Introduction

Hello Folks!

Just thought I'd toss in a quick note of introduction. I am in the process of getting a Honda 919 - picking it up in a couple days...

I'll be lurking around on this board and gleening information and such between rides...hehe

Located in Eastern North Carolina - long ride season and I'm semi-setup to ride most of the year from equipment kept from previous bike ownership...no newbie to riding just to this board...

Looking forward to learning, questioning, and riding the twisties really soon!!!

If it is the place I am thinking of, it is more of a custom Harley shop. I will try to check it out this evening to see what it is. The place you are talking about...is it between Clayton and Garner on Hwy. 70 ?

I think that's right Rev - near a tattoo place (I don't have one yet... ) I come up from Wilson on 42 usually to hit 70 and it's down from there a bit on the right but I'm not sure how far.

I'll post another thread on ride gear as I'm looking for a decent pair of textile pants to go with my Teknic Spider jacket...

There is a CycleGear store just right on the other side of Garner just as you are coming into Raleigh. It is to the right on Tryon Road, right off of Hwy. 70. You can actually see the store from 70.

Open 9-6 on Saturday. They have a good selection of textile and leather gear in the store.
