Sounds great! Let’s hope for an early spring!
That was posted before this latest snow we got. I'm in Fitzwilliam myself. One day we have no snow, the next we have snow! I've had enough of this winter!
Ok but we never lost it right next door here in Richmond. In fact Tuesday I tried going for a ride out back but snow was to soft and deep wound up turning around and coming back home. Funny thing is Wednesday I was heading down to mass too visit a friend and the fog was wicked visibility 100 maybe 150 feet until state line campground where the snow was all but gone and no more fog. By the time I got to the state line the snow was gone. But yet just a few mile west as the crow flies and it's not so. There are spots out there as of my Monday ride that had 1.5 to 2 feet of snow. But right there with you on being done with winter!!!!
It was all pavement.
+1 for done with winter
I took the tw200 for a ride around Kezar lake,found out why you guys call it mud season.Hit some spots I wouldn't take my truck through.
The best is yet to come..........
As most of us are excited to be riding soon and planning summer vacations, I want to put out some details about an upcoming ride for your consideration. Starting on June 25, I’ll be taking a 5-day loop ride to Nova Scotia. Because it was previously mentioned, some inmates in this group showed some initial interest in joining the ride so I’m posting details which are available to view in the links below. The plan is still very fluid at this point so if you are interested in joining me I would welcome your input on the plan as I’ve not ventured to this part of the northeast beyond Acadia.
NS is a great trip - Peggy's Cove, NS interior dirt roads, Cabot Trail and Fundy (Flower Pot formations) were particularly awesome. The Canadian maritime people are extremely friendly but the mosquitoes are vicious - so bring repellent - lots of it. We ferried over from Portland (awesome ferry ride) and rode back down through Calais and spent that night in Bar Harbor, and the next night in North Conway so we could do the sunrise on the Summit of Mt. Washington early the next morning. Awesome 9 days.
@Red Card - This is so professional. Reminds me of this:
Can we come by your place w/ beer and talk it through? (serious question)
One thing not addressed...what do you think overall cost would be? I haven't researched what the ferries cost. I see two nights of paid lodging and one rough camping. I know fuel would be individual based on displacement and over-packing.
@RedCard - your mileage is very ambitious - you're going to want to stop and enjoy some of what you will otherwise be flying by. I'm pretty comfortable doing 400+ (per my sig line) mile days but was properly counseled by those who have ridden there not to rush the pace up in NS. Glad I listened & stuck to ~250 mile days max. You will be happy to spend an extra day or two with a slower pace to sniff the NS lupine vs a remake of the Bataan death march.
I have not determined est. cost but will post some numbers tonight. Beers at my place is always an option so we can discuss details.
I've not estimated cost yet but will post some numbers tonight. Beers at my place to discuss details is always an option. We can go to the game room but we will have to walk around my bike.

Thanks for sharing your insight. I originally plan for 4 days but that was going at break neck speeds. 5 days is better but to your point it would not leave much time for sightseeing. I'll look into a 6 day trip because I don't want to cut anything out like the route north on the Cabot Trail or taking less dirt.
I had originally planned 350 mile days and the folks on the NS threads here kept telling me to back it down. So glad I listened - the days were still full at ~250 miles with everything there is to see along the route. Also, beware of construction delays on the Cabot trail - one road in and out so no go-arounds. That slowed us quite a bit the day we were coming down from Meat Cove.
I like the new baffle you've installed in your muffler!
It keeps the mice out when the bike is stored in the barn.
That looks a lot like an RX3??? Mine . . .
It is. I often read your posts on the CSC forum.
Good to know another RX3 owner in New England!
