Hi All.

Name's Russ, from Asheboro, North Carolina. I'm 44, divorced, and finally free of the support payments. :)

Actually I've been reading here for quite some time, but being new to the net, I'm sure yall will be understanding if (when!) I screw it up.

I have an '03 800B that I found new at a dealer going out of business- .03 miles. Didn't even ride or sit on it! Just bought it! That was April '03, and since then I've done 6600+ miles. Took the MSF course last May, because like some others, I'd ridden as a teen and young adult, but marriage, child & lack of money put the brakes on for a while. But now I'm back on 2 wheels, and life seems complete again! :D

Hi there Russ! Yeah,i know where you're at. I come up to Carraway Speedway a bunch during racing season. Don't stay to far from ya (about 30 miles). Little town south of you down 220 to 211,go east to a little town called West End...I came up to the big toy ride back in Dec. where we all met at the mall there in Ashboro. About 1200 bikes there that day! Maybe we can get together some and ride! E-mail at [email protected] and we're talk about it. See ya, Kenny in North Carolina......

Thanks all for the warm reception. Actually brian, West End is an unusual place in that there is alcohol there at all. Many places here in central NC are still dry, and most that aren't don't sell on Sundays. Asheboro, where I live, has the distinction of being the largest city in NC that allows NO alcohol sales of any kind. I don't agree with it, and judging from the beer bottles in my yard every weekend (from kids in cars, I own trashcans) it doesn't curb consumption anyway.

Oh yeah. And the golf. West end has a couple of good golf courses.
