New Guy from Salem

Hey everyone. Just moved back to my hometown of Salem, Va after serving 5 years in the Army. I have a white 2003 Lightning and a green 1989 F-150 4x4. The Lightning will be gone soon to make room for another motorcycle. My Lightning has all of the usual bolt-ons for this truck. Its lowered, exhaust w/ x-pipe and 2 Dynomax Bullet mufflers, 4 pound lower blower pulley, AEM cold air intake, and a Hi-Po Valve body. Its best run was a 12.8 in the 1/4 last summer while I was stationed at Ft. Bragg, N.C. . My 4x4 has a 4 inch Pro-comp lift with 33x12.50 tires. I also enjoy riding 4-wheelers and have a '00 Bombardier DS650. It has a HMF slip-on exhaust, jet kit, K&N air filter, and -1 tooth on the front sprocket. Looking forward to chatting with everyone and hopefully getting a chance to meet a few of you around town.

Welcome!

I might have a buyer for you on that Lightning. How soon are you looking to sell it? The guy is from Vinton.

Welcome! Im in Roanoke, county. I also ride a Raptor 700. There are a couple great trail systems not too far away. Perfect for a day of riding.

We definately need to have a Roanoke/SML get together soon!

I dunno exactly when I plan on selling it. I think it has a burnt valve on the #3 cylinder due to a bad tune that was too lean on the top end. I need to fix that first.

I'm always up for riding in a new place so give me a holler sometime. Ever been to Wagon Wheel, WV? I ride with a few guys who ride 2 Raptor 660s, a Z400, and a new KFX450. We all went up there in January. Other then it being cold as hell we had a blast. We're planning on trying to head up there again next month. If you all plan on a Roanoke Valley GTG then definitly give me a holler.

Nope...never been to the WV trails. Almost all of my riding buddies have been, but they either forget to call me, or I've been busy.

I've been trying to get some friends together to go to Eagle Rock sometime this spring. I'll give ya a shout if we decide on a date...

Yea we hope to make it up that weekend. Acouple of the guys have their quads torn down right now trying to make some last minute mods before we go. If its a definite then I'll give you a holler on here before we head up so I'll know what you ride and who to look for.

Will do and I'll be on a yellow Bombardier DS650 (seriously doubt there will be too many DS650s up there) riding with 2 blue 660s, a white Z400, and a black KFX450R.

Hey SVT...did you guys go that weekend? We did. Aside from all the dust, it was AWESOME! There were 23 fourwheelers in our group the first day, and I was the only 2wd sport quad. I had fun spanking thoes utes (when we wern't in the creeks or the mud). On Sunday, we had a smaller group of around 10 or so, and someone on a Z400 showed up, so I wasn't the loner that day.

No I didn't get a chance to go. It sounds like you had a blast. Dang I want to go back up there bad. Hell I'd even like to ride my DS somewhere local. I haven't even had a chance to ride my 4 wheeler in the past 3-4 weeks. Been working alot during the week and then on the weekends I have to catch up on the house/yard work I couldn't get done during the week. Maybe I can hook up with you guys the next time ya'll head up that ways.
