We are doing a Sunday (August 7) ride around the Monadnock, NH area. Nothing is set in stone yet (time, tracks, etc), just a few hours of riding around some DS stuff with emphasis on off-road. We got 2 (maybe 4) riders, so if one or two more want to tag along let me know. 6 total is about the max, I would say, so it doesn't turn into an unpleasant day.

Very interested, Tom, but lacking in talent. Pix 2,3 and 4 of your post #8 look to be over my head. I ran into some Class IV on Dodge Road in Chester yesterday that almost ate my lunch, but looked easier than your pix.

The town highway maps don't have road names, so you have to open google maps and switch back and forth to figure out a route with road names.
http://maps.vermont.gov/imf/sites/AN...jsp/launch.jsp has road names but is a bit clunky (you need to switch to the roads layer and then use the identify tool (the i-in-a-circle) to find out the road name. The big plus is that it will give you both the road name and the town highway number.

Back on-topic, if any of you are thinking about a big-bike-friendly ride in (or near) central/northern Vermont, I'd be very likely to be game. I have knobbies for my 1150, but I don't claim to be particularly skilled in employing them.

I'd love to go, how does one get an appropriate sticker from the NH gov't? I'm in Southern VT near Wilmington so it ain't that far to go...

Most NH dealers sell stickers (I think like $56 for the year). Most dealers are also closed on Sundays.

If interested, PM me. I think we have 1-2 spots still open. What are you riding?

Did some great riding in windham today. Does anyone know anything about the "Meadowsend Timber Lands"? Open for recreation but I can't find anything solid that we can or can't ride there. Lots of great trails and miles and miles of powerlines.

I'm on a dr650 btw.

Probably best to just contact them directly and ask about a specific site of theirs:

Meadowsend Timberlands LTD 420 Main Street
PO box 966
New London, NH 03257
Tel: 603-526-8686
Fax: 603-526-8690

Of course that ruins your plausible deniability excuse.
