Don't worry another Trooper got me two days after I got my new truck! Going from a 2006 diesel with 225,000 miles on it to a brand new hemi, well, it rides like a caddy and takes off like a sports car, so don't worry the State got their money out of me this month!

You just wait, your day will come!

Question Ride to vermont. Who is in?

Ok Sam and I are going to Vermont leaving Friday the 8th of July. I have to hit Max BMW along the way for service then we will be leaving there and taking the short ride to Southern Vermont. We will ride around perhaps do
Some of the puppy dog trail and be home Sunday night.

So, who is in? I know some of you may just want to go to Max and the head home, that's fine, some of you may need to catch up with us on Sat. We can make a time and place for the late comers to meet up with us.

Bring tents. and do the sun dance!

You guys are livin' large... I never get to take any cool rides like that

I did get a chance to check out a new-to-me dirt road last night, in the 40 minutes I had between getting out of work and taking my daughter to play tennis. And guess what I found in the middle of the woods? An old motorboat, maybe 15'. Apparently someone wanted to get rid of the boat and keep the trailer, so they hauled it up in the woods and shoved it off.

I'm gonna have to go back up and snap a pic. Maybe make it the NYS Dirty tag someday?

So are you & Sam still headed there to do some demo rides, or are you going to focus on heading to VT for your trail rides? We're on vacation next week and are hoping to fit in a couple of rides when we take a break from our landscaping projects, so I was considering riding out to Max's with you. What time are you anticipate leaving the Rome area?

Doesn't feel right, another season without a tug-hill ride.

I might, MIGHT, manage to sneak out over the long weekend.

I've been out twice this year so far... way too little riding.

As soon as these stock tires are toast and replaced with something usable I'll post up a hill ride Dave. Have to skip Tuggers though. Wife and I had a rather unpleasant experience there and I'm not going back. I'm sure we can find someplace else for a burger and beer!

Heck, I'd settle for a crumbled granola bar and a swig of warm water beside the trail if it means we get to ride.
