Been up it a number of times by motorcycle...Always enjoyable but a teensie intimidating the first time.

I've always enjoyed going up Mt. Washington. It's the coming down that always worried me.
I haven't been up on the v-strom yet. Maybe this year...
From a trip up the Auto Road in August of 2012.
Mrs Trip summited on her TTR125!
Just the view. I've had my Gold Wing up there twice and would love to ride my Wee up it.
I took my Ducati up there last year with some friends. I found it to be incredibly frustrating as I was constantly on the clutch stuck behind some cager. Maybe you just need to be first in line when the road opens
Went up in Aug 2012. My plan was get there early to beat the clouds. Backfired! Was heading for VT for the weekend by 1Pm the clouds cleared.
This is at 8:30 you can barley see the bike on the right.
Not too bad below the top.
Five hours later heading for Stowe VT!
I've been hiking and riding motorcycles most of my life. I've hiked Mt Wahington many times, summer and winter, but never been up there on a motorcycle. One reason is traffic. I've heard that riding is painful when you get stuck behind a slow moving 4-wheeler. Is that tue? Is passing possible?
After a few aborted attemps to go up due to crap weather we finally hit the right day. A hot and sunny 88 degrees at the base, 57 degrees at the summitt.
Not a tough decision!
Here is a video I shot as well,

Last year, lucked out and had a beautiful day.
A perfect time for a ride up - sun and no wind. It rained and was cloudy the whole 4 days I was in the area. Cleared up the day I was heading for Maine and couldn't pass it up.
Does this count?
YES, that counts for double!!!
How do we know you didn't make that sign and set this up in your backyard during a storm???
Seriously though, well done!
It was a little warmer when I was there!
