    Sorry, been slammed with pre-riding the BBA and a camp and ride weekend at Pachaug
    I should have time to find it tonight.
    And welcome to the asylum bluebutterfly. Not sure what you ride but the Berkshire Big Bike Adventure is a fantastic way to meet a bunch of local ADV riders.
    Also watch the CT hot dog thread, it's about time we start riding mid week.

    Here's a couple old tracks
    I last rode Track 004 in 2014 or 2015. There's some dirt roads, an easy trail or two and some fun slab

    Thanks for the tracks! I didn't see the "hot dog" thread but, I when not traveling, I "work" from home so... Mid-week rides sound good!

    I did part of this today. Great mix of fun paved back roads and dirt roads. Highlights today were N Kent No 1 and Easter Mountain Road. Excited to do more of these soon!

    2018 Berkshire Big Adventure
    LINK for faceBook

    This is pretty much the best Big Bike Adventure ride in our area and should not be missed.
    We've been pre-riding like crazy and cleared a bunch of wood out of the hero sections on Saturday.

    Still have to clear Sundays ride but most the hero sections on that have already been done.

    All sections were done by an accomplished rider on a 990 Adventure with Mitas E-07 rear, sorry, not sure of the front.

    A set of knobbies and some off road experience and most will be fine

    Anyone in Western CT want to go riding Sunday? Something like this route would be nice. Starting like 10am..? I am open for ideas.

    Think I might try the tracks from Southford to Colebrook tomorrow. Anyone seeing a '12 DL650 with NY plates go puttering past give a wave. (Just use all five fingers!!)

    Yup. A little later boat than I intended but it was all good. Followed the more easterly route, going up through Mohawk Forest and Goshen. Stopped in Bantam for a decent Reuben too. The original thought was to loop around towards N. Canaan and come down along the west side but I always seem to forget about the slower pace - which isn't a bad thing. Still about 240 miles for the day.

    Two thoughts kept popping up along the ride. First, I really should stop putting it off and just upgrade the 'Stroms' suspension and second, I'm now pretty sure I'll need that right shoulder surgery. That IS getting put off until winter though. :-)

    A big thank you to the OP and any others that took the time to record and post these for us all. I definitely benefited from your work.:beer
