Question Road Island / SE Mass: HELLO?

Hey, this is Chris again, ADV Rider formerly known as 911cop until Mr. Grumpy set me straight.

This Thursday, January 12 is expected to be partly sunny and in the 50s (that's right, fifty degrees in New England in January) so I was thinking about a morning at work followed by lunch (maybe chowder and c'cakes?) and a 4-hour-'til-sunset trip to scrub in my new tires. Anyone interested in meeting up? Maybe a ride through Westport and Marion, MA? Little Compton, RI? Anybody? Hello? Beez? IILLYYAA? Mr. Grumpy?

I'm interested. But I was leaning towards taking all day Friday off to do same.

Sounds like a great time! But I'm down in Charlotte and Atlanta on business.............bummer!

You'll be going right by my house in South Dartmouth if you take all backroads............

Be extremely careful of the sand. There are areas where it is inches deep on the curves!

Is Sunday threatening to be a nice day? I'd be up for a ride if it is........

If I am around I am up for a little ride.

I live in Dartmouth after 10 years in Little Compton. I have a nice loop that is plenty of fun.

Have a great time Rob, Roy and Emoto, I hope you hook up. I'll be up in Okemo,VT this weekend skiing, but while there I'll also scope out some good routes for this spring.

Hey All

Just popping in to say hello. Wish I could be back home for the riding but the Army has other ideas. I guess I shouldn't have replied to the ad trading a R1200GS for a one year all expense paid trip around the world. This was supposd to be a lot more like 'Long Way 'Round' and a lot less like groudhog day at the beach with no water. I'll read the fine print next time.
The accessories for the 12GS are starting to find there way to my house to await the arrival of the bike, and me. Nothing like internet shopping to ease the boredom.
Good riding see y'all soon,
Thad

Thad,

Thank you for your service.

I'm always up for a ride - we're going from unseasonably warm back to winter in the next few days - from the 50's to the 20's today. Southern New England strikes again.

Check in when you're back.

Count me in on the next local loop

Great area to ride in, always looking for an excuse to get down there. Count me in next time.
