Works for me...we can firm up details as the date approaches.

To be clear...I'll be on a baby GS...so uber-strafing the slabs is not how I'll be rolling this trip.


No problem,  I've only had the FJR for about a month so I am still feeling it out.

looks like I will be riding down Saturday, staying at least 1 night, will confirm once I have better feeling of things here

I was around Placid today, main roads were getting heavy with traffic, did a detour up 30 to St Regis Falls, beautiful day.

I was trying to get Sue to agree to attend SNOB II with me when she reminded me that we're going to the U2 concert in Moncton on Saturday July 30.  Oops! Forgot about that.  

The things we do for our wives eh!   Lol

Oh well, there's always next year.

A fly in the ointment..

Sand in the gears...

Sadly, I am "out"!  

Will try to get north after Labor Day...en route to Cabot Trail and other venues where fiddle music fills the air.

Thanks for the invite...and I hope to meet you all along the roads.  Ride safe!

Sorry to hear that.  Hope it's not bike related.  I'm doing the NERDs (http://fjrnerds.dyndns.org/) thing on the weekend of Aug 21st.  maybe see you there.   Smile

One weekends to go! I'm writing this from Sutton, where I've escaped from the city and it's heat.

How do you guys feel about 7.8 miles of gravel? I drove through Hazen's Notch, VT earlier this week. Wow, I really had the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. Gravel is packed hard, a few potholes and the longest section of loose gravel was 50 yards long.
Found a great, 10-mile county road between Richford VT and Montgomery VT. Can't wait to ride it on two wheels.
Lastly, for our Sunday ride into NH, I've read somewhere about a great local road that goes east from N. Conway. Rings a bell?

Still working on a QC loop for Saturday that doesn't involve too many straight lines. Wish me luck!

East from N. Conway sounds like Hurricane Mountain Road.  I once described it to someone as a cross between a stair master and a roller coaster.  You can get both wheels off the ground.

Another good road, south out of Bartlett, is Bear Notch Road.  Bear Notch got repaved last year.

Change of plans. Right now it looks like it'll be just me, arriving on Saturday, staying 'til Monday.
I'll let you know if and when things change, again.
Still looking forward to it...

Hey JF,
For some reason I can't send to your e-mail... Headscratch
May I know the address of SNOB Central?

Hey, Dave, I've just emailed you the address and directions.

Hoping you have a smart phone, a laptop or access to a computer on the road, if you've already left...

Weather looks great. Don't forget your passports, folks.

Mine is slowly getting written. I'm also shopping for a new rear tire.


Glenn, you can stop looking for you camera in your cavernous side cases. It's here in Sutton. Let's PM to figure out how to get it from here to there, but I feel a road trip coming.

No sweat.  I am going to be in VT (Staying in Stowe) from 18 August to 21 August. I am sure we can arrange something.  Unless you really are looking forward to visiting CT.   Lol

Thanks for hosting this and tell HH thanks for the great food  Inlove.  Got home about 9:30 because of traffic.

Jimmy is home, safe and sound.  I think I dodged a HUGE storm brewing in NY state by staying in Canada.  Thanks to Helen for all her hard work, and to JF for the wonderful leadership.

I will write a short ride report this year!

A Large thanks to JF, and Helen for another great event, Great food, Great Company, and yes Great Roads.

As always your hospitality was outstanding, and I feel lucky to be a part of SNOB

I loved getting back into NH for a ride, it has been far to long
