I need to do a few seats just for practice before I start charging for real, so the cost to you would be minimal or none. I was thinking a 2 tone seat, blue and black. Black on the sides where your legs rub, and blue up the middle. Of course it's up to you. You certainly don't have to take me up on it, and there's no rush. I'm sure the fabric will sit there for a while. I could also do blue and pink, just saying.
You know me so well. I HATE the black seat. My first order of business is to get the thing running well. Then the seat. So I'm open to your idea. And it'd be blue & yellow, not black & blue ('cos no drops!).

I'll be in touch as I have the stock seat (the one you see in the pics is the old owner's Renazo which is too hard for the lightweight me). There is a part of me that wants to honor Elsa by doing some pink.

I'll say this. The TE is rE-TAHR-ed. Love, love, love this thing. And who doesn't love something unpronounceable.

I know there are more dirt roads than this shows, but It was posted somewhere in this forum and I saved the link.

jgormley, the Trips, and I talked about this a few year ago...the TRIT. We probably have 2/3s of it done. We're lacking at the very top of the state (in B'ville up to the MA line) and in the southwest area. I know Rhode trip had ideas for that area (I'm thinking Charlestown east into CT). I'm never down there and only know Carolina Management Area, and I'm not sure they're even accessible to motor vehicles.

I think that's the area we need to concentrate on. We've got B'ville south to Exeter covered really well.

Unless we want to have the "trans" of Rhode Island be from the Pachaug/Voluntown area up through Exeter/West Greenwich and then north.

The Google Map link includes connecting tarmac roads; it's not all dirt. I had a grand dream of making a map of the state, and this is all I got to, and that was a few years ago. I wouldn't use it, and it's my own map.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

What I'd really like to do is have one/several GPX files and route sheets. My thing with route sheets is I don't do the mileage, just the directions because I can't be bothered. But if folks want to help out, we could do it properly.

It'd be a fun fall project.

Yeah, what I had been working on was from Blue Shutters Beach to George Washington Mgt Area. From Hopkinton City south is not much dirt except for a short stretch and the sugar sand of the beach road. My idea was to camp at Burlingame on a Friday night and then ride all day camping Saturday night at Geo Washington.
I think we could do a main route with optional hero sections.
