Did you go to the "Boxer Takeover" at The Dragon at Deals Gap last month?

I have only been down there once, did a midnight run up The Dragon on my bike (when I used to have one)

Now I have taken a Semi-truck down 421 ( The Rattlesnake)...not fun

I have an 06 Baja Sport solid silver. I am in North Raleigh. I saw a solid black baja this past weekend down the street and a solid silver baja a few weeks ago. I am always interested to see another one around...

mikenmel08 - Do run your baja's on any trails or offroad terrain? I have not been able to take mine off the asphalt much but would like to take it on some dirt sometime.

We do a lot of back road exploring but no rough terrain...

I understand, I've seen a handful where I'm at as well but never able to chat with the owner. Both of your Baja's look really good as well. Not sure what part of Carolina you are in, but it took me a couple years to finally find a Baja in good enough condition to buy. Had to travel 5 hours to Richmond Virginia to get it. Then had it break down 60 miles into the trip home LOL :oops: but thats a story for another time. Great to meet you!

I just took a trip out to western NC this weekend. It's been about a year and a half since I've been but boy are there Baja's everywhere I look! Boone, Blowing Rock, Linvillle, Spruce Pine and Pisgah National Forest. It is some serious Subaru country period, even in the summer. I loved every Baja a saw... 8)

Just saw a yellow headed north on 26 towards Johnson city , TN.

We just crossed into NC, headed south towards Asheville, the across to Fontana Dam. Keep your eyes open for a dark blue with a MudRat bumper.

Running the Baja on the blue ridge parkway is always fun, only run about 50-55 mph but plenty fast on winding two lane.
Hopefully I can get out in some western NC snow this year.

On a side not rode the Baja to the subie dealer the other day to see a friend. Got talking to the manager about the Baja and she wanted to get me in a crosstrek and give me 9k for the Baja as is, sight unseen. I said not interested! Back in the day I would have been interested in a quick flip for some $$, but love the Baja now. Hope to see 200k out of her. Just put new tires on her and she is smooth ever.

That's my back yard basically, give me a shout next time your in the area and we can get together....Baja's are everywhere around here but to most people I run into it is just another car to them
