  • heading out Friday morning.

    Taking my new to me Indian on it's first long distance run. I'm heading out from Dayton Ohio towards Maine. I have been having a lot of shoulder pain lately (think I pulled a muscle) but i'm going anyway. I'm just not sure how far i'll make it. The hope is to ride to Maine to get a fresh Lobster dinner. I have up to 10 days (though I don't plan to use them all) and no schedule or place that I really have to be,
    I'm really looking forward to the ride, but wish I had someone going with me. That has both it's positive points and negative ones. Sounds like Vermont really has a lot of nice roads to ride on.
    It's only 1000 miles away going the direct route, but I only plan on being on the interstate for the first 45 minutes, then it's back roads or whatever happens.
    If you live up that way and see me on the road, wave or say hi... i'll be the super good looking guy on the black Indian
    owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that

    Enjoy the ride and ride safe. Post pictures when you get back.
    I will not apologize for being white, being straight or for loving this country.

      Those are the best rides, no schedule. Have fun and enjoy the Lobster. No, savor the Lobster.

        We did something like that last month. A bud and I were gone 8 full days.

        The trip objective was to ride all 574 miles of the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Pkwy. We started at the top at Front Royal VA and had 4 full days to make it to the southern end of the pkwy in Cherokee NC.

        That is the way to bike travel! We stopped when we wanted to. Got off the parkway and plundered around in some of the side roads and small towns. Stayed wherever we ended up. That was a very enjoyable ride instead of being rushed to do it in half that time.

                Sounds like a good trip. I leave Wednesday afternoon for 4 days of riding in the U.P.

                  Hey super good looking and modest guy on a black Indian. Let me know when you are going through the New Hampshire area. I could most likely hook up for the day and show you some great NH roads. Maybe take you through the White Mountains then you could be on your way to Maine.

                    thanks for the offer, but I just got back late last night. I didn't get on the internet any while I was on the road and just saw your offer today. Had a great ride though.
