Vermont to NC

Hey there,
I want to ride primarily back roads, but mostly direct from southern Vermont to Asheville, NC
Anybody got a .gpx file for me?
Il be on an XR with a Garmin Edge 605 and a bicycle on the back
Also need a Honda shop about 600 miles from here to get the oil changed.
If anyone can help, much appreciated

If your on an xr, why not just do the oil change yourself? I think it would save some hassle.

Yeah, I just (forgive me for sounding dumb) have to borrow a catch pan?
I haven't really traveled far before. I was always a one nighter and woods rider

Pack oil & filter. Stop at a small town garage and offer $20 if you can change your oil and borrow a pan.

Thanks for the advice
I'm going to take a short trip first down to Narragansett cause I talked with a shop down there that said the riding is doable on the mtb.
That'll get me to my oil change and then I can do it at home and then be ready to take a trip like NC and not have to bother at all.
I gotta do a shorter shake down trip with the new rack for the bike anyways to see if it's perfect. I think perfect will be to have my buddy make it out of aluminum next

Possible route

If you want a backroad route, look at the TET and TET-S threads at the top of this page.

It goes from Maine to the gulf coast in Florida, so VT to NC would be a subset of it.

It doesn't take you into Asheville, but it gets you close.

All mapped, scouted, and finalized - just need a GPS.

If you carry a filter, you can probably do your oil in a Walmart parking lot for under $20.

But knowing where the Honda shops is would be smart for if you break any parts.

You still looking for a file? I did this basic trip last year but had to take the slab from RI to Harrisburg PA but from there I have a pretty good route. Hit with with a PM and I'll see if I can shoot it to you.

Oh yeah, if I'm able to help you, or even if I'm not, I'm always looking for a source for Heady Topper.
