Trip 06 2011 - Memorial Day Weekend
Briefly, I left at 4:00am, May 27th, and 16hrs and 18mins later, (839 miles. A personal best for me!), I ended up in the dooryard of "footloose" and "kayakman", in the Sarnia, Ontario area.
On Saturday, the two Stromtrooper members treated me to a tour of their region; a mix of paved and gravel roads. We rode a total of about 105 miles.
Sunday morning, I shoved off from their homestead at 6:50am, and rode 523 miles to Tupper Lake, New York, and spent the night in a campground on Little Wolf Lake.
This morning, I left Tupper Lake at 6:30am and rode through Rouses Point, across Vermont, New Hampshire, and back home here to Mount Desert Island, Maine, arriving home at 6:00pm, and having covered 478 miles today.
My total distance was 1,945 miles.
The motorcycle performed flawlessly as it always does!
2007 DL-650 (I gave away in 2012 with 111,000 + miles)
