The NH Hampster ūüźĻ Ride.

Recommended Posts

TEWKS

A bit premature but WTF! (Oops sorry wrong page) :classic_blush: :classic_biggrin:

It may end up being a solo ride, I haven’t heard from my two local riding buds but it’s ok. The plan is to be ordering Eggs Benedict at 9:00 am tomorrow morning up in Hollis, and then threading the dirty needle up the entire state to the Canadian Border. I’m not sure how far I’ll make it tomorrow so, stay tuned. :classic_wink:

 

Oil and air, check!

Hang in there TEWKS, there is still time for folks to respond. 

 

MotoVermont is closed until Aug 15th, so that messed up my plans for a rental to ride to a Vermont gathering for Chromeheads.org.  Otherwise, i would fly in and join you.   Perhaps next year when things settle down a bit.

 

Keep us posted when you do go.

 

......and, there you go with that GS thing again.  Oh, my.  :whistle:

I’ll be leaving in the am for sure. :thumbsup: It’ll be a good scouting trip to get under my belt for next year, you know, when you have that new GS! :classic_biggrin:

No adventure ride would be complete without an ‚Äúold county rd‚ÄĚ tossed in.

Thanks Bill, you’re kind of the inspiration behind it all! :thumbsup:

edit...that’s not North Wilmington, I’ll need to google map it. North Wilmot NH.

 

Funny it caught my eye because of its architecture and obvious age but how funny, it was built on Tewksbury Hill. :classic_biggrin:

Now I must confess...we are going to break this into a two part trip. Camping is crazy up here, $80 bucks for a tent site in the one place that had a spot. Probably why it’s 80 I guess. 
 

Anyway, two hours down the interstate and I’ll be home. We’ll resume in the next couple of weeks. We did make it up to the Kancamagus.

A few more thoughts on yesterday's ride. I'm gonna guess the southern portion was about 70% dirt and all big bike friendly. We passed a few different spots with at least million dollar views. I wish we pulled over but then again, it's almost impossible to capture it all.

 

I know it didn't happen without pics but, we were on Cape Moonshine Rd (cool name I thought) when we saw a Black Bear. He was on a little offshoot road but I blew past it. I pointed him out to Mitch and he was able to stop. I looped back around and just as I was pulling my camera out he scurried off the road.

 

Mitch has to truck his daughter down to NC next week for school so it might be a couple before we can finish it up but I'm looking forward to it. :thumbsup:

darnit...just saw this now.  I clearly need to keep a closer eye on this board. I'm interested in the next one (although RT on fire roads can be... interesting).

Yeah hopefully we’ll get it completed in two weeks. I don’t know if the northern section is going to get rockier, but the southern half was pretty RT safe. I’ll post something when it’s a go! :thumbsup:

Yup, I did break another zipper tab as I was putting it on and again threatened it with retirement, but my crafty cheapness fixed it right up! :classic_biggrin:

Dude, that was awesome!   Very professionally done.  I am envious of your directorial / editing skills. 

 

I can say that I can manage to download video from my Garmin helmet cam.  I also clipped it to get it under the 15 minutes allowed for my YT account; that is the extent of my editing skills.   I still have a LOT to learn on using my editing software.  Dang, now I do not feel worthy enough after watching that.   :classic_biggrin:

Thanks William, but I'd be really dishonest if I agreed that, that took some level of talent. :grin: My new iPhone whatever # it is did it all, I mean all of it, other than snapping the pics. With a little patience though and some video clips, (didn't take) it could have been way better.

I have an Android phone and have used an iPhone 5S in the past (when it was the latest) for work.  After seeing all your art work using that iPhone, I am convinced that you are trying to lure me over to Apple O/S like you are with the GS thingy.    :5146:

 

Great work either way, Pat.  I was still impressed.

 

Cheers!

PART TWO SATURDAY 8/15/2020

 

So, the second half is planned for next Saturday. The meeting point for anyone interested will be the NH State Liquor and Wine outlet just after the Hooksett toll plaza northbound on I-93 at 8:00 am.

 

Ditched the tent idea for a cabin in Pittsburg with room for six additional people at $40 bucks per.


I suspect some of the northern parts may be a handful on a street only machine so that’s something to keep in mind. :5146:

 

I’ll stoke this storyline back up on Saturday. :thumbsup:
