    After crossing the Thames River by Mohegan Sun, and turning right/South on Rte 12, be sure to take a left onto State Route 214 about a mile or so down Rte 12. Ride it over to Rte 2 and turn around if you need to stay on 12 but it is a very fun, up and down twisty road.

    I am in Groton now, on Monday, on the way to Twisted Throttle HQ, I'll go north to 214, then east. Terrian is great to ride in.

    Today the MIGHTY DR and I set a personal best. Stop lights. Never stopped at so many on a 200 mile day. :puke1

    Perfect weather. Great roads. Damn near spoiled by cages. Surprised by the traffic.
    East of Durham I satarted to get into the woods. Less horn honking and more live stock and slower drivers. :D

    Higganum Rd is good to go.


    ------
    Monday, I only have a 42 mile drive to Twisted Throttle.

    I will also try and and link up up with an inmate in Warren, RI. That evening or on Tuesday.

    It depends on how things are going.

    Ride to Twisted Throttle HQs.

    Possiby make mod purchase.
    Maybe a wind shield or bar risors. If I had to pick one, wind shield. Just to burn less energy on long trips so I can be fresher late in the day.

    Service department is closed on Monday. So may have to wait until Tuesday to put mods on.

    My buddy has convienced me to leave Groton and take the coast line to R. I.
    Makes sence seeing how I will be in the woods most of tbe trip.

    Does anyone have any stops along the way? I will go as far east as Matunuck State Beach before riding north and riding through R. I. University, then slightly west to the H.Q.


    FWIW, it was nice to ride by the State Hero's school house yesterday. NATHAN HALL.


    Thanks for reading.

    Easy day of riding and sight seeing.

    Talked with some locas for a spell.

    Invited dude to check out ADVrider.

    Good time at Twisted Throttle. James and John helped me out. Tried out wind shield, but decided to just stay slick.
    Took dirt road out back east and other back roads to the 138.

    The bridges over to Middletown and north to Bristol are great.

    Relived that traffic is much lighter in southern Little Rhody.

    116 miles so far.

    Took a good power nap outside hillcrest Pizza.

    Sunny day, but windy.

    No tolls so far. :deal

    Will push to Providetown, CApe cod.

    Good roads, plenty of librarys, nice vjews, and slow speed limits... Well things are a little faster in MA.

    I like it.

    In the evening will turn around and camp on the way back. I doubt I will take the ferry.

    Dry out the rest of tbe Recon 5 sleeping bag.
    Had a good stelath camp in Truro with ok shelter, but the thunderstorm was more than I prepared for. Sunny day, so will be good.

    Continue on 28 toward Woods Hole, and then north toward Framingham.

    Not sure if I will make it. Should leave around 1515 or so.

    Have enjoyed Cape Cod. Interesting flora.

    FWIW, the 28 is kind of fun east of Farmouth. I know a lot of a Accidents happen here.

    Suprised at how warm it is.

    Once you ride for a while the sleeping bag gets packed down.

    Here is the before.

    FWIW

    i think the MIGHTY DR rides the smoothest in 5th gear around 70mph.
    The hand guards are are as calm as Carlos Hathcock on his 93rd confirmed kill day.

    Decided to pass on the Twisted Throttle event tomorrow night. I saw all the traffic on the bridge on the highway 44 exit and was making good time.
    I wouod have stealth camped in Rehoboth again at same spot. 48 hours after the first time.



    I still need to spend a couple of days in Boston before the real fun starts in New Hampshire.:deal

    15 miles from Marine's house. Just off exit 19 on the 495.

    Sounds like you're having a good time on the DR.

    The Cape is tougher between Memorial Day and Labor Day so enjoy it.

    Are you going up the coast towards Maine?

    I was down in RI Monday at the beach. I drove CT Rte 214 in the car. Love that road. Hope you got to try it.

    My boy will drive me to the T, and I will use my Reserve Card, to get a ride to Bean Town.

    Not sure yet where I will ejnd up. Dude from Boston will help me out on that later.

    May link up with inmate or another Marine who is in college there.
    Still working on that.

    New Hampshire will be the premier AO.

    IT'S not going to be quick and quiet like it was with Little Rhodie, it's going to be loud and nasty, my kind of tour.:evil

    Will go to the A. NATIONAL PARK in Maine.

    I did not take the 214, but the 1A and other small roads off tje coast.
