    Hey Brett,

    There certainly are many good rides here in South Carolina. Twisties along the Blue Ridge Escarpment, flats in the low country.

    Also many sights to see: waterfalls, mountain views, lakes, historic buildings, antique collections, picturesque downtowns, museums, even a satellite tracking station.

    I am an older newbie on a Kawasaki Ninja 650R, riding about 18 months now, ~10,000 miles.

    I enjoy riding to some destination, seeing what is there, and riding on. Mostly day trips.

    I have started a blog detailing some of these rides, with more to come: Bucky's Ride

    Y'all come over east from California!

    Yeah! What Sydney said!
    I'm considering moving down that way, so pics please! In fact I've been looking in the Greenville area.

    I know there are some riders from Athens, GA. Not exactly close, but much closer than CA.

    You might want to look up R5_350 (http://pashnit.com/forum/member.php?u=181). He's reasonably active here and is back east.

    Howdy stickman,
    Just sent you a PM asking for must-see-sites in your area. Three of us are riding cross-country to there on May 20th. Thanks.

    I'd look in North Georgia, Western NC/SC, and eastern TN. In GA, look up 60, 180, 52, 17/75, 348. In NC, 129 (the Dragon) and the Cherohola Skyway.

    ...and my blog: http://buckysride.blogspot.com/

    There is a very large population of motorcycle riders of all types, slow, fast, cruisers, sportbike, scooter, touring.

    Many meet up at the Holly Springs Country Store at the intersection of SC-11 and US-178 (north of the red star right at the "t" in Sunset, SC on the map).

    The roads Needles mentions ans the sites listed by Bucky are what I would suggest as well. Route 11 in northeastern SC is a great road from beginning to end.
