from CT to VT,NH,ME almost 1200 miles on 4th of July weekend
My head is still spinning from all that riding so instead of writing a report I will like to share some pics and few comments.
Well we decided to go for a short ride during the 4th of July weekend, nothing planned - just simply ride north.
weapons of choice?
2002 Kawasaki ZZR 1200 - johnny rocket
1999 Bmw R1100R _ Wrathchild
2003 Bmw R1150 GSA _ me ( Jerry )
cameras used: canon powershot
and nikon d200
departure friday morning 7:30am
we took I91 through Mass. and hit the back roads once in NH.
on the way to mt. Washington,
there was a young moose drinking water by the side of the road, so naturally people had to stop in the middle of our lane to take pictures of this very unusual phenomena
quick rest on main parking lot
and decision was made, we are going in!!! or up,
it was my first time going up the mountain so it was interesting, specially with my fear of heights
like I said
once on top we meet one more ADV rider, from CT cool dude with awesome bike
it was very windy that day
always favorite posing "STIG" style
after this awesome (for me ) adventure we found this kick ass motel just few miles from mt. Washintgon
the price was right and owners are great people
BBQ set-up out back, we meet this cool couple from England just traveling around NH for few weeks,
after nice BBQ dinner, we spent some time by the fire drinking beer and talking about ---- motorcycle traveling
and that it was time to hit the sack, does pink make me look fat?
nice ride to Errol NH, ( the road is almost fixed now)
quick rest while we were there
and after we took right turn into Maine, where we had to pass alot of Harley Riders, not that there is anything wrong with that
the views were amazing
and I think we hit some kind of space-time vortex
so we got heck out of Maine and back in NH. and to make things right again we sacrificed wendy's baked potato to motorcycling God's
two more ADV'rs showed up, a very nice couple from Maine,
and after nice lunch we took off to VT, where we stayed at this awesome Irish Motel with bar and live music, good times, good times
riding from side to side in VT crosing or getting on rt 100
very nice riding , specially rt 14 and rt 17 .
some random photos from that day
this is view of Rt17 after very cool twisties
rest time in one of Vt's towns
floating bridge was closed
and favorite game of the day, "chasing Johnny through VT "
it was a shoulder burning, monkey butt, wrist cramping one heck of a ride
that still puts smile on my face
sorry for my speling folks, and its my first report so its kinda dry.
I have more pics if you like to see
thanks for your time and I hope you like it
