    You wouldn't be disappointed with any of that selection or the MANY on the New England Riders website I linked. That site is pure gold for anyone riding in the northeast (although their Newfoundland selection is a bit sketchy. They also missed other good stuff in the Maritimes - focus clearly on New England and upstate New York)

    In addition to the NER stuff, I have a bunch of great all day Vermont rides (centering around Stowe VT) that we have used on a semi-regular FJR get together. (These are all mapped in Basecamp so they can be uploaded to Garmin directly if you use that) Let me know and I can email the file.

    Thanks, would love any files like that would make it easier. As for Vermont I will be staying in Burlington area headed west and two nights in the Quechee Gorge area coming back.

    The file I have on the all-day Vermont routes are in the Garmin Database format (Basecamp or Mapsource) (.gbd). Also available in a more generic .gpx format. I would need your email address to send either of these along with a description. Send to me via PM if you would like these files.

    There’s a grea5 super twisty dirt road near North Conway but I forget the name, if I remember to ask a friend on ADV I could find out

    We camped in the Waterville Valley area, forget which camp site but campers were very respectful of peace and quiet. You can pay on the honour system if you arrive after dark. Here's a link to the general national forest site https://www.fs.usda.gov/activity/whitemountain/recreation/camping-cabins

    You've probably been already, but we found the slog up Mt. Washington worth it for the view. Beware inexperienced drivers and riders. It took three of us to lift an inverted Goldwing off a rider who'd managed to get it upside down on himself in a downslope ditch. He toppled over from a stop on a soft shoulder. His passenger was still flipping out at him when we left...

    We rode in this area http://www.motorcycle-vermont.com/roads/ride-around-mt-mansfield/ Time of day is everything and some corners in Smugglers Notch were a bit slick due to sap from overhanging trees. Ride safe.

    Yes I had an amazing trip. Sorry to hear about your mechanical troubles. You'll get there!

    I rode Mt Washington 2 weeks ago. Of the three of us, one decided at 4000ft that he didn't want to ho any further. Good choice on his part.

    Myself and the other guy made it all the way. Quite the ecperience.

    There was a antique timed fun race on the go when we were there. One dude in a Chev Nomad lost his brakes coming down around a hairpin, another driver in a 66 mustang managed to get in front of him and drive him into the cliff on side of road . Everyone was alright .... the alternative woul have been bouncing down the side of the mountain.

    That’s weird... I was there on that very same day. Conditions were about as good as they get at the summit. Does your buddy on the Super 10 have several bright yellow fog lights?
