Adirondack Park 1 day 377 miles

Started 8am Saturday June 6 and hit the road. First stop Warrensburg NY (25 minutes from Lake George) for a bike rally. We then hit the twisties thru Indain Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Inlet, Old Forge and then home. We did some stops and scenic viewing sites. Now have 1100 miles on the new glide, and I love this bike. Night and day from the buffeting I use to experience on my Ultra. I use to feel like I was beat up after a 400 mile day on my Ultra. There were 20mph cross winds all day and at the end of the day, I felt almost as good as when I started. Nothing like the shark nose!

Looks and sounds like a fun day. Would have had to bring the fly rod for that stream. Like the color.

We are fortunate in upstate NY to have great places to ride. If only the roads weren't so beat up

We took the Thruway for the first 100 miles. I can't believe how sh*tty that road is. Our toll dollars at work!

A group of us from New Brunswick also went thru the Adirondacks on Sat. Jun 6th. Great ride - lots of bikes. We did the Catskills on Sunday, another great ride. Upstate NY has some very fine roads indeed !!!
