Still haven't gotten it..I think to many people focus on being tricky and clever instead of just riding.

If it aint dog simple I aint gonna find it. I just have no interweb searching skills...and no I don't want lessons

Trust me. You get here and you'll have focused on riding.

It's about as far southwest in Mass as yer gonna ride and stay above the I-90 bound. Actually, there is one other road but I liked this spot better for some reason.

And no. It's not Gerry Rafferty's home town (or maybe it is... ) but it is Baker Street.

Can't help you with the map. You'll have to do that on your own. Try Google Maps Do yourself a favor and find the secondary roads. Good stuff out in that part of the state.


Hope you're feeling better.

Feeling much better...Now I just need to get a bike back on the road.

The KLR is still down with-out a shock and the DL is....

ATGATT - including gloves. Flip up helmet is usefull as well.










When I mounted it on this KLR (the one farkle that came off the old one) I angled it a bit more so the exhaust was harder to get. Still have to be careful. And, no, it isn't actually used while riding, folks.

Go grab the tag whizzerwheel!

Nice job, Mike. The initial clue was a bit obscure, but knowing what interstate that was was the kicker.


Fantastic riding out that way. As good as anything within the bounds of the game.



Now, who's going to go get it?

Why not you??? We both figgered it out, but I've had enough riding for a few days (mostly in the area, and enjoyed every mile!).

Nice ToR thread! I know where this is and would love to get it and hit the twisties out on Route 2 on the way out or back.

However, unless I call in sick tomorrow there's no way I can cover those miles during my morning commute.

Hmm, I feel a fever coming on.

They got a good 3G signal out there?

You'll feel better if you do.

Yeah, but an 8 hour ride would put me in too good a mood for the next day when I should appear all sullen and tired. . .

Too true!


No love for me in the forseeable future, between Mr. Mom duties and my work schedule.

Hmmmm,,, I guess I should have looked at this when EC suggested it in the MA TOR the other day. I went right over that bridge while moving the tag. Going out of town in the morning for a few days ......
