    Hi Dick,
    Good to hear from you. That does look interesting. Let me mull it around for a while and get back to ya. Like all motorcycle camp outs, it will be weather dependent. It sounds a lot like the Mohawk Trail camp out - no plan!! I like that. I hope all is well with you and yours. All's well here. Thanks for reaching out.
    Ride safe.

    Hi Dick,
    As we were leaving the campground this summer, I noticed your Rox risers. I was going to ask you about them but you were saddled up and running. The recent post about a happy user got me thinking again how I've always felt that I was reaching out for the bars. I'd like to feel better about the ergonomics before I think about a seat upgrade: that a more relaxed arm position might allow me to sit back into the more comfortable part of my seat. I'd love you take on that upgrade.
    Also, I'm pricing the "anti-vibe" one that the poster was talking about. I was going to get them until I found out they were $50+ more. I haven't had an issue with vibration in my bars.. Did you get those?
    Thanks for your thoughts, Dick.

    Don't mind me Dick. I just saw the dates. For some reason, I had it in my pea brain that it was THIS weekend.
    That weekend may work for me. I'll let you know when it gets closer.

    Trapperdick, where are those mountains in your avatar? I am from MA and have been in ME quite a few times. In fact, my brother used to live in Skowhegan before he passed.

    Hi Dick, Saw Bridgton on one of your posts so looked at your profile. Looks like you bought your Wee at Street's? I just picked up a new Wee Adv model there Friday. I only live about 5 miles from Streets in Cumberland. Been riding BMW's the last 10 years, but nearly 30 years of Jap bikes prior to that. So are you liking your Wee? I'm coming off an 04 BMW R1150 GS Adventure, so shed some weight and hoping for 15-20mpg more as well as less maintenance. Some of my bikes and trips here: mainuh's Photos : Motorcycles | SmugMug

    Ride safe and maybe see you on the road sometime!

    Hi Steve,
    My father was born on the Carpenter Farm, which was, the last I knew, a working farm and guest house,,,his name was Earl Carpenter, born in 1900. They wouldn't know who I am and probably wouldn't know him. I rode by the farm once and now I know why he always wanted to back to Moretown. It's a beautiful area. Thanks for the reply......Dick Carpenter

    As you probably know, Moretown is the next town over from Waitsfield. I've lived here 25 years so I might know your family. Let me know when you are headed this way and we can either hook up for a ride or I can turn you on to some great riding.
