    Guess I'll have to take dirt roads all of the way there to extend it out a bit.


    I am all packed up and ready to go.

    WOW!...Free gifties that are actually USABLE. A SYNTHETIC neck gaiter and a POLYESTER tee shirt! Nice. (I also like the plastic mug.) REAL thoughtful, DirtDaze. I'm already impressed and I haven't even gotten to ride yet.
    For those of you yet to come, pay attention to the speed limits. They ARE watching; especially the 25 mph limits. Luckily I was being a good boy. :-)
    Everybody enjoy!!!!!

    The trail today are very muddy.....a bit more rain tomorrow so if you’re going out riding, be careful. If you are on 80/20s, stay off the rough stuff because your tires are going to muck up instantly in any mud.

    Also, Christen who is the organizer of the event has people in from South Africa who are coming to NH after the weekend to ride. Any chance anyone could track Christen down and give him some ideas or maybe even routes??

    I told him I would post this.

    Thanks!!

    I have edited my photos and they're on Flickr (link) but I'm embedding a few below. Action shots are from my route, the Northeast aka New Hampshire ride. Hard to take photos since the pace was so fast but I did what I could. Everyone appears to have had a great time. Feel free to "steal" my images but just don't edit out the watermark.

    I'll end up posting my vlog from the trip over on my ride report thread. It's personal so I don't want to muck up this thread with commentary and 'vlogger stuff'

    A few pics from the Ridge ride. I had to bail on one section but managed to make it through the rest. Bit off a little more than I could chew.

    Great time this weekend. Big thank you to Adam and all the guides and sweeps that planned and rode the New Hampshire route this weekend. Definitely enjoyed it on the Saturday run. Can’t wait for next year.

    Great job Adam Chandler leading the NH ride on Saturday. It was indeed memorable, as was the VT ride on Thursday. Many thanks to you, the other tour guides and the rest of the volunteers. The demo ride teams from Honda, KTM and Triumph did a great job as well. Now, where were all the vendors? The few who were there were a welcome presence but overall there weren't many. Where was Touratech? Title sponsor, signs everywhere but not physically present as a vendor at all. They elbow out Mosko from exhibiting but don't even show up themselves? What's with that?
