I'm in NJ, but I'm sure we'll meet up somewhere. I do alot of rides with the ST.N guys/gals. We're always all over New England.


Funny, I've never been to RI.


ROAD TRIP!!! :lol:

I am a Vermonter, just outside of Montpelier, with an 05. She's up for the winter, but am always looking for rides come the season. Not many Feejers up here, but lots of great rides, get in touch come the spring. A sweep through Cape Cod might be fun, especially running the white lines at the Canal bridges. Be in touch......

Gypsy-I used to correspond on the old BB with a dude named Jronmayne who lived in N.S. or Cape Breton, I can't remember which. I don't think he made to switch to this BB, but on a prior trip to Cape Breton, he was very helpful with planning, routes, etc. You might try to reach him for a ride, etc.

Another Mass rider

I live out in the Brookfields and will be picking up a new 06 at D+H cycle this Spring. I sold my 03 FJR and bought a Roadstar. I did not like the cruiser at all. The Roadstar is a great bike, just not for me. I am originally from Barre,VT and ride up there often. I would love to hook up with some New England riders. :D

Just a thought for you people looking for riding buddies. I have used the Sport touring forum STN.net great bunch of people and their website has area specific sections so you can hook up with a few new faces. Believe me there are a few of them out there, much bigger group.

There are lots of us out here from the New England area. There was an active discussion going on for a while (may still be) at the other fjrfoum about a NE-FOG gathering. Perhaps the spring weather will rekindle some interest.
I love riding northern New England: Moosehead and Rangely regions, White Mountains, Green mountains, even an occasional blast to the Adirondacks and Montreal. No shortage of excellent riding in the Northeast. I caged it up to Nova Scotia last summer with the fam. That would make an excellent riding destination also.

Northeast

I've mapped out a Dack ride that will take me from predawn til after dark. I'll post the ride when the time comes so we can meet up for breakfast on the Adirondak Trial.

FjReady,
Did you do Cabot Trail? Which direction is the way to go? Clockwise or counterclockwise? Enough questions? :D

Mr Bill, I did the Cabot Trail last August, clockwise. It is a great ride, altho got caught in a 2 day rainstorm (rode right through most of it). Another rider, Gypsy, was full of info as he lives in NS. He recommends counter-clockwise. He may well have a point, as I ended up pulling out of one place after anothr to keep ahead of the tour buses which seemingly just go round and round. That part was a definite drag, I hate breathing that crap and passing on the Trail requires a certain HIT IT NOW attitude. Rated as one of the 5 best rides in the world.
