    Hey everyone it's been quite a while since I've been on line. Just kind of laying low for a few reasons, but I'm still around and looking to move out of Texas and back to Tenn, around the Knoxville area. I'm looking for any family members that might live back in that area that might have some tips on the area and anything of insterest that I might need to know like.....what is the best side of town to move to, close to shopping, etc. I already know that Tenn is a helmet state, and althrough I perfer not to wear a helmet I will learn to adjust. I also know the handgun carry laws and will adjust to that as well. Seems like jobs are somewhat scarce back there, but what jobs there are pay more than Texas.

    Anyway....Merry Christmas and a Happy and safe New Year to you all

    "I already know that Tenn is a helmet state, and although I prefer not to wear a helmet I will learn to adjust."

    Join your local Tennessee A.B.A.T.E. chapter, help to eliminate the helmet issue and make riding friends at the same time. :-)

    It's not only affordable, it's BEAUTIFUL...from about May to the end of October. Then you can prolly expect to get the bike cover out, for the most part. It's awesome ridin' up there, tho, so have FUN with that. Good hunting on the job front and let us know how it all shakes out...

    S.E. of Maryville is pretty nice country. Easy access to amenities as well as escape from the maddening crowd.

    Good luck to you Dragon. Nice area down there, but remember, they do have winter. Especially in the Knoxville area.
