Been putting off both of mine, sick of surgeries and re-habs. I’ll keep going as long as I can!

Dang forum is almost like a ghost town now. What happened did all the sporty owners get old and trade for road sofas? I took a blast down toward cape cod today but got cold in Wareham area so headed back home by way of a bunch of little farm areas in Rochester, middleboro, and lakeville. Nice day all in all hope some of you got out on the quadcams.

I still have my Sportster.

I sold my sport touring bike and bought that road sofa. I have to say the couch does fit my needs well if I were to go down to one bike.

The Sportster is registered and ready to ride... and is always fun.

It seeems i post a lot more when the riding season gets going around here.

I still have both of mine. And my Heritage.

Being that I signed up for the Hoka Hey in June I need to be putting some miles in before the start. Not sure when because there is too much going on.

Cruised lovely back roads of Massachusetts yesterday with my Spyder buddy Carol, had lunch at the Pigpark (excellent recommendation mick42! Your thumb must be healed by now) then buzzed up to the Enfield Lookout at Quabbin Reservoir for some gorgeous views. Great day but the pollen clouds were brutal omg!

Xena: next time out cruising in this area, try going a few miles more north into Barre and try the StoneCow BBQ and Brewery. I’ve had really great and not so great meals there. Like all roadside BBQ joints, it’s a roll of the dice on that days meal. Always lots of bikers on the weekends and busy.
Later.

Thanks I would rather stick with Pig Park it was fantastic and the reviews are all positive too. Hope you’re healed up and back in the saddle. ����

Cool. Been there a couple times. Very nice riding in Vermont but wasn’t impressed with their ribs. Pigpark was fall off the bone delish!
