Whiteface Memorial Highway. Summer toll road. Excellent to add to your itinerary.

I like the idea of already planning a nice day trip so the Whiteface Memorial Highway will be at the top of my list this spring. Thanks for the idea to tide me over until the ice melts from my entire driveway!

39 degrees and sunny here today. The rain has stopped and the roads look fairly salt free. I was just down in the garage looking over the bike. It might be a good day for a ride! I just hate to salt and sand it up though.

dragonflylily - definetely go there this season you;ll love it.

bob - first of all congrats on the new RT, a buddy of mine is on his second one, he was on the pre order list for the k1600 but decided he loved the RT too mch

winter has been mild and not too much snow, if the past fall was any indication you would of thought we wold be crushed with snow and frigid temps long ago.

This was the morning of October 28th







While this was yesterday - my kind of winter !
