    I have the current gpx tracks for a very big loop through Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont loaded and ready to go. I want to do this on my little crf250L in the next couple weeks. I guess my question is specifically for the Hamster and Puppy Dog trails for those who know, am I going to be ok for gas stops with the tiny 110 mile range on that bike? Thanks

    Just get gas when you see it. You should be fine, although my anxiety takes over and I always carry a small fuel bottle. I recommend you do the same, but you'll likely be fine. If you take off down class 4 trails and go wander a lot you could get in trouble. In the end, get gas when you see it.

    I agree with levain; just gas up when and where you can. You will be very close to gas almost everywhere on the mid-state, puppy dog and tomato. You should also be fine on the southern half of the Hamster. IMO the only place you may have a problem finding gas is on the norther part of the Hampster route, so i would recommend scouting and noting gas stops for that area before you hit it. Though pretty tame on a dual sport like a CRF250, this will be a scenic and fun ride. Enjoy.
