I was thinkin the same thing. I figure it'll clear down there before our local trails do. Unfortunately we're probably a week early. Heck I'm game for a road ride at this point.

I am going to ride the BMW somewhere on Sat.. I could swing by Pachaug and look at the trails.. give an update on how the snow looks.

I can't wait to get out! If the stuff I ordered comes today I'm thinking about a trip down. There's still 6"+ up here and lots of ice under it from sleds and hikers. I love snow ( I plow ) but I have had enough! I want dirt!

I never bothered studding my tires either and at this point I'm not going to, so I really hope the snow is gone in southern CT.

There will still be a layer of frost in the ground for a while after the snow goes. That makes for the worst possible conditions.

Ask Darius

What did ya order? My bike sits in the basement ready to go w/ new tires, srpockets, wheel bearings, like it has been for almost 8 months!

Trails down ON the shoreline are doable but are going to be sloppy wet with some patches. I don't know about 10 miles inland and North!

I'd like to go with you, but good ol' Renazco still has my seat - two weeks and counting. I'm sure it will be worth the wait, but these nice days are few-and-far-between lately. Enjoy the ride.

That kinda stuff...tires, sprockets, chain, oil, filters, BRP chain glide, ultra HD tubes, air filter, smith v 2, etc... I got most of it already, just waiting on the 49 tooth rear sprocket. I've got a 13/46 now, but want the 14 back up front and 49 rear will be almost the same as the 13/46 which I really like on the 610

You mean this?


I'm sure that was an isolated incident. No chance it could happen again this weekend.

If the snow up here would freeze it would be awsome for studs but the snow is so sloppy around here and there has got to be a shit load of water. Maybe early in the morning...
