Did you ride Bear Notch Road, about 10 miles east of the pass? Lots of nice twisties.
Yes I did! Actually it was because it was described as a "seasonal" road, which here in Michigan means an unmaintained dirt road / forest service road. I couldn't find a lot in that area, in the way of dirt, although I did venture down Tripoli Rd for a bit. I "aborted the mission" when I realized I might not get back to Mt. Washington before the cut-off though.
Went on our anniversary trip last week, of course I took my Strom, " it always goes with me " had great weather in Shenandoah NP and put 250 miles on her, she passed 47,000 trouble free miles.
Out of over 25 motorcycles in my 41 yrs of riding it's by far my favorite bike.
What is your favorite thing about the Vstrom.
That sounds like a great trip. I’m only doing weekends with my Glee but really want to plan something for next year. I mention VT before, but now you’ve got me keen on NH. Did you do a lot of trails? Or a mix?
There was so much to see, I barely scratched the surface- put in some big miles so it was about 99% pavement. The first day was 704 miles, the day I returned was 866 miles. Trip total was something over 2800.
I do know that around Gorham, NH, where I stayed a few days, there is plenty of off-roading, and ATVs are allowed on roadways in certain areas. The White Mountains are very impressive, and I'm thinking of returning next summer to do some tent-camping.

Finally visited Hawks Nest
Stone Church in Cragsmoor
Best ride I’ve done. Covered close to 250 miles. Back by 3p and then played tennis for 2 hours.
No picture but I'm looking for a reasonably priced 2014 Vstrom 1000 set up for a taller (6'-4") rider. Would do a fly-n-ride if located within 1000 miles of Georgia.
Well.... it's reliable, smooth, effortless to ride, last tank got 65.6 mpg ( in Shenandoah 2 up ), goes as well on a forest service road as it does on gravel, as it does on 2 lane, as it does on the super slab, other than the air filter easy and cheap to maintain, lots of after market support, I can meet the Sheriff doing 75-80 in a 55 and he don't even look at me......so unassuming I suppose, quiet, ........that's it I guess...
having fun on local gravel
@gary_a_gooner while you were touring the NW corner of NJ, I held down the SE corner! East Point Lighthouse on the Delaware Bay
My visit to Hawks Nest a few months ago.
I've been to Hawk's Nest a couple of times, but these pics you guys put up didn't look familiar. Oooh! Different "Hawk's Nest!" The one I went to was in West Virginia. (It's a state park there.)
@RedEX this Hawks Nest is in Port Jervis, NY
M.S., that shot of your bike and the Africa Twin, at sunset, is exceptional!
@RedEX, Thank you! I'll pass that on to my friend who took the picture. All I can claim is riding & parking there!
More from Spain!
