The Northern NY Sucks Report.....

First off, let me say that Northern NY sucks! You'll see why in the pictures...

First off look at how overcrowded it is, I mean seriously, look how close my neighbors are.


Heading down the road there is just nothing whatsoever to look at.


And the traffic, don't even get me started on how bad it is up here!



At least there is no smog I guess....


Back to the traffic....


Visibility is only so-so at best...






Putting a few miles on tonight....


See what I mean about marginal visibility?






I think there is A car up there?


And all those buildings blocking out the skyline, sheesh!






Been out on the road no more than an hour and the sun is setting, darn short days....


DE PLANE BOSS DE PLANE!!!!




Even the clouds are funky up here



Sun is still working its way down


Who said KLX mirrors don't vibrate?!


Intense focus......


Put the stock overdrive sprocket back on a few weeks back



Still focused....


Not much to focus on though.....


Hey look, a radiator shroud....





And thats all folks, just a 30 mile trip around my neighborhood

Lately we haven't even been getting snow till January. Dec. 24 2006 it was 45 degrees out. Rode to my (ex-now) GF's X-mas party with the jacket vents open and spent the afternoon outside with just a long sleeve shirt and jeans on. What trails there are that are open up here stay snow covered for a long time due to the tree canopy. And even after the snow is gone you get to find the occasional ice patch......exciting at times...

Are you sure you weren't in Ohio? Or maybe Indiana? Check a map at the next gas stop.

Looks a bit like Vermont, only flatter. And it actually has a horizon! I'm so used to being able to see no farther than the hill across the valley that horizons like yours fascinate me!

Yeah, it gets a bit white up here. Cold, too. 70F yesterday. In four months our high will likely be 90 degrees cooler than that. Keeps the riff raff from settling here.

Nice area to ride.

Just keep an eye out for Deer in the evenings - of course you know that.

As far as deer go, I saw 6 but they were too far off the road for pics, same for the buffalo farm, just dark blobs in the pictures. I did have a deer race me down a dirt road then do a crazy flying kick maneuver as it shot across in front of me earlier in the day.

I should head to the Adirondacks when fall is really in swing, the mix of plains with mountains makes for some great views. I'm about 45 minutes or so from the Adirondack park area.

I'm a few hours North of there. Near Potsdam, Massena, and the ST. Lawrence Seaway. Half hour from Cornwall, Ontario.
