Sunday, 02/08, Central Jersey

The weather forecasters are predicting a mild day for Sunday. Anyone want to get together for a 300 mile day ride?

I have nothing planned at the moment, I'll just head out for the day by myself if no one wants to join me. Most likely west into PA.

My battery is dead but I figure I can jump the bike.

May join you if all is OK. I do have to do some studying so I will see if i can finish that tomorrow.

Where would you be coming from? I'm in Bridgewater. The plan is to start out at 9:00. I can get you more information if you think you can make it. Here's my plan.

Nice day here in central Connecticut, Don. Did you and Spiros meet up in NJ?

I wound up at the Univ of Connecticut Dairy Bar for my ice cream fix.

No we didn't. his LT suffers from a long winter without the benefit of a battery tender. Looks like it's time to get the battery replaced.

The ride went well and there were 5 of us that made the trip north. The runoff from the melting snow made a mess of everything. The temps ended up in the 30's at points. We weren't all too far south of Binghamton, NY at the furthest northern point of the route. I did however find some fantastic new roads for this summers riding when there will be less water, sand, and ice.

It was an adventurous and exciting day. One of those rides that if we had know what we were in for we may not have done but by pushing on we had an absolute blast.

Nice photo review of a winters day ride, on back roads, in the North East.
