how are the turns here in boone?!? they're perfect this time of year...i love paving season...the ncdot has started laying some fresh tracks (somehow reminds me of fresh powder in the winter!) on what i would consider some of the best all around roads in the area! that is if you can keep your eyes on the road! i was riding 221 on the backside of grandfather mtn and almost lost it looking at the view. let me know if you're ever up & we'll ride!

I miss NC. I really do. I used to live in Raleigh and worked all over the state. If there was one state I could retire in it would be in the NC mountians.

I'm a little further south... Columbia, SC here. Just got my 9er a couple of weeks ago. Damn, I love this bike! I'd love to meet up with some other 919 owners. Maybe a get together sometime?

My buddy and I are going up to the Gap on the weekend of the 22nd of September. Maybe then? Hell, sooner would be good too if we can find a decently central spot.

Arrow Attention!!

Hey all you Carolina types! (North and South) I know it's a little short notice, but this weekend is supposed to be somewhat nice. Anyone interested in meeting up for a ride or just meeting up in general to get to know one another? Saturday? Sunday? Just something short, half a day perhaps...?

Asheville perhaps? Tomvan, Ajcombs, Clearcreek, Kristen, Goonanc, Ridge, 919Rev, Reese919, Nick? Anyone I'm forgetting?

Reply here and with PM if interested....

I wish I could make this but Asheville is about 5.5 hours from here (eastern NC).

Wow this sucks! Finally get a chance to get together and meet/ride with some of you guys and I am on call. Kahuna, I would love to get in on this, but I just can't this weekend. Funny thing is I will actually be fairly close to you tomorrow. We are going to my sister's house in Indian Trail for Thanksgiving.

I hope it works out for some of you to get together, and please don't forget me for the next one!!

I know you guys brought this back up to talk about getting together to ride, but this is the first time I've seen the thread so being from NC, I'm posting up.

In Granite Falls here - about an hour from Charlotte and about 45 minutes from Boone.

Perfect location

Yeah, I'm Nick over there as well. I know Big T, Prez, and Dustin (can't remember what his screen name is right now) from that forum, and I've heard the rest are a decent bunch. I talked to Tony (Big T) earlier today, and I'll probably just meet him at his house in Concord and follow him to the meeting place.

If it was just me I would do it, but I am caging it with the whole family...wife, son, even my Dad is riding with us. I don't have anything to haul the bike on, so unless I pile the whole gang on the tank I am out of luck.

Well, if you feel like saying hi, call or text and I'll see where I am and shoot over. I will probably be out in between 10am and 2pm-ish.
