2012 NE Strom Adventure Photos, Post 'em!

Great weekend!!!! Huge thanks to Rich, Randy and everyone who made it possible. The pillion and I had a blast.

I don't have many photos but if others would care to post, please share! Here's a few:

Rich explaining things before the ride.


Heading out to dinner @ Shiloh's Friday night.


Our campsite.


John's bike had so many DIY farkles, the wires looked like a spiders web.


Oh, wait -- there was a spider!



Heading out into the White Mountain National Forest!


We were in the "scenic" group, so we got to stop and take pictures. Nice!



Got more? Post em up!

Avoided the storm front? Hope so.

Nice pix of the nearby-neighborhood. I was chauffeuring the daughter from Chambersburg, PA on Sunday, so my 1,000+ mile-weekend was in a four-wheeler (adolescent females' idea of travelling light is four bags' full -- but she was away for while). Saw only one V-Strom and lots 'n' lots of Hardlys, a few two-wheeled cars (Gold Wings). Did see a couple Hardly riders wearing full-face helmets, which was a surprise. Most were "in uniform."

Hope all made it home without the torrential downpour we ran into after crossing the NH line. Lots of soggy pyrates on the side of the road. One detour because a tree took down a telephone pole, closing the road.

Monday and Tuesday, magnificent. Cooler, drier, bright skies. Maybe next time, schedule permitting.

You were the only one with a decent camera, so post away! Inquiring minds want to see 'em!

I had unbelievably intense rain from near Albany all the way home, to the point that there was water several inches deep on the Taconic, and on I84 folks were going about 20 mph with hazard lights on. I've never been in that kind of weather on a bike before, I could make a fist and see water pouring off the glove that had been squeezed out.

Through NH and VT was great, and most of my way through NY was good as well, but from (I think) about 2 until about 3:30 I was well drenched. Given that my left boot had a hole in it, at least one of my feet was soaked almost immediately, and the other one followed a short while later. Lack of a windscreen probably didn't help, but wouldn't have made all that much difference, probably.

Wow! Look at ALL the V-Stroms! I'll bet you guys had one helluva blast! I'm jealous! Wicked wicked jealous! You might know that I'd rented a beach house for the same damn weekend way back last fall.

Have plans been made for the 2013 Gathering as in "dates"? I do NOT want to make the same mistake for NEXT summer!
