    New to the Louisville bike scene

    Hey guys, I moved here 2 years ago from eastern PA for a job and sold my bike when we moved. Just bought an 07 r6 a few weeks back and excited to meet and join y'all on some rides! I moved here for an equipment manager position with my wife when I had to sell my old 99 zx6e and been absolutely dying without a bike. I'm happy I came across this group as its always more fun to have a community of riders to ride with. Looking forward to meeting everyone and tearing up Kentucky!

    Equipment manager is a fancy name for head mechanic at a country club, that being said I love to work on anything with wheels and an engine haha so I'm always willing to hangout and work on bikes or cars or whatever if anyone ever needs a hand. I just redid a lot on my bike when I bought it. New fork seals and oil, head bearings, brake lines, pads, rotors, wheel bearings, chain and sprockets, all new fluids, and tires. Took her out only twice since I got finished so I can't wait until this weather breaks and can really get out there!

    Welcome

    We don't just tear up Kentucky around here. We have rides into Indiana and Tennessee, plus we go to the tail of the dragon a lot as well. Check out the thread for Deals Gap Trip, should be a big group of us going down the first weekend in June.

    Howdy and welcome. There are a few Oldham County members here on the site, and one of our "standard" loops begins and ends in Crestwood. Unfortunately the weather has been shit lately, but check the site regularly as rides are posted virtually every weekend.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I too am eagerly awaiting the warm weather. Hopefully this upcoming week shouldn't be too bad, went for a ride yesterday and froze my balls off. I'd definitely love to take some longer rides up to Tennessee and deals gap (work permitting) since I work at a country club, getting time off during the summer is a bit of a task. I'm just itching to get out there though, since I finished up my bike it's been killing me to wait on the weather
