What's up everybody?? Finally decided to join up on this forum too... some may recognize me from other forums as I'm on quite a few

Anyways, quick intro... my name is Jared, I live in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina just outside of Asheville. Been riding for just over 5 years now, and I currently ride a black/red '04 CBR 600 F4i, which I absolutely love to death! Unfortunately it's been down since Dec 17th due to a 25 mph lowside, and my engine suffered an early demise in the fiasco. But I'm working on that and should be back on the road in about 2 weeks or so :thumb:

A few pics from before the crash.... she was at 177,428 miles when I went down. Both from my cross country ride last year, Atlanta, GA to Tucson, AZ and back in 7 days

:welcome:to the .Org ! Some great scenery and the bike is looking awesome for the mileage. When you get her back in one piece post up some pics, or even start a re-build thread:thumb:

Thanks guys!! :thumb:

Progress on the bike is coming along very well.... should be back in one piece and back in the road within 2 weeks, possibly sooner! Believe me there will be a massive rebuild thread posted, with more pictures than you could ever imagine, hahah. I doubt anyone would believe the lengths I went to to keep my engine as original as possible to get it running again as I did, so I took lots of pictures for photo evidence, lol

:welcome: to the forum Jared. Been riding down your way several times. Usually stay in Bryson City and run the whole area including the Blue Ridge and Cherohola. Of course we do Deals Gap and many other places.

Enjoy the Forum!

The next time you are down you should hit up some of us locals and let us show you some of our hidden secrets. Would love to have any of you down any time.

Thanks and I will keep that in mind although we have been riding more in the South East corner of Ohio the last few years. Found some great roads (not quite as good as yours) and only 4 hrs away instead of 11 hrs for us.

Planning on riding wed and thurs not sure what your schedule looks like during the week i usually get most of my riding in on weekdays
Cool.... well my bike is still in pieces undergoing a massive rebuild from a wreck back in Dec (25 mph lowside at the McDowell-Biltmore Ave fork = cracked engine case and bent crankshaft..... loooooong story I'll tell you all about it when we meet up). It probably won't be ready for about a week or so.... waiting on my new headgasket, airbox, fairing stay, and left fairing to arrive in the mail. Then I can put the engine back in and get her all back together again

Still though if you want to meet up and grab some lunch or something in the meantime, give me a ring. I lost my job last tuesday so I've got pretty much nothing going on in the meantime

Sounds good to me, if you are still needing some parts you should check out quick time in greenville the are a full service salvage yard with and amazing supply of parts.
