White Moutains, Mt Washignton and a flat tire ...

... and it turned out to be a very full day!!!

The plan was to go Mt Washington and back, 800km, a big day considering we'd stay off main roads but nothing unmanageable. 2 buddies joined me as the prospect of White Mountain backroads is an enticing one.

It didn't start all that well with my alarm not going off ... so we leave an hour later than planned, at 9am. No biggie. Healthy breakfast just before noon. Omelette, home made potatoes and toasts. Win.


A sight we'll witness many times, the Hyper in its natural habitat. :lol:


We take a break near this lake after some beautiful uphill sweepers ...


And soon we're back on the road ...






Yours truly in front of the camera for a change ...


I can't even remember how many times I thought to myself "whoa, this is really perfect ... temperature, weather, road, traffic, company ... everything's perfect.




Soon enough, we get to the Auto Road. You can just see the sunny skies on the bottom right ... but the nasty cloud stuck on the summit.


And soon enough, the fog is so think you can't see 50ft ahead.


We still make it to the top. It's chilly, reminds us of winter. Not cool.




The way down is nice, as it gets sunnier and warmer!


Plus, the scenery doesn't suck.


We try an unmarked road ... which turned out to be gravel.




Turns out, a 200hp beast on a SuperCorsa isn't a good idea on gravel. 1/2" gash somewhere in there.


After 4 cans of fix-o-flat and a long slow ride, we get home around 2am. Long day.

I must be mentioned we did a burnout in the middle of nowhere around midnight going for "yeah, melting rubber with seal that shit". That didn't work. Looked good though. :lol:
