Amazing Western Massachusetts

Here is a short video of Dual Sport riding in Western Massachusetts .

Make sure to click on the gear on the lower right and then on 1080p.

This was shot with a Sony Action cam.

Enjoyed that TMT footage! The classical music was different than most ride vids and a nice touch!

Nice country for off road riding!

I was in Dalton in 1973 for the ISDT. Good times.

I knew a young lady there , her parents owned Ayrhill Farms in Adams,but that was 53 years ago.

Wow! Wow!

Hi Spinalcracker,

I guess the video wasn't viewable in TapaTalk. But I just got home and viewed BOTH videos, your TMT ride and your Vermont Covered Bridge video. Wow. Wow. Bravo. You captured the essential joy of New England country riding...the farms, fields, forests, and beautiful historical structures and homes. I loved watching it and recognized a lot of it. I'm in Fairfield County, CT, but routinely ride up into the Litchfield Hills, Berkshires, and even southern VT.

If you're at all interested or curious, here's my ride report on the TMT from last summer (from my motoblog): http://longitudeandgratitude.com/201...e-by-the-book/ I have a short riding video somewhere in it, but it's nothing compared to yours. Still, hope you enjoy.

Keep shooting! Video on 1080 looks amazing.

Thanks for shooting that video Mike. Very well done. I sometimes take for granted that we live in such a great place for dual sport riding.

We did this ride on May 3. In the lower elevations the trees were budding. Up in the hill towns the buds came 2 weeks later.

LOL. I know that pile of manure at 2:25 all too well! I think the Berkshire Big Adventure Ride covers some of these roads. Great video.
