Cool, when do they sail the pumpkins, after the Halloween thingy is done, or when they get mushy...? I would love to see that rig launch them.

Thanks,

Follow the web link I posted above for all the details on the Yankee Siege. The schedule is there and they started throwing pumpkins last month. The squash type, not KTMs

The RT is closer to EvilClown right now than it is to me. It's getting some scheduled maintnance and new sneakers. Had to break out the oldie. It was only 35 degrees when I left this morning and there wasn't anywhere to plug in the Gerbings jacket


Figgered you'd have a KDX in that picture but the old Harley is very cool. Was afraid atadloco would walk across the street and bag it first.

Rad, make the time to go see this thing in action. It is that impressive! Nice riding in the area as well.

Hey Gail...



I think we just need to do a little home work... the picture has some good clues in it... you know it is where there is a train track crossing the river and there is a damn of some sort...flood control or power...I'm guessing flood control...

I was looking for a way of overlaying a map of train tracks with a regular map... but I've been crazy busy this week...

Come on now. You can ride across the country two-up but can work with 71 miles?

Sorry about the new tag. I do think its doable. But I only had one hour to go grab the tag and get a new tag because I've been so busy with work.I took tag photos at a couple other spots but they didn't come out so I had to go with that one.

What A-Bone said. There are several elements in that photo which should glue it all together. I'm not trying to be coy here. But its not too difficult to figure out. And I know a couple riders will recognize it without any research.

Good luck!

I only had a couple hours too, so I grabbed the MA tag in Amesbury! I had to get home to the kid!!
