I like it so far After this weekend, I have 11000miles on the clock & its never missed a beat. Easy to work on, once you get all the plastic off. Its a great 80/20 type bike. Mostly use it for camping trips like this past weekend, or with the wife as pillion & take all our camping gear. We did 6 days to Ithaca, NY on it this summer & it was rock steady.

I've taken it on some fire & logging roads in NH by the White Mtns. Not much dirt in the Boston area. I also have a XT225 so that see more of the real offroading.

I really like the ease of the Strom. I do love a 1200gs, one day I suppose. Something to look forward to when I get old like the other FF's.

Hey, a quick follow up for those of you who heard my saga of the dead battery on Saturday AM. White Horse Gear just credited me back the full price that I paid them for the battery 13 months ago (I thought that it was only 8 until I found the receipt ). So for any of you FF's that might be thinking about buying something from them, they're the real deal.

Whoot whoot

What a great time. Thanks to Mike for setting this all up, Rich for leading us on the nice ride Saturday and Andy for the fun ride home to NH. I didnt take too many pictures as I was having too much fun.



The nice warm camp site.




Meeting up with the gang.

Tons of fun and cant wait till next year!

Thoughts on next season

After the way we were treated at Buck's this year I and many others feel that we should no longer patronize their business. So I have been doing a little thinking, chatted with a few of the guys over the weekend and talked with EC this week. It seem's I have set myself up as the default "Friday night dinner guy" so I am thinking of moving dinner back in camp.

Here is what I am thinking, I will rent a couple large charcoal grills to cook steaks and maybe chicken if any of you FF's don't eat red meat. Then us locals can make some cold salads potato/macaroni/green. I will keep the menu simple if people don't like what is on the menu then bring your own. Everyone would need to bring there own plates and utensils as well as beverages. I can set everything up Friday afternoon to have dinner that evening. Come next fall I can figure out the cost and logistics and we will do a paypal type prepay for dinner only.

So what do you think

Let me know and we'll get it to you.

I think that is a GREAT idea! Prolly cheaper and easier to interact with others. Let me know if I can assist.

Sounds like a great idea
As cold as it was Friday, I was hankering for a hot bowl of $30 chili...Bucks bowl of cold beans & stewed tomato was a disappoinment
Me being from the Big City and all, I was starting to wonder about you Mainer's for thinking this Bucks was "all that"


With what we gifted to the Bucks, we could do a Friday dinner, Saturday & Sunday breakfast and probably pay for the weekends firewood to boot


Notice I left Saturday night open for Mike's Thai

Dinner at camp sounds good, Buck's service was a letdown. The Thai place on the other hand had pretty good all the way around. Excuse my reach...
