Northern New England chatter...

In the NH TOR thread, we talked about a new forum just for gossip, snide comments, announcements or just about anything to do with riding in the region that's NOT Tag-O-Rama related.

Maine already has an active Maine Riders thread, and I hope this one becomes as busy as theirs. I was originally going to start separate NH and VT threads, but there was a comment that VT might not have the population to support a state thread, and another one that some Mass. riders have an interest in what happens up north. So I'm kicking this off as a single thread, focused on Northern New England, but open to all, including Mainahs that want to cross the border!

So, bring it on. We'll leave the TOR threads to those 'elitist pricks' (of which I'm proud to be a member!)

Where you going?

My rear ice tire is still laying on the machine after our 'session' last night. What a suck fest. I'm no mechanic but I'm pretty sure when you attempt to fix a flat all the air should stay in the tire - at least until you get it on the bike. It layed there for a moment then "Pfffftt...." Felt like the kid who just popped his tire pumping it up. Last tube of course...

Don't ask.



Picked up a couple more tubes late before throwing in the towel. Shoulda just kept running it flat.

Maybe later today. Found a great spot for quiet pipes.

Please invite them to hang out here. New England and New Brunswick have only one word and a river between them.
