Just bought a GL1500 Aspencade and can't wait to ride US 321 from Hampton (TN) - Sugar Grove (NC).

Welcome to the club.. My wife and I rode with our daughters in NC and SC and loved it out there.. Great place to be riding a bike (At least during the summer!!).

Returned to Fl. from Ohio in June and spent two (2) days in Johnson City. Thinking about relocating up there next year and wanted to check out the apts. Jim's is a little expensive for repairs but I guess all dealers are. Had to get a bulb replaced and I didn't have the proper tools with me. Liked the area but am a little concerned about storing the bike during the winter. I will not have a garage like down here in S.W. Fl. so the bike will have to live outside under a cover.
