Re: Western North Carolina Riders!
Where ya from photo? Swheels, I couldn't have said it better myself. By the way you are roughly 4-6 hours away (just a guess). As far as myself, I ride off-road, dual-sport, and used to ride sportbikes before a good friend got killed on his CBR. I am ALWAYS down for a good ride. If people were truly serious about our sport we would have a track in NC by now. I have been riding pocketbikes for about 6 years now, all the way back to the classic 910 Careena (my buddy rides that one now) and have watched 'em all come and go. I actually drove to Memphis and bought that Polini from Midsouthminimoto when they were still doing business out of their home. When I picked it up I just knew that with time this sport would be right up there with karting. I am starting to beleive otherwise as this sport is starting to fizzle. In my eyes it would truly be a waste to have so many people riding these things and not one track ever being built. If nothing else, it's a blast for all the young kids. You see pocketbikes at every Advance Auto and PepBoys, but don't dare try and ride it anywhere because you will be run off in 5 minutes. If I had the $$$ I would build a track myself, but it is gonna take pure volume of riders to really get this thing going in the South. I would hate to have to fly me AND my GRC to Florida just get out on the track.
