Terry, often wondered if you guys ever made the trip. Glad to have stumbled onto this. Great pics and great report!

Wish I knew you were in the area (Concord). Would have been my pleasure to buy you guys a cold one.

Great reading...great photos...inspiring all of us to seek adventure into a new territory!

Time for you to be planning another trek to keep us entertained along the way.

Thanks for your fantastic ride report, looking forward to more.

Awesome RR! Bob's got that bike modded up pretty good! Sounds like he'd do it again in a heartbeat, he said (if work and family allowed). So the mighty WR proves its worth once again. Thanks Terry!
I didn't do it, you didn't see me do it, and you can't prove a thing!!

That's really cool. I live about 5 miles from the pier you were standing next to in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

It looks like you had a blast. I would love to try something like that.
