NorthCarolina Looking for people to ride with - Lake Norman

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I recently moved to the lake norman area (charlotte) from CT.  I'm looking for someone(s) to go riding with.  I'd consider myself at an intermediate riding level.  I'm 33 years old and ride a 2001 KX250.

 

I'd like to hit up brushy mountain some day but would like to meet someone one there.  Riding solo isn't as fun.   Also if there's anything closer, let me know!

I have a private track in Winston at my house...14 acres , don't know if that's too far from you. About a 50 min drive. There are 3 public tracks within 25min of my house as well. I'm a vet B level. Rider. I have equipment to maintain track. Always looking for people to ride with and help out. I'm getting 20 duel axel dump truck loads of soil this week also. Looking for input for track layout as well. Edited by Yamkifour

Mike I ride a dual sport, a big red pig, you would leave me in the dust. But FYI, there is a great place about 1 1/2 hours from you. Check out the Uwharrie ORV trails. Cost $5 a day. The Uwharrie is a national forest. I plan on going up there in a couple of weeks. It just opened on April 1st.

 

Oh, I am a transplant from NY. :smirk:

Hey Yami,

 

I don't know much about track layout but it sounds like fun.  My girlfriend works in Winston and commutes there every day (even weekends).   I need her suv to transport the bike so maybe i'll drive her to work one weekend and stop by.

Hey slip,

 

Thanks for the tip.  The only issue with Uwharrie is they require a spark arrestor.  I would have to buy a new silencer w/ a spark arrestor. I'm a bit reluctant to pay for that with the amount of use the bike's been getting.  If I turned this into a once a month thing, I'd be fine with that investment!

 

Is that 650 really that slow?  I figured it would be comparable being that it's a large motor.

No, the 650 is not slow, I'm the one that is slow. :smirk: I'm not about to rip it up with the tires I have on it (Shinko 705). Just wouldn't feel safe.

I live in GSO and ride trails instead of MX but wouldn't mind possibly checking it out.  Also have a few buddies who might be interested depending on how much sharing you want to do.

Hey Zero,

Lets hit Brushy sometime my man!
You will enjoy it, lots of good riding. It is a bit steep at $20 a pop but worth it IMO.

Hah! You and about 20 other people with that description. I usually tell people what truck I'm driving and that I'm NOT riding a KTM as it helps me stick out.

LOL, I know, whatcha mean... I was looking for a Kawasaki in 08 when I got this one cuz I'm a Kawi guy but could;t find one like I wanted for the price. I'll make it a lil easier... I'll be in the camping area if there is room and I have a 94 Chevy (All red). My better half will be hanging out in the camping area and will be the photog for the trip

I'll be there on Sun with a pretty large group. Not sure what vehicle but likely a big dark blue ford pulling a trailer. I ride a red & white Husky.

      I am sad to say my 2006 450 EXC was stolen from my Atlanta apartment complex  (Northside Drive) near Gatech. Thursday at 6:09 PM.  Any information that is beneficial to my Case investigation will be rewarded. 
      The silver 2015 Nissan Altima is an accomplice that initially brought him through the security gate and tried to give the thief a ski mask.
      Thank you

      Just curious what riders will be at Brown & what your trail plans are as I may need a partner/partners for technical ST riding.

      Recently got into riding a dual sport.  Kinda fun being able to just hop on my KLX and explore for an hour or two but still have the option of running in a hare scramble or enduro just for self torture.
      Looking for other dual sport riders in the area to explore with.  I have a trailer so we could drag the bikes just outside of town, or just hit croom for a day now and then as well.
      I've run across a couple other dual sport guys in the area and none of them actually want to ride off road (??).  The other guys I've run into have bigger heavier bikes and are more into long highway rides and flat dirt roads .. that is not real fun on a 250.  A friend of mine mentioned somewhere south off 75 where people have been riding but I haven't been down there yet.
      I'm in St. Pete.

      Years ago 3 rail galvanized trailers were plentiful and I could easily find one when I needed one, but I'm having a hard time finding another used one this time.
      Anyone know where I might find a used 3 rail galvanized trailer for sale in the (west) central FL area?
      If so please PM me!
      Thanks
