Loring Land Speed

A few of us at work had decided we had to go to this event, also joining in was my son home from College on his GSXR 600 and 2 inmates here.

This was going to be a Backroad slabfest, So no Knobbies on this trip.

The plan was to meet up in Gorham after work and head to the Moosehead region for an overnighter.

6 bikes 1/4 million miles...with a brand new Connie



Rte 11, Never a bad ride, perfect day.



We wanted to see as many runs as possible so we ran up to Limestone at a good pace.



Eye candy everywhere....








Old meets new.















The track 3 miles, 1.5 run .9 shutdown



Nice sunset, camping at the track.



We headed out fairly early Sunday.



Just under 800 miles.

The rest. http://2twisted.smugmug.com/Motorcyc...55579152_Nadvt

Yeah, what he said.


Got to the Hilton and nobody was home. So I parked the slab rocket...




and did what you do at times like these....


The rest of the gang showed up and we made an early night of it.... yeah, riggghhhhhht.... No photos here.

On the road bright and early. Just some goodolmainebackroads and a due north direction.




Mount Katahdan with its head in the clouds, as usual. Stunner of a day.




Sweeping around...



Hey! I think I might have pulled one off... Only took 20-30 bad pics.



This is casa Loring. That base is huge... $10 bucks to get in and sniff all the race gas you want. Walk up and talk to the riders / drivers. Everyone was friendly. Even Ricky Gadsen was shooting the shit.




This is a two stroke stuffed into a one off frame. I think it went about 67 miles per hour. Smelled good anyway.




I didn't take any pics after that. I just stumbled around and had a great time lookin and talking. This could easily become and annual pilgrimage and I'm hoping that it catches on so the big boys will keep coming. There's some serious horse power going on there.

Anyway, a quick break along the Penobscot River for the ride home.




What a day to ride in Maine! Next time we'll take the dirty bikes and find our way on cow paths!



Great ride fellas!

It was a great event

I hauled your trash you left on the runway.
I did have to leave the woodpile and tire rim though. I didn't have room for it all.

SORRY !!!!! from your pic I thought you were all together.
I was kind of suprised they left it there, It was the only trash left on the area we used for the races. I picked some up in the parking area but not very much.

Love the on/off switch on the ol' Studebaker Starliner.

No worries, we are fairly house broken.

Too bad we didn't meet up with you. Next time!
