Both! Some good pavement, some bad pavement, some dirt.

River Rd. in Newton Falls is a nice ride as well. Paved with decent surface and good corners, great views along the river and not much traffic. You can jump on from Tooley Pond Rd. or take Benson Mines - Newton Falls Rd. off RT3 right by the old mines.To get back towards civilization you can take Oswegatchie-Newton Falls Rd. from the old Paper Mill at end of River Rd. and it will dump you out on Rt3 on the Harrisville side of Star Lake. From there you can hit some most excellent twisty backroads with good elevation changes as well on the other side of RT3 but last time I was over that way some of the roads were in poor shape.

Everybody should go check out the closed/abandoned 7 span steel deck bridge on Skate Creek Rd. too at least once in their lives :)


Gunny: Sorry to hear about the 4legger. I see them morning and night on my commute and get complacent. Need to slow down I guess. Here's hoping for a fast recovery.

I kicked her ass to the curb, tired of her hot-blooded Latin ways. Sent her packin as it were.

Sad to see her go...

I've been working on the TDM to go ride some twisties with you and the Duc, but alas she is gone...

I'll miss seeing that beauty on the pages here.


Aaaaannnnd is there a replacement in the works?

I don't know yet. I've got a few ideas but first I need to let the dust settle and get a better grasp on my financial picture. I may well be a KLR guy...something about living within my means.
Hard to swallow, but my days of feeding cool Euro bikes may be behind me.

I can still shoot the twisties on a TKC shod KLR well enough to surprise myself! As you well know...it ain't the hardware!
