Darn,thought you had grabbed it for a minute there...Maybe I'll get time to do a ride report by next week. Mt Washington is a windy place as I understand. I am going back to NB in the spring I hope, maybe late May and prob will include the Mt. This time I will prob take the northern tour of NB and also include Prince E Island. So many places I want to go! Heck, Tiger is just getting broken in good and should have a lot of miles yet. I have 34K on the GS after about two years of riding it and may be cranking that rate up a lot in the next few years. Gas tank too small is only thing I dont like...180 mile range can be a pain when you are traveling in places where there are few gas stations and what there is only has regular...

What's the current tag?
My available riding time may have just increased dramatically...

I'm surprised this is still standing. I figured that someone from the Nottarally would have snagged it. I'd bet good money that someone from that group rode right past this at least once this weekend.

I led a ride through there and at least one other ride passed this and nobody wanted to grab it...

Hm. Maybe we should punt it way north. We have the file tags.
