Looking for some Sportbike riders to ride with!
« on: January 21, 2012, 04:01:31 pm »
Hey guys, Ive been a member of ETN Bikers for a little while now.  Ive tried a few times to organize some rides in the upcoming rides sections with the disclaimer that I ride at an above average yet responsible pace but havent ever gotten much of a response.  I bit about myself:  I ride a Triumph Sprint ST and a Suzuki Katana 750 and pretty much keep to the back roads.  I live about 20 minutes from the hill so I frequent it but love to go down into western NC or northern GA.  I belong to a riding group but we dont ride a lot as a group so just looking for some other like minded riders out there that like to ride hard and have a good time ;).  Anyone??

I am in when I can. :21 there are several of us with the same mind set here. :21 Although this time of year is hard to make it to the hill. I love the hill but salt being laid down makes me stay away until after good hard rain and temps above 60. Not that I am a fair weather riding by all means. but for some reason I can't go there without "playing" :34


Although I would love to get together and ride some of the Western NC roads that I hear alot about. I really want to get with some people like you, Mariad, and the IrideWeaternNC guy and check out some of those great roads around there and north Georgia.
My days off are Wed, Sat, & Sun

Bear with us till warmer weather and unsalted roads.  I generally park it this time of year unless its over 45f and clean rds.  Unfortunately thats usually just afer a rain comes thru..

Once good weather gets here you can find me on the hill Sat n Sun every few weeks, Once summer gets here I go up n play at nite w/ zero traffic and no LEO.

Yeah I can go on weekdays, its just limited.  I didnt realize how hard it would be to find people to ride in the winter when I bought all this damn heated gear! :angry.  I feel like I have to ride to get my money's worth. :21

I would definitely be interested. My schedule is pretty free and with a little notice I could do it almost any time. Just wanting to wait a little for it to warm up ;)

I am planning to ride over to the Gap Thursday, it is the opening day of the store and it is supposed to be warm. I drove over the hill in my car Thursday on my way to Murphy, NC and the rain had washed off the salt so if they haven't re-salted it it should be in pretty good shape. I might even scout it today. I am not a knee dragger but i ride pretty fast, my skill lever is not there yet but i am working on it.
if you post a ride I'll try to make it, might be the rear guard but that is OK with me.

I will be back from Atlanta Wednesday night. If the weather is still looking good I might be into that. Give me a rough idea of your route.
I am battling a bum knee right now, it causes me to have to stop more often than normal (30-40 min and I have to stretch it out for a 5-10 min) if that would drive you crazy let me know, we'll wait til I'm in better shape.

oh, and you might be waiting for me from time to time, I'm no knee dragger. I like to go fast but still working on my cornering line and in and out speeds.

I try and find peeps around my area as well but seems to be too many "squids" and kids that just ride stupid? Also seems like quite a few members on here live outta knox so that makes it hard on me,too.I DID have a guy that i used to ride all over with but i had an situation last summer with my bike being stolen and word was goin around that peeps were wonderin if he had something to do with it so when i asked him about it,he pretty much gave me the finger and said he was off to find "real" friends,so,i ride solo again? Always lookin' to meet and ride with new peeps if and when available?Holla!
