Howdy!You may see my BRG Sprint up in NE Ala on occasion....I do some business in Ft. Payne and ride out when I can. You have good access to some nice roads up that way....I take 64/74 thru NC when I come out and then Hwy 35 into Ft Payne.

Enjoy and you will get lots of good info here! Also you have the Irish's down towards Birmingham, if I recall correctly.

Welcome!

My wife and I are moving to your area in a few weeks. We will be working in Huntsville. Are you aware of any Triumph riding groups there?

Enjoy your Triumph!

Sorry,I don't know of any groups man. I'm looking forward to going to Brits in the blue ridge to check out some triumphs that are fairly close to home.

Rob, that is being held the weekend we are moving. We won't be able to attend. How long of a ride to you expect that to be?

I actually accidentally came upon this once, about fifteen years ago. I was camping near there and was riding around Lake Hiawassee. It was a great event! Just walking around the campground and drooling over everybody's motorcycles was worth the trip.

Enjoy!

Cool,I haven't been able to get much info on it so I guess I'll just head up and check it out. Hope you like Huntsville when you get down this way,make sure you ride out around Guntersville park there are plenty of good roads to ride around.Lookout mountain has a lot of good scenic riding too.

Thank you very much! I will be sure to ride there.

Do you know of any motorcycle friendly pubs or coffee shops where riders go to mingle?

I am very excited about being that close to Barber Motorsports Park.

I currently ride a Speed Triple (black, of course, they go faster) and my wife and I are looking at either a Storm or Roadster for some two up cruising.

You will enjoy the GABMA Annual! Meeting the people and seeing the bikes is great, and that is just one beautiful area to ride in. Maybe I can join you next year.

Cheers!

Sign up here, great site, and great rides. Know some good roads round the Huntsville area, maybe a ride when you get settled in.
