Left Worcester Ma yesterday 9am and headed south to eastern Ct to pick up my girl. We zig zagged our way across the state to the Garlic festival In Bethlehem Ct, an old country fair.

On the way hit the open house at Old School Harley Davidson in Ellington Ct. A band, food and lots of vendors, they have really done a nice job at that dealership.

Great fall colors on the way out, nice temps around 60. Miss the warmer weather but the nice trade off is how well the the bike runs in the cooler temps.

Anything garlic you want was there. We had Bison burgers and Brussels sprouts with garlic sauce for lunch.

A late afternoon start headed home, stopped on the way home to meet ralf75 ending a great day. Back home in eastern Ct 830, a 270 mile day.

Hope to get a few more good rides in before the weather turns.

There was a garlic festival in Grafton NH this weekend too. I haven’t had much time to ride lately. I hope to get in at least one good ride and maybe a few short ones. I go under the knife Nov 9 so my season ends.

Wishing I would have had time to meet up with some of you New Englanders when I was up visiting family in August. Good thing you both were eating the garlic.
Addict, if you get up here next year, please give a holler. Would like to connect.

No kidding on the garlic, thank god it was a long motorcycle ride home 😲. Who's idea was that 😂

I wish I could've made it down yesterday to the festival but I am glad you gave a shout out on your way back home so we had a chance to meet

Amazing to see how many people live close by. Western CT here. Will be doing a nice ride this weekend to get out. Planning on hitting the MC museum in Vernon.

You're right around the corner.

The museum is a good take, call ahead for the hours.

Have fun!

Sounds like y'all had a great time. Nice pics too. Here's to a long autumn and a mild short winter!

What a great day for a nice ride. Beautiful bike, beautiful lady, great food ( except for the brussels sprouts!) and decent temps. So glad to see you out and about and wish I had more bike time. Nice write up, Matt!
