Right..so, moving right along, this is the story of Mr. Nutty and his brief (maybe) trip around the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate (real upstate. not that fake "oh, I live in Pookipsee" shit. that ain't upstate, kids.), New York.

My time with Mr. Nutty started with a bang, not a whimper when I rescued it/him from the dark, scary confines of a guardrail next to a covered bridge in Vermont, placed there by the Evil Dr. Boatman. I was so excited to save The Nutster that I forgot to take a picture of my bike at the scene, and act which caused much consternation and hand wringing amongst the faithful, but ultimately ended with laughter, cause Motorcycle People are the Coolest People there are.

Sing it with me now..."People.......people who like motorcycle people...."

Maybe not.

Our first order of business was the much anticipated and ballyhooed Adirondack Tag Game 100th Tag Extravaganza and Show. You never heard of it? Well, we ballyhooed the shit out of it. We even extravaganza'd it a little. We're a simple folk, ya see.




The Extravaganza got more...extravagant with every mile ridden:




All the way to the Tail O The Pup, where we may have ballyhooed a little, but I ain't sayin. What happens in the 'Daks, stays in the 'Daks:



By the way, every eatery claims to be in the "The Heart Of The Adirondacks". There outta be a study, I tell ya.


Burger:




After we were all Ballyhooed and Extravaganza'd out, I headed back to Long Lake to put my nefarious plan into action...or possibly to place The Nuttinator in his new, hopefully brief hiding spot.

Welcome to Long Lake, New York. (We're comin into town from the South on 30 here...I suggest you do the same.) That's upstate. The real upstate:



It's a tourist town, for sure. Hotels out number the residents three to one. Really. I looked it up.


If you were of the Nutty Doc (Duc??) type, we have a place for you:




Sing it with me now....."Ah....found....mah....thrill...(bah dum, bah dah dah dum)...ooohn Blueberry Hill..."



Maybe not:

(I wonder if that's really the hill in question, the one he found his "thrill" on? It's right next to the road, lotsa traffic through there. Hmm. That's kinda sexy!)


Um...ya know, fook it. I ain't touching this one:




Little further on down the road we spot this sign (hopefully):




Take a right right (right? Yeah, right) after it:



There's even a little white arrow spray painted on the road to help you along. I thought of everything, I tell ya.


You can go straight or you can go right...or you can run straight into this truck and boat...but I recommend bearing right:




Orta be lookin at this (minus my bike):



Enter on the far right side, down three gears and let off the brakes early, flick it in before the crest, drop your knee and hard on the gas at the exit, drifting the back end all the way out to the paint


Go on up the hill...



Wide open, tucked in under the paint, tach at the redline and shift second, third, fourth, you should be just pulling fifth gear as you wheelie over the crest and out of sight


Follow the pavement to the right (I don't know where that road goes if you don't turn. Gotta check the out sometime.)



Hard on the brakes, back tire wavering in the air, downshift all the way to first for this tight right


Keep rollin:



Hug the inside of the right, short shift to third and breath it just a little as you enter the left, then pin it


You're doin great:



If you're riding like my instructions there's no way in hell you're gonna make that next right, and will probably die a fiery death in those rocks straight ahead. may as well make it spectacular


Hah! See that pavilion? (Did you know Pavilion is spelled with one "L"? I didn't know that till just now. It's French, ya know. Pavilion. It means "To Pavil". Fascinating stuff, I'm sure):




Yep, there's my bike parked there in the pavilion:




Gettin closer to my bike. Parked there. In the pavilion:




Bike. Pavilion:



Yup, there's my bike parked there at the pavilion. I wanna be really fuckin clear on this part: That's my bike. It's at the site of the tag drop. In the pavilion. I'm typing hard. Are we clear on this?:




K. See that number 6 on the floor of the pavilion right by the front tire of my bike? In the pavilion? At the tag drop?:




Go stand on it and gaze over the beautiful view of Long Lake. Notice the details of the pole right in front of you: The water thingy on the ground, the electrical thingies on the pole, the subtle shading. Bold, yet stately:




Lets walk up to the pole, shall we? Hmm...gotta water spigot thingy on the other side:



Boy there's some fine work right there...was Crankshaft here??


That's our pole. Now...look up...alllll the way up:




Fookon 'Ell, Mate! It's the Mr. Nut Job!! Whassa he hiding up dere about?




BTW, this is BYOCB if you're a short arse like me:




Whelp...there it is kids. The (dah, daa daa DAAAAA!!) USA TOR drop, all official-like, and including a picture of my bike. In the pavilion. At the drop.

We be out.

I can vouch that the bike in the picture is indeed Chuck's trusted mount, as I admired it at the Adirondack Tag get-together yesterday. In fact, Chuck showed me the nut (that sounds wrong), and it had Boatman engraved on it (that sounds even worse).

Unfortunately, I am doing all of the work that I postponed from yesterday, or that nut would be moving right now!

Speaking of moving, I'd better be, or pile of work will still be there tomorrow.

Thumb

is that really your bike Chuck?

now my question.....if I'm standing on the 6, in front of your bike (I presume it's your bike again now.... ), how would I be seeing the lake, the post, the water thingy, the spigot, the nekid girls dancing an flailing them selves with laural boughs...the....wha?
ohhhhhhhh you mean stand on the 9.....and then you look out over the lake....i get it....
day-um Chuck this is all so cornfuzing.........and the meds are rapidly wearing off man.....
ya see them six's and nine's all look the same when they are tattoo'd on the back of my skull, at least I thinkthey are a tatoo....been there since I can remember.... but in order to see them I have to look in my mirror, and precariously peer into the mirror of the bike parked behind mine.....and then the 666 turns to 999....or sumpin' like that.....
nice bike Chuck.....

good job man, and yes, I'm sure we could manage to get in lot's of trouble if alowed to mingle in public on bikes....
do you have a bike Chuck? What kind? Mine is silver kinda,

If Sixes were Nines...Jimi would be proud!

Yeah, good catch: the Six needs to become a Nine before one can see the lake.

Thanks for pointing that out. Good luck with those hallucinations - I hear they get better with age. I sure hope so!
