    Ironically, I too plan on starting in the Poconos and taking route 30 up to Tupper lake region this summer. Does anyone know of a cheap cottage with a shower in the middle of the Adirondacks?

    30 between blue mountain lake and long lake can be quite fun. Just a warning if you are planning on spirited riding, anything north of amsterdam to northville on a friday afternoon can be painful. You have all the weekenders getting off the Thruway and heading into the lower Adirondacks.

    I ride in the daks about 5 times a year.
    Friday will be to get to the beginning of 30 and a campground
    Leaving Saturday morning from Hancock area. It looks like the riding on
    the southern end could be good too.
    Arrive at the northern end by Saturday evening.
    Camp there go home Sunday.
    Traffic is what it is. Sometimes you get stuck behind a motorhome :ear
    As always plans can change.

    I found a 1995 KTM 620 RXC with 4,500 miles on it. Got it for $700

    Purrs like a kitten (When you can start it)

    Needs a stock air box cover so I can install the battery (Ordered E-bay)
    Needs a decompression cable (Ordered e-bay)
    Fork Seals are leaking.

    GOBS of power. what a beast!

    What are you smoking? I still have a little room to squeeze through the garage!

    Not sure I am going to keep this one, but regardless I am putting it right before I ake a decision, So parts are on the way!

    My Stepson (31 years old) wants to ride it, so might have to keep it for that reason.

    Are you trying to imply that you would like a 620 RXC to ride?

    Yeah, it's terrific! I was going places and trying stuff with confidence I would IN NO WAY take the 950. Up here in the woods around my place there are miles of illegal ATV trails, but it's all sand. I never explored them on the 950 cause with that bike you really don't want to get into things you don't know how to get out of. On the KLR I just charge in, no worries! :evil

    Troopers love to sit at the top of the long straights on Rt. 30 between Long Lake and Blue Mountain Lake. I ride 30 quite a bit. The section from Paul Smiths to the intersection of Rt. 3 is outstanding. See you on the road! Ride safe.
