    Wish I was, but doing the domestic dance today, Chuck. Have a great time and take/post pics, there are some great patches of peak leaf color out there still.

    I really enjoyed riding yesterday, so much that going out again today was first thing on my mind upon waking this morning. The FJ is proving to be a very good match after the first wave of refinements and I now feel like it is a keeper and worth investing into suspension upgrades. Onward to wearing out the stock tires, including the wee edges.... :ricky. :lol3

    Doesn't get any better than this stretch of weather for riding!
    Made a run up NY side of Champlain up to Willsboro then west to Poko-moonshine and back south through E-town to Schroon Lake and Brant Lake.
    Passed by Tracy Road but sun was on its way down fast. IMG_0288.JPG Looking west from just north of Essex NY.

    Did a family day trip to the Wild Center in Tupper Lake yesterday. I saw more groups of riders than at any time over the summer. I think everyone was feeling the end of season push to ride. Lots of the usual Hardley Decentson running wide in the turns, and one pretty large group of sport bikes pulled over for a piss and brag break at the western end of the Blue Ridge Rd.
    You guys had a beautiful day to ride for sure. Let’s hope after the next few days of rain that we get some more of this sun.

    Ahhh Tracy, Blue Ridge, 28N! I love the ADK and nothing better than craft beer & BBQ in Tupper Lake. My new go to stop, sorry Saranac/Placid.

    We ate at Lisa G’s in LP. Great food, but not inexpensive.

    Yup, I'm riding in tonight, then probably go for a ride tomorrow out of Dexter. This may well be it! Maybe Kevin will see this...maybe even Tom!

    What time you thinking of heading out? I just got back from my 9 month stint in Europe and have a few things to do to my Tenere to get it ready.

    I'm not an early guy either. I'll watch this thread and see how it plays out.

    One of my favorite seasonal roads!
    Jay Mountain Rd from north of E-town cutting across south of Jay Mt through wilderness area to upper Jay.
    Great route!
