    Quick Heads up, if you're coming from the North, 12A is closed between The Walpole Valley Rd and Camp Brook Road. It was a victim of the heavy rains and may not be reopened until fall (according to the NHDOT) :huh , so plan your route accordingly :deal .

    No, but I haven't figgered out yet what the right 'speed' is through there, yet.

    Coming from a 'momentum is your friend' bike to that gutless wonder makes for an interesting transition. It was pretty ugly in the 'stream' today.:lol3

    Absolutely brand new to the ADV rider world here. Saw these posts and have been a trials rider for some time now. Just moved to NH so if some you folks are in the area I am in need of someone to practice with.

    Just got a KTM 990 and am still getting my head wrapped around how best to deal with this thing off road.

    Welcome!

    See 'momentum is your friend' comment in above post with regards to the 990.:deal :lol3

    Maybe when I figger out the trials bike a bit more we can go try them somewhere. Has to be vintage friendly, though.:D

    Southern Maine seems to have a strong trials presence in the Berwick area,
    https://www.facebook.com/RockAndRollTrialsClub
    and Stu at Jack's Cycles (also in Berwick) http://www.jackscycles.com/ can let you know of what's up in that area. I've a friend in the Augusta area who has many , many acres of sections and trails he's been working on. Problem is I enjoy helping him work on trails and sections more than riding my Beta. Any other trials riders in the Kennebec county area? If I can find someone who is even more inept than me, that could be enough incentive to ride.

    FWIW, its open enough for bikes to get through, though legally closed. I prerouted it on the GPS to connect two rides this past weekend. Came upon the closed sign heading north and decided to continue on and check it out. Pretty good wash out to each lane in different areas, but almost an all pavement ride through the closed section. Its too narrow in spots for cars to pass and who knows how stable for any serious weight.

    :lol3 I got "The Look" :huh from the DOT guy when he figured out I was gonna do that, so I stopped and chatted, instead. Hopefully made a good impression instead of pissing anyone off :dunno .

    I saw some signs of work happening up there today, first time since they closed it, so if you head that way, be careful :deal .

    I rolled through about 4 to 5 on Saturday and no one was around other than a couple of local swim hole dippers on the upper side of the worst section. Kind of gave me the impression that it would be a while before work would begin. Cool they're on it.
