Great pics.
Thanks for sharing.

I am a Mystic boy myself, born and raised there.
I sure do miss New England for riding.

Great report

It's always a pleasure to read something where the person is just plain happy and enjoying the experience, poor weather or any other set backs be darned.

Especially love the picture in post #5. So inviting looking

The pics are super high quality, nice shots. Good trip man, practically same distance I took to go from New Haven to the RedNEK rendezvous last weekend.

Props for going out there on your own though, im not equipped for that yet.

OP Here...

Hey, a huge thanks to all you guys that have posted in this thread. So far I'm really liking this forum - It seems to be one place where riders of all skills and tastes can come together in the spirit of THE RIDE... whether they're on a BMW, a Harley, a KLR, or a Royal Enfield, everybody's in it for the adventure, not the labels or the judgement (for the most part haha, a few of these threads notwithstanding). And it doesn't seem to matter if the adventure is one afternoon on your local roads, or months spent going across the continents - there's a common respect, and a shared love of the two-wheeled life. So thanks for the kind words and for doing your part to keep this forum informative and encouraging.

Enough babbling...Here's me back in my 'hood this afternoon somewhere on Lantern Hill Rd...trying to get some riding in before the storms...

The XC is wonderful and yes you will want to keep the Scram. It is very versatile in its own right. I have three different sets of pipes for it depending on how I want to set it up. As for extended range...I just came back from the Bennington Bash in VT and two folks rode up from Birmingham, AL on a Bonnie and a Scrambler. So...the Scram can do it but maybe not as quickly and comfortably but mine cruises nicely on the slab at 80-85 w/o buzzing (but I wasn't going to tell my wife that or I wouldn't have the XC). I'm almost 53 and I need to stake my claim. I've lost all control of the house, I do have the garage & my two bikes and a small place in the fridge for some beers (alas the garage has a beer fridge!!!) Enjoy!! If you are ever out in the WNY area let me know and we can hit the Finger Lakes, Allegany Mtns, etc. Plenty of good people to ride with on Tigers and Scrams and my Harley pals aren't so bad either...lol You need to go to The Bash next year!!!!

Sweet ride you have there... and great report.

Lots of great riding here in CT - but do make that trip to Maine! Maine coast and the lakes region are certainly not going to disappoint

Thanks for the report. Gotta' like the Scrambler. It's on my bucket list to own one some day.

Glad you liked our little state. Lot's of great riding can be found here and sometimes the weather cooperates.
