Of course. I just wish they and Whitehorse Press would stop scheduling on the same day.

Just wondering if anyone has been to pachaug state forest. I plan on going there to do some dirt roads before heading to the twisted throttle open house.

I went as a yankee beemer to a campout there last Fall (can't recall the sponsor of that one offhand). I didn't do much exploring but it looked like a nice spot, though fairly flat....NOT like Mohawk State Forest. Had a lovely ride through eastern CT and southern MA on my way home, too.

Hmmmmm, I didn't know there were rideable dirt roads in the MSF. I was thinking of scooting out there, soon, to check it out before the June camping thing. Thanks for mentioning them.

I can't eat either offering right now anyway and both destinations are highway rides for me.

I'll get to Whitehorse later this year, five hours round trip. Don't have the time today. Twisted is an hour away.

EDIT: Been and gone to TT today, lotsa bikes, and I like the new digs. Erik says they aren't going schedule on the same day as Whitehorse next year. As to the food, the burgers looked much better than they did last time I was there in 2008. Maybe by next year I can eat one.

I went to Whitehorse.....Great day, it wasn't as hot as last year. The weather was just about right, the food was good and they had a good crowd. It's the best bike show that I go to all year. I really enjoyed it...........TD

Different Day

To those of you who came - Thank you. It was a great day. We have next year already in ink for the 10th of May which if Whitehorse is to follow with the last two open house dates will be the weekend after ours. No more excuses - we'll se you on May 10, 2014 and hopefully before that. Here are some PHOTOS from the day.
