Welcome!  Dave Scott (Sport Rider) is your local Assistant Area Director. We got our biggest regional rally (Run With the Wolf) coming up next month in Suches, GA. If you can make it, it's a great way to meet a bunch of Southeast COG members!  Rally HQ will be at Two Wheels of Suches. It's a campground for motorcycles only. Check the calendar or here on the forum for more info.

No one is a TOTAL failure; they can always be used as a bad example.

Welcome!  look for my email blast to north carolina members the first of each month.  we have a monthly RTE/get-together, but it's in Asheboro and might be a bit long of a ride for you to join us.  if you want to dip your toe in the waters of attending rallies, there are two of them coming up that will be close to you.  first is Run With The Wolf as Jim mentioned, which is September 7-10 in Suches GA.  the other is at Hungry Mother state park in western VA.  it's September 21-24 if I remember correctly.  Check the events view at the top right of the page to confirm dates.

Look forward to meeting sometime!
