New to the Northeast

Hi all,

I just moved to the Boston area this month from the west coast. I'd love some tips on great rides in the area and any group rides going down prior to winter setting in. I'm a new weestrom (650 right?) owner, I purchased a 2014 shortly after making the move out here. I'm loving the site, and have dove in to farkling.

So far I've got:
Altrider crash bars
Altrider skid plate
Givi 48L trekker side cases
Givi tank bag

Waiting on the fork brace to show up....

Hope to hear from some local guys!

-Brandon

I live in the White Mountains and have very flexible fall work schedule. Let me know if you're up this way.

North Shore MA reporting in. Got some decent riding up this way, the loop up around Gloucester and Rockport is always a nice one. Busy the next couple weekends, but free and clear after that, always looking for Stromtrooper #2 to meet!

Thanks for the info. I'll definitely be looking into some of those rides!!

Side note: anyone planning on making the trek to Maine for the Vintage Motorcycle meet in Owls Head? I am planning to head that way this weekend anyway, and thought I would stop through the event to check it out. PM me if interested in riding up early Saturday.

There is! Check out my Fall Peep Show Part Deux thread in the Events section. One unspoken for site left! Plenty of sites to share though. Good opportunity to meet a fair section of the NE Brethren. I'm going to try to make it to Owls Head on Sat. Look for the blue Wee2.
