Hi Dane,

I am up in Coastal NH. If I can offer any assistance on your journey thru New England, I would be glad to help. If you need some maintenance, oil change, tire change (I have a No-Mar changer), or a place to stay with a home cooked meal, please PM me for contact info. I wish you the best of luck!

Bill

I wouldn't make it. I pack almost that heavy to go work and the gym. I'd need a side car or trailer.

Safe journey!

Ride update

Starting a 8000 mile journey this Friday-image.jpgWe left Texas Friday evening and rode in the rain to Slidell Louisiana. Saturday was a 550 mile ride all in the pouring rain to Knoxville Tennessee. Not a fun day! The hyper had no problems in the wet. Sunday we started our journey on the Blue Ridge Mountain parkway, at Cherokee NC and rode to Boone NC and spent the night. Monday we finished the parkway in Waynesboro VA. Riding skyline drive tomorrow.I highly recommend any part of the blue ridge parkway it's all good curve after curve with scenic views.

Any recommended rodes for Vermont and Maine?
