I live in NC but I can only answer #1 as I don't live in Durham and i'm not originally from NC. VIR should be relatively close...maybe an hour or so. Road Atlanta and a few more are nearby. Depends on what you consider "the area". how far are you willing to travel? Maybe try yahoo maps to get a decent estimate

Thanks

I'm thinking of maybe relocating to either va or nc....and as bikes are a big part of my life...want to make sure there are a few decent tracks with-in a couple of hours drive...never been to either of these states before.
Also as I'm currently in cali @ the moment and a move back to the uk fell thru early in the year...I'm looking for somewhere with a long riding season...and maybe a state that is good for motorcycles!..
Thanks for any replys...steve

Talking

I am from North Carolina and I can tell you there are alot of roads all over the state that are fun to ride. I rode all year round when I last lived there. I did have a couple of cold days but I just bundled up and rode anyway. The crime rate in all of North Carolina has to be way lower than L.A. There are a couple of tracks within a couple of hours drive,V.I.R, C.M.P. in S.C. and last but not least, there is Deals Gap. Better than any race track and way more fun to ride. If I were you , I would definately visit that place. 318 curves in 11 miles. Can't beat it!

Is it Fast?
