Bye Bye Michigan

Hows everyone doing? Just an update from me. I recently took a Quality Engineer position in the beautiful state of Tennessee. The roads out here are made for bikes. There is not a straight road around. Twisties as far as the eye can see. If anyone gets board there, you are welcome to come down. I am in Greeneville, TN which is about an hour east of Gatlinburg. There are a ctually quite a few bikers out here. No doubt, the roads are sweet. It is kinda hard to have a lot of fun in a car unless it has a low center of gravity but it's wonderful. My cell number is going to change so I will post my new one. Peace!

Ken

Hey Ken!

Well best of luck to you in Tennessee! I know the job market here sucks. Maybe we'll see you in one of our summer trips. It was good meeting you and hanging out with you.

Back again

Hey all! Sorry for the delay in responding. Work is kicking my butt. I am working for TI Automotive. Same place Kyle got me into. I am now a Quality Engineer. What a job. I guess Engineers do work hard Chuck. I am told I am about 1 hr from the Tail of the Dragon. Bulls Gap is close too. I am finally back on the road. Just bought a 92 Ninja. It needs some work but it runs solid. It is going to be my winter project. Not much in xtras yet, just a Yoshimura tail pipe so far. 8500 miles on it. The guy I bought it from was afraid of it so it sat for 5 years. The deals are good here. Hopefully I can hook up with you guys on the trips out here. All will be missed. I am being told that there are days here and there through out the winter that you can ride. Peace out for now. Here is a pic of the bike.

Thanks Chris. Good to hear from you. Today is my first day to get back up. I got the plate yesterday and gave the bike a once over last night. It is going to be 70 today and 75 tomorrow and clear as a bell. I'll be down there sometime this summer. Ill have to watch the calender and maybe join you all for a ride.

Kyle,
It is funny how life works out sometimes. Everything is great here. You done with all your schooling? You are welcome here when you can get away. After being passed by you on the HWY like I was standing still, I figured i would give the Ninja a try. I'll let you know how it goes Celly update 423-329-1556. This is my new perment number. Peace brothers, see ya'll soon.
