Riding in Northern NH and Maine
I am blessed with opportunity to travel to make my living and so I travel with my RV and enclosed trailer that can also stow my Bobber Black. I live in south Alabama where the roads are straight and flat. Not very exciting for motorcycling. We do have beaches here in south AL, so beach runs can be a little more interesting, but traffic is heavy. So given the chance, I am always anxious to ride in other parts of the states.
So this week and last I am in Northern New Hampshire and last weekend the aircraft was on the ground waiting on parts, so I got free to ride on Sunday. The weather was unbelievably perfect, sunny and in the 70s F. The route I planned took me through Northern New Hampshire and into Maine. I left North Stratford, NH on Hwy 3. to Colebrook, then I took Hwy 26 through Dixville Notch State Park (pretty cool) to Errol, NH and picked up Hwy 16. Hwy 16 takes you on a great run up and around Mooselookmeguntic Lake and Pleasant Island. Great roads and vistas. Then I connected to Route 17 which I though was better than 16.
Total run 200 miles. Made 1 fuel stop at Oquossoc, ME and a couple of pull offs for scenic views. Pic attached is at the North end of Pleasant Island in Maine looking south. I did have my spare LaRosa Fuel Bottle with me just in case. Gave me a wee bit of peace of mind.
Tackle and solve the really tough items immediately, the impossible, give that an extra day!
