Maine minor roads and MEME Success
spinedr met the three muchachos from the deep south of Vermont on Friday evening at Sunday River, ME. Sorry others couldn't make it.
We dodged the rain successfully, and had a great day riding on Sat with Guathama leading us up, down, around, and through some spectatuclar scenery on a few of Maine's better minor roads.
spinedr's and my LTs were the only two at the meet that I saw, but a great group of serious motorcyclists were there to chat and kick tires with. Bikes range from old British and BMWs to modern Ducatis and Triumph Speed Triples. A few Japanese bikes and a couple of Harleys (spinedr rode his wife's new HD up on Friday night but made Saturday's ride on his LT; which he rides in a very sporting manner BTW).
Mike Stackhouse, the prime mover behind the Annual Meet of the Maine European Motorcycle Enthusiasts, assured me that there will be a 9th annual meet next year. Nice hotel accomodations, good food, and a group of serious motorcyclists, not the tattoo'd biker types. Good excuse to go for a ride, you'll like it.
Last weekend in July.... mark your calendar and get thyself to Maine next year.
