To heck with those straigh lines, it is the nice twisty route 8 between 28 and 9N that is the awesome road

Going to Potsdam, I wouldn't know anything about drag races on two wheels, four wheels, and tracks on a long straight on Rt. 56 south of Colton. No, surely I would not.

No idea...got any?

We could wander around here...or maybe try to capture the Adirondack Tag (Mayfield). Not sure if I'm up to a lit of road droning, but if somebody else chimes in and wants to do it, then we certainly could.

Otherwise it's the usual...dirt roads to Harrisville or something.

haven't really thought about it. I was set on doing something else today, but saw your post, and changed my mind. its nice out and haven't really had the bike out yet.

Tug Hill, Lewis county, or a really long ride to try and grab the dirt tag.

Dang...they're both a little far away. I wasn't really planning on anything that "epic"...it's early in the season!

On the other hand...WTF? I'll go wherever. Gotta break me in on riding this KLR some distance and learn what she can do.

I'm mid barn project here, otherwise I'd saddle up one and head over that way.

Have a good one!

yeah its a long ride down there. on the plus side I know the truck trails to the east of the tag a little. some good roads . if we head down I suggest 12 down to waterville, then back roads from there.

or maybe stay closer to home and hit 46 corners. Have you been through there yet?

Naw, this season I haven't been anywhere. Small rides close to home. That's why I was kind of thinking "epic"...
