Last but definitely not least was Merlin III (Phil) on his expertly ridden pristine R1150 GS.
All of these guys are a class act and I would ride with them anywhere. We had spectacular scenery, interaction with the locals(vt people are always colorful), good food, challenging terrain and great company. I even got a bit muddy.
...whew, crazy week @ work, finally got some time to chime in here...

Mucho thanks to Clark for another amazing CroMag! Fun chillaxing with you and Ms. Liz in the shack swapping stories!
Hats off to Beez, Gail and the rest for high entertainment Friday night - laughed my ass off! What was the clear liquid again?
Finally great ride as noted above by Lee on Saturday...I sent more photos to Mike guys, if you want copies, PM me.

Looking forward to CM 2013!

Until then, be well, see you on the roads...

Hit me back on 12/22 to see if it is on!

I reserved the park for the 19th through the 22nd next September...so there will be something going on.

If Hawk shows up with a stub fingered flat-top toe-head riding bitch on that KLR, I am going to have to close it down though. Unless, he has the fuel buffalo too.

Rob (kiwi93) cleaned Davis Road nicely.





The wrong turn...



He was climbing towards the camera. Tough hill.

Then he had the audacity to say we were both "a little sloppy".


































Just a little?

I think I just spit coffee out of my nose.

Always a pleasure riding with you Mike.

I love the commentary at the end of the vid.

Its too bad we couldn't show Kyle a better time, where the riding didn't suck

Also, a big thanks to Clark for keeping this whole thing on track, and organizing such a great time.

Yes .... IN FOR NEXT YEAR.

-Rob

To Kurt, Mike, Larry, David, Terry,

Thank you for coming on the ride with me. I loved taking you all through some of my private stock of great roads! The thing is, there are so many more to share, too!

Oh, I don't know if I mentioned this, but a good share of the roads we went on are the same roads that I would go out at 2 in the morning and practice on with the rally car. You know those tight twisty dirt roads we were on (including Lincoln Gap), yep, would terrorize the woods in the middle of the night on them.









If anyone is ever coming up this way, always feel free to get in touch. At any time I'm ready to go out on a ride and show people around, or if you want, I can help create a route for you. Then again, mapping out a route is an easy thing to do. It's hard to find a bad road in Vermont.

ADKBeemer and everyone I got a chance to talk with, what a great time, awesome conversations, and amazing stories. And I'm sorry that there were so many people that I didn't get a chance to talk to. Well there's always next year.

Clark, so much can be said, but the most powerful words are thank you for taking care of us all!

Enjoy,


Liz

So, maybe a skid plate, and something better than street tires were in order...

We had fun with some Gaps after these back roads.

Kyle, hi!

Did you notice the helipad on the east side of the last red building/hangar on Liberty Road? There are stories to go with that place.

Thumb Sweet!

Great vids Kyle!

I couldn't help but chuckle everytime I saw the little silver camera attached to your silver helmet.

It reminded me of "mini me" - or an obscure reference to a Family Guy episode: "helmet guy needs some love".

Yes I did miss it. I couldn't even tell you what road we were on most of the time, even with a GPS!
