    Closer you get to holderness, the better it is, I'd say.
    Might pull it off the quick/fun run loop list for a bit.
    That sucks. The 113's are fun roads when they're in good shape. Last I remember them being fresh was when I had my TL-R. That was quite a while ago!

    Re: Where did you ride today?

    Yeah, if I'm heading out for 1 to 2 hrs, I'm more likely to go play on the east side of the big lake these days(109/171/153/all the in betweens/etc). Long term plan is to get an adv bike with suspenders to handle the bumps but that's likely not happening til the mini-mes are a little older(5 to 10 yrs maybe). Even though it's bumpy, the ol red girl still rustles the jimmys though.

    Celebrated my last day of training at my new job today. Played 18 in the morning and took the bike out for 100 miles. Nothing noteworthy but it was a beautiful day to be on the bike

    That has to be one of the worst places to get false neutrals

    Yup. Definitely a pucker moment for sure there. Not that I think that anywhere on that course is a good place for a false neutral to occur.

    Re: Where did you ride today?

    Did a 220+ mile trip yesterday. Mixed main roads & back roads, up into the White Mountains through a couple notches, late lunch in Lincoln, then the Kanc, then hightailed it home via main roads. Five bikes and two trikes for most of the trip. Stopped at some scenic areas to take the edge off, etc.

    Beautiful weather, but the colors weren't quite full yet. I was really suprised. While we hit some heavy traffic spots, it wasn't as bad as I expected. Mostly because we were going the opposite way most of time tourists were fighting to get home. By the time we headed south to get home, the traffic heading that way was flowing good.

    The dickhead with the Mercedes (Mass plates) who blocked an entire travel lane on the Kanc while he was SOMEWHERE taking pictures definitely took the cake. They nosed in at a full parking area, leaving the entire rear end of the car sticking out into the travel lane. They should be shot.

    TONS of motorcycles out there yesterday, everywhere we went.

    Re: Where did you ride today?

    Rode yesterday to work, I only hit 1 streetlight the whole way which is great.
    Rode a couple hours after through rowley, Ipswich and Hamilton, no clue where just went.
    DRZ is running great after the jet kit with no lag or flat spots whatsoever.
    Actually really like the bike for non highway rides.
    Just hit 1047 miles

    Took my newly built by me Ironhead sportster for a 20 miles shake down run around Sturbridge. It did not leave me stranded as i assumed it would. Might range a bit further tonight.

    Re: Where did you ride today?

    First ride in two weeks today, thanks to a knee issue (I'm old). Out on the ZRX again, a 95-mile local loop, all in MA, mid-morning to early afternoon, the least traffic time for a weekday, some of my usual scenic roads, from Arlington out Route 2 west to Lexington, gassed up, then through Concord, Carlisle, Acton, Westford, Groton, Ayer, Lancaster, Harvard with a stop on Prospect Hill Road, then back roads through Littleton, Carlisle, Concord, and 5-mile blast on Route 2 home. I really like the feel of the new handlebar, Renthal superbike, just 1.5" wider than stock, with a bolt-on cross bar, and I always liked the feel of thick-wall aluminum bars. I've put 1900 miles on the bike since getting it last December.

    Thinking about a Sunday morning pre-game spin. Probably just a couple/few hours, just not sure where yet.

    I'm not sure if it'll be Saturday or Sunday now. Yes, I'm a hopeless fan of football and the Patriots game is at 1:00. With the temps & shorter days, that won't really leave me what I consider quality time. I kind of have get-it-done-before-winter plans Saturday and I'm not entirely sure how long that'll all take. So there's that. But I definitely need a couple/few hours of wind this weekend.

    A couple of shots out at Damon Point which I found by taking a turn I’d never taken.

    Remembered to bring a proper camera.
