    Looks like Judd's Bridge. Love riding in that area.

    Two packs spaced 10 minutes apart - 19 riders on the day for our Round The Hood Run. Lunch at Denmo's then ice cream back at the start/end point of the ride - Roxbury Market.

    A good day had by all!

    I must have just missed you guys. I hit the Roxbury market for ice cream around 2:30 before heading home after riding down Walter Brook and Judds Bridge along with another 30 miles of other various dirt roads further north and East. Was on the GS, not the lil WR.

    Going to try to start this thread back up - all of us sleepy New Englanders trying to wait this indomidable winter out. Snowing again today. No relief in site with warmer temps until at least the back half of March. Cabin fever is in overdrive - especially with those few teaser days that were in the mid 50s over the last couple months.

    Hope everyone is getting their bikes ready to hit the tar or trail.

    I just want ride my motor sickle.

    Got out for a nice 100 mile loop today.
    Stratford to Roxbury to Sherman into NY and to Ridgefield and then back to Stratford.

    Hope others got out as well. The only other bike I saw was a blue WC GS on 37.

    I started one of my bikes that's not on a charger - does that count?

    Really hope to see some local riders out there today and tomorrow now that we have a small break in the weather. I'll be out tonight and tomorrow - the bikes are sorely in need of a good run.

    Thought I would see many more bikes out today with the sun and warmer temps - maybe tomorrow. . . .

    I did a run to Roxbury and Washington from Stratford this morning to break in a new tire I put on last week. Was back before noon to do chores around the yard. Will head out again tomorrow maybe grab a tag or two.

    Good to see a bunch of folks out today on two wheels - I was over in Dutchess County ripping up the dirt roads in Equine Country.

    All too quiet - I leave town for a couple weeks (MABDR) and the local threads dry up - what gives? Who is riding around here?

    Will be doing a multi-day demo for an online review of the G310gs this coming weekend. Hope to see some area ADV folks out on the roads as I plan to put it through its paces. If I enjoy my experience, I'll place my order the Tuesday following Memorial Day - and order up all the Rally Raid farkles to make it truly ADV worthy.
