I finally got my bike back and it is a blast. I cant wait to push thhe limits a bit and try new things. I went out to Groton long point this evening and got a bunch of dirty looks from rich old people as I cruised down the road along the shore, their kids were all smiles though:)
I want to find some other SM's to ride with ever other weekend or whatever, I live in south eastern CT but I dont mind throwing my bike in the truck and meeting up somewhere. I do know a lot of good backroads around haddam, old lyme, ledyard and this area. Let me know where everyone is.
Also, I signed up for a supermoto school at beaverrun in July. About 10 years ago, I was 19 and my cousin paid for me to go with him to skip barber racing school. One of my best memories and I still use many sklls that I learned today. I knew when I bought a race bike that I wanted to do a school and when I saw that a professional was holding a course about 10 hours away I knew I had to go, so anyone else thats interested, I have a truck, trailer and wouldn't mind soe company. My wife doesn't want to go because she thinks I'm going to enter the beginer class race that sunday and embarass her, I guess I have to prove myself first, or maybe i'll just embarass myself:thumbup: I dont care I own a bike that was built to race, might as well have some fun with it

I'm up in Canton, but I've ridden from Canton to Plainville then down to Saybrook Point and back with Bjtitsngolf and a couple other buddies. There are a few guys down by the shore, and a couple guys up in my area. It would be cool to get a big group togeather like the NC/MD guys have and do a good ride.

PM the other guys and let them know we're trying to get some rides together. I hven't seen another SM yet when riding, althiugh I do get a lot of looks and double takes. I'm trying not to be too much of a hooligan when riding but these bikes are like a devil sitting on your shoulder telling you to take the sidewalk when your stuc in traffic, I was tempted to put it up i a wheelie a few times today but at the last second I remembered that I never really wheelied motorcycle. Its a good thing I dont have the P-up yet

I live all of...1 minute from Marcus Dairy. I'm always down for a ride, but never know when I can. I'd definitely be down for a ride, if it starts too far away I'll just toss the bike in the truck and drive there.

Lets ride this coming sunday, I should have my power up by then. It looks like I'm the only one in eastern part of state so we should probably meet up in the central or western part of the state. Who can ride and anyone know of good roads to ride somewhere around center of CT, I'm still thinking the shore would be nice but down for anyting

Lets go guys....anybody not afraid of the cold/morning?

Anyone interested in an early am sortie?

Open to either Middletown or Branford start points.

Same deal as always....

Type: Med. Pace
Gear: Helmet, Gloves, Jacket, Boots <Required>
Time: 6:00 am Meet 6:15 kickstands up
Loc: Starbucks Branford or Walgreens Middletown (whatever!)
Passing: Safe Cage passing only.

Beginning should be cold, but should heat up quickly. If we start in Branford, I'll do the usual route, Middletown will be a mix of Haddam/Killingworth/east Haddam.....hopyard/castle/etc.

Well that was one hell of a ride, up past Hartford, into Granby then north to the berkshires, blasted around, ended up near limerock park, Rt7/202 area, grabbed 9 somewhere (my gps pootered out 1/2 way in) and headed back down south to home.....you CT guys out there!??!?!?

I was worried about the bike, that was the farthest I've been on one run on it before, but it performed satisfactorily...I need to check/read the plug, and sort out my crankcase vent, but otherwise, not a hiccup!

And I learned how bad the highway sucks on a 'sumo! My ass/neck are killing me!

Hey your not the only one in the southeast. I am new on here, but I live right in Preston. I am just starting out, but I would be down to ride sometime. I am always cruising around North Stonington and Preston. I would like to hear more about that supermoto class too.

:anim_peep: I'm close, but I'm afraid of the morning, 6am is the worst hour of the day:headshake
No way man, 6am is the BEST time of the day.....especially Sundays, no traffic, no construction, hardly any cops (unless they're in the donut shop!).

We have some of our best rides start at 5-6am, and end just before noon. I'd rather ride with my friends in solitaire than ride around a bunch of fog-headed cagers trying to remove my spleen with their fenders!

Im going to have to start finding interesting ways to get to that side of the state. I ride more than that distance before 8am but so far everytime I head east the roads are just no fun.
