Yup, that's it! You get the award. Checked the atlas, and it's still on there. Had to put something on the map to fill the space between the metropolises of Engelhard and Swanquarter. Interestingly, the county population hasn't changed much in 30+ years; still around 5,000.

Coats is near Raleigh?

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Before relocating to NC, I lived in Long Island, NY. I used to ride mopeds with the eventual hope of getting a motorcycle and an outdoor cat. After looking at the traffic situation, I realized that both were a bad idea unless I wanted either smooshed me or kitty.

Within a year of moving to NC, I got a bike and a stray kitty came inside and currently is sleeping beside me while I am on the computer.

NC is great for riding and outdoor kitties. Where I am, once if I ride 1/4 mile in any direction except south - there's nobody and lots of windy twisty roads. . .

I was through that area a few weeks ago heading towards the outer banks for a weekend trip. Coats is about 30 miles south of Raleigh, NC.

In eastern NC, your former residence is called Big Washington, as opposed to "Little Washington" which is west of Hyde County.

I live within rifle range of Asheville, NC. I got a twinstar I ride back and forth to work a lot. Its a 1982 model and I try and keep it in decent shape. Other than back and forth to work I ride it on errands and on the Blue ridge parkway that is a couple miles away from the house.

I grew up in Gwinnett! Lilburn in fact, residing in Savannah now. Anyone want to get together hit me up with an IM - I'm only 1 month into riding and could use some pointers!

Lived in Gwinnett (Snellville) for four years. Worked a summer in Port Wentworth, not far from Savannah..

If you haven't taken the MSF basic rider's course, do so. Lot's of great info and techniques there. Get the book Proficient Motorcycling by David Hugh (I've got an extra copy if you are interested). Read it. A few months later, read it again. Tons of info there, too much to absorb the first time through. Do an internet search for motorcycle safety tips and study them. You can always learn from good, more experienced, riders. You can also learn what not to do by studing the bad riders you come across (saw one today). When riding, always anticipate that others aren't going to see you, and have an escape plan in mind for when it happens, because IT WILL HAPPEN! After you've ridden for a year or so, take the MSF experienced rider's course.
