anyone in the charlotte area? i would like to get some of the kawi guys and gals together to do some riding. i think it would also be great to start up a little club of all of us in the area. if anyone is interested let me know. i ride all year round, even rode today in the rain.

I would be interested- I don't have the bike I want yet, but maybe in a few weeks. Regardless, let me know if something is going on. I live close to Carowinds, although I wouldn't mind to meet up wherever.

I would love to.

There is a Carolina Riders Forum (and a section for Charlotte), they get together a lot for rides. I may join them this Sunday, if I can get my mom to watch the kids. It's supposed to be 61 degrees on Sunday, hopefully it won't rain.

i technically cant ride because i had to turn in my tag until feb 18th due to a lapse in insurance coverage for under a couple hours... but i have an old tag from a bike i sold so i will ride anyway.

anyone going to the vtwin show this weekend? im going alone cause friends have to work, meet up and check out the sites?

call me,

well i think the local forum sucks, nothing but negative comments so far. most of the people ride a street bike maybe thats it. only person on there posted a welcome comment was ninja_Wendy.

Sorry about that. I JUST joined. I had no clue that some of those guys can be d1cks like that. I actually got a PM from someone who is a little more civil so I think there may be a few nice people on there that maybe don't post as often. <<Edited>>. That is one thing I love about this Kawi site, that type of behavior is not tolerated or at the very least it is ignored and not encouraged.

We will just have to get together from this group. I am not prejudiced about what kind of bikes anyone rides or what tires they run :)

dave you are probably thinking of the right forum. it is mostly street bikes.

but like ninja said they are a feel people that might be ok on there. i am about to become a moderator on the forum. how funny is that.

There is a local group on meetup.com that seems great. I've never met up with them but they seem very welcoming. I exchanged a few emails with someone I met during the Keith Larson Charity ride. They meet a lot and I've never seen anything negative. They seem to mostly ride cruisers but they appear to be a good mix of people. If you aren't too jilted from Carolina Riders, setup an account on meetup.com and check out: SWNC Piedmont & Surrounding Areas Motorcycle Meetup Group

Meetup.com is free to join and attend meetups but the people who startup and moderate groups have to pay. I think it is $12 or $15 a month and that is why you don't see a lot of new groups forming.

I actually got a PM from someone who is a little more civil so I think there may be a few nice people on there that maybe don't post as often. That guy Benson is, ahem, how shall I put this, "interesting". From what I understand, he doesn't even ride, he comes to some of the meetups in his truck Some of his comments are very inappropriate. That is one thing I love about this Kawi site, that type of behavior is not tolerated or at the very least it is ignored and not encouraged.
