    Got a specific address? I can google it and estimate the riding time. I could probably do it if it's not too far. Last weekend I went up to Cherohala skyway and tail of the dragon and was back home by around 7 pm.

    Hey Joey,
    No specific address, but Shady Valley, Tn. is on my map. It is NE of Johnson City, SE of Bristol. If you can travel that far, the "Snake" has good twisties, with great sight lines!
    Scan HWY 421, as it leaves TN towards NC. Tn. HWY 91 & Tn. HWY 133 cross at the store. I believe they count 439 curves within twelve miles of the store. Not as technical as HWY 129, but better sight lines. Also fewer people "bowling for VFR's".

    how hard would it be to start another tab under the Local Riders forum category to include smaller, more local areas of interest (like new york, norcal, socal, DFW, Las Vegas, etc areas)

    maybe if we get that set up, we can see who's where and who would be willing to participate in stuff like that, and also give people a more localized forum category in which they can start GTG threads and such.

    I managed to get together an all Ohio rider email list - combo with vfrd - 37 riders. I recently sent out. Its turning out very cool. Any more ohio riders - PM me.

    MD

    BTW My riding has been limited lately, I did something to my shoulder - its killing me. Hurts to pull the damn clutch lever. Bleah. Still do some anyhoo. To the doc...

    I guess since nobody else in the area has jumped up, I could volunteer for the Northeast Tennessee, SW VA, Western NC area.

    im wondering if there are enough VFRW riders to put something together in the DFW / north texas area. if so, id be willing to invest some time in putting some rides together (and not just an annual ride, id rather get out closer to once every month or 2)

    I wont volunteer to be a ride coordinator but I am concidering organizing a VFR Rally for the east coast riders. We've talked about it for too long and I have been offered a venue that would be awsome. I would hope to get at least 300 of you guys there. Stay tuned for more details and or get ahold of me if you would like to help. It's alot to take on but I have the support of the venue owners that would take care of alot of the food and lodging logistics. BTW sorry for my prolonged absence life got in the way.

    I'm in Western North Carolina (Asheville) area. I've organized rides with friends and coworkers and I organize a rally for my friends from an old motorcycle forum. I wouldn't mind connecting with more VFR owners and riding.

    I can be emailed at reinkster@hotmail.com - I'll try to read here more often.

    mid-week night rides LA/OC, S Ventura, NW San Diego

    I'm aware that the target audience for this is small, tiny, maybe none at all, but... If any of you grave-yarders are down for mid-week night rides, I would happily give up one Tuesday or Wednesday per month to host/lead a 2-4 hour ride in, through, and around the Santa Monica Mts and/or San Gabriel Mts. I have ventured these areas extensively and dare I say... know them better than Reggie knows SLO.:eek:
    Sound off if this is for you.

    Hello Chris. Don't know how much luck or lack of you've had toward organizing a DFW VFR get together, but I'd like to hook up with anyone in the area. I occassionally visit this website but have never posted anything. I live in Red Oak which is in extreme Northern Ellis county just off of I-35 north of Waxahachie. I usually ride with one other buddy and our usual day is 400-500 miles throughout East Texas or the Hill Country. Hope to hear back from you.

    I would be honored to be a ride organizer for eastern NY and PA. Hell at least I would have someone to ride with.

    I'm in Arcadia, just south of Winston-Salem, NC. Returning to riding after a hiatus, would love to ride with others in the central and western NC region. '96 VFR750. I'd be interested in the charity ride, but where is Charolette? I know Charlotte OK . . .

    Adam -- dittos to you - would love to get out Asheville, it's on my list of trips to take (LOVE Asheville!). Let me know if you plan on getting out to the Piedmont Triad this summer.

    Peace PD
