I don't know if I'll be able to make it, but if I can I will.

Just a heads up to everyone that likes to carry, you will be entering the Socialist Republik of Massachusetts. If you are found with your firearm and don't have a MA carry permit, you are phucked.

I'd say medium might be something a little more than that. That sounds more like a slow ride.

Thank you for the suggestions, but I am going to stick to the original route because that is the one I know. I don't want to lead people off on roads I'm unfamiliar with. But....now I know where I'm heading on my next solo ride....

It will be 10-15 over, maybe a little more. No triple digits, nothing crazy, no stupid passes. As Smutty said below, I have received "constructive criticism" before that it was more of a slow ride, than a medium. I would say its slightly faster than you would likely drive your car, on the same roads.

I can't make this. Wish I could, it looks like a great route.

Okay, thanks. I typically keep it at 10 over or thereabouts to avoid police interference but a bit faster is cool.

Question: If you're on a 2-lane and come up on a line of several cars following a truck, do you pin it to win it over the double yellow, or wait for a passing zone?

To me that's a stupid pass. To some it's Tuesday. Been on rides like that... and it's one reason I rarely do the group thing.

Depending on how helping my buddy swap a motor on Saturday goes...maybe I'll come put some miles on the bike...

...or maybe I'll just show up in my car in shorts and a t shirt and try to challenge this statement.
