Having lived in the Adirondacks around Saranac lake if anyone ever wants some hints on where the fun roads are. Let me know. My info may be a bit dated but I was there for two years.

I'd like to de-badge my V-Strom and put something there on the tank, I love the shark mouth deal but don't want to be a copy cat. I've thought about some bomber nose art deal.

Like this?



You could put a pin-up picture and put vivid dadas underneath, keeps everyone guessing!

Flint Ridge was freakin' awesome. I can see why you guys like it so much. It's right up there with the Baby Burr for awesomeness.

I was able to ride everything including the enduro loops. Only thing I skipped was a hill climb at the end because of being so damn tired. ;)

I saw Bob Ramsey, RXCrider, Entrepre-neer, and a few others but forgot their names. ;)

Back From MI

This followed me back from MI on Sat. Wife is all happy to be back on the road with this roadster or whatever it is. She sold her bike in 2006 and has been out of the operators seat for awhile. Riding on the back with me is not to pleasurable for most people. She made the 400 mile Michigan trip with no problems.



Also the Dog approved.

Cool!

Is riding on the front of you pleasurable for her, at least?

I contacted Meef personally but he wasn't able to find his route sheet, understandably because it was so long ago. Anyway, if anyone is able to dig one up, or even a gpx file or anything, I'd be very appreciative. You can PM it to me or even email tvigesaa@ashland.edu if it's not too much trouble. Again, whether anyone has it or not, thank you.
I just sent you an email with both the original route sheet and the route as I laid it out in Mapsource prior to the trip. I have my actual track log somewhere too, but I can't find it right now. Enjoy!

Very slick Tim. I nearly bought one myself, but got a screaming deal on a barely used Versys. I really like the looks of the Honda over the Versys or Strom, and I like the little tricks like the "trunk"

With her control issues, I would guess yes. Plus the fact that when I am without clothes I repulse myself.

I've really been thinking about one of those NC's to use as a commuter/trip bike and save the KTM for playing with on fun roads.

How do you like it? It seems like it would be the polar opposite of a KTM supermoto, and that's kinda what i need. A little balance in the garage.
