Me and the wifey met up with our riding partners in Moosup, CT this morning and headed up to Mass. They lead the way on their 08' Vision and we meandered along the backroads till we rolled into Wachusett Mountain State Park. Two bucks to get in and ride to the top of the summit (newly paved:)). It rises 2006 feet where we parked and walked up to the lookout tower. The view was limited due to the thick haze, but the breeze was a welcome refreshment against our skin. We rode back down and headed south for some chow at the Black and White Grille in Spencer, Ma. We always stop here when we make this run; great food and friendly service. thumb up

The new Lloydz filter really showed it's usefulness today. I had much more low end grunt/pull than I had before with the Victory filter and the wifey said the D&D's sound louder as well. Yes, it does, but it's more of a growl than a head-splitting booming. I like it! :D

All in all, it was a fun day, even with the temps in the low 90's and a dew point in the low 70's. That's what a 210 mile round trip ride in August is all about. cheers

Maybe it was a little cooler at that elevation...but it's still been brutal down at sea level. Sounds like a nice ride.
I finally had to take the Cee Bailey 'Flectors off. This has been an uncommonly humid summer in the East.

Glad you had a good day. A ride on a hot and humid day is still better than sitting indoors having air conditioned air flowing around you. Today is suppose to be a near perfect day in CT. Ride if ya can. :)

Rode the XC to work this morning around 5:30....63 cool degrees was a welcome relief. The ride back home will be really nice. thumb up

Ron,

Just watched the You-Tube video of last years event in Middletown and saw you on your XC. I can't make it, but have a great time. The weather will be ideal. cheers

Thanks for reminding me Dave. I had forgotten that I was a movie star. :ltr:

I have only missed one of the Middletown events over the years. I enjoy it and it's only 20 minutes from my house. I wind up seeing old friends everywhere as I walk around.

PS.. no more dealer rides this year?

I'll have to get your autograph next time I see you. :D

I'm sending you a PM in regards to the dealer rides.
