One possible ride could be to move the " Southern New England TOR with a twist". It's currently in Rochester MA, near New Bedford. I'm also open to suggestions. NYC is only 2 hours from my house and there a lot of things there on my list to see, such as the 9/11 memorial. The weather looks calm and sunny too. Any ride will be good.

I have that tire (brand new) sitting in my garage along with the matching front. Did you ever try a Karoo in front? I'm not sure I will like it.


I have been using a Kenda TrackMaster II in the rear and a Bridgestone ED-03 in front on my DR650 and like that combo. Both DOT aggressive knobbies. I have the Pirelli XCHM on the front of my KTM. DOT also and a very good tire.

The "moving the tag" idea? I thought so, because it would leave us with an unknown factor when we go to set the new one. I'll come up with two or three possible options for the new one and see how we feel Sunday. Of course we will have to consider eating lunch somewhere, if anyone has any suggestions for that, I'm all ears. There's generally at least one or two great options in any town, you just have to ask the locals.

Moving the Tag sounds fun. Rob, will you pass through Portsmouth, RI on the way there or should we pick a meeting place?

I'll make the suggestion to meet at the dunkin donuts off Exit 8 on rte 24, Dunkin is at N41 45.097 W71 07.313 or 4171 Main Street, Fall River.

I can lead to the tag via Freetown, Berkley, Lakeville and into Rochester. Great Scenic route through farmland and ponds. After that, someone else can lead to wherever we go.

Now just have to decide on a time.
