Fuel shouldn't be an issue - probably no more than 50 miles between fuel stops. Fuel up as close to the start as possible. There's fuel at the corner of Route 9 and Route 4 in North Berwick if you're coming from the North, or on Route 9 in Berwick if you're coming from the South. Both are only a few miles from the ride starting point.

Not me, I've got a big tank now. Three whole gallons. I can go 150 miles between fill ups!

This ride is Tiger-able...definitely don't bother with the little bike. Probably be a good little break-in ride for it.

I'm going to truck my bike to the start. I live about 1.5 hours west on the other side of Manchester. I'm not riding the 450 all that way early in the morning across Route 101 before the ride even starts. I'll have a gas can with me if anyone needs to top off in the parking lot.

I assume that I can leave the truck there all day.

This is little bike ride all the way! The Tiger will see its fair share of action very soon.

Sorry, but with much discussion with everyone and the cook and her help we need to get this ride in on Saturday April 21st.

So there it is, Saturday April 21, 2012. Meet at Noble High School, kick stands up at 9:00am
