Are there any flights from the US to Cuba, or would a trip to Canada or Mexico be the first leg?

Jerry, I'm trying to fit in a 10ish day ride this summer. Possibly in June. Up the puppy dog to the NNAT, then, time permitting into Quebec and back home somehow. Haven't figured that part out yet. If you , or anyone else is interested in all or part, let me know. At least for the northern most section, it'd be good to have someone else as much as I enjoy being a loner

I would be interested is a CnR type ride in NH, Vt, or Maine...
Something with a loop of 90 miles or so... (relaxed day ride..)
Say a Thurs up, Fri & Sat ride, and Sunday return...

So if there is such a thing... I may have missed it...

If not, I looked at doing something in the Mt Washington area,
(but would go somewhere else as well, just looking for dirt roads)

Here is a .gdb file of some routes, which I have not ridden and don't know how well they would work... so there would be an experimental aspect to the ride...

Maybe May or June to get the summer off to a good start...
Just wondering if this would be of interest to anyone..?

Have you considered the Roaming Rally Explorer Edition? It's a few days of remote riding in Quebec suited for big bikes. I'll also be on that ride. Here is the thread link.

Hi Jim,
I have been looking over the NNAT the past few days as well...
I saw an extension that goes into Canada... and loops to the east and then a return on the Sunrise Trail in Maine.
So this is very interesting to me...

Do you think a stock wwr tank have the range?

Santa brought a IMS 3.0 gallon. That, plus a couple 1L bottles I think should suffice? I vaguely remember someone in the NNAT thread saying the furthest between gas was around 75 miles. Could be wrong though.

Fwiw, I've done the Sunrise from Ellsworth to Calais twice and loved it both times. To be legal, you'll need to register as an ATV in Maine, IIRC, I paid $75 for a 1 year tag on the GS. They also do short term tags, but I go up there several times in a year and wanted access to the whole system.

Twilight error. Can you provide any details, threads, or maps of this Sunrise trail. I am up in Enfield and have ridden to Calais for the bike week. Looking for more dirt, and would appreciate any input. Getting a ATV pass is great input.
