Anybody up for a ride this weekend? If you have a passport a good ride to Quebec and back is a good one. From Newport to Houlton is a good ride. Newport to down east or mid coast is good. To the white mountains and back is a good ride. What do you think? Bruce

There is a ride to Mt. Washington this Sunday by the New England Spyder Ryders. I'm pretty sure they are meeting the Christmas Tree Shop in N. Conway at 9 AM. Not sure if I'll be able to make it. I'f someone knows all the details please correct.:dontknow:

This is the ride I will be doing on Saturday. Leaving Tim Hortons in Newport around 8:30 ish. Heading out route 2 to Gilead,(past Bethel) then down route 113 down to Fryburg and back. This will take most all day. Meet at Tim Hortons around 8:00 ish. Bruce

Bruce I think I am free Saturday. Could I meet you in Norridgewock?

If I still lived in Houlton instead of Knoxville, TN, I would join you in a heartbeat. Another good ride would be to Yorks in Perth-Andover (I'm drooling). But if you ever get down to Tenneessee, look me up.

Had a great ride Saturday with Gorcutt and Sandman and my son. I went 285 miles. I have to report my gas mileage for this trip. It is hard to believe. Was full when trip started, topped off tank at 113 miles, took. 2.8 gallons. I fill tank like I always do. Topped off tank when I got home, took 4.9 gallons, mileage was 172 miles. Most of the time we were traveling between 50 and 60 miles per hour. I did travel 50 miles on the interstate traveling home, speed was 71 mph. 113 miles divided by 2.8 = 40.4 mpg. 172 divided by 4.9= 35 mpg. I burn 87 octane. I was in disbelief. I usually average with all around speeds is 33 mpg. :yes::yes::yes: I have a 2011 RTs. SM5, just turned 32,000 miles. Keep on Ryding. Bruce

That is very good gas mileage. You run 87 octane? I try it a couple time and the engine do not seem to respond well. So I use 91 most of the time. I have 31000 miles. :ani29:
