I think we are going to let him race a couple times before the season finishes out and then next year hit it hard. Are yall ABA or NBL up there?
