Re: Any folks from South Carolina here?

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.

Re: Any folks from South Carolina here?

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.

Also look for SC and NC State Parks.

...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).

PM answered

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.
