Hey just noticed regional section. Way too cool. Anyone else for New England??
Cool. I'm in the Springfield area. Do a lot of rides out towards the Bershires. We run 44 out to either 7N. or continue out to Millerton then up 22. Also Vt. etc. Lots of great roads for you to explore. I don't do Americade or any of those. Maybe some day but for me just too many people. LOL Since I drive truck in New England I'm lucky that I know a lot of decent roads including NY up to Plattsburgh, Tupper Lake, Lake Placid, Amsterdam, Catskills etc., Ct., R.I., Vt., Maine and a little of NH. Oh ya of course MA. LOL will be fun to hook up with ya on one of the rides. I run a VN900 Classic LT .Howdy Sea Dog and others. I just spotted regional as well. Your in western Mass, I'm not sure how far west you are but I'm not far from Sheffield. I'll watch this forum and see how it develops, perhaps a group ride could be scheduled. I'm thinking about doing Americade this season. I get together with some of the fellas from the northwest corner of CT for an annual ride to Vermont also. Always looking to explore new rides.
Nope no Hazmat. I let it expire a few years back. I use to run for Martin Brower (McDonalds) After 20 yrs I bailed out took some time off opened a photo studio but economy sucked and overhead killed me. Sooo back to driving truck. I run for Simmons Mattress now. Do a double line haul out to Taunton Ma everynite. Drop and hook which is great for an old fart like me. End of the year me is hanging it up. Turn in keys and join the world of the retired people. Too many yrs too many miles.Hey Dog, Just wondering who you drive for. I work in a factory in Danbury and often get truckers coming in from the Springfield area. Have you a hazmat cert?
I think the Bershires are one of the best places to ride. Traffic not bad and soooooo many back roads. Bit of a haul from Long Island for ya though. Maybe will catch you out there someday. Daughter lives in Lanesboro so I'm out there a bit riding.Cool! Western Mass is so great for riding. I used to live in Southfield, MA and I started and owned The Great Barrington Sign Company for 3 years. The funny thing was I bought a 750 Shadow but had no one to ride with. So after 14 months and under 1,000 miles I sold it! Now I live on long Island, bought a 1600 Classic and am trying to connect with folks to ride in the Berkshires with. Strange, strange world, huh?
