    I rode a little over 110 miles on Sunday.. had to temporarily assemble my new bags , and mount them to the bike (for lights/turn signals)...
    Didn't get started till 9:45 and rode till 4:00. Our group was (3) VTX 1300's, (2) Honda Shadows, and a Harley.
    Didn't get any pics, except for the bike...

    Maybe all us NC guys should do a ride this summer. Get together somewhere that we all can agree on and have a nice day of riding. Just a thought...

    I've always wanted to ride Murphy to manteo... I've done it in my truck but I think it would be way better on the bike obviously!!! US64 all the way, would probably take 2-3 days.... just an idea....

    I'd be all in for that!
    We've discussed hosting a tech-meet at my shop in Kernersville, NC. Cueballblaster and I have worked on several local VTX'ers bikes, doing everything from fork rebuilds, steering bearings, shock bushings and even body and paint work. I have a fully equipped shop with 2 bike stands, bike jacks, and about any tool usually needed.
    We also get together and ride very often whenever the weather cooperates. There are some great roads in our area, with interesting places to stop (restaurants, The BRP, winerys, etc).
    There are about 7 "local" VTX-riders that regularly attend our rides. Some come from as far as Charlotte and even southern Virginia.... for day-trips. IronMk even came down from Ohio and we rode him hard all day!!!

    I'd be happy to set something up. Perhaps mid-April?

    I'd be interested in taking the ride from Statesville to your place. Love to learn about these bikes, gets some help in understanding some of the maintenance type things, help wrench (I'm a decent mechanic, this is just my first bike so I'm very cautious until I understand these things). I bought my bike at the Honda shop in W-S. Guy who sold it to me is a friend of the family, and a long time VTX dude. You probably know of whom I speak.

    Thanks man!

    I've got the lid-pivot system done, working on a latch-system. Trying to design a latch that I can adapt a door-lock solenoid to open.
    Once that's done, I'll finish the bodywork and paint...
