New Zumo 665 on the Ural and hitting the TNJT!

Got the new Zumo mounted up nice and tight with the wiring out of the way where it shouldn't get snagged, melted or pinched.

I think I have the TNJT file loaded and I'll be heading out to Atsion tomorrow with a buddy to try out the loops around there.

I'm sure the best way to test a brand new GPS (my first ever GPS!) is to hook it up in a hurry and head out on the TNJT!

If you see a green Ural on the side of the trail and the owner is scratching his head, stop and help the poor sap.

Hey Rob, what makes each hero section a hero section??? Are they still doable with a fully loaded down bike?? I would not want to try taking a fully loaded bike through miles of deep whoops..or any whoops for that matter.

I am going to be doing the southern sections here in the near future. This first trip, since my buddies have various commitments, I am going to skip the hero sections...and also cause I am doing it solo.

I am planning on picking up section 116 on Rt 72 and starting it from there. Good kick off point from where I live. Doing the rest, and skipping hero sections, it still came out to be about 175 miles per day, each way, there and back....~ 350 miles round trip. I am wondering if that is too ambitious???

Later in season, once I have done it once and have some experience on it, I'd be up for taking the trip with more guys who are interested.

Anyone up for some ad hoc Passaic County fun today via the TNJT?

I did the lower half last year( see my sig)..I'd like to start at the top and see what the rest of it is all about....perhaps this season. Maybe even repeat the bottom part...warmer times though.

May? June? I'm trying to do either the WV or VA or all three this year too. I have 30 days of vacation I have to use by the end of september or I loose it.

I'm also a off road newb so this will be a fairly decent challenge for me

OK, we'll see who else is interested and get a game plan together in a month or so.

The top half of the TNJT appears to be all pavement. I came across the google map of the route on one of the threads, and it looks like bottom half goes thru Pine Barrons down to cape may with a lot more off road.

I'm looking at some DS bikes so I can finally ride in the PB, which looks pretty awesome. I think I might ride the top half on my street bike next month.

The top half is MOSTLY street...all rural and good fun.

But definitely not appropriate for a street bike unless you ride like Sallydog. You've been warned ...there are sections that I was very happy to be on a 250...all legal...but due to the seasonal nature that some dirt roads are maintained you can have some, um, challenges.

There are also some closures in Delaware National Park that open 1 April to 31 October.

But definitely go ride it. 90+% of it is easy-peasy street bike-able. Great fun and some wonderful sights.

Rob's route--so he might have more detail and also correct my perception--this is just my perspective on the ride. It's one of my favorite routes to run when you want to get away on a guided tour of what's right about NJ.

I'm in

I've done part of the top half, and a good majority is pavement, albeit off the beaten path. Still is a great ride though. I'm a relative noob to DS riding as well, but if I group is getting together, count me in.

I did most of the ride on Labor Day weekend last year. Other than a few reroutes due to downed power lines and trees in the northern part of the state, it wasn't too bad. It was an awful lot of fun throwing up roost on the road that goes through Donald Trump's golf course.

Once you get to Great Adventure, the fun begins. Sand, and lots of it.

Funny thing, from about Great Adventure on south, I was following a couple of bike tracks in the sand. Looked like a couple of folks rode the route a day before me, even taking the same wrong turns that I did. And hopping the same log in the trail at one point.

I'm hoping to finish the last southern part that I missed sometime this year, though I'm not sure when I'll be able to get away.

I had some parts in the southern part where I had to creatively make my own path.
