Hurricane Mountain Road is open

I rode the long way home last night, from Portland, ME through Bartlett, NH to home. Rt 113 from Standish through Fryeburg, ME is scenic and twisty, and lightly traveled, a pleasure on the bike. I'm happy to report that Hurricane Mountain Road is open! It's actually in better shape than the town roads on either end! Bear Notch Highway is still closed, and Attitash Mountain still has patches of snow on the slopes, but the North Country is open for riding.

A serious question for you: WR250 or the 650GS? Pondering which one to take. If the riding is more of what we rode together the last time I saw you, I'm taking the 650. If it is more like the trails up my way, I'll take the 250. I know some unpaved roads near Jamaica, but no rough stuff. If it is there to be had, I'll take the baby bike.

Thanks

When I came home from VT on the 5th I thought I saw bikes headed onto Bear Notch, I was on the fly so I didn't see any signs. Pasaconway road was closed though..

Just a friendly reminder to everyone to get your routes together and figure out who you are riding with each day as we are less than 2 weeks away..There are no organized rides planned

Just spoke to a Ranger at jamaica, he was new and seemed a little confused when I said 30 of us on just 3 or 4 sites

We should be all set to show up and just get grouped together. He said a max of 6 per site and we will pass the hat to pay...not sure the price.

If Guy or Sean has a minute to swing in and check on things with the Rangers the reservation is in my name David Chartier from Woolwich.Thanks

There nothing like the trail system that NH has around here, but there are plenty of technical sections that I can link together for a ride if there's interest. If we do that, I may just take the new GasGas 450 out of the garage. . . There's also plenty of plain old dirt roads with good views. So really, it's up to you. Bring what you want to ride and I can make sure you have some fun!

I'll check on things later this week, though I may need a reminder.

It looks even better with my wife on it:



Though the Gas Gas did eject Kirsty from the seat at one point today - note the shoulder:
