Howdy from SW Virginia!

Finally getting around to saying hey to y'all. Been reading this forum since the 1st week that had my new 919 home....helps to pass the time at work when I'd rather be riding.

Started riding when I was about 12 on an old Suzuki T125. I've had several bikes over the years but my 919 has risen to the top of the list, second only to my beloved Triumph, which I hope to have back on the street next year.

Thanks for all the great info that I've been able to find here so far! Y'all ain't doing much to help me fight the mod-bug that I've always had, either.

I love SW VA! I'm familiar with the Roanoke/Blacksburg area. Where are you?

I'm in Christiansburg...right beside B'burg. Moved here in '86 from WV and been here ever since.

Lots of good riding in this area, what with the twisties of Giles, Craig and Floyd counties and the Parkway so close.

My brother was in Craig Co., in Catawba, backing up to the National Forest areas. It's beautiful there.
Don't let these guys over-mod your bike! They will tempt, tempt, tempt you.

did you ever hop a train to roanoke? lol we'd hop on in pembroke by the river and ride up to the yards and hitch home...that's just how redneck we were

loved riding down that way, used to take old 460 back to this farm lane and then up and over the mtn...near where a. murphy crashed his plane

that's great country down there, riding, w/w kayaking, hikin....man i miss that place...welcome to WT
