I'm definitely in. The new set of Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires came in last week. Can't wait. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Nothing really new at this time. We have a club meeting in another week so something could come out of there.

Is there any alternative to camping? Like, maybe a Ritz Carlton in the area?

Do you think my 30-year-old Suzuki thumper (SP250) would fit in to this group?

If it still has it's lights and muffler, sure thing. I had an SP600. Ideal for this ride.

Thanks for the responses. Definitely interested, and I suppose someone on a circa 1983 motorcycle can stay at a Super 8 and grab a Dunkin Donuts.

The bike just passed inspection, which means it's in better shape than it's owner, and we both did a couple of miles of snow-covered trails last Saturday and survived unscathed. Good to go!

Never noticed. Google maps has it at 18.5 miles from the start.

Tried Google street view, but the sign isn't in focus.

The Lee, MA Super 8 is only about 100 feet from the Lee, MA Dunkin Donuts. Just one small property between them, which used to be my office.

P.S. - Still riding snowmobiles up this way; I saw them towing the grooming sled along a trail yesterday. Ground is solidly snow covered.

I should unsubscribe. I finally have a bike that would be fun for this ride and we have our club's hare scramble that weekend.
