New Tag = New Twist!!






The twist you ask??? The front of my bike is in NY and the rear in CT. You have the chance to bag 2 tags in 1 stop if you wish to take on the responsibility.

Got it ... got 'em? My pics are close, but I couldn't remember exactly how you shot yours Boatman.







Thanks for placing this tag still near enough to me so I would make a run for it. I went for a very scenic 2 hour ride.

First off, not sure if riding a geared down 250 with motocross tires in the rain on tar is a great idea. Second, not sure how good an idea it is navigating off a folded paper NYS map when riding around in CT in the rain :-)

Anyway, I sure had fun because I really didn't know where the tag was and knew I would have to search for it. When I left it was sunny ... headed down 22 and the rain started at Millerton. Went down to Wassaic looking for County Route 3. Since I couldn't find Rt 3, I finally turned off somewhere before Dover and headed east. Found Rt 341 and when I got to Macedonia State Forest I figured I was headed wrong and decided to go into the SF to find a Ranger to talk to. After a very nice dirt road ride for a mile I found one at the main office. He didn't know where Hitchcock Corners was ... but he had a map. I spotted this little hamlet called Amenia Union decided to head there because it stratled the border ... and I saw the most straight forward way there was through he SF another couple miles of dirt road and beautiful scenery. After I came out of the SF it was only a few miles of back roads to the tag. Took a few shots and headed back North because I was cold and wet. Rain stopped after I passed Millerton and I dried out along the way home.

My conclusion after all this ... is I am definitely getting another bike. Probably a KTM 990 or F800 GS. Going to start looking for a real adventure bike now and save my 250 and knobbies for the trails.

Sounds like you had a real adventure, so I'd say you already have a real adventure bike.

New tag. Mountain scape identification (no signs).



And building on the state line theme. After you snap the above shot ... turn around 180 degrees to snap this state line welcome.
