Welcome to the Forum Rockie......I am from Central Kentucky here, I had the pleasure of meeting Joe and Marcia while they were here in Berea. As a matter of fact, my family had the honor of adopting their German Shepherd 'Major', just before they left to head west. They are a great couple that loves travelling and riding their bikes. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

Chuck and all
Thanks for the warm welcome to this new guy...
As to the Tour de Pisgah-I don't know yet; am supposed to be on a trip to upstate NY then but if something happens to that well then yeah I will try to make it...or maybe swing by there on the way. Only thing is I will be on a Valkyrie with my SO and dont know if Honda's are allowed.

You can take the honda, it is on the BRP so there will be plenty of GREAT riding for any type bike. Don't forget the camera, the mind can't contain all the beauty there.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
