It was a little rainy yesterday and pretty foggy this morning, but we stayed rather dry. Trying to find gas anywhere near Becket was interesting. The Ural gets about 35 MPG, so I started to pucker a little. We headed up Route 8 and found a Cumberland Farms in Dalton. Then we looped back onto the TMT and got a chance to re-ride one of my favorite segments of the trip. There is a 90 degree, left hand, downhill turn onto Becket Rd. that was fantastic to slide the side car around!

I can't thank you guys enough for putting this route together. We're sore, tired, and a little damp, but we had such a blast!
I saw you guys Monday afternoon. I was on Silverbrook just in from RTE 57.

I was in a Silver Honda Ridgeline. Had to move over a bit so we could pass each other. I was out laying out part of the Dualsport loop for the Berkshire Triple

C'mon back for a fun time.
on one side the sign it said "Private Road", but on the other side it didn't say nothin'
