Hello from NC
« on: August 01, 2008, 03:17:00 pm »
Let's see, my name is Brett Hatfield and I live in Winston Salem, NC. I bought my '06 C10 last September and have ridden her almost daily since then. Love her, love to ride and looking forward to carrying my SO Amy across a good chunk of this great land on her. :) I really appreciate you guys placing next year's rally in my home state, I'm sure that it was done specifically in response to my joining the club. :) I'd like to see more rides in the SE but I know that whenever I say 'somebody should suggest that' that I'm somebody too, so I'm going to start suggesting. :)   AMA# 1019197  COG# 8229  CDA# 0267

Hi Brett!    I haven't posted much on this forum and thought I should try to check in a little more, so......    Let me be the first to Welcome you and thanks for joining COG!    I'm a member in the SE also.  Maybe next time we venture into the pretty side of the state we can gather a few SEerners together to meet!   :)    Gloria

Welcome to THIS end of the COG world, Brett!  Looks like you jumped in with both feet, and others are also finding the water is fine!  Mike B / Gig Harbor, WA

Hi Brett,     Welcome!  As you're going "across this great land", make sure you stop by Colorado so I can show you some of the wonderful mountain roads out here. (I'm still finding them myself and could spend my whole life looking for 'em just in Colorado).     Ride safe!    Mark

Welcome to the group Brett. I hope to meet you at the national. I know there is going to be some great riding and maybe you can show some of us around. I have a good friend that lives in Raleigh NC and I am hoping he can join us at the rally. Welcome again   :)  CT AAD  COG #7011-A  2003 Concours-Mary Ann  1995 Honda Nighthawk 750 wifes

Brett:    You can rent kayaks at numerous places.  Just do your research online, I'm sure you can find what you want.    hth  tcars    John  COG, ROK, & AMA
