    I have a friend from NH, he rode it last year and had a great time. I’m working on getting my bike outfitted now. I had a GS all setup, but I have moved that along, I’ve got a Tiger 800xc for now.

    Tigers! Love it. Well, if you’re interested let me know. Looks like we’re somewhat near each other. (Did a track day at Grattan a few days ago..)

    I was planning a trip sometime in September or October, riding solo. Was planning on camping some, motels when needed. Starting south and heading north. What’s your plans? I’m interested.

    I’m going south to north leaving the weekend of September 22. I got the whole week off to do it. Be glad to tagalong with some other folks. I’ve done several of the sections before, but hope to do the whole thing weather permitting.

    No, that bad old four letter word is getting in the way “work”.

    The moderator should ban you for using such a foul word.
    I'm just approaching a year into riding, cutting my teeth in the Pine Barrens. I was trying to figure out some way of getting a several day tour in this year but that other (4) letter word keeps getting in the way "LIFE". I need to set some hard plans for next Spring and stick to it to jump start things.
    Have a great ride all. Do a RR so we can follow. These RR can be quite insightful.

    It just isn’t fair how some 4 letter words like ( boss, work, life, kids, and the biggest WIFE )can change your plans so fast. While other 4 letter words like ( ride ) just doesn’t mean anything.
