Couple of Comments

I noticed you're thinking of taking NY Route 8 through part of the Adirondacks. I was on that route today and there are signs indicating that the road will be under reconstruction starting May 18th,...

I'm in, especially since it's so close. I'll probably drive home at the end of the day though. And...I'll be avoiding the mud route, since my XT-225 is my main mode of transportation in the summer. ...

Sevey Corners Store

I saw that article today, I was kind of surprised. I was out that way maybe a month ago and didn't see any change. I always thought it was a good location, nice to know I can get gas without...

Yesterday I was getting my bike serviced at my local motorcycle shop, I checked out a few Urals. There was one that I was interested in (a 2013 Gear-Up I believe), and I asked the sales guy to start...

Cedar River Flow

I spent the weekend up in the Moose River Plains area, rode in on my XT225. We camped at the Wakely dam area. It was nice and cool and the roads weren't too dusty.

Jimmy, what are the dimensions of the box? My dog looks about the same size, she weighs 78 pounds. I was thinking long term that I'd get a Ural, but simply adding a box to my top rack would be a...

The video is very cool. I was surprised at how smooth the walls were and also how the floor was in such good shape, though I did see some fallen roof debris. How long ago was it mined?

Whiteface Road Work

For those folks planning a trip up the Whiteface Memorial Highway this summer, the road will be under reconstruction. The road work isn't to be completed until late 2015.

Moose River Plains

I've been trying to get the No Motorcycles regulation changed, and as others have pointed out, it's frustrating. The Forest Rangers on either end are both riders, and understand the frustration. ...

Thanks, I should have realized they would be the same size! I'll try my local hardware store first, because they'll definitely be less expensive than our local Napa store.

Battery Cover Screw

Probably Spruce

It looks like Spruce, since that tower is missing the bottom landings. I was there a month or so ago, there is a gate, but there is a trail going around the gate.

Taconic

I'd vote for the Taconic Parkway, there's very little traffic and it is scenic. Usually some Troopers, so watch your speed.
