Motorcycle Rides?

PostBy: cArNaGe On: Fri May 29, 2009 6:45 am

Anyone got any planned?

I would ride with Biggziff but he's slow, and he rides a "BMW".

Does that leave Flyer5 and Matthaus out also?

I ride almost every w/e in the fall. Usually on my KLR. Today I did a loop leaving my neck of the woods, into Belvedere, NJ for breakfast at a downtown eatery with a really cool waitress. :shock:

From there, winded our ways through Northampton, into Monroe and over to Carbon Counties. Spent a few hrs riding the little used dirt roads in Hickory Run State Park. We had three water crossing, one of which is a creek running under the PA TP overpass. Literally ride downstream for 50yds. Better keep the speed up!

Lots of twisties, air was warm and the back roads mostly void of cars. Saw one buck. I think we did about 120 miles. Last week I topped out at 160 miles with a ride into & around the Delaware Water Gap.

I use a Garman 60CSx with the City Nav map. Using this I can upload my rides into my PC, review the ride on the map and I can also overlay Google Earth into the map to see the satellite views of the ride. Really neat stuff.

Hadn't seen this.

We didn't cover as much ground as usual this year; our big trip was 1052 miles to Ontario and back over Labor Day weekend on the FJR, 2-up as usual. Did 460 miles on the way up in one day (we've come within 50 of 500 miles 3x but never broken it 2-up).

Canada has some great riding but it's D/S country, not only because of the unpaved roads but because of the sheer volume of tar-and-chip surfaces. They do a pretty good job but it's extremely hard to see where the loose gravel is, so road tires can lead to some white-knuckle situations. Strom or GS would be the ticket.

Happy riding to all.

I did a trip to CA this year too. I typically head east out of ME thru St Stephen, into NB & NS. The people & the roads are just great. I'm going back next summer for sure. I'm targeting Red Bay, NL as my goal before heading back. It'll take me six days to reach RedBay. Maybe I'll ride some of the LabTrail too.

No long ones for me this year. Just to northern CT, which is just a hop skip jump down the street. Sweet roads & not too many cops - Perfect! 8-)

Put 95% of the miles on the RD ..... the Harley is forming cobwebs. Actually thinking of possibly selling it - I actually enjoy the riding RD more! Gonna tear the motor out soon & do a crank up rebuild, get some Race Tech goodies front & rear, some new rubber & some even bigger jets :lol: (for those who've seen my other posts ;) ) plus more rewiring ... as I was left stranded on the side of the road last week - with no tools, of course. Thankfully there are still good people around these parts or I'd still be pushing! :lol:

She'll get the royal treatment this winter & be top-notch for next season. Something tells me the Harley isn't going to get ridden next year -- might be time to let her go .... got a lot of $$$ sitting there collecting dust. :gee:

We did a quick 80+ mile ride on Sunday, it was really nice, a bit overcast, but no rain. Nice back country roads....:) Around 60 degrees, it might be the last one.

Rode my buddys 2005 Yamaha FZ-1 (1000cc), WOW, that thing cranks! It will move.
